Episode cast overview:


Now Frankie has tricked the Harpers into taking her and her daughter Joanie in, she explains that Bob's parents want her declared mentally incompetent in order to get custody. Charlie wants to dump her, but Alan insists on taking them both in. Jake doesn't enjoy the 8 year old's 'romantic' attention. Charlie hates the consolation kisses and compliments, and is stunned when Frankie prefers intimacy with Alan. Charlie rightly warns him he's just falling for his 'damsel in distress', but warns her not to hurt his kid brother. Written by KGF Vissers

Crazy Credits

As with the end of every episode, Chuck Lorre has his own Vanity Card. This episode vanity card reads in part. CHUCK LORRE PRODUCTIONS #115 FOR IMMEDIATE PRESS RELEASE A WHITE KNIGHT FOR DISNEY: Sources in Hollywood announced today that Chuck Lorre has made a friendly bid to purchase the Disney Company. His all cash offer of five million dollars (in small bills) plus a S500 Mercedes with only 34,000 miles, Braebos Rims, and a tricked-out sound system, combined with his successful track record of writing, producing, and creating hits for ABC (Roseanne, Grace Under Fire, Dharma & Greg) offers the Disney stockholders the opportunity to escape the clutches of Cable Giant Comcast. Should his offer be accepted, Lorre plans to create a major motion picture based on the "Teacup" ride and the ride with the fake hippos in the water. As far as ABC was concerned, Lorre said creating hits for Network TV is a very difficult proposition but he doubted he could do much worse than that "Are You Hot?" thing. In exchange for rescuing Disney his only demand was that he be allowed to run the company part time. His reason being he loves writing and producing Two and a Half Men. He did indicate he would like to come in on the weekends to read scripts and approve price increases at theme parks. See more »

The revenge of Alan
15 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

This sixteenth episode is the direct continuation(suite) of the fifteenth we see there Frankie and his(her) daughter settling down at Charlie. We are entitled has a good rather dense episode, stuffed with funny situations. Special mention(distinction) to the girl of rather funny Frankie when she(it) sticks Jake. We also see finally a spread, happy Alan with Frankie and for once a defeated Charlie. The wheel turns(shoots) this time what is interesting from a plot point of view. The dialogs are in the whole of a good level, spiritual, without reaching(affecting) summits. We are enough far from the constant laughter but we are enough amuses and satisfied with the conversely short-lived of the roles. The series continues its path(way) on good solid bases and proves that she can be endowed, mastered even when she makes links between the episodes.
