Episode cast overview:


Alan learns that asking Charlie to help him punish Jake makes it harder, the naughty knaves rather play together. Charlie learns, also the hard way, a boy that immature can't be left uncontrolled, he even feeds seagulls till they take over the bedroom. Alan refuses to learn Judith asks him for chores to exploit his domestic skills, even a kiss when he announces to stop coming round on Charlie's advice is just a ploy. Charlie learns ignoring a repentant kid isn't right either. Written by KGF Vissers

Irresponsible Charlie takes a crack at being responsible
5 November 2013 | by (victoria b.c canada) – See all my reviews

Jake is being punished by his father Alan for an incident at his ex wife's (Judith) house. Alan makes it perfectly clear that Jake is not allowed special treatment, or to watch any T.V. Charlie fails to adhere to Alan's demands, and approaches things nonchalantly. He tells Jake politely not to leave rings with his juice-box on his piano, and to not feed the seagulls. Jake doesn't listen, and seagulls end up invading one of the room's in Charlie's house. This episode is so ridiculous, but undeniably hilarious. No matter how ludicrous a bunch of seagulls invading a room is, I always manage to get a lot of laughs out of it. This continues the early trend of Charlie and Jake's bonding. I got a lot of kicks out of watching them play sock golf together. It brought back a lot of memories from playing sock baseball in my house with my Uncle; seeing Charlie do some hilarious announcing made it all the more enjoyable. Alan was still madly in love with Judith, even going as far to be her personal slave when it comes to chores. Everything was slowly coming together for what made this such a classic show. The message of this show is that you should never rely on Charlie when it comes to upholding laws or punishments. The ending is absolutely amazing. I loved how Charlie zings Jake at the end. I won't spoil it, but man is it harsh. This is a fantastic episode. Chances are, you've already seen it, but I'll give it a huge recommendation anyway!


Favorite quote: Alan: I need you to be my eyes and ears. Charlie: OK. But I need you to be my liver and prostate.
