Did You Know?


Charlie's timeline for when he got the dog painting is perfectly plausible. He claims he got the dog painting in S1E6 "The Gang Finds a Dead Guy" which is believable because it does not show up in his apartment before then. There is also a flashback to S2E8 "The Gang Runs for Office" showing that he had it at that point. See more »

Mac: [wearing goggles] Now I can determine a subject's threat level without him being able to feel my retinal assessment.
Charlie Kelly: Which is a great advantage because the guy can't see how scared Mac is.
Mac: Yes, and- No, that's not what it's about.
Charlie Kelly: Oh, I thought you were scared every time...
Mac: That's classified!

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Pop-Pop: The Final Solution
13 October 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Mac has lost all the weight and he has some new glasses to try make him look cool. In walks a lawyer who comes in with the news that the guys must decide on someones estate if a person dies. Dee then says they should pull the switch but they do not as they feel their grandfather should not be in this hospital surrounded by gone off food. Charlie/Mac come up with a plan to look for a painting they believe may be a treasure, so they run out. The painting if they find it might be an original by Hitler so they ask Frank who has thrown it away. The guys start looking for the painting and find out it was sold to a man who had a German shepherd who died so he got the painting in return. Poppop was a Natzi so when they go to his apartment they watch an old video of summer camping 1981. They learn when the listen to it that the camp was a young Nazi camp which makes them decide to let go of their grandpa. To get used to watching dogs die but they cannot do it as the animals are too cute. Charlie/Mac on the search go to a man's office and see the painting in the middle of so much more pictures. Mac decides to let Charlie go by putting him out. At the hospital the lawyer takes responsibility for letting go of the grandpa. Charlie comes back and plays a villain type as he makes a monologue to Frank/Mac as they learn it was not a Hitler painting but one done by Charlie himself. The grandfather is let go and is still breathing by himself which might take forever for him to go. The ending of this episode was very much like the Citizen Kane with Rosebud which I very much liked. Nice return but I am sad we do not have Fat Mac anymore as it was the funniest thing about last season for me.
