It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia Charlie's Mom Has Cancer
17 November 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Charlie goes to visit his mom with laundry from everyone. Charlie's mom then tells him that she has surprise Lung Cancer. Charlie and Mac come back from the house and Dennis does not seem sorry for this news. The guys visit Dr. Jinx (Sean Combs) in his garage with his drugs. He try's to help them but is unable. After leaving him Mac decides to go to mass to get some help. Mac seems more into mass then the others do. Mac and Dennis try to show their affection by hugging Charlie. When Dee talks to her psychic it takes him a while to see things. Frank then comes in and some things he says about Frank freaks him out especially when bringing up his dead wife being alive and living. Charlie's mom still wants to go to Dr. Jinx while Charlie is angry at the priest asking for money with his mother having cancer. When Dee and Frank go to see if his wife is alive they find money in the ground. At the bar the guys hold an event to get money to pay for Charlie's mother's cancer. His mother has to wear a bald cap to look more like the cancer is affecting her. After Dr. Jinx's performance Dennis talks about faith to the crowd. Dennis becomes more holey and makes the crowd feel it even though he does not. Charlie's mom then announces that she does not have cancer and that she just wanted to raise money to pay for a statue that the two mom's broke. Dee then comes in to tell Dennis that their mom is alive. When they dig up her it was Frank pulling a prank on them and they saw their dead mother. Funny episode and they ending of it was gross but still great.
