After Charlie is given a witness interview by Alan's expensive, power-hungry divorce lawyer, Laura, she sets her sights on him, but warns him that it must be kept a secret, giving him strict ground rules to follow. Unaware of what is going on, Alan is feeling somewhat confident about the possibility of a fair custody/settlement agreement, despite Judith's concerns about Jake living at Uncle Charlie's house on weekends. When Charlie brings home Laura's paralegal to play, and Laura catches them together, Charlie finds her reaction to the situation unacceptable. Alan is dumbfounded when his lawyer tanks his case.

Did You Know?


The core root to Alan's constant, financial problems is actually Charlie's fault. He slept with Alan's lawyer and then broke up with her, before the divorce settlement was over, causing her to give everything to Judith as revenge over Charlie. Alan's economy was actually really solid before. See more »


Charlie: Hey, you still got your old garage door clicker, right?
Alan Harper: Yeah.
Charlie: So... let Judith have the books and then one night maybe someone goes and gets them back.
Alan Harper: Wonderful. Breaking and entering.
Charlie: It's not breaking if you have the clicker!
Alan Harper: More good advice.
Charlie: And it's free! So hang up, let's get that beer.
Alan Harper: Oh, oh sure I'll hold. They're patching me through to her cell phone.

Alan Harper: What's that?

Writers haven't been to law school
10 February 2014 | by See all my reviews

I love any episode of Two and a Half Men where Charlie's misadventures cause drama and pain for Alan (A sack full of Jawea is hilarious in this respect) but this episode really pushes the boundaries of credulity.

Laura sleeping with Charlie is not unethical. However, her actions in the mediation are, where she completely sells Alan out over the property settlement. Such actions in fact constitute legal malpractice, as she is acting without instructions and not in the best interests of her client.

So while Alan may be disgruntled that his case has been delayed, he wouldn't have had to pay a cent to Laura or her firm.
