Oh my, this episode was absolutely hilarious! Each character embraces their respective rolls with full force, and the results speak for themselves. Frank, in particular, gives an Oscar worthy performance that made me defecate myself several times throughout my viewing, much to the dismay of my Mom and child with whom I had been viewing.

Sunny is back to it's old ways in this episode and nothing makes me happier. Sweet Dee and Dennis dish out insults, Charlie and Mac do whatever Charlie and Mac do together.

Beware of drug use in episode.

It can cause drug use.

***Recommend 1-2 cans of spray-paint for this episode.***
