We're going to start off this review of Two and a Half Men by stating we're unbelivably thrilled that it looks like the demise of the Charlie and Chelsea relationship. While we're not expecting Charlie to remain single forever and the show to keep the same formula, he needs to be with someone that keeps the show entertaining. Rose, anyone?
That said, the ending of Charlie's painful relationship still didn't make "Aye, Aye Captain" one of the strongest of the season. Sure the episode had Berta, Jake and Evelyn all hopping in with great jokes to support Charlie and Alan, but the episode was still much too serious and relationshipy.
We have gone seven season without seeing Charlie Sheen's terrible attempt at acting while crying and we could have gone seven more (if Sheen's felony charges don't stop that). We'll be a little forgiving because, as we started off this review, the relationship ended and our showcan hopefully return to its working formula.
Now for some great Two and a Half Men quotes from an episode that included Charlie vomitting on a baby... as a major plot advancing tool:
Alan: Well done. You sublimated your anger and came from a place of love. You took the high road.
Charlie: Really, is that what you call it? Cause I call it a complete and total betrayal of my testicles.
Alan: If you've done it as much as I have, you'd call it the high road. | permalink
Charlie: I'd never cone on to another guy's fiancee.
Alan: First of all, we don't know he was coming on to Chelsea and secondly I've seen you hit on a bride as she walked down the aisle.
Charlie: It was a joke. I asked her what she was doing later, everyone laughed. | permalink
Alan: What's the forecast?
Charlie: High tonight, low tomorrow, 100% chance of hangover. | permalink
Lady: Oh my god, you threw up on my baby!
Charlie: To be fair, I don't think the carrots were mine. | permalink
Evelyn: I just have one question, did you really vomit on the baby?
Evelyn: Don't beat yourself too much, we've all done that
Charlie: You're kidding?
Evelyn: Of course most of us do it on our own babies. | permalink
