Two and a Half Men Review: "A Bottle of Wine and a Jackhammer"
Wow, Alan. In a move straight of our Charlie's handbook, Alan slept with his ex-girlfriend, Melissa, on his trip to move in with his girlfriend, Lindsey. Actually, in the eight seasons the show's been on, Charlie's actually proven to be loyal in the rare case he has a girlfriend.
So where does that put Alan on the moral chart? Despite Charlie's constant hiring of and attempts to mouth-kiss hookers, we're still placing Alan slightly below him after last night.
Anyways, enough of our preaching. Last night's episode, "A Bottle of Wine and a Jackhammer," was not only very entertaining, but it also moved the show beyond its simple premise of Alan and previously half-man Jake moving in with Charlie
In the first time since Alan briefly married Kandi and had his own condo between seasons, Alan is actually moving out of Charlie's, taking away one and a half men from the Malibu beach house.
So what do you think? Any chance things are going to work out with the mood-swinging Lindsey and Alan is permanently gone, save for trips to the love shack? Could the show still survive with the guys not living together?
While you ponder these deep thoughts, we'll list our favorite Two and a Half Men quotes from the episode:
Alan: Dammit, how do you get a guy to leave your house who doesn't want to go?
Berta: Tell him you missed your period and you're out of pot. It always worked for me. | permalink
Charlie: Everyone has a little baggage. I drink and try to mouth kiss hookers. You, you're cheap annoying and no one like you. | permalink
Alan: What's not to love?
Charlie: I dunno, her mood swings, her idiot teenage son and the fact you need a muscle relaxer, a bottle of wine and a jackhammer to get her off. | permalink
Lindsey: It's okay, Alan. I don't have to have orgasm every time you make love.
Alan: I did my best, it's just that my sinuses are a little block and I needed my mouth for breathing.
Lindsey: Don't worry about it, you were great. "A" for effort.
Alan: But on my report card, it's still going to say incomplete. | permalink
