After spending five episodes this season messing around with $2500-a-night hookers, it looks like Charlie is finally ready to settle down in an age-appropriate relationship whether it was on purpose or not. That also means Charlie was finally brought front and center into the main storyline for the first time this season with "Twanging Your Magic Clanger."
On this week's episode, Charlie asked out his dermatologist, Michelle (Liz Vassey of CSI fame), and freaked out when he found out she wasn't in her mid thirties as she appears, but actually older than him. A quick IMDB search on Vassey will reveal the actress ironically is in her thirties. Guess Charlie was wrong. It wasn't cause she kept such good care of her skin.
Charlie's storyline definitely had us laughing, but as Michelle becomes Charlie's girlfriend over the next couple episode, the jury is still out if we're going to have another Chelsea situation on our hands. At least next week, Rose comes back to stalk Charlie and throw a wrench in his otherwise mature, appropriate relationship.
Alan, meanwhile, perhaps had his most ridiculous plot line yet, and that's impressive given some of the stuff the show has done to the guy over the years. This week? Cheap Alan was unwilling to throw away a perfectly good expiring penis pill and spent the entire weekend masturbating throughout Charlie's home, his car, and the movie theater. Pee Wee Herman would be proud.
Overall, it was a decent effort, but the highlight to us was seeing Charlie back to being the star of his show. He better be at the near two million an episode. You can browse our favorite Two and a Half Men quotes after the jump.

Alan: Think of this way - when she's 70, you're likely to be dead for 10 years. | permalink
Alan: It's not what it looks like.
Charlie: That's a relief cause it looks like you were masturbating to mariachi music in your car.
