During a Thanksgiving dinner, Courtney (Jenny McCarthy) returns after spending three years in prison for conning Charlie out of money. Charlie ditches his family and heads to Vegas with her. He ends up spending the rest of the episode, his money and physical health on the girl. She seems to drain him of everything, but even after he ends up in the hospital he still seems to want to be with Courtney. Alan spends the episode trying to warn Charlie that she's a gold digger. He doesn't seem to care.
