While I will admit I was blown away by the routine at the end of "Mac finds his Pride" absolutely nothing - NOTHING - will ever beat "The Implication" routine. It is a pitch-perfect rundown of rape culture, but as a construct, it can be used beyond that. It's a framework for any situation where one party has implied but very real power over another.

Boss calls you in for weekend work but says "Only if you can do it?" The Implication. Company offers to settle for a pittance or says "see you in court?" The Implication. PhD advisor asks you to grade papers for a class you aren't responsible for? The Implication. Dirty landlord won't give your deposit back by claiming things you didn't do, but you know he can wreck your life with a bad credit report? The Implication.

The possibilities are endless. I'd like to note for the extremely sensitive that I'm not equating rape to any of the other scenarios, just that similar power scenarios play out all day, every day. It's that grey area where people who like to take advantage of other people live. That's why it's so brilliant.

Dee Reynolds, Shaping Americas Youth.  Simultaneously ripping the state of public education and Hollywoods long history of casting white actors in ethnic roles all delivered with the callousness and oblivious nature of the gang.

Danny DeVito tripping balls is somehow the most accurate TV representation of "too much LSD" ever filmed.

I think this was more about ten of the times they were the most terrible, not necessarily the most outrageous.

Most outrageous for me is probably Charlie having an extended sex scene in the skiing episode with the hooker that Frank bought.

If we're going for most terrible, I'd go with the time they pretended to be crippled to get dates, ending up in them crippling and abandoning the guy that fell for D.

The most outrageous was this conversation with Charlie, his mom and his uncle.


Charlie talks to his uncle Jack - It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia

There's an outtake where Charlie's mom says something like "It will be fine, boys will be boys", to which Charlie vehemently responded: "I'm not a boy anymore, I'm a man!", and his uncle gives him that creepy longing look and hopefully offers "We can be men..."

I think the network might have put the brakes on that dialog, but what they left in was creepy enough.

Charlie's illiteracy and Charlie's molestation are always played for laughs, which is not something I've seen any other show do.

So Uncle Jack is the Nightman and Charlie's mom is the Troll?  I've tried analyzing his musical to see into Charlie's mind.

No, I think he means later in the run (s13e5). A pack of kids steal Mac's new bike just like what happened to them when they were little kids. Turns out the ring leader is the son of the guy who stole their bikes when they were kids. They think they killed one of them.

Frank Reynolds' Little Beauties is maybe one of the cringeiest things I've ever laughed hysterically at. It's so wrong. Love the fact that he gets made up to look like a corpse by an undertaker... like the pageant wasn't bad enough without that. And then the hot mic with them talking. Insult not only met injury there, they found out they were siblings, got married, had kids, and those kids hooked up in a dumpster behind the Wendy's. It sort of normalizes every other thing in the series by comparison.

I assumed he was referring to something completely different trying to say that his episode was more outrageous (I don't remember that episode at all, is it still on hulu?)... so I didn't respond... but yes, s13e5 is what I was referring to.
