Its Always Sunny: The World Series Defense (10/22/09)

Here is the plot line for tonight’s episode of It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, it looks like green man may be making an appearance. I’ll be back tomorrow with a rundown of the episode.

The World Series Defense

The gang go to court to talk their way out of a parking ticket they got on the night of the final game of the 2008 world series.

(Updated with a transcript of Mac’s love letter to Chase Utley after the jump below.)

When Dennis gets a series of parking tickets worth over $1000, the gang heads to court to plead their case and hopefully get the tickets revoked. The story starts with the gang getting ready for the game at the bar, Frank and Charlie are itching like crazy due to bed bugs as Mac is making Riot Punch (gatorade mixed with everclear to taste) to tailgate. Everyone is wearing Phillies colors except Dennis, until he rips his shirt off displaying paint on his chest. Then they start discussing their plan, apparently in the bottom of the 9th Dennis and Mac are going to start fighting which will cause a distraction while Dee runs out on the field and kisses a player. Charlie then jumps in saying he wants to jump onto the field and run around as Green man, but Mac and Dennis defend the Phillie Phanatic which pisses off Charlie.

It then comes to light that Frank left the tickets back at the apartment so they split up, Charlie and Dennis head to the parking lot to tailgate while Frank, Mac and Dee head to the apartment to get the tickets only to find out that the building is being fumigated for bed bugs. Mac decides that he’s going to scale the building, cut a hole in the tent and climb in, thus limiting the exposure time.

Meanwhile at the parking lot Dennis and Charlie try to figure out a way to sneak in to the game. Charlie seems to think that there is a secret tunnel from the stadium back to the hotel so that opposing players can get to the hotel safely without Phillies’ fans beating them. The other idea is for Dennis to jump in front of a car and then threaten to sue unless the passengers give them their tickets. Charlie can’t do it because he’s already done it too many times and is afraid this time could be his last, but Dennis convinces him to do it anyways. So they stand behind a parked car waiting for an expensive car to drive by so he can jump in front of it, but as a Mercedes comes down the lot Charlie pushes Dennis in front of the car. And on top of all of that the passengers of the car saw Charlie push Dennis so they didn’t give up the tickets.

Back at the apartment building Mac fails miserably at scaling the building because he can’t get a good grip, but Frank has an idea. He finds a garden hose and sucks on one end as he goes in the building, leaving the other end outside to pump fresh air in the building. While Frank is doing this Dee is trying to decide who to run out on the field and kiss. Mac pushes Chase Utley because apparently he wrote a love letter to him, he even put cute little stickers on it. And this isn’t the only letter that Mac as written… apparently Mac wants him to read the letter and realize that he’s always wanted a younger brother, but then Dee informs him that Chase is like 5 years younger than him. It is then that they realize that the hose that Frank was using to breath fresh air was no longer on the outside of the building so they go in to save him, but all end up choking in the hallway with the tickets nowhere to be found.

So back at the parking lot Dennis is all banged up after getting the car, but Charlie has an idea on how to get tickets. He puts on Greenman and goes up and starts talking to the Phillie Phanatic who starts giving him shit. Eventually Charlie loses it and starts beating on the Phanatic, which then causes the other Philly fans to start beating up Charlie.

So Mac, Dennis and Frank make their way to the parking lot with their eyes full of blood from the poison. They need to come up with another way to get into the game and off the top of his head Mac comes up with scaling the facade, but Dennis informs him that he only works out his glamor muscles and there’s no way he could scale the stadium, which then leads to a push-up contest both in the parking lot and in the court room.

Charlie wanders back over after getting hammered by the Phillies fans which reminds Dee of the tunnel under the hotel. Charlie and Dee seem to be the only ones that believe the rumors of the tunnel, but with no other option the gang heads to the hotel basement to look for it. They find a room that looks like it could lead to a tunnel, it turns out it’s a linen closet, but Charlie is sure that there is a secret tunnel behind a shelf because that’s where the secret tunnels are in scooby doo. While they are looking for a tunnel the door locks behind them and locks them in. It’s then that Charlie finds a secret tunnel which leads them into a dungeon with murdered Philly fans.

Cut back to the court room and the judge asks if they really found the dungeon, but it was a lie to spice up the story because they felt that the judge was losing interest. It then comes to light that the gang was stuck in the linen closet for 6 days which is how the parking tickets were amassed. The judge decides that the parking tickets stand and Charlie and Dennis call kangaroo court and then Charlie brings up his counter-suit against the Fanatic and is promptly escorted out of the court room.

It was a decent episode, not as great as some of the previous ones this season, but it was nice to see Greenman in another episode and the preview for next week looks pretty good. What did you guys think of last nights episode?

And based on popular search results pertaining to this post I have transcribed Mac’s Chase Utley love letter after the jump, enjoy.

Mac’s “Love” Letter to Chase Utley

Dear Chase, (oh shit there’s stickers)

I feel like I can call you Chase because you and me are so much alike. I would love to meet you someday, it would be great to have a catch. I know I can’t throw as fast as you, but I think you would be impressed with my speed. I love your hair. You run fast. Did you have a good relationship with your father? Me neither. These are all things we can talk about, and more. I know you have not been getting my letters because I know you would write back if you did. And I hope you write back this time and we get to be good friends. I am sure our relationship would be a real home run.

And just for good measure I posted Mac’s letter to chase on just in case he didn’t get it any of the previous times that Mac sent it.
