Two and a Half Men Episode Recap: "The Flavin' and the Mavin" Season 6, Episode 4

Charlie's relationships with women have rarely been approved by those closest to him. In this week's episode, Alan didn't approve of Charlie's relationship with his receptionist from the start, and he had a really bad feeling about the outcome. Alan tried to prevent Charlie from seeing his receptionist, but of course Charlie didn't listen.

Alan's car was having engine problems, so Alan woke Charlie up early so he would take him to work. They were sitting in traffic, and Charlie still looked like he was half asleep. "It's 7 o'clock, where are all these damn people going?" Charlie asked Alan.

Charlie then found out from Alan that Alan would also need a ride home from work. At first Charlie refused. "Take the bus" he said. Alan replied, "Charlie, it's only for a couple of days." Charlie then said, "That's what mom said when she brought you home from the hospital."

After they got to Alan's office, Charlie had to use the bathroom, but Alan didn't want him to use it. Charlie eventually went into Alan's office anyway, and he saw Alan's assistant Melissa, played by Kelly Stables. Charlie immediately liked Melissa. Alan knew Charlie wanted her, so he tried to distract him by reminding him that he had to use the bathroom. "I thought you had to tinkle" Alan said to Charlie. Charlie must not have had to use the bathroom that badly, because he was too focused on Melissa. "He's been keeping you a secret for six months!" Charlie told Melissa after he found out how long Melissa had been Alan's receptionist. Alan already didn't like the way things were headed, so he told Charlie "She's the best receptionist I've ever had." Charlie of course replied, "I was hoping to say the same thing!"

Charlie had to make sure Alan wasn't seeing Melissa. "So, you're not hitting that?" Charlie asked Alan. "No, I'm not hitting that!" Alan replied. Alan decided that he really didn't want Charlie to come back to his office, so he told him that if he had to, he would take a charter bus home. Melissa didn't want Alan to take a bus home, so she offered to drive him home. Charlie loved that offer, because he was hopeful that he would get to see Melissa after she would drop Alan off at home. "There will be a cold margarita waiting for you when you bring Alan home" Charlie said to Melissa.

At the house, Berta saw Charlie and Melissa drinking margaritas on the balcony. "Who's the smurf?" she asked Alan. Alan told her that she was his receptionist. "You're letting Charlie hit that?" Berta asked. Alan then began to say that he knew that Charlie seeing Melissa would blow up in his face and bite him in the ass. "That's me: no face, no ass" Alan bluntly stated to Berta. I thought that was one of the funniest lines of this episode.

Charlie later came into the house from the balcony. Out of frustration, Alan told Charlie, "Oh just leave her alone, won't you?!" Charlie then told Alan that he wanted to start building a relationship with Melissa. Alan told Charlie that he was impressed. "That I grew up?" asked Charlie. No… Alan told Charlie that he was impressed that Charlie would lie to his face.

The next morning, Alan went into the kitchen to have breakfast, but was shocked because Melissa was there. "Morning Dr. Harper, I like your jammies!" Melissa said to Alan. She told Alan that Charlie was so sweet and special. "Yeah he's a treasure!" Alan replied, while making gagging motions when Melissa had her back turned. Charlie wanted Melissa to stay the whole weekend, so she told Alan that they could carpool to work in the morning. Charlie whispered to her, "I thought you were gonna call in sick?" After Melissa left the room to jump in the shower, Charlie confessed to Alan that he was falling for Melissa. "In one night, that pixie has melted this cold, lonely heart."

On the way to work, Melissa couldn't stop raving about Charlie to Alan. "I am just crazy about your brother!" She wondered why Charlie was still single. Alan stated that "being a fall down drunk is a speed bump for some ladies." I also thought that was pretty funny.

Judith was at the house to drop off Jake when she met Melissa. "Charlie's taking a nap; he said I drain him" Melissa told Judith. Judith wanted to know why Alan was allowing his brother to romance his receptionist. Alan told Judith that Charlie "twisted my nipples and peed in my office!"

Later, Jake and Alan were having dinner and they actually appeared to have a serious conversation for once. "Is them being together weird for you?" Jake asked his father. Alan played it off like it didn’t really bother him, but Jake told him that he was a better man then he was. "Remember when he was hitting my fifth grade teacher?" Jake asked Alan. Alan remembered. "Shouldn't there be boundaries?" Jake asked. Alan agreed. Jake asked Alan if he was jealous at all, and he wasn't. Jake confessed that he was jealous when Charlie was with his fifth grade teacher because she had a hot body.

The next scene showed Melissa screaming at Charlie. "You're a selfish son of a bitch!" Melissa yelled and then stormed off. Charlie told Alan that he told Melissa that he wanted to slow things down and see other people. "I made a mistake; I rushed to love her" Charlie told Alan. "Sure you don't want to come back to my office and hump my fax machine?" Alan asked Charlie. We then heard Melissa honking the horn impatiently as she was waiting for Alan so they could go to work. Charlie said that he wanted to make up for any damage he caused by seeing Alan's receptionist, so he told Alan to take a cab home from work and he would pay for it.

The very last scene showed Melissa and Alan in the car together going to work. It was raining, and Melissa was obviously very upset with Charlie. "That miserable son of a bitch!" she yelled. Alan looked very nervous. "Watch out for the truck!" he yelled. Melissa told Alan she wanted a raise, benefits, and two weeks paid vacation. He was hesitant at first, but she nearly killed them with her driving so he gave in.

I liked this episode. I wish Jake was in it longer, but I enjoyed his scenes. I'm sure they will find other people in the future for Charlie to date that will really piss off Alan!

Premise: A hit sitcom built on often-raunchy material, starring Charlie Sheen and, later, Ashton Kutcher begins with the premise of a Malibu bachelor (Sheen) whose life is disrupted when his brother and 10-year-old nephew move in with him. In the ninth season, Kutcher replaces Sheen, playing a billionaire with a broken heart. Briskly written and performed, the sitcom had fun spoofing Charlie Sheen's bad-boy reputation (which ultimately led to his exit from the series) and Jon Cryer's nervous energy.
