Two and a Half Men Episode Recap: "Pinocchio's Mouth" Season 6, Episode 8

Charlie's new girlfriend wanted him to spend the night at her place. Charlie realized that he was very set in his ways, and he struggled with spending the night in a strange house. Alan attempted to punish Jake for getting kicked off the bus for mooning the girls track team.

Charlie's new girlfriend told Charlie that there should be some give and take in their relationship. She was spending the night at Charlie's house in Malibu almost every night and Charlie hadn't stayed at her place once. She told him that he only wanted to see her at his place and at his convenience. Charlie really didn't want to spend the night at her place at all, but he agreed to spend the night at her house to make her happy.

Jake wanted to spend some quality time with Alan, so Alan knew something was up. He asked him what he did. He wouldn't tell Alan, so Alan was going to call Judith, so Jake confessed that he got kicked off the bus for mooning the girls track team. Alan decided to punish Jake for two weeks by denying him access to any form of entertainment, such as the TV and the internet. In response to this, Jake said, "Couldn't you just smack me with a belt and get it over with?"

Meanwhile, Charlie was looking online to see where his girlfriend lived. He found out she lived in Culver City near the airport which was 45 minutes away from where he lives. Charlie wasn't happy about that at all. Alan said, "Aw, you poor guy, you have to drive 45 minutes to get laid." Alan was somewhat confused as to why Charlie didn't want to spend the night at his girlfriend's house. He used to prefer spending the night at a woman's house so he could leave when he wanted to. Charlie said it was better to do that with a one night stand, but this girl he actually cared about. He had been seeing her for about a month. Alan thought it was odd that he had been seeing her for a month, but this was the first time that Charlie was going to spend the night at her place and had never been to her house before.

At Charlie's girlfriend's house, it was obvious that Charlie was uncomfortable being there. He was very fidgety and couldn't relax. He peeked out the window to make sure no one touched his car, and he punched his pillow. He then complained because there was no TV in the bedroom. Charlie's girlfriend said she had one TV and she asked him how many she needed. Charlie responded, "You've got 3 rooms and a bath — so 4." Charlie then complained because his girlfriend was sleeping on the right side of the bed when you are facing the bed, which is Charlie's side of the bed at his house. Charlie wanted to switch sides but his girlfriend wouldn't allow it because it was her house and that's her side of the bed at her house. "Boy, you're being pretty inflexible!" Charlie told her. He tried to make up excuses as to why they should switch sides of the bed, but they didn't work on his girlfriend. One excuse he used was that if an armed intruder came in, he could protect her because he would get the bullet, not her. His girlfriend then asked him what if an armed intruder came in through the window instead. Charlie got freaked out by this and didn't even want to think about that since he was on the side of the bed near the window.

Later that night, Charlie still couldn't sleep. He heard cars driving by outside, and his girlfriend moaned in his face. He then got up, most likely because he was going to try to leave, but he stepped on his girlfriend's cat which hissed and woke up his girlfriend. "It's like trying to sleep in the friggin' jungle!" Charlie yelled. Charlie's girlfriend then said, "You don't have to sneak out, if you want to leave, then leave!" She complained to Charlie that she drove to Malibu every night for a month, and that he couldn't even make it one night at her house. Charlie was about to leave, but asked, "So, tomorrow at my place?" This made his girlfriend mad, so she threw something at Charlie's head. Charlie said to her, "You make love like a woman but you throw like a man!"

Back at the house, Alan caught Jake watching TV. Jake ran outside to hide from Alan, but he ended up getting locked outside so he had to sleep on the balcony. The next morning Alan asked Jake why he was sleeping outside, even though he knew why, and Jake said he was camping. A seagull was on Jake when he woke up, and it pooped on him which I thought was pretty funny. Jake wasn't happy.

Alan went back inside and Charlie told Alan that he was so set in his ways that he couldn't spend one night in a strange house. "I was really uncomfortable over there" Charlie confessed. Charlie then starting asking Alan where he would have done his morning business after he got his morning coffee. He said his girlfriend's toilet seat was wooden like Pinocchio's mouth. Alan then asked, "Ever wonder about people who poop in gas stations? What is wrong with them?!" Charlie then told Alan that he pooped in the trunk of Alan's car before. Alan said he had convinced himself that a coyote did that. The conversations that these brothers have sometimes are so gross but I think they're funny.

The next scene showed Jake playing Charlie's piano with his tongue. "Your kid is licking my piano!" Charlie yelled. Charlie asked Alan what Jake was grounded for and for how long. Charlie told Alan that Alan was never grounded for two weeks and he mooned the girls' choir. Alan told Charlie that he had pantsed him. "Oh right, either way, you were in the yearbook!" said Charlie.

Charlie had decided to try spending the night at his girlfriend's house again. But this time, he was going to make himself more comfortable, so he had Berta pack him an overnight bag, which in this case, looked like it was a huge piece of luggage. Berta was going down the list of everything Charlie had packed, and the list was long and ridiculous. It included such items like laxatives and raspberry jam. Berta said, "He ain't gonna make it." Alan said, "Not a chance."

At Charlie's girlfriend's house, Charlie put his own sheets on his girlfriend's bed and decided to sleep with his head at the bottom of the bed and his feet up near his girlfriend's face so he would be facing the right direction. His girlfriend wasn't too happy, but Charlie said that he had brought peppermint lotion for his feet. Like that was supposed to make her happy? That's definitely something Charlie would do.

Later that night, Charlie's girlfriend woke up and saw Charlie watching a portable television in bed. His girlfriend was annoyed and told him to go home, and that she had made a mistake by asking him to stay over at her house. On his way out, Charlie stepped on the cat again. "You really should put a bell on that thing!" Charlie yelled.

Back at the house, Alan found Jake sitting in the bathtub with the water running and he was watching TV. "Is TV really that important to you?" Jake asked him if he really needed to ask. Alan noticed that Charlie had a heated toilet seat. "If only I could poop at night...maybe I'll just pee girly style!" Alan said to himself. I thought this part was so funny.

Later, Charlie came home and was so excited to see his own bed. He went into the bathroom but saw that the TV was on and someone was in his bathtub laying below the bubbles in the bubble bath. Charlie pushed the bubbles away and saw that it was Alan.

Maybe at some point Charlie will be ready to try spending the night at a girlfriend's house, but it doesn't look like that will be anytime soon. I'm sure Alan will be punishing Jake more in future episodes. I guess we'll have to wait and see what kind of trouble he will get himself into.

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.
