Two and a Half Men Episode Recap: "Aye, Aye, Captain Douche" Season 7, Episode 15

On this week's Two and a Half Men, the question everybody has wondered is answered: Chelsea does have her breaking point after all.

In the first part of the episode, it looked like Chelsea may have run off with Alan's attorney, Brad. After they seemed to click at their initial meeting, Brad had invited Chelsea and Charlie to a function at his house. It involved kids and horses, so of course Charlie passed. After learning that Chelsea went alone, Alan became quite the instigator, reminding Charlie that he will never be as good as this other man. Charlie eventually became paranoid and sets out to find Chelsea, only to come home wet and without her.

Cut to this week and Charlie is still waiting for Chelsea to come home. And Alan is still trying to convince him that she's likely falling for Brad. Instead of considering how his behavior could lead her into the arms of another, Charlie becomes angry and starts complaining about how deceitful she is. He's still bitching about her when she walks through the door, tired but apparently not ready to ditch him. Charlie quickly switches gears and tells her how happy he is that she had a good time. Alan is impressed that he's taken the high road, whereas Charlie sees it as a "complete and utter betrayal of my testicles."

Not one to let things go, Charlie ends up giving Chelsea a bit of a hard time about her new friend and their time together. He obviously presses one too many buttons because he winds up waking up on the couch — looking like hell and getting a slew of questions from Jake about why he's on the couch. When Charlie yells at him to turn down the TV, Jake replies with a very teenage-like reply "Aye, aye, Captain Douche."  Berta doesn't help matters when she comes in singing and drilling him as well. Though not one to pry, she wonders what Charlie's done. He tells her that a horse has come between him and his fiancée. Berta tells him that he can't compete with a horse. "I've seen your tallywagger. You're blessed, but you're no Sea Biscuit." Best line of the night!

Of course he gets more advice from Alan, who convinces Charlie that if Chelsea wants a better man, then he has to be a better man. In an effort to try, he asks Chelsea if they could spend the day together. She invites him to go with her to give blood and he's more than willing to go along, until he finds out that Brad is the one sponsoring it. Accusations fly and Charlie's vow to change some of his ways goes out the door, which is exactly where Chelsea heads.

Then we see a side of Charlie that's usually only spoken of and not shown. He becomes a blubbering drunk idiot, crying on Alan's shoulder and sobbing about how he's lost his angel. It must have been one strong bottle of liquor he was drinking because he winds up passing out and snuggling next to Alan. Yup, for the second time this season, the brothers end up in bed together. While it was nice to see Charlie's vulnerable side, it was a little disturbing to learn that Charlie doesn't sleep with pajama bottoms.

The next morning, Charlie wakes up confused and hung-over, but accepts a request from Chelsea asking that they meet to talk. Over coffee she admits that she has developed feelings for Brad but she hasn't acted on them and wants to make things work with Charlie. Charlie gets excited thinking that he could work to be the man Chelsea needs. He gets so excited, in fact, that he ends up vomiting in a baby carriage. There are not enough words in the English language to begin to apologize to the baby's mother for what he did. And not enough for Chelsea either, as she quietly slips out.

As much as I hate to admit it, I did feel a little sorry for Charlie in the end. He looked like he was just in shock that things had gotten so bad. It was even touching to see Evelyn try to be gentle with him, in her own misguided way. As far as the episode goes, I was a little disappointed that they had Charlie go so far as to get sick on a baby. While we've heard of his many drunken and hung-over episodes, this was the first time it was shown in all of its un-glory. I felt the same way in the episode where Rose goes a little nuts over Alan — I would rather just imagine what her behavior must have been like rather than see it. How did you feel about this interesting turn of events? Team Chelsea and Team Bachelor Charlie—discuss!!

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.
