Two and a Half Men Episode Recap: "Tinkle Like a Princess" Season 7, Episode 16

On this week's Two and a Half Men, Charlie deals with his breakup from Chelsea in the typical fashion — by peeing in a fichus and marrying a bimbo.

At first, Charlie and Chelsea seem to be handling their parting in a mature and restrained manner. No tears or groveling. But then Charlie sinks into a great depression, staying in his bedroom for days (and avoiding the bathroom because it reminds him of Chelsea and how she would tinkle like a princess in there — hence, the fichus), breaking down when talking to Judith about the split, and finally heading to church. It's there that Charlie asks God to help him through in any way He can. Enter Betsy.

Betsy appears to be everything Chelsea isn't. She's not controlling or serious. She doesn't seem to have a care in the world or a brain in her head for that matter. And she's also Charlie's new wife, having married her on a 3-day drunken binge in Vegas. Charlie swears that they are soul mates and that fate brought them together. Truth be told, it was more likely alcohol and horniness. Alan tries to talk some sense into Charlie, but it only clicks with him when he hears Betsy explain to Jake the similarities between women and antique cars (lots of maintenance and once a month you have to put down an oil pan). Perhaps the visual is just too much for poor Charlie.

Instead of hanging around for more analogies, Charlie heads to find Chelsea at her dad's house, where he walks in on the dad and his boyfriend in the middle of a little spat over decorating. Although obviously uncomfortable, he waits it out until Chelsea comes home. When she arrives, Charlie tells her how much he misses her and basically begs her to take him back, vowing that he can change. For her part, Chelsea realizes that she shouldn't have tried to change him and wants to take some time to figure out what she wants. They say an awkward goodbye, with Charlie reassuring Chelsea that if she ever did something crazy, like get married on a whim, that he would forgive her. Way to cover your bases, dillweed!

When Charlie gets home, there's a surprise waiting for him — Betsy's husband. It turns out that Betsy makes a habit of taking off her wedding ring and going on little adventures. The only reason her husband puts up with it is because, well, she's hot. Of course, that also means that Betsy and Charlie were never really married. Wonder if that promise to forgive Chelsea if she does something crazy is still on?

I think this episode was a little bit of a tease. At one point, Alan suggests Charlie visit his shrink and I was certain that the lovely doctor would make an appearance. No such luck. I wonder, for those who are Team Chelsea, if you thought there was a chance for reconciliation. I wonder if the rest of the season will be him trying to win Chelsea back. I think as long as she and Charlie find a middle ground there could be forgiveness coming. And I wonder if Chelsea's dad and his boyfriend will ever decide on the decorating. What are you thinking about? Weigh in!!

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.
