At Alan's insistence and to avoid having to escort the daughter of one of ma's clients (she invited that), Charlie attends with Alan, ma and Jake the jingle awards ceremony, where he's nominated and just knows Archie Baldwin will win for the seventh year in a row, because that pompous ass always gets the sexy products, a good tune for medication like Charlie's clients is never good enough to get a fair chance. He's right, and was forced by Rose -who will otherwise stalk him again- to make her adoring teenage boyfriend Gordon give her some private space again; when that works, she changes her mind...

Did You Know?


At the awards banquet, where Archie Baldwin (Jon Lovitz) sings his song for the Orphans, he appears under a large decoration of a music staff (treble clef), stretching the entire width of the stage, on which is written the series "Men, manly men" theme melody. It is in the key of C major (the same key heard in the show's title and credit sequences), and is relatively accurate, except that the lilting dotted-eighth/sixteenth figures (used when the words "manly men" are heard in the credits and again a few notes later) are shown in the decoration as even eighth notes; and the symbol marking the fourth note as a Bb (B-flat) is on the space above the B line, where a C note would be.
