Goofs

When Mac steals Frank's van, as he is turning the van around, he bashes the van multiple times into the driver's side of the car of the person that Frank thinks is Bruce Mathis. The camera cuts away showing Charlie and Dennis, but as it cuts back to Mac, the van is now behind the car, and the driver's side of the car shows no damage. See more »

This is why I love Sunny!
10 March 2009 | by rick_poelstraSee all my reviews

This episode is brilliant. All characters are doing what they do best. Hilarious and absurd situations follow each other in fast pace.

Dennis, Mac and Charlie solve the oil crisis while Frank and Dee go after Bruce.

Most brilliant parts (personal):

Frank torturing Dee (his own daughter) Charlie completely blowing the scene where he talks with a southern accent

And of course, Charlie jumping out of the car when he cut the brake line.

This episode is a real WILDCARD!!!
