20. "Mac and Charlie Die, Parts 1 & 2"
This is technically two episodes, but we're keeping them together because the entire saga of Mac and Charlie faking their deaths is worth highlighting in one go. Dee's car gets ruined, the guys prove their incompetence time and time again, and Charlie's slippery teeth are the stuff of nightmares.
19. "The Gang Gets Trapped"
Similar to the Boggs episode, one has to wonder how in God's name the gang isn't discovered during their Indiana Jones-esque caper in a Southern family's home. Between the yelling and Frank's incessant whip-cracking, you'll have to suspend your disbelief quite a bit here. Not that it's hard to do.
18. "Charlie Kelly: King of the Rats"
Charlie's job is full of thankless grotesqueries, not the least of which is bashing entire colonies of rats in the basement, so it's tempting to feel bad for him. That is, until he sneaks a tray of spaghetti into a movie theater and refuses to stop talking/standing up/flinging meatballs.
17. "The Gang Tries Desperately to Win an Award"
We get two blockbuster musical works by Charlie this episode: He performs the Paddy's Pub theme once in its original, Randy Newman-esque form, and then once again as a sort of nightmarish opera towards the end. Not bad for an episode that's a thinly veiled meta-jab at Sunny's own lack of award wins.
