Trivia

Dennis' remark, "We don't give a shit about your dream", is a possible call-back to the first episode, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia: The Gang Gets Racist (2005), in which Dennis stops Dee from telling him her dream by interrupting, "I hate listening to people's dreams. It's like flipping through a stack of photographs. If I'm not in any of them and nobody's having sex, I just . . . don't care." See more »

By far and without the shadow of a doubt the worst episode of Sunny ever
7 January 2017 | by k-03779See all my reviews

I don't know of a single episode that comes close. It's that bad. It might as well not have been an episode.

There were zero laughs. It's a musical episode with terrible songs - this is coming from me who loves the songs of this show: the entire Charlie musical, Paddy's Pub, (I Just Wanna Tell You All) Go F*** Yourselves, etc. Those were gold. Top quality compositions, funny lyrics, hilarious context.

This was quite bad and I will never watch this episode again.

Random references to Trump, Nash Bridges and Quantum Leap did not make it any funnier.

I never thought I'd see a Sunny episode I didn't like. Sad to see this day come.
