Sweet dee is dating a retarded
This week's random escapade for the gang came from Mac being inspired by the success of Dee's boyfriend, "Lil' Kevin", to start a band to make money.Dennis was shut out due to his love of glam rock, while Mac, Charlie and Frank put together their truly awful trio.
When he leaves for the recording studio, Dennis informs Dee that her boyfriend—real name Kevin Gallagher—is retarded. If it's not too much to claim -- and heck, I claimed it about Is it looking good with a guitar? Is it breaking shit in a hotel room that -- and this is the crucial point -- somebody else is paying for? Only Frank on drums is hopeless, but that's true of 70% of drummers who actually have gigs, so you can't really fault him.Frank, however, is quick to point out that nobody needs musical ability to make it as rock stars in the current world.Mac immediately recruits Frank into the band and Dennis leaves the Gang completely appalled.That said, Dennis's Ziggy Stardust-rouged recantation of the aspersions he cast on Kevin's mental ability does pull the ending back into territory.
A commenter pointed out last week that the cut between the opening scene and the title card is often the funniest moment of any episode.
Surprisingly enough, three out of the four potential rockers seem to have some musical ability: Dennis has the De Young vibrato, Charlie "gets" keyboards and fancies himself a Dylanesque poet, and Mac at least knows how to form a power chord.
Is it better encapsulated in the band name Electric Dream Machine or Chemical Toilet? His fear of rejection is better when it's purely theoretical.

"Sweet Dee's Dating a Retarded Person" is the ninth episode of the third season of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
The scene in which Mac, Charlie and Frank got a hotel room and trashed it to live the rock star lifestyle was pretty meh, and wasn't helped by the not particularly funny reveal that Mac had used Frank's credit card to get the room.
