The Sunniest Moments From ‘It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia’: ‘Gun Fever Too, Still Hot’

By: 09.12.13  •  125 Comments


The It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia sequel to Season One’s “Gun Fever” moves on from the primal feelings a firearm unleashes in the individual and instead actually kinda-sorta takes on the gun debate. The entire episode is almost South Park-esque in fashion, exposing the flaws of all arguments and reminding everyone to not be as dumb and as easily emotionally manipulated as The Gang.

To hammer this home in the Sunniest of fashions we have Mac & Charlie: America’s Denim Heroes, incompetently wielding samurai swords and empty revolvers, and social crusaders Dennis and Dee finding themselves completely unsuited for gun purchasing, even if it is just to prove a point. There’s really no more effective or hilarious way to magnify the worst of all parties than to let The Gang embody them.

In other news, nice to see Dee has rebounded back to her normal, fire-threatening self. Also, Dave Foley and Uncle Jack sightings are always welcome. Pretty much perfect usage of each. Let’s take a look at the Sunniest Moments.

Everyone is getting hot. hot. Hot. HOT.




And Mac & Charlie know exactly how to turn said hotness into full-on action.

If you’re going to have a Gun vs. Swordn debate, you should probably have it in a middle school, with the weapons on you. Let’s just hope no one has a hair trigger. “I guess I do have a hair trigger.”

Uncle Jack gives us a lesson in constitutional law.

But seriously, will Uncle Jack’s hands look this small on screen? Also, really like the Jack-is-Pedobear usage throughout the entire episode. Just the right subtle amount. “What is and what is not art?”

Dennis and Dee SHOCKINGLY do not pass their background checks. This ratchets up Dee’s hotness.
