The Sunniest Moments From Last Night’s ‘It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia’: The Gang Broke Dee

“The Gang Broke Dee” — the It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia Season 9 premiere and inaugural FXX episode — felt apropos for a variety of reasons. It seemingly picked up right where Season 8 left off, with The Gang sh*tting on Dee one too many times. It’s rare for Sunny to not hit the reset button going into a new episode, but for a new season on a new network something about it just felt right.

Then there’s the delayed payoff. “The Gang Broke Dee” feels like a departure and a shot at high concept right until those last seconds when you realize things are still exactly how they should be. I don’t know if it was an intended FXX metaphor but it sure as hell jumps out as one.

Last night was a little light on random and hilarious Gang dialogue for my tastes but the long con and Dennis portion made it entirely worth it. And there’s plenty of that over the next two episodes to compensate (seriously, “The Gang Tries Desperately to Win an Award” is already one of my all-time favorites). Let’s get right to the Sunniest moments…

There’s really no better way than trash cake to open an episode entitled “The Gang Broke Dee.”
