Did I mention that Frank, a wealthy businessman, has been sharing a futon with Charlie for several years? Well, he has. And when one of the two poops on that futon, it sets off a firestorm of accusation and investigation involving the whole gang. That is, until Frank cheerfully announces that he pooped the bed. Twice. And twice on the floor of the bar. He defends his actions, explaining that “poop is funny.” And he’s right, damn it.
This episode opens with a shot of Frank taking a giant bong hit, reminding us how far he’s come. It continues with the image of Frank’s bare ass in a hospital gown, and the revelation that he cancelled his children’s health insurance when they were nine. After ingesting a multitude of anti-anxiety pills, Frank wanders the streets and is committed to a mental institution. He stages a breakout (in an homage to One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, which featured a young DeVito) and marches off to freedom… and more weed.
Dennis and Dee attempt to teach Frank a lesson as revenge for years of lousy Christmas presents. Of course, nobody really learns or evolves, but we do get the incredible sight of Frank tearing his way out of the inside of a couch at an office Christmas party. He is of course, completely naked. The visual will haunt you, but you will be unable to look away.
