Fans of FXX’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia are by now well acquainted with janitor extraordinaire, Charlie Kelly’s stellar skills in the fields of rat bashing and toilet cleaning, but the series’ most recent episode, “Charlie Work,” reveals just how integral everyone’s favorite paint-huffing cheese enthusiast is to the everyday operation of Paddy’s Pub. With a surprise health inspection imminent, Charlie kicks into high gear, showcasing some surprisingly deft managerial skills, though in typically daft fashion.
Here, we see the oft-mocked and typically dopey Charlie capably tackle a leadership role, delegating responsibility to his for once cooperative coworkers (except for Dee, that bitch) and orchestrating a madcap plot involving chickens, a steak delivery, and, most hilariously, a paint-coated, recorder tooting Frank acting as a stand-in for the bar’s faulty carbon monoxide detectors. Though Charlie work usually entails the most menial and soul-killing tasks, this clip reveals who the real maestro of Paddy’s Pub truly is.
It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia airs Wednesdays on FXX.
Kimberlee Rossi-Fuchs is a Senior Writer for Pop-Break, regularly covering Game of Thrones, Louie, Futurama, and Boardwalk Empire, as well as other delectable nuggets of TV, film, and music throughout the year. Since graduating with Highest Honors from Rutgers University with a degree in English, Kimberlee currently finds herself in a financially comfortable, yet stifling corporate environment where her witty and insightful literary and pop culture references are largely met with confused silence and requests to, “Get away from me, weirdo.” Still, she’s often thought of as a modern-day Oscar Wilde (by herself) and one day hopes her wit, charm, and intellect (again, self-perceived) will make her a very wealthy, very drunk woman. She’s also the mother of a darling little boy, Charlie Miles (aka Young Chizzy) who she hopes will grow up to not be too embarrassed of all of the baby pics she relentlessly shares of him on various social media sites.
