It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Dennis and Dee's Mom is Dead

Dennis and Dee's mother has died. And now for the bad news: she left all of the money to Bruce, Dennis and Dee's philanthropist father. She also left ownership of her house to Dennis. He, along with Mac and Charlie, decide to use it as a "party mansion." However, the three soon realize that they have no other friends and search for some new guys to hang out with. Dee and Frank received nothing from the will, so they come up with a plan to trick Bruce into giving them his inherited money.

Episode Quotes
Frank: I got news! Your mother is dead. Ha!
Dennis: Yeah, right. Nice try. Very funny, Frank.
Frank: I'm serious this time. She had a botched neck lift. She's as dead as disco. (cackles) Who wants champagne?

Attorney: (reading the will) "Deandra..."
Dee: Yes.
Attorney: "You get nothing. You were a disappointment and a mistake."
Dee: A mistake? We're twins. We were born at the same time. What are you talking about? You're not making any sense.
Frank: Tell that bitch it doesn't make sense!
Attorney: OK. I'm reading the words that someone else wrote, 'K? I don't know your mom. Never met your mom. In fact, I'm certainly not speaking to your mom now because she's dead!
Dee: Yeah, we know she's dead. We're venting because we're frustrated!

Charlie: (excitedly) Guys, look what I just found in Dee's old room! It's her middle school diary, dude. Ooh, yeah! (laughs)
Mac: Who gives a shit?
Charlie: It's her—this is her diary, man. It's got all her secrets and shit in here. Dude, it says "keep out," there's a little lock that we c—-well, we'll—we'll get it open later.
Dennis: We are not reading Dee's middle school diary to you, bro!

Mac: (reading their flyer) "What up? We're three cool guys looking for other cool guys who wanna hang out in our party mansion. Nothing sexual. Dudes in good shape encouraged. If you're fat, you should be able to find humor in the little things." Again, "nothing sexual," underlined.

Charlie: (about Ernesto) You should have seen how passionate he got when I showed him the dick flyer.
Dennis: You knew?
Mac: You knew that it was a dick?
Charlie: Well, yeah, I thought we changed it. I thought you guys were changing it.
Dennis: It was always—it was always meant to be a bicep.
Mac: It was a bicep, bro.
Charlie: Well, then why didn't you cut it like w—'cause it looks totally like a dick. I thought, well, all right, let's go with the dick thing. It's more masculine anyway.
Mac: Good point.
Charlie: I mean, shit, if you want it to be a bicep it needs more veins.

Mac: (to Phil and Jonathan) That's right, you guys are gonna be telling stories for the rest of your lives about how crazy we are.
Dennis: Oh, yeah, you're gonna tell everybody how we're like those guys from Jackass, how we like to smash stuff and shove shit up our asses.
Mac: That's right! You are gonna get so much shit shoved up your ass tonight, four eyes!
Dennis: You're gonna be talking about this night for the rest of your lives!

Ernesto: Have you ever been scorned, Charlie?
Charlie: Uh, like all day, every day, dude.

Bruce: (to Frank, Dennis, and Dee) You're the most horrible people alive.

(after Phil and Jonathan escape and run away)
Mac: Well, at least we still have Ernesto.
Charlie: Yeah—whoops. No, no, he robbed your house.



Cultural References
Dee: I'm gonna dig up her body in the middle of the night and snatch back that jewelry.
Frank: That's insane!
Dee: Frank, that woman is buried down there like Mr. T!

Mr. T is an actor who played Sgt. "B. A." Baracus in the TV show The A-Team. He was well-known for his excessive jewelry, particularly the many gold chains he wore around his neck.

Dennis: Oh, yeah, you're gonna tell everybody how we're like those guys from Jackass, how we like to smash stuff and shove shit up our asses.

Jackass was an MTV series that showcased a group of guys performing stupid and often dangerous activities for fun.



Episode References
Frank: I got news! Your mother is dead. Ha!
Dennis: Yeah, right. Nice try. Very funny, Frank.
Frank: I'm serious this time.

Frank had lied about their mother being dead in the episode "Charlie Gets Crippled." He simply said it so that the news of the divorce wouldn't seem so awful in comparison.
