Production[edit]

Many reports of Sheen partying in Vegas, drinking heavily, and associating with pornstars had been over the Internet from the beginning of January 2011 and CBS had expressed its concern. Early in the morning of January 27, Sheen was rushed to hospital suffering from severe abdominal pains after holding a party at his house in which he allegedly smoked crack cocaine. After being released from the hospital, Sheen checked himself in to rehab. The show was previously put on hiatus,[3] with production scheduled to resume on February 28.[4] On February 24, 2011, it was announced that the show would shut down production for the rest of the season[5] due to Sheen making offensive comments about the creator and lead writer of Two and a Half Men, Chuck Lorre, on the February 24 edition of a radio broadcast hosted by Alex Jones.[6] On March 7, 2011, Sheen was fired from the show, which led to the cancellation of the remaining eight episodes.[7] After much speculation if Sheen would return to the series after all in April 2011, Lorre announced that he had new plans to reboot Two and a Half Men with Jon Cryer in a lead role alongside a new character. Ashton Kutcher was later hired to portray the new character, Walden Schmidt.

After going to Rose’s house and being turned away, the roles are reversed and Charlie stalks Rose, even climbing over the balcony of her deck like she does.

Eventually, Charlie persuades Rose to have an affair with him, and the two end up sleeping together.

17615"Three Hookers and a Philly Cheesesteak"James WiddoesEddie Gorodetsky & Jim PattersonFebruary 7, 2011 (2011-02-07)15.15[23]

Alan discovers that a fellow chiropractor's business is doing extremely well. Seeing as how they started their businesses at the same time and under similar circumstances, Alan determines the reason his business is failing and the other is booming is because of advertising. Alan decides to buy advertising space for all different kinds of media, and asks Charlie for a loan of $5,000 with which to buy the ad space. Charlie hands it over with no questions asked, and Alan, seeing how easy it was, decides to ask his mother for money, too. Evelyn gives $10,000, and Alan realizes that he has come up with a brilliant plan. He offers to let Herb in on a great "business deal," and Herb gives Alan $15,000. Alan pays Charlie back his initial investment of $5,000 plus 20% interest, and Charlie decides to give Alan back all $6,000 plus more, hoping even more interest will be generated by leaving the money in Alan's "advertising fund" longer. Doing the same with Evelyn, Herb, Berta, and even Judith, Alan begins to feel guilty, until he has a conversation with his reflection in the mirror and decides he should take advantage of his good fortune; sort of a reward after years of being stepped on. Meanwhile, Charlie continues his affair with Rose. Gordon, Charlie's pizza delivery man, discovers that Rose's "husband" Manny is really a mannequin, and unsuccessfully tries to tell Charlie.

When Rose wants to invest in Alan's "business," she visits his office and finds out about his scheming and threatens to tell everyone. Alan panics at first, but then he realizes that he can tell Rose's "husband" about her cheating. While over at her house, he finds out that her "husband" is really a mannequin. Rose offers Alan the $50,000 he needs to pay everyone back to keep her secret from Charlie, but Alan decides that his loyalty to Charlie is more important; Charlie then insults Alan about moving out after he tells Charlie it's a bad idea to marry Rose, and Alan decides to take the money, pay everyone back, and keep Rose's secret to himself while she and Charlie take a weekend away to Paris. Charlie does "meet" Manny, but thinks it's just a dummy he uses for work. After Charlie grabs Rose's raincoat, the couple heads for the airport for their ill-fated trip to Paris.

Note: This is the last episode to feature Charlie Harper alive and as a male, as he is killed off in the first show of the ninth season. Despite this, he is eventually written back into the series in the Season 9 episode "Why We Gave Up Women" in which he appears as a ghost in a woman's body (Kathy Bates).

Title quotation from: Alan's evil side, with whom Alan is arguing in the mirror.
