List of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia characters - Wikipedia
Almost every time Dennis and Charlie get together for some scheme, there's And we all know deep down everyone hates Mac. . They get along really well for one episode because Dee likes to be weird and well, Charlie does, too. .. When they're writing day man they have the best moment "What is. The following is a list of recurring characters from the FX television series It's Always Sunny in . Recently, she was involved in a sexual relationship with Frank and the two shared a food fetish. She likes having sex with bacon bits in her hair because it "makes her feel like a Cobb salad." She and Frank once had makeup sex. Season 12 has seen It's Always Sunny stretch itself. The running theory is that Dennis just hates Valentine's Day because, as Mac not reciprocated), Dee storms off to “unclog the lines” of her relationship with Charlie, I knew you'd never take the pills willingly, but Jerry, Jerry likes sweet doesn't he?.
In "The World Series Defense", Charlie claims that he has thrown himself too many times in front of vehicles for the purpose of extorting their seat tickets and he has not suffered much damage after being run over by the car. Relationships[ edit ] Charlie has little to no success in dating and harbors an unrequited love for The Waitress, a recurring secondary character in the show. He goes to great lengths to attempt to win her over, despite her frequent declarations that she will never be interested in him the actress who plays The Waitress, Mary Elizabeth Ellisis in fact married to Charlie Day, who portrays Charlie.
Charlie's attempts to woo The Waitress invariably end badly for her, as his actions have caused her to lose jobs and sleep with Frank and Dennis.
Despite this, he seems to have had luck with other women, such as in the pilot episode "The Gang Gets Racist", where he begins dating a girl he meets at a community center, only to be dumped when trying to use her to get a date with The Waitress.
Another instance of Charlie having a stable girlfriend is in the season eight episode "Charlie and Dee Find Love", where he begins dating an attractive and wealthy young woman, played by Alexandra Daddariowho appreciates him for who he is. Unfortunately, Charlie ruins this relationship by revealing he only was using this kind young woman to get closer to The Waitress. In the season ten episode "The Gang Misses the Boat", Charlie and Sweet Dee share an intimate night after an intense slam poetry session together, but by the following day refuse to even comment on the previous night's incident.
In the season 12 episode The Gang Tends Bar, Dee makes Charlie a valentine and gets angry with him when he doesn't give one back. After threatening him with a bag of Anthrax actually just powdered sugar he writes a song for her, which she calls pathetic. Other instances throughout the series suggest that there may be unadmitted feelings between the two.
Charlie's genuine affection for The Waitress, twisted and sociopathic as it often is, has been cited by co-creator Glenn Howerton as an element that grounds The Gang's misadventures somewhat. He did however manage to win over the waitress in season 12 "Dennis' Double Life" where they both expressed their feelings together and ended up having sex, only for Charlie to realize she is not what he pictured her to be.
Morality[ edit ] Charlie consistently shows more empathy than any other member of The Gang and seems to have slightly higher ethical standards.
For example, he turned in the McPoyle Brothers when they attempted to profit from accusing a former teacher of molestation. In the episode "The Gang Finds a Dead Guy", he and Mac burn a box of authentic Nazi memorabilia once belonging to Dennis and Dee's grandfather, although they destroyed it only after trying to sell it to a museum for a profit, and Charlie keeps a Nazi officer's cap.
Despite his often firm sense of right-and-wrong, Charlie has few friends, depending largely on the selfish, unstable bonds formed within The Gang. It is revealed that Charlie never had a high social standing from childhood and, in high schoolonly gained any attention by engaging in disgusting acts like eating worms or eraserswhich earned him the nickname "dirt-grub".
He has repeatedly claimed to have hated high school. He and Dee seem to be true friends, partaking in platonic activities and frequently teaming up in The Gang's misadventures, often against Mac and Dennis. Charlie has even once or twice shown a small romantic interest in Dee but usually agrees with the rest of the gang that she is unattractive. However, their friendship is frequently marred when The Gang gets caught up in controversial issues, or whenever one of the two switches sides in their many battles against Mac and Dennis.
Charlie's deeper understanding of right and wrong likely stems from a lifetime of mistreatment by other people. Charlie, unlike the rest of The Gang, also appears to have had a loving, if emotionally fragile, mother and a stable childhood although it's revealed in "The Great Recession" that Charlie may have been molested by his uncle Jack.
Despite his morals, however, Charlie is not above selfishly manipulating, deceiving, and harming others for personal gain or vengeance. He enjoys seeing the other members of The Gang embarrassed or degraded, much like they often degrade him. For example, in "Dennis and Dee's Mom Is Dead", he is eager to have someone read to him from Dee's middle school diary, only so he can laugh at her difficulties as a disabled adolescent.
Family[ edit ] The possibility that Frank Reynolds is his real father has been heavily hinted at throughout the series.Exclusive- santoriniinfo.info's WIFE Drea Kelly S*C*A*M*S Alleged Money from his Ex- Child VlCTlM Jeronda Pace
Charlie finds out that Frank had a one-night stand with his mother, Bonnie, thirty years earlier, roughly at the same time as Charlie's conception. Charlie tries to persuade Frank to take a paternity testbut Frank adamantly refuses. The promiscuity of Charlie's mother is suggested more visibly in the episode "A Very Sunny Christmas", where Charlie reminisces about numerous men dressed in Santa suits visiting his mother's bedroom on Christmas morning each year.
Though not explicitly stated, Charlie has teenage twin sisters who only appear in the intervention scene of "Charlie Got Molested". Later in the episode, Charlie mentions one of his sisters while in the car with the McPoyle brothers, however, no further references are made to them in any following episodes.
Relationship with Frank[ edit ] Despite their unknown genetic bond, Frank and Charlie are very close, sharing an apartment and even the same bed. They partner in many schemes and were even briefly domestic partners in Season Six. Frank's attachment to Charlie is shown to reach bizarre lengths in the episode "Mac and Charlie Die", where Frank seems to be the most affected by Charlie's death and carries around a mannequin that resembles Charlie.
Frank is later witnessed "banging" the mannequin. However, Frank has readily betrayed Charlie on several occasions, manipulating him to gain access to women, including Charlie's beloved Waitress, and using Charlie's name and identity while engaged in illegal financial situations. When Charlie knew the hidden location of Frank's will from which Charlie was to be the main beneficiaryFrank tried to have Charlie killed.
Despite these many offenses against him, Charlie has remained largely devoted to Frank. In another episode, when Frank abandons Charlie and moves in with Bonnie, Charlie cooks an inedible dinner for The Gang and their parents and causes a string of violent arguments and hurt feelings just to get Frank to leave Bonnie and return to the apartment with him.
Charlie and Frank's bizarre relationship is often mocked by the rest of The Gang, particularly the pair's shared embrace of filthy living conditions.
Their apartment appears to be a single room in which they sleep on an old couch bed, cook meals on the radiator or a hot plate and urinate in coffee cans. The alley outside the apartment is crowded with dozens of meowing stray cats after dark, likely the result of Frank and Charlie's nightly consumption of canned cat food followed by a can of beer and a huff of glue fumes to get to sleep.
They claim this ritual allows them to sleep through the noise of so many stray cats, while everyone else blames the noise on the piles of empty cat-food cans and an open window.
The apartment is littered with garbage, dirty dishes and a layer of filth. In one episode, Frank is seen using a steak knife to cut his toenails. He first appeared in the season 1 finale "Charlie Got Molested" wherein Charlie's family gives him an intervention to get him to admit he had been molested by his elementary school teacher this belief was fostered by the scam the McPoyles were running to extort money from the school system.
Uncle Jack appears again in the season 5 episode "The Great Recession. Jack insists they share the room and spend time wrestling there. In the season 6 episode "Dennis Gets Divorced," Charlie and Frank call in Jack, who is revealed to be a lawyer, to handle their divorce.
Later, Dennis and Mac use him to try to get their apartment back from Dennis' ex-wife, only to find that she hired The Lawyer. Jack has a bizarre fixation on the size of his hands, constantly worrying that they may appear to be too small. It is heavily implied that Uncle Jack is a pedophile and wants to have sex with his nephew. Charlie has mentioned how, as a child, he would stay awake at night because Uncle Jack would want to sleep in his bed.
Coincidentally, Charlie's lyrics to "Nightman" seem to revolve around a man sneaking into his room at night and raping him. He returns in Season 5, eager to personally stop Frank—he represents a family that Frank is trying to force out of their house.
After Charlie makes an attempt to prove that he's more legally apt than the actual lawyer, he challenges him to a duel; the lawyer immediately accepts, claiming to have a loaded gun in his office desk.

He later tricks them into signing a document that grants him all the profits from the products as well as imposing a restraining order on them.
In Season 11 he represents one of the McPoyles in a lawsuit against Bill Ponderosa over a bird attack that cost his client an eye, but in addition to being hit with nonsensical anti-Semitic baiting from Frank and Dee even though he's not Jewishhe ends up injuring one of his eyes in another bird attack that leads to Bill's acquittal.
Dennis convinces Dee to dump Kevin because he's retarded only for her to later discover he isn't. He later returns as one of Dee's baby's potential fathers in "Dee Gives Birth".

He admits he was convinced to eat horse feces for a chance to kiss Dee, which she refused since, as she says, "his breath smelled like shit".
Mac and Dennis have been teabagging Cricket at every opportunity since high school. Dennis claims that he has a shoebox full of pictures of him and Mac doing this, and pictures are surfacing on the Internet. One recurring theme in the series is Cricket's downward spiral; due to his involvement with the Gang he leaves the priesthood, supports himself by grifting or panhandlingbecomes addicted to crack cocainehas his legs broken by members of the Philadelphia Mafiahas his throat sliced by Frank in a wrestling match, is hunted by Mac and Dennis for sport, and suffers a gunshot wound in his hand when he is trespassing at Paddy's and Frank accidentally shoots him.
