Which Always Sunny Character Are You?

I attached a quiz courtesy of BuzzFeed where you can find out which character from It’s Always Sunny your personality resembles most. There’s a series of ten questions, each with a variety of choices, that lead the quiz to it’s results. Everything from what’s your best quality to choose a celebrity mug shot. Take the quiz and post your results below letting me know which character you are.

As much as it pains me to say it, I’ve taken this quiz about five times over the years and I somehow always get the McPoyles, which is clearly not settling…but whatever.

Leave a comment below letting me know which character you are.

#ThrowbackThursday

We all know the cast of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia now as Charlie, Mac, Dennis, Frank, and Dee, but where were they before they scored the rolls on this show? I thought it would be fun to take a look down memory lane and find clips from some of the first film/television rolls that each of the cast members landed in their careers. It’s crazy to see how far they’ve all come over the years and where they all started out before they were the crazy gang we all know and love.

Danny Devito as Louie DePalma on Taxi (1978-1983):

For six years, wayyyy before his role on Sunny, Danny Devito played a loud and outlandish taxi dispatcher in the hit series Taxi. I you watch this clip you can see that back in the day he had much more hair and much better eyesight, but the same crazy non-restricted personality that we’ve grown to love as he plays Frank Reynolds on It’s Always Sunny. 

Danny Devito as Mr. Wormwood in Matilda (1996):

Having not been alive for the generation that Taxi took place in, this was the only role prior to Sunny that I remembered Danny from. This movie totally reminds me of my childhood, and how much I hated Matilda’s con-artist dad. Looking back now though, he seems to bear a striking similarity to Mr. Reynolds. He even says, “nobody ever got rich bein’ honest.” Sound like anyone we know?

Kaitlin Olson as Janet on George Lopez (2004):

Before she was Sweet Dee, Kaitlin Olson appeared on an episode of George Lopez where she played a snarky assistant principal. While I have the utmost confidence that Dee’s sexual promiscuity and sailor mouth wouldn’t land her even an assistant role, the minor character’s sarcastic attitude and inability to deliver news appropriately reminds me quite a bit of Dee and her laugh-inducing flaws.

Rob McElhenney as Joey Timon on Law & Order (1997):

When I was a mere two years, Rob McElhenney was getting his acting career rolling with a spot on the show that it seems all of Hollywood has appeared on at one point or another. He plays a teenage bad-boy who ends up murdering an innocent victim just for the fun of it, and ends up facing 20 to life. Yikes… While Mac McDonald was once thought to be a serial killer, I’d like to think he’s not quite “bad-ass” enough to to actually commit that grave of a crime–hopefully.

Glenn Howerton as Corey Howard on That 80’s Show (2002):

One of Glenn’s first rolls before playing the narcissistic Dennis Reynolds, was as Corey Howard on That 80’s Show. While the show was not well-received by fans and only lasted one season, the 13 episodes that Glenn appeared in acted as the start of his career, as he would go on to become the gang member we all love to hate.

Charlie Day as Jeremy on Law & Order (2001):

4 years after Rob appeared on the show, we see none other than Charlie Kelly pop up on this crime series as well–see, I really wasn’t lying about everyone being on here at some point. Anyways, he stars as a laid back cool-guy witness, and his acting is soooo different than anything he’s done on Sunny that it’s almost funny to watch, since I know him so well as Charlie Day and all he represents. Vastly different than the cheese-obsessed dyslexic from Philly.

Charlie Day as Michael Boscorelli on Third Watch (2001-2004):

On a 6 season series that followes the lives of New York’s 55th precinct’s police officers, paramedics, etc., Charlie Day appeared as Michael Boscorelli in 5 different episodes throughout the series. He plays the brother of Officer Maurice Boscorelli (Jason Wiles) and carries out another unconventional roll in this early 00’s crime drama. While his performance is great, I’m not gonna lie, I’m glad soon after this stint he found his home on Sunny playing the roll he’s so clearly meant to be playing.

Top-Ten Tuesday: The Gang’s Best Quotes

For ten seasons now the cast of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia have been spitting out the most vulgar, outlandish, and utterly hysterical one-liners on television. As a result, it was a difficult task to choose just ten of the best quotes from the series as it’s progressed so far. However, these ten quotes are the ones that make me laugh out loud no matter how many times I hear them or read them–this is my list for the top ten quotes from the gang.

#10). “Hey-o! What’s up, bitches?!” -Mac 

#9). “Later, boners.” -Sweet Dee

#8). “Later, dudes. S you in your A’s, don’t wear a C and J all over your B’s.” -Charlie

#7). “See you later, Dirt Grub and Ronnie the Rat. Hope you suck each other’s rotten peckers until you get mouth cancer.” -Sweet Dee

#6). “You gotta pay the troll toll, if you wanna get into that boy’s soul.” -Frank

#1). Mac, I’m gonna stop you right there. First of all, your breath smells like an old lady fart passing through an onion. Secondly, I know you’re trying to manipulate me, and it’s not going to work. Get your hand off my shoulder, because I’ve got a fatty to burn. -Sweet Dee

Like I said, this was incredibly hard due to the plethora of quotes to choose from. So, just because I didn’t want to leave out some of my other favorites, here is a list of honorable mentions.

  • “I’m a…full-on rapist, you know? Uh, Africans, dyslexics, children, that sort of thing.” -Charlie
  • “I eat stickers all the time, dude!” -Charlie
  • “Hi. Um, I’m a recovering crackhead. This is my retarded sister that I take care of. I’d like some welfare, please.” -Dennis
  • “Oh, get a job? Just get a job? Why don’t I strap on my job helmet and squeeze down into a job cannon and fire off into job land, where jobs grow on jobbies?!” -Charlie
  • “I’m not fat. I’m cultivating mass.” -Fat Mac
  • “Dee, don’t be ridiculous…think of the smell. YOU HAVEN’T THOUGHT OF THE SMELL, YOU BITCH! Now you say another word and I swear to god I will dice you into a million little pieces…and put those pieces in a box, a glass box, that I will display on my mantle.” – Dennis

Agree or disagree with my list? Leave me a comment and let me know what your favorite quotes are from the show, and see if they made my list of top-ten picks.

Rob & Glenn Give Us the Scoop

Just wanted to share this with everyone–an episode of the Nerdist Podcast with guests Glenn Howerton & Rob McElhenney. The duo, along with the two hosts of the show, discuss a variety of topics like juggling hectic schedules and how their senses of humor come together to produce It’s Always Sunny. It’s a very entertaining segment, and I loved hearing such an in depth conversation with the guys outside of the show; you learn a lot about who they are as people and why that makes their show so successful.

You can skip the intro if you’re uninterested, as the actual interview begins about 3:00 into the podcast.
