There’s something beautiful about It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia
doing a political satire episode that takes the satire so casually that it all ends in a fake funeral for a baby that never existed, but they’re pretending did in an attempt to save their own asses. Even being serious in a satirical sense would kill these guys, and you have to love that.
The money for her surrogacy comes in, so Dee splurges on a powder blue Vespa, and is showing it off just as she learns she’s being audited. It seems she claimed her surrogate baby as a dependent, with the unfortunate name of Barnabas. (It seems no one in the IASIP group knows what a real human being might be named. This has always been a fantastic running gag - they’re so disconnected from reality, they can never quite grasp it when it confronts them head on.)
