Recap: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Episode 9.09 – The Gang Makes Lethal Weapon 6

Sunny 909

The Gang is trying to find someone to finance their Lethal Weapon 6 film. Their original backer, Frank, backed out because of creative differences over him wanting to include a full penetration scene.

First, they go to the Credit Union and show the woman the beginning of the film. It starts with a shaman woman bring Lazarus (Frank) back from the dead. Then we see Riggs (Dennis) approaching Murtaugh (Mac) for his blessing to marry his daughter (Dee).

At the wedding, which is officiated by a bearded Artemis, Lazarus and the blonde goon (Charlie) detonate a bomb that kills Murtaugh’s daughter. Riggs then goes on a green screen chase after Lazarus and the goon.

Pause. They are now at a tech company talking to a young Asian woman. They continue with a scene that they end up fast forwarding through because Mac is giving too much exposition.

She says she hasn’t seen any Lethal Weapon film and the guys agree that maybe their film is too male-driven. But the next scene in the film has a lot of stuff for the ladies.

They get to the next scene and it’s Dennis, Mac and some buff, shirtless, sweaty men playing volleyball. And touching each other. After the volleyball match, it’s time for the showers… with plenty of ass shots. Mac’s blackface and moustache starts getting washed off. So a quick cut and Dennis and Mac have switched characters. They then start horsing around, all naked and wet.

They’re now at a hedge fund manager’s office who isn’t really open to funding their gay porn. Mac defends the beauty of the scene while Dennis and Charlie tell the guy to keep playing and the move on to the next scene at a strip club.

The star stripper is Dee until she takes her robe off and it’s another stripper.

Now the guys are with Frank trying to persuade him to fund their film again and he says he will as long as they include what he wants.

Continue with the film, they are now at an umbrella factory. Riggs and Murtaugh are in a firefight with Lazarus and blonde goon. Lazarus uses blonde goon to shield himself from Murtaugh’s bullets.

They eventually get Lazarus to fall into a boiling vat of liquid. And now it’s back to the wedding. They have the shaman woman resurrect Rianne before killing her. Mac is dreading kissing Dee and a quick cut to the credits.

BUT! A deleted scene where Frank has sex with the shaman woman turned porn star.

The guys are back at the Credit Union.

“This is what we were trying to avoid by coming to you in the first place.”

Episode Thoughts
Now I loved Lethal Weapon 5 and that whole episode, but I was actually kinda underwhelmed with this one.

It was insane and there were fun moments, but I wasn’t laughing out loud like I have been for the last 8 episodes.

A detailed recap is nice and all, but you know what’s even better? Actually watching the full episode of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia!
