Grumpy maid Berta's airhead daughter Cheryl Ann needs a babysitter for her daughter, so Charlie allows Berta to bring her along. Alas, at sixteen Prudence is mentally barely Jake's equal, but physically more than any Harper handles easily. Even Charlie needs a pretense-girl-friend, a part Rose enjoys, groping and kissing her 'monkey-man'. Prudence makes it much harder to rebuke Judith's complaints that Charlie has a bad influence on Jake. At night, Prudence seeks a place to crash- but not alone. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


The title refers to the filtered tip brand of Camel cigarettes that was introduced by R.J. Reynolds Tobacco in 1913 and is famous for the package design that used a camel named 'Old Joe'. See more »


When Prudence says that the bassist of a rock band wrote a song, "Dear Prudence," about her, Charlie responds that it sounds like a song a bassist would write, presumably referring to the song of that title recorded by The Beatles. While that Beatles composition is credited to both John Lennon and Paul McCartney (the latter being The Beatles' bassist), John Lennon actually wrote the song by himself. See more »

Crazy Credits

As with the end of every episode, Chuck Lorre has his own Vanity Card. This episode vanity card reads in part. Which is the same as episode 1.6. "This is the official 'I have nothing worth writing about' vanity card. It will run whenever I have nothing worth writing about. Don't be surprised to see it quite a bit. From now on, when our schedule requires me to deliver a new card and I'm empty, I'll simply say 'Run one eleven'. A check of the one hundred and ten cards I've already written will quickly demonstrate that I should have written this card a long time ago. Why didn't I? Vanity. I have become so vain about my vanity cards. I was determined to write a new one each week because, well...I'm just that kind of guy. But I'm older and wiser now. I know when I have nothing to say. And that knowledge is freedom. Freedom from the constant need to win your approval. And more importantly, freedom from the obsessive and relentless need to end each vanity card on a joke. Governor Schwarzenegger. See more »

A stand out episode from the first series
17 March 2017 | by studioATSee all my reviews

By this its 12th episode 'Two and a Half Men' was really starting to find its feet, and this episode is a good example of this. It's one of the highest rated on this site, so obviously people agree.

If anything Charlie Sheen and Jon Cryer play second fiddle to Megan Fox, and that's really the central joke. There's very little plot to be found elsewhere.

The writers are learning by this point which characters they can do more with, so Judith features only minorly, and in contrast Berta plays much more of an active role.

I wouldn't say this is one of my favourite episodes ever, but it's a good one, and a huge step up from what the show would later become.
