Plot[edit | edit source]

As Evelyn and Teddy's wedding ends, Charlie and Courtney head upstairs to his room for sex but they discover that on Charlie's bed is the dead body of Teddy. However Teddy's pants are around his knees and there is lipstick on his penis. Charlie tells Alan what has happened, and Alan thinks it's their mom but Charlies says "She already married the man, why would she bother?". Berta walks in sees the body and leaves. When they eventually get their mom to come upstairs she calls Teddy a bastard. Alan is surprised with Evelyn telling him she did not have sex with Teddy adding "I already married the man, why would I bother?" with Charlie having a gloating expression on his face. Berta walks in acting as if she just saw and says there's a limited time before the body decays and the smell goes through the house. Evelyn calls the police after calling the travel company and exchanging two tickets to Paris for one to Fiji. When the police arrive they examine the crime scene and find semen all over the room from Charlie's sexual encounters. The pants have been pulled up and the belt was in a new hole, later revealed to be Evelyn's doing, upset he cheated on her during the reception. They take Charlie, Alan, Jake, Evelyn, Courtney and Berta to the police station for questions about Teddy's death. During questioning Charlie hits on the investigator. He starts by saying he walked in, saw the body and did a Home Alone expression, but confesses about being with Courtney after thinking he may get sent to prison for false statement and will get prison raped. Alan is too nervous about it and doesn't make any sense and lets slips Evelyn will have to bury another husband. Evelyn mostly complains about the coffee and tells the fates of her previous husbands, which included food poisoning, heart attacks and a bathtub electrocution. Meanwhile Berta too becomes attracted to her investigator and says Teddy hitted on her when they first met. Jake is only interested in food and brought up he never goes in Charlie's room as the skin mags are in Alan's room. During the investigation Evelyn becomes the prime suspect because of money and revenge, despite her alibi proving her innocent until she states that she wasn't the one fight with Teddy over money. When they get to Courtney's interrogation, she simply sates she wants a lawyer. The group except for Courtny as sent t wait in the waiting room After Evelyn sent Jake to get her coffee, five prostitutes pass by with four saying hi to Charlie and the last saying hi sarcastically to Alan. Their all suprised but Alan says at least he doesn't have a dead husband with lipstick on his penis. The detectives say that Courtney's on the phone with her attorney which confuses Charlie until they explain. Eventually the crime team discovers that Teddy and Courtney are not who they appear. Their real names are Nathan Krunk (Teddy) and Sylvia Fishman (Courtney) and they are scam artists who travel the country stealing money from people with "more money than brains". Charlie accidently admits he was going to marry Courtney and gave her $50,000. They said the money and lifestyle Teddy had were from stolen credits cards. It is determined Teddy died of a heart attack while having sex with Courtney who was not his daughter as previously thought. The wound found on his head was from two days prior, as Charlie was parked outside Sylvia's apartment while she and Teddy had sex where he hit his head on the bed head. Charlie expresses his anger right as Sylvia comes out in cuffs. As Sylvia is taken in custody, Charlie says he'll wait for her resulting in everyone looking at him. All the Harpers and Berta are released from custody, and Evelyn continues her trip to Fiji where she met a wealthy realtor. Like through the episode, we saw food inside of Jake, which resulted in a fart at the dinner table. Charlie and Alan are disgusted while Jake says "that was a good one wasn't it?".
