"Being Frank" is the sixth episode of the eleventh season of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

A day in the life of Frank Reynold's as he tries to keep up with the gang's newest scheme.

Recap

This episode is told entirely from the point-of-view of Frank Reynolds. Viewers can hear Frank's internal thoughts and see through his eyes over the course of one day.

Frank is called to Paddy's Pub by Dennis but can't remember the latest scheme everyone is talking about. He is reminded to get his walkie-talkie so he heads back to his apartment where his landlord Hwang shows up and demands the rent check. Hwang chokes on a snake meat sandwich, then Frank eats the sandwich and also nearly chokes to death.

Frank wakes up in the hospital and is reminded over the walkie-talkie to get a car for the gang. The doctor seems to be telling Frank he has a brain tumor, but Frank doesn't listen and pushes him aside. He texts Pondy (Bill Ponderosa) who agrees to let Frank borrow his car. Frank meets the gang, who are all wearing guard uniforms, near a chain-link fence only to discover that Mac has tossed the rug entirely over the fence. Frank eats a drug-laced dog treat and heads to Artemis' apartment to obtain another rug.

Artemis is sitting shivah for her late aunt. Frank goes to her bathroom and snorts some drugs to counter-act the dog tranquilizer. He trips on the drugs then runs out of the apartment with the rug. Driving back, he gets a text from Pondy. Frank drives to the bowling alley where Pondy and Frank are beat up by a gang of angry men.

Frank wakes up in the trunk of Pondy's car in an impound lot. He exits and sees the gang on the other side of the fence. They tell him to get Dennis' Range Rover which is also in the lot. He barrels it through the fence and they all take off away from the lot.

  • Brad Lee Wind as Angry Dad

Trivia

  • The song Frank hears when he snorts the pills in Artemis' bathroom is Monster Mania by Figure: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pvcTmnbiv2Y
  • The scenes shown after Frank snorts the pills are probably a reference to The Prodigy's videoclip for their song "Smack My Bitch Up"
  • This is the first episode where you get to see a glimpse of Night Crawlers in action. They are using blankets in the game, which might suggest that they took Schmitty's suggestions for improving the game from the 6th Season Episode "The Gang Gets a New Member."
  • This is the first time the title of the show has not been shown on a black background.
  • Frank's hair dye is first mentioned in Season 10's "Frank Retires".
  • Franks final instruction as he chokes to "Throw me in the trash" echoes statements he's made in "A Very Sunny Christmas" and "Frank Reynolds' Little Beauties" in which he has expressed very little concern with what happens to his body after his death.
  • Frank also used the phrase "Shabooya roll call" in the Season 10 episode "The Gang Goes on Family Fight."
  • This is the only episode in which Bill Ponderosa appears that Maureen Ponderosa does not also appear.
  • This episode may be a nod to the movie "Enter the Void". It shares a very unique perspective and emotion with the movie.
