"Dennis and Dee Get a New Dad" is the tenth and final episode of the second season of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

Dennis and Dee discover the MySpace page of the man who turns out to be their real father. Meanwhile, Charlie and Mac visit Mac's convict father in jail.

Recap

8:00 AM on a Monday

On MySpace, Dee has received a friend request from a guy named Bruce Mathis that is claiming to be her and Dennis' father. They have lunch with Frank and their mother Barbara to sort out this rumor and Barbara announces that Bruce is their biological father. This sends Frank on a rant which ends in a stroke.

Dennis and Dee meet with Bruce to see what he is like. He is a very nice and giving individual who has dedicated his whole life to helping other people. They attend a fundraiser with him and have a great time. They try to convince their mother to get back together with him and they all meet at a hospital. They all try to give hope to sick children, but Dee, Dennis, and Barbara realize they don't care enough to be philanthropic.

Meanwhile, Mac and Charlie try to connect with Mac's father Luther who has been in prison for Mac's whole life. Luther asks them to smuggle heroin into prison. Instead, they try to be tough by helping Frank beat up Bruce. Mac and Charlie approach Bruce with a baseball bat after the fundraiser but Mac chickens out and Charlie is left to awkwardly take a picture of Bruce up close. They decide to lie to Frank and tell him that they bashed him, after which they drive away quickly.

At Charlie's apartment Frank prepares for a date with a one-night-stand he had 30 years ago. Dennis and Dee enter, asking Frank to be their father again because they didn't want to be as charitable as Bruce. He says no and answers the door to get his date -- Bonnie Kelly. Charlie slowly puts the pieces together in his head: he doesn't know who his father is and Frank slept with his mother 30 years ago.

  • The song, which Bruce, Dee and Dennis were singing at the "awesome lupus event" - is "The Greatest Love of All" (originally performed by George Benson; later, it became more famous in Whitney Houston's version).
  • When Sweet Dee says of Bruce "who is he? Patch Adams?" - she's referencing the movie based on the eponymous real person..
  • This episode is the first episode that references social networking, in this case it deals with MySpace. Later on, the 7th Season episode "The ANTI-Social Network" deals with Facebook. The 10th season episode "The Gang Group Dates" also deals with social networking, though not using any actual websites.
  • At 23:38, this is the longest regular episode of Sunny.
  • The restaurant that Dennis and Dee take Frank and Barbara to will be identified in multiple later episodes as Guigino's Italian Restaurant, but the transition shot before this episode shows the front of a restaurant/bar called "Bleu Martini".
