Alan and Chelsea were becoming very close and were spending lots of time together. Charlie realized that this could work to his advantage, and he spent time doing his own thing while Alan kept Chelsea happy.
Alan was spending a lot of time working on his new hobby - becoming a ventriloquist. The name of his dummy was Danny O'Day. Charlie said it wasn't a hobby, but a cry for help. Charlie believed Alan was a ticking time bomb. "He's always lonely but never alone," Charlie said, when Chelsea suggested that Charlie invite him to come to the movies with them if he was lonely. Chelsea said that it looked as if Alan was going through a tough time, and he should be surrounded by friends and family. Charlie didn't want him to come along, but he gave in and Alan tagged along with them, and brought his dummy Danny with him.
They went to see some French movie. Charlie didn't look very entertained, while Alan and Chelsea appeared to love the movie, and they bonded over it. Charlie said he would be in the lobby - he looked like he had had enough of the movie. They realized he wasn't coming back. The next morning, Chelsea and Charlie were lying in bed together when they heard Alan at the door. "It's 7:30 - gotta get a move on!" Alan yelled to Chelsea. Chelsea told Charlie that she and Alan had made plans to go to the farmer's market the previous night while Charlie was drinking in the lobby of the movie theater. Charlie tried to defend himself by saying he didn't want to sit in the car with the scary dummy, which is why he was in the lobby. After hearing about this, Charlie went to talk to Alan. He told him they needed to talk. Charlie asked Alan why he was taking Chelsea to the farmer's market. I think Alan said it was something that they both wanted to do. "You ruined my plans for a Saturday!" Charlie stated. Charlie told him in the future to be more sensitive to other people's needs.
While Alan and Chelsea were at the farmer's market, Charlie watched TV and drank alcohol while Alan's dummy stared at him. Jake made it sound like the dummy was talking, and Charlie looked freaked out. Jake wasn't supposed to be there that weekend, but he admitted that he had made a fat joke about his pregnant mother so she sent him to be with Alan.
