"The Gang Solves The Bathroom Problem" is the sixth episode of the thirteenth season of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

Plot Edit

2:00 AM, on a Friday, Philadelphia, PA


Jimmy Buffett is in town and the positive vibes are alive at the bar. However, when Mac comes out of the women's bathroom, no one can leave until the bathroom situation is solved.




  • The Gang Solves the Bathroom Problem is a "Bottle Episode", taking place entirely within Paddy's Pub.
    • It is also one of the few episodes to feature no other characters beyond the gang.
  • This is the first appearance of Paddy's women's restroom; it is shown to be much cleaner than the men's restroom. However, it was implied to be cleaner in earlier episodes (Charlie Work).
  • This is the fifth episode where the word "fuck" is not censored in the original airing, after "Making Dennis Reynolds a Murderer", "Hero or Hate Crime?", "The Gang Makes Paddy's Great Again", and "The Gang Gets New Wheels".
  • Frank is incorrect about the Constitution saying "freed slaves are three-fifths of a person." It's actually the opposite: in the Three-Fifths Compromise, it was determined that three out of every five slaves in a state that allowed slavery would be counted when determining legislative representation. It was invalidated by the abolition of slavery with the 13th Amendment. However, he was also correct about his right to defend himself being in the Constitution; the only such claim made correctly in the episode.
