0 0 : Can't believe this is the show that showed a naked danny devito coming out of a sofa

slauge : "Laughs are cheap. I'm going for gasps", -Mac in the s04 finale: The Nightman Cometh. You sure got them this time, buddy.

mrsuloo69 : I can't help but laugh imagining all the new fans who will start watching 'Always Sunny' after seeing this scene and their surprise at what the rest of the show is

Jesse R : Jesus Christ I thought I was coming into a funny Mac Dance, but instead I received a masterpiece.

cambel mercera : That dance was unexpectedly fantastic. Sunny always surprise.

mayuri kurotsuchi : The gang desperately try to win an award...

Lola Odyssey : There is always something so strange seeing It’s always sunny in such high definition- in my head it is always 2005 quality, tops. Edit- holy shit thanks so much for the likes!!

Josh Robinson : Sunny broke all expectations by doing this, it's literally like watching something from an Oscar winning drama, who'd have honestly thought it's from a satirical comedy. An infinite applause goes out to Rob for this, utterly exemplary.

Joshua Waits : Mac is super religious,and feels torn because he loves God so much,but he is pushing her away with his "sin".He feels like God doesn't love him because he is gay,even though he keeps reaching out for God,and God is there,Mac feels like he keeps pushing her away.He is all alone and doesn't fit anywhere...Then in the second act though.God is telling him...I'm still here,if you reach out for me I will always be here,I made tou exactly the way you were supposed to be.Mac still can't except that God would want him now that he is gay,and so God clings to him,and hurls herself at Mac,as if to say you can never get rid of the love I have for you.Even in the end Mac buries his head because he is not worthy...But then God tells him the only thing he needed her to say...It's OK,It's. OK.It's OK....beautiful.

Mercutio : It's easy to forget how amazing Danny Devito is

Jessa Winters : This episode has taught me how shitty some of the show's fan base is

Alchemistic Academician : This actually made me cry, for real. When his dad left and he continued without him...

Alex James : I get it, as a queer catholic raised man I really get. Thankyou Rob and crew for this beautiful piece of authentic art.

Mo 2k : It should be illegal to look that good shirtless

Callum Fisher : I hear he had been cultivating mass over the years just for this dance...

clivewolves : I like how in this first episode of the series Mac took his shirt off and asked how they planned to use his new physique, then in the last scene of the series he got to use it in such a great way.

talkshei : i loved frank reaction and the dance was just great

Alice Silverlocks : Say what you will, this scene only cemented the Sunny as one of the greatest TV shows of our time in my eyes.

6THEEMPTYSPACE6 : I watched the series finale with some friends at a smoke up, expecting the usual shennanigans and dark, weird shit you come to expect from sunny. Instead were all just sitting there weeping from this absoloute masterpiece.

InsomniaDonkey : THERE IS A SPIDER (spider... spider...) DEEP IN MY SOUL (soul... soul...)

LudaChez : Man as amazing as the dance is, Danny DeVitos reaction was award worthy as well. His 5 seconds of screen time really help the scene

jonnyt8524 : I think the people saying this doesn't fit in Always Sunny haven't been paying attention to this season. Sunny has always done meta analysis' of current events or their own existence, through sometimes thinly veiled and sometimes obscure allegory. But it is usually like 2-3 episodes a season, max. Season 13 has been entirely about dissecting the last few years of society and subverting expectations. Glenn's unceremonious return in the first episode, the all female reboot of an earlier fan favourite, their take on the me too movement, the transgender debate, their take on stereotyping and identity, the subversion of the clip show trope, the take on fan superstitions and finally this. They've always been incredibly experimental with the criticisms of both pop culture and of the character study's that their roles have become. This was an unexpected, but fitting finale.

segamai : One of the best closing scenes for a show this year. And if you’re such a gatekeeping baby that you can’t accept five minutes of genuine emotion at the tail end of THIRTEEN SEASONS of cyincism, I feel real sorry for you. It was absolutely earned through the ongoing evolution of Mac’s character, and ffs this show has been on the air for a decade and a half, it would be really sad if they couldn’t take it and us out of the comfort zone once in a while and do something unexpected. It’s so much more exciting than always following the formula. And everybody saying it’s not true to character for Mac to be able to set this whole thing up because he’s such a fuckup, remember that his repressed sexuality is actually THE longest running gag on the show, and Mac’s one all-consuming secret obsession, together with earning his dad’s love. People aren’t one-dimensional, and even if they fuck up in so many other areas, everyone has at least that ONE thing that means so much to them that they will pour their entire soul into and make work because it’s their calling. Mac had been building to this catharsis for 13 seasons, I think some success is fucking earned. I honestly even hope that they don’t shrug it off next season, but at least artistically I’m so happy we could experience this on our screens.

Phil Lees : Sigur Ros - Varúð

Rubiecat : Oh god you unzipped me ! You unzipped me !!!

Kyle Carpenter : I love that after 13 seasons of this vile and hilarious show, the ultimate joke is that it's allowed to be gorgeous

ATMurdoch97 : I feel like Always Sunny is one of the only shows on television which provides a solid argument for having multiple seasons. Whereas other comedy shows seem to grow stale and stuck in their ways, Always Sunny juts pushes the boundaries and pushes the boundaries, forcing the audience to the limits of what they will actually accept comedy to be. This four and a half minute dance piece could only come at the end of the thirteenth season of this show and not seem out of place - were it in The Office or Friends or Big Bang, it would have seemed hopelessly contrived, but for whatever reason it MAKES SENSE in Always Sunny. Holy shit, they have done it again

Neil Waldron : Beats the high school reunion dance

E Pops : After 13 seasons of watching one of the most vile, crass, misogynistic, violent, homophobic, cruel, creepy, racist, greedy, and absolutely hilarious shows ever created the viewer is rewarded with Ronald McDonald delivering an epically poignant gut punch. The ending of the final episode of Season 13 was incredible.

Jon Targaryen : I never thought I would cry during an episode of It's Always Sunny. Bravo, Mr McElhenny. Bravo.

leporidae : The episode build up his idea of putting on a show and i was expecting a weird cringyworthy mac moment but then this turned out so fucking beutiful its astonishing and so unexpected just bravo sunny

cmmndrblu : I'm gay. this made me cry.

Charlie Stewart : Danny Devito is a fantastic actor

Ayzik Dig : got my hypnotized i forgot i was watching Always Sunny in Philadelphia for a minute

macconmhaoil b : this scene made me bawl like a baby. I don’t understand why people have so much criticism for this episode. It had major character development and *was* funny because it was so unexpected.

mayuri kurotsuchi : That look that Frank gives to Luther... Like he knew Luther wouldn't accept it..

m z : Rob McElhenney has done something important, he has raised tv and a sit com to the level of fine arts, the dance was perfection, the female lead so impressive, Robs masculinity and muscle in this dance made it all the more powerful, because in ballet and modern dance the men often are not pumped in the upper body, dance both modern and ballet grew out of the enlightment when man was studying and perfecting and learning what was the ultimate movements and range of motion of the limbs and human body .. that is how ballet was invented , Rob and the choreographer have created something that is true art, transcending the level of human, and reaching the moment where god touches man in the painting, i have studied dance, Rob has done amazingly powerful work, and full of masculinity, he has reclaimed the sacred moment. This scene is what all the arts and dance and entertainment strive to be, something even going back to greek drama and the olympics when man becomes god, kudos to all artists involved with this project, flawless. This is what the heart of philadelphia and love and mr. penn and everything that has been the american experiment wanted, man, each man, raising himself up to the best level in many arts and sciences and showing love.

Gemma Ritchie : I'm so in love with this. I was waiting and waiting for it to cut away to "reality" so I had to watch again to really enjoy it. Amazing.

Aamir Alam : I get it. Finally I get it.

Jonas De Clercq : thank you Rob, for everything, 13 years, some laughs mostly gasps

Scizor16 : My GOD this is perfect. To all the people who say this dance was a mistake becouse it's "not comedy" therefore this scene isn't acceptable - I COULD NOT DISAGREE MORE. Sunny is so much more than that. It is a satire, a critque, a parody of our fucked up world (reality). The way the show tackles important issues is always in such a manner, that thru absurdity of the main cast's acts it shows why something is wrong,retarded or why something is the right thing to do. This is no exception. Through all the series, we saw the inner clash between mac's refusal to accept that he is gay and his longing for being straight, his longing for fatherly love , his longing for acceptance for god- basicly acceptance. Such meaningless search lead to many many outright fucking hilarious mac moments. But this scene; his final realisation of he he really is, shouldn't be funny. Why should It be? There is nothing to make fun of here, nothing to satirize, nothing to ridicule. It's beautiful. He finally did the right thing; he accepted himself for who he is. This is why it's such a diffrent setting/tone as oppossed to the rest of the episodes, where the gang just despretly tries to be something they arent or when they just do horrible things for nothing else than their self benefit.

Remember liberals? I 'member. : This is simultaneously the saddest, most beautiful and hilarious thing I've ever seen.

Bonnie Patterson : They decided to shock us by being painfully beautiful instead of horrible. It's breathtaking.

Amorphis Bob : You gotta pay the troll toll if you want to get this boy's hole

Fabiana Pozzobon : I swear, I never watch this show but this is one of the most beautiful things I ever saw in my entire life

BEST TEETH IN THE GAME : Ron McDonald. What a legend.

VictoriaTew : I keep replaying this! I can’t believe it’s the same show. Beautifully done

Godman250 : I thought Mac's dad was gay as well because he had that threesome with charlie's mom and left her out and finished with a guy

Paul : Do people not understand the concept of subverting your expectations? I see so many people criticising this but this is honestly exactly how this episode should’ve gone and it’s how the season should’ve ended. For 13 years we’ve seen Mac go from the clumsy closeted straight guy whose role is pretty much just to play fiddle to Dennis’s schemes, struggling with his identity and role within the group to finally finding himself and accepting himself in season 11 after years of denial to then coming out to his father in this episode. Everything in this season built up to this (“why did I do it?” in episode 1) and it paid off. This is one of the best 5 minutes of a sitcom I’ve ever seen. Sometimes comedy can do this. Scrubs would have hospital crises because of patients infected with rabies one week, follow it up the week after with a main character struggling to accept his decisions and descend into alcoholism and then a week later JD would be monologuing and screaming eagle at everybody. And it never skips a beat because sometimes your writing has to go beyond ‘well these guys are funny but they have no depth’. This is the first time Always Sunny has branched into this territory and it has just put a huge layer of character development into place. For one, we see Mac fully embracing himself, we see how he bounces back from rejection by the father he adores and wants to impress and finally we see Frank fully embrace his role as the father figure of Mac, if not the whole group, something he has strongly stayed away from throughout the entire series. It’s incredibly well written, it’s incredibly well choreographed and it’s a much better climax than Mac telling his dad he’s gay and his dad hanging up the phone. Just to go back to my point about subverting expectation too. The scene a couple minutes before this ending scene where the dancer is leaving Mac’s apartment and Frank berates him is important too. It shows how Mac has been training this dance as a way of expressing himself to his dad. But of course we, like Frank, see it as nothing more than him hiding from himself and trying to impress his dad. The fact that this translates into Mac actually performing the dance in the end of the episode, spurred on by Frank, is just another layer to a character that really didn’t have a whole lot of depth beforehand. Also give huge credit to Rob for what he’s done in keeping the Mac character fresh. Fat Mac was an insane transformation to begin with but it began an arc that has been 6 years in the making to this point and it paid off, not only in what they managed to produce in the finale but in his own transformation. He looks great. But I’m sure he won’t rest on it and if the show needs him to adapt again, he’ll do it. He’s a brilliant professional and deserves a lot of credit.

Rocky Silver : So beautiful. I had difficulty believing this was actually Mac.
