The Most Low-Key Sociopathic Things The Gang Has Done On 'It's Always Sunny'

Voting Rules
Vote up the gang's plots and schemes that truly call into question their sense of right and wrong.

There's no arguing that the central characters of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia are rude, crude, and downright vile. The shenanigans that Charlie, Dee, Dennis, Frank, and Mac get themselves into just prove this fact over and over again. The gang's self-obsessed and sociopathic actions often snowball out of control, wrapping them up in situations that no human would ever deem to be morally correct or socially appropriate.

Fans of the series can ponder all they want about the intentions or motives of the Paddy's Pub-dwelling misfits, devising a slew of It's Always Sunny fan theories, but the truth of the matter is that they're all way too wrapped up in their own heads to care about what anyone else thinks about them.

    The Gang Repeatedly Siphons Blood From Frank While He’s Asleep

    Episode: "Frank Retires" (Season 10, episode 9)

    When Frank throws in the towel at the bar, he turns over all his shares to the gang. Frank's firstborn child is in line to take over, but Charlie and Dennis argue over which of them fits the bill. There's a dispute over whether or not Frank is really Charlie's father, but he refuses to take a paternity test to prove who is right.

    Desperate to compare the DNA, Charlie and Dennis decide to siphon blood from Frank while he's sleeping. Draining him of nearly all of his vital fluids, they take their sample in for testing. The results are far from acceptable, as the results show the DNA of four humans and one animal.
