Question: Is Charlie's house the same set as Lavern & Shirley's house when they move to California? I think it's the same living room w/o the view of the Pacific.

aliciaintahoe

Answer: To confirm, it is not the same set. In fact, the "Two and Half Men" production staff have officially denied their set is based on the "Laverne and Shirley" set, but just appear similar since they share a Spanish Colonial style. In addition, "Two and Half Men" and "Laverne and Shirley" were produced by two different companies and shot on two different stages.

Bishop73

Chosen answer: No. It's very similar, but not the same set.

White Lock

Answer: It's the same set.

Go Get Mommy's Bra - S2-E4

Question: So after they find the bra, both men assume that it was left there after a sexual encounter. Women change their clothes in cars all the time. And since Alan usually avoids sexual topics, wouldn't he at least have assumed that it was just left there? After all, when you are dressing after sex you should notice a bra missing; not so much if you were just changing your clothes.

swamphawk

Chosen answer: Alan might have thought the bra was too fancy to belong to a regular woman, "I'd love to meet the girl who filled this", he says. He assumed it was one of Charlie's many women.

Question: Are laws in USA really that strict about alimony for the ex wife? Because Jake spends equal time with his both of his parents, why would Alan have to pay Judith any kind of money? If Alan wouldn't be in touch with Jake, and Jake would live with his mother all the time, in that case alimony would make sense. And even more bizarre thing, why on earth does Alan have to pay alimony to Kandi? They didn't had kids, they were just a married couple which divorced, and continue to live their lives like before.

Feather

Chosen answer: You have confused alimony with child support. Alimony is an obligation to provide financial support for a former spouse. Usually it's an obligation to the spouse who made more money during the marriage.
