  • Episode Description
  • Down The Drain: After his toy disappears down the bathtub drain, Tommy worries that he'll get sucked down the drain, too. After Angelica assures Tommy and Chuckie that yes, babies can and do get sucked down the drain, the boys do everything they can think of to avoid taking a bath. Let Them Eat Cake: Didi's half brother, Ben, gets married. All Tommy and Chuckie can think about is the fact that they'll get cake after the ceremony. Things take a turn for the worst, though, when Elaine, Ben's bride, gets cold feet and disappears.

    • Drew: I remember Didi's baby brother since he was running around in diapers. Stu: He was; remember the bachelor party yesterday?

    • Charlotte: I have to go, Jonathan; I'm at a friend's merger, er, wedding.

    • Chuckie: (Cutting the middleman by explaining that Tommy will explain why they should look for the cake) Why don't we just skip it this time and give it a go?

    • Angelica: Don't let them tell you "You can't get sucked down the drain", 'cause you can... big time! (After leaving Chuckie's room) Ha, ha! Suckers!

    • (After Cynthia is accidentally flushed down the toilet after Angelica "turned on the bubbles" for Cynthia, while playing "Jacuzzi") Angelica: It's true! It's true! You can get sucked down the drain!

    Trivia (3)

    • Since Ben is Didi's younger half-brother, that means that either Boris or Minka (her parents) are either previously divorced or widowed. Since Boris and Minka are currently her parents, one of them is not her natural parent.

    • Goof: In "Let Them Eat Cake", when Charlotte is talking to Mr. Yamaguchi, she says "Moshi Moshi Yamaguchi san desu ka?" That's not correct Japanese; it doesn't translate out well. "Desu Ka" is not a complete sentence. It needs the word "nan" which means "what".

    • Goof: When Chuckie handed Tommy the clay bottle, the lid popped off when Tommy dropped it. However, when we saw it on the tub, the lid is still on.

    Allusions (2)

    • Let Them Eat Cake:
      Tommy's Uncle Ben is about to marry his wife-to-be Elaine. The couple's names are very much the same as the two characters of the 1967 Mike Nichols film, The Graduate. Coincidentally, the plot of the episode focuses on the wedding couple's fear of commitment to one another, much like the characters of the movie.

    • Tommy, Chuckie, Angelica: Let's fill it up with clay-doh. Too bad the play-doh didn't work.
      Obviously, clay-doh is play-doh. But, they make a mistake where Angelica says 'Too bad the Play-doh didn't work' which is a mistake.
