  • Carl,Harriette,mother winslow and rachel leave for the night leaving eddie in charge of laura and judy.Before they leave carl tells eddie no friends while they\'re gone.But it turns ugly when rodney invites a whole bunch of people over to the house to parmoreless

    8.5
    I think this episode is funny because eddie disregards carls orders of no friends over while they\'re gone for the night.And the football game in the kitchen with one of harriettes glass bowls.And i thought it was funny at the end carl goes to sit down on the couch and steve pops out from underneath the couch cushions after having a run in with a jock.

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • If the car couldn't start, most likley, Carl couldn't have let the window up (the car obviously had power windows and not crank) and couldn't leave the interior light on in the car. Also, they said they were on a dirt road, but what dirt road is a state road?

  • QUOTES (7)

  • NOTES (6)

    • Music: "Every Little Step" (video) by Bobby Brown

    • Starting with this episode the theme song "As Days Go By" slightly changes. The background music is less jazzy and softer than before. Also the end theme song also changes. It has a lot less accompanying instruments and the very end is slightly tweaked. "The Candidate" is the only episode to use the original opening/ending theme after this episode, due to being shot before this episode.

    • The German episode title is "Die Party des Jahres", meaning "Party of the Year".

    • The scene in the season 2 opening credits where Eddie, Laura and Judy open the lid of their dinner to find that it's burnt, and the scene where Eddie watches Steve dance, are both from this episode.

    • Guest star Tyren Perry is Jaimee Foxworth's sister.

    • Shawn Harrison makes his first appearance as simply a boy in a towel, which will transform to Waldo in the upcoming season.
