Episode Summary

Since having a baby, provocative disc jockey Jimmy (Dan Cortese) and his wife, Beth (Bianca Kajlich), have fallen into a droll routine. It's been nearly five months since they've had sex, and neither of them have gotten a night out since baby Otis was born. After a long night, Jimmy yawns on-air, which makes his coworkers argue that he's "losing his edge" - an argument that's solidified when he skips out on a long-awaited bachelor party so that Beth can have a night out with the girls. But his buddies have other plans - they crash his night of baby-sitting, moving the bachelor party to his apartment.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (6)

      • Rerun on UPN on April 2, 2004.

      • Filmed on April 19, 2003.

      • As is generally the case with pilots, the sets in this episode are slightly different than they appear in the rest of the series. It's most noticable in the DJ booth at KHOR.

      • Some sources listed Jennifer Elise Cox as a star of the show, but the next episode that aired featured Tammy Townsend as Pam, Beth's best friend. Cox's character, Kate, was engaged to Kevin (Lex Medlin), who has stayed with the show. In subsequent episodes he was a bachelor and only mentioned her twice. In "Girl Power," when he reveals that she dumped him, and in another episode he says that she left him at the alter.

      • Joey Slotnick (Joe Boyle) was originally announced as a star of the series but this is the only episode he appeared in. Patrick Breen later took over Slotnick's position, playing station manager Richard Crandall.

      • Wouldn't Beth have passed the bachelor party entourage somewhere as she was leaving the building?

    • QUOTES (12)

      • Carl: Man, I hate it when strippers talk about their kids!

      • Jimmy: Dude, being a dad changes you. I mean, every time I look down at this little guy I realize that he needs me to take care of him. I've never loved anything so much.
        Carl: Wow, sounds like being a dad changes you -- into a woman!

      • Jimmy: Dude, you just drank breast milk. That's Beth!
        Kevin: Got Beth?

      • Jimmy: You're putting beer in Otis's bottles!
        Carl: Hey, you're the one who named him after the town drunk from Mayberry!

      • Beth: Okay, so I left CPR instructions on the counter right next to the number for poison control.
        Jimmy: Poison control? You think I'm gonna poison him?
        Beth: No! But if you do, the number's on the counter!

      • Jimmy: Before your wife has the baby she is a sex machine. Okay, after the baby is born, the ol' sex machine shuts down for a while and, uh, well you gotta use the hand crank.

      • Kate: They're dying to see you and your new boobs!
        Beth: They are pretty awesome, aren't they?
        Kate: Yeah. I hate babies but I'm thinkin' about gettin' knocked up just to get a pair!

      • Boyle: I told you, there's no room for kids in morning radio. They make you lose your edge. That's why I never had kids.
        Jimmy: Really? I thought it was because no one would do you. I'm sorry. I mean for free!

      • Boyle: You know what it means when a morning D.J. yawns on the air?
        Jimmy: Yeah, he's tired.
        Boyle: No, he's dead. The only thing that makes people change their stations faster is four in a row by Kenny G!

      • Jimmy: Thanks a lot, Otis. You know, when you're eighteen and about to get some, I'm gonna pee on you!

      • Jimmy: I'll take care of him until midnight, even though I get up at four, if you just take one for the team.
        Beth: Take one for the team?
        Jimmy: Yeah. Yeah, you know, like when a baseball player gets hit by a pitch on purpose. It doesn't feel good but you do it for the team!

      • Jimmy: It's been ten weeks since Otis was born and you combine that with the last nine weeks of pregnancy and we haven't done it in almost five months. I miss it in there!
        Beth: I know, it's just... Well, last time it was in there for nine months and it kinda trashed the place.
        Jimmy: Okay, fair enough. Any other vacancies in the building?
