  • A baby interferes with Oscars plan to perform with Felix at the sportswriters dinner.

    This is not one of the better episodes of the 1st season,with a standard plot about a lost baby,but things are made worse by the way Oscar reacts to the baby.He is especially selfish and unsympathetic.While Oscar is occasionally thoughtless and loud,its usually because Felix is the reason.But this is one of the rare episodes that Felix is not overtly provoking Oscar.And Felixs concern for the baby is actually touching.Still there are some funny moments,especially with Murray,and the way they try to hide the baby from him.And its fun watching them do "Whos on First",that I wish they couldve shown the bit in its entirety.moreless
  • although I liked parts of this episode, the basic idea is one of the most used and re-used on Sitcoms. the "lost" baby that causes some trouble and is "found" by his mother by the end of the episode.moreless

    but as I say it had some good moments too. the fact that oscar covers the presence of the baby from murray by drinking his milk out of a bottle of beer is great. the story of Murray when he had the plastic gun is funny. the kid from next door has some moments in this episode, and I think he'll reappear once or twice during this first season.

    it's also interesting to see the differences of opinions Felix and Oscar share about what to do with the baby, although both of them have the best interest of the child at heart, Felix just has a little more faith in peoplemoreless
