  • Funny episode

    Funny episode, and a hit to the show. Jake's 12th birthday was one to remember as the hot 22-year old girl Kandi has her good looks and Jake taking Alan's NON-vitamins was great as well.

    This was funnier and better than what most people thought. It was like an old classic to this series. More laughter and comedy.

    Overall, Kandi played the best role, along with Jake who said a few things here and there that made me laugh. Yay... This episode focussed more on Kandi, which was what I wanted after so many Mia based shows. Jake's birthday episode is one to keep fresh in your memory. I loved the cat scene, nicely well done. Rose and her new boyfriend seemed to build it up more for laughter and the plot. Great episode that I could classify as "Well Written".moreless

    A good episode after a recent spate of lacklustre episodes. The comedy was good but could have been better. Alan just can't seem to have enough of her girl friend Candy, well who can ! She is just so damn sexy and hot. I guess I haven't seen many women with a better figure than hers. Berta was good as usual. Her last line about Jake needing another birthday cap was hilarious. One thing surprising about this episode though was the fact that Charlie wasn't with any woman at all. I guess it was just one of those rare episodes.moreless
  • Not the best story, or the funniest

    The beginning with Jake and the blender was funny. Allen with the stupid girl is getting old. Rose having a new boyfriend was great. Rose having her boyfriend say charlie's name was creepy. The vigra thing at the very end was gross. Having a little boy take a serious medicine, even for a joke, was wrong.

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Goof: In this episode, it's said that Jake is turning 12 years old, but in season 1's "I Remember the Coatroom, I Just Don't Remember You," the family was celebrating Jake's 11th birthday, which was 2 years ago. Shouldn't Jake be 13 years old now?

  • QUOTES (21)

    • Jake: Don't you want to be the first one to wish me a happy birthday?
      Charlie: Jake, I swear to God.
      Jake: Wait! Not Yet! 5-4-3-2-1. OK, now!
      Charlie: Get out.
      Jake: You can give me your present now if you want to.
      Charlie: If you leave immediately, I'll give you the gift of life.

    • Charlie: It will be a little tense at first, but you can lighten the mood with your Booty story. That was mighty funny, partner.
      Alan: (Fakes Laughter) Shut Up!

    • Alan: Jake just invited Candy to his birthday party.
      Charlie: Oh, don't worry, you still have the inside track!

    • Jake: What's a booty call?
      Charlie: (to Alan) I figured you didn't want me telling him. Was I wrong?

    • Jake: What's a booty call?
      Charlie: Well, it's... you know this is more of a thing a son should learn from his father.
      Jake: Oh, okay.
      Charlie: Maybe you should ask him now.
      Jake: Alright.
      Charlie: I'm going to hell.

    • Jake: Who's that?
      Rose: Gordon, my boyfriend.
      Jake: How come he's not allowed in?
      Rose: I'm trying to avoid an awkward situation.
      Charlie: Too late.
      Jake: You bringing him to my birthday party?
      Rose: I don't know. Charlie, is the wound too fresh?
      Charlie: I think I can handle it.

    • Rose: Listen closely. Once I go, I'm gone.
      Charlie: Really? I've never seen that side of you.

    • Rose: Gordon is my soul mate. He completes me. We're inseparable. (To Gordon) Wait here, I want to talk to Charlie alone.

    • Charlie: (To Alan) I'm just surprised you can keep up with her. I thought by now she would have worn you down to a few vertebrae and a pool of spinal fluid.

    • Alan: Her youth is like an aphrodisiac. I feel younger. I feel more....I don't know how to describe it! Manly.
      Charlie: I know what you mean.
      Alan: And I'm performing in what can only be described as a very enhanced level.
      Charlie: Right.
      Alan: You know, 'between-the-sheets'-wise.

    • Alan: Why do you let Jake use the blender?
      Charlie: I'm hoping he'll eventually stumble in to a margarita.

    • (We hear the blender roar and then spill the contents)
      Jake: Aww, man!
      Charlie: You forget to put the lid on again?
      Jake: Maybe.

    • (Jake is filling a blender with numerous foods)
      Charlie: Morning.
      Jake: Morning.
      Charlie: What are you making?
      Jake: Breakfast.
      Charlie: Have you considered orange juice and a piece of toast?
      Jake: It's in there.

    • (Jake is in the bathroom and doesn't want to come out)
      Judith: Did you eat anything?
      Jake: Just coffee and vitamins.
      Judith: You let him drink coffee?
      Charlie: Just a zip.
      Judith: And you gave him vitamins, too?
      Alan: No, we don't have vitamins around the house. Jake, where did you get the vitamins?
      Jake: From your cabinet.
      Alan: I don't have vitamins in my cabinet.
      Jake: Yes, you have. There was a blue bottle with a "V" on it.
      (Alan freaks out)
      Alan: Uh-uh...
      Bertha: Looks like the kid need another party hat!

    • Rose: I have a new man in my life.
      Evelyn: Does the man know yet?

    • Charlie: Rose has a boyfriend.
      Alan: A real one or like Toby, the astronaut?

    • Alan: Kandi, you're a remarkable girl.
      Kandi: Thank you.
      Alan: Unfortunately, so am I.

    • Charlie: Alan, there comes a time in every man's life when he has to make a choice: does he want to be loved, or does he want to get laid. Fourteen years ago you made the wrong choice. You got married, and you wound up with neither. But now, fate has given you another chance. Welcome it. Embrace it. Grab its pert little ass.
      Alan: What am I supposed to do, walk into my son's birthday and say, "Hey everybody, look at this gorgeous 22-year- old woman I'm having sex with."
      Charlie: Oh, don't be silly. You don't want to rub their faces in it, you just want them to know where yours has been.

    • Alan: You see Jake, in the old west, cowboys could be out on the dusty range for months at a time, and they get mighty dirty. So they'd mosey into town with nothing but the clothes on their backs, and they'd need to wash them. So what they'd do is, they'd go down to the creek, and strip down until they were wearing nothing but their boots.
      Charlie: Why'd they keep their boots on?
      Alan: Rattlesnakes. Anyways, in order to warn people that were swimming that a naked cowboy was on his way, he would yell, or, if you will, call, "Booty! Booty!" Ergo, the Booty Call.
      Kandi: Wow Alan, you really make history fun.
      Alan: Well, thank you.
      Kandi: So when did it start meaning casual sex?

    • Charlie: Hey, here's a fun fact. You're sleeping with a girl who was born when you were in junior high, and yet there's a good chance she lost her virginity before you did.
      (Alan scoffs, shakes his head, and then starts to do the math in his head)
      Charlie: And here's another fun fact: I'll bet she's had sex with more girls than you, too.
      Alan: (scoffs again, and again does the math and smiles) That is a fun fact!

    • Alan: Sorry I'm late, Kandi and I had morning sex.
      Charlie: Good for you.
      Alan: Twice.
      Charlie: Congratulations.
      Alan: She didn't even wake me up for the first one. I almost missed it.
      Charlie: Well I've always said a 22-year-old girl is like a good carpenter, no wood gets wasted.

  • NOTES (1)

    • The German episode title is "Was ist ein Quickie?", meaning "What's a Quickie?". The French title is "Le goûter d'anniversaire", and the Italian title is "Festa di compleanno", both meaning "The Birthday Party". The Spanish title is "De ahí, ponerse las botas", meaning "Ergo, Filling Your Boots".

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • At the beginning of the episode, Charlie sees Jake using the blender to mix some breakfast ingredients. Jake then yelps as he turns the blender on without putting on the lid. In the movie Lucas, Charlie Sheen played a character named Cappie, who turned a lid-less blender on during home economics class and created a mess the same way Jake did.
