Baby Come Back is the 2nd episode in Season 1 of Good Luck Charlie. It continues the story of the Duncan Family that consists of Bob, Amy, PJ, Teddy, Gabe, and Charlie. It features the only appearance of Captain Stretchy and Emma.


It's been a while since Amy and Bob have been on a date, so Teddy encourages them to go to dinner while the kids babysit Charlie. When PJ takes Charlie to the park, he accidentally swaps strollers and babies with a cute girl, Emma.

Episode Summary

Teddy convinces Amy and Bob to go on a date to keep their minds off Charlie, so the kids have to "baby-sit" her. Unfortunately, PJ takes her to the park and accidentally swaps strollers with a girl named Emma. Then, the kids along with Captain Stretchy, a birthday entertainer, scour the town for Emma and Charlie. Meanwhile, Amy is worried about Charlie at a restaurant, where Emma and her family (and Charlie) also happen to be eating.

End Credits

Captain Stretchy and Gabe are in the park. Gabe shows him his half a quarter and egg trick which he previously tried earlier in the episode and failed it. However, when he cracks the egg, he drops the half a quarter into Captain Stretchy's palm, which had been "inside the egg." Captain Stretchy, amazed, asks how he did that, and Gabe tricks him into giving him a bribe in exchange for information and a new video game. Captain Stretchy pays him, and Gabe walks off and says, "What a chump", without telling him how the trick was done.
