Good Luck Charlie Wiki

Charlie is 1 is the 8th episode in Season 1 of Good Luck Charlie.

Episode Summary

The hospital alerts the Duncan's that the baby is coming, and they all try to get there. PJ and Bob have to go behind a chicken truck on two peoples motorcycles, Teddy leaves a birthday she is the entertainment for, and Gabe, who appears to have a Mohawk since he is home alone and gets a ride to the hospital with Mrs. Dabney. Eventually, the rest of the family do get there in time and Gabe meets and learns of the motorcycle owners, Mad Dog and Francis' son Hog, who changed his name to Kevin. PJ meets a stressing new father in the waiting chairs; the man says it's obviously his first time. The man asks PJ how many times he'd been there, and PJ says 3. The man, believing PJ was a father, says how old he was the 1st time. PJ, not realizing he was believed to be a dad, says he was 2, referring to Teddy's birth. The man then leaves, disturbed. When they see Charlie, PJ and Bob are covered in feathers, Gabe has a Mohawk and Teddy is dressed as Frankenstein. While taking the photo, the nurse says, "Good Luck, Charlie." Back at the party, Mad Dog and Francis arrive at the door with their present for Charlie. Amy doesn't know why they're here, so Bob reveals they believe that for helping the dad get there and for being there, they should be godparents. They give Charlie a diamanté biker jacket.

End Credits
