Two Idiots and a Baby is the fourth episode of Drake & Josh.


While Walter and his boss go out to dinner, Josh offers to babysit Max, much to Drake's dismay. After the two struggle to get Max changed and then put to sleep, Drake leaves to play at a concert. Josh panics when Max disappears and ends up getting stuck on the roof looking for it, with Walter and his boss on their way home. However, underlying loyalty compels Drake to return and help Josh find Max just before Walter and his boss return.



  • The title is a spoof of the movie Three Men and a Baby.
  • This episode, along with First Crush and Grammy, rarely air on American TV.
  • This episode has been shown on Henry Danger.
  • This episode is the first Dan Schneider production to ever show partial nudity as Drake, Josh, and Megan were washing Max naked and his butt is briefly shown.
  • In the episode, during the Schneider's Bakery closing credit, Dan says "Mmmm!" slightly differently. Also, the Nickelodeon light-bulb logo hums 6 times for the first time in TV order but not DVD order (on the DVD, episode 6 plays first then this).
  • This is the first episode where all scenes take place at night.
    • Though the opening comment takes place at afternoon.
  • This is the first episode where Drake and Josh sing a song together.
  • Max did pee Drake, Josh, & Megan in this episode. That means it's the first time you hear Megan screams.


  • When Josh is trying to pull off the phone from the base, the phone gets thrown across the room in the fish tank and breaks. Then about two scenes later, the phone is back on the table fixed up.
  • When Max pees on Drake, Josh, and Megan, the pee can still be visibly seen on Josh, but not Drake. His pee comes from the sink and rotating.
  • There are never any vines or leaves surrounding Drake and Josh's window, but whenever we see them looking out, the leaves and vines are around it.
  • When Josh flings the football out the window, you see it go down, but later it's on the roof. If it bounced, it wouldn't have bounced that high.
  • When Josh is dangling from the gutter, you hear Josh say he didn't feed Sheldon in kindergarten, causing Sheldon to pass away. In the opening sequence of Playing the Field, Josh says that his pet turtle, Sheldon passed away when he was in 3rd grade.
    • It is likely that his 3rd grade class got another turtle named Sheldon and that one likely died as well.
  • It's not Josh that falls on Walter's boss when he jumps from the roof. If you look carefully it's just a dummy with Josh's clothes on.
  • After Josh smelled the diaper and fainted, you can clearly see the pad he fell on at the bottom of the screen.
  • Megan's Pranks: Gluing the phone together and probably hiding baby Max to worry Josh.
