Two Idiots and a Baby is the fourth episode of Drake & Josh. It aired on February 8, 2004.


Josh tells Walter that he and Drake will babysit his boss's son so that Walter can get a promotion, much to Drake's dismay. The baby disappears and Josh panics while Drake leaves with his band to play a concert.

However, underlying loyalty compels Drake to return and help Josh find the baby before Walter and his boss get home.


Josh: I said wind it, not murder it!

Drake: Ugh, now what are we going to do?

Drake: (picks up Megan, so close that their noses are almost touching) Where. Is. The baby?!

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • The baby pees on Drake, Josh, and Megan, then the scene after, the pee can still be visibly seen on Josh, but not Drake.
  • 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 the baby pees on Drake, Josh, and Megan, the "pee" is coming from the sink and rotating.
  • 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.
