Baby Don't 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.
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.
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.

Good Luck, Charlie
Amy: So the lesson is if you ever try to pull anything over Mom... Good luck, Charlie!
Charlie does not speak yet.
Teddy: You guys, Charlie isn't even here.
Amy: No, little baby take a nappy-wappy upstairs.
Captain Stretchy: "Oh look a quarter!" [reaches for it and fails] "Oh whatever, it's not like it's a dollar, right?"
Gabe: In this hand, I have a quarter. And in this hand, an ordinary egg. So I put them in this hat... spin them around a little.. and... PRESTO!
[Egg and quarter fall out of hat when he turns it upside down and egg cracks.]
Amy: Bob! Move your butt!
Bob: I'm coming!!
Teddy: Alright... you guys have fun, stay out as late as you want. Oh, but not too much fun, we have enough kids already.
[Amy and Bob laugh, Teddy stops Bob.]
Teddy: PJ, you brought home the wrong baby!
PJ: What? No, I didn't.
[PJ tries to call Emma.]
PJ: Hello, is Emma there? This is a Chinese Restaurant? Sure, I'll hear the specials!
Gabe: Well...maybe we should call someone. Who do you call when you're trying to find a baby?
PJ: Captain Stretchy!
Captain Stretchy: Here's what I know. Her name is Emma.
PJ: I just told you that.
Captain Stretchy: I'll know it when I see it.
Teddy: Great! You'll help us tonight and we'll get you into that murdle tomorrow. You do understand we're not gonna put you in it that you have to do yourself.
Gabe: Hey, look. Captain Stretchy dropped his driver's license. 175 pounds, my butt!
[Teddy, Gabe, and PJ are with Emma's brother at the Mexican restaurant.]
PJ: Do you think it'd be better or worse if we had the Mariachi deliver the news?
