After humiliating Andy at a nightclub, Kevin decides to lighten up. So at a party Andy throws in his apartment that night, Kevin gets very drunk and makes a complete fool of himself, muttering nonsense and dancing like an idiot.
Meanwhile, Kevin and his girlfriend Gwen are in his bedroom about to have sex, when he hears Kevin is still making a fool of himself. Despite Gwen's insistence of leaving him alone, Andy sighs with resignation, "he's my brother," and goes to take care of Kevin.
In the morning, Kevin has a massive hangover and lies in the bathroom, with Andy watching over him. Gwen is understanding of the situation and leaves, promising to see Andy later. Kevin decides being like Andy is too difficult, and on Andy's suggestion, decides to just be himself.

-In the classroom:

-Andy is seen eating Bugles (the snack) and drinking malt liquor.
-Inside Kevin's room:

-Andy buys Kevin a six-pack of Gruberhof brand beer.

-Inside Andy's room:
-While drunk, Kevin mentions two famous gay people from history. Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) was a writer of plays such as 'The Importance of Being Earnest' and novels such as 'The Picture of Dorian Gray'. Alexander the Great (356-323 BC) was king of Macedon; conqueror of Greece and Egypt and Persia.
- Each episode has a clean title and a dirty title. The clean title was for listing and promotion purposes. The dirty title was for the producers' own enjoyment (well, it was initially for what the former is for, but the WB put the kibosh on that). Cartoon Network's Adult Swim has no problems listing and promoting each episode under both titles, however.
- The dirty title from this episode comes from what an apologetic Kevin says to Andy after sobering up, and asking if basically, will the fact that Andy thinks he's a douchebag be a problem. Andy says he can live with it.
- At the end of the party, when Kevin is rolling around with a plan in his pants, two of the people watching him are Bill Oakley and Josh Weinstein, the creators of Mission Hill.
-"Don't let the bastards grind you down" by The Toasters is playing at the party.
-"Rude boy rock" by Lionrock.
