Milo Murphy's Law Wiki

This is better than the best birthday ever!

Milo Murphy

"Party of Peril" is the seventh episode in the first season of Milo Murphy's Law. It first aired on October 26, 2016.[1]

Milo has never had a real birthday party due to Murphy's Law, but Zack and Melissa decide they want to change that, and proceed to throw him the biggest and best surprise party he's ever had along with Milo's family and classmates.


Upon being invited to Milo's upcoming birthday party and learning that it has for years consisted solely of Milo, his immidiate family, and Melissa, Zack mentions how sad that is and questions why they can't arrange a larger scale party for their friend. After talking it over with Brigette and Martin Murphy, the pair agree to hold it at a go-kart track for safety and insurance purposes. They then go about the process of inviting various classmates, with Melissa convincing Amanda to serve as the party planner. Melissa also convinces Milo to go pick up a package for her and then deliver it to the party site, alerting Elliot Decker so that he delays Milo's efforts.

Between the Murphys and the students, the go-kart track is soon prepared, and the party begins once Milo arrives. While Murphy's Law does come into effect, various precautions taken prevent anything from going catastrophically wrong. However, Diogee gets into the cake and ice cream, but Milo is not upset, as he has finally had a real birthday party for the first time in years. An accident then causes an explosion of cake and ice cream that lands on the party, to Milo's delight, him even saying it's even better than the best birthday ever. Just then the guests are forced to flee from a duck attack. (Honestly, We Don't Know What's With The Ducks At The End!)

Running Gags
