It's Paul's birthday once again and he lives in fear when this day comes every year; Not because he's a year older. but as he says, something bad always happens to him. Over the last four years, from 1991-94, we receive a "sample" of Paul's past birthday misfortunes and see why this "haunts" him every year since he was a kid; From Jamie almost leaving him, to having a catered party being given to him and only two people being there due to a freak spring snowstorm to having a surprise party thrown for him and is on the brink of crashing, due to a combination of exhaustion and being given a sleeping pill accidentally by his sister-in-law Lisa. Now we are back to the present time (1995) and we find out that this year is no exception!!!
Did You Know?
In the flashbacks to 1992, Paul's birthday coincides with a massive snow storm that shuts down Manhattan. Paul's birthday in the series is April 19 and that date in 1992 was in the middle of a cold wave (for that time of year), but the temperature was in the low 40s that week and the city did not experience the sorts of blizzard shown.
