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]

Episode Synopsis

Melissa and Zack throw Milo his first surprise birthday party, the only real birthday party he's ever had. [2]


Upon being invited to Milo's upcoming birthday party and learning that it has for years consisted solely of Milo, his family, and Melissa, Zack 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 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. 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, before the guests are forced to flee from a duck attack.

  • In the hallway, an image of a boy eating chocolate cake is visible. It may be a reference to the Roald Dahl book Matilda.


  • The Pistachio Protectors can be seen in the background chasing a flaming pistachio cart when Milo is biking just before he meets Elliot.
  • The song Mister Go (I've Gotta Go) was originally from the band Keep Left, a semi-active wonky rock band that Dan Povenmire collaborates in. A full version can be heard here.
  • The student that expressed a fear of Amanda obviously eventually found the courage to leave his bush as he is later seen waiting for Milo's birthday cake, standing next to Amanda no less.
  • This is the first episode where a character's birthday is celebrated, in this case, Milo, not counting the flashback of Sara's birthday in The Doctor Zone Files.

  • This and Smooth Opera-tor are the first episodes of the series to premiere on the main Disney Channel before airing on Disney XD.

    • But its pretty obvious that Milo's attempts to make sure the school dance went well sure won Amanda over.
