Tina's thirteenth birthday is coming up and Linda suggests to Bob that they should make it extra special since she will become a teenager shortly. Tina wants to have a party with a smoke machine and streamers and invite people from her class and more. She also wants the party to have a romantic moment with classmate Jimmy Pesto Jr., the eldest son of Bob's business rival, nemesis and owner of a restaurant across the street from him, Jimmy Pesto (Jay Johnston). Bob believes it is too expensive to afford what Tina wants but Linda begs him to pay for the party's requirements, even if it means to get an extension on his rent. Bob asks the restaurant's landlord Dr. Fischoeder (Kevin Kline) for the extension, which is declined. Instead, Dr. Fischoeder offers one of his side businesses to Bob so he can earn extra money as a taxi cab driver.
Bob accepts the offer while Louise becomes Tina's kissing coordinator as a birthday present to her to get ready for the expected kissing moment with Jimmy Jr. On the first night of his job, Bob starts to enjoy driving around the city, even befriending three transsexual prostitutes, Glitter (Steve Agee), Marbles (Jack McBrayer), Cha-Cha (Oscar Nunez). Prior to the party, Tina starts inviting classmates including Jimmy Jr., who needs permission from his father for the R.S.V.P.. It is later revealed that Jimmy Sr. forbids Jr. to come because of his rivalry with Bob and Tina refuses to have a party without Jimmy Jr. Bob tries to talk some sense into Jimmy Pesto, but Jimmy refuses unless Bob shaves his mustache and bring it to him as part of his collection. Tina disrespects him for his refusal to shave his mustache since he does not wants to negotiate with the Pesto family.
After a night out with the transvestites, Bob deliriously comes back to the restaurant (due to drinking alcohol and possibly taking crack). Linda tells Bob that Tina agrees to attend the party but only for a few minutes. Bob wakes up half an hour late for the party, and finds out it is not going well: the boys and girls aren't dancing, Gene in his role as the DJ and Mort working as the magician are appalling. Bob remembered that he invited not just his regular transvestite customers but others, including Marshmallow (David Herman) and a homeless man. Tina is disappointed in Bob for what he's done and refuses to talk to him. The transvestites mention to Tina that Bob worked really hard for the party and remind her that she has a good father who shaved off his mustache for her. She apologizes to Bob for what she said to him and lets him know that he already made the party perfect, even without Jimmy Jr. present. The transvestites recognize Jimmy Sr. as one of their dates, known as "Baby Num Num", a "diaper lover". Bob brings the transvestites over to Jimmy's restaurant to threaten him about his personal dates. He concedes with Bob's demands; Bob keeps his mustache hair and Jimmy Jr. is allowed to attend the party. Jimmy Jr. comes to the party, and Tina is grateful to Bob for what he his done. Tina and Jimmy Jr. kiss under the party's disco ball, with Louise's encouragement, and Gene plays a track for the moment. The episode finishes with everyone enjoying the party.
