It's Curtis' birthday, but after a blazing inferno interrupts the celebration it quickly becomes apparent that the Payne household is going to be quite a bit more crowded than usual over the next few weeks. Every year, when his birthday rolls around, Curtis makes an effort to "refresh" his look; this year the annual makeover involves bleaching his teeth, dying his hair, and attempting to squeeze back into his rookie uniform. Later, when Curtis dashes off to work, Ella and the rest of the family begin preparing for the big surprise birthday party. Despite the fact that Ella had given Janine the money to pick up a cake, Janine eventually shows up at the party making no mention of neither the cake or the cash, confounding everyone. Either way, Curtis isn't happy about getting older, and he, CJ, and Calvin are quickly called away to battle a four-alarm blaze. As fate would have it, the house that is burning belongs to CJ. Realizing that his old friend is now without home, Curtis immediately invites CJ and his family to stay with the Paynes for the time being - but not without listing a strict set of rules first.
