New Idea: The Odd Couple - The Birthday Party - S1E3

This idea is based on my idea to analyse every Friends episode.
In general the idea is to give you one episode per blogpost. In every blogpost I'll shortly describe what happens with the main characters of The Odd Couple in that certain episode. SPOILER
You can then play this in the game as you wish.
I don't know The Odd Couple as much by heart as Friends so I haven't written a main blogpost about it (yet).

General happenings season 1:
Sloven Oscar Madison (Matthew Perry) and the organised Felix Unger (Thomas Lennon), two friends from college, become roommates again after their wives leave them. Not long after they move in together, Oscar realises his mistake. Oscars assistent Dani and his lifelong agent Teddy have their hands full to keep Oscar on track while he's working as a sport radiohost, while worrying about his new living situation. Fortunately, there is the idiosyncratic neighbor Emily, who helps Felix to get used to his life as a single man and to keep his hosophobia (fear of dirt and germs) in control. Despite the fact that they sometimes make eachother crazy, they agree that after their divorce they can make something beautiful out of this absurd situation.

The Birthday Party - S1E3
Felix becomes upset at his surprise birthday party when a friend mentions his ex-wife. Oscar attempts to cheer him up and help him move on.

Oscar: He persuading Casey to go on a drink with him as she doesn't want to go on a date. He has to organise a surprisebirthdayparty for Felix at the last minute because he didn't want Casey to think of him as a bad friend for Felix. So he invites Rod, Dani and Teddy and organises it in a hurry.

Casey: She's back from Europe. She thinks Oscar is a bad friend for making Felix cry on his birthday. So he says he's giving a surprisebirthdayparty.
She asks Oscar to leave the surpriseparty because her plane leaves in 7 hours. But then Felix is missing and Oscar knows where he is and knows he is the one who has to go.

Emily: She really lives in the shadow of her sister. She's also a bit in love with Felix. She has put real thought and effort in searching a present for his birthday. She gives him a very expensive (not in the US available) vaccuum.

Teddy: His daughter has a sleepover. His wife said he was the host for the sleepover so he brought his daugter and her two friends. Oscar invites them in.

Dani: She gives Felix a bird, but it gets sucked with the new vaccuum.

Felix: It's his birthday. The first one since the divorce. He starts telling Casey how he met his wife (on his birthday). He met her while roller skating. Since then they meet every year at the roller skating. He wants to go, but Oscar says his wife has moved on.
After talking about true love with 3 little girls at the birthdayparty he goes to the place where he and Ashley always went rollerskating every year on his birthday. Oscar comes to get him.
