Characters Present


Chas quits his job as a bureaucrat when he finds a new career that's suitable for both himself and Kira -- peddling coffee. In this episode, Chas and Kira opens a café called The Java Lava, which will feature a variety of coffees and other drinks, plus a playpen for the Rugrats and the other visiting babies. However, the first day of business isn't doing well -- no customers, other than Chas's friends, came in; there were technical difficulties with the equipment (some of it invented by Stu); and the coffee is too strong, even for Betty, who normally swears by it. Kira's solution -- hire a Feng Shui (pronounced "thing schway") expert to find the faults with the business, and to rearrange things to make things better, spiritually. This not only involves rearranging furniture and appliances, but also placing various gems and trinkets around. That makes the Rugrats believe that the "Fun Way" guy came by to play a game with the Rugrats.


  • Chas and Kira started making plans for The Java Lava in Big Brother Chuckie.
  • Chronologically, this episode is meant to come before The Fun Way Day, as this is the episode in which Chaz and Kira announce that they'll be going into the coffee-shop business, complete with a look at the shop before its remodeling. Confusingly, though, this episode came long after "The Fun Way Day" in both production and airing order for unknown reasons.
  • Beginning with this episode, the episode title cards are "enhanced," with the text slightly zooming in as the title splash appears, and then zooming out as the splash disappears.
