Parker and Travis return to Mickey's after paintballing, Ray comes to their table to take their order, and explains that he got a job there so he could pay for his and Grace's date. Parker and Travis then leave for Rollerland.

Robbie and Lily are at Lily's house, and Robbie is going through Mr. Randall's record collection. Lily is still wondering what Miss Allen's problem is with her, and Robbie explains that she doesn't have a problem, she is being a teacher. While going through the collection, Robbie finds an album called "Get Your Body Rockin'" by Leena Allen and Tempest, not realizing at first that it is Miss Allen. Lily then concludes that Miss Allen is being so mean because "she's nothing but a one hit wonder." Lily then performs a very harsh song about Miss Allen putting Lily down because Lily is still in the music scene, using the hook "Those who can't do teach." Miss Allen then responds to Lily saying that the song was good, but not showcase material. Then Lily says in front of the whole class that she's the best musician out of everyone and that Miss Allen is only doing this because her career didn't work out, and she's taking it out of Lily, Lily then storms out of the classroom, but not before Miss Allen tells her not to slam the door because "that would be a little over the top."
Ray and Travis are talking, revealing that Ray is now working in the kitchen at Mickey's. Travis then tells Ray about what he said to Parker, and then realizes that her talking is only a distraction to avoid letting anyone in.
Parker is talking to Lily, and confesses that she is messing their chances up, and that she turns into a chatterbox. She struggles wanting to tell Travis how she feels, but she can't seem to find a way.
Lily then begins playing a tune on her guitar when Parker says "I haven't heard that one in a while" Lily responds "I just wrote it", she then plays the tune again, and rushes off to Miss Allen's. Lily confesses to Miss Allen that she has been writing the same song over and over because Miss Allen liked the first one, and Lily thought she would keep writing it because Miss Allen did like it. Miss Allen says that is exactly what was wrong, and Lily then apologises for being so mean. Miss Allen then reveals to Lily that she got an A on her harsh song, but docked her down to a B for being mean. Miss Allen says that she wouldn't have told Lily the real problem before because Lily wouldn't have listened, and she says Lily has a lot of talent, so much that she could really make it. She also gives Lily the chance to write another song, and possibly get into the showcase.
Travis and Parker come together to apologize, and Travis confesses that he is so afraid because she is so individual from everyone he's met, Parker agrees, and says to him that she really likes him, but that she just gets nervous. As she is talking, Travis leans in and kisses her, leaving Parker speechless.
Travis and Parker are then eating at Mickey's and Ray is busing the tables, as Grace walks up to him and asks what he is doing. He tries to keep the lie, but then confesses. Grace is okay with it, and tells Ray that she doesn't care where he takes her. He jokingly asks if that means he can quit his job, but then a huge pile of soap comes from the kitchen and Grace says "I think you just got fired."
On Friday's showcase, Ray takes the stage to introduce the event, and Mickey gives him a job as an MC. No Man's Land then takes the stage, and sings Lily's newest song.
