Gabby Duran & The Unsittables (2019) s01e14 Episode Script

Who Is Joey Panther?

1 (crowd cheering, applauding) ("Bright Lights" by Jamillion playing) Jamillion Enter the spotlight Hop on stage And watch their heart stop Hot spot I'm on blaze Takin' the top slot It's so insane way they cheer my name I'm the greatest they say (Wesley grunts) That now that I made it they hate it Take a picture I'm famous The lights cover the stage They're all amazed When the spotlight center the stage Let's dance.
Now all I see is bright lights Flashing so turn the music up Roll the cameras action I wanna see the bright lights Flashing And let the music through your soul Lose control And that is how our first dance will go.
It's gonna be epic! It sounds like a dream! One question though: In this imaginary scenario of the perfect school dance, why did I trip? (chuckles) Well, I had to make it realistic.
There were doves! (theme song playing) Oh, yeah I do normal like a fish rides a bicycle Fit in like summer and an icicle Don't fight it, just be an original Ooh, ooh, ooh I roller skate outside the lines When I try to stay in, it's no surprise It's a fail, it's okay, I'm one of a kind One of a, one of a kind So anytime I feel some type of way Don't understand the human race So what, so what, so what I do my thing, I do my thing You do your thing, You do your thing When we don't fit in We stand out in the crowd and we shout it loud I do my thing, I do my thing I'm the one and only, I'm the one and only Don't try to fit in, Don't try to fit in Mm-hmm, I do my thing (Gabby sighs) Our first school dance is in two days.
It's supposed to be the most fun night of our lives, and I literally have nothing to wear.
You should see my closet.
Two tees, three zip-up hoodies, and one hand-knitted sweater that says, "Grandma's Least Favorite.
" Grandma really knows how to gut me.
They're not gonna know what hit 'em when the three of us roll in.
Has any school dance ever been hit by three hurricanes simultaneously? Yeah, exactly! Except I can't go.
What? Why? Uh, because I'm a touch telepath.
And the last time I was around a bunch of kids from your school, my brain got fried.
Excellent point, but still that's a bummer.
Don't worry, kid.
You'll be there in spirit.
- Wesley's bringing a date! - Sky! Wes! Are you serious? I can explain! It all started six years ago when I found myself feeling a hurt for 'gurt Yogurt, that is.
I don't know if you know this about me, but I'm a bit of a yogurt hound.
So when I saw Rhonda there with a cup of prime Icelandic yog', I knew I had to have it.
So, anyway, I asked her.
Rhonda, can I please have some of your yogurt, please? And Rhonda was like Yes, but in exchange, you have to take me as your date for your first school dance.
Wesley: Honestly, I thought she'd forget.
Just tell her you can't go! This dance is supposed to be me blowing minds with my two best friends, not me as a third wheel! Gabby, I'm a man of my word.
I can't back out.
That's kinda sweet, actually.
Don't worry, okay.
The three of us will have fun together! Rhonda's great.
She's a grade below us, she's nice, she babies me, she has brown hair What was that? - She's has brown hair.
- The other thing.
Rhonda kind of babies me.
Please expand on that further.
Rhonda and I always used to play house when we were little.
Now, any time I bump into her, it's like she wants to mother me.
I promise you won't even notice! It'll still be the best first dance ever.
Yeah, sure.
Best dance ever.
Android Fritz! Hey, Gabby! Real Fritz! How's it going, fuzzball? Now that my favorite babysitter's here? It's all gravy! Gabby, check out what my new body can do.
Whoa! Finger snapping! You're getting really good at building these human bodies.
I had to go through a lot of prototypes.
(door hisses) (clangs) Closet full of bodies.
Creepy, but cool.
(chuckles) I love you, Gabby Duran.
- What was that? - Nothing.
Hey, do you wanna come over tomorrow night, too? My parents will be here, but we can still hang out! Oh, wish I could, buddy, but I have my first school dance to go to, and I really don't want to miss it.
I could go with you! Check this out! Sorry, Fritz, but it's just for middle schoolers.
Oh, okay.
It's all gravy.
But can I ask you a question? If you're so excited about this dance, how come you don't sound excited? I guess because I just pictured it differently, you know? Dancing with my friends, stretch Hummer limo.
But now I'm gonna be a third wheel to Wes and Rhonda.
And quite frankly, I don't know where we're at with the stretch Hummer limo thing but as you say, it's all gravy.
And who knows, maybe Rhonda will be really cool.
There! Now when your food comes, you'll be safe from spilly willies.
Wesley: Thanks, Rhonda.
And thanks again for suggesting that we all hang out.
Well, I figured since we're all going to the dance together, we should get to know each other.
Hey, just as long as we're tearing up the dance floor, we're gonna be fine.
Oh, I hate dancing.
Rapid movement makes Rhonda pukey.
And Wesley won't be dancing either.
Good news though: We'll be showing up in style.
A stretch Hummer limo? Even better: My mom's minivan! We have to drop my little sister and her friends off at soccer practice first, but it's totally on the way.
Well, mostly on the way.
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go wash my hands.
Wes, are you coming? No one likes a dirty Daniel.
So Rhonda is The last person I'd want to go to my first dance with? Please don't back out on me! I need you to be my buffer! She's weird when it's just me and her.
What I just saw is less weird? Ugh, fine.
I'll do it.
But only because I am such a good friend, plus I have no other options.
But mostly the good friend thing.
Thank you so much.
I gotta go wash up.
Don't wanna be a dirty Daniel! I couldn't help but overhear, but it sounds like you have a dance problem on your hands.
Umm who are you? I'm new in school.
The name's Joey Panther.
(panther roars) And you are Miss Gabby Duran.
Okay, first of all, that can't possibly be your real name.
And second: How do you know me? Game recognizes game, Gabby.
You are dope.
Off the chain.
And your first dance should be the same.
That's what I've been saying! Look I know we literally don't know each other at all, but will you Girl: Whoa! Go to the dance with me? Unless you have other plans.
Rhonda: Let me see your hands! Wessy needs to wash his hands again, yes, he does! Oh, and I can get us a stretch Hummer limo.
I'm in.
Huh! Gabby: After I said yes, we ended up getting fro-yo.
We talked for hours, and turns out, Joey Panther is dope! We like all the same movies, same music, and get this we both like pizza! That's so romantic.
Just like when Madison met Victor in my favorite book, My Boyfriend the Zombie.
Only, Victor tried to eat Madison, so a little different.
Uh, romance? No, no, no, no, no.
Joey Panther and I are about one thing and one thing only: Dance supremacy.
And also really long cars.
Ugh, I wish I was going to be there to see it! Have you told Wesley you can't be his Rhonda buffer anymore? Uh not yet.
But he's my best friend, so I'll let him down in the best possible way.
Through text? Yep, totally.
I gotta find something else.
I look like a loose-skinned penguin.
(Sky laughs) Hmm.
What would Gabby like? Nope.
(angelic music plays) Wow.
Not for Gabby, but if I were going to the dance, I'd definitely wear you.
Of course I can't go because I'll get in trouble with my dad.
I mean, it can't hurt to try it on.
("You and Me" by Sr.
Ortegon playing) I see that girl in the club I crush on her I feel to dance some cha cha You and me Are looking for someone to make us feel good (cell phone beeps) Gabby: Got a date to the dance, so I can't go with you guys.
See you there! Hey, hey, hey, hey Hey, hey, hey, hey (blow dryer whirring) Mm-hmm.
(kisses) Wesley, I know you're grumpy-wumpy, but that is no excuse to play with your food.
I'm sorry.
I just wish Gabby was here.
Who needs Gabby when you've got Rhonda? Rhonda takes care of you! Who's my big boy? - I am.
- Say it.
Who's my big boy? I'm your big boy.
Rhonda knows what'll cheer you up.
(mimicking car engine) Rhonda, it's, it's okay, I can, I can do that.
Attention, passengers, please fasten your seatbelts.
This red-eye ribeye is about to land! Oh man, that tiny bite was delightful! There's my happy guy! Choo-choo! (mimicking train engine) The Tater Express is making its final stop in Wesleyville! (laughs) Whoopsie-daisies! Looks like we had a cargo spill on the train tracks.
(baby cooing, laughing) Oh no! I've gone full-baby.
No more! What has gotten into you, Wessy? May I please be excused to go to the little boy's room The big boy's room The men's room? Wait.
I don't have to ask you! Rhonda: Wesley! - You're not my real mom! - Man: Oh! Man 2: Oh my! (club music playing) Yo, Havensburg Junior High! Gabby D's in the house with Joey P, so get ready to dance all night! (all cheering) Whoo! Wow, that was really cool.
Or was it "dope"? It was really cool and dope.
It was cool and dope.
Joey Panther, I'm so glad that you backflipped into my life.
Grand entrance? Check.
Now let's go do this before they make murdering a dance floor a crime.
Oh, hold up! I almost forgot this.
Oh! My bad! Are you okay? Ouchie! Wait, why didn't that hurt you? 'Cause I'm Joey Panther! It's all gravy! Uh "All gravy"? Wait a minute! (clangs) Open your shirt.
- In the hallway? - Do it.
I was gonna tell you on the dance floor, but surprise! Well, so much for the perfect dance.
You said only middle schoolers could come, so I built one.
I even researched all the things you're into so I'd seem even cooler! But if you don't like Joey Panther, I can build a different android, maybe with frosted tips or a briefcase, just whatever you're into! Fritz, stop.
You shouldn't have done this.
You can't go around tricking people! Come on, let's get you home.
So you don't like me? - It's not that, it's just - You don't like me! This is not all gravy! (grunts) (sobbing) Wait, Fritz! Great! Oh hey.
Nothing to see here! Just practicing our sick dance moves.
This one's called "The Boxer.
" Cool! Spread it around! So then I said, "I don't care if you're Abe Lincoln's ghost, get out of my bathroom!" - (thud) - Oh! (clangs) Don't move! (laughs) No time for hilarious jokes, Gabby! Gotta find Fritz.
(electronic dance music playing) You can do this, Wesley.
Now go tell Rhonda the deal is off.
You're not a baby.
You're not a baby.
You're not a baby.
All right, Wes, this doesn't have a lid, so you'll just have to be real careful.
Slow down, slugger! That's a lot of sugar.
Listen, I know we made a deal back in second grade, and I want to be a man of my word, but when I'm around you, I don't like who I am.
It's like I suddenly forget how to do things for myself.
Probably has something to do with my mother rocking me to sleep until I was 10 never mind.
What I'm trying to say is I-I it's see It's okay.
Use your words, Wessy.
No, Rhonda, that's just it.
I appreciate your but I don't I don't need your You can do it.
Spit it out.
I hate how you baby me and it's weird, and I don't want to be your date anymore! You did it! I am so proud of you! Also, how dare you! We had a deal! I gave you yogurt! Well, she didn't put me in a time-out, so I count that as a win.
Fritz? Fritz? Fritz? Fritz? Gabby? So you agreed to go to the dance with a random guy who turned out to be an android controlled by a little fuzzy alien? - Yup.
- Classic.
So now he's heartbroken and running around loose, and it's all my fault.
Seems like all of this could've been avoided if I know! I'm so sorry I bailed on you tonight.
I just had this image of how epic my first dance would be.
It's okay.
I'm sorry I tried to force you into joining me and Rhonda.
I get why you bailed.
Well, karma caught up to me, because now instead of enjoying my first dance, I'm not.
Hey, the night is young.
I'll go look for Fritz in the hallways, you look in the gym.
We'll find him.
Rhonda won't mind? Nah.
I broke it off with her, like a man.
Or a very confident child.
I think I may have unresolved issues with my mother.
Cool if we unpack that another time? Yep.
Fritz? Fritz? - Sky? - Oh.
Hi, Wesley! Are you dancing with Mr.
Bones from my science class? Yes.
Yes, I am.
I was not aware that was his name.
I've been calling him Riblet McSkullface.
My apologies, Mr.
I thought you weren't allowed to come.
I know! I just wanted to go to the dance so badly, so I snuck in.
But I'm keeping a safe, no-touch distance from other kids and enjoying it out here.
Well, you shouldn't have your first dance experience alone.
Care to join me? If you're okay ditching Mr.
I'd love to.
You look nice, too, Wesley.
(Fritz grunting) Ah! I've been looking everywhere for you! Why do you care where I am? You don't like me! Don't say that.
I like you.
I just really like popcorn, you know! Fritz, I'm so sorry your feelings got hurt.
But, buddy, you can't trick people like that.
I just wanted to go to the dance with you.
Who wouldn't? The thing is, I'm your babysitter, and I'm too old for you.
But someday you're going to find someone your own age who will appreciate how amazing you are.
You mean it? (chuckles) Totally! You really are a cool little dude.
I don't know anyone who can make robots.
That's pretty rad.
Thanks, Gabby.
I'm sorry I hypnotized you with my backflips.
It's all gravy.
(girl screams) Uh-oh.
I think someone just found Joey Panther.
Girl: Is he okay? Rhonda was just going to tinkle when she saw his legs.
- Wesley: Excuse me.
Excuse me.
- He's not moving.
It's okay, I know CPR.
Everybody back up and give me some space! Wesley: You heard her! More space or this young man's blood is on your hands! Don't you die on me! Okay, you're good.
Thanks, Gabby.
I'm cured.
I I guess I just danced too hard.
- This woman's a hero! - (all applauding) I guess I should just go home.
Maybe we can stay for one dance.
Or two.
Uh, Sky, what are you doing here? You know what, tell me later.
We got a dance to rock! I do it to the beat of my own drum I be dancing off the beat Da-da-dancing this for me I be dancing off the beat Da-da-dancing this for me Get dumb, get stupid get dumb, get stupid Get dumb, get stupid and show 'em how you do it Get dumb, get stupid get dumb, get stupid Get dumb, get stupid don't listen to their music Bye, you basic Bye bye, you basic Ain't got no time for your pettiness and hating I said bye, you basic Bye bye, you basic Principal Swift: Next time on Gabby Duran and the Unsittables Gabby, Mom's in the Dina Dumps! Gabby: She said there's no exciting news to report on in Havensburg so moving here was a mistake.
We just have to find some way to make really exciting news - so she'll wanna stay.
-(growling) There's a bit of an alien mold problem.
If you breathe any of it, it'll infect your brain.
(screams) (theme music playing) Man: Gorgeous!
