Hey, why is there soup all over the floor in the dining room? Uh, 'cause of your stomping.
- Stepping.
- Oh, she knows what that is.
- Don't you, Rae? - I know nothing of what you think I might know something about.
Now I have to know.
Well, um, your mother, she used to step.
No, I didn't.
Never happened.
Oh, come on.
Don't listen to her.
She was a great stepper.
Remember, you were all like like One, two three.
Uh, uh, uh, uh.
- Uh, uh, uh, uh, uh.
Uh! - I never did I never did anything - of the sort, Chels.
- What? Mom, this is so cool that I'm following in your foot "step.
" You get it? Poor baby.
She gets her sense of humor from her daddy.
Don't change the subject.
I'm not gonna let you side "step" this one.
Okay, this has to stop right now.
Listen, baby girl, it was a long time ago.
I stepped, I stopped, end of story.
Hey, Mom, can I get a 7:30 wake-up call tomorrow? Yes, Booker.
Hey, would you like me to also warm your slippers too? That'd be nice.
Would you? No.
Just the wake-up call then.
He needs a wake-up call, 'cause he must be dreaming! Okay.
This is an alarm clock.
All right? If you want to wake up at 7:30, wake yourself up then your sister, then me.
What about my mom? Why does she need a wake-up call? - She ain't got no job.
- I heard that, Rae! I was hoping you would, Chels! Good night, boys.
Wow! You could land a plane with that light.
There is no way I'm gonna be able to sleep.
What about you, Booker? Booker? This pancake shaped like Abe Lincoln with a whipped cream beard and a chocolate hat is delicious.
Why are you staring at me? Because that clock kept me up all night, and I needed something to do.
Well, it's just a little weird.
Not as weird as what you were saying in your sleep.
Something about you eating a pancake shaped like Abe Lincoln with a whipped cream beard and a chocolate hat.
Abe Lincoln pancakes? I don't think that's a thing.
- Whoa! - Whoa! It is a thing! They're good, huh? Booker, you know what this means? Yeah.
I totally had a sleep vision.
This is so cool.
It's like my superpower has a superpower.
This is awesome.
Oh, tonight, you have to stay up all night to see what I say next.
Starting to sound less awesome.
I told y'all to wake me up.
We tried.
You used my head as a snooze button.
That means come back in eight minutes.
You all came here today with a dream of one day being a Chili Stepper.
But do you really have what it takes? Do you? I think I'm a little nervous.
I think I'm a lot nervous.
I think I'm getting a phone call.
Hello? You will now attempt to perform our routine.
One misstep and you're out! Good luck, everyone.
And five, six, seven, eight! Misstep.
You're out! Misstep.
Bye now! Misstep.
Toodles! Misstep.
See ya! Congrats, ladies.
You both have what it takes to be a Chili Stepper.
- That's awesome! - Whoa! Thank you! Unfortunately, we only have room for one of you, but since you're friends, we'll let you decide.
Take your time.
- Okay.
- Time's up.
- You should take the spot, Nia.
- No, you.
- No, you.
- No, you.
- No, you.
- No, you.
- No, you.
- No, you.
- No, you.
- No, you.
What is with all the "no, you"? I'll talk to you later, Tess.
Mom, can I ask you a question? Yeah, well, you just did, sweetie.
Have a good night.
Uh Just playing.
What do you want? Well, Tess and I crushed it at the auditions today.
- Yes! Baxters! - Yes.
But the Chili Steppers only have one spot, and they're making us decide who's gonna take it.
What do I do? - That's hard.
- Yeah.
Umm Tess is your bestie, right? So there's really only one thing you can do You gotta be there for her when you take that spot.
- Mom.
- What? I'm ser Okay, okay, okay.
You just have to ask yourself, what do you really want? Well, I know what I don't want To step without Tess.
We do everything together.
And when we step, we're so in sync, it's like we're one person.
Well, it sounds like you know exactly what you want.
Isn't there any other team that has room for the both of you? Not yet.
Are you crazy? We can't form our own step team.
Why not? Principal Wentworth said if we form a team, we can challenge the Chili Steppers to a step-off to see who represents our school in the regionals.
But we don't have a team.
Where are we gonna find other steppers? Hey, show me that again.
Look at that girl in the gym in the purple hat.
Dang, she can step.
- Who can step? - What are you watching? Just a video of me having a sleep vision last night.
Whoa, whoa, whoa.
This is huge.
Well, it's just another little psychic power I have and you don't.
Don't care about that.
Do care that there's someone in the gym - who can step.
- Yeah.
Look at Taylor step.
This was your vision.
My vision was me saying "Look at that girl in the gym in the purple hat.
Dang, she can step.
" That was my vision! My vision was me saying what my vision was.
Aaah! Oh, I was just This isn't the library.
Oh, so, ladies, have you decided which one of you is gonna have the honor of calling yourself a Chili? Yeah.
We're forming our own team and challenging you to a step-off.
Really? And who's gonna be on this team of yours? Well, for starters, Taylor.
Taylor what? Taylor, you're gonna be on our new step team.
Me? On your step team? My mom is calling.
Again! Looks like your new team is as real as her phone.
Ha-ha! Joke's on you! Her phone is fake.
What? Oh.
Welcome to the study group.
Thanks so much for including me.
What are we going to study first? Math? American history? I was thinking step.
- Ha! - Ha! - Ha! - Ha! - Ha! - Ha! Hey, you guys tricked me.
Only because when we asked you to be on the team, you ran away.
Four times.
- Five.
- Please, Taylor? - We've seen you step.
- You're amazing.
But I get too nervous in front of people.
Everyone's watching me.
No one's watching you.
Stop watching her.
And besides, when we perform, no one will be watching you.
They'll be watching us.
- We'll be like a team.
- Yeah.
I've always wanted to be part of a team.
It looks like fun.
- Well, then welcome to the fun.
- Yeah.
- Whoo! - This is This is perfect.
Now, all we have to find is a coach.
Someone with experience.
Someone who really knows how to step.
I have snacks! Why y'all staring at me? You look lovely today, Mom.
Thank you.
I am, uh, wearing my waist trainer today.
This doesn't look like a study group.
We need you to be our step coach.
Hey, baby, remember when I told you I would do anything for you? - Yeah.
- Yeah, I lied.
Whoa! Mom.
Why do you hate stepping so much? Yeah.
Who hurt you, Miss B? Fine.
I'll tell you.
- I'm cursed.
- Cursed? Yes.
Cursed! I used to be on a step team when I was in college and we were right there at Nationals, and we were just about to win the championship when despite being in perfect sync I mean, the judges were loving us.
And I was looking fly until a fly landed on me.
I tried to swat it away, but it was personal to him.
Oh! Mom you're not cursed.
You just had a fly on your nose.
No, that fly, it was a winged demon! Are you really gonna let that fly win? Yes.
Yes, I am.
Well, sweetheart, listen.
I will - I'll do you this.
- Mm-hmm.
All right.
I won't coach your team, but I will make your team costumes for you.
- Thank you, Mom.
- Yup, no worries.
Tess and I will figure out the coaching thing.
- Yeah.
- Let's go.
Hello, ladies.
Goodbye, ladies.
Come on, buddy.
Let's go wash that rejection down with a little chocolate milk.
All right, girls.
Let's start off with some basic steps to get us all in sync.
What is that? It's a whistle.
The coach gets a whistle.
- And five, six, seven - How come you're the coach? 'Cause I have the whistle.
And five, six, seven I know you have the whistle and everything, but how come you have the whistle and everything? I just thought since I came up with most of our routine, I'd be in charge.
You didn't come up with all of it.
I came up with all the swag moves.
Well, I came up with all the precision and structure.
Which is way more important to the judges.
Well, it's way more fun to watch this than looking like a robot "Beep boop bop.
" Now, I'm a sleeping judge.
The only reason the judges would be asleep is because they're so unimpressed by all your sloppy moves.
You dropped this.
- I'll take it.
- I'll take it.
Hi, Mom.
You want me to come home? And drop the whistle? Okay.
No! Booker, I really need someone to talk to.
I usually talk to Tess when I have a problem, but now she's the problem.
I just don't get why she won't let me coach? She totally ruined practice tonight.
I just wish the Chilis had two spots.
Maybe I should just be the better friend and let Tess coach the team.
What do you think, Booker? Think about what? He was in the bathroom.
And you just let me keep talking? I can't sleep.
I'm bored.
So what happens next? - Oh, sorry.
- No worries.
- Hey, Tess.
- Hey, uh what are you doing at the Chilis' practice? What are you doing at the Chilis' practice? I asked you first.
Well, um I was thinking after yesterday, and I thought I'd be a good friend and let you coach our team.
You know, I just step away And step into that open spot in the Chilis? Well, I, uh I You know last time I checked, good friends don't do each other like that.
Oh, really? Then why don't you answer my question: What are you doing here? Oh, well - I, uh - Liar! You didn't even let me lie! You came here to take that spot on the Chilis too.
What? You think you're the only one who can be a good friend? No, but I'm a faster friend.
- I want to be a Chili! - I want to be a Chili! Yeah, um, about that last spot Sorry, ladies, it's been filled.
By who? Hi, Nia.
Hi, Tess.
- Taylor? - Taylor? Sorry, but all your fighting was just so awkward.
Kind of like now.
Way to go.
See what you trying to be a good friend did? Would you like it better if we weren't friends at all? - Maybe I would.
- Maybe I would too, 'cause I don't need a friend like you.
Sorry to bother you in the bathroom, Booker, but Tess and I got in a really bad fight, and I said something but I think I went way too far.
Now I don't know what to do.
Booker? I can't tell you what to do about Tess, but I can tell you Do not go in there.
The lottery jackpot is up to ten million.
Finally, another sleep vision.
I hope it's the winning lottery numbers.
Man, there's no way Nia and Tess are gonna win the step-off now.
Ugh, I stayed up for this? I really said Nia and Tess are gonna lose? Wow.
I guess the good news is they figure out how to step together.
Just in time to lose, blame each other, and ruin their friendship for good.
Oh, man, this is terrible.
How are you gonna tell her? Me? It was your sleep vision.
You tell her.
- No, you.
- No, you.
- No, you.
- No, you.
- No, you.
- No, you.
Now what are you two "no, you'ing" about? Booker had a sleep vision.
You get sleep visions? Only for the past few nights.
Oh, I used to get the best sleep visions.
But then again they never came true, so I guess you can just call them broken dreams.
- Not about you, Mom.
- It's always about me, Booker.
So what was I doing in your vision? No.
It was Tess and Nia.
They're fighting and now they're gonna lose the step competition.
And we're trying to decide who should tell her.
Since you're the mom, you should tell her.
Oh, well, I am the mom, and I am telling you that you should tell her.
- No, you.
- No, you.
- No, you.
- No, you.
Wait a second.
How did I get involved with the "no, you'ing"? Listen, I will tell her, okay.
I just I just have to figure out a way they can work together so they won't lose, you know? Together.
Mom, is this really necessary? Yes, it is, Nia.
Yes, it is.
Because you two need to learn to work together again.
And Ooh.
Ooh! One of y'all need to take a shower 'cause it is rank up in here.
- That's her.
- That's her.
Oh, no, Rae, that's that's you.
You're standing in a pile of fresh organic horse-made fertilizer.
- You mean poop? - There it is.
Listen, stepping is about precision.
- See? - It is also about swag.
- See? - But if you do not have both, they you are not able to win.
And you know what, we need to get you two back in sync.
- We can't step in this thing.
- Yeah.
Who said anything about steppin'? Y'all are gonna be planting pea pods.
Actually no, Rae.
They'll be planting baby zucchini.
But the whole "pea in a pod" thing, that works better for the lesson.
All right, now get over here and start planting.
Your phone is ringing.
It's in your side pocket.
Get it! - No, you get it.
- No, you get it.
- No, you.
- I will get it! Watch me get it! I will get it.
I will get it! When does this start working? Give me Give me the phone.
Oh, hey, Nia.
And Tess? Thought you two weren't speaking to each other.
What do you want, Zeena? We realized it was kinda unfair to only add one new Chili, so we decided to add a few more steppers.
You want us to be on your team now? No, we wanted all your teammates, and we got 'em.
So you probably don't even need to show up tonight.
- This is your fault.
- This is your fault.
Well, it's probably for the best anyway.
I had a vision you guys were gonna lose.
Red Hot Chili Steppers! - Hey! Hey! - Hey! Hey! - Hey! Hey! - Hey! Hey! Thank you! And since it looks like no other teams showed up, I guess we win.
You guessed wrong.
Step off the stage.
Stepping is about precision.
Hey, hey! Move away.
Stepping is about swag.
Hey! Hey! Precision.
- Hey! - Swag.
Hey, hey, hey, hey, yeah, hey.
Hey, hey! Hey.
But the best step routines have both.
Are you ready for a little Swagcision? Yes! Hey, your plan worked.
Let's do this! Five, six, seven, eight! Hey! - Hey! - Hey! Hey! Get off the stage.
You're not cursin' my baby! - No! - Hey! Hey.
- Hey.
- Hey.
No, no, no.
My baby.
No! My baby! My baby.
There's no way Nia and Tess are gonna win the step-off now.
And there's the sleep vision.
You guys, this is all my fault.
That winged demon, it's trying to curse you.
Or it was just a regular fly that was attracted to the poop that's still on your shoe and on their onesie.
- That makes more sense.
- Yeah, it does.
Yeah, it's nasty, but it makes more sense.
Nice try, girls, but your "swagcision" was a bad de-cision.
What's so funny? She stepped in your poop.
Hey! Get away from me, you winged demon! You cursed her, Miss B.
Anything for my baby and her bestie.
I'm just sorry that you guys didn't win.
I don't know.
I feel like I won.
Yeah, me too.
The winning lottery numbers for the $10 million jackpot are 3, 4, 19, 26, Levi, I think I just had a sleep vision.
What did I say? Oh, well.
It's probably nothing important.
