Episode Summary

The episode opens with Dez and Trish in their gown in Marino High when Austin walks in with his cap and gown. He even shows off to a teacher. Trish thinks the cap was boring so she shows the cap decked out with cheetah prints and a touch of bling while Dez put a micro pod on top of his cap since he can’t really film everything in the ceremony. Then Ally walks in without a cap and gown, feeling ridiculous for not getting it because she had an overdue library book that she never returned in freshman year. Dez did a loser cam of her but she blocked the micro pod.

At the next scene, we see Trish in the classroom, sleeping above three books with Dez by her side. Dez yells to wake her up. Being awake, she asks if class ended. Dez answered that it ended three hours ago. Then he asked her if she wants to look at the yearbook layout. Chuck walks in with his catchphrase “Not so fast, Red”. Trish grabs the tablet and sees it's about everyone else with her in sleeping, so she unites Chuck and Dez to help her get more moments by taking fake pictures.

At the A&A Music Factory,Austin was on stage when Ally walks in with a book.Austin walks down and asked what was the book that she was holding and she answered that it was a planner that she had in freshman year.
