Okay, this is the scariest thing I've seen all day.

"Zaliens & Cloud Watchers" is the fourth episode in Season 1 of Austin & Ally. It first aired on January 8, 2012 to 2.99 million viewers.[1]


After Ally writes a song that Austin doesn't think sounds like him, they decide to hang out more with each other in order to learn what do they do for fun. When things get out of hand they realize that they are opposites but that's what makes things work perfectly. Meanwhile, Trish and Dez realize they have more in common than they thought.

Episode Summary

The episode begins with Austin and Dez playing the xylophone with metal spatulas while hamburgers are cooking on the keys. Ally comes in and announces she finished the song and questioned what they were doing, to which Dez replied with Xylo-Grilling. Austin claims it is a way to combine Austin's music skills with Dez's cooking skills.



holds an open hamburger bun and Dez flips a raw hamburger backward, missing the bun and causing it to stick to the window. Dez then scrapes the burger off the window and offers it to Ally. Trish enters, dressed as a giant slice of cheese with a new job, Cheese Out of My League. Ally diverts her attention back to Austin and tells him to listen to the song she finished. Austin says he loves and Ally cheers before walking away. As Ally leaves, Austin tells Dez and Trish that he actually hated it. Dez scoops some of his drum-chili onto his burger. When Austin clarifies he didn't like the song, Dez scoops some of his drum-chili onto the mp3, wondering if it will help. Trish is working at Cheese Out Of My League, while Austin and Dez are playing a game of "Go Fish", but with cheese.

Ally writes about what she thinks is the best song she ever wrote about Austin. He hears the song and hates it because it doesn't describe him at all. After a webcast, Austin tells Ally that he doesn't like the song. They decide they need to get to know each other better, so they do activities that each other thinks is fun. First, Ally takes Austin with her to her "Cloud Watching Club," but Austin thinks it's boring. He then takes Ally to a horror movie convention which she thinks is boring. Meanwhile, Dez and Trish watch Zaliens 3, a horror movie, and discover that they share some things in common. Ally then takes Austin to the mall pond, and tells him that her inspiration for writing songs comes from Pickles the Goose but then they have to take him away when the pond is turning into a new parking lot.
