Emma and Zuri plan a romantic, mystery-filled fourth "first date" for Jessie and Tony (Jessie's second prom) but as usual, everything goes wrong. Meanwhile, Ravi's helicopter gets stuck in a teacup on a billboard sign. He goes and get it, gets stuck in the teacup; Luke comes, almost gets Ravi out but then his shoes slip and he gets stuck in the teacup; Bertram comes, gets stuck in a teacup. So, Jessie and Tony's date gets interrupted and they come. Jessie and Tony get Ravi and Luke out of the cup but they fall in when trying to get Bertram out. Eventually, they are alone in the teacup where Tony finally kisses Jessie and they both dance to the music that Emma and Zuri are playing on Emma's phone.
