Episode Summary

When Rocky is convinced that CeCe's dad, J.J., is trying to "woo" CeCe's mom, Georgia, she tries to plan their relationship by relating to her book (Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen). CeCe doesn't believe it at first, but when she picks up her dad's coat, she finds a ring, leading both the girls to thinking he is going to propose to CeCe's mom. With the help of school librarian, Miss Burke, they come up with a plan bring the two to the "Shake It Up, Chicago!" set and remake CeCe's parents first date, which was at an Indian restaurant, with a "Bollywood" theme. CeCe, Rocky, and several dancers perform and Flynn acts as the host. After the dance, the girls find out that CeCe's dad isn't proposing to her mom, but instead to her dad's girlfriend, Cathy, who lives back in Florida. Later Rocky feels a little guilty for not knowing about CeCe's dad's girlfriend and apologizes to CeCe. Meanwhile, Ty and Deuce try to go on a double date at Crusty's, only to find out that Dina and Gina had a long lasting rivalry since they were younger. Later, Ty and Deuce confront them by saying that they are always competing against each other and they are annoyed by the fact they pulled them into the "competition". Soon, Dina and Gina realize their mistakes and become friends.
