CeCe and Rocky go to a therapist to get advice on their expiring friendship, Flynn and Ty agree to take a Toy testing job and Gunther and Tinka try being nice to people, starting with Deuce.

Episode Summary

When Gary starts seeing the praises of his new therapist, Dr. Pepper, CeCe signs up herself and Rocky for a few sessions in order to kiss up. At their appointment, the girls discover they may have more issues with each other than they thought. Meanwhile, Flynn buys a toy dinosaur that doesn’t work well. When Ty takes him to complain about it, they both get hired at the toy company to test out new toys. Also Gunther and Tinka decide to try and be nice to someone and they pick Deuce. Near the end of the episode there's a flashback with a pre-school aged Rocky and CeCe. There we see when they first met each other. A young Gunther and Tinka are also in the flashback since they've been foreign exchange students since the first grade.

Memorable Quotes

Rocky: [about the pictures] A cloud, no a cotton ball, no a rabbit backing up! I did not know that there was going to be a test! Are you writing down what I just said, because there's nothing wrong with me, okay, I'm totally normal-why aren't you writing that down?
Gunther: [to Gary] Does she make you pay extra because you're boring?
Gary: [to Gunther and Tinka] You know, you two are kinda mean. Maybe that's why nobody likes you.
Dr Pepper: Hello girls, I'm Dr Pepper

CeCe: Dr Pepper? That's like the...
Dr Pepper: No jokes! I've heard them all before and it just brings up bad childhood memories. So, why have you come to see me?
Rocky: Well actually I don't even know why we're here.

CeCe: What she means is, why are any of us here?
Flynn: [to his toy dinosaur] Come on, do something!

Ty: What's wrong, your Tyrannosaurus wrecked? [laughs]
Flynn: It's not funny, the Megasaurus 5000's a piece of garbage!

Ty: Why don't you tell someone who cares?
CeCe: My turn [falls backwards]

Rocky: I'm sorry CeCe that was just an accident.
Dr Pepper: There are no accidents!
Rocky: No I was just distracted.
Dr Pepper: By you're true feelings?
Rocky: No she was seperated.
Dr Pepper: What are you hiding?
Rocky: [getting more angry] Nothing!
Dr Pepper: Why are you so angry?
Rocky: [yells] I'm not!
Dr Pepper: Then why are you here?

CeCe: Ya think!
[Rocky and CeCe bang heads during rehearsal]

Rocky: Okay can we take a five?
CeCe: You were supposed to snake left.
Rocky: No you were supposed to snake right.

CeCe: I did snake right, you snaked, wrong!
Gunther: [pulls Tinka away from Rocky and CeCe] Tinka, we promised we only had to be nice to Deuce.
CeCe: Don't worry Gary, we're working with your therapist and she will get us right back on track.

[Gary walks away]
CeCe: [to Rocky, back turned opposite to her] Yeah, like we'd ever really go back to that therapist.
Rocky: Actually I booked us a second appointment.
CeCe: [turns to Rocky] And you didnt even ask me, who do you think you are?!

Rocky: Humm let's see...[points to CeCe and walks off] you!
Flynn (To Ty): I don't like your attitude, you're fired.
Ty: Big talk from someone who can't take the bus alone.
