Gunther and Tinka want Rocky and CeCe to come visit their home and celebrate Vatalihootsit Day, a holiday from their country, with them. CeCe had already made plans for them to go to a Katy Perry concert. In the end, CeCe and Rocky want to stay but Vatalihootsit Day was over and Gunther and Tinka kick them out. Meanwhile, Ty has a juice commercial audition and doesn't feel happy with the result. Instead, Flynn is offered a chance to do a commercial and he doesn't really like the result of it.

Episode Summary

The episode begins with the JabbawockeeZ entering the studio and performing. After the performance, CeCe tries to take off one of their masks, while Gunther and Tinka go up to Rocky and invite the girls to come to their apartment and celebrate Vatalihootsit day, a special holiday from their native country. Rocky agrees, but just because everyone thinks she is a sidekick for CeCe. But then CeCe announces she got the two concert tickets to Katy Perry on Saturday the day of Vatalihootsit day. So they agree that they will go to Gunther and Tinka's house for a bit then go to the concert. When they arrive they find out Vatalihootsit day is a day where you break bread with your enemies. So they are nice to each other for a while. CeCe and Rocky miss the concert because they feel sorry for Gunther and Tinka and think they really want to be friends with them. Then when the bell sounds off, Vatalihootsit is over and they go back to hating each other again.
