Manny discovers that her University demo reel is a sex tape that Jay made. Meanwhile, Peter and Darcy don't have quite a fun time at Brat Camp.
After Manny discovers that her University demo reel is a sex tape that Jay made, her future is holding on by a thread. By the time Jay catches up to her with the correct DVD, it's too late. Manny's already bombed her audition for Smithdale Drama School, so she throws their fake engagement ring on the floor and tells Jay to get out of her life for good. While everyone enjoys their road trip adventure, Jay hatches an awesome plan to get Manny into her program and to get back into her heart. In order to get Manny another audition, he pretends he is her agent and gives the judge a foot massage. After doing many other things, Jay finally gets another audition for Manny. Meanwhile, at a party Manny is hooking up with a guy. Later, Manny aces the audition and the group meets up at the Purple Dragon concert. At the concert, the group waits to see who the surprise guest singer is. The guest singer is revealed to be Craig Manning, who has become famous. He gives a shout-out to Ashley. Ashley then tells a puzzled Jimmy that after they broke-up, Craig asked for her to go on tour with him and she said yes. She goes on stage and the two sing the song: "My Window". During the song, Manny and Jay decide their engagement is real.
Meanwhile, Peter and Darcy quickly discover that it's anything but fun and games at Brat Camp. Through hard lessons of discipline, and rigorous self-respect building exercises, Darcy discovers an inner strength she never knew she had. Darcy is finally happy again.
