Sav works hard, but his father still says no to everything cool, fun, or on a school night. Will concert tickets and Mr. Bhandari's shiny new truck tempt Sav to start pushing the boundaries? Jenna feels the pressure to fit into her Power Squad uniform, and a lonely Fiona makes an unconventional new friend.
Sav wins four tickets and backstage passes to the reunion concert of a band called Dead Hand. He asks his dad if he can go, but his dad says he can't since the concert is on a Monday night. The next day at school, Holly J. asks Sav if he has any ideas on how to raise money for student council. He tells her about the tickets that are now no use to him and she tells Sav that they should hold a 'Hands on a Car Body'. He just needs to get to his dad's permission to use his new truck.
His dad, much to Sav's surprise, agrees. The contest's last three contestants are Eli, Adam, and Wesley. Eli gets Wesley out by pouring water out of a bottle, making Wesley need to go to the bathroom. Adam and Eli decide to split the four tickets. Sav asks them to help him unload the truck. They do and Adam falls and smashes the amp into the tail light of the truck.
Sav gets mad, but Eli and Adam give up their extra tickets so Sav can sell them for money for the tail light. Sav sells the extra ticket to Bianca for $200. Eli puts the tail light in for free, since he's good with cars.
They ask Sav to see if he can take his dad's truck to the concert, because they have no other ride. His dad says he can go, but he then tells his dad that the tail light got smashed and then says that he isn't allowed to go to the concert. Later, he is at the Dot with Adam and Eli; he plans to 'borrow' the car to go to the concert.
Jenna is worried about her weight for a Power Squad calendar shoot when her uniform becomes a little too tight. Every compliment from K.C. turns into an insult about her weight in her eyes. Bianca talks about diet pills which gives Jenna a little interest. Jenna goes to her asking her if she has an diet pills. Jenna explains she needs it for a "friend" who is very desperate. Bianca says she could snatch some from her aunt and they have a deal.
Fiona's mom has left town; meanwhile, Fiona needs to start seeing her therapist. She makes plans to spend time with Holly J., but Holly J.'s schedule is too busy to spend any time with Fiona. She's feeling so lonely that, when she's walking down the sidewalk, she sees a pig in the window and decides to get it.
