#BabysittingCommercial[3] is the 10th episode of Sam & Cat.

Plot

Cat tells Sam to put some potato chips out for their guests. Sam just dumps it on the table. Dice runs in with his dog, Opee. Dice then asks Cat what she's making. Cat is mixing water and mustard to make lemonade. Nona runs in. She says that Cat just texted her: "Come over right now! I'M DYING!" Cat says that she was dying with anticipation, not really dying. Sam says that their babysitting commercial is about to air during Toilet Wars. Nona and Cat sit down and watch. Cat offers Nona some of her "mustard-ade," but when Nona drinks it, she gags, asking if it came out of a horse. Toilet Wars goes to commercial and their commercial airs.

The next day, they babysit Mr. Nowak's plant. Cat says that it's Sam's turn to water it but all Sam does is pour her soda all over the plant. Cat says that she can't give a plant soda because the plant might have "dia-booties." Sam says that it's pronounced diabetes, but Cat says that she thought it was a butt disease. Sam begins to correct Cat, but then sarcastically agrees with her. Dice comes in with Opee. Then, a rich and spoiled family comes, claiming that Opee belongs to them and that his name was Cornelius. They protest. The family says that they lost Cornelius six months ago and Dice got Opee six months ago. The family's daughter, Alexa Biggly, is part of the Winchester Dog Dancing Contest and they always win the competition, using Cornelius. They then put Cornelius/Opee in the middle of the room and the six goes on two sides of the room. Opee runs toward Sam, Cat, and Dice instead of the spoiled family. The dad says that they'll return in one day with a court order and a policeman. They leave. Cat says that at least the family saw their commercial.

Sam, Cat, and Dice go to Bots. Dice brings Opee but it is not allowed. Tandy comes and confronts them but Sam, Cat, and Dice say that Opee's their French cousin with a sickness called "Furbalitis." Believe it or not, Tandy buys this. Cat spots an elderly woman who just fell down and can't get up. They then order their food. Sam and Cat start looking for a dog that looks exactly like Opee. They find one at the Burbank Animal Center, but they have "to talk to a sweaty topless man to get him." The topless man says that the dog is dangerous if he's picked up. The next day, Dice feeds Opee some lasagna. Dice gets Opee and puts him in the bedroom. The family returns the next day. Sam and Cat give them the clone and they think that is Opee. They reveal that the dog dancing competition is that night and they tell them that they can watch it on TV. Cat and Dice go get Opee so that he can finish his lasagna but Sam quickly scarfs down the lasagna before they get back. Sam, Cat, and Dice watch the competition and sure enough, the dog doesn't participate. When Alexa is supposed to lift up the dog in the dance, the dog starts attacking her. Sam turns it to Toilet Wars.

Cat: Wait! I remember something I learned in Sunday school.
Sam: Ugh!
Cat: There were these two ladies, and they both wanted the same baby, so King Solomon said, "We shall cut this baby in half."
Sam: We're not cutting the dog in half.
Dice: That's an awful idea.
Cat: Yeah, I guess nobody wants the butt half of a dog.
Sam: Especially if he's got dia-booties.


Cat: Well hey! At least they saw our commercial.


Cat: You can't pour sugary soda in the plant! What if it's got dia-booties?
Sam: Betes.
Cat: I thought it was a disease that affected your butt.
Sam: [sarcastically] Yes, it's the disease of the butt.


Cat: See? He likes Dice!
Mrs. Biggly: Licking means nothing!


Tandy: [scans Opee]
Sam: Yeah?
Tandy: No animals are allowed in this restaurant!
Sam: Animal?!
Cat: How dare you!
Tandy: [nervously] I... I..
Sam: This happens to be our cousin, Opee.
Dice: He's foreign.
Tandy: But he is small, and covered with fur!
Sam: That's because he happens to have a disease called... furball-itis.
Tandy: Oh, no!
Cat: We brought him to America for treatment.
Tandy: I am so sorry! Welcome to our land! I will now wave, and scoot away. [waves and scoots away]


Sam: Umm... How would you to see me do a really neat magic trick with this bottle?
Mr. Biggly: Are you threatening my wife!?
Sam: Oh no, I'm threatening all three of you!
