Goomer's mom comes to visit him and is unaware of his true profession, so Dice enlists the help of Sam and Cat to convince Goomer's mother that Goomer is a high school history teacher. Sam and Cat come up with a plan to pretend to be Goomer's students at Bots where Goomer and his mother are dining. Before Goomer's mom comes, Goomer reveals to Sam and Cat his real name when they ask what do they call his mother. While they are eating, Mrs. Merr reveals that Goomer was adopted and says how he was adopted. Then, Mrs. Merr wants Sam and Cat to record or take a picture of the class that Goomer teaches, but Cat accidentally says that Goomer's mom can watch the class herself while she's in town. Goomer is now even more upset and worried that his mom will find out he's not a real high school teacher and make him move back to Louisiana.
Confused about how to keep up the stint, Sam, Cat, Dice, and Goomer are back at the apartment where Cat comes up with the plan to convince her Hollywood Arts teacher, Sikowitz to let Goomer pretend to teach in his class during lunch. Then, Goomer and Sam come in the classroom and says Cat is making Dice look like a high school student, but when they arrive, Dice looks like a hippie. Then, later, when class starts, Mrs. Merr arrives, but Goomer's plan eventually self-destructs and he ends up admitting he isn't a teacher, but a Mixed Martial Arts fighter. His mom is upset and they get into an argument while walking in the alley way to Goomer's apartment. She threatens to take him back home. In the alley way, a group of thugs corner Sam, Cat, Dice, Goomer, and Mrs. Merr. The thugs then demand Mrs. Merr to give them her purse. Goomer shows off his Martial Arts skills and he manages to beat up the thugs just as the cops arrive. Goomer and his mother hug, making up. She leaves with a single male police officer and tells Goomer "whatever" when he asks if he can continue to stay in town and do MMA.
Sam: That's all right. We got this for ya.
Cat: Yep, just trust Valentine and Puckell.
Sam: It's Puckett.
Cat: You told me it was Puckell!
Sam: I said Puckett. I always say Puckett.
Goomer: I thought it was Pickle.
Sam: Who would name me Sam Pickle?
Cat: Mr. and Mrs. Pickle.
Sam: Bye! [walks away]
Sam: What do we call your mom?
Cat: Oh yeah, what's her last name?
Goomer: Same as mine, Merr. So just call her Mrs. Merr.
Sam: Wait, your last name is Merr?
Goomer: Yeah, my daddy was French so my first name is Geau and my last name is Merr. See, Geau Merr.
Cat: Merr. Like what those three wise guys brought baby Jesus.
Sikowitz: Cat, you're very late, class is almost over.
Sam: This is more important than class!
Sikowitz: More important than teaching young people backwards acting?
Sam: Oh no Cat, we gotta grab our heads and scream.
Sam & Cat: [screaming]
Dice: Okay, you guys wanna make jokes and not help me? I'll just leave then. [leaves]
Dice: [comes back in] All right, I'm back please help me.
Sam: Aww, come here you little weiner bun.
Cat: Why is it such a big deal that Goomer's mom is coming?
Dice: 'cause his mom hates fighting, and Goomer's never told her that he's a professional MMA fighter.
Sam: So? Why does he care what his mommy thinks?
Dice: You don't understand, Goomer's not gonna stand up to his mother. And if she finds out he's a fighter, she'll probably make him move back home to Louisiana.
Cat: I went to camp with a girl named Louise. She pooped in the lake. She tried to blame it on a fish. But I knew.
Sam: Oh kid, why are you getting so upset?
Dice: Because I'm Goomer's manager, and if he moves away, well, you know, I could lose a lot of money.
Sam: Hmmm, you sure it's just about the money?
Cat: Maybe you're scared of Goomer moving away because he's your best friend?
Dice: I don't, I just, she pooped in a lake?
Goomer: I bet I was a cute baby.
Mrs. Merr: I wish.
Sikowitz: What does this charity do?
Sam: It helps teachers grow hair.
Sikowitz: My classroom is yours.
Dice: What are we gonna do?
Cat: I have an idea!
Dice: Oh, let me guess, DOES IT INVOLVE MERMAIDS?!
Sam: And a magical boat?
Cat: Fine, just forget it.
Sam: We need to use this classroom.
Sikowitz: You strike me as pushy.
Cat: She can be pushy.
Sam: I can also be punchy and kicky.
Goomer: [looks at cards] There...there's nothing...they're all blank!
Sam: coughcoughTurn 'em over!
Dice: Like, turn 'em over, man!
Goomer: Ohhhhhh. Uh...let me see here...uh...first...oh no! These are written in a foreign language!
Cat: Ahem! They're upside down!
Goomer: I can't read a word!
Dice: They're upside down, man!
Goomer: Whatja say?
Sam: What crawdad factory would hire you?
Aunt Fergene: Turn the corn!
Aunt Fergene: Mhm, mhm, mhm. Now I have to pee!
Dice: I'm not helping!
