#MotorcycleMystery[3] is the 12th episode of Sam & Cat.

Plot

The episode begins with Sam getting all the pink paint off her motorcycle. Dice and Goomer come to take Sam to a fighting match but Cat wants to stay home to study for a huge test due on Monday. Dice gives Cat a drink called Pon-Thwang to help her focus and have a better memory.

When they get home, they find Cat with her hair partially dyed blue, asleep, and handcuffed to a small, angry foreign man. Sam’s motorcycle is also gone. Sam wakes Cat up and it turns out that this happened because she drank the whole Pon-Thwang bottle when she was only supposed to put a teaspoon of it into a glass of water. Cat also doesn't know what happened. Cat finds a photo on her phone showing herself and Nona with their hair dyed blue in Elderly Acres and the picture was taken that day. Sam frees Cat and handcuffs the foreign man to the doorknob.

They go to Elderly Acres where everyone’s hair is dyed an abnormal color. Nona tells them that Cat came at around 1:00 all jittery, got her hair dyed blue, and wanted to go to the fight Sam, Dice, and Goomer went to in Nona’s car. Nona says her car is at the shop and Cat wants to go to the fight on Sam’s motorcycle. An elderly man says that he can drive a motorcycle but wants to stop at Bots for a burger first. Sam threatens to kill Cat if she doesn't get her motorcycle back.

The two go to Bots where Tandy shows them the security cameras in the parking lot and the front door. The elderly man and Cat go to Bots and there they run into John Zakappa. To get revenge on Sam, John steals Sam’s motorcycle. Cat sees him and begins to attack John, also successfully. John leaves on the motorcycle but Cat is able to capture John’s friend who is the small, foreign man. Cat steals a cop's handcuffs, handcuffs herself to the foreign man (whose name is Hector), and apparently went home and fell asleep.

Dice tells John to be there at 11:00. They duct tape Hector’s mouth closed, handcuff him, and put him on a wagon. John comes and returns Sam’s motorcycle. Sam then wrestles John to the ground, and has Cat, Dice, and Goomer bring Hector and the motorcycle back home. That night, Hector reads Sam and Cat a book called The Pudgy Monkey.
