The episode begins with Jennette McCurdy and Ariana Grande breaking the fourth wall by talking to the camera and showing a few scenes from #TheBritBrats. They, however, don't break character, shown by Cat's mispronunciation of the word previously.
A mother comes to pick up her two sons and pays Sam and Cat $60, which Sam keeps. A few minutes later, Gwen and Ruby come to Apartment 22, much to Cat's dismay. Sam opens the door instead and lets Gwen and Ruby inside the apartment. Gwen and Ruby say how much they felt sorry for conning Cat and Dice previously. Gwen and Ruby give Cat a can of Bibble, Sam a vibrating motorcycle helmet, and a British toilet plunger. They then leave.
That night, Sam, Cat, Dice, and Goomer are watching a game show called Get Outta the Pool. While they are watching it, Gwen and Ruby sneak into Sam and Cat’s bedroom. They begin looking for the Bibble can that they gave Cat. Gwen finds it behind a sign that says “Do not look behind this sign.” Gwen then takes some of the Bibble and put it on Sam’s bed. They leave with the can so that it will look like Sam ate Cat’s Bibble. Cat believes this and yells at Sam. Gwen and Ruby watch through the window happily. That night, Gwen paints Sam’s motorcycle pink and Ruby paints Cat’s hand pink so that it will make it look like Cat painted Sam’s motorcycle pink for revenge.
Sam believes this and both of them argue and fight. To cool herself off, Sam goes to Punchy's gym with Dice and Goomer while Cat goes to Bots with Nona. Sam and Cat both explain what happened to their respective companions. While in Punchy's, Goomer says Gwen and Ruby did it so Sam and Cat would fight. Sam and Dice admire Goomer's brilliance, but then he says a dumb statement. Nona says the same thing as Goomer. Sam and Cat go home and reunite. Sam then plans revenge on Gwen and Ruby by making them believe they hate each other even more.
Gwen and Ruby then are passing by Sam and Cat's apartment when they hear Sam and Cat fighting. They hear a thud and go inside to find Sam with Cat, who supposedly has the fancy toilet plunger that Gwen and Ruby gave them in Cat's head. Sam tries to convince Gwen and Ruby to help her hide Cat's body before the cops show up, but Gwen and Ruby refuse. Gwen and Ruby feel bad for planning to sabotage Sam and Cat's friendship and blame each other. Ruby says she is going to call Uncle Hubbins to tell him that Gwen fooled Sam and Cat into hating each other. Gwen and Ruby begin to fight, which Sam and Cat happily watch. Cat suggests that they should call Uncle Hubbins what Gwen and Ruby did, which Sam agrees upon. They then walk towards the phone in slow motion.
Sam: [enters her and Cat's room] What's your deal?
Cat: Call 991!
Cat: Somebody snatched my bibble! [cries, then lies down on the floor]
Cat: It's not a joke! My bibble is gone!
Sam: Well, where is it?
Cat: They wanted makeovers.
Sam: So we made that one into a zombie.
Kid in a zombie costume: Brrrrraaaaaiiiinnnssss!
Sam: And he's a...
Kid in box costume: I'm a box!!
Cat: [stares angrily at Sam]
Cat: You stole my bibble!
Sam: No, I didn't!
Cat: Oh, yeah? Then why are these little bibble bits all around your pillow? [starts eating them, then spits] Oh god! That was a toenail!
Goomer: Oh, I get it. It's funny 'cause he's drowning.
TV Announcer: You know, it's funny, 'cause he's drowning.
Tandy: Hello! You pressed your call button many times. Can I help you?
Nona: Yes, my coffee's a little cold.
Tandy: Oh no!
Nona: So could I get another cup? [Tandy smacks the cup of coffee out of her hand. It splatters all over another customer.]
Tandy: How are your bowls of soup?
Cat // Nona: Fine! // Perfect!
Sam: And who took Cat's bibble?
Sam: It was in a can this big!
Dice: Giant mice?
Cat: [holds up a sign that says "I am not speaking to you."]
Sam: One, I don't care. Two, I didn't take your bibble.
Cat: Yes, you did!
Sam: I thought you weren't speaking to me. [leaves the room]
Cat: [realizes what she did and puts her hand on her forehead]
Goomer: Maybe you shouldn't have taken her bibble.
Sam: You can accuse me of a lot of things, but I never touched Cat's bibble!
Goomer: [puts coin in parking meter] We're good for an hour.
Cat: [hugs Sam]
Sam: You can do this for two more seconds. One.. Two.. [slightly pats Cat's back] Ding!!
Cat: Oh, yeah? You're not the only one who can exit angrily! But I better get a sweater first because it's kind of chilly out here... [goes back inside]
Gwen: [appears out of bushes with Ruby] See, Ruby? Now Sam and Cat hate each other!
Ruby: We've done it.
Ruby: Shall we high-five?
Gwen: No! In America, the cool kids now celebrate with a fist bump. [fist bumps with Ruby]
