However, their date gets ruined when bad luck keeps happening. Meanwhile, Ally is getting suspicious about her relationship with Austin. On the other hand, Dez and Trish team up to film their favorite scene from the Zaliens movie series, hoping to win the contest so that they can then watch "Zaliens 8 My Brains" early at the premiere of it.

Episode Summary

After Ally successfully gets a "hole in one" in "Clarinet Golf", Austin decides they need to go on their first official date.

But when everything gets awkward during the date, they are unsure if they should stay together or break up. Trish gets them a gig to come up with a song to write for an upcoming cartoon film. While they try to come up with a song for the cartoon film "Butch & Bitey," Austin and Ally tell Trish and Dez how awkward they've been together since becoming a couple. When Austin and Ally try to write the song, they're too scared of hurting each other's feelings now that they're dating, so they compromise with the song ideas, but it ends up turning into a horrible song. When they realize how bad it is, the producer comes in and Austin and Ally end up fighting in front of the producer. Austin calls Ally "weak" and Ally calls him "childish." The producer doesn't produce their song but he gets goo all over him when he shakes a stuffed animal. When Austin and Ally get back to the sonic boom and in the practice room, they both tell each other how it was much easier to hang out when they weren't dating.

Ally suggests that they're not ready to be a couple just yet. They break up but they agree to remain friends and partners. They hug and they go back to the same cafe they went to for their first date, but just as friends.

Meanwhile, Trish and Dez discover that "Zaliens 8: My Brains" is coming out, and if they make the best movie of their favorite Zaliens scene, they can win four tickets to see it early, so the entire Team Austin can go. After shooting the scene, they submit it and they win the contest.

Goofs

  • Zaliens 8 was mentioned in this episode, but in Zaliens & Cloud Watchers, Dez mentioned how he already saw Zaliens 1-14. However Dez may have researched Zaliens and found out there was 14 movies ordered for the Zalien movie series. Thus, it should be Zaliens 15.
  • Since Austin is very famous, he could have been invited to the premiere, so Dez and Trish didn't really need to make a video, since Austin could have invited them to go with him.
  • Ally seemed excited for the Zaliens movie, despite hating scary movies.
