Overview

7.
When Dez and Trish decide to make a movie about Austin and Ally, they bring up unknown issues in Austin & Ally’s musical partnership that strain the duo’s current friendship.Trish and Dez are left to bring Austin and Ally back together as a team while still finishing their movie. [2]

Episode Summary

Dez and Trish are making a "Rockumentary" about Austin and Ally. Rather than a genuine rockumentary, the movie contains multiple genres depicting various aspects of their lives together. The first scene they shoot is the one where Ally first meets Austin, but Dez makes it more exciting by making Austin seem like a James Bond-type spy and adding a fight between him and a pair of ninjas. Then Trish makes a new scene in the style of a soap opera where both she and Ally play glamorous femme fatales. The script reveals that Ally originally wanted to break up her partnership with Austin, and Austin is instantly offended, despite the fact that Ally has long since changed her mind about him. Austin leaves the set in frustration, but Dez talks him into returning for the scene about the time he loses his voice before being signed on with Starr Records. That scene is staged in the style of a Broadway musical. During this scene, Austin doesn't exactly act that well because of him being mad with Ally. He promises Dez that he'll put the issue behind him, but Ally's revelation still bothers him, and it interferes with his performance in the next scenes. First they do the scene where Ally has to sing at Jimmy's Halloween party in the style of a pirate movie, presumably the Pirates of the Caribbean series, and Austin strays from the script often berating Ally. They then do the scene where Austin has to perform at Times Square on New Year's Eve in the style of a football-themed movie. Austin breaks character once again and during another argument, Ally finds out Austin met with another songwriter after she overcame her stage fright, and so she gets mad at him.

A lot more passion than Dez was looking for.

They both leave and the next day, they have to read a script for the scene where Austin performs in order to help Ally raise money to buy instruments for a music class, but both are resentful towards each other. When Trish and Dez realize how much difficulty they're going to have getting the two to put their differences aside, they try to pretend to be the songwriter and pop-star, then suddenly transform into the 1960's adaptation of Batman. Even after this fails, they want them to be professional and make up. So, they come up with a plan to remind the both of them why they're friends and partners in the first place. They have them shoot the scene where Ally overcame her stage fright in the style of a teen vampire movie. They end up kissing like when it really happened and also make up.

Trish and Dez are convinced that their kiss was genuine, and not simply done for Dez's movie, which ends in a Chaplin-esque silent film depicting Dez's own fight with a kangaroo over a championship jacket owned by MMA fighter "Facepuncher." The kangaroo was played by none other than Trish De La Rosa.

Memorable Quotes

Austin: That movie's awesome! [clears throat] Or at least that's what I heard a girl say while I was at the theater watching a manly action movie.
Austin: [reads Ally's lines] You wanted to end our partnership?
Ally: CUT! Do we really need this scene?
Austin: After you conquered your stage fright and your career was taking off I met with another songwriter.
Ally: What?!
Trish: [imitates Ally] I love love!

Dez: [imitates Austin] Sup.

Ally: No one's gonna believe you're us.
Trish: It's not too late to cast me in Ally role. [does Ally's dance]
Ally: [sarcastically] It's like looking in a mirror.
Ally: LALALALALALA [covers her ears and run out of Sonic Boom]
Austin: You can't say lalala forever! But I can! LALALALALA [chases after her]
Trish: What if they never make up?
Dez: Then our movie's gonna have a very sad ending.
Dez: Perfect! We got it (recording the Kiss) Cut! [Austin and Ally still kissing] I said cut! [Austin and Ally still kissing] Okay, you can stop kissing now.

Trish: [Smiles] Well, I guess our plan worked. They don't seem mad at each other anymore.

Dez: They don't, do they?
Austin: [Stops kissing] A-A-Ally I'm so sorry I met with another songwriter. I knew your career was taking off and I'd thought you'd leave me.

Ally: Aww Austin, I'll always be here for you. I'm sorry I ever doubted our partnership. It's the best thing that ever happened to me.
Austin: So we're good?
Ally: [Nods] Yeah.
Trish: Uh uh um. Sorry to interrupt your moment, but what the heck was the kiss all about?
Ally: [Both Stammer] Uh... It's called acting?
Dez: Yeah, that was a lot more than just acting. [Mimicks Ally]
Austin: I told you we can be professional. It was for the movie, man.
Ally: Yeah, just for the movie man. [Stammers again] You're a really good actor Austin.
Austin: You too, Ally. Huh huh huh. Goodbye.
Ally: Yeah. [Both run off in opposite directions]

Dez: I don't know Trish. We shot dozens of scenes already. Trust me. Neither one of them is that good of an actor.
Dez: Good morning, actors! Nothing like a good night's sleep to help you forget all the reasons why you're mad at someone.

Ally: I haven't forgotten. I'm still mad at him for meeting with another songwriter.
Austin: And I'm still mad at her for not wanting to be my partner!
Dez: Hm... So, what I'm hearing is, you both didn't get enough sleep.
Trish: You guys better snap out of this. I promised Jimmy Starr a rockumentary, not a you-guys-are-both-acting-like-spoiled-brats-umentary.
Dez: Yeah, how am I gonna fit that on the poster?
Trish: Let's just rehearse. We're gonna read through the next scene, then shoot it.
Dez: [starts reading from the screenplay] "Fade in. Ally's charity event is about to be a total bust when Austin rushes in to save the day. Ally hurries over with gratitude in her eyes. [whispers] And, action, Ally...
Ally: [reading from her script in monotone] "Thank you for saving me, Austin. Thank you, thank you, thankyou" [glares at Austin] Do we really need dialogue here? Sometimes a look says all the words for you.
[Austin and Ally exchange dirty looks]

Dez: Yeah, that look says a lot of words I can't put in the movie. It's a family film.
Austin: What scene are you gonna do?

Dez: We're gonna shoot the scene where you guys have one day to write a song.
Austin: You mean for the Helen show?
Dez: No.
Ally: You mean for Austin's first performance in the mall?
Dez: No.
Austin: You mean for the Hot Summer Jam contest?
Dez: No.
Ally: You mean for the time when we--
Dez: --Man, there are a lot of times you guys only have one day to write a song.

Trish: Yeah. When this movie is over, we really need to work on your time management.
Dez: Austin, you're a vampire. And all you wanna do is protect her. [points to Ally] [walks over to Ally] And you're not a vampire. But you wanna be one. But sometimes you wanna be a werewolf! [a pause] But forget that. You're into the vampire.
