Original Release Date: October 21, 2022

Written by: Lindsey Stoddart

♫ She's got the goods
She's got the good, good, goods

They know that it's hot
So good, so good, so good
So good, so good ♫
Everyone, "I Got the Goods"

In order to complete two writing deadlines, Paige checks into a hotel to focus; Owen volunteers for a school kickball tournament that Molly is trying to avoid. When Bitsy feels old after someone mistakes her for a grandmother, Abby helps Helen make Bitsy feel young again in exchange she gets a schedule change.

Tropes:

  • Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: Molly doesn't like it when Owen goes "full dad" on her while at school, like when he picks her up and hugs her.
  • Down to the Last Play: Hazel's team is winning by one point and they just need one more strike to get the final player out to win. When Hazel's pitcher gets a bloody nose from getting the ball kicked into his face, Molly steps up to be the pitcher and wins the game thanks to Owen teaching her his "Spin and Flick" throw.
  • From Bad to Worse: Abby's attempts to help Bitsy feel young again makes things worse for Helen. First, Bitsy took her frustration out by throwing plates on the ground, but Abby's mirror tricks makes it worse and she starts setting her couch on fire. When Abby gets DJ Hiney to try to compliment Bitsy when she comes out the elevator with Helen, Abby forgets to tell him who Bitsy looks like and he ends up complimenting Helen by mistake, making Bitsy so furious that she plans to fire Helen later in the day. The problem is resolved when Abby gets her future accent instructor to help her by complimenting Bitsy for being young and she's in a better mood now and doesn't fire Helen.
  • Advertisement:
  • Gaussian Girl: Abby smears lip gloss on a compact mirror, hoping that when Bitsy looks into it her reflection will look younger. It works at first, but then the lip gloss starts melting.
  • Ma'am Shock: Bitsy gets upset when an old lady assumes Abby is her granddaughter and calls her "grandma", which sends Bitsy into a tantrum.
  • Nested Story Reveal: Turns out the whole thing with Paige going to a hotel to write and getting involved with criminals was just the latest chapter in her novel and she was writing at home the whole time.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: Helen notes that when Bitsy is nice and doesn't want to drink, it means she's about to fire someone. Either that, or she's watching a cat eat a bird.
  • Poor Communication Kills: Abby gets her roommate DJ Hiney to make Bitsy feel young when he sees her. Unfortunately, Abby forgets to tell him what Bitsy looks like and ends up complimenting Helen instead, which infuriates Bitsy even more.
  • Running Gag: Enrique trying to find an opportunity to shout "bloodbath" as one of the kickball announcers while Cole tries to stop him. When one of the kickball players gets a bloody nose from getting the ball kicked into his face, Cole allows Enrique to shout "bloodbath".

♫ She's got the goods
I've got the goods
She's got the goods
I've got the goods
She's got the goods
She's got the good, good, goods
They want what I got
My story is hot
So good, so good, so good
You got the goods
I've got the goods ♫
