Ever since Teddy and Spencer got back together, the basketball team hasn't been able to win a game. This leads to everybody thinking that Teddy is a jinx. They fake break up and the basketball team wins and Teddy announces that they did not break up. Overhearing that Amy and Bob are thinking about sending him to military school, Gabe starts acting on his best behavior, only to find out it was not true after Amy and Bob took advantage of him. (Really it was one of Amy's friends sending her son to military school.) PJ frequently attends his local barbershop to spend time with Syd (Rachel Melvin), an attractive female barber. The next time that PJ went there to find she was giving a hair cut to another client and PJ then says their "relationship" was over. She disagrees, saying they never had a relationship and that she has other clients, to which PJ responds, "That's all I am to you? A client?" He has another crazy barber at the same place cut his hair to make her jealous and ends up with endless scrapes and cuts afterwards.
Spencer's final shot for the state championship is blocked by a hand. Once the crowd gasps, the blocker is shown to be Charlie, as she says "Not in my house!" to Spencer. Meanwhile, Ivy has a date with Serurge Leflure (Teddy's Mime boyfriend).

- The military plot with Gabe seems very similar to Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days when Greg's dad considers sending him to Spag Union. PJ searches up the school while Gabe is with him, similar to Dog Days where Greg's big brother, Rodrick searches up Spag Union when Greg is with him.
