Butt Dialing Duncans is the 7th episode in Season 1 of Good Luck Charlie.

Episode Summary

Bob buys cell-phones for Teddy and PJ and Teddy experiences the pitfalls of both digital technology and manipulation when she flatters her mother to get permission to attend a midnight movie on a school night. But during the course of bragging to her friend Ivy about her successful ploy, she sits on her innovative new phone and "butt dials" her mom who hears every word and sets out to get sweet revenge. Meanwhile, PJ complains about George Van Brunt, his intimidating lab partner, to Emmett, unaware that he has accidentally dialed his cell and it has recorded the entire message on Van Brunt's voicemail. Back at home, Bob and Gabe attempt to put together a toy helicopter in an effort to have more dad-son time, but things don't go as planned when Bob sees how complicated the instruction manual is.

End Credits

The episode ends with "Happy Horse" telling Charlie that they have a problem with Gabe, and tells her that they need to get rid of him. Among the laughter, the "Happy Horse" song plays.
