Dance Off is the 5th episode in Season 1 of Good Luck Charlie.

Episode Summary

A Moonlight dance is approaching at Teddy's school. Teddy asks Spencer out for the big night and Ivy asks out Emmet so she and Teddy can get rides to the dance. Teddy tries to get her first kiss from Spencer, but Emmett, who also likes Teddy, tries to distract Spencer which leads to a dance-off between the two. However, Teddy gets her first kiss with Spencer anyway. Meanwhile, Gabe tricks to get his parents to argue at a parent-teacher meeting because he has been lying to his teacher and saying that he could not complete his assignments because of his parents arguing, so he releases the class' pet rat, which runs around the room scaring everyone.

End Credits

Emmett and Spencer walk into the Moonlight dance and see someone that is completely better than them dance-wise. The dancer is Charlie, so Emmett and Spencer join in and dance with Charlie on the dance floor.
