Game Shakers Wiki

At Fooders, the gang arrives there but it's closed for a week because they’re installing flush-able toilets in the bathrooms. They go to a coffee shop but there's no waitress. The owner gives them the coffee. It's in a bowl. A girl stares at Trip and Hudson and she likes Trip. Babe's impatient about the article about her and Kenzie.

Babe still wants Kenzie to notice any changes in the article. Hudson is performing at the coffee shop and performs a song. The girl then kisses Trip because she has to take a train back home to Long Island. Kenzie checks the article and Babe is only in the picture and the name. Kenzie, believing Babe asked the editor to have the article about her and not them as a team, says she needs to stop hanging out with Babe now and unfriends her, despite Babe telling her that she had no knowledge about this even wanting to call the editor to get the article fixed but Kenzie didn't want her to. At Game Shakers, Hudson arrives and plays a keyboard for the beta of the game. Dub carries Trip and drops him. Trip's arm was bit by a monkey owned by Dub's brother as Dub told Bunny to steal the monkey. for revenge as he owes Dub 200 dollars. The monkey knows how to play the keyboard. At the coffee shop, Hudson and Trip hang out there and Kenzie is the new waitress there and has a new hairdo. The girl arrives to hang out with Trip and put a tracking device on him. At Game Shakers, Babe replaces Kenzie with another girl. Kenzie gets mad at Babe for asking a question on her hair and for replacing her, as she wanted to talk to her.

Trip tells Babe that Kenzie works at the coffee shop. Dub tells Bunny to call Dub's brother to let him know that he needs to pay him. At the coffee shop, Hudson plays a song for a couple on their honeymoon but it's a negative one. Babe tells a girl to tell Kenzie a lie about her so Babe can change herself into Kenzie's clothes to get her fired by spilling coffee on costumers. Babe then defends Kenzie as she makes this an apology, despite all of it being Kenzie fault for over reacting and accusing Babe for no reason. They have made up. They hang out at a water fountain.

Memorable Quotes

How you doin'?
"Weird guy on the subway, what's that stain upon your pants? Oh, please don't sit down next to me and quit asking me to dance. A rat is crawling up your leg, you smell just like a rotten egg; Oh can't you see that I am reading, it's not my fault that you are bleeding. And if I scoot away from you, oh please don't feel rejected; But that sore on your face is scaring me. It's whispering: 'I'm infected.' [people clap awkwardly] Thanks for the mild applause!
No money, no monkey!
Wer’e on a break!
Once you diss her, you can’t dismiss her!
Preach sista!
Uh, I didn’t apologize this was all your fault [Trip nods in agreement]
