They pay a visit to and Oliver does not place any stock in all the crazy items the psychic says.

Later, that evening, Franklin comes by, dressed in a suit and carrying a rose. Anna-Kat stands up and prepares for her large moment…and he walks appropriate previous her – and appropriate more than to Taylor. Yeah, that is appropriate – Franklin’s been arranging to ask out Greg’s other daughter. As a shocked Taylor, and (a bewildered Trip) struggle for words, Anna-Kat angrily accuses Taylor of stealing her man and stomps out. But the most horrified of all may effectively be Oliver since the psychic predicted this taking place! She also predicted Oliver and Bri’s romantic evening at the dance would finish in disaster. Oliver did not have any explanation to think her – till now. A terrified Oliver tells Katie that he’ll just have to remain property from the dance to save his connection.

Thankfully, she appears to in a position to convince Oliver, and he decides he’ll nonetheless go to the dance.

A desperate Katie tells Anna-Kat that every little thing is “just a matter of shifting a man’s point of view so he sees you differently.” Anna-Kat says she sees what she implies and Katie starts to hope that perhaps she and Greg will get the evening to themselves immediately after all.

The subsequent morning, Anna-Kat is nonetheless icing Taylor out when each Franklin and Trip arrive. Anna-Kat invited them. Katie gets excited as it appears like Anna-Kat is gonna attempt and set items straight with Franklin. But then she does some thing a small distinct – she asks Trip to the dance! Trip is even much more stupefied than usual, but Taylor speedily accepts for him. Now he’s actually confused. Afterward, Taylor explains that this is the only way Anna-Kat and her will be even, and no a single desires to be on Anna-Kat’s undesirable side. It appears like the sisters are double dating, even if it is an, albeit nontraditional, arraignment.

All troubles, aside, Katie’s thrilled. This implies that absolutely everyone will be out of the home – except apparently Oliver. Turns out, the psychic predicted this as well, and now Oliver’s even much more convinced than ever that he desires to remain property from the dance! Katie consults Angela and Doris about her dilemma at Second Breakfast and asks Angela to speak to Oliver. She goes to psychics and Oliver trusts her, so if she tells Oliver every little thing the psychic stated was crap, he may really think it.

Angela performs some produced-up spell to reverse the psychic’s predictions, and abruptly Oliver’s completely cool with going to the dance. Mission achieved!

At property, Greg and Katie get prepared for date evening, full with Greg placing on a hideous mullet wig reminiscent of his hair when they initial met, when a cell telephone rings. Bri accidentally left her telephone at the home when she and Oliver left. Katie picks up and begins speaking to her mom, only Bri’s mom has no notion who she (or Oliver) are. Apparently, Bri’s not permitted to date till sophomore year, and she’s been hiding Oliver from her mom. Bri’s mom vows to go down to the dance and break up the young couple’s evening. The psychic’s prediction of “romantic disaster” appears to be coming accurate immediately after all. Katie tells Greg they are going to have to rush more than to the dance and hopefully quit Bri’s mom prior to she can get to them.

Meanwhile, Taylor and Trip scheme to get Franklin to notice Anna-Kat. But it turns out they never have to do considerably scheming. Franklin walks up on them kissing and he’s all how could you do this to “the greatest girl the in globe?” And that is it – he realizes he’s really believed Anna-Kat is the “greatest girl in the globe” the complete time. Abruptly Taylor’s old news and Franklin’s noticed the light.

Katie and Greg get to the dance, only to recognize Bri’s mom beat them there. But, she’s reacting surprising effectively, possessing decided she likes Oliver. She even apologizes to Bri for placing her in a position exactly where she felt like she had to hide items from her. Katie laments that the psychic actually was incorrect – the evening did not finish in a romantic disaster. Greg disagrees, the evening did finish in romantic disaster, just not for Oliver and Bri, but for them. Date evening has been completely ruined. As the two appear on in defeat, Greg has an notion to turn the evening about.
