So James, Carlos, and Logan each date a girl from the Palmwoods for a few minutes and then try to break up with them to know what it's like. James dates the Jennifers and Logan dates Camille. When Kendall finally cheers up, James is upset because Jennifer broke up with him instead of vice versa, ruining his perfect "never been dumped" record. Carlos is upset because he only spent 12 minutes dating 'red shirted girl' and it was "the best 12 minutes of his life." Meanwhile, Gustavo has writers block while trying to write the band’s summer single that has to “rule the world.”

With the help of Katie, the boys write a list of requests (such as ice-cream machines and hot tubs) to Gustavo in exchange for ending their strike, but Gustavo doesn't accept, so the conflict continues. Meanwhile, Mrs. Knight is also striking because Katie says being a mom is an easy job, which leaves Katie to do all the household chores. Gustavo tries to hold auditions to get a new band to sing the song and modify the vocals to sound like BTR. However the boys fend them off from the studio. The boys then plan to upload a music video on the web to get their fans behind their cause; Logan says they can't because Gustavo has the rights to all their songs, but Kendall recalls the one song he doesn't own. So, the boys make a video for "The Giant Turd Song", but when they see how terrible it is, they choose not to upload it. Finally, Katie admits that being a mom is hard work and the boys seek help from Mrs. Knight to reach an agreement with Gustavo. Gustavo and the boys agree, thanks to Mrs. Knight who pressured him into fulfilling some of their demands like giving breaks. Thus the boys sing the new song to Griffin who congratulates them all for the good work. However Griffin then orders them to write a new song at that moment without a break. None of them agree, so they shock Griffin instead, who agrees to give them a break.
