Episode Summary


Main Cast

Recurring Cast


  • This is Andie's first appearance in season 3.
  • Josh starts liking Maddie.
  • Josh is the main character in this episode.
  • Dump Truck asked Andie out.
  • Joey's middle name was revealed to be "Gilligan."
  • Andie's last name was revealed to be Bustamante.
  • Josh's last name was revealed to be Wilcox.
  • This is part 1 of the Mosh Arc.
  • Maddie won Cowbell Week 3 years in a row as of this episode.
  • This episode was watched by 1.820 million viewers, currently being the highest rated episode of the season.
  • Although this was the fifth episode to air, it was the fourth shot.
  • In the UK plot, Josh's name is known as Kyle.
  • This episode is similar to the I Didn't Do It episode, Lindy Nose Best, because Josh (Jasmine) likes Maddie (Logan) after spending time with them, but does not tell her (him). The episode also aired two days after the series finale of I Didn't Do It.
  • Liv does a scene with Josh for Voltage, when Liv says Roswell, New Mexico, which is the setting of a show from the late 90's, "Roswell".
  • The writers had to explain to the cast what "pugilist" meant.[2]
  • The shirt Lucas Adams wore in a Voltage scene was one that writer, David Tolentino wore in the 90's.[3] This could be a clue on Garrison's character, possibly hinting he is older than he is, especially because he says, "There's something about me, you don't know".
  • The scene where Dump Truck belled Willow took several takes.[4]
  • Lucas Adams actually did hit the lockers, without it being a body double, and did it several times.[5]
  • Dove Cameron did the dance sequence at the end of episode all on her own.[6]


  • In reality, the section of the school used to shoot Voltage would have been closed off, for the express purposes of preventing someone like Maddie from walking on set and messing up the shot. And more than likely, it would also have been a stunt double thrown, and not Josh.
I belled you in your sleep - Maddie Rooney

Maddie says she belled this girl in her sleep.

  • The girl that Maddie claimed to have belled in her sleep was actually walking down the hall, and was the first person she belled that year.
  • Just before Willow cowbells Mackenzie, she compliments her dress, but Mackenzie is obviously wearing a cropped top and skirt, not a dress.
  • If you listen carefully, when Liv says "You like Maddie!" to Josh, she actually says Mayddie, not Maddie.


Josh: It's not gonna be tough telling you and Liv apart.
Maddie: (after "cowbelling" a girl at school) Yea! Awww, my first bell of the year! I am THE MILKMAID!! Hear me pour!!
Liv: (giving Willow and Andie a studio tour) So, this is my secret lair. It's an old clock tower where Tess can build her gadgets, practice her powers, and deliver angst-ridden speeches.
Maddie: (taunting other losers) I belled you, I belled you, and... you wish I belled you! I belled you in your sleep!
Liv: (gasps with excitement) You like Maddie!
Josh: How could you not? She's adorable.
Willow: (holding a cowbell) Mackenzie, I love your dress! I have a necklace that matches! (chases after her)
