When Joey is too nervous to talk to the new girl who he likes, Maddie decides the best place for him to practice talking to girls is at the high school dance–when everyone is in costume.

Episode Summary

{{Spoilers2| It's Halloween, and Ridgewood High is hosting its annual "Halloween Scream fest". Maddie gets invited to join the couples costume contest by her crush, and the pair has difficulty reading into the outing. Joey is interested in the new girl at school and Maddie suggests that he practice talking to other girls before approaching his crush. Unbeknownst to him, the first girl he approaches is his sister, Liv, while in costume. Meanwhile, Parker discovers a clown doll that once belonged to Karen, who thought she had long got rid of.

Memorable Quotes

Ocean: It's my favorite day of the school year. Except all the days I get to come here and learn.
Liv: Ocean, don't repeat that. Other people don't get you in a way that I barely do.
Diggie: Sup, Rooney?

Maddie: Sup, Diggie?
Diggie: Got your costume ready for Screamfest?
Maddie: You know I do. I got this really cool knight costume and it is going to melt your face off!
Diggie: Sweet. Hey I'll go as that too then, maybe we could win the couples' costume contest?
Maddie: Yeah, okay...

Diggie: Er, and you know when I mean couple I mean the contest category and... well you get it.
Diggie and Maddie: WHAT ARE YOU WEARING?

Maddie: Er, I'm a knight. We said we were gonna be knights.
Diggie: Oh, I thought you meant like 'the night'.
Maddie: Are you kidding? We're never going to be able to enter the couples' contest now.
Diggie: No, sure we can. We're a couple of k/nights! Hah.

Maddie: Yep, that is us. A couple, haha, of k/nights. Hah, if there was one more of us we'd be a few! But there's not because we're a couple of k/nights!
Joey: I hope this isn't kangarude but I can't help wondering if trapped inside that kangaroo is a stoned cold fox!
Maddie: Bam! What-did I do?
