When Willow earns a scholarship that Maddie really wanted, the besties get into a huge fight. Then, when Joey accidentally breaks Liv’s toe and tries to make things better, he ends up making it even worse.
While trying to get Liv to sign some Voltage junk to make money, Joey accidentally drops a bowling ball on Liv's foot and she breaks her toe. Joey then dedicates himself to being Liv's man-servant until she gets better. Joey tries really hard, but ends messing up several times. Meanwhile, Parker creates a meatball machine so he doesn't have to eat vegetables and is nervous about telling Reggie that he can't make meatballs because he is not a genius. Meanwhile, Maddie and Willow hold a porcupine basketball camp for little girls. When Willow gets a scholarship to the university Maddie was dreaming of going to, Maddie gets jealous and accidentally blurts a few things out to Willow and Willow takes offense and leaves. The little girls don't want to play basketball anymore because, after seeing Maddie and Willow fight, they think it tears apart friendships. Willow then overhears Maddie telling the children that she was wrong to be jealous of Willow and they make up. Parker invents a meatball machine that turns vegetables into meatballs for Reggie, but it turns out to be a fake. Later, Liv has become so desperate to be rid of Joey, she resorts to pulling off a very convincing imitation of Maddie to frighten him off. Maddie then shows up and comments that her Maddie has become so much better.
