Liv's new music team takes a huge step in the wrong direction, causing her latest single to be a viral hit for all the wrong reasons.
|Liv gets a new agent just in time for her new song, "Froyo Yolo". The Rooney family watches Liv's new music video and is shocked at the outcome, and consequently, Liv is not the exception to that sentiment. After the video, business at the local froyo shop know known as The Peppy Rainbow skyrockets due to the fact that the video was shot at the shop, and Joey comes home to brag about his discount due to his relationship to her. Just then Liv meets her new agent, Becky Bicklehoff, and she tells Liv that she will performing her new song live in a week.
Pete tries to impress Karen by writing love notes, but it backfires and Karen assumes that he will write one every day. After Karen leaves the kitchen, Pete confides with Parker about his impending difficulties over coming up with new daily love notes.
Liv doesn't want to perform the song, which leads to her trying to write one herself. Unfortunately, she fails to think of anything. Then, Maddie comes into the bedroom and says that she 'got a J-O-B to hang out with the D-I-G'. They both talk for a minute, and Maddie reveals that she has a secret poetry journal. She tells Liv not to read it but as soon as Maddie leaves she does.
Pete starts paying Parker to write love notes for Karen, but he doesn't realize that Parker is using a toy, "Lovey Dovey Lizard", to write the notes. Meanwhile, at The Peppy Rainbow, Maddie and Diggie flirt with each other while they work, which grosses Stains out. Unfortunately, she has trouble being as perky as her co-workers. Diggie orders her to take her job more seriously and "pep up her rainbow," and both she and her boyfriend/boss admit that they hate her working at the yogurt shop, but she's afraid to tell him, and he's afraid to fire her.
After Maddie comes home from her job, Liv shows her her new song. She tells her how its about how much she missed Maddie when she was in Hollywood, but Maddie gets upset and tells her that she can't sing that song. Back at the yogurt shop, Maddie's attempts to be perky to the customers ends up scaring them, while making her feel empty and miserable. Diggie finally decides he has no other choice but to fire her, which thrills her to no end. As part of another attempt to spend time with her girlfriend, Diggie offers quit his ukulele lessons before she goes off to play on the Junior Olympics Basketball Team.
Karen finds another note and asks Pete why he didn't write the notes while they dated or when she was pregnant with the twins. She then shows Pete Parker's toy lizard, accusing him of getting the notes from the toy. In reality he was clueless about it, but not clueless enough to realize that Parker got all those affectionate quips from the lizard.
Liv is upset that she has to sing "Froyo Yolo", but she has no choice. She starts to sing the song, but Maddie tells her to stop, and then gives her permission to sing the new one. Liv calls it "Count Me In" and the video is posted online, where it gets more views than "Froyo Yolo".
Later, Liv thinks everyone has forgotten about "Froyo Yolo" but Joey begs to differ. Stains and Diggie start to sing the song as the store watches them, although Liv is far from pleased about doing so.
