After Liv has a difficult time making friends at school, Maddie steps in to help. However, when Liv discovers she was set up and didn’t make her new friend on her own, she ignores Maddie’s warnings and instead befriends a girl known for causing trouble. Meanwhile, Joey is miserable at the new job he has accepted in order to pay back his parents for a hi-tech cell phone.
Maddie has gotten overly involved in her position as basketball team captain, and Liv has taken notice and considers making new friends at school. When Liv finds out that Maddie has arranged for a fellow student to befriend her, she cuts school with a more troublesome student against Maddie's discretion and gets in trouble to which Maddie takes the blame.
