Karen: No, Pete. I'm not telling-
Pete: [turns on speaker]

Karen: they were born on separate days.
Diggie: Well, I'm in. I want Maddie's sweet 16 to be as amazing as it can be.

Pete: Careful.

Diggie: Right, sorry.
Maddie: Wait, this is all for me? Where's your red carpet party?
Liv: Oh, there was no party. I totally played you. Don't feel bad though, I am a day older.
Diggie: Don't worry, birthday girl, your hero's here.
Maddie: [Maddie takes the plug out] Hey, superhero, plug's right here.
