Milo Murphy's Law Wiki

— Funny seeing you guys here. I mean it's not funny that you guys are at the mall, but more coincidental that we'd all be on the same elevator. I usually take the stairs.
— And you just couldn't take the stairs today, huh?

Milo Murphy and Nolan Mitchell

"Escape" is the thirty-fifth episode of the second season of Milo Murphy's Law.

Milo, Lydia, Coach Mitchell, and Scott get stuck in the elevator of the Googolplex Mall while Zack and Melissa are having lunch. Meanwhile, Doofenshmirtz and Dakota try finding Cavendish by creating a bizarre platypus hybrid clone from Cavendish's DNA.


At the Googolplex Mall, Zack and Melissa are waiting for Milo at the food court. In a hurry, Milo gets in an elevator with Lydia, Scott, and Coach Mitchell but due to Murphy's Law, the elevator stops and most of them start to freak out.

At the Murphy Residence, Dakota is thinking about Cavendish as Doofenshmirtz brings their lunch. Dakota wants to know what Cavendish was thinking and Doof agrees to help him.

At the mall, Milo calls for help and tells the others they are in for a wait. Coach is upset due to missing belt testing day at his lasso class. He tries to get out via having Scott boost him to the emergency hatch, but fails.

Back at the house, Doof creates a clone of Cavendish via his Clone-Inator. However, the clone turns out to be Cavendish's head on a platypus body, which Dakota is clearly surprised and appalled at.

Back at the mall, Lydia is hosting an improv session with the others. Scott and Milo eagerly participate while Coach does not as Melissa and Zack observe.

In the Murphy's backyard, Dakota and Doof are arguing about Cavenpuss and they ask him what the real Cavendish would do if he went rogue. Unfortunately, however, Cavenpuss does not retain any of Cavendish's memories. The clone feels sorry for Dakota's sorrow, but as he points out it could've helped if he knew what Cavendish was looking for in the first place, Dakota realizes that he, in fact, does know what his missing partner was looking for: a UFO.

Back in the elevator, Milo, Lydia, Scott, and Coach finish and they play two truths and a lie when the elevator falls down between floors. Milo suggests they save themselves. He has Lydia pry open the doors with her unusually strong fingernails, has Scott's hard skull keep it open, and Coach's budding lassoing skills to pull them to the next floor. They plan succeeds and they escape before the elevator crashes. He meets up with Zack and Melissa and bids the others farewell and has them meet up for an improv session the following Tuesday.

The three meet up with Doof and Dakota in Milo's backyard when they tell the kids they found that to find Cavendish they need to find a UFO. Milo takes them to the Octalian Ship where they find Cavendish petrified. Dakota frees him and Cavendish tells them that the aliens are coming back for Milo.
