Family Vacation is the 11th episode in the first season of Milo Murphy's Law.

Episode Synopsis

When Milo accidentally joins another family on their vacation, the new family must learn to cope with Murphy's Law.


The Murphys depart for their family road-trip, and they leave Diogee in the care of Zack and Melissa. After seeing a number of sights and going through a number of mishaps, the family stops at a gas station, only to have Milo accidentally get into the RV of Mr. and Mrs. Brulee and their twin daughters. After discovering the mix-up, the two families agree to rendezvous, only for both to come across misfortunes along the way due to Murphy's Law. While the Murphys take things in stride and Mr. Brulee's daughters actually enjoy the sights during delays on their way to the Colorado River, Mr. Brulee is greatly distressed.

After numerous mishaps — and incidents in which various Brulee family members are required to put money in jars for various offenses — the RVs of both families end up in the Colorado River. Fortunately, Diogee, who'd escaped the watch of Melissa and Zack as they relaxed, arrives and manages to get both families to safety, though their vehicles are lost in the water. Through all this, the Murphys remain calm, and the Brulees gain a new appreciation for more unique vacations.

Diogee, Go Home!

Melissa: Nope. We're keeping an eye on Diogee.

Milo: Stay home, Diogee. (Diogee sits) That was easy.

(Melissa and Zack are resting on floating platforms on a pool.)

Melissa: Huh, have you seen Diogee lately?
