Milo Murphy's Law Wiki

You, a city boy, handle it? I don't think so.

Marcus Underwood

"Field of Screams"[2] is the fourteenth episode of the second season of Milo Murphy's Law.

Zack gets the chance to prove he's not a city boy when he's tasked to do farm chores for his uncle Cornelius while he's away, and gets help from Milo and Melissa. Meanwhile, Cavendish and Dakota have to retrieve an alien artifact from a nearby cornfield owned by a cranky farmer.


Zack agreed to look after his uncle's farm, which his father doubts he could do, and asks Milo and Melissa for help. They arrive at the farm and uncle Cornelius bids them farewell. They try milk a cow, but then they notice a milking machine. However Murphy's Law causes it to explode. The gang then takes a pebble out of a horse's, Old Face Hicker, hoof, which sets off a chain reaction causing them to get buried in a pile of hay. Then they make scarecrows with the machine, but Zack gets caught in the straw and got himself in a scarecrow costume. Lastly, they feed the pigs. A piglet starts to like Zack but runs into a cornfield after a chicken coop explodes. The friends get covered in various materials.

Meanwhile, Cavendish and Dakota are assigned to take a piece of metal that fell off a UFO from a farm. When they ask to be let in and tell the farmer what they are after, he refuses and decides to take pictures and sell them to the tabloids. The duo asks again and is dowsed with a hose. They then sneak onto the property in alien costumes, but the farmer sees them and chases after them with a camera.

Dakota and Cavendish find the metal but are scared when Milo (covered in eggs and branches), Zack (still in a scarecrow costume with the piglet covering his face), and Melissa (covered in slop and corn stuck in her hair) come. The five are scared of each other and run from each other and the farmer. Cavendish and Dakota escape with the metal and the trio get back to the farm just as Zack's uncle returns and congratulates them.

At the Underwood House, Zack's parents congratulate them and show them their picture in the tabloids.

  • Field of Dreams: The episode title is a reference to the 1989 film.
  • Scooby Doo: The chase sequence bears a similarity to the chase sequences from the Scooby Doo franchise.
  • Phineas and Ferb: Cavendish and Dakota's alien costumes resemble the alien costume Doof wore in "Ladies and Gentlemen, Meet Max Modem!".
  • Avatar: The Last Airbender: During the chase sequence, Cavendish has an ear of corn sticking out of his mouth. This could be a reference to the second-season episode “City of Walls and Secrets”, where a man sucking on a corncob emerged from nowhere and sat between two of the main characters.


  • This episode needs to be recalled as a couple of scenes of the swill on Melissa's mouth and her clothes disappear as well as the corncob has antlers on her head, also Milo wearing a face protector halfway and it is unknown if Melissa put the face protector on or not as this scene switches to her filming Zack and It's never seen what happens to Cavendish and Dakota after they hop over the fence with the part of the UFO. It's likely they went to the van and got the UFO part to Mr. Block.
