Milo Murphy's Law Wiki

I should know, I'm your new manager.

Amanda Lopez

"Managing Murphy's Law" is the thirteenth episode of the second season of Milo Murphy's Law.

Amanda assigns herself as the new manager for Milo, Melissa and Zack's band, and helps them prepare an afternoon benefit concert. Unbeknownst to them, Milo is being spied on by aliens for his negative probability ions. Meanwhile, Dakota and Cavendish get affected by an alien amnesia device and find themselves in various places.


While Milo, Zack, Melissa, and Mort are preparing to go to Zack's house for snack and video games, Amanda tells them they are playing at the Forget the Llamas, Save the Alpacas benefit concert and that she is their manager. They say they don't have their equipment or power to play them, but Amanda enlists Chad and Lydia to help with that.

Meanwhile, at Slushy Dawg, Cavendish and Dakota arrive to take care of Alien Amnesia Device, which is broken. They speak with Jeremy Johnson about it.

Back at Jefferson County Middle School, Just Getting Started is practicing until they are forced to leave and go to Milo's house. They are unknowingly being watched by an alien craft that decide to observe Milo due to his Negative Probability Ions.

Back at Slushy Dawg, Cavendish and Dakota woke up with missing time and fast food wrappers all over the place. They drive past the devic three more time and come to play a racing game at Harry Hamster's, performing acrobatics without a net, and jostling on Segway with pool noodles. Each time ordering more food and angering and annoying Jeremy.

At Milo's house, they are thinking of new names when the garage collapses. They make it out and his parents arrive. Milo goes to get the instruments when the alien ship goes haywire and causes a truck carrying dancing ponies to crash. Milo takes out a radio and throws it while the ponies follow. Amanda has Brigette drive the group to the concert.

Back at Slushy Dawg, Cavendish and Dakota realize they are dealing with a device that causes temporary insanity and memory loss. They unknowingly drive right into it.

At the Natural History Museum, Just Getting Started prepares to go on.

At Slushy Dawg, Cavendish and Dakota wake up and see a message telling them not to drive through as the device is there. They find it and plug it up with wrappers. Just then Milo and company drive by and thank them for the fireworks.

An hour ago at the concert, Milo tries to talk Amanda out of the concert but she refuses, saying that she's learned from Milo to never quit. They perform a new song that Zack wrote and stick with their current name. The aliens watching them bearly escape and Amanda was the one who texted Cavendish and Dakota about the fireworks. After the show Amanda says being a band manager is hard but they are “just getting started” and kisses his cheek, much to Milo's surprise and enjoyment.

In the atmosphere, the aliens decided to further study Milo.
