Milo Murphy's Law Wiki

The important thing is that we now have permission to collect evidence on Milo Murphy.

Balthazar Cavendish

"School Dance" is the 18th episode in the first season of Milo Murphy's Law

Amanda has carefully orchestrated and supervised the school dance, and fears that Milo will inadvertently ruin the entire event as he attends it. Meanwhile, Cavendish and Dakota also attend the school dance to spy on Milo, as Cavendish is still convinced Milo is deliberately ruining their missions.


Balthazar Cavendish and Vinnie Dakota are given their next pistachio mission: to put support stakes by each plant at a pistachio farm. After taking a look at the map that Gretchen eventually left for them - after time traveling to do it yesterday - Cavendish asks Mr. Block about Milo. Hearing that without proof he shouldn't care about the kid, Cavendish decides to find Milo and try to discover something about him.

That evening, Milo and co. walk into their school's gym to the Niagara Falls-themed dance. Amanda was the head of every committee. While they invite her to have fun, she gestures towards Lydia, who she told to have fun for her. Amanda spends half the dance worrying about Murphy's law. As Dakota and Cavendish arrive seeking information on Milo, Chad sees their stakes and believes they are vampire hunters out to kill Mr. Drako. He tells Zack and Melissa and the three agree to protect Mr. Drako. As Amanda reaches her breaking point the power goes out and she loses all hope of a perfect dance. Milo sets to work fixing the dance in the dark, losing his shoe to spilled glue in the process, while the time agents follow him to a fuse box and accidentally send the band away after Cavendish drops their temporal transporter. After the power comes back on Amanda is amazed by the upgraded decorations and finds the shoe. Cavendish and Dakota start to leave before Chad, Zack and Melissa block their path and tell them that they are on a dangerous path, the children talking about Mr. Drako and the time travelers thinking it is Milo. The time travelers get past them before bumping into Mr. Drako, apologizing and leaving. After Milo notices the missing band he calls Zack, Melissa, and Mort so they can fill in for them. Amanda searches for the shoe's owner. When Lydia points to Milo's foot, Amanda is at first surprised and then gives him his shoe back and asks him to dance, but he is busy playing the accordion in the band. He asks her if she'd like to dance later and Amanda agrees shyly, smiling at him. Amanda tells Lydia to take five as she wants to have fun for herself and starts to dance to the music.

Back at their headquarters, the time travelers are scolded by Mr. Block for abandoning their mission and then accidently sending the band to him.
