Plot

After being challenged by her teacher, Ms. Krupp, to have fun on her next school project, Avery is irritated that even her own family doesn't think she's fun. Avery begins work on a movie she calls "Freaky Fido" where a family continues to switch bodies with each other. In it, Stan switches bodies with Tyler, leaving them both in panic as they see life through each other's eyes. At first Tyler does not want to do the movie, due to thinking that it would be embarrasing to act like a dog in the movie. But when Avery tells him he is in a love scene with Nikki, he agrees and the movie begins production. When Avery continues to boss the family around, they are not having any fun with the movie. But Avery is upset when the movie is shot in a fun way because she enjoys the "thrill" of telling everyone what to do. Tyler appears the first time at the couch watching the movie and seeing the production.

Goofs

  • At the end of the showing of Freaky Fido the movie, there was a clip of Avery smashing the watermelon, with the caption Smashing Melon Productions. This is impossible as Chloe was not shooting that take of the scene. She also wasn't crying as she was when she was smashing the melon during film
    • However, this scene could have been shot later, explaining why Avery was not crying.
  • At the end of the episode Stan posts a video of him speaking. But he can't let the world know he talked.
