Andi tells Jonah Beck that she saw Amber with another boy. Amber comes to Andi's school to convince Jonah that Andi is lying. She tells Jonah that Andi wants them to break up because she herself has a crush on Jonah Beck.
Andi helps Jonah pick up gift for Amber's upcoming birthday. When Amber doesn't like Jonah's birthday card to her, Jonah asks Andi for help with it but Andi declines.

As Andi and Amber's new friendship blossoms, Buffy becomes skeptical. She once again warns Andi that she shouldn't trust Amber because Amber is a snake and a scorpion. She's a snorpion. Despite the warning, Andi accidentally invites Amber to a sleepover.
At first, Amber and Andi have trouble connecting or finding things they have in common during the sleepover. But as the night grows, they realize that they both love make-ups and make-overs. They dress up like each other and even put on wigs to look like each other. They have a blast! When Buffy and Cyrus call to remind Andi that she can't trust Amber, Amber apologizes to how she had been treating Andi before. She says that whenever Jonah Beck is in the equation, she can't think straight. Andi understands and the two girl friends continue to have the best sleepover fun.
After sometime, Amber helps Andi sneak out of the apartment. They go to a park with a Ferris Wheel. Andi goes in for a ride, leaving the phone down with Amber. Coincidentally, Jonah calls. When Amber sees Jonah's incoming call, she freaks out and all the old feelings come rushing back. She pulls a plug on the ride, leaving Andi stuck. When she hears police sirens, she runs away and leaves Andi in trouble. Andi is arrested for tresspassing. She gets grounded.
The next day, Andi tells Buffy and Cyrus what happened with Amber. They plan to scare her by pretending that she fell and got hurt after Amber leaving. Amber feels really bad for it and apologizes to Andi for letting her feelings for Jonah destroy their friendship. But it's too late. Andi has learned her lesson. She refuses to trust Amber again.
Their friendship comes to an abrupt demise.
Amber tries to redeem herself by helping Andi with her Jonah issues. When Jonah starts hanging out with his new girl "friend" Natalie, Amber tells Andi that Jonah used to say Andi was a friend too when they were dating.... and then he dumped her for Andi. Andi refuses to listen to Amber. To watch out for Andi, Amber confronts Jonah about it. He tells her that Andi is a really great person and if he keeps doing what he's doing with Natalie, he's going to lose her. Amber's speech makes Jonah feel guilty, and so he chooses to go to Andi's Grease sing-along instead of Natalie's frisbee video.
Andi is sitting on a log with a flower crown feeling alone and bored when her friends go out on canoes without her. Amber comes in and calls it a "hat". After a few light conversations they agree to go on a canoe ride together. While out on the lake Andi explains the whole Buffy-Walker situation to Amber.

The girls try to get back to land and Amber is being paranoid. They get off the canoe and go back to land. They are relieved and say to each other they actually had fun.
Later at the mall Buffy, Cyrus and Walker are at a food truck. Cyrus asks if they should invite Andi and Buffy says they shouldn't only to find her right behind them. She says that she is eating with Amber as she comes over to them. They wave goodbye and Buffy feels ditched. They all feel guilty as they watch Andi and Amber walk in the distance.

While taking the photos, Andi asks Amber why she's back together with Jonah and Amber explains that it just felt natural because they were spending too much time together.
