Cyrus saves the day. Not something you get to say very often.
Having only about a week of time together before Buffy leaves, The Good Hair Crew wants to have one last fun adventure together. Andi suggests recreating their perfect day. They settle on recreating the day that they went on a bike ride to the Alpine Slide and passed by a shop that sells cider and doughnuts made of pumpkin. Andi tells Bex their plan, but she doesn't like it, saying that in her experience, "you can't recreate a perfect day." The reasoning behind this is because the recreation is never as good as the memory, like leftovers to the original meal.
Buffy and Cyrus get their bikes while Andi uses Bex's old rusty bike "Skidboot" since she had sold her bike to buy a motorized one before her 13th birthday. Andi's bike's bell falls off and they go to Wheel Works Mobile Bike Repairs. Bex starts getting worried for their safety, asking if they have their phones or ID. Andi jokingly tells her to "stop being such a mom."
The trio start their bike ride. First stop - Pumpkin Doughnuts. At first, they almost forget how to ride their bikes for a moment. Eventually, Andi and Buffy get the hang of it and start riding their bikes at a normal speed. Cyrus, however, lags behind. Buffy and Cyrus arrive at the Pumpkin Doughnuts shop but Cyrus takes a couple minutes to arrive. Apparently, he had been using just one gear because he hadn't noticed that his bike could shift to different gears. Andi, Buffy, and Cyrus enter the shop and purchase cider and pumpkin doughnuts. Bex calls to check in on them. They assure her that their day is going great.
After getting out of the pumpkin doughnuts shop, the Good Hair Crew is shocked to find that Cyrus and Buffy's bikes are missing. They try to all ride in Andi's rusty Skidboot but it's not possible. So, they decide to walk on foot for the rest of the remaining distance. A bee starts buzzing around Cyrus. After walking a short distance, Cyrus tries to run away from the bee but accidentally gets his foot stuck in muddy quicksand. Buffy and Andi pull him out but his right shoe disappears into the quicksand. They're all covered in mud and now Cyrus has to walk with one shoe.
While trying to figure out what to do, a county sheriff deputy stops by and asks them if they need a ride. They get inside her car. After a short distance, the trio notices two kids riding on bikes that look like their stolen bikes. Deputy Bartlett agrees to help stop the thieves. Unfortunately, she's called away on the police radio. She's forced to drop Andi, Buffy and Cyrus off and pursue the case. As the County Sheriff Deputy fades into the distance, Andi realizes that she left her bike and the bag with her phone in the car. Buffy left her phone in the car as well. So, here they are. Stranded. No phones. No bags. No bikes.
Luckily, Cyrus still has his phone in his pocket. Unfortunately, it's only 2% charged. They can only make one short call. Buffy takes it to call Bex. When Bex assumes that the kids have already arrived at Alpine Slides, Andi goes along with it and refuses to tell Bex the truth. While ending the call, Buffy and Cyrus scream at her to tell Bex that they're stranded. But it's too late. Andi explains that she did it because this is their last adventure together and she doesn't want Buffy to remember them for giving up. So, they have to keep trying. To make things worse, Cyrus finally gets stung by a bee right afterwards, forcing Buffy to carry him.
To everyone's surprise, Bex approaches them in a car. She tells them that she suspected something was wrong during the phone call and came for the rescue. She asks to drive them wherever they want. They choose The Spoon Diner. As Andi, Buffy, and Cyrus eat their regular baby taters, everyone stares at them because their clothes are so muddy. Andi is worried that Buffy might think that was the worst day ever, but Buffy calls it the craziest. On their way out, they notice two kids wearing Alpine Slide t-shirts. They assume those are the kids that stole their bikes. Cyrus and Andi take the bikes but after riding a few feet, they realize that those aren't actually their bikes.
Out of all that craziness, Andi, Buffy, and Cyrus had almost forgotten about Buffy's looming departure in a week. Buffy sadly walks home as Andi and Cyrus awkwardly return the bikes. While their backs are turned, Buffy looks back.
Meanwhile, Jonah Beck runs into a music store, breathing heavily. It is clear that he is having a second panic attack. Bowie Quinn, Andi's father, happens to be there and notices his condition. He calls Jonah but Jonah is too panicked to answer. When asked if he's okay, Jonah lies that he just ran to the store. Bowie asks Jonah why he ran but Jonah makes up an excuse that he wanted to buy a guitar. He admits that he doesn't know how to play but wants to learn. So, Bowie starts teaching him how to play the guitar. Jonah impresses Bowie when he quickly learns how to play guitar.
When he's ready to leave, Jonah returns the guitar making Bowie question the real reason why Jonah came to the store in the first place. Jonah comes clean and tells Bowie that he just suddenly felt stressed and breathless and overwhelmed. Bowie figures out that Jonah was having a panic attack. Jonah agrees, revealing that Cyrus' dad had mentioned that too. Bowie advises him to start seeing a doctor. He also offers to be there for him if he needs anything. Afraid what Andi might think, Jonah asks Bowie to not tell Andi about his panic attacks. Bowie understands.
