You can say no, but the universe will not be ignored.
When the power goes out in Shadyside, a day of fun and games shed light on unexpected revelations.
Despite it being a school day, Andi tells Bex when she wakes up that she doesn't feel like going today. Bex tells Andi that although she agrees that everyone needs a day off now and then, Andi still needs to go to school. Andi is resigned to go when the two receive a phone call from Andi's school informing them that school is cancelled due to a power outage. Andi thanks the universe for this stroke of good luck.
Andi and Bex decide to relax all day and simply hang out as BFFs. Bex creates a comfort shack out of pillows and blankets and the two spend the day there reading magazines and eating popcorn. Andi finds a quiz in a magazine she is reading that will test how well you really know your best friend. After a few easy questions, Andi asks Bex about the one thing in her life that she regretted not saying and why she did not say it.
Bex declines to answer the question, saying she doesn't have to follow a basic magazine quiz. Andi then asks her as Bex's daughter instead, but Bex still refuses to answer. Andi tells her mother that the two have kept enough secrets from each other over the years and that it is time for them to be honest with one another, which leads Bex to finally answer the question. Bex admits that she wishes that she had said yes to Bowie when he asked her to marry him.
Andi is initially thrilled that Bex has changed her mind and asks Bex when she is going to let Bowie know that she wants to marry him after all. Bex tells Andi that she has no plans to tell Bowie, as she insists that he has moved on and is now dating another woman. Bex also indicates that Bowie's proposal was rushed and that she might have said yes had he taken more time. This deeply upsets Andi, as she was the one who convinced Bowie to propose. Andi asks if the situation is her fault, and when Bex doesn't give an explicit "no," Andi runs off to her room tearfully.
Bex enters Andi's room and tries to lighten the mood between the two, but Andi is still visibly upset. Bex tells Andi that she has to think about how one's decisions affect other people, but Andi accuses Bex of not thinking about how her decisions would affect her own daughter. Bex travels to Celia's house and tells her mother that she has had an argument with Andi and needs Celia's advice on how to handle a teenage daughter. Celia reveals that she had been waiting for the moment when Bex needed help, and after savoring the moment she agrees to talk to Andi.
Celia and Bex return to the apartment to try to talk to Andi, but they are shocked to find that Andi is nowhere to be found. Andi has run away from home and is next seen sitting in Bowie's truck talking to her father. Bowie tells Andi that she needs to let Bex know where she is, but says that Andi is welcome to stay with him for as long as she needs.
Meanwhile, Cyrus and Buffy are eating at The Spoon, thinking of ways to spend their day off school. Cyrus really wants to play a certain game, but Buffy tells him that the game always ends with people's feelings getting hurt. Cyrus pulls out an old coupon signed by Buffy when they were eight that guarantees that Buffy will agree to play any game that Cyrus wants. Buffy has no choice but to play with Cyrus, but since Andi is unavailable they need one more person to play. Jonah enters The Spoon and is quickly chosen to be the third player.
The three begin to play the game, which is revealed to be "Property!" (an obvious reference to "Monopoly!"). Buffy and Cyrus are deeply invested in the game, while Jonah seems more interested in receiving a reply from Andi on his phone as he repeatedly texts her. After a long and brutal game, Buffy is on the verge of winning, and she tells Jonah that it's all over. Upon hearing this, Jonah is reminded of his relationship with Andi, and he insists that it's not over, flipping the board in the process.
Buffy and Cyrus conclude that the game has claimed another victim, but Jonah tells them the real reason as to why he flipped out. Buffy and Cyrus find Jonah's worrying over Andi to be ironic, given that she is usually the one obsessed with him. The two remind Jonah that Andi has not been responding to their texts either, so whatever is going on with Andi is unrelated to her relationship with Jonah. This makes a reluctant Jonah feel better.
