(Season 2)

Grammy is the sixth and final episode of Season 1 of Drake & Josh and the sixth episode of the series overall.


When their parents and Megan leave town for the weekend, Drake and Josh's excitement is short lived when they learn that Grammy is coming to babysit them.


In the opening comments, Drake and Josh think that Audrey and Walter baby them despite being 15 years old.

When Audrey, Walter and Megan leave the house for the weekend, Drake and Josh's hopes and dreams of a parent and sibling-free weekend are dashed when Josh's grandma comes to babysit, much to Drake's dismay and Josh's delight. Drake wants to go to the Rock Shock concert with Scottie, Rina and Paul, but his parents forbid it. Even his bandmates also can't go too because the tickets are all sold out. However, they make a deal in which Drake can spend time with his friends if he beats Grammy in a basketball game, as long as he does not attend the concert. Drake wins the game but is forced to break his promise out of peer-pressure when his friends are able to get tickets for the concert despite being sold out.

Once there, they find out the tickets they have are actually photocopied thanks to Scottie and are detained at the venue until Grammy pays a $200 fine to release them. An outraged Grammy reveals that she let Drake win so he could go with his friends. Drake does not believe her and decides to play again, under the condition that if he wins, no one tells his parents about the concert. Grammy agrees on the condition that if he loses, he will tell his parents about the concert. Drake loses the game, but Grammy stops him from telling his parents, seeing as he paid back the $200 and was willing to tell them. When they hug each other goodbye, Grammy then secretly sticks an envelope onto Drake's back paying him back the $200 he gave her.

During the end credits, Josh talked to Drake that Grammy is part of their family. At the kitchen, Josh was having a conversation with Grammy.



  • The last time this episode aired on TeenNick was on September 11, 2012. However, the episode is still currently available to stream on Paramount+.
  • This is the final episode of the first season.
  • This is the last episode to feature Drake with spiky hair as he as seen with a bowl cut for the rest of the series.
  • This episode marks the last appearances of Scottie, Rina, and Paul.
  • Running Gag: Josh keeps getting hit in the face by the basketball.
  • Drake and his friends getting busted with fake tickets was never mentioned in Steered Straight. This may just be because his parents never found out about it since Grammy covered for Drake.
  • The events of this episode however was mentioned in Drake & Josh Go Hollywood.
  • When Drake mentions that he was going to meet his friends at the coffee shop, he technically mentions The Brew Note from the episode First Crush.
  • Grammy gives Drake a coupon for $2.00 off his next haircut which means he could've decided to get a haircut with his coupon and didn't want spiky hair anymore, in other episodes he had his bowl cut hair.
  • Audrey, Walter and Megan are absent for the majority of the episode and don't reappear until the end.
  • This is the only physical appearance of Grammy. In future episodes, she is mentioned only.
  • Grammy has always been calling Josh Joshy for the whole episode and has never even once called him by his real name, and she only calls Drake Drakey once at the end of the episode where she leaves and the weekend ends, but she's always been calling him by his real name for the whole episode.


  • At one point during the second basketball game, Josh says "All right, it's four to four. Next basket wins." However, Grammy had already scored five points, so she had already won.
  • During the basketball games, camera shots are repeated.
  • When Drake and Grammy are playing basketball, you can clearly see that there's a body double playing basketball with Drake and wearing Grammy's clothes. The body double appears in so many scenes while playing basketball, switching between Grammy and the body double back and forth, then back to Grammy when she wins and the game ends.
  • Josh is always getting hit in the face with the basketball, but if you look closely, the basketball is not completely hitting him in the face; it's briefly hitting him on the forehead, but if the basketball did hit him in the face, wouldn't he have gotten a bloody nose?
  • At the beginning of the episode, when Grammy comes into the house, she says she'd put a sign on Drake's back saying "Lazy Punk," but when she tells him to bring her suitcase upstairs to Megan's room, there's no sign on his back, but in the next scene, where he enters his room, the Lazy Punk sign is on his back, but Grammy was downstairs the whole time and Drake was upstairs sorting out her stuff, how'd she just put the sign on his back without him even seeing her or knowing until Josh sees it and tells him about it?
  • Drake and Josh say they get the whole house to themselves for the whole weekend but found out that Grammy is coming to stay with them, their parents say they come back on Sunday but near the end where Drake and Grammy play basketball, the scene ends where it's still Friday but the next scene jumps right into Sunday where Josh and Grammy are playing video games and their parents and Megan coming back, it's unlikely how the episode just skipped from Friday to Sunday, the episode didn't even show Saturday as it skipped Saturday and just jumped in from Friday to Sunday.
  • Also, Drake and Josh even explain to their parents about what they did on Friday, but they didn't say or talk about what they did on Saturday since that day just skipped through the episode.
  • When Drake and his friends go to the Rock Shock concert with free pretend tickets, you can see closely that Scottie’s holding, they’re not fake tickets at all, they’re actually fake money.
  • Drake should’ve told Grammy that the reason why he was detained at Rock Shock concert because of his drummer Scottie had photocopied the concert tickets before they left.
