1 7 "The Bet" Steve Hoefer George Doty IV March 14, 2004 202
Drake has an addiction to junk food and Josh is addicted to video games. This lands them into trouble when they forget to bring Megan home on a rainy day, for which they are both grounded by Audrey. They both make a bet to see who can live without their addictions, with the loser dying their hair pink, signing a contract with Megan. After a few days, temptation takes over when Drake gets a facial rash from his sudden change in diet and must cure it by eating junk food, while Josh receives a brand new GameSphere. At this point, their parents then make a bet over who will win, with the loser dying their hair pink. Both Drake and Josh are ready to cave when Megan convinces both to try and make the other crack first. Josh turns their room into a candy palace with cotton candy pillows, while Drake plays Josh's GameSphere right in front of him. Both cave at the same moment, and they fight over who caved first until Megan reveals that it does not matter who caved first, and that they both lose. Because of this, both Audrey and Walter lose their bet as well, forcing everyone but Megan to dye their hair pink, much to her amusement. However, when everyone leaves the house, Drake stays behind to get breakfast and it is revealed that he was only wearing a wig.

But the guitar explodes when Josh plugs it into Drake's faulty amplifier while showing it to Megan, so Josh tries to buy a new one and get it autographed at the concert before Drake finds out. Megan eventually tells Drake, but he is amazed that Josh would go to such great lengths for him. However, moments before the concert, Josh accidentally slams the guitar case closed on Devin's hand. The concert is about to be cancelled, but Josh nominates Drake to perform in place of Devin, and the manager agrees. Drake then repays Josh for buying him the guitar by giving him the paycheck he earned from performing. Meanwhile, Audrey encourages Walter to bond more with Drake, but Drake is uninterested in doing so.

Josh tries to get Helen to notice him more by coming up with a promotion to sell more popcorn, but it causes a massive brawl among the customers.

Josh suggests that Drake should make Kelly break up with him, so Drake attempts to do so by acting disgusting at a dinner date, but to no avail. Meanwhile, Josh starts wearing an ugly shirt, and good things begin to happen to him, such as getting a perfect score on an assignment, getting handed a watch and ring by a feuding couple, receiving a classmate's entire video game collection, avoiding Megan's pranks, and having Kelly set him up on a double date with a teen model who loves magic and video games. Drake, fed up with Kelly's laughing, demands to wear Josh's lucky shirt to their double date, but Josh refuses, which leads to a fight that rips the sleeves off the shirt. Drake wears the sleeves and Josh the torso, but neither date goes well, so they agree to let Drake wear the whole shirt until Kelly breaks up with him, and then give it back to Josh for the rest of the night. Kelly breaks up with Drake, much to his delight, and Josh's date takes a liking to him, even kissing him. But the next day, they find the shirt is gone, having been donated by Megan and Audrey.
