1 21 "The Drake & Josh Inn" Adam Weissman Jake Farrow April 2, 2005 305
Audrey and Walter leave the house to go to Los Angeles for Spring Break, leaving Drake and Josh in charge of the house. But Drake spends $200, that they were given for food and emergencies only, on toys and other unnecessary items. Desperate for money, Drake gets the idea to turn their house into a bed and breakfast after he notices a couple who has no place to stay. Josh initially disagrees as he is furious at Drake for his greedy spending, but later agrees because they need money. Megan also agrees as long as she is treated like a guest. Things quickly get out of hand, however, when Drake invites a crowd of partying college students to stay, and when MTV starts broadcasting from their house. Audrey and Walter get suspicious when they see their house on TV, and start heading home. But with the help of Megan, Drake and Josh succeed in getting everyone out and cleaning up the house before Walter and Audrey come home. Audrey and Walter are then mistakenly arrested for hosting a televised party without a city-authorized permit.

Josh enters a salsa making contest and asks Drake to help him in order to win the prize, a plasma screen TV. Megan wants to help the boys win the TV, but they decline, wanting to keep the prize for themselves. Megan sabotages their salsa in retaliation, causing it to explode all over the kitchen, with the boys taking the blame. Drake and Josh, sick of getting blamed for all of Megan's pranks, try to dig up some proof of her deviousness, and discover a surveillance panel in her room, only for them to get in more trouble when the panel is hidden when they attempt to show their parents. Megan then enters the salsa contest on her own, and obtains a "Peruvian Puff Pepper," a rare pepper that could guarantee her victory, so the boys steal the pepper and use it in their salsa instead, infuriating Megan. Drake and Josh go on to win the contest, but they are disqualified when they reveal their secret, as Peruvian Puff Peppers are illegal in the United States, leaving Megan as the winner. Although she realizes that the boys think that she set them up, she convinces them she is not that smart to do that. At the end, Megan watches the boys repaint the kitchen after the earlier incident through her new TV.

Drake tries to carry on with life as normal, but Yooka is serious about being married (revealing that they mistranslated her saying "sick of home"), and matters only get worse when Yooka's parents come to visit. So Drake and Josh come up with a plan to annul the marriage, serving her family goat (which is a sacred animal in Yudonia). But Drake quickly regrets it after he learns that Yooka's father is a billionaire. The plan works, with Yooka's father ending the marriage and their whole family returning to Yudonia, much to Drake's sadness.

However, Josh is too worried to tell Drake about his newfound relationship, due to Drake and Mindy's hatred for one another. But because of this, Mindy breaks up with Josh.

After being accepted into the TTT (Tomorrow's Teachers Today), a student-teaching group, Josh becomes Megan's class teacher. However, he takes his new job very seriously and overuses his teaching skills, as he challenges the students with college-level chemistry, something that the students are not old enough to learn about, and even fails them on pop quizzes based on homework that they were unable to do. Because of this, Megan becomes disliked by her classmates and gets uninvited to her friend Katie's birthday party which involves a Josh piñata. Drake finds an 11-year-old boy in Megan's class with a talent to play drums and wants him to play for the band on Friday after his original drummer quit, but he is not allowed to play after failing Josh's pop quiz, so Drake is now annoyed at Josh. Drake and Megan hatch a sneaky little plan to fire Josh from the student-teaching group. They sneak into the school at night and replace his liquid (to use in chemistry) with one that will explode when combined with anything, replace a tape about chemistry with a video of clowns hurting each other with rubber chickens, and unscrew the sink to burst water when turned. At the end, Josh is fired and the young boy gets to play with Drake at a concert in the Premiere. However, Megan and her classmates then give a trophy to Josh, calling him their favorite teacher, because him screwing up his teaching job got the class's other teacher (whom they hated) to quit. They then admit that Josh is cool, not as a teacher, but as a guy, something which Josh delightfully accepts.

On the show, Dr. Phyllis has the boys reminisce about fights they have had in the past. When Drake mentions that he once dated a girl named Liza Tupper, he calls her dumb and a bad kisser. Liza Tupper, however, happens to be Dr. Phyllis' daughter. The host gets mad at Drake and attacks him, then attacks Josh when he tries to stop her. Once back at the house, the boys are upset that Dr. Phyllis only made them think of the bad times they have had together, even though they have had good times as well.
