Who's Got Game? is the fifth episode of the fourth season of Drake & Josh.


Josh bets that he can date more girls in a week than Drake can. Could Drake's reputation as a ladies' man be in danger from this new challenger?


In the opening comments, Drake and Josh both set up challenges for each other. Drake’s challenge is to paint a picture of Abraham Lincoln in a bikini before Josh stacks 150 cans of tuna into a pyramid. When Drake realizes that Josh is almost done, he causes Josh's pyramid of tuna to collapse by jumping onto the floor from the couch.

After a debate, Drake and Josh make a bet to see who can score more dates. The bet seems to go smoothly until Drake meets and falls in love with Carly (Brittany Curran), an employee at a music store. Feeling ready to commit to her, Drake tries to call off the bet, but Josh is on a roll with the help of Audrey with scoring dates, but after Carly overhears Drake arguing with Josh about the bet, she becomes angry and breaks up with him.

Drake then tries to be honest to win her back but fails several times. Eventually after a failed attempt with Craig and Eric, he gathers everyone who he was dishonest with in the past and in front of Carly, admits all the dishonest things he did to them. This works and Carly gets back with him, even though Josh still wins the bet. As part of the bet, Josh won if he would switch beds with Drake.

During the end credits, Drake and Josh decided to switch back after Josh accidentally falls off of Drake's high risen platform.

  • Walter is absent in this episode.
  • This is the second time Drake and Josh make a bet. The first was The Bet.
  • Drake broke the fourth wall when he said "Josh must be enjoying a date montage right now" right before the date montage begins.
  • This is the first time in an episode that Drake only has one date but Josh, on the other hand, has a lot.
  • Josh's Dates: A blonde girl, a goth girl, an old woman, and a girl who keeps kissing him.
  • Carly is the only girl to remain Drake's girlfriend for more than one episode.
  • Megan only appears in one scene, thus having a minor role in the episode.
  • This episode was included on the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Winners Collection DVD, in which a scene was shown at 2007 Kids' Choice Awards.
  • When Josh is dating the girls at the Premiere, the background music played is called Here I Go Again and is performed by singer Jessa.
  • Audrey teaches Josh how-to pick-up girls, so it is understood that this is how Drake is able to pick up girls' as well.
  • This is the first of two times an actual theater is shown at The Premiere.
  • In the scene where Drake and Carly are hanging out in Drake's living room, the instrumental that they are listening to is that of the song that Drake plays with his band at the old folks' home in Drake & Josh Go Hollywood.
  • Audrey is at first against the idea of Drake and Josh using girls as points in a contest, but after hearing that Josh really wants to prove that he can get as much dates as Drake, she is motivated to help him achieve that, meaning Audrey was rooting for Josh in the competition.
  • Mrs. Futch mentions that her cat is dead though it is not stated how it died.
    • It is likely it died of old age or had a disease.
  • This is another episode that proves that Drake is not above lying, extorting, stealing, framing Josh, or just plain cheating to get his way. Examples of this include in the intro, where Drake purposefully jumps off the table in the bedroom to startle Josh downstairs and make him wreck his canned tuna pyramid before he can complete it.
    • Another example of this is where Drake tries to make Josh back out of the contest before he "embarrasses himself", so that Josh would lose. A good example of when he stole from Josh is in the episode My Dinner with Bobo where Drake and Josh plan on getting a car, but Drake spends all of their money on Bobo using their car money, plus the money he stole from Josh's special money box.
    • A good example of where Drake cheats and tricks Josh is in the sequence after the intro, where Drake and Josh decide to settle who gets the car by running around the block and the winner gets the keys and car, and Drake cheats and the minute Josh leaves by not only stealing the keys but cheats even further by driving the car around the block and honking the car as he drives off to a gig.
  • In some scenes at Spin City where Drake is trying to apologize to Carly, if you look closely, you will see a poster of See You on the Other Side by Korn, which was released on December 6, 2005, one year before this episode was released.
  • It is 3:00 am in the final scene of the episode when Josh fell off Drake's deck and the duo decides to switch back beds.
  • Drake seemingly liked Carly so much that he had intended to have a long-term relationship with her, thus making Carly the first girl that Drake was serious about dating.


  • In the opening comment when Drake is painting the portrait of Abraham Lincoln wearing a bikini, the rules didn't say that Drake had to do a background and Drake could have gotten done a lot earlier. However, it's likely that Drake painted the background by choice.
  • If the terms of the bet are taken literally, the old woman could not count as a date since the bet was about who could date the most girls, and a girl is by definition a juvenile.
  • In real life the old lady would have died since Josh put soda in her I.V. bag.
  • Early on in the episode, Josh stated some rules for the bet. One of them was that you couldn't see the same girl more than once. When Drake was in the Premiere trying to get Josh to call the bet off, he mentioned that he and Carly had hung out all day the previous day and all day of that day and were also going to have a date that night. According to the rules, Drake lost the bet, but yet Josh still drags the bet on all week.
  • Near the end of the episode, Josh is seen standing inside the Premiere counter, even though he's not wearing his red vest.
    • He likely either forgot it or it was his day off.
  • 150 is not a Py radical number, so you can't stack 150 cans of tuna into a pyramid.
  • In this episode, we see that Josh has a perfect attendance award. However, Josh skips school with Drake to spy on their dad in "The Affair". Josh even mentioned that he didn't want to ruin his perfect attendance in that episode. There is a possibility, however, that Josh was let off because he revealed to the faculty that Drake tempted him into skipping school.
  • The part about Josh getting blamed for running into Mrs. Futch's mailbox when it was actually Drake was mentioned in a later episode in the introduction. That is Season 4 episode 13. This is season 4 episode 5. Unless it’s being listed in production order.
    • Xfinity/Comcast however call that Season 4 episode 12 by mistake.
