The episode opens during a rehearsal of Mellowbrook Elementary School's production of Romeo and Juliet, with Ronaldo and Kendall playing the title roles. Among a small handful of students watching the rehearsal, Kick watches in boredom as both players practice reading their lines, complaining that he "can't handle any more drama."
In his attempt to escape the auditorium (he springboards off his seat towards the exit), he is stopped by Mr. Huang, the school's drama teacher. Mr. Huang encourages Kick to take theater seriously, and assigns him the role of Ronaldo's understudy - in case anything ever happens to Ronaldo, Kick becomes the new Romeo.
Worried about playing the lead alongside Kendall, Kick makes every effort to protect Ronaldo from danger, and becomes his bodyguard in disguise. But once Ronaldo figures out his motive for protecting him, he uses it to bribe Kick into helping him do whatever he pleases.
At the play's opening night, Kick is seen backstage with Mr. Huang, relieved that Ronaldo is safe and performing on-stage. Suddenly, a sandbag falls on Ronaldo, leaving Kick to fill the role as Romeo.
