17 headsup
Tawni and Sonny were excited to know that Jackson Tyler of the Tri-Dark saga would be coming to guest star in So Random!'. Due to unknown circumstances, however, he had to cancel, and Marshal brought Chad onto the So Random! stage instead. After Sonny came back with Chad's sammich, Chad warned Sonny that she will fall in love with him by the end of the week, just like all of his other leading ladies. On another side of the studio, Nico and Grady were given free reign over Marshall's office for the entire week, because Chad would be using their dressing room instead. They of course started abusing it despite Marshall's severe warning.

During their first rehearsal, Chad kept on insisting that Sonny would fall in love with him by the end of the week. According to him, she'll start getting nervous, stumble, dream about him, get lost in his eyes, and that she'll finally get hooked after they kiss. Sonny didn't take it seriously until she had a dream about Chad running lines with her carrying two tubes of lip balm only for him to show up like that a few moments after she wakes up. She asked Tawni for advice, who told her to wear a sombrero. Chad, however, saw through this plan and made her take off the hat, and she ends up getting lost in Chad's eyes anyway. Marshall then went up to them and said that he was going to rewrite the sketch, ending it with a kissing scene instead.

Sonny came to Tawni in order to convince her to do the sketch instead, which she agreed to. However, when Nico and Grady failed to give Tawni a new stock of her Cocoa Moco Cocoa lipstick, she decided to not do the sketch anymore. Sonny then had no choice but to do the sketch with Chad. Before the show started, Nico and Grady apologized to Marshall for abusing his office and made him hold the pig that they

got after ordering pigs in a blanket, only to get an actual pig in an actual blanket. During the sketch itself, Marshall accidentally dropped the pig into a trampoline, where it flew right onto Sonny's lap. Sonny made the pig kiss Chad instead of her, and the sketch ends. The pig later ends up having a dream about Chad, just like he said Sonny would.
