Season 1 » Episode #03 - Used Karma
Summary: After Jessie accepts an invitation for lunch with Tony, the building's doorman, Emma offers Jessie unsolicited dating advice she has learned from her stash of teen magazines. In the end Jessie andTony are "just friends." Meanwhile, Ravi becomes the target of Luke’s practical jokes. And Ravi makes sure that Luke gets his karma back.
Jessie has a horrible nightmare about a giant version of Mr. Kipling, the pet lizard attacking, her. She wakes up to find it was just a dream, until she discovers the real Mr. Kipling in her bed. Ravidefends him, saying that he gets bored locked in his cage all day.
Emma needs help from Jessie because she loves her photography class, but is partnered with her lazy brother, Luke on their next project. “You call it lazy - I call it selective participation,“ he tells her.
Jessie has an idea that will help everyone. She brings the kids to the park so Emma and Luke can work on their project and Ravi can walk Mr. Kipling. The big problem is getting out before Mrs. Chesterfield, the scary President of the Condo Board who is creepily attached to her little dog, sees Mr. Kipling. The kids manage to do it with the help of Tony, the young doorman.
At the park, Emma and Luke find the perfect photography subject, a rare Hudson Valley Hawk, and set up a stake out on the roof to get a photo of it.
On their way back from the park, they run into Mrs. Chesterfield in the lobby who gets hysterical about how a “vicious cold blooded reptile” is not allowed to live in the building. Now Ravi is afraid that his best friend will be taken away from him.
Zuri is also having a problem with a new invisible friend named Genevieve who pushes her and rips the heads off of her dolls. Jessie gives her the advice to “kill her with kindness,” which is exactly what she plans to do with Mrs. Chesterfield. She brings her "I’m-sorry-you-almost-got-eaten-by-a-giant-lizard-but-please-let-him-stay-cause-it-would-mean-so-much-to-a-little-boy" cookies, better known as Pecan Sandies. Mrs. Chesterfield bites into a pecan shell and breaks her tooth. She blames Jessie and calls Animal Control to take Mr. Kipling away.
Ravi and Jessie try to sneak Mr. Kipling out of the building with Tony’s help before the Animal Control men arrive, but then they lose him in the lobby. Mrs. Chesterfield arrives at the Ross’ apartment and Zuri uses her adorable sass to hold up her search to get rid of Mr. Kipling. The kids then spot him on Mrs. Chesterfield’s balcony slowly inching his way toward her precious pup. Jessie and Ravi run down to her apartment to get him just as the hawk Emma and Luke have been watching finally moves.
The hawk almost attacks Mrs. Chesterfield’s dog, and Mr. Kipling saves the dog with a flick of his tail (Emma and Luke get a picture of it which results in an A on their project). She allows him to stay in the apartment complex when she realizes how hard it would be to live without her own pet.
