After coming back from a magic show with the kids, Jessie meets a guy namedBrodywhich everyone seems to love except for Zuri who wants Tony and Jessie to be together.Tony tries to impress Jessie, but all to no avail, so Zuri takes matters into her own hands.

Before Jessie leaves for her date with Brody,Zuri tells her a bedtime story in order to convince her that Tony is the right one for her. In the story,it's medieval times and Jessie is a princess waiting for true love. Tony comes to her to show her his new invention the dolley and falls for her. But Prince Smarming (Brody) comes and Jessie falls for him instead. Sadly, Tony goes to Ravi's character in the story, a powerful wizard, looking for an irresistibility potion to get Jessie to fall in love with him. This potion doesn't work out so he searches for new ways to impress her. Brody challenges Tony to a duel, which he loses, but when a dragon comes, (Mr. Kipling), Tony is the one that defeats it while Brody runs away after wetting his metal pants in embarrassment and in humiliation. When she finishes telling the story, Bertram exposes to the kids, Tony and Jessie that Brody is already dating another girl. Jessie hears this and furiously makes him leave as Brody gets easily scared with the snake that fell on top him from the top elevator after accepting a date with Tony.
