Raven gets invited to a convention for Devon's favorite show, "Astro Force 5". Raven doesn't want to go, but when she has a vision of Devon nuzzling with another girl, she and Chelsea crash the convention -- in disguise, of course. Eddie also crashes the convention, but he intends to meet a female star on the show whom he has a crush on. As it turns out, nuzzling is just the traditional greeting on "Astro Force 5". Meanwhile, Cory has a new money scheme -- pretending to read the minds of animals.



Guest Starring


  • When Devon's last name is announced, the closed captioning says "Turner" instead of "Carter."
  • When Victor and Tanya walk into the kitchen and William comes downstairs to greet them, if you look closely, you can see William waiting at the top of the stairs waiting for his cue to come downstairs.


Eddie (about Horace's outfit): Check out Horace, y'all. Looks like he was just beamed down from Planet Dweeb.
Raven: It's official, there are no mirrors in outer space.
Chelsea: Excuse me, but I think it's wrong to judge a man based on the color of his spacesuit.
Chelsea: I've got two eyebrows!
Raven: Not when I'm done with you!
Chelsea: Rae, which one are you gonna take?
Cory (to Victor): Okay, you got me and I got you. Now we're even.
Victor: Not even close. You're grounded.
