At the point in the divorce proceedings Darryl and his ex-wife Stacy were trying to figure out custody arrangements for their 11 year old daughter Madison. Upon interviewing Madison Rebecca found out a secret Stacy had that could turn the tide of the case in Darryl's favor. Further research resulted in the discovery of evidence backing this up on Madison's YouTube channel. It was called the "Snailysitters Club" and featured Madison vlogging on her pets. Rebecca called an emergency hearing in order present this to the judge.
The parties involved in the divorce proceedings met in the judges chamber to view the YouTube video Madison uploaded. In it she mentioned she was home alone with her pet snails and about to cook some s'mores on a gas stove. Meanwhile she also stated her mother was at a motel with her boss just like last Friday. Because of this the judge immediately gave temporary full custody to Darryl. While they were dealing with this, Paula was put in charge of the office and had to deal with an unruly staff. This included Karen who was annoying everyone with her obsession with tampons. Karen herself had a YouTube channel called "Getting Real With Karen". One of her uploads was a review of a menstrual cup ("Josh and I Are Good People!").

Her neighbor in 7B managed to take a photo of the aftermath once the fireman came. The 911 recording along with the photo was uploaded on a YouTube account called PSALM41743241. It was titled "Crazy Lady 911 Call" and the video quickly became popular receiving 11,740 views by the following morning ("When Will Josh and His Friend Leave Me Alone?").

Maya and Darryl went to Rebecca's house and performed the routine in tandem in front if everyone that was there. This includes Valencia Perez who filmed the dance on using her phone and later uploaded it online. The video made its way to YouTube where it received 1800 views.
