Casey and Daffney

Plot Summary

Daffney buys tickets to a water rodeo while Casey purchases tickets to the hocky playoffs. Meanwhile, Dr. Gallio is observing some bobfish, and while they poorly express their friendship by fighting, they're really close friends. Casey and Daffney show each other the tickets, but there's only one small problem - they're held on the same day! The two girls argue over where to go and that they always do what the others want to do. This little argument causes them to seperate. Later that same afternoon, Daffney dresses up for the rodeo, and Jimmy Bob assumes she's a performer there, so she rides on a seahorse. Meanwhile, Casey goes to the playoffs with the others (and Junior tagging along behind). 

While at the rodeo, Daffney thinks about Casey and her riding horses at a carnival when they were small children. The Snorkette cheerleaders play at the playoffs, but all Casey can think about is the time her and Daffney were cheerleaders, which didn't go so well. Both girls keep thinking about the other, and Daffney tries her hand at riding Shelley the seahorse. However, Shelley goes out of control, and it's even interrupted the hockey game. The snorks go off to find her before she heads into Vertical Valley. Arriving there just in the nick of time, Casey helps Daffney control the horse. They learn that their friendship is more important than some silly argument, and when they all go to the movies together, they don't care if they see the same movie for the third time.
