Season 16 Episode 18
South by Southwest is in full swing and the roomies are busy gathering footage for their documentary. First up is the band Halifax, whom everyone seems to like except for Lacey. When the band chills at the Real World house, Rachel develops a little crush on lead singer Mike. This leads her to drunkenly show off for him, diving into the basketball game and pulling it off the wall and breaking it. The sight of a broken basketball game brings out gloomy faces in the boys. Nehemiah blows a gasket and begins to belittle Rachel, which sends her into tears. The next morning Danny, Wes and Rachel hit the road to film the band Hellogoodbye at their campsite. While in the car, Danny mentions how much trash Lacey talks about everyone behind their back. After not being able to find the band, the three return home to a call from Forrest, the lead singer, wondering where they are. Lucky for them the band is camping the next day as well, but Rachel tries to pass off the interview to Lacey's team. Lacey, however, is having none of that. At any rate, Rachel, Danny, and Mel's second attempt to get Hellogoodbye on tape is a success. In celebration, Danny decides to take a leap off a cliff and convinces Mel to jump with him. Back at the editing room, Rachel comes across some surprising footage of Lacey talking smack about Rachel. The gang agrees that Rachel needs to confront Lacey about the footage and adds some educated guesses as to what she is going to say. Rachel shows Lacey the footage abd Lacey answers exactly as the roomies predicted. They should really use their powers for good.
