Drake Parker (Drake Bell) is a cool and popular teenager while Josh Nichols (Josh Peck) is a geeky teenager whom Drake describes as unusual.

Josh is thrilled about having a new stepbrother, but Drake is not. Drake is even less excited when he finds out that Josh is Miss Nancy, the anonymous advice columnist for the school newspaper, and that Josh believes he must dress like a woman to adequately write his advice. Drake then uses this to get a date with Tiffany Margolis (Julie Gonzalo), who wrote to Miss Nancy. But Josh gets in trouble when her angered boyfriend Buck (Joey Mendicino) thinks she is on a date with Josh instead and challenges him to a fight. Josh trains all day under a karate instructor but still ends up getting knocked out with one punch.

Drake and Josh then fully repair the dune buggy, to the surprise of their parents, who forbid them from driving it. Drake secretly drives it with Trevor anyway and crashes. Drake attempts to conceal his bruises and the damages to the dune buggy, but Josh eventually finds out when he gets a call from the emergency room and confronts Drake about it, angry that all Drake cares about is keeping the accident and his injuries a secret from their parents. Racked with guilt, Drake confesses to Walter and Audrey, and they ground Drake for two weeks, much to Josh's delight. However, due to Drake's injury, his "grounding" is simply staying home from school, resting, and making Josh be his servant.

Drake eventually learns the truth when Megan inserts a video of Susan flirting with Josh (along with many other embarrassing shots of Drake and Josh) into their music video project.

Josh is glad to have Grammy around, but Drake does not like her. Drake wants to attend a concert with his friends, but Grammy forbids him from going and his friends also cannot go, because the tickets are sold out. However, they make a deal in which Drake can spend time with his friends if he beats Grammy in a basketball game, as long as he does not attend the concert. Drake wins the game, but is forced to break his promise out of peer-pressure when his friends are able to get tickets for the concert. Once there, they find out the tickets they have are actually counterfeit, and are detained at the venue until Grammy pays a $200 fine to release them. Grammy then reveals that she let Drake win so he could go with his friends. Drake does not believe her and decides to play again, under the condition that if he wins, no one tells his parents about the concert. Grammy agrees on the condition that if he loses, he will tell his parents about the concert. Drake loses the game, but when his parents come home, Grammy stops him from telling his parents, seeing as he paid back the $200 and was willing to tell them, and that was a good enough punishment for her (Grammy instead tells Drake's parents that she beat Drake at basketball). Drake finally accepts Grammy and they hug each other goodbye, with Grammy secretly sticking an envelope onto Drake's back paying him back the $200 he gave her.
