When the pair is unable to wake themselves, they conclude Simon must have something to do with the body switch as both began to feel weird after seeing him. After experiencing a recollection of Simon working on a new invention, Alvin and Jeanette confront the blue-clad chipmunk, who doesn't believe them for he was certain the device was a failure. Alvin provides proof and Simon fakes an illness in order to stay home and rebuild the ray. At school, Alvin and Jeanette switch schedules and begin living the other's life. During which "Jeanette" tells Brittany that Alvin's always right and "Alvin" learns he has to fight Derek. Meanwhile, Simon tests his rebuilt invention in his closet room only to mistakenly switch places with a cat. Alvin and Jeanette chase the cat down so Simon can switch back into his body while Alvin and Jeanette go back to school. "Jeanette" wants "Alvin" to fight Derek, to save his reputation, while "Alvin" wants to talk to him. When talking fails, Alvin refuses to let Jeanette get hurt to protect his reputation, but Derek still wants to fight. Simon arrives just in time to switch Alvin and Jeanette back into their bodies only for Alvin and Derek to swap places.

At the end of the day, Jeanette learns from Brittany that when Alvin was in her body, he made a comment to her that he is always right, which annoys Jeanette.
