Grammy is the sixth episode of Drake & Josh. It aired on February 22, 2004.


When Audrey, Walter and Megan leave the house for the weekend, Drake and Josh's hopes and dreams of a parent-free weekend are dashed when Josh's Grandma comes to babysit, much to Drake's dismay and Josh's delight. Drake really wants to go to the Rock Shock concert, but his parents forbid it. Also, his bandmates can't go either because the tickets are all sold out, but they decided to hang out at Drake's house after Drake tells them that he is not allowed to go to the Rock Shock concert anyway. Then, Grammy gives Josh a $50 bill and gives Drake $2 off his next haircut and then Grammy tapes "Lazy punk" on Drake's back when she's see a sign that said "Itchy Butt" on Josh's back (when it was really Megan who put it on.)

Grammy makes a deal with Drake - if he beats her at a basketball game, he can go with his friends, as long as he nor his friends won't go to that Rock Shock concert. He wins but breaks Grammy's promise and goes to the concert with his friends anyway after his friends told Drake that they finally got tickets for the concert tonight, but once there, he finds out that the tickets his friends had are counterfeit because Scotty just illegally copied pictures of the tickets not the real thing and are detained. Drake calls Josh and make him promise not to tell Grammy about the problem he in. Unfortunately Josh comes in with Grammy and Josh explained that Grammy found out because she was listening though the other phone in the kitchen which upsets Drake.

Grammy has to pay a $200 fine and is disgusted after found out what Drake, Scottie, Rina and Paul had done tonight. She inadvertently reveals that she let Drake win so he could go with his friends. Drake doesn't believe her and decides to play again, under the condition that if he wins, no one tells his parents about the concert.

Grammy agrees if he agrees to tell his parents himself if he loses. Drake soon realizes that Grammy was telling the truth and is forced to explain about Rock Shock that he went with Rina, Paul and Scottie without his parents knowing nor Rina, Paul and Scottie's own parents finds out, but Grammy stops him, seeing as he paid back the $200 and was willing to tell them, instead explaining that she beat Drake at basketball.
