The Storm is the eighth episode of the fourth season of Drake & Josh. It aired on January 7, 2007.


Josh buys a bus to take Drake, his band and their friends to their concert (Josh makes no further appearances in this episode), but Walter's inaccurate weather predictions cause an incoming storm to catch them by surprise. So, everyone stays at their house as the show was canceled. The lights eventually go out all over San Diego.

Megan reunites Drake's girlfriend, Carly, and his two ex-girlfriends, Lucy and Christine keep talking and laughing. This makes Drake nervous about the universe "exploding", and he tries to eavesdrop on them.

Gavin flirts with Audrey and Walter's angry boss, Mr. Galloway, forces him to do a forecasting, but he is left alone and two men rob him. As the crankable television breaks, everyone sings We Will Rock You (by Queen), ending the episode.



  • This is the first (and only) episode where Drake and Josh's house is the only setting.
  • Josh gets a bus for the band. He mentions he got the bus from, which redirects to
  • Walter thinks the word touché is pronounced "toosh". He made the same mistake in the episode "Driver's License".
  • Drake has a different band in every season.
  • Josh only appeared in the first scene of this episode, speaking only 110 words, marking his most minor appearance in any episode to date.
  • Drake mentions "Spin City Records" and Gavin mentions "B.F. Wangs", which is a parody of P.F. Chang's.
  • At the end of the episode, everyone sings "We will rock you". However, in some DVD versions everyone sings "Let's get this party started".
  • Crazy Steve watches a "Dora The Explorer" episode called, "Louder!".


  • Mr. Galloway was obviously angry at Walter for his wrong weather predictions. But still it should be noted that he had put an employee weatherman's health at risk by making Walter stand outside in the pouring rain and do a live broadcast. Walter could have easily gotten sick with flu or an awful case of pneumonia.
  • Audrey was obviously in a state of confusion because of the fact that the roof leaking meant that she would pay alot to get the ceiling fixed. But still it should be noted she almost put Drake's life at risk by trying to make Drake go up to the roof to fix the leak in the middle of a storm as he could have been badly injured or even died trying to do so.
  • The party was Josh throwing it as a surprise for Drake and his band but when Drake was talking to Eric about his ex girlfriends being at the party, Drake said that should not have happened because he invited Carly to the party. How did Drake invite Carly if the party was a surprise?
