She soon makes up her mistakes to each child except Emma, who is upset that her parents can't attend her science fair. Jessie goes to the movie set where Morgan and Christina are, telling them that they need to spend more time with their kids, as their presence is important in their lives; this move gets her fired. Nevertheless, she attends Emma's science fair to support her. However, Emma's parents show up to the science fair as well, having taken Jessie's advice.

Jessie resolves the matter by telling her that Mr. Kipling "ate" the imaginary friend, convincing Zuri that the imaginary friend is gone. Meanwhile, Luke and Emma work together on a school photo class project, and their disagreements get them into a scuffle. In the end, Luke makes an amazing action shot involving Mr. Kipling flicking a hawk away with his tail, earning them an A.

Ravi then plays his own pranks on Luke, leading Luke to be miserable afterwards, and begs Ravi to fix his bad karma, but Ravi immediately stops once Jessie starts asking questions making her suspicious that Ravi did something bad to his brother, and so Jessie gives him her "guilty look", forcing Ravi to confess exactly what he did to Luke. After Ravi finally convinces Luke that he is free from karma, Luke affectionately declares him a really good brother. Jessie makes Ravi promise that the next time they have a problem, they will talk it out as a family.

Meanwhile, Zuri invites Emma to her tea party, but Emma turns down the invitation when her friend Jasmine gives her a free pass to a fashion show.

Despite trying to fit in, Ravi's first unexpected attempt to embarrass Luke led him to lie to his friends about Ravi (Luke's "dad's friend's cousin's dog's neighbor"), because of his geeky cricket uniform. After that, Jessie gives Ravi advice on how to fit in and still be himself, but Ravi takes Jessie's advice a little too seriously, which makes him dress and act exactly like Luke, inadequately involving a school bully against him. Because of Ravi's second unexpected attempt to embarrass his brother, Luke becomes angry and tells Ravi that their brotherhood is over at school, which Emma warns Jessie about the next day only to distract her from looking at her high-heel shoes. Later on, during lunchtime in the cafeteria, the same school bully threatens Ravi into paying a price, which makes Luke feel guilty about what he said to Ravi the previous day.

Finally, Jessie decides to take the Ross kids (except Luke, who is grounded) to the Annual Multicultural Fair in Battery Park. Unfortunately, on the way there, Jessie has a hard time finding the right train going to Battery Park, which leads her and Emma, Ravi, + Zuri getting lost in all other directions. After getting lost for the second time, Jessie leads Zuri into the train, but inadequately leaves Emma and Ravi behind in a German train station where they both meet a tall man named Fritz, who teaches them how to dance. Finally, after 20 minutes, Jessie and Zuri find Emma and Ravi (and so Ravi stops freaking out), and they enter the train together this time. To Emma's anxious surprise, Jessie is upset to find out that Ravi and Zuri never got to see what they wanted because of Jessie's unexplainable navigation issues, but Emma reassures her by showing the reactions on both Ravi and Zuri's happy faces, which cheers her up. Meanwhile, back at the penthouse, Luke starts break-dancing again, but he hears a scream coming from the kitchen, so it must have been Bertram, because no one else was at home. Bertram falls unconscious at the sight of a poisonous spider called the speckled recluse (according to Bertram, the "deadliest spider on the planet!"), so both of them try and get rid of it by using their "winging-it" ideas (mostly Luke's), leading them to their final plan: dressing up like exterminators, but the spider escapes, until Mr. Kipling quickly eats it in one bite. After all that chaos, Bertram and Luke are relieved to see that there are no more spiders lurking around the kitchen, but they were both WRONG: When Luke decided to watch a movie with the butler, they find 2000 more spiders on a huge web blocking the screening room doorway, leading the duo in great shock. In the end, Jessie and the kids return home JUST to see Luke and Bertram chasing each other with the spiders (which turned out to be the recluse's orphan children).

Later on, Morgan and Christina tells them that his birth certificate had a typo and instead of Ravi being born in the year 2001, it said 2011, so that is why the Ross' were expecting a baby. In the end, Ravi forgives Morgan and Christina for the mishap, and they give Zuri a zebra as a "Gotcha Day" present. 
2626"The Secret Life of Mr. Kipling"[30][31]Eric Dean SeatonPamela Eells O'ConnellSeptember 7, 2012 (2012-09-07)125[32]3.6[33]

Mr. Kipling has been acting strangely for some time. He is mean to Ravi and has been having weird food cravings. It is revealed that Mr. Kipling is a female lizard guarding her twelve babies, and this startles the entire Ross family. Meanwhile, Zuri is upset when she announces that Millie the Mermaid has died (she accidentally got stabbed by a swordfish). The mailman accidentally ships Mr. Kipling's eggs to a restaurant. Jessie, Ravi, and Luke pretend to be waiters and try to get them back. At the restaurant, the eggs hatch and twelve little lizards are born. The episode ends with the entire family, including Bertram, attending Millie the Mermaid's funeral.

Notes: Ravi claims that Mr. Kipling had babies because of the lizard she met in the episode, "We Are So Grounded". Bertram reveals Zuri's middle name, Zanobia. 

Season 2: 2012

On March 11, 2012, it was announced that Jessie has been renewed for a second season and a telefilm is in development.[34] They started filming on July 9, 2012.
