Okay, I'm about to say something controversial. Maybe not having devices isn't the worst thing.
—Georgie to Harley

Stuck without Devices is the eighth episode in season 2 of Stuck in the Middle and the 25th episode overall. It aired on April 21, 2017 to 1.00 million viewers.


The kids must entertain themselves for an entire weekend without using technology or devices.


When Suzy gets sick of the kids spending too much time on their mobile devices, she confiscates the devices from them. The kids have to entertain themselves without devices for the entire weekend. Rachel gets upset and goes to lie on her bed. Harley is upset too until Georgie returns home and convinces her that maybe not having a phone all the time isn't such a bad thing.

So, Georgie and Harley go outside and start playing the games they used to play when they were little. While lying down after playing Double Dutch using Harley's Robo Roper, Georgie gets a text message from Wyatt. She still has her phone because she arrived home late when her mom was taking devices. In the text, Wyatt asks for them to hang out. Georgie doesn't know how to respond; so they agree to go with an emoji. Unfortunately, she sends a poop emoji instead of a thumbs up. Before she can correct it, her mom takes away the phone. Harley and Georgie come up with a creative way to send a message to Wyatt without using their devices. When Wyatt comes over, Georgie starts playing jump rope with him, leaving Harley out. Harley becomes jealous of Wyatt and confronts Georgie about it. The girls start fighting passive aggressively in rhyme in front of Wyatt.

Lewie and Beast go to Rachel's room and pressure her to play a game with them. The game is called To The Limit and involves competing to see who can annoy the most Diazes by pushing them to the limit until they snap. At first, Rachel doesn't want them talking to her but then they reveal that the losers will get to do the winner's chores for a week. Rachel agrees to participate. They start annoying their family members, including Ethan, who is trying to work on a magic show with Daphne. At the end of the game, they realize that they're all tied. So, with no other Diazes left to annoy, they decide to use Wyatt to break the tie. They all run outside and start throwing water balloons at Wyatt. Wyatt and Georgie's fun time ends in disaster.

Georgie is upset by how her family, especially Harley, acted in front of Wyatt. Harley explains that she is worried that Georgie will stop playing with her just like Rachel stopped playing with them when she grew boy crazy. Georgie apologizes for choosing Wyatt over her sister, promising Harley that she will always be there for her.

At the end of the day during the family picnic, Suzy, having dealt with enough of the kids' antics, decides to give back their devices so no more trouble is caused.

Even if I have a mister, no one can replace my sister.
—Georgie to Harley
Well, you know what they say. If you love something, set it free. On the other hand, in a big family, if you love something, grab it before someone else takes it.
Rachel: Mom! Where's the thing you normally keep by the thing?
Suzy Rachel, what did I say about you shouting from the other room? Come here if you want to talk to me.
Rachel: I can't hear you. I'm looking for the thing!
Suzy: I have no idea what you're talking about! You're driving me crazy!
—Rachel pushing Suzy to the limit
Georgie: Georgie and Harls jumpin' that rope,
Harley: Spitting out rhymes that are awesome and dope.
