Disney XD's Lab Rats Wiki
I really can't breathe, get me out!
— Chase to Davenport and Adam

"Bro Down" is the 6th episode in Season 2 of Lab Rats. It first aired on April 1, 2013. This is the 26th episode overall. It features the discovery of Bree's Vocal Manipulation.


Chase pulls a prank on Adam, ending with Adam dislocating his arm. Adam then gets worried because the world is so dangerous. He quits the team because he doesn't want to get hurt. Chase and Bree realize they can't complete missions without Adam, so Chase and Davenport come up with a plan to get back on the team, but things go wrong and Chase gets hurt. Meanwhile, Bree discovers her secret ability, and gets grounded for using it to make fun of Principal Perry. Leo and Bree later get grounded at home.


Chase gets angry at Adam for punching and throwing him around, so he pulls a prank on Adam. However, this leads to Adam dislocating his shoulder. Realizing how dangerous the world is, Adam decides he won't go on any more missions. Davenport gets Chase to try to convince Adam to rejoin the team, but Adam doesn't regret his decision.    

Meanwhile, Bree discovers a hidden ability. She can mimic other people's voices once hearing them. Davenport warns Bree not to use her new ability at school, joking that it may not be a hidden ability, but just that puberty really hates her.    

At school the next day, Leo convinces Bree to use her hidden ability, causing her to hide behind him and say unflattering things pretending to be Leo. She then mimics Principal Perry once, but is hooked and can't stop. However, Bree gets into trouble when Principal Perry catches her and asks how she does it. When Bree glitches from being nervous, she mimics a bunch of weird sounds including her brothers' voices. Principal Perry calls Davenport in her office, but Bree uses her super-speed to answer the phone back at her house and pretends to be Davenport. She then quickly speeds back to school, "talks" to Davenport, then tells Perry he "hung up". Principal Perry goes to her office and calls Davenport again, saying that "I hate it when people hang up on me!". Bree speeds back home and mimics Davenport again, only to find that Davenport had went to the school and wanted to know what was going on. When they get home, Bree and Leo are grounded.    

Meanwhile, Davenport and Chase come up with a new plan to trick Adam into joining the team again. Adam notices Chase, supposedly "trapped in his capsule and dying from asphyxiation (lack of oxygen)", but Adam doesn't fall for it. He knows that if Chase were really dying of asphyxiation, he would be gasping for air and screaming in terror. Adam then accidentally turns on the heat sanitizer of the capsule, locking Chase in his capsule that is capable of reaching over 200 degrees in sanitation mode, but at first Adam believes it is still part of their plan to get him back on the team. He then realizes that Chase is gasping for air and screaming in terror and is slowly fainting, so Adam quickly uses his good arm to smash open the capsule before picking up Chase and lifting him up on his shoulder and out of the capsule. Chase points out that Adam just did something very dangerous. Adam agrees, saying that he did it without thinking. Davenport adds that he should stop overthinking everything, and Adam rejoins the team.

Adam: Wow! All I have to do is spend my whole life not thinking!

Chase & Donald: Absolutely.

— Adam, Chase, and Donald
Chase: Life is about getting hurt. I get hurt all the time, but I don't go overboard and quit.

Adam: Yeah, but you're SUPPOSED to get hurt. I'm a huge, muscular, beastly man. For me it's just unnatural.

— Chase and Adam
Bree, remember when I told you that strange things might be happening to your bionics? Well, it looks like you have uncovered one of your hidden abilities. Either that or puberty has been VERY unkind to YOU.
— Donald to Bree
Now let's see how YOU like being relentlessly manhandled.
— Chase
Chase: Adam is always punching me and throwing me around.

Adam: Yeah, but when I do it, it's funny.

— Chase and Adam
The last time she turned that red, the janitor had to take her down with a tranquilizer gun - and it took three shots.
— Leo about Perry
Perry: Attention, students!
Bree: (using Perry's voice) I have an important announcement: I'm a leprechaun.
Perry: What? Who said that? It's not true, I just like to run after rainbows.
Bree: (Perry's voice) I also have six toes on one foot.
Perry: It's not a sixth toe, it's an overgrown bunion. And it gives me the balance of a low land gorilla. I don't know who's doing this, but when I catch you, you're gonna pay!
Bree: (Perry's voice) But not with me gold coins.
Bree and Perry
Leo: Trap.
Adam: Trap what? (The trap is activated) Whoa! (...) Oh, the trap was the floor.
Leo and Adam
