Truth or Consequences is the Fifth episode from Season 1 of All Grown Up!


Tommy becomes excited when he learns about an upcoming film contest that is going to be judged by his favorite director, Martin Costomiris. His parents, Didi and Stu, encourage him to enter, but Tommy is unsure of what kind of movie he wants to make. Eventually he decides on a sci-fi thriller about aliens, staring his friends. However, he quickly becomes frustrated by his friends constant bickering and unprofessionalism. He realises that filming his friends’ secret conversations to make candids is more film worthy than his sci-fi thriller. When reviewing the footage, Dil tells Tommy he does not think that entering the footage about their friends’ secrets would be a very good idea. Angelica comes over one day demanding to see the tape when Tommy is not home. When Angelica sees the tapes she calls over the whole gang to watch it, who except for Chuckie and Dil, are all outraged that Tommy would consider entering their private moments into the competition. Tommy refuses to destroy the tape and his friends storm out and give Tommy the cold shoulder for the next couple of days. The film Tommy enters for the competition, A Day before the Day of the Life of My Friends, features bloopers from his earlier attempt at making a movie and clips of the gang as babies. Tommy did not win the competition but he got a picture of him with his favourite director and he got his friends back. Meanwhile, Vice Principal Pangborn wants to spend more time observing Dil’s behaviour as he finds it disturbing. However, his attempts to delve into Dil’s mind using traditional methods are frustrating. Pangborn calls Stu and Didi into his office and tells them that he recommends Dil have some counselling. Didi is outraged that Pangborn would consider changing her son into a generic boy without any originality. She praises Dil for seeing the world differently and storms out, leaving Pangborn cowering behind a file shelf.
