Without that signature page, you'll have a month of unexcused absences.

The Note is the sixth episode in the first season of Milo Murphy's Law. It first aired on October 17, 2016.[1]

Episode Synopsis

Milo and the gang spend the entire morning chasing after his doctor's note. [2]


As Milo, Melissa, and Zack are on their way to school, Milo reveals that he is carrying a huge doctor's note that accounts for all his doctor-excused absences in the recent month. After an encounter with Elliot Decker, Milo loses the signature page with the doctor's single signature, without which his absences will go unexcused forcing him to repeat the seventh grade. The trio set out to recover the cover page, unaware that they could easily obtain a new signature from the doctor, who is playing golf at a nearby course. The trail leads them into a large office building, through a ticker-tape parade monitored by a government agency, and finally into a large recycling plant.

After a long search that terminates in a near miss for Melissa, the trio recover what they thought was Milo's note only to find that it's made out for one Lola Sunderguard. Lola herself then appears with her friends, with the group resembling Milo and his entourage down to a pet pig resembling Diogee. Milo's dog then proves to have the cover page for the note, and the government agents temporarily disintegrate Elliot when he impedes the trio's progress once again. Meanwhile, Milo's doctor is shown to be conversing with a fellow golfer and admits - after denying it earlier - that he is a doctor.
