Unfortunately for Maya, the bathroom is on Miguel’s side. Unfortunately for Miguel, the umbrellas are on Maya’s side, and it’s raining. Splitting the apartment turns out to be harder than they thought!

In the end, they learn from Tito (an only child) what a gift it is to have a sibling.

He fumes and blames Maya and her “big ideas,” which always cause grief. Maya defends her big ideas, while also promising Miguel to get him to the game on time.

Through it all, Maya asserts that the reason her ideas work is that she believes in the person she’s trying to help. In the end, they make it to the game, Miguel helps his team win the Championship, and he finally admits that Maya’s ideas are big and beautiful.
