Pilot is the first episode of the series Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn. It premiered on September 13, 2014 to an audience of 1.60 views.
When the Harper quadruplets - Nicky, Ricky, Dicky and Dawn - break into a fight during a chemistry lab experiment at school causing a huge mess, the school calls in their parents - Anne and Tom Harper, once again.
Anne is disappointed that the quads can't work together. As a punishment, she prevents them from adopting a dog that they wanted to adopt until they learn how to work together to prove that they can take care of a dog. This proves almost impossible for the quads because they immediately start fighting again over the dog's name. Dawn wants to name him Squishy Paws while her brothers have their own names - Gary, Chip and Tiny-Elvis. None of them is willing to back down.
However, when the dog pees on their dad's signed sports jersey, the quads work together to hide the evidence. When Anne finds out, she is glad that they were at least able to work together. So, she lets them adopt the dog. However, the quads still can't agree on the dog's name.
