Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn Wiki
— Ricky to the quads

Keeping Up with the Quadashians is the third episode in Season 3 of Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn. It premiered on January 21, 2017 to an audience of 1.59 million viewers.


After binge-watching their favorite reality show, the quads decide to start their own reality show, "Hanging With The Harpers". [1]


The Harper Quads are watching a reality show called "Life of Eiffel" starring Eiffel and her sister Lilly. Dawn says she didn't like Eiffel when she did ballet class together with her in "Ballet and the Beasts" but now that she's a TV star, she loves her. In the show, Eiffel is complaining that Lilly didn't invite her to game night. Lilly says Eiffel would make it odd because she's odd. As the drama escalates, the quads start cheering and shouting until Anne and Tom enter the room to see if the kids are OK. The quads explain that they're just watching Life of Eiffel and Dawn even does an impression of Eiffel. The parents urge the quads to stop watching too much TV. They don't need to watch other people's lives. Their lives are interesting too.

This gives Dawn an idea. Their lives are interesting too. In fact, they are quadruplets. Everyone would love to see a show about them. The quads agree with her to film their own reality show, Hanging with the Harpers so that they can get famous too. To get the right equipment for the show, they call in Dooley. After spending too much time praising himself, Dooley tells the quads that he's got cameras set up ready in the house, personal microphones and a "safe zone" for the quads to share their views.

The filming begins and the quads get started. However, starting drama to make the show more interesting proves too difficult. Luckily, Mae's birthday is coming up and the quads see it as an opportunity to cause some drama. Dawn tries to influence Mae by asking her to cut the number of attendees to her party. But Mae isn't comfortable cutting anyone out. Dawn keeps raising the bar but Mae proves too difficult to convince. Realizing that the quads can't convince Mae to cut out some people, there's only one thing they can do: vote one of themselves out. Ricky loves the idea of voting one of them out and is confident that they will vote Nicky out after trying to influence Dawn and Dicky. Things don't work out for Ricky. He gets voted out of Mae's birthday party instead of Nicky.

Ricky gets mad at Dicky and Dawn for voting against him despite his attempt to influence them to vote Nicky out. In fact, he decides to quit Hanging with the Harpers and starts his own show, in which he himself is the only star of the show. Dawn, Nicky and Dicky arrive at Mae's party and use it as an opportunity to shoot more of their show. Ricky arrives too and says that since he's not part of Hanging with the Harpers, he doesn't have to respect their vote against him. He tries to take a shot with Mae for his Ricky show. Things get out of control.

After ruining Mae's party and watching the entire show, the quads agree that they went too far to cause drama. They agree to do away with the show and ask Dooley to delete the videos he recorded.
