2: Ordinary World Peter La Fleur is the owner of Average Joe's Gym. It is not a fancy gym at all. The people that go there are pretty much losers. Everyone loves Peter, he is a laid back guy that is happy when his car starts in the morning.
3: Call to Adventure Peter finds out from Kate Veatch that his gym is up for foreclosure. He has 30 days to raise $50,000 or he loses his gym. White Goodman wants to buy it out for an extra parking lot for his gym, Global Gym.
4: Refusal of the Call After multiple random fundraisers to get the money, Gordon comes up with an awesome idea that they could play dodgeball. There is an annual dodgeball tournament and the winner receives $50,000. But Peter doesn't think they could win. They don't even know how to play dodgeball.
5: Mentor Patches O'Houlihan is the Average Joe coach. He's kind of like Rocky's version of Mickey. Not the most caring, loving guy. But he teaches the guys plus Kate the important parts of Dodgeball. Dodge, Dip, Duck, Dive, and Dodge. Very important parts. Patches gets crushed by a huge sign before the championship game. "Dodgeball is a sport of violence, exclusion, and degradation."
6: Crossing 1st Threshold The first ever real dodgeball game they play against Troop 417. They actually lose but they win at the same time by disqualification, because one player from Troop 417 named Bernice took multiple anabolic steroids and a low grade beaver tranquilizer. So they got entered into the Annual Las Vegas Invitational Dodgeball Tournament.
7: Tests Troop 417, The German Team, The Lumberjacks, Skillz That Killz, and Crouching Cougars | Allies Patches O' Houlihan, Kate Veatch, Justin, Gordon, Owen, Dwight, Steve the Pirate, and Chuck Norris | Enemies White Goodman, Me' Shell Jones, Blade, Laser, Blazer, and Fran
8: Approach to Inmost Cave It is when they arrive at the Annual Las Vegas Invitational Dodgeball Tournament and play their first match against the German team. David Hasselhoff is the coach of that team. I thought I'd let you know. And then they play the Lumberjacks and beat them as well. They also knock Skillz That Killz and the Crouching Cougars out of the tournament.
9: Death Experience Patches O'Houlihan gets crushed by a giant sign and dies. Peter loses all confidence because his mentor and coach is gone. He decides he is going to give up on the tournament and not play the final game.
10: Reward White approaches Peter in the hotel and tells him he will give Peter $100,000 if he signs over his gym to White. You don't know until the end of the movie that Peter accepted his offer. But Peter got what he wanted...$50,000. He just got a little extra.
11: The Road Back Peter decides to quit, since he already has the $50,000 he wanted. He is at the airport and he runs into Lance Armstrong and Lance pretty much gives him a lecture about he was going to give up but didn't and he won a couple more Tour De France's. So Peter has to hurry back for the match.
12: Resurrection Peter is late for the game and the three dodgeball judges vote for them to be able to play. The first says they can, the second says no, and Chuck Norris, the third judge, gives the thumbs up to play. The Average Joes and Purple Cobra's play through their game and it ends in a double fault. So...that means...SUDDEN DEATH!!!
13: Return With the Elixir Peter beats White in sudden death and the Average Joe's win the tournament are really excited until White reminds the team Peter signed the gym over to White the night before. But Peter surprises White because Peter bet the $100,000 on the Average Joe's. The odds were 50:1 so Peter won 5 million dollars and bought over White's gym and turned it into a big Average Joe's gym.
