Josh and Chris flirt with the girls, but when Josh is feeling up one of them, her boyfriend, Bill, shows up, and is mad at Josh. Bill attacks Josh, but Draph uses telekinesis to stop him. Evan then engages in a fistfight with Bill, managing to dodge Bill's blows. Chris finally sends a fireball at Bill, who backs down. Chris, Evan, and Josh then say goodbye to Draph and leave.
