Meanwhile, upstairs Grace and Susan discussed Tedd's reaction to seeing her as a guy. Susan thought that he was disturbed by his girlfriend being a guy but Grace dismissed that explanation. Sarah was preoccupied with thoughts of Elliot as a girl. Ellen talked to Elliot about Nanase's not opening up to her and Elliot was preoccupied with thoughts of Sarah as a guy.

Justin found Sarah's camera and the Demonic Duck apologized and said he would make it up to him before he left. Tedd finished ordering the food and told them that his father was paying for all of it. When Mr. Verres realized this he let out a loud cry of anguish. Justin arrived upstairs and said he thought the Demonic Duck was hitting on him to which Nanase made a joke. Justin took pictures of Grace, Tedd, Sarah and Elliot and Jeremy finally got off Susan to her delight. Sarah discussed with Grace her feelings toward Elliot while gender swapped and her fear of doing something she would later regret and Grace reassured her that Elliot could not become pregnant so soon after transforming. Nanase asked Tedd about his outfit and learned of his deal with Susan over the uniforms.

Sarah discussed with Grace her feelings toward Elliot while gender swapped and her fear of doing something she would later regret and Grace reassured her that Elliot could not become pregnant so soon after transforming. Nanase asked Tedd about his outfit and learned of his deal with Susan over the uniforms. The pizza arrived and Tedd answered the door to find [[Matthew William Cohen|the delivery boy]] was a student of [[Moperville North]]. The delivery boy overheard Susan and Nanase arguing over skirts which led to Tedd making up an excuse to explain it and hurrying to complete the delivery to minimize the chance of being recognized. However, due to Nanase's hunger, they had ordered more than what the delivery boy could carry and Tedd had to open the door again to receive the rest of it. When Tedd brought the food into the kitchen he explained why he was angry with Nanase and why he was afraid of being recognized inadvertently revealing his middle name. Sarah recognized the delivery boy as Matt Cohen and pointed out that he was too young to deliver stuff by car legally which led her to suggest blackmailing him into not revealing Tedd's transforming. When Grace and Ellen returned from hiding in the kitchen with plates and napkins, Grace gave Tedd a hug which Tedd initial met warmly before realizing Grace was currently male when she was hugging him and the embarrassment of being hugged by a guy made him draw attention to the plates being brought in. Nanase asked why they were hiding and Ellen said she didn't want to be seen with Elliot while they were both female and Grace said she didn't want to morph away her antennae given the energy needed and their size. When they were eating Susan asked Nanase about her massive intake of food and Nanase explained the [[magic]] related reason for it and took the opportunity to create a male fairy doll. When they finished eating, Ellen talked to Justin indirectly about her relationship to Nanase but Justin didn't get the point of the conversation.

In the basement, Susan wrote in her journal about her feelings and how she overestimated the differences she thought she would be experiencing while male. She wrote a sentence about no longer excusing her father's actions and was pondering it when Sarah startled her and interrupted her train of thought to tell her to come upstairs. When Susan came upstairs she discovered that they were going to sing karaoke. Sarah said it was Ellen's idea and it would be fun. Tedd explained that the [[uryuom]]s [[William and Gillian|Will and Gill]] were crazy about it. Grace explained how the system worked and Susan said none of them were good at singing. Grace said Tedd was a good singer based on overhearing him in the shower. Tedd botched his denial of this and Susan was about to ask the relevance of it before realizing he took showers as a girl.

Sarah sang first but the reviews were mixed and she got 58 out of 100 and the message "Excellent Effort" which she commented on. Grace appeared to defend the system but revealed she was reciting the stuff from the machine's manual. They discussed the scoring briefly and Susan said she would not be singing. This incited the rest of the group to give her puppy dog eyes until she conceded. She sang halfheartedly but still managed to get a 42 and "Sing More, Silly". Grace went third and sang enthusiastically to get a 63 and "Full of Spirit". Justin went next and pulled off a 76. He explained he chose the song strategically to Sarah's outrage. One of the French Immortals was revealed to be narrating but said she really wanted to participate. When Nanase went, she got a 49 and "Good Show" and complained that her current gender screwed her up. When they were deciding the order to finish with Ellen said she wanted to go last but evaded the question of why. Tedd volunteered to go and Susan teased him. When he sang he got an 82 which he had mixed reactions to. Elliot went and got a 55 which was the third lowest score and Nanase said she wanted a rematch once female again. Finally it was Ellen's turn and she got Nanase to hold her jacket for her ostensibly because she could get hot in it. She was nervous at first but when she decided to start she closed her eyes to Nanase's surprise. She sang the song perfectly, her Second Life alternate accompanying her in spirit. When she finished, it displayed a 100 and "Flawless Victory" to the rest of the group's silent awe. Nanase thought about Ellen's choice of song and its relevance to their relationship. Susan and Tedd questioned how she just scored 100 since Elliot had no singing skill she could have inherited. Ellen revealed that the whole karaoke setup was intended to broach the subject of her Second Life dreams and the result of them. When she finished explaining it everyone expressed their belief in her story which reassured her. They finished up the karaoke by singing duets and then had cake. They discussed what to do after cake and Grace said they could just hang out while transformed which led to an explanation of how the transformations would wear off.
