Meanwhile, Susan turned toward her journal and thought the karaoke might have given something to write about but all she could think about was a mooing [[Writer's Block]]. She opened the journal to recall what was the last thing she wrote about. Upon reading it she experienced a flashback to her reaction to seeing her [[The Pompoms#Mr. Pompoms|father]] cheating with [[Mr. Pompoms's mistress|a blonde woman]] which was to attempt to cut all her hair off with scissors because it was blonde. Her [[The Pompoms#Mrs. Pompoms|mother]] had stopped her before she could finish and explained to her that her father didn't hate her but did what he did because he was a man which transferred the hatred of men to Susan.

Susan reflecting on this hurried away to be alone and went to the basement. However, when she got there, she found Justin there moping. Seeing that he was upset at something Susan decided to push her issues to the side and get Justin to talk to her. Susan reassured him that she wouldn't judge him and tried a bit of humor before asking if he wanted her to leave him alone. Justin then revealed his love for Elliot to Susan and explained nature of his being outed and how it involved [[Melissa]] and his meeting Elliot and Nanase. He attributed all the good things that happened to him since his being outted to being ultimately due to Elliot's involvement in his life. He explained that as much as he was grateful of Elliot being his friend he was also unhappy that they could not be more than that. He complained that love was illogical and [[Susan's Logic|Susan's Logic]] showed up briefly to bemoan her uselessness there to which Susan thought logic was inappropriate for this situation. Susan expressed her inability to come up with comforting words and Justin thanked her for listening. He explained that he had accepted his incompatible orientation with Elliot but was still hurt when on occasions like this he was reminded of it citing Elliot saying he was cute as soon as he saw him transformed. Justin pondered if it was better to stay female as it would improve his chances of finding someone and he would be attractive to Elliot but it was not a option he would like taking. Susan told Justin that he was not alone just because he was single and he had friends that cared about him and liked him for who he was. Justin was greatly comforted by Susan's words and hugged her.

Susan told Justin that he was not alone just because he was single and he had friends that cared about him and liked him for who he was. Justin was greatly comforted by Susan's words and hugged her. Still full of emotion, Justin and Susan kissed. Once they did so, it quickly escalated and they were about to do something they would both regret when the light suddenly flashed and turned off, apparently burning out. This startled them and Susan fell off the couch. In the dark, Susan saw that Tedd's computer was on and turned the monitor on for light. Justin apologized for acting on impulse but was stopped by Susan when he mentioned that he though he kissed first. Susan said she thought she had done so instead and the humor of it caused them to laugh diffusing the situation. As Susan and Justin went back upstairs, the content of what Susan wrote in her journal about the recent events was revealed. It consisted of the lessons she had learned during the party about people's nature due to her experiences, a reevaluation of her approach toward her father's actions and an expression of a lack of regret of the events of the party given how they turned out. It was then revealed that the light "burning out" was actually an illusion created by the Demonic Duck done as a favor to Justin to make up for his earlier actions toward him and he promptly left to hit the bars.

Meanwhile, before Sarah and Elliot were alone, Sarah complimented Tedd on the cake and expressed surprise at him cooking. Tedd said he was only good at it when he was female and Elliot said that his cooking ability had nothing to do with his gender. Tedd said he had conditioned himself to cook better as a girl and explained how he got that way. When Sarah said that made sense, Elliot responded that most things involving Tedd were nonsensical. Tedd was in the process of replying to this when Grace appeared with a big smile on her face and kissed him. As Elliot and Sarah looked on, Tedd seemed to be enjoying the kiss until he came to the same realization as before when Grace hugged him and pulled himself away from Grace. He nervously made an excuse to leave to go upstairs and ran away, in embarrassment while thinking of the repercussions of his actions.

There was a brief intermission of Jeremy enjoying his catnip plant before returning to Ellen and Nanase's actions when all this was going on. Ellen took Nanase aside to talk with her alone. When Grace saw them going she inferred the topic of their discussion and got giddy which is what probably incited her to kiss Tedd.

When Ellen and Nanase were alone Nanase asked what Ellen wanted to talk about and Ellen responded that it involved a personal aspect of the Second Life dreams that she didn't mention before and may never fully tell the others. Nanase agreed to keep it private. Ellen said that there was an alternate of Tedd in her dreams of which she had told Elliot about and described the alternate Tedd. Nanase asked if an alternate of her was there and Ellen said if there was she never met her. Ellen described how the alternate Tedd was obviously attracted to her alternate but her alternate was only attracted to [[Archie]] and described Archie. Ellen described her alternate's relationship with Archie and revealed that her alternate and Archie were in a relationship long enough for them to sleep together. Nanase was a little taken aback by this but let her continue. Ellen described how Archie had been pressured into doing it by her alternate and how they had broken up over it but still remained friends.

Nanase was a little taken aback by this but let her continue. Ellen described how Archie had been pressured into doing it by her alternate and how they had broken up over it but still remained friends. Ellen described how the experience made her feel conflicted about it. Nanase questioned her on this point and Ellen asked Nanase what she would think of female Elliot acting the way she, Ellen had toward guys. Nanase responded that she would think he was overcompensating. Ellen explained how, when she had decided to accept herself as a new person different from Elliot, she wanted to embrace her differences from him. However, Ellen had realized that her attraction to girls was pure in a way her attraction for guys was not and so the experience of being with Archie made her realize that she was not ready for heterosexual relationships. Ellen said she may be bisexual to a certain degree but was effectively just lesbian as far as relationships went. When Nanase expressed her acceptance of that fact, Ellen thanked her for everything she did for her and said she was willing to talk about any issues Nanase wished to discuss. Nanase thanked her but did not take up the offer. Ellen tried again but Nanase said she didn't want to at that time. Ellen, disappointed at Nanase's failure to open up, made an excuse to leave to go to the porch. Nanase called after her that it was cold outside but Ellen did not respond.

Ellen contemplated Nanase's failure to open up as she gazed into the starry sky and Nanase stared at the open door before realizing what she need to do. Meanwhile, upstairs, Tedd decided to come back downstairs but asked Grace about her lack of pants. Grace assured him that she had shorts on. Tedd told Grace that he should apologize to Sarah for calling her a lesbian repeatedly. However, when he was about to, he realized Sarah was effectively with a girl at the moment since Elliot was female so he held off until a "less ironic time". Elliot asked if they were all going to change back now and Grace responded that they could if they wanted to and just needed to ask her or Tedd to work the TF gun. Susan and Justin appeared and notified them about the apparently burnt out light. When Tedd asked what they were doing downstairs, Susan responded that she was logging and Justin said he was providing logging material. Sarah wondered out loud about Ellen and Nanase which made Grace giddy thinking about it. Tedd asked her why she was smiling like that and Susan asked if it was due to her lack of pants. Grace lifted up her shirt to reveal her short shorts and Nanase who just arrived was startled by that sight.
