(The episode opens up with The Lucky 6 blindfolded, except for Joey, who is leading them)
Stanley: Where the heck are we going?
Joey: I ain't spoiling, I'm no buzzkill.
(They walk a little more further)
Joey: Ok, here we are!
(Joey uncovers the blindfolds)
Edward: Oh dear! A poster for the annual dance - tonight! If only we'd had known sooner.
Joey: Well, who's the man with the plan?
Eric: Joey's the man! (laughs)
Joey: And only losers stay at home when there's a dance, so we've gotta go!
Edward: I can't recall an instance where we have ever been to one, and I don't have much going on tonight, so I'll attend.
Dallas: Count me in.
Constantinos: (nervously) Me too...
(Eric is still laughing)
Joey: If you could excuse me...
(Joey takes off faster than Usain Bolt running to the restroom, and he quickly builds a stand. After finishing it, he puts up a sign that reads "SIGN UP TO DATE JOEY!", followed by a cruddy drawing of him)
(Gordon walks up, heavily breathing, and he writes his name on the sign-up sheet. He breathes again, this time it comes down heavier)
Joey: (takes the paper away from him) No way, Twig Boy! (looks around) Uhh... (to Tamara, who walks by) Hey, Tamara! You'll go with me to the dance, right?
Tamara: I'D RATHER KISS A BLOBFISH!
(Camera cuts back to the rest of the gang)
Dallas: Edward, are you sure you'll get a date on time?
Edward: Don't worry, Dallas! I won't let you guys down!
(Camera immediately transitions to the apartment)
Edward: Oh, Oscar. I WILL let the guys down. I can never seem to get a date.
Edward: No, that was Ash who brought his yellow pet rat. Besides, how else am I ever going to ask out Kimberly Matthews?
Edward: What is it, Oscar? Whaddya have?
(Oscar takes out a book from his own skin, since his Fur is Clothing)
Edward: Good idea, Oscar!
(Cut to a time card)
The Narrator: Later that night...
Edward: So, page 1 of The Official Dating Guide: pickup lines. Eric, are you ready?
(Camera pans out to reveal Eric dressed as a girl. He's wearing lipstick, an orange wig, a purple dress and a matching purse)
Eric: I've never felt more comfy in my own skin before!
Edward: Alright then. (clears his throat and reads from the book) Hey babe, are you a college? Because I'm gonna end up wasting all my time and money on you and end up disappointed. (puts the book down and frowns) These will never wor-
(Eric smacks him with the purse)
Edward: OW! (picks up the book) Hey girl, are you a GPA? Because I could do better if I tried.
(Eric smacks him again)
(Later, Edward is in a body cast)
Edward: Eric, can't I be the girl instead?
Eric: No way, this dress is a shell of my true self!
Edward: Yeah? It's the same for me as well! (grunts) Never mind. (puts the book away) I'll have to think of a better plan.
Eric: Not yet, mister! You promised to take me out to the steakhouse!
(Edward looks at the audience in worry)
(Later, everybody is ready except for the brothers)
