However, Michael soon informs D.J. that he plans to sit with Kathy Santoni at lunch the next day; when D.J. asks why, Michael explains that although he knows D.J. is nice, fun and smart, he views Kathy as “so pretty”. When Stephanie tries asking her about it, D.J. tells her she wants to be alone. So she gathers up Stephanie's belongings and throws her out, even going so far as to throw out Mr. Bear with her.
Meanwhile, Rebecca and Danny are hosting a charity event where eligible bachelors are auctioned off to women who want a date with them. Among the participating bachelors are Danny (who gets a date with an elderly lady wearing a hat with a bird on it) and Joey (who gets a date with Heather, the elderly lady’s granddaughter). However, it is Jesse who ends up receiving the highest bid of them all… from a jealous Rebecca, who wins with a bid of $1,700.
Once they’re back at home, Jesse, Danny, and Joey hear about D.J.’s broken heart. However, they mess things up a little when Danny tries to tell D.J. the story of "The Ugly Duckling". D.J. interprets this to mean that she herself is ugly, so she leaves the bedroom and goes into the bathroom, shutting the door behind her. Luckily, Becky soon arrives. After she tells off the guys about the "Ugly Duckling" story (which she says should only be told about some other kid) and Jesse shoots down Joey's suggestion of "Hansel and Gretel", Danny asks her to try talking to D.J. about what had happened, since D.J., being a girl, needs a woman to talk to (in Danny’s words), especially when it comes to subjects like a broken heart.
As Stephanie and Mr. Bear emerge from Michelle's room to go back into her original room, Becky ushers D.J. out of the bathroom and back into the bedroom, closing the door behind them and locking it. Stephanie goes back to get the rest of her stuff, realizing she didn't have it with her the first go-round. However, when she tries to get back into her original room after knocking on the door, Mr. Bear is thrown out for the second time tonight, before the door closes again and is locked again so the chat can focus on Becky and D.J. alone. As the inspirational music plays, Becky explains she was in a similar situation as D.J.: Boyfriends come, and boyfriends go. They hug, and D.J. decides that maybe another time, they should talk about girl stuff.
As the music stops and they exit the room, Becky and D.J. discover Stephanie fast and sound asleep in her sleeping bag with Mr. Bear next to her right near the room's entrance. As Becky leaves and heads downstairs, D.J. drags the sleeping bag, with Stephanie and Mr. Bear in tow, into their room, and puts it right near the foot of the toy chest near Stephanie's bed.
The chat works, and when Danny finds out when Becky comes downstairs to the kitchen, he thanks her for the help and then heads upstairs to say goodnight to D.J., joking that there should be a warning label on the "Ugly Duckling" story. After he leaves, Jesse and Becky talk about tonight's auction, and even about how they should go out more often. They share a kiss (to the "WHOO!" of the studio audience), and suddenly, Joey brings Michelle into the kitchen, and she can only blurt out "Have mercy!", to which they stare at her, Joey escorts her back out and Jesse and Becky go back to their kiss (as the audience applauds and the EP credits appear).
Kimmy: [runs into D.J.'s and Stephanie's room excitedly] Stop the homework!
D.J.: But if I stop, you won't have anything to copy.
[In D.J. and Stephanie's bedroom...]
Stephanie: Hi, D.J. How come your boyfriend left so soon?
D.J.: I don't have a boyfriend.
Stephanie: Did he dump you?
D.J.: We broke up. Just forget it. I want to be alone. [gathers up all of Stephanie's belongings] Here's your sleeping bag, your pajamas, and your pillow. Go sleep with Michelle.
Stephanie: [as she is pushed out the door by D.J.] But– But– But– But– But– But– [But...D.J. has completely pushed her out and slammed the door in her face.] Aren't you forgetting something? [D.J. reopens the door and throws Mr. Bear out before slamming the door again.] How rude.
When Nick goes into Michelle's room to check on Michelle and Stephanie, he closes the door. But as he leaves, the door is open.
