Shinzo appears and gets axed from the competition. Next, it's Roman who displays her otaku filter, but Yagi uses her camera which she fails Roman.

The staff calls Shinba to the show before Shinba can help his friends. Shinba walks in with a rose in his mouth; Yagi introduces his two assistants. Sojiro reads the list of ingredients and tells the viewers the wrong things with the lack of passion. Daisy is chopping goya which is not the right ingredient. When Shinba asks Daisy to crack the eggs, she smashes against the table and cries out for MoiMoi. The viewers feel sympathetic for Daisy.

Later, the staff tells Shinba to use his assistants; Shinba finally asks his assistants to help out while he prepares the hamburger meat. To Shinba's surprise, Sojiro and Daisy flatten the hamburger meat by playing baseball with it. Then, Sojiro starts cooking clams and asks Daisy to pour cooking sake all over it. Suddenly, the rice wine gets Shinba really drunk. According to Daisy, Shinba has low alcohol tolerance. Shinba starts to give Sojiro a noogie; he starts to flirt with Daisy much ot his fan girls' surprise. Daisy pokes Shinba's eyes causing Shinba to attack the camera. Shinba tries to get more sake while Sojiro stops him; Yagi ends the show without any lost composure. Shinba throws the wine bottle at the camera.

Moments later, Shinba wakes up with a bad headache in front of his friends at the infirmary. Mimori remarks that Sojiro had carried Shinba much to Sojiro's annoyance. Sojiro reminds Shinba about the incident in Christmas where Shinba ate a whiskey bon bon. Shinba yells at Sojiro because he realize it is Sojiro's fault. Mimori tells them that she has paid for the damages. At the grocery store, Bossun gets a text message from Switch who tells them that they're going to be on the school's next show. Bossun's mother and sister are happy for him.

When Bossun gets home, he makes a face with a "3" lip. Rumi and Akane go through Bossun's things and play the DVD.
