The doorbell rings and Mary opens the door, turns out to be JT who called, both greet each other and JT begins to mow the lawn. Clarence goes out into the garden and stops JT to make him listen to his music. Then JT shows him his ponytail and Clarence decides he wants to have an equal. So JT makes him a ponytail and they both go for a walk to the city: Gonnar takes them to Night Snacks. There JT and Clarence enter the place with the condition of never having been in school, because there is a girl who hates the school at the entrance of the place. Once in the store, the two choose a chocolate and the employee gives them free to see his ponytail. Outside the store, JT explains to Clarence that he looks great and they agree to see each other the next day, so JT goes home.
