Komatsu and Hatta drag Kyosuke off to their favorite eating establishment (across the walk from an aerobics center) and give him tickets to Disco Mobius to give to the twins for them. Kyosuke is adamant about not letting his sisters into such a place, but Kurumi finds and steals one ticket anyway.
Looking for her inside the disco, Kyosuke meets up with Hikaru-chan and must dance with her. During ``cheek-time,'' Ayukawa sees them, and dances with someone else.
Hikaru and Kyosuke make a date for the next day, but Kyosuke, arriving early, decides to rent a rowboat and row around the lake. He meets up with Ayukawa, who's just fought off an attack from some nondescript jerks, and they have their ``rowing first date'' together. When a child falls in the water, Madoka prepares to go save him, but Kyosuke does it instead, winning the gratitude of the child's mother and impressing Ayukawa. Sitting in a restaurant talking, Madoka mentions that today was ``like a date or something.'' Kyosuke remembers his missed date with Hikaru and blurts it out, ruining the mood with Ayukawa. She gets up to leave and tells him, ``Wash it before you return it,'' referring to the jacket she loaned him.
Returning to where he was supposed to meet Hikaru-chan, he finds written, ``Kyosuke no baka!'' which of course means ``Stupid Kyosuke!'' Kyosuke ends the episode with a cold.
