Then, Mabel is released.... and the ghosts were just two seniors who, in the 1990s, were irritated by teens, and had fatal heart attacks because of "rap music" ("Homework's whack and so are rules, tucking in your shirt's for fools!") Dipper has to dance his way out.... with the "Lamby Lamby Dance" that he was forced to perform during his younger years. The teens are freed, Mabel gets off her sugar trip, and Wendy thanks Dipper, and tells him that they should hang out more often. She is the only one who witnessed his humiliating dance, and tells her friends he attacked the ghosts and fought them off instead, which thoroughly impresses them.

Wendy and Mabel have a dance party "for no reason". Dipper is asked to dance, and Mabel reminds him about an old dance he used to do, the "lamby-lamb dance". Dipper asks Wendy if they can tag along with her on her hangout with her friends. To do this, he lies about his age (stating that he is 13). Her friends come over, and Dipper meets this eccentric cast of teens. Forced to sit in the back with Mabel, they take off in the busted down, written on minivan, for an abandoned convenience store ("Thompson! Thompson! Thompson!")

After arriving at said convenience store (Dusk 2 Dawn), Dipper decides to slip over the fence, to prove that he is not afraid to Wendy. Dipper then decides to slip in the locked convenience store that one of the teens could not unlock, and is rewarded with praise from the teens. Said teens wind up going insane, eating expired food, putting mints in soda to see it explode, and having fights with bags of sugar. Mabel decides to eat some "Smile Dip", which was banned in America. Mabel consumes the entire sugar packet, and undergoes strange hallucinations, including dogs and riding a four headed dolphin with hands in it's mouths. ("ONWARD AOSHIMA!") Dipper is told to go get ice for two of the teens... and winds up seeing a recreation of the nervous system. In monster form. He distracts the teens with "Dancey Pants Revolution" ("the game that tricks you into exercising!"). Dipper then winds up finding the outlines of two bodies on the floor. One of the teens wants to lie down in them, and Dipper, already knowing that something's not right in the store, asks everyone to reconsider "what if this store is really haunted". He is laughed off and earns the title of "Captain Buzzkill" from all of the teens, including Wendy. Enraged at accusation of cowardice, Dipper lies down himself.... only for the outlines to disappear.
