Synopsis
As the duel continues, Yugi's grandfather reveals how he and Rebecca's grandfather Arthur Hawkins and he played a Duel Monsters game while sealed in a pyramid in Egypt. Although Yugi uses the Catapult Turtle and Brain Control to eliminate Rebecca's Millennium Shield and Cannon Soldier, she responds by sacrificing her monsters and plays the Shadow Ghoul, which gains extra attack from each of her monsters in the graveyard. But their game contines to parallel the one Yugi's grandfather and Hawkins played in the crypt.

Yugi stalls with the Swords of Revealing Light but surrenders just as his grandfather did against Rebecca's grandfather. Then Arthur arrives and we discover that Yugi would have won but chose to let Rebecca win so she'd learn a lesson. In recognition Yugi gives her his Ties of Friendship card.

Goofs and Nitpicks
  • At the beginning of the episode, Grandpa was telling how he met Arthur, and the camera will show the duel, and you can see that the Millennium Shield was in attack mode, not defense mode.
  • When Rebecca used Stop Defense on Yugi's face-down defense card, a second before the card flipped, Tristan exclaims, "She's forced the Dark Magician into attack mode!", How did he know what card it was?
  • At the end of the episode, when the 'Ties of Friendship' falls onto the Blue Eyes, you'll notice that the Blue eyes no longer has tape on it, as though it is brand new.
  • Because the Dark Magician appeared before he said that.
