Joey smiles and says he's not giving up. He is gonna beat Espa Roba. Grandpa tells Joey he can win and Joey believes. He draws and what he drew was the Rulet Spider. The spider attaches itself to Jinzo. Joey says that Jinzo will walk to the center of the duel. Espa asks whats happening and Joey says " for a duelist with ESP you sure ask alot of questions" Joey tells Espa that Jinzo will spin around and when Roba tells it to stop it'll stop and what ever it stops on it will attack it. Rex says the idea is stupid and it wouldnt work. The spider spins and spins and Espa is afraid to tell it to top. Eventually he does and it stops on his Reflect Bounder. Jinzo attacks and attacks Reflect Binder. It kills it but also reflects the attack back at Jinzo. They both have died lowering Espa's life points to 0. Joey has won.
Espa is being picked on by the crowd and Joey asks for Jinzo and the locator card. Espa freaks out and refuses. He says people count on him to win and that he doesnt get it. He has to win cause he's dueling for his brothers. If his reputation as a loser spreads his brothers will be picked on. Joey asks if he needs help but Roba refuses. Joey starts to walk off but they all hear Roba's brother in the ear piece. His brothers say that he isnt a loser and he's the best.
Yugi walks away.

Roba gives up Jinzo and the locator card and says sorry. Joey accepts the apology. Joey walks off with Tea and Gramps.

Yugi tells himself Joey has gotten better. Joey also tells himself he'll go farther in the tournament and that he did good for his first duel.
  • Listen carefully to Tea's/Anzu's cell phone as it rings. The tune comes from "Shuffle," the second original opening theme for the show.
