He and his friends find out that Ricky didn't know that he was supposed to pick up his date by the cemetery gates on Weaver Street, because he never got the message. He listens to Greg reveal that when Ricky heard what happened to her, he felt so upset that he drove his car off a bridge. killing himself in the process, and his body was never recovered. Dede sounds shocked to hear that he died also.

Then he, Greg and Dede decide to hold a séance at the lake and to contact Ricky's ghost know to inform him what had happened that night. And that Judy is still waiting for him. It seemed to worked because after they finished, he and his friends were all startles to hear the bubbling sounds of a car's transmission at the the bottom of the lake.

The next night he, Greg and Dede go the cemetery to see if the séance worked, and if Judy and Ricky will finally be reunited. At the cemetery, the sound of wind chimes could be heard. Also there appeared to be a ghost wandering about. The hooded being is approached by Greg. Then suddenly Greg could hear: "BOO!". It turns out it is a young man in disguise in a white hooded robe. The young man also has glowing flashlights on his head and wind chimes in his hand.

He laughs as his joke is revealed. He introduces this guy to be his cousin Chuck. It turns out he never took their mission seriously. So he thought it would be funny to play a scary joke on his friends. So he asked his cousin to be in on it. This is because he was positive that a real ghost would never appear. Then he and his cousin laugh while explaining their joke. Greg becomes furious, and prepares to box their ears off. While Dede is upset asking for explanations about why their séance from the night before seemed to be successful.

Then the church bells go off, and his cousin points out that a vehicle is approaching. Greg at first, thought it is another random person, so he was ready to pound him again, thinking it was another joke. But he swears that he doesn't know this person. Then he and his friends realize the vehicle is an old 1950's Chevy glowing in the moonlight. The driver is sporting an old-fashioned greased haircut, they notice it is Ricky Mitchell. They freak out but Dede acts like everything is all right.

He, Greg and Chuck can't seem to understand, why Dede is not freaked out. Then he watches Dede prepares to approach the man in the vehicle like he is no stranger. Then she takes her ponytail out. Then she spins around and suddenly her clothing changes into a beautiful blue prom gown.

He and the two other guys then listen to Dede happily explain to them that she knew they could be the ones to help her, right from the beginning. Then she explains to him and the other two that she couldn't leave the cemetery unless someone took her with them. Then with their help, they did research with her to find out what happened that night. Now, she finally found out why Ricky never came. Then with their help, they did that séance to contact Ricky. Then his ghost finally got the message about where she was waiting for him.

Then she explains that her boyfriend is finally here to pick her up. So she gets into the car. Then he and his cousin Chuck seemed completely spooked out. Then she revealed that Dede was just her nickname, because her real name is Judy. This revealed that she was the ghost of the Prom Queen all along!

Then she explains to him and his friends them that her ride was finally here. Then he and the guys were thanked for all of their help. Ricky also thanked him and the guys them giving them a thumbs up. He and his cousin just stared in complete shock as they drive off into the night and go right through the cemetery gate like it is not even there. He now realized that ghosts really do exist!
