To prepare for the party, Dee Dee sent invitations between the vents of lockers during school. Shortly before the event, Dee Dee's fellow student and good friend Nate Wright agreed to attend a party with Gertrude, his girlfriend. To his dismay, Dee Dee invited Nate to the party. However, Nate revealed the party with Trudy, thus denying the invitation. He proceeded to explain who the host of his party, Lindsay Phillips, was.
According to Dee Dee, every sixth grader (except Nate) attended the party. During the celebration, Mark "put the moves" on Lily. At one point, Jason caused a spectacle for himself by fake-sneezing into the bean dip. Teddy also did something very notable under the ping-pong table, though Francis did not find out at first. A pencil also was found in a bowl of fruit punch.
Francis and Teddy continued talking about the party for days, to Nate's great annoyance. He asked Marty Wright, his father, if he could be driven to school to avoid hearing about it, but Marty declined.
