At the dress rehearsal there's a bad feeling about the unrealistic set and especially the lack of motorbikes. Mr. Bronson has been unravelling Gonch's entire video scheme, but things are desperate enough for the teacher to do a deal with Gonch, to at least copy some motorbike sound effects. Banksie wants to make a contribution to the musical, but no-one will hear him out. The first half of the performance goes moderately well, but even the mayor observes that it lacks punch. Banksie's idea is revealed - a set of real-life bikers is outside the school, ready to bring on their machines for a finale, but Mrs. McClusky has caught wind of the plan, and has to be persuaded first.
