Peggy goes with her daughter for moral support to the reunion where the enlarged photos of the glory days of high school are hung, balloons everywhere, and music playing. Enters Peggy's best friends from the good ol days: Maddy (Allen) and Carol (Hicks). The girls share laughs and talk about the past and find out about how things have changed such as Peggy is no longer with her sweetheart since he likes the ladies. and how Walter (Carey)/Carol love being single and the party life.
The time finally comes for the crowning of the king and queen of the reunion and the spotlights and eyes then look around when the names are announcned of Richard Norvik and Peggy Sue. Everyone is clapping and hollering for the win and it is all overwhlming for Peggy Sue where it all starts to spin around while Charlie is sad of not being the king he once was starts to leave. Peggy gets light headed and faints cold out.
