The boys leave, passing the booth where Nathan and Donna are sitting with Hazel and Bernard, and Nathan quickly jumps up and says that they need to go. He asks Hazel where Vince goes on Saturday night, and she tells him that Saturday night he'll be at Babylon. Nathan says he might go there, as if he goes there all the time. Bernard asks him if he's got a membership, and Nathan looks surprised. Bernard takes a card out of his wallet and hands it to Nathan, telling him that if he's asked, his name is Bernard Thomas. At Babylon, Nathan's card is scanned, and the security guy asks him what his name is. "Bernard Thomas," Nathan replies. "Date of birth 1946? Looking good, Bernard," the man says, and asks him to pay the £8 admission fee. Once inside the cavernous club, Donna and Nathan proceed down the stairs in jaw-dropping awe of the place. What a couple of sophisticates. As a woman slaps "shag tags" on their chests, Nathan is already searching the room for any sign of Stuart, and spots him dancing with Vince and the rest of the boys. We're then treated to an aerial pan of the stalls of the men's loo, where various couples are kissing...and stuff. Vince and Stuart are snorting coke off the back of the toilet, and Vince starts talking about how Mickey Blake, the bloke who got him the gear, can get anything. Remember when I said Vince would say or do something totally lame before long? This is it, boys and girls. "And he got me episode three of Planet of the Daleks -- in colour. The BBC's only got that in black and white, but Mickey Blake, you just have to ask. He said he could get me episode four of The Tenth Planet. Now that's a classic. No one's seen it since 1966!" he exclaims, waving his hands around and looking like he just might shoot his load right there. Stuart smiles and tells him, "There are no words for how sad you are." Word up, yo. Back in the main part of the club, Nathan is informed that Babylon clubber 373 has spotted his shag tag and would like to buy him a drink. Donna convinces Nathan that he should go find the guy, because he might be closer to their age and a better catch than Stuart. So Nathan walks around, looking for a guy wearing shag tag 373, and eventually spots an orca-like blob who is a walking fashion faux pas, complete with a figure-enhancing Hawaiian shirt. He stands up and waves at Nathan, who quickly retreats back to the balcony where Donna is waiting. He points out 373 to her, and they both collapse with laughter. Meanwhile, Alexander is looking frantically for Lee, who he eventually discovers in one of the club's other rooms, snogging another guy. A look of disbelief and disgust comes over Alexander's face. He then phones Stuart's workmate Sandra, who is at that moment riding some guy like she's in the Queen's race at Ascot. "YES?!" she barks down the phone. "What's Japanese for slut?" asks Alexander. He then joins his friends on the balcony that overlooks the dance floor, muttering, "Bastard fucking Jap. I'm taking out economic sanctions, me. That Yohji [Yamamoto] suit is going straight back!" No one notices his offensive use of the world "Jap," possibly because Stuart's just spotted his elusive prey, the hot guy from the first club, dancing on the floor below them. At the same time, Vince spots Nathan and Donna and comments that the boy really is stalking him. "This is getting creeee-py," he says, to which Phil replies, "Because he goes to Babylon on Saturday night? Yeah, that's so unusual."
