After having a harsh conversation with Joey, Brianna decides to bring Will back to Philadelphia for her court hearing, instead of Joey. Bri's friend, Joe, meets them in the airport, and they head out for a night at Bri's old place of employment -- a strip club that Will thinks is nothing more than a hole in the wall. After introducing Will to her co-workers, Bri surprises him with her own seductive little show on top of the bar.
Left behind at the house, Joey decides to drown his sorrows over Bri during a "fun" night out at the bar. He quickly forgets his one-drink-limit, even when Dave reminds him that he'll definitely have regrets the next morning if he drinks more. Joey makes an empty promise that he's done drinking for the night, then heads back into the bar to pound back a few more, and complains that he hates being babysat. Sure enough, when the roommates are finally able to get Joey home, he goes into a drunken rant about his horrible family life. Later that night, some female guests come over to the house to see Greg and Joey. The guests are loud and drunk, and keep the other housemates awake. But when Greg is ready to call it a night and goes to bed, Joey is still in party-mode. He sits back and chugs a bottle of wine as his blonde guest attempts to make him scrambled eggs.
Back in Philadelphia, Bri is being judged by Will and Joe for her inappropriate court outfit. The guys tell her that booty shorts probably won't make the best impression, and convince her to change into a professional pair of pants. But when Bri gets to the court house, before she even steps in the door, she's told that she might be arrested that day.
At 8:30am that morning, Joey is still drinking, and throws another, more violent temper tantrum. His guest manages to sneak out the door before things get ugly, and Sarah and Kim leave their cozy beds and hide outside, afraid that Joey might actually hurt them. After escaping Joey's room, Dave finds the girls, and they discuss the idea of having Joey leave the house for good.
After a very quick court meeting, which Bri says was completely pointless, she learns that although Bobby has dropped the charges, she has to schedule a second court date to meet with the public defender. When Bri calls Bobby to tell him she thought he looked good, Will starts to think that maybe Bri's not totally over Bobby.
After his out-of-control tantrum, Joey passes out for several hours. But when he wakes up and Sarah tries to gently confront him, he flies into a rage again. The roommates finally convince Joey to sit down and calmly talk with them in the living room, and they discover that Joey has no memory of the previous night. The roommates realize that Joey is still drunk when he starts screaming that he didn't have any problems before he came to the Real World house. Joey storms out of the room to call the Real World producers, and tell them he wants out of the house. The producers offer to put Joey into a 30-day treatment program, and then let him return to the house. Joey agrees, astounded that complete strangers care about him. He goes back to the house to apologize and say good-bye to his roommates, who tell him they are more than happy to step in and be the supportive family he never had.
Bri and Will come back to the Real World house after Joey has already left. Everyone is upset about Joey's absence, but Bri feels completely responsible for his bizarre behavior, because of the harsh things she said to him before she left for Philadelphia. But Bri quickly forgets about Joey as she talks to her mom on the phone, and realizes she still has feelings for Bobby. Will Bri ignore her mom, the roommates, and all her common sense to get Bobby back?
After a few days in rehab, Joey makes a surprise phone call to the Real World house. Everyone is happy to hear that while things are a little rough, Joey's hanging in there, and is determined to kick his destructive habits, once and for all.
