Kidder continues to try to teach Icky to read, with limited success. While Billy and Kidder are away at the markets Icky finds the Liverpool boys at the campsite and brings them back to the house. They all get drunk and trash the house. Meanwhile at the markets Billy meets Jo, a local girl. When Billy gets back he finds Icky sleeping off a hangover and Kidder's money gone. They go back to the campground and get the money back from Rabbit. Kidder gives the boys handmade books about their adventures, and the three go to a local dance, where Billy kisses Jo for the first time.
