At the prom which is being held at a beach, Rick, Terry, Terry's friend Denise are having fun at the prom. Eventually, Greg is crowned prom king at the senior prom and Debra Strobridge is crowned queen, Debra refuses to dance with Greg. Greg then starts a fight with Rick, who is dancing with Debra, and punches Rick and knockes him down. Terry attacks Greg, but is picked up and thrown into the water, then Terry's brother, Buddy, tries to deal with Greg, but he too is thrown into the water. Rick gets back up and finishes the fight, gives Greg some good punches and then grabs Greg and throws him into the punch bowl with his face hitting the bowl first. After that, he was humiliated and defeated for good.

Greg Tolan is played by William Zabka, who also played Johnny Lawrence in The Karate Kid. The characters are quite similar - though unlike Johnny, Greg is not redeemed at the end and remains evil.
