When Yami Met Sally is the fourteenth episode of Yu-Gi-Oh: The Abridged Series.


For months people waited with bated breath to see what would occur when Kaiba and Yugi finally had their rematch. Then it finally happened.


It's Kaiba vs. Yugi.... again.. in a children's card game... why do they make us suffer like this?


As the group exits the underground, Joey is refreshed and talks about how much he likes the smell of card games in the morning. Tea shows that they are right outside Pegasus's castle. Joey says that he'll buy new friends with the money, but when Yugi asks about Joey's sister, he says he'll buy a new sister. Tea says that she's glad Bakura's gay, which she believes because of Bakura's gaydar, which he replies to by calling her a 'bloody tart'.

Yugi asks Tia if she remembers when the two of them became friends. She says that she remembers the 4Kids version. A flashback shows that she used to work at 'Kentucky Fried McBurger King'. While advertising for the restaurant, she sees Yugi and Joey enter, and thinks about how they will drive away all of the customers with their talk of card games. After Yugi says that he thinks he loves her, Tia finds a note in her locker at school. It says that Yugi found a private dance studio for Tia (At the restaurant she says that she's saving money to be a table-dancer in New York.), and to bring lots of money to steal. When she arrives, she is knocked out by a mugger after a brief struggle. Moments later, Yami Yugi arrives and mind breaks the mugger. When Tia wakes up, she 'was staring at the man of my dreams'(quote). Back in the present day, she says that they then got married and had 2 kids. Yugi asks if Tia still has her work uniform before being cut off.
