Ruby and Sapphire have Plusle and Minun attack the aircar, stopping them. Saying that enough people have died today, Ruby gives Sapphire the remote control to the car so that they can save their enemies. Ruby sends out Celebi to retrieve the Blue and Red Jewels from them.
Celebi gets and deliberately breaks the Jewels. It then brings Ruby and Sapphire through an alternate timeline where everybody survived: Marge, Norman, Steven Stone, Wallace… Ruby and Sapphire find themselves faced with everybody, who thank them for their hard work.
Suddenly realizing that there is one day left until the deadline, Ruby and Sapphire rush to get their last ribbons and badge, respectively.
The next day, with eight badges, Sapphire goes to her secret hideout on Route 101. She arrives and finds that Ruby has completely redesigned it and brought in lots of stuffed toys. He shows her that he has earned all of Hoenn's ribbons and completely ignores the fact that they confessed to each other. Sapphire is determined to confront him about their shared feelings, but before she can, Ruby's mother shows up in an interview on the TV and asks for Ruby and Sapphire to come home, so that they can celebrate not only Sapphire's birthday, but Ruby's birthday—as they'd never gotten the chance to eighty days ago.
Ruby and Sapphire leave together for Littleroot Town.
Somewhere else, Giovanni finds the remaining shards of the Blue and Red Jewels.
