Overjoyed, Veronica rushes to a confused Archie and kisses him on the cheek. At the soda shop, Archie runs into a boy studying Einstein. The boy says that there's nothing more difficult than trying to understand Einstein's theories. Archie corrects him, saying "You're wrong! Have you ever tried to understand the Lodges?"

Synopsis:
Archie is wearing a Greek fisherman's cap, and Reggie asks him why he's wearing it. Archie says because it's his, and Reggie counters that it's not a Greek fisherman's hat then. Jughead arrives, and Archie asks him to tell Reggie how Archie got the cap. Jughead relates a story where a hitchhiking Greek fisherman left his cap in Archie's back seat. Archie pleads that he bought it in the store, telling Jughead and Reggie that they're in cahoots. Reggie says he was in Cahoots last summer for the Annual Crabgrass Festival. Frustrated, Archie stomps away, wandering by Betty and Veronica. He explains what happened, but both girls say that they like the cap and think it's cute. He explains that it's a Greek fisherman's cap. Veronica says that's too bad; she thought it was his cap. The girls giggle and continue to joke as Archie, exhausted, tosses the cap into a garbage can and walks off.

Betty incenses Veronica, saying that Archie "does nice work" and that they "made beautiful music together!" Archie sees the now fuming Veronica and asks what's wrong. Unfortunately, Veronica responds with a book to Archie's head and storms off.
