Coming back from grocery shopping, Betty and Veronica see Archie, Reggie and Jughead, who are embarrassed by the girls 'stretch pants.' They explain to the boys that they bought them specifically for the picnic they're all going to, but Archie, Reggie, and Jughead are shocked at the idea.
Jughead gets the idea to 'turn the tables' on them, and gets matador outfits (with stretch pants) for Archie and Reggie. Showing up for the picnic, the girls are not pleased to see them in these outfits, but they agree to go.
