Jughead ends up insulting Veronica, and she leaves, annoyed and angry. At the beach, Jughead is busy showing off his new pet, and sets it down on the shore so it can get some water, etc. Jughead turns his back, then the next thing he knows, there are TWO clams laying there. Betty and the rest of the gang convince Jughead not to mess with nature. Jughead is saddened by the loss of his pet, and two other guys on the beach think he's made a great sacrifice, and Veronica thinks that weirdness must be contagious.
