Because of her weight, they have trouble getting to the island by boat, so they take a raft. Once there, Bruinhilda goes to get the lunches from the boat Archie and Veronica had taken to the island, and she breaks the dock, drifting back out with the boat. When Jughead hears that the lunches are drifting away with the boat, he saves the boat and Bruinhilda with it, earning her gratitude and her lunch as well. The lunch turns out to be one sandwich each, to Jughead's disappointment.
