Nikki uses a Q-tip to clean the front window of the surf shop, to buy herself more time to spy on Goofy. Erica walks up and says that the window is extremely clean, and then walks away. Amber totally busts Nikki spying on them, and walks over and accuses Nikki of spying. Nikki claims that she's working, and then accuses Amber of being pathetic for getting a job with Goofy just to hang out with him. Amber says that she worked there first, and Goofy joined her. Erica walks over and gets Nikki to help her in the back room as Amber flounces off. Erica tells Nikki that "suspicion is a self-fulfilling prophecy" and brings up Othello as an example, because Erica is apparently in some sort of Beach Great Books program.
Bradin calls Sarah, mentions the heat (Heat Index 7), and asks her to surf with him. Sarah says she already has plans with an old friend, so Bradin invites her to hang out later, letting her know he doesn't just want sex. Sarah totally blows him off and hangs up. Bradin sits on his bed like, "I thought her breasts would make her emotionally connected with me! Aunt Ava sucks."
Nikki and Goofy meet up while riding bikes on the pier. Goofy asks why she's giving Amber such a hard time. Nikki says that's a lie. Goofy says he likes hanging out with Nikki, but that she's making him nervous with the clinginess. Nikki blames Amber, and Goofy says that Amber is his friend, and that he feels more than that for Nikki, but that he can't be responsible for Nikki's insecurity. Goofy adds that when he was away, he couldn't wait to see Nikki again, but now he doesn't know if it will work out. He rides away, and Nikki looks sad.
