Andrea is outraged when the school refuses to allow students to take part in a health survey that includes questions about sex. She goes before the school board and introduces a proposal to distribute condoms at West Beverly. The Walshes host a
heated parents association meeting where Donna debates her mother about the issue. Andrea launches a crusade to create awareness about AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases. She loses her enthusiasm after Brandon suggests that she shouldn't preach about safe sex because she is a virgin. The school board defeats the motion; the woman casting the tie-breaking vote goes against her conscience out of loyalty to Felice Martin. Kelly eases Andrea's embarrassment about being a virgin by pointing out that having a "reputation" can also bring its share of pain. Andrea decides to go out with John, a newspaper colleague whom she had ignored because of Brandon. Dylan forbids Brenda from writing an article about her pregnancy scare because he considers it an invasion of his privacy. David misreads Donna's stance on the condom issue as a sign that she will sleep with him. She explains that she does not plan to have pre-marital sex. Jackie tells Kelly that she is pregnant.

Emily invites everyone to join her at an underground club. The location is a secret; the gang must exchange an egg at a convenience store for this information. The others leave without Steve and Andrea, who end up going to the wrong store and
embarrassing themselves. Kelly is mortified when David drinks an entire bottle of whiskey, but Donna dances with him and has a good time. Emily slips a drug called U4EA into Brandon's drink to get him to loosen up. He is too wasted to drive, and vandals trash his car when he leaves it at the club overnight. Brandon does not expose Emily's deed to his parents, but breaks up with her because he no longer trusts her.

The students of West Beverly unearth a time capsule from 1941 and put together a capsule of their own. Mrs. Scanlon organizes a surprise party for Scott's birthday and pushes David to round up the guests. Donna is the only person who wants to
attend. Kelly, Steve, Brenda, Brandon and Emily reluctantly come to the party, but act like jerks and refuse to participate in the activities. David tries to save the party by getting everyone to dance, but Brandon and Emily sneak upstairs to make out in the bedroom of Scott's little brother. Mrs. Scanlon throws them out, and the others act really indignant and walk out on the party. Scott goes to his father's den to get matches for the cake and finds a gun in a locked desk drawer. He tries to twirl it for David, but accidentally shoots himself in the stomach and dies. David's friends and teachers annoy him by constantly asking about his well-being, while Mrs. Scanlon keeps trying to give him Scott's belongings. Donna takes offense when David continually snaps at her. When Brandon tries to interview him about Scott, David erupts (with the microphone in the radio booth on). He expresses his anger at those who pretend to care about Scott after his death and his guilt over breaking off their friendship. The gang dedicates the time capsule to Scott, and David donates Scott's cowboy hat to ensure that he won't be forgotten.
