She shows the mayor files on her fellow mystery-solvers in order to seek their help in bringing down Crybaby Clown who is torturing Crystal Cove. Mayor Nettles sets out immediately to retrieve Scooby-Doo and break him out of the puppy farm he is in. Scooby then goes and helps Shaggy escape from military school and together they find Fred Jr. (who now has a hobo appearance) and the three return to Crystal Cove. Velma joins them and together they go to bring Daphne back, but she refuses their offer. Fred comes up with a doughnut shop-themed trap in order to trap out Crybaby Clown. The trap doesn't work because Fred's naiveness, making him saying that Daphne did agree to come back, but she didn't, causing the trap work to stop, and Crybaby Clown escapes using one of his bottle bombs to blow up Chen's Fireworks. Fred is depressed that the villian escaped and states that Mystery Incorporated won't be the same since Daphne is never coming back.
