Archie Andrews; Betty Cooper; Veronica Lodge; Jughead Jones; Mr. Lodge
Veronica returns from a trip to London and immediately manipulates Archie away from Betty and over to her house. Jughead goes over to join Archie and Veronica, who tells him that he can't stay unless he brings a date.
Reggie sees how Veronica fusses over Archie when he complains about his woes and pains. Betty explains that Archie knows how to appeal to Veronica's mother instinct. Reggie decides to cause himself some pain so Veronica will feel an urge to take care of him.
