Synopsis:
While waiting for Archie and Reggie to arrive to take them out for a date, Betty and Veronica remember the first time the boys came to pick them up to take them to a dance: they stopped to play follow-the-leader with the boys, and wound up at Ronnie's house late and muddy. In the present, the same thing happens to Archie and Reggie, but for a different reason.
