Veronica's "all tied up", and even though he thinks of Betty like a sister, Archie's mom convinces him to call her for a date. He says "This is Archie! Doing anything tonight, Keed?". She replies, "Er..no..but you must have the wrong number, Archie. This is Betty Cooper speaking!". He says he knows, and she faints. Thinking she's waking from a dream, and then realizing she hasn't, she gets dressed in her best white dress. She's anticipating romance, and Archie shows up in a flannel shirt and jeans, to read a book. Betty gets mad when he won't kiss her goodnight, and throws a pie at his face.
