Indexer Notes

On page 4, Betty talks about other boys she's dated since Archie got married, each an Archie clone: Henry Aldrich, Andy Hardy, Richie Cunningham, Zach Morris and Troy Bolton. On page 13, Cheryl takes about her current love life with a talent agent, a baseball player and a famous playwright, all aping the loves of Marilyn Monroe. Fred Mirth is a homage to Fred Mertz, Ethel Mertz' husband from the TV show "I Love Lucy."

Synopsis:
Betty and Archie are showing their wedding movies to their neighbors before going to watch Archie sing. Betty gets a pay reduction at work instead of getting laid off and has her workload increased. Mr. Lodge offers to make Archie a musical superstar if the boy leaves Betty to go back to Veronica. Angered by the proposal, Archie throws Mr. Lodge out of the bar he's singing at. Feeling dejected and with few prospects, Archie stops at a dive for dinner, only to meet his childhood friend Ambrose. He then meets Betty and kisses her passionately, feeling better about his life. And watching the Andrews from the street is Dilton Doiley -- a scientist who supposedly disappeared after publishing his ground-breaking work on alternate universes.
