Synopsis
Meet Cricket O'Dell, a girl who is obsessed with money. She not only loves money, she can literally smell it. And she'll follow any man who has money. When she shows signs of being attracted to Archie because of his connection to the "gorgeously rich" Lodges, Archie passes her off to a man with more money, Reggie Mantle. After a night of doing the things that Cricket considers fun (like listening to a record of slot machines in Las Vegas), Reggie has to find a way to get rid of her, so he gives some money to Jughead, causing Cricket to follow him instead.
