Archie Andrews; Veronica Lodge; Mr. Lodge; Smithers
Veronica is going to talk to her dad about a new sportscar. At Veronica's house, Mr. Lodge keeps waiting for Archie to mess up, but he never does. Worried, he gets Veronica to ask Archie to leave. Angry, Archie stomps off and runs into Smithers, the Lodge's butler. Seeing the calamity, Mr. Lodge is at once relaxed, telling Veronica that if she wants to discuss her new sportscar, he'll be in his study. Overjoyed, Veronica rushes to a confused Archie and kisses him.
Archie sees a bruise on Veronica's neck. She says she got it from Reggie last night. Shocked, Archie yells at her. She tells Archie that he's a gentle kisser and that Reggie is a nice change of pace. Archie runs off and into Betty. She tells him that a champagne cork hit her in the neck as Smithers tried to open it last night. Ecstatic, Archie kisses Betty, giving her a bruise! Veronica asks her about the hickey, but Betty just says, “Would you believe I got hit by a champagne cork?"
