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."

Betty gets a pay reduction at work and has her workload increased. Mr. Lodge offers to make Archie a superstar if the boy leaves Betty to go back to Veronica. Angered by the proposal, Archie throws Lodge out of the bar he's singing at. Feeling dejected and with few prospects, Archie stops at a dive, only to meet his childhood friend Ambrose. He then meets Betty and kisses her, feeling better about his life. Watching the Andrews from the street is Dilton -- a scientist who supposedly disappeared after publishing his work on alternate universes.

Mr. Weatherbee proposes to Ms. Grundy in this story after she tells him she's very sick and may not live much longer.

The majority of the cameos take place on page 5, where Dilton Doiley is seen driving through various "alternate Archie" realities.
