Genre

Characters
Betty Cooper; Veronica Lodge
Synopsis
Veronica's father wants her to mingle with the "unrich" (a word she uses because she can't bear to say "poor"). Betty reminds her that most of her friends are actually middle-class, but Veronica replies that "to me, anybody who isn't rich is poor." But when Betty informs her that the "unrich" wouldn't do things like use a twenty dollar bill as a bookmark, Veronica asks for advice on how to be truly "unrich."
