Synopsis
Archie gets nostalgic while looking at an old high school yearbook and remembers/imagines a time when Mr. Weatherbee planned to leave his job at Riverdale High.

Indexer Notes

Likely a Bolling script based on the narrative structure and sentimentality of the story, which foreshadows Bolling's 1980s work on "Archie and Me." Reference is made to the Patch Hop stories of the 1940s and Ophelia Gluetenschnable, who was a prototype for Ethel in the 1940s and 1950s. Archie, Reggie, Betty, and Veronica appear in their classic wardrobe during the flashback.
