Synopsis
To help Jughead deflect Ethel's unwanted attentions, Dilton supplies him with an android bodyguard in the shape of a lovely young lady.

Indexer Notes

Dilton mistakenly refers to Melissa as a "bionic" unit, which would indicate a fusion of natural and artificial biological processes. Melissa is instead an android, an artificial unit made to resemble a human - - unless there's a human brain inside of Melissa.
