* One ''Franchise/ArchieComics'' story had Dilton answer every question on a game show right... except the final one, "How many innings are in a baseball game," which was accidentally ''easy''. He got a consolation prize of a lifetime supply of sporting equipment.

* One story in ArchieComics has Reggie on a thinly veiled parody of ''Series/LoveConnection''. He says he has a good time, but his date calls him a stuck-up, self-centered dick. His consolation prize is a board-game version of the show, and he's noticeably choking slightly as he accepts it. The last panel is everyone in the main cast, even his longtime rival Archie, feeling sorry for him for being humiliated on national TV. Even the ''reader'' is sorry for him.
