When Archie's car comes alive, it becomes this.this.
** In the episode "Zombies of Love" after Veronica gets a voodoo witch to give her a love potion (disguised as salt) which she would secretly feed to Archie, Archie becomes this; it starts with him being overly affectionate and soon Veronica becomes his obsession. It gets worse when Veronica leaves the salt at Pops for Jughead, Betty, Reggie and everyone else there to use by accident. Towards the end she has everyone chasing after her obsessively, mentioning that she was "their's". Shudder.

** A more [[DownplayedTrope downplayed]] version but "Something is Haunting Riverdale High" features Archie looking legitimately guilty when he realizes how badly he's been neglecting Big Ethel, Midge and Dilton after they all remark on how invisible they feel most of the time.

It's programmed to test a new chair that feeds people, it overfeeds Jughead to the point of burying him in burgers and asks to be let go.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: The plot of "Little Chock'lit Shoppe of Horrors" started due to the Chock'lit Shoppe losing customers to a new restaurant named "Speedy Burger", who uses microwaves to serve food faster. Though the Stanley 9000 helped him regain customers, Speedy Burger ceased to be mentioned, so it isn't seen if they're still a problem after the Chock'lit Shoppe was returned to normal. Though considering they reheat pre-made food with microwaves, they would have probably shutdown.
