* After Valerie takes a stroll up Memory Lane, and witnesses some of the ups and downs that could ensue if she marries Archie, she peeks at some alternate "paths" for who could become Archie's wife. Some of them have their fair share of drama-Archie as Cheryl Blossom's HenpeckedHusband, Sabrina becoming BroughtDownToNormal as punishment for marrying a mortal, [[spoiler:Josie marrying Archie to create a LoveTriangle]]-but HilarityEnsues when Valerie encounters some {{Crack Pairing}}s (including one that pairs Archie with Ethel).

* In a short comic, Dilton is tutoring Moose on learning new and complex words which doesn't go well, as Moose misunderstands what Dilton is trying to explain to him. When Mrs. Grundy steps in and asks if there is a problem, Dilton tries to defuse the situation by telling her "that they're just having trouble with an Idiom" which, unintentionally and indirectly, [[CallingMeALogarithm offends]] Moose.

** In a last-ditch effort to save himself, Archie interrupts Mr. Weatherbee's parent-teacher conference at the school by bringing in Reggie to plead his case. Reggie does this by rattling off all of Archie's various pranks (which Mr. Weatherbee copies down) and then starts framing Archie for some of his ''own'' pranks, figuring that he might as well tie up some loose ends as long as Archie is in trouble. And the kicker? The reason Mr. Weatherbe wanted to talk to the Andrews was because [[spoiler:he wanted to tell them about a school event.]]

* In a story called "It's all an Act", Veronica has to perform a part in the school play. Her scene involves a woman angrily reprimanding her lover for arriving late at a meeting and leaving her waiting. Mr. Morgan, her acting teacher, feels that she fails to put enough emotion in her acting and depict real rage. In the night of the performance, Archie (who is playing the lover) arrives hours later than he should, and after having Veronica worried that she will not be able to perform her scene without him. Right on stage, Veronica starts reprimanding Archie with all her real rage. She does not even care about the play's scipt or her lines anymore. Mr. Morgan starts enthusiastically praising the apparent improvement in Veronica's acting skills, while Betty whispers to someone else that "Ron isn't acting" and Veronica is threatening to punch a rather intimidated Archie.

* One story has Betty outright tell Archie that he is Veronica's ExtremeDoormat when he tells her that Veronica called him over and he drops everything to go do so. The reason she did so was to showcase her learning the Japanese art of massaging someone's back by walking on them. When everyone meets up at the beach later on and Veronica's footprints are all over Archie's back (courtesy of dirty gym mats), Betty utterly loses it at learning that her "pet doormat" comment wasn't that far off after all.

Added DiffLines:

* Jughead asks his dad for help with a homework problem. After the two of them working together can't figure it out, they seek help from an even higher source: Jughead's grandpa!
* Archie and Jughead are visiting Jug's grandma and find that she's letting some neighborhood kids use her garage for their band after they helped repaint her house. When the kids demonstrate that their band is pure DeathMetal, the sounds cause the still-wet paint to ''fly'' off the house. Archie and Jughead get roped into the resulting punishment.
-->'''Granny Jones:''' ''[holding the keys to the garage]'' Now, this time, you'll wait for the paint to ''dry'' before playing your music, yes?\\
'''Everyone Else:''' [[NeverMessWithGranny Yes, Granny Jones]]!

Added DiffLines:

* Due to a breakdown in communication after two knives in the cafeteria suddenly become magnetic, the rumor ball rolls until everyone believes that Riverdale High is become a magnet school. When the superintendent arrives to eventually set things straight and find out how everything began, he ends up giving detention to the primary ones responsible: Archie, Jughead, Professor Flutesnoot, and ''Mr. Weatherbee''!


* In one AnimatedAdaptation short, Reggie splashes special paint on each of Archie+Jughead and Betty+Veronica to turn either their top or bottom half invisible. In order to fool Mr. Weatherbee, each pair stands close enough together to look like a single person. Later on, when all four are together and have to pull the same trick again, they mess up and it looks like Archie has Betty's legs and skirt while Veronica is wearing Jughead's pants and hat. Mr. Weatherbee understandably has a FreakOut.
--> '''Archie:''' I wonder what happened- ''[he sees how they're paired up]'' [[OhCrap Oh brother]]! ''[the camera zooms out to show the mess-up]''


* In one story, Betty and Veronica are jointly performing at some event and their fathers jointly attend the event to watch them. The girls are worried about how will their fathers interact, as they have never been friends, have very little in common, and often vocally express their opposing political beliefs (in this story, whether taxcuts stimulate the economy or not). They notice awkward silence between the two men, and fear that the night will end in a fight. They relax at seeing the two men amiably chatting and laughing about something, but they are too far to hear what is causing their mirth. The story has the fathers bonding through something they have in common: how ridiculous they find Archie and his goofs. They are happily exchanging stories about some of his most embarassing moments.

* One early story had the students taking a physical and the doctors being repeatedly baffled by Jughead's blood test results. They eventually tell him that, instead of blood, they found ''hamburger gravy'' and pull a ScrewThisImOuttaHere.
-->'''Archie''' I knew it! I knew it! Jughead has hamburger juice instead of blood!

* Archie once accidentally put Betty to sleep by stroking her nose (she claims beforehand that it was how Mr. Cooper puts her to sleep in her cradle days). After many failed attempts at waking her up, Veronica suggests a kiss on the lips, which works. Mr. Weatherbee, telling the story to Ms. Grundy, decides to demonstrate it with Jughead...and ''he'' falls asleep! Weatherbee, thinking Archie's got the "magic lips", tells him that he should wake Jughead up the same way. Arch's FreakOut was very understandable.
* One earlier short strip has Jughead warning Betty that Archie takes fishing very seriously. She doesn't listen, dives into the water, and hooks her swimsuit to make Archie reel her in. In the final panel, she's suspended upside-down as a fishing trophy while Jughead takes a picture and says, "IToldYouSo."

Archie worries that he's in some sort of trouble, so when Mr. Weatherbee drops by to visit, he comes running out in a dress and wig, pretending to be the new owner of the Andrews home and that there's a very sick child inside.

** This, of course, doesn't work, so when Mr. Weatherbee goes inside and meets with Mr. Andrews, Archie comes running in, screaming how there's a gas leak that will blow them sky-high. Everyone panics and runs outside...until Mr. Andrews remembers that they don't use gas-powered appliances.

* In an older story, Riverdale High is holding a 'Girls-ask-boys' type dance, and Archie and Reggie are happy that it'll be the girls' to sweat over getting a date ready. But Jughead points out that it's "First come first served", leading to the boys running from some {{Abhorrent Admirer}}s. The next day, the school staff see the three come out from some unusual places; Mr. Weatherbee spots Archie coming down from a tree, Ms. Grundy sees Jughead coming out from a sewer drain, and Prof. Flutesnoot catches Reggie entering his class through the window. Weatherbee and Grundy weren't impressed with the last one until Flutesnoot tells them, "It's a good trick if you can do it...I'm on the ''fifth floor!''"

** Something similar happened when Betty decided to soak in some Vitamin D in her backyard. Her mother advises her to use an older, moth-riddled swimsuit (grass stains are hard to remove) as a safety precaution. Archie thinks that she's going buff and tries to warn her that the backyard isn't exactly a good place for privacy. Betty, not wanting Archie to see her in the ruined swimsuit, grabs a towel and covers her front side as soon as she heard him. And then Jughead shows up behind Betty, and Archie thinks Jughead saw the goods. Not knowing why Archie is panicking, Betty decided to throw in the towel...literally. Archie faints before he could find out the truth.
