My love for Archie comics is ridiculous and indefensible. I can offer no apologies or explanations; even I don't understand it. [some discussion of female characters] ...As for the boys, I always passed over Archie (nice guy, doofus) and Reggie (baselessly arrogant)to indulge a renegade crush on Jughead; as his web page says with classic bad comix grammar: beneath Jughead's appearance as a slacker lies a very sharp mind...Beneath Jughead's wacky, zany and sometimes totally spaced out personality lies one really cool dude who sees the world a lot differently than his friends. Being normal like everyone else doesn't suit Jughead one bit, he's as unique as they come, and he loves it. After all, who else in their right mind would purposely try to act like Jughead? The only downside is, Jughead just doesn't date. What's the deal? Is he gay? (I could see him and Dilton Dailey getting together.) Is he sublimating his need for companionship with his obsession for french fries and choc'lit malts? Or is he just the classic romantic loner, so mysterious, so inaccessible? I'll just have to keep reading to see if anyone ever breaks that Brando-like shell of indifference.
"I got into the habit of putting exclamation marks at the end of sentences instead of periods because reproduction on pulp paper was so lousy. So once, by accident, when I signed a script I put the exclamation point after my 'S' because I was just used to going to that end of the typewriter at the time. And Julie saw it, and before he told me, he goes into the production room and issues a general order that any mention of Elliot Maggin's name will be punctuated with an exclamation mark rather than a period from now on until eternity."
