Tuxedo Mark

This is a script that I had written and originally posted on the old forum. Another fan started illustrating it but didn't finish.

Page 01


Panel 1 (quadruple-sized)

Scene: Archie's bedroom

Archie is sitting at his computer, laughing.

He is watching a video on a YouTube-type site.

The image on the computer screen is of a man that bears a resemblence to a certain, well-known angry game reviewer.

ANGRY GAME REVIEWER:
This game is horrible!


Panel 2

Betty, Veronica, Jughead, and Reggie enter the room.

BETTY:
Archie, your mom said you were up here. We're supposed to practice. Remember?


Panel 3

ARCHIE:
Oh! Sorry, guys. I got caught up in watching this funny video.

REGGIE:
What is it?


Page 02


Panel 1

Betty smiles.

BETTY:
This guy is hilarious! He reviews bad video games and gets all mad about them. He's right up your alley, Reggie.

Reggie looks thoughtful.

REGGIE:
Hmm, I'll have to check his videos out when I get home.


Panel 2

ARCHIE:
He's even put his reviews on DVD and sells them! I have one of them.

Reggie looks even more thoughtful.

REGGIE:
Sells them, huh?


Panel 3

JUGHEAD:
So are we practicing?

REGGIE:
Wait, wait. How much money is he making, Arch?

ARCHIE:
I dunno. He's sold thousands of copies.


Panel 4

REGGIE:
Thousands? Y'know, I bet I can come up with something cool like that.

Betty has an amused grin, her arms folded.

BETTY:
Like what? Showing off your collection of photos of yourself?


Panel 5

Reggie is offended.

REGGIE:
Uh,...no! I'll think of something!

Betty looks smug.

BETTY:
I bet I could top it.


Panel 6

Reggie senses a challenge. He can't resist.

REGGIE:
Oh, yeah? Let's have a contest. Whoever can create a hit Internet series and make the most money in three months wins.

Betty grins.

BETTY:
You're on!

Veronica gets into it.

VERONICA:
Let's up the stakes! Last-place loser has to buy new equipment and a new van for the band!


Page 03


Panel 1

Jughead grins as he decides he wants in.

JUGHEAD:
I want in, too! I can create a hit series!

Veronica is dryly amused.

VERONICA:
That requires <effort>, doofus!

Archie looks thoughtful.

ARCHIE:
Y'know, I bet I could come up with something, too.


Panel 2

VERONICA:
Well, it looks like we're all in. Should we practice?

REGGIE:
Nah! I'm going home to work on my videos!


Panel 3

Reggie, Jughead, Veronica, and Betty head out the door.

Betty waves to Archie as she leaves.

BETTY:
Later, Archie!


Panel 4

And so the gang starts working on videos...

This comic book is awful!


Panel 5

He is busy preparing a hamburger pattie.

JUGHEAD:
Personally, I like adding some blue cheese into the patties.


Panel 6

Scene: Archie's garage

Archie is dressed in work clothes and standing in front of his car (nothing unrealistically old, please).

He is dirty. A video camera nearby records him.

ARCHIE:
I'm going to show you how to change your spaerk plugs. Trust me; I've had a lot of practice.

Oh. Hi, Cheryl.

Cheryl sits to Betty's right on the bench.

CHERYL:
What's wrong?


Panel 3

BETTY:
I've thought of an idea for a great series of videos, but I don't have the money to do it. The guys' videos have already gotten popular. I'm falling behind.


Panel 4

Cheryl smiles.

CHERYL:
I'll make you a deal. I'll give you the money, and, in exchange, you participate in my videos.

BETTY:
Really? That's it?


Panel 5

Cheryl looks embarrassed. Her tongue is sticking out in a cute, anime-like manner.

Well, that and give me a ride home. I just got out of a dental appointment. I forgot my cell phone at home, and I don't have any cash on me.


Panel 6

BETTY:
You've got a deal!

The birds stare at them, confused and surprised.

CHERYL:
My pleasure. You really have a talent for fashion design.

May I have photos taken for a layout in "Fresh"?

I'm shooting some musical performances, so I can become an Internet Rock sensation, and we need a keyboardist for our band.


Panel 3

Veronica is visibly angry.

VERONICA:
And what incentive do I have to help you with <your> videos?!

Simple. Blossom Industries buys and sells companies like Lodge Enterprises.

Veronica is visibly nervous and sweating.

VERONICA:
Uh, well, when you put it <that> way...

Cheryl has the same smug look on her face.

CHERYL:
You learn quickly.

That night...

Scene: Cheryl's bedroom

The girls are having a sleepover.

Betty, Cheryl, and Veronica are spread out on Cheryl's plush carpet, wearing their pajamas.

CD jewel cases (including an animated version of the "Josie and the Pussycats" movie soundtrack album cover), candy bar wrappers, crushed soda cans, etc. litter the floor. The girls are shameless slobs when no one's looking.

Cheryl's expensive stereo system on her dresser is blaring music.

STEREO:
(singing)
...and those three small words were way too late...

Betty, Cheryl, and Veronica are drinking cans of cola.

VERONICA:
That was fun!

BETTY:
Now comes the tedious part: trying to sell copies of our videos to people.

CHERYL:
You're on your own for that, sweetie.


Panel 2

Betty and Cheryl shake hands.

BETTY:
May the best girl win!

They are eating a large pepperoni pizza.

ARCHIE:
Okay, everyone, let's see who won. Reggie?

REGGIE:
My videos were hits, but, when I tried selling them on DVD, I got sued by every comic book company in America.

Cheryl smiles in amusement.

CHERYL:
You stupid sack of $#|t.


Panel 2

ARCHIE:
Jughead?

JUGHEAD:
I made around $5,000...and got some offers from some culinary schools.

Betty?

BETTY:
I made over $10,000 and got a job at "Fresh" - thanks to my best girl!

Cheryl holds up the latest issue of "Fresh". Betty and Cheryl are featured on the front cover.

CHERYL:
And I got an awesome photo shoot out of it.


Panel 4

ARCHIE:
Cheryl?

CHERYL:
I made over $1,000,000. Chump change, really. I still win, though, unless you or Veronica somehow outdid me.


Panel 5

Archie looks embarrassed.

ARCHIE:
Um, I made nothing, and I owe my dad a lot of money for car parts.


Panel 6

BETTY:
What about you, Ronnie?

Veronica looks embarrassed.

VERONICA:
Um, well...


Page 12


Panel 1

VERONICA:
Okay, I admit it. My idea was a bust. I must face the sad reality that there's not much demand for videos of watching me shop.


Panel 2

Cheryl pumps a fist in the air.

CHERYL:
I win!

Veronica frowns.

VERONICA:
Were you even officially part of the contest?

C'mon, people! Hurry up! We gotta get to Mega Records to play for those producers! This could be our big break! Chop, chop!

Veronica is angrily writing a check for a delivery man, who's holding out his hand for it.

Archie, Jughead, and Reggie are standing in the background, looking confused.

Archie is scratching his head.

ARCHIE:
What just happened?
