(Reggie is on a chair in Miss Grundy’s classroom placing a bucket full of water on the door frame as Betty looks on.)
Betty: Reggie Mantle, why do you do these childish things?
Reggie: Because I’m a kid at heart.
(Betty has her arms folded as Reggie climbs down.)
Betty: A black heart.
Reggie: Aw, it’s just me having fun with Needlenose.
(Betty turns to Reggie as Reggie smiles and poses like he’s won a medal.)
Betty: You’re picking on Jughead again?
(Reggie points to the water bucket.)
Reggie: It’s my hobby.
Reggie: And for today’s lovely audience, I’m bringing out a classic. The old, dependable water bucket above the door frame.
(Betty is talking with Reggie as Reggie turns to the doorway and seems like a cat who has cornered a mouse.)
Betty: And how do you know Jughead will be the one to enter the classroom?
(Reggie turns to talk with Betty who seems to be taken back by how much thought Reggie put into his words.)
Reggie: Miss Grundy asked us three to help after school, she got called to The Bee’s Hive so that’s a few minutes and it will take Jughead forty seconds to finish his afternoon candy bar plus the distance to the class at his average rate of speed.
(Reggie begins to laugh as Betty frowns.)
Reggie: And if not him and it’s some hapless sap—it’s still funny!!
(Betty is talking with Reggie as puts a finger over his lips for her to keep quiet as the door begins to open.)
Betty: With that malodorous attitude you’re the one who needs to be all wet.
Reggie: Shhh! Here he comes.
(Jughead walks through the door as the water bucket stays on the frame, with it just teetering. Reggie looks on thwarted. Jughead is finishing his candy bar and has two books under his left arm.)
Jughead: Hey, guys. Sorry if I’m late, but my Nutty Buddy is a good friend who I like to spend time with before we part ways when I open and close my mouth.
(Reggie points up at the bucket as Jughead looks up.)
Reggie: Okay, how did you do that! I set that up perfectly! You should be wetter than a submarine!
Jughead: Huh. Yep. You sure did.
(Jughead walks past Reggie who becomes upset.)
Jughead: My best guess is that you’ve used that bucket so much it got rusty on you.
Jughead: Just give it a second or two. It’ll fall eventually.
(Reggie moves backwards as he yells.)
Reggie: That’s the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard! It’s a bucket! It’s made to be wet because it was created to carry water!
(Reggie is talking as the bucket falls on his head.)
Reggie: And rust wouldn’t stop gravity from—
(Miss Grundy is at the door way with a mop as she looks confused at the scene. Reggie is trying to get the bucket off of his head as Jughead comments. Betty has hand over her mouth as she laughs.)
Miss Grundy: Okay, I managed to find a mop, but I can’t find where Mr. Svenson kept all the…buckets?
Jughead: Don’t worry, Miss Grundy. Reggie has it all covered.
Betty: Drenched might be a better word.
