2. Because not everyone can get one over on Zach and win. (Yes, Richie used a car to do it but it still counts!)
3. Because of lines like this :

Instead, I see this:
4. Because he has an unnatural preoccupation with spelling.
5. Because he's really good with kids.
6. Because he is really good with numbers and will look really sexy while he balances my check book.
7. Because he makes Annie interesting.
8. Because even though he is a total psycho he is still nice to Lily.
9. Because it will be super smoking hot when someone somewhere realizes Richie and Amanda need to be together.
10. Because he's just Richie and that's all he needs to be.
