Listen, kids. This campfire stuff is fun, it really is, but it doesn't matter how painstakingly we go over these sewer plans or how many damn flashlights or helmets you've got in that box. When the sun comes up, I'm dust, and I would suggest that you follow me and get the hell out of Dodge!
~ Richie in the miniseries.
I told you Bill, I told you, I don't wanna die, It's your fault. You punched me in the face, you made me walk through grey water, and you brought me to an old crack-head house, and now...we're gonna have to kill this fucking clown. WELCOME TO THE LOSERS CLUB, ASSHOLE!
~ Richie to Bill, and then to Pennywise.

Biography

Richard "Richie" Tozier is the son of Wentworth and Maggie Tozier, and was born in 1945 in the novel, 1947 in the miniseries, and on March 7, 1976 in the 2017 adaptation. Despite the events of the novel, Richie had a great upbringing with his family, as he was close with his father. Mr. Wentworth was greatly fond of his son, as he happily indulged with doing voices like his son, as his mother wanted to understand Richie better.

In his childhood, he was friends with Bill Denbrough, Stan Uris, and Eddie Kasbrack, and would later befriend Ben Hanscom, Beverly Marsh, and Mike Hanlon. He was nicknamed "Bucky Beaver" by the school, as he had big front teeth, and hated wearing thick glasses, but found comfort in his idol, Buddy Holly. He was also nicknamed "Trashmouth", as he was foul-mouthed and loud, as he accidently insulted Henry Bowers and his gang. In the novel, it's assumed that he has ADHD, as it's stated that doesn't have much control of what he says or does.

After It was defeated by the Losers, they left the sewers with Eddie being dead when he was killed by It. This caused Richie to be distraught as he refused to leave Eddie behind. The Losers successfully escaped the sewers, and Richie later returns to the Kissing Bridge to carve the word R+E in honor Eddie before leaving Derry. Richie understood that Eddie already knew that.
