Elio: From my family to yours. [Veronica looks at the bouquet of flowers] Veronica: While I love a grand gesture, Elio, diamonds are a girl’s best friend. Elio: These are for your father. I heard he was still in the hospital and I wanted to come here personally to let you know I’m praying he pulls through. Veronica: Well, to paraphrase Samuel Clemmons: “Reports of his death have been greatly exaggerated.”
Veronica: I’ve got a job for you, Jones. I want you to find out who shot my father. [Veronica drops a wad of cash. Jughead looks through it] Veronica: You’ll get the other half when you give me their name. Jughead: This is a big job. Look, half the people in this town want to see your old man kick the maple bucket. No offense. Veronica: None taken. I’ll give you your first suspect: my mother.
