Riverdale Season 1 Quotes
Archie: How long?
Jughead: Well, since they shut down the drive-in. That's where I was living before.
Archie: Why the hell aren't you living at home?
Jughead: Truth is things aren't great at home.
Archie: With your dad?
Jughead: Yeah. He kinda fell off the wagon. After your dad fired him to tell you the truth. He hasn't had a job since. He keeps promising that he will get his act together, but my mom couldn't take that roller coaster anymore. So, she grabbed Jellybean and went to live with our grandparents.
[School bell rings]
Archie: God Jug, why didn't you tell me? And where does your dad think you are?
Jughead: He thinks I'm couch-surfing.
Archie: Screw that! Live with me.
Jughead: It's temporary. I'm going to figure something out. Just don't tell anybody, especially not Betty.
Archie: Betty? She's not going to care. If anybody's gonna to be a snob about that, maybe Veronica.
Jughead: Well, exactly. Don't tell her either.
Betty: Polly, everyone's worried sick. Why did you leave the home? You could've really hurt yourself.
Polly: I couldn't just stay there, waiting for someone who was never going to show. Jason and I, we had a plan to go to this farm upstate and raise the baby. It's where I still want to go, but I don't have any money. I don't have anything.
Betty: Why don't you just stay here?
Polly: Mom and Dad want me to give the baby up for adoption. They made that very clear, and that's not what I want.
Betty: Well this is their grandchild, Polly, and everyone knows your pregnant now. There's no more stigma.
Polly: You don't know what they'll do. And I won't have my baby raised in a home that doesn't want it.
Betty: Polly, give me a few days. I'll find you someplace safe here in Riverdale. Please, Polly. I cannot lose you again.
Veronica: When my dad got arrested, the police...the lawyers...the judge...the courts...they took everything from us. Our houses, our cars, our club memberships, our yacht. Even, I'm not kidding, the clothes off our backs. Anyway, my mom sat me down at the edge of my canopy bed and she told me not to cry, because there was one thing in this world that nobody could take away from me. Not ever.
Reggie: Your trust fund?
Veronica: My name, Reggie. Which after telling me "Nobody would ever take it," that is EXACTLY what she did! Like it meant nothing. Like it was nothing. Like I was nothing.
Kevin: You guys, oh my God!
Kevin: Cheryl tweeted, "#PollyCooperkilledmybrother, #nowheretohide, #sharpenyourpitchforks"
Betty: Oh no! We need to find Polly before the Blossoms do.
Mrs. Lodge: When your father was arrested, he made you a legal officer of Lodge Industries. Surprise! And two out of three signatures are needed to override the contract, which your father wants to give to a less than legit outfit.
Veronica: And you want my help to give it to your boyfriend? [Scoffs] I was going to apologize to you. If I sign that, will you stop seeing Fred Andrews?
Mrs. Lodge: Honey, I can't agree to that.
Veronica: Then that case, Mom, I'm sorry, but no. However, you're rationalizing what you're doing with Archie's dad, I don't want any part of it.
[Hermione forges Veronica's signature]
Betty: The night of the drive-in. Did you break into Sheriff Keller's house and steal his case files?
Mr. Cooper: What?!
Betty: You weren't at the drive-in. You weren't with mom when she put Ms. Grundy on trial. Where were you?
Mr. Cooper: Betty, what do you think I did?
Betty: Did you kill Jason Blossom?
[Alice Cooper laughs]
Mrs. Cooper: Him? You think that he killed Jason? Your father? You think that he has the stomach for that?!
Mr. Cooper: Alice...
Mrs. Cooper: I wish he killed Jason. I wish I had. After what Jason did to Polly. I swear Elizabeth. You're sounding crazy just like your sister.
Betty: Stop saying that, Mom. She's not crazy!
Veronica: Not to be "that girl", Archie, but I didn't get the memo we were adding another voice to the mix.
Archie: Hey, Ronnie, great news! Valerie quit the Pussycats.
Veronica: So that makes me...what then...backup?
Archie: No, I mean, you were just doing this as a favor to me, right?
Veronica: You're unbelievable, Archie. You literally have zero loyalty. You, Ginger Judas!
Josie: Mom, Valerie quit the Pussycats.
Mayor McCoy: Replace her!
Josie: Val writes our songs. She's irreplaceable.
Mayor McCoy: No, Josie, you're irreplaceable. Everyone else is...disposable. You know...maybe it's not such a bad thing to try a new voice? A different sound? You know how your father feels about pop music.
Josie: But it's not pop music this time.
Mayor McCoy: Well, he's catching a Red Eye and missing two concert dates to see you in this Variety Show. I would hate for you to let him down.
Josie: I understand, and I won't.
Mayor McCoy: Good. Because if you do, he will somehow blame me.
Betty: Juggy, I feel like I don't even know who my mom and dad are anymore.
Jughead: Betty...if your parents lied about Jason and Polly, there's probably more they lied about.
Jughead: Your dad said he would do anything to protect Polly. So the next logical question is, how far would he go to protect her?
Betty: Jughead, whoever broke into Sheriff Keller's house and stole all this evidence wasn't at the drive-in. My dad wasn't at the drive-in...
Veronica: Is this your playing hand?
Veronica: Archie! This hand is your instrument. You need to take better care of it. And yet, stop punishing yourself while you're at it. Are you sure?
Archie: I got slammed because I didn't know the play. I didn't know the play because, like an idiot, instead of memorizing my plays I was up late last night working on some of my songs with Valerie. God, I'm such an idiot.
Veronica: Valerie, huh? You know, I endorse this.
Archie: You jealous, Ronnie?
Veronica: Please...I've had my seven minutes of heaven with Archie Andrews.
[Patches his arm]
Mrs. Blossom: I told you, Cheryl. No more sleeping in Jason's bed.
Cheryl: I didn't. I was working on the eulogy for JJ.
Mrs. Blossom: Don't bother. You won't be speaking at his memorial. God knows what you'd say. Something to humiliate us?
[Crumples up eulogy]
Every town has one, the spooky house that all the kids avoid. Ours was Thornhill, the Blossom family's mansion, with it's very own graveyard. And trapped within its walls, like some Gothic heroine, was Cheryl Blossom, who's still grieving for her beloved brother Jason. Linked in death even as they were in life.Jughead
