Riverdale Season 3 Episode 20 Quotes

Jughead: There’s a lot of mythical stuff in this Gospel, Betty. The gargoyles were thought to be evil spirits that lived in the clouds, preying on people. So, The Gryphon Queen turned them into stone, they fell from the kingdom and shattered when they hit the earth.
Betty: Jug, all this lore builds up The Gargoyle King to be some kind of supernatural creature, but this guy is just a serial killer. Just like my dad. The Black Hood was flesh and blood, and so is The Gargoyle King.
[Betty gets up from her seat]
Betty: Which means ... that he can die.
[Betty removes Hal’s photo from the evidence wall]

Toni: I’m sorry you won’t get to be prom queen, babe. I know how important it was to you.
Cheryl: It’s okay, Ti Ti. Edgar gave me something better than a queenship: humility.
Toni: You can’t mean that.
[Cheryl sighs]
Cheryl: No, you’re right. I can’t and I don’t, and suddenly being a “Farmie” is making a lot less sense to me.
