Riverdale Season 3 Episode 2 Quotes

Archie: If we weren't here, we'd be in high school joining clubs, trying out for sports.
Ghoulie: Not me. I dropped out in the fourth grade to run drugs to support my Nana.
Archie: That means you haven't known the triumphs and defeats, the epic highs and lows of high school football.

Betty: What caused the blue lips?
Doctor: The cyanide was mixed into a sugary drink called, “Freshade.” Blueberry flavored. There’s something dimly familiar about this. If you had asked me before if I thought this was murder or suicide, I’m not sure what it is. But, whatever it is, it is darker than what happened to Jason Blossom or with The Black Hood. No, what we’re looking at here, I believe, is the true face of evil.
