Polly: What is that? What did you find?
Cheryl: My Nana's ring.
Polly: She gave to Jason. He proposed to me with that ring. So how does your mother have it?
Cheryl: Hands off, goblin.
Polly: The only way your mom could have that ring is if she or your dad got it from Jason. And he wouldn't have given it up over his dead body.
[Cheryl grabs Polly's wrist]
Cheryl: Polly, you are carrying precious cargo, but if you think for one second that those babies guarantee your safety, you're in for a rude awakening.
Jughead: Is that why your mom invited my dad and I to dinner? So these two could break into his trailer while she interrogated him?!
Betty: No, I didn't know what they were doing. But yes, that is why she invited you guys.
Jughead: To think I was gonna pass moving to Toledo with my family for you. Before I went to my dad's trailer, you asked if I believed him. I said I did. Wasn't that good enough for you?!
Betty: It was! It was good enough. I tried to talk to her.
Jughead: You could've told me. You could've warned me about all this.
Betty: You were so excited, Jug. I didn't want to disappoint you.
Jughead: So instead you lied. You all lied to me.
Betty: Kevin said someone tipped off his dad. Was it you?
Alice: I was at the dance.
Betty: Answer the damn question, Mom. And don't lie. Was it you?
Alice: It was not. Though, I'm glad that you're safe and as much as I like Jughead, I am so glad that you're done with that family.
Betty: Done? I love Jughead. He's as much as my family as you are, more so right now.
Alice: You are not going anywhere, young lady.
Betty: I'm going to look for Jughead. Do not push me tonight, Mom, because I will push back.
Alice: Well, well, well...Mary Andrews.
Mary: Well, well, well...Alice Cooper.
Alice: I saw you swanning in earlier with Fred and Hermione. I didn't realize that you were polyamorous.
Mary: I don't think that's an actual word.
Alice: It's a compliment, Mary.
Alice: I couldn't be seen in the same room with those two not after all of their monkey business. Oh. Oh, did you not know?
Mary: You have been playing the same game since Junior High and it was tired even back there. Fred is a big boy and he can do as he pleases. I came here tonight to have fun with both of my dates. So if you have a problem with that...
Archie: I tried to help my dad, Ronnie.
Veronica: Archie, what did you say?
Archie: I told him not to sign the divorce papers, and I don't even know why. It's not like I even want them to get back together. Veronica, why do I keep doing this? I keep wrecking things.
Veronica: Welcome to my life. Every day I feel like there's a new secret, a new lie about my parents about what they've done. I don't want my mom to be guilty, Archie. I really want that to be a lie.
Betty: Why are you getting so upset? It's just a party, Jug.
Jughead: It's not just a party. It's the fact that you don't know, or even care, that this is the last thing I would want. You did this for you to prove something.
Betty: To prove what?
Jughead: You're a great girlfriend? I don't know. Doesn't it ever occur to you how different we are, like on a cellular DNA level? You're a straight-A student, a cheerleader. For God sakes, you're the perfect girl-next-door.
Betty: I hate that word.
Jughead: I'm the damaged, loner outsider from the wrong side of tracks. Betty, come on, who are we kidding?! We're on borrowed time.
Betty: I should've told you about Chuck, but I lied. And instead threw you this party you didn't want.
Jughead: Why did you?
Betty: Something is very...very wrong with me. Like, there's this darkness in me that's overwhelming. Sometimes I don't know where it comes from, but I think that's what makes me do things.
Cheryl: Secrets & Sins, it's like Truth or Dare in which we own our truths by telling it like it is. I'll start the game with...Veronica Lodge.
Cheryl: Let's begin with the day you and your mob wife of a mother came to town for a so called fresh start. Tell us Veronica, what's so fresh about defiling Archie Andrews in a closet?
Veronica: That was your doing...
Cheryl: Moving on! To dear Daddy Lodge, isn't it true that your father, from prison, illegally purchased the drive-in land? Which makes me wonder, what else is he doing from behind bars?
Veronica: Well, I can't speak for my father, but I can think of someone with a very dirty secret. Specifically, Cheryl killing her very own brother.
Cheryl: Everyone knows how much I loved my brother.
Veronica: Exactly. But did you love him maybe in ways a sister shouldn't love a brother? And as you got older, Jason started to think it was strange, unnatural. So he chose Polly over you, so you shot him between the eyes with one of your father's many hunting rifles.
Kevin: This is riveting. I. Can't. Breathe.
Veronica: Ethel, I meant what I said. I'm sorry, Ethel. For everything my family did to yours.
Ethel: It's not your fault what your dad did, and you were there for me when no one else was. More than once.
[Motions to seat next to her]
Ethel: Seats not taken if you want it.
[Veronica sits and Jughead's voiceover begins]
Jughead: It seems that for Veronica, the sins of the father will remain simply that.
Archie: Cheryl, you okay?
Cheryl: What did my dad say to you? That I'm a trainwreck? Jason was the golden boy, but me...people hate me, Archie. At school, that's fine, whatever, but this is my family.
Archie: Forget them, Cheryl. Forget what they think. I think you're awesome.
Cheryl: Oh Archie. Sometimes I think you may be the only decent person left in Riverdale. The only person who doesn't want something from me or doesn't want me to apologize for who I am...or what I want.
[She kisses Archie]
Betty: Mom...Archie, he talked to Polly. She's okay, Mom. She didn't choose the Blossoms over us, she's actually there to spy on them.
[Sniffles and drinks]
Alice: You know, when I went after this story, I thought in the back of my mind, "What if..what if this is finally the time she doesn't come back?"
Betty: She will, Mom! Right now, she's our woman on the inside. We're going to write this story.
Jughead: Come write with us at the Blue and Gold.
Alice: The school newspaper?!
Jughead: Yea, it's what we are, but I'm pretty sure our annual operating budget is bigger than the Register's.
Archie: Val! Wait...you were right about being bought and taking shortcuts. After last night, I'm done with the Blossoms.
Valerie: Archie, I'm done with you. Ever since we've started dating, you've ignored me. You've ditched me.
Archie: Val, please! Let me make it up to you.
Valerie: Sorry, Archie, but unlike you, I won't be bought.
[Puts in earbuds and runs off]
