Hal: I never doubted for a moment you’d come. You’re the only one who understands me. Just like me.
Betty: You did ... unspeakable, horrible things. I’m not like that. I am not like you.
Hal: Aren’t you?
Hal: Then why are you here?
Betty: To say goodbye, Dad. And also to say, no more darkness. No more evil. It’s over.
Fred: Was it close at least?
Hermione: Very. Less than 200 hundred votes.
Sierra: So what? You came to gloat?
Hermione: No, Sierra, I came to tell Fred that he ran a great campaign.
[She offers her hand and they shake hands]
Veronica: Daddykins, care to comment on the rumors that you’ve been having meetings with Claudius and Penelope Blossom in their barn?
Hiram: Certainly. I’m looking to diversity Lodge Industries holdings by possibly getting into the maple trade.
Veronica: So, it’s not that you enlisted Claudius to impersonate The Black Hood and take pot shots at Mom during the town hall debate?
Hermione: Veronica, have you lost your mind?!
Hiram: Your imagination is getting the better of you.
Veronica: Maybe, maybe not. But, I don’t think any of us in this room can deny that it’s at least possible that you’d put Mom in the crosshairs to pursue some personal political agenda
Jughead: What did I miss?
FP: What you did brought ever Seprent I’ve ever known out of the woodwork. You would’ve been proud of them, boy. It looked like we were gonna win the day, but in the end, there were just too many Ghoulies. It ewas like shooting snakes in a barrel.
Jughead: Why? Why did you go?
FP: I wanted to avenge you.
Jughead: I had an agreement with Hiram Lodge.
FP: There was no stopping the others. They were churned up about you and Fangs, even though Fangs is ... alive.
Jughead: Fangs is alive?!
[Hiram walks in worried. Hermione and Veronica sitting quietly at a table]
Hermione: There’s another dead body in the study.
Veronica: It’s your mess, Daddy. You clean it up.
Jughead: Fangs getting arrested. The riot. The Ghoulies showing up the night of the riot, Penny in tow. None of this just happened.
Hiram: Jughead, I generally have no idea what you’re talking about.
Jughead: You’ve been buying up everything you could, but you couldn’t buy us. So, you paid the Ghoulies and Penny to go to war with the Serpents to finally get rid of us once and for all. How much is this costing you?
Hiram: I’m hanging up now.
Jughead: Because I have a counter offer. Mr. Lodge?
Hiram: I’m listening.
Hal: Who am I, Betty? Say it. Say who I am!
Betty: You’re The Black Hood.
Hal: That’s right. Now say what I did.
Betty: You shot Mr. Andrews, you killed Ms. Grundy, Sugar Man, Midge, Dr. Masters. But the debate...
Hal: Was not me. I can’t take credit for that.
Veronica: Mom. Sheriff Pinada.
Hermione: Veronica, what are you doing here? You’re supposed to be at home with Andre.
Veronica: Andre’s in the car. We had to make a detour.
[Veronica looks at the Black Hood bounty sign]
Veronica: Good lord, Mom. Are you and Daddy trying to turn Riverdale into Gotham City?
Reggie: We were celebrating Fang’s arrest.
Archie: That’s not something to celebrate, you idiot. He didn’t do it.
Kevin: Archie, he had a knife on him.
Archie: Okay, we’re not having this argument, you guys. The Circle is officially disbanded.
Reggie: That’s not your decision to make, dude. You’re not the one paying us, Hiram is.
Archie: Wait, Mr. Lodge is paying you?
Reggie: Yeah. He’s the one that suggested we go out and have a little fun. He said you might’ve started The Dark Circle, but it was mine now.
Fangs: It’s bad, Jones. It’s really bad.
Jughead: So, talk to me, Fangs.
Fangs: On the opening night of Carrie when you were backstage filming your documentary and found me in Midge’s dressing room, I wasn’t just carrying her notes.
Jughead: You were hooking up. And you didn’t tell Sheriff Keller? Jeez, Fangs, you know how guilty this makes you look?!
Fangs: I know! I know.
Jughead: Did you do it?
Fangs: Of course not!
Hal: Penny for your thoughts, Hun?
Betty: I was thinking he was a test.
Hal: Who was?
Betty: The imposter, Chic, everything that he did to us, brought to us, was kinda a test. But, we survived and we’re stronger for it.
Alice: Well, that remains to be seen.
Betty: No, Mom, we are. And we’ll survive whatever comes next.
Cheryl: Betty, it’s okay, it wasn’t Chic.
Betty: But it could’ve been. Chic is probably out there with a bullet in his forehead or...
Cheryl: Or he got away and he’s on a train back to Transylvania.
Betty: I delivered to The Black Hood, Cheryl. That makes me a murder. I’ve been trying to prove my dad’s a killer, when really all I had to do was look in the mirror. Oh God! He got what he wanted. We’re the same.
