Riverdale Season 1 Episode 9: "Chapter Nine: La Grande Illusion" Quotes
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.
