Betty Cooper: Ms. Grundy showed up in Riverdale a year ago, out of thin air. There is no record of her before that. Her Facebook, her LinkedIn account... they were all created a year ago. Before that she's a ghost, she doesn't exist. The only "Geraldine Grundy" I could find was a woman who died seven years ago.
Archie Andrews: Where did you find all this?
Veronica Lodge: The deep web, the dark internet. Check it, it's all online... simple Googling.
Betty Cooper: Bobby pin.
Veronica Lodge: Okay, Ms. MacGyver.
[unlocks the box]
Betty Cooper: I learned that from the Nancy Drew detective handbook.
Veronica Lodge: What's happening out there? Do we know? Is it about me?
Jughead Jones: I have a strong inkling, and no. Also, I'd let it go.
Veronica Lodge: Yes, but you're you and I'm me. You do you, girl. I'll be back.
Kevin Keller: What was it like before she got here? I honestly cannot remember.
Jughead Jones: [narrating voice over] It's been a week since the discovery of Jason Blossom's body. But his death would not be the first, nor would it be the last casualty that the town of Riverdale would suffer. The Twilight Drive-In, where I work; my home away from home. A piece of town history is closing for good, just when we needed a place to escape to the most. With Sheriff Keller knocking on every door, and neighbour suspecting neighbour, every day that passes is becoming more like Salem during the witch trials. And meanwhile, the girl next door, our friendly neighbourhood Hitchcock blonde, Betty Cooper, was wrestling with the knowledge that her best friend Archie Andrews was caught up in a forbidden romance.
FP Jones: [Jughead graffiti's his name on the Drive In Booth wall as FP shows up] They'll tear that booth down too. Raze the whole place. Send it to the junkyard. And us along with it.
Jughead Jones: Yeah. Maybe they'll save it. All the pieces. Store it in the town hall attic and rebuild it in a hundred years... wonder who the hell we were.
[They both smile for a brief moment. Jughead's smile fades]
FP Jones: Hmm. So where are you gonna live now?
Jughead Jones: I'll figure it out, Dad. I always do.
Cheryl Blossom: If I would have known Mama Lodge was working as a waitress at Pop's, I never would've given Veronica a spot on the Vixens. It's off-brand and it sends a false message of acceptance.
Jughead Jones: The Drive In closing is just one more nail in the coffin that is Riverdale. No, forget Riverdale- in the coffin that is the American dream. As The Godfather of indie cinema, Quentin Tarantino likes to say...
Kevin Keller: [interrupting] Please, God, no more Quinten Tarantino references.
Jughead Jones: What? I'm pissed. And not just about losing my job. The Twilight Inn should mean something to us. People should be trying to save it!
Veronica Lodge: In this age of Netflix and VOD, do people really want to watch a movie in a car? I mean who even goes there?
Kevin Keller: People who want to buy crack.
Jughead Jones: And cinephiles. and Car enthusiasts. Right Bets?
Betty Cooper: [Absent] Totally.
Jughead Jones: Anyway it's closing because the town owns it but didn't invest in it. So when an anonymous buyer made Mayor McCoy an offer she couldn't refuse,
Veronica Lodge: Anonymous buyer? What do they have to hide? No one cares.
Jughead Jones: I do! By the way you should all come to closing night. I'm thinking American Graffiti. Or is that too obvious?
Veronica Lodge: I vote for anything starring Audrey Hepburn. Or Cate Blanchett.
Kevin Keller: Or the Talented Mr. Ripley. Betty, your choices?
[Betty comes back into focus]
Veronica Lodge: Everything okay, B?
Betty Cooper: Yeah, I'm just thinking... um... maybe... Rebel Without A Cause?
[Jughead grins at Betty and both snicker]
Kevin Keller: [Notices Archie enter with his father and Ms Grundy] Now that's an odd combo of people.
Betty Cooper: I'll be right back.
Jughead Jones: [Trying to grab Betty's shoulder] No, Betty. Betty, don't!
Archie Andrews: How hard would it have been to give me little bit of a heads up?
Jughead Jones: Look- I am, by nature, a conscientious objector. Not saying anything to either you or Betty was the most moral, apathetic choice I could make.
Archie Andrews: But Jug! She's not gonna write about me and Grundy in the paper is she? Like she did with Chuck?
Jughead Jones: Dude, seriously? Okay, come on: think about what you're asking. If there was even an iota of a chance that something could hurt you in any way, Betty wouldn't do it... probably.
Archie Andrews: My god!
Jughead Jones: I'm kidding. But maybe she has a point. What do you see happening with Grundy long term? What do you want?
Archie Andrews: I want to be with her. I don't know how but I wanna hang on to what we have for as long as possible.
Jughead Jones: Yup. I feel that. I'm trying to hold on to something a lot older than me too.
Archie Andrews: If Betty's gonna do something crazy can you please let me know so I can do something to stop it?
