Chapter One: The River's Edge[edit]

Jughead:: "Our story is about a town, a small town, and the people who live in the town. From a distance, it presents itself like so many other small towns all over the world. Safe. Decent. Innocent. Get closer though, and you start seeing the shadows underneath. The name of our town is Riverdale. And our story begins, I guess, with what the Blossom twins did this summer. On the fourth of July, just after dawn, Jason and Cheryl Blossom drove out to Sweetwater River for an early morning boat ride. And the next thing we know happened for sure is that Dilton Doiley, who was leading Riverdale's boy scout troop on a bird-watching expedition, came upon Cheryl by the river's edge. Riverdale Police dragged Sweetwater River for Jason's body, but never found it. So a week later, the Blossom family buried an empty casket, and Jason's death was ruled an accident, as the story that Cheryl told made the rounds. That Cheryl dropped a glove in the water, and Jason reached down to get it, and accidentally tipped the boat, and panicked, and drowned. As for us, we were still talking about the "July 4th tragedy" on the last day of summer vacation, when a new mystery rolled into town."

Hermione Lodge: Now brace yourself. The apartment's small, a pied-a-terre, but--
Hermione and Veronica: [Synchronized] "quality always."
Hermione: Plus, it's the only piece of property in my name and not your father's.
Smithers: Ms. Hermione, welcome home!
Hermione: Smithers! Oh, you are a sight for sore eyes.
Smithers: How was the ride?
Hermione: No traffic, thank God. Smithers, I'd like to introduce you to my daughter, Veronica.
Smithers: It's a pleasure, miss.
Veronica: Hi.
Smithers: I'll get the bags.
Hermione: Would you.
Smithers: Oh, and would you like some menus so you can order in?
Hermione: Oh, no. I have been craving one of Pop Tate's cheeseburgers since noon. Is his chock'lit shop still open?
Veronica: What is a chock'lit shop and why does it sell burgers?

Kevin Are you excited? Nervous?
Betty Both. I haven't seen him all summer.
Kevin Which is why nerves are acceptable, but we agreed Betty, It's time. You like him, he likes you.
Betty Well then why Kevin hasn't he ever said or done anything?
Kevin Because Archie's swell, but like most millennial straight guys, he needs to be told what he wants. So tell him, finally.
