Sage Serpents: The best ‘Riverdale’ quotes to live by

Over the course of four seasons, The CW’s Riverdale has had some iconic lines. From characters reading each other to some unexpected words of wisdom, the denizens of Riverdale have a lot of hard-won wisdom to share. None more so than those of the Southside Serpents, sure they’re a gang but also Sheriff’s deputies and a family as well.

With that hard-won wisdom of the Southside, the Serpents have dropped some true nuggets of wisdom over Riverdale’s four seasons. Here are some of the best quotes to live by from Riverdale’s Southside.

F.P. Jones (Skeet Ulrich) 

“Here’s the thing about snakes. You don’t step on them, they got no reason to bite.” 

“Snakes don’t shed their skin so easy.” 

“You do not want to be in bed with a snake charmer.” 

Jughead Jones (Cole Sprouse) 

“But I’m still a Serpent, Dad. And this…this life that you wanted to protect me from. I’m proud of this. I’m proud of who I am. You can’t take that away from me.”

“There’s more than one kind of home invasion. It’s not always fast and violent. Sometimes we open the door and we let the intruder in ourselves.”

“Hey. We’re all crazy. But we’re not our parents, Betty. We’re not our family.”

“There’s a common misconception about fairy tales. They very rarely have a happy ending.” 

Toni Topaz (Vanessa Morgan)

“I have a better idea. Why don’t you just tell me what’s bothering you because clearly, you’re in a lot of pain.”

“You’re not loveless. You’re not deviant.”

Cheryl Blossom (Madelaine Petsch)

“I don’t care. I’ll start my own group. Rejection from society is what started the X-Men.” 

“Did you really think you could have a party without inviting moi?” 

“I’m in the mood for some hell-raising.” 

Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart)

“A serpent queen is a warrior queen.”

Sweet Pea (Jordan Connor)

“I like you and I would be with you, all in with you in a second. But, you sliding into my life when you don’t want to be alone … I’m not built that way. Maybe that makes me needy, but I just … I’ve got to get off this merry-go-round with you.”

Alice Cooper (Mädchen Amick/Lili Reinhart)

“We were lonely. We were young… attractive, in the same room. It was just once, a brief flame between two people, that existed in that one moment.”
