I'm not gonna ask what you did with Veronica at Cheryl's. I'm asking you now, right now, if you love me, Archie, or even like me?
Of course I love you, Betty. But I can't give you the answer you want.
You are so perfect. I've never been good enough for you. I'll never be good enough for you.

I find it absurd that the writers of this show are recycling old movie plots...
I didn't mind watching this show up until the most recent season (season 3)... The show was starting to get a bit out of hand due to the fact that the writers began trying to implement a new conflict into the show every season, but already with season 3 it is evident where they are getting "inspiration" from. Just from watching the first 4 episodes of season 3, you can see Shawshank redemption mirrored in the situation Archie is in (some form of prison or jail sentence)... From the warden, the written phrase framed in the wardens office to what is in my opinion is the most evident form of proof, the rock hammer Archie found in the bible...
At first I was disappointed, later deciding to overlook those miniscule details in the episode. Then came the next few episodes. The writers decide to implement a thrilling game into the show as they implement a board game, changing "dungeons and dragons" to "gryphons and gargoyles". Next, the flashback episode, featuring a late 80's or mid 90's group called the "midnight club" similar to that of "the breakfast club". The similarities are uncanny, and unfortunately these examples don't even begin to include the dialogue in other scenes which mirror the movies that writers have been "inspired" by as well... Frankly, I'm disappointed. I'm not sure if the demographic for this show is comprised of people who might be familiar with those classic movies listed earlier, but one can think that the writers' goal is to steal from the successes of those past movies.
This is just lazy writing with no originality.
