I don't believe in coincidence. I believe coincidence is the universe's way of telling you something. And what are the odds that one day on the subway Riley falls into my lap? It's always been Riley. It's always been Riley since day one.
Lucas I choose you, Riley. And I really want you to choose me.
Riley: I do. I always did.
Lucas: No matter whatever happens to me in my whole life, you will always be my first girlfriend. Years from now, whenever anybody asks me, "Who was your first girlfriend?", I will always answer "Riley Matthews".
RIley: And I will always answer "Lucas Friar". I hope that you get to be a veterinarian someday.
Lucas: And I hope that wherever you are, you get to keep being Riley.
—Lucas and Riley in Girl Meets Goodbye

The two are very close friends and both share similar traits of caring and standing up for others. The moment Lucas and Riley share a smile on the subway, Riley is immediately smitten and develops a crush on him. However, as their relationship develops, her original small, shallow crush on Lucas, turns into a strong, and real relationship. Her feelings for him continue to remain the same throughout subsequent episodes (although some episodes focus less on their relationship than others). For Lucas, it has been evident that he does return the feelings, but he is not as expressive as Riley is. As of Girl Meets Ski Lodge (Part 2) the two start dating.

Lucas and Riley went on their first date and shared their first kiss in the episode Girl Meets First Date. In Girl Meets the New World, their relationship is discussed, and they do date, however this was due to peer pressure, which leads to them breaking up. They decide to remain close friends but nevertheless, their mutual strong feelings for each other remains the same as always.

In Girl Meets Texas (Part 1), after Riley discovers Maya has feelings for Lucas, she begins to realize her "true" feelings for him, and calls him her brother. Lucas states that Riley is very important to him and that he might not have survived in N.Y.C. without her but after she states her "true" feelings for him he is shown to be a little confused.

In Girl Meets Texas (Part 2) he asks Riley at the campfire "what are we" after she says she told what they were he says "what if that's not what i think we are". These two moments make it clear about Lucas's strong feelings towards Riley and shows that he does in fact still has strong feelings for Riley. However, after confiding with Farkle in Girl Meets Texas (Part 3), Riley admits that she pretending to look at Lucas as a brother rather than as a boyfriend, out of loyalty to Maya, who likes Lucas.

In Girl Meets the New Year, Lucas gets upset when he thinks Riley hasn't invited him to her party. She assures him that everyone is invited and that she only thought about the party a few seconds ago (it was said that Charlie told Lucas about the party after Charlie was listening to Maya and Riley's conversation). During the party Charlie brings out the Couples Game to which Riley and Lucas doesn't want to play at first but after Charlie edges Lucas to play, he accepts. Lucas and Riley get questions relating to their current situation. Lucas' question was " How would you describe your personality?: library? (Lucas and Riley) or campfire? (Lucas and Maya). Riley's question was "Have ever kept secret from someone you loved?". They both don't answer their questions and with Riley's question she ends the game. On the roof and after ending things between her and Charlie, Riley witnesses the conversation between Lucas and Maya. She then just gets up and is about to leave the roof however Farkle reveals her secret. After everything and everyone has left, the episode ends with a cliffhanger of sorts for Girl Meets Legacy. It ends with the three of them sitting on a bench with things between them being left unclear and awkward.

In Girl Meets High School (Part 1), Lucas and Riley start dating since he can't decide between her or Maya. Therefore, he begins dating Maya at the same time.

Then in Girl Meets Ski Lodge (Part 2), Lucas asks Riley and gives her a jelly bean whilst saying, "I choose you, Riley. And I really want you to choose me". Riley takes the bean out of Lucas' hand, and says, "I do. I always did". The two get together.

Girl Meets the Secret of Life

Riley: Dad, you know something?

Lucas: Back in Texas...
Riley: [to Lucas] Do I know you?

Riley: Deny it.
Lucas: Riley...

Riley: Tell me whoever this Zay kid is that he just can't come in here and change you from the Lucas we know. Tell me nothing changes.

Riley: I like you. I went on my first date with you. Do you think it's right to let me like you without telling me who you are?

Lucas: You know who I am. I'm Ranger Rick. We rode on a white horse. I asked for your father's permission just to go on a date with you. Who does that?

Riley: Were you thrown out of school?
Lucas: Yes.
Riley: For a whole year?

Lucas: Yes.

Riley: Why wouldn't you tell me about this?
Lucas: It's not something I'm proud of. I thought I could start over. I guess I was wrong. I do something, and that's the end of you.
Riley: You think that's what I'm upset about? Whatever you did? [Lucas stares at her] ...then I don't know you. And you don't know me.
Lucas: Why are you acting like this?

Riley: Friends talk to you, and real friends listen, remember? I would've listened. I'm your friend. Whatever you did, why wouldn't you trust me with it? People who care about you are supposed to trust you with stuff.

Lucas: Mr. Matthews teaches us about a lot of things. [directed at Riley] He's open-minded that way.
Riley: [not looking at Lucas]He can be open-minded because he knows who we are.

Lucas: [amused and impressed] Ooh, she took us both out.

Lucas: Uh, Riley, I could use some water over here to wash this off.
Riley: Oh...water? You want some water?

Lucas: Yes please?

Riley: When are you going to tell me what you did?
Lucas: Fine, you want me to tell you what I did?
Riley: Everything.
Lucas: Okay...good...just give me the hose...and I'll tell you. Good...girl...
Riley: Fine. [Lucas smiles at her] Thank you.

Lucas: No, thank you.

Riley: [being sprayed by Lucas] Wait a minute! Wait! Wait! Lucas! I lost my contact lense!

Lucas: [stops spraying her] Oh my gosh Riley! I'm so sorry! I didn't mean to do that.

Riley: [pushes Lucas against the car] You were the first boy I ever liked. That's a big deal for me. Are you worth it? Tell me, and I'll believe you. I want to believe you. Are you worth it?

Lucas: Yes.

Lucas: Riley, sometimes things come out when they're supposed to come out.
Riley: As long as you're not different than I think, because I think a lot of you.
Lucas: I used to be different than I am now.
Riley: What happened?

Lucas: I came here.

Lucas: [serious] And I care about my friends. Riley, you understand that better than anyone.
Riley: [looks at him nervously]
Lucas: [yelling] What was I supposed to do?!
Riley: [looks down]

Lucas: [stares at her and realizes he yelled at her] ...I'm sorry I got mad. I'm working on it, okay?

Lucas: [looks around, confused]
Lucas: Oh, you can't go to the dance?
Riley: Unbelievable.
Lucas: Charlie, you may not know this, but Riley and I kinda have an 'unofficial thing' going.
Lucas: [looks to Riley, hurt] You let him see your notebook?
Riley: [smiles reassuringly] It was only one time.
Lucas: I just naturally assumed we were going together.
Riley: What...?
Lucas: I thought we were going together, I'm―I should have asked.
Riley: What?
Lucas: I'm sorry you can't go.
Riley: I just had this vision in my head about how the semi formal was suppose to go. How Lucas would ask, the dress I would wear, the corsage he would give me.
Riley: Hi.
Lucas: Hey.

Opinion About Each Other

Lucas Friar: He thinks of Riley as more of a friend, which is proven in multiple episodes. However he has shown to have romantic feelings for her as well, as shown in when he gets jealous that she went with Charlie to the semi-formal and assumed that they were both going together without him asking her and when he asked her out and they kissed and he smiles back at her after it. Lucas called her "The Pretty Brunette Who Never Gives Up On Anyone Or Anything And No Sacrifice Is Too Big For Her Friends," showing he thinks a lot of her. Lucas trusts Riley as he told her about what he wanted to be when he grows up. In Girl Meets Rileytown he shows that he is very protective of her as he gets very upset to hear that Riley is being bullied and then forcefully breaks the piece of table that he was tied down to (Farkle tied him down knowing he would get upset) in order to go to her, when he reaches Riley's bay window he easily knocks down the "barrier" she put up in order to keep him out. He acted the same way with Farkle and Zay, two people he calls his best friends, proving he cares a lot about Riley and they have a good friendship. In the same episode he says he finds it unfair Riley is the first person to help her friends when they are in trouble but doesn't come to them when she needs help, he also offers to "take care" of the bully for her. In Girl Meets Texas (Part 1) he shows affection towards her when he tells her that she is very important to him and that without her he might not have survived N.Y.C.. However when she tells him that she thinks of him as a brother he looks confused and sad. In Part 2 of the trilogy, during the campfire Lucas asks her "what are we" when she states that she already told him he says "what if that's not what i think we are" implying he still has strong romantic feelings for her.

Riley Matthews: She thinks of Lucas as someone who will always be there for her. She has shown in many episodes that she has romantic feelings for him. In Girl Meets Semi-Formal, it was shown that she wanted to be more than a friend to Lucas, but in the end, she decided on something even better, which was to always have him in her life no matter what. However in recent episode the romantic feelings she has for him have been shown again as shown in Girl Meets Farkle when Lucas "proposes" (He was trying to get her to marry Farkle) to her she immediately says yes over and over again. Riley (and Farkle and Maya) changed Lucas when he came to New York from having anger issues to making him more calm and being able to control his anger showing that she's a good influence on him. It also shows she cares for his well being. In Girl Meets Friendship she didn't want to hurt Lucas by showing the video that Maya took showing that she never wants to hurt him and wouldn't want to no matter what. Riley also went on her first date with Lucas and it was the first time she initiated a kiss with someone. In Girl Meets the New World they went on their second date and she says that Lucas is one of her favorite people to talk to. In Girl Meets Texas (Part 1) Riley realizes that Maya has feelings for Lucas too and because of this she revels her "true" feelings that she has for Lucas (she tells him that they have a brother and sister relationship). She does this to give Maya a chance with him, however in Part 3 Farkle makes Riley realize that she is only lying to everyone about her feelings and that she really does love Lucas more than a brother or even a friend. Whether Riley truly loves him or just has a crush on him has been doubted, but she definitely cares about him very much and is attracted to him.
