A square can be a rectangle because a rectangle just has to have four sides and they all have to have right angles, which a square does. But a rectangle can never be a square because a square HAS to have ALL EVEN sides with all right angles. A rectangle possibly could not have all even sides.

Is a quadrilaterial never a square?

It may, or it may not be. We cannot say a quadrilateral is never a square. A quadrilateral is a figure with four line segments for sides (edges) and four vertices (internal angles). If all the sides are the same length and and one of the interior angles is a right angle, all the interior angles will be right angles and you will have a square. All squares are quadrilaterals, but not all quadrilaterals are squares. Most aren't. A square is a special case of a quadrilateral. So is a rectangle. A square is a special case of a rectangle, while we're on the subject. Every square is a rectangle, but not every rectangle is a square.
