Ezra: Holy crap!
Ezra: You told me you went to Hollis.
Aria: No, I said I was thinking about majoring in English, and that's true.
Ezra: Look, I think you're amazing, Aria. When I first met you, I thought, "Who is this girl?"

Spencer: It is when you're giving false statements to the police. It's called obstruction of justice.Spencer: I've decided on the class I want to take at Hollis. But it's not for credit, Dad, it's for fun.
Peter Hastings: What's the point of that?Maya: So, I get your connection to Spencer. You both like to win.

Maya: And Spencer?
Emily: Spencer needs to win.Wren: You know, I didn't grow up in a family like yours, so I don't know that kind of pressure, but I can imagine it could be unbearable at times.

Hanna: Children. Your mom is making me hand out sugar-free lollipops to six-year-olds.

You know, maybe he took a break from sitting on his porch pulling the heads off squirrels.Hardy: [about Aria] Dude, you are so screwed.
Ezra: It - it's not what you think it is. Don't give me that look. I didn't pursue this, it just happened.
Hardy: And that makes it okay?
Ezra: Hardy -
Hardy: Ezra, she's cute, she's smart, I get it, there's no argument. But she's your student, man.
Ezra: That's not how I met her.
Hardy: It doesn't matter. When this is all over, she's gonna get her diploma. You're going to get a pink slip and an orange jumpsuit.Ezra: Who's "A"?
[Aria looks at the message on her phone: "Lucky you, Aria! Other girls have to do their homework. You get to do the teacher...--A"]

Hanna: Knock it off, Mona.
Mona: What? I think it's cute she's taking her Cinderfella to the ball.
Hanna: Can you get me fro-yo, with sprinkles? [Mona leaves.]
Spencer: Wow, that was exactly the reaction I want to avoid.
Hanna: Don't pay any attention to her. She's just insecure.
Spencer: Yeah, like a pit bull.Maya: If you and I start slipping up, we're going to be right back at the bottom again.
Hanna: Yeah. Well, I'm starting to think I've lost a few things on the climb up.Emily: I told you I needed space.
