Spencer: (Stomps the fuck on up to the door because she is sick of running; who comes out when she gets to the porch is... Her Dad! What? She freaks out on her dad, of course. Because it is freaky!)
Dad: "We were just talking about fences and things. Improvements. In the middle of the night."
Spencer: "First of all, you set the zoning board on him so I know that's a lie. Why are you having secret meetings with everybody in Alison's family all the time?"
Dad: "I don't have to answer your questions."
Toby: "First of all, as though Spencer has ever let anything go in all of history. Second of all, stop throwing your weight around. Your attempts to preserve Spencer's sanity are endangering it, and I don't have to tell you what a thin line that is."
Dad: "I got you, boo. This is all your fault somehow! My responses don't make any sense!"
Spencer & Toby: (Try valiantly to shout him down, are brutally rebuffed. Spencer's Dad is, once again, like the scariest person on the planet.)
Dad: "Go to our house! It's next door to this house like everybody else's house is!"
Spencer & Toby: (Get in the truck and take off; Dad beats on the side of the truck but they keep going. Everything is so frightfully domestic in this episode.)
Anne: "While I dig through the files in my darkened office, I am going to feel crazy paranoia."
A: "That's a good idea, for I am watching you from the street."
Maya lives close by or something. Her old folks' home is in a neighboring county.
Maya: "I bet your mom's got her eyes on us even from Texas."
(She adorably picks up a potted plant on their table and yells hello Pam into it.)
Emily: "My mom got radically cool before she left town. I have different problems now. I guess I should apologize for A fucking up our relationship before."
Maya: "Yeah, you were real twitchy back in our first relationship."
Emily: "Let's get gay married and be lovers and live together forever I am so scared"
Maya: "Emily. Re. Lax."
(They hold hands and it's actually pretty awesome.)
Mikey has finally cracked; Aria finds him crying in his room and immediately jumps on him and holds onto him tight, and it's wonderful.
