The Liars dig and dig and dig and then it's not even Anne Sullivan with a straw coming out of the dirt, it's just a super scary mannequin face and those boots sticking out like Nessarose.
Liars: "I knew A was going to screw us, but I never thought it would be this elabor..."
Like An Entire SWAT Team: "Little girls! Put down that shovel and put your faces on the ground! Stop digging! You are under arrest for something!"
Liars: "You realize this is like the cutest we've ever..."
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms: "Little girls! We will not hesitate to open fire on you unless you put your hands in the air and drop that shovel! You are arrested for digging! And adorable!"
Parents: "Thank God Spencer's mom exists this week. She's in there now walking them through this terrifying situation where they got caught digging in a hole and still haven't even been booked on official charges."
Ella: "I'll be right back. I have to chase somebody into the cranberry bog."
Worth noting that everybody looks great in this police station. The girls, even outside in the holding area the parents and various boyfriends look absolutely gorgeous.
Ezra: "My lady-love girl-child! Is she safe?"
Ella: "You need to get on up out of this piece, homeslice."
Ezra: "But I care only for the lily-white virtue of my maiden! I must know how she fares!"
Ella: "You know, I thought you were this awesome teacher. That's the part that really chaps my ass."
Ezra: "You know not what you do! For I am in love! True and real, hand-holding, paper-bagging dorkified love! Stop intimidating me!"
Ella: "Oh, you think I'm scary? Spencer Hastings has literally the scariest parents you've ever met. Those creeps make you want to move into the Cavanaugh house. Trust me when I say you are getting off easy."
Ezra: "I never got off at all! It was a chaste love, a pure... Wait, what? You think I'm dating Spencer?"
Ella: "Yeah. And I will cut off your balls unless you leave right this second."
Ezra: "Hmm. A chance to stand up for myself and finally declare my love, or a quick exit that will irrevocably fuck everything up for everybody."
Swish. Nothin' but net. Well done, Fitz.
