Aria: Finally cracks. Possibly looking more gorgeous than ever before. Asks for her phone call, which she didn't use before because her family is in disarray and that's when Aria keeps secrets.
Cops, Incl. Garrett: "That's so weird about page five of Alison DiLaurentis's autopsy, how it went missing. Did you know what was on that page? Analysis of all the trace physical evidence found on her body. That seems hefty to me. In terms of bringing about a conviction. Good thing we work for Rosewood PD, where somebody's random memory of something unrelated is just as good as physical evidence."
Aria, losing it gloriously on the phone: "I made a terrible mistake! And I need you!"
That is some good crying, like, she's so ashamed of whatever she's about to do in her flashback that she can barely squeak it out, and then she covers her face... What an amazing little scenelet. Good on ya, Hale. That might be the best part of the episode. Spencer turns in an admirable meltdown in a few, but for some reason this whole bit with Aria really got to me. You buy that she's in hell. I guess that's because we're both really pretentious and prefer to think of ourselves as wonderful people all the time.
HOLLIS: SIX HOURS AGO
Jackie: "Hey, little girl child. Are you looking for Fitz?"
Aria: "No, I have to present you with this evidence of your forgery or else the therapist gets it. You have no idea how shitty I feel about this, despite it being exactly what I want."
Jackie: "Okay. Does EZ know about this?"
Aria: "Ugh, does he have to? Just leave town. I am totally sorry about this! I feel gross!"
Jackie: "Not as gross as you're gonna feel, little lady."
Needless to say, Ezra immediately calls Aria and she just ignores the call because she feels gross.
PRE WEDDING-RUINING JITTERS: 5 HOURS AGO
Emily: "So how are you going to wreck this wedding?"
Hanna: "I'm more of a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants kinda gal. You may have noticed."
Emily: "What worked for me is, you do something even worse and then step back from it. Like, coming out as a lesbian was going to be pretty weird for my parents, so I showed them Maya who is the worst, so then me being a lesbian was like, the better option. Lesser evil, as it were."
Hanna: "I get it. Like how Paige was just some crazy bitch, until you meet her dad, and he's twice as crazy and ten times more of a bitch. Or like how Jenna's pottery would be super annoying, except for the flute thing..."
Emily: "...And her short stories about blind girls, exactly. Now you are getting it."
