Byron: "Mike, you have to come to this total drag of a party, okay?"
Mike: "I'm going to be stealing mortar shells and napalm from area survivalists for when I blow up the school, but thanks for the invite."
Byron, getting weirdly intense: "Mike, I'm serious. Come to this party or I will devastate your already weak grasp on reality."
Mike, ditto: "Sometimes our family dog tells me to cut off your face and wear it over my face and step through a door of flesh into a new world of complete order and blessed silence."
Byron: "This party is very goddamned important to your mother, Michael."
Theories on Mirror Thing: Maybe it's heartwarming, and Byron loves Mike more than it seems like right now. Maybe it's foreshadowing how Ella and Ashley are getting closer to intuiting the existence of A, and thus in terrible danger just like Therapy Anne and her brown Tory Burches. Maybe it symbolizes that Mike is going to kill everybody in Rosewood and then drive away from their smoking corpses while blaring the Cardigans' "The Boys Are Back In Town." Maybe just like everybody else on this show, Mike is about to get molested by somebody's father.
MAYBE ALL OF THE ABOVE
Spencer: (Jumps out of the woods and into Toby's pants, startling him.)
Toby: "Can I just have a grilled-cheese sandwich instead? Being an emancipated minor who's afraid to go home can be kind of exhausting."
Spencer: "What about this Units dress from 1982 is not turning you on? Look, it turns into overalls with one simple gesture."
Peter: "Oh, I'll give you a grilled-cheese sandwich. Of Menace!"
Spencer: "Now it's culottes! And a matching pink-and-black headband!"
Peter: "Can I see your architectural drawings of how you will landscape our home?"
Spencer: "Now it's a sports bra with matching midi-skirt!"
Peter: "Toby, these landscaper drawings are absurdly complex. I'm impressed enough to overlook the fact that you are a high school dropout and choose to believe that you have an advanced degree in landscaping design. Thanks!"
Spencer, tangled all up in her shit: "Somebody help me out of my predicament!"
COUGAR TOWN HALL MEETING
Aria: "Jason, why are you having a meeting with my mother in my English class? And why are you trying to stare a hole in my face?"
Jason: "I was here offering to help the school guidance counselor talk to kids about the dangers of drugs. I don't know if I've mentioned this ever on this show, but I used to smoke marijuana. If I can keep even one kid from murdering his sister and then getting amnesia, it will be worth it."
Ella: "Hey Jason, Mr. Montgomery and I are having an ill-advised party and apparently we're inviting whoever the fuck appears in front of our faces. Interested?"
