Cece: "So does douchebaggery run in the family?"
Aria: "Man, I hope Noel's not here. At this party he's hosting."
Spencer: "Um, what Aria means is essentially that they used to date."
Aria: "Not exactly... Okay, close enough. Bit of a reach, but a useful enough gloss on the awful reality of our lives."
To Doorman: "I'm Cece Drake! And you are nothing! These are my friends! You will stamp us!"
Aria: "Holden got into this party? Fuckin' Maya got into this party?"
Spencer: "I know, right? Like why would Maya St. Germain be hanging out with these college-aged..."
Aria: "-- Maybe she was a chaperone."
Spencer: "Or their Timothy Leary."
Cece: "Shut up and give me that admissions packet. You have to do this with some kind of grace."
Aria: "Spencer Hastings, playing it cool? I would pay an entire semester's tuition out of my own pocket to see something that effed up."
"THAT NIGHT" BUT NOT THAT "THAT NIGHT"
Maya: Reads a poem, again focusing on Time, note, ironically entitled "That Night."
Emily: Cries, strokes the screen. Emilys out all over everything.
Dire moments, last goodbyes
Your kisses dance like fireflies
I'm gone tonight to a dark unseen
A wish to take your light with me
You were my first, but it won't be our last
Time travels till it's in the past
You'd think our love was some thickening plot
They don't know that it's all we've got
Emily: "Jejune, with a slavish devotion to the rhyme scheme that practically voids its meaning altogether. C-."
Just kidding! She cries more, obviously.
GAME ROOM BASEMENT
Cece: "Eric's main thing is Truth Or Dare. Pay no attention to the half-naked people wandering around, that'll make more sense later."
Eric: "Cece, you old so-and-so. Back from the dead!"
Cece: "I hate you, in a sexy way."
Eric: "You brought little girls!"
Cece, verbatim: "These are my ducklings, so play nice."
Eric, amazingly verbatim: "You're mean when you're cute."
The rule is, you have to play to stay. Cece will go first -- after comforting Aria and Ezra about the Admissions guy and the underage drinking; "No one's gonna narc on you, I've seen cops do way worse in this room" -- and then sits down to play a round of Eric's game, which is like Truth Or Dare except there are no Dares, so it's just Truth or More Truth. Alison's Promised Land.
