Ashley: "Take a step forward if ... you'd rather not be here."
Mona: "How about we skip this step and just jump out the window?"
Ashley: "Miss Vanderwaal, you are welcome to try."
Ashley: "Take a step if ... you feel you've ever been mistreated by a student of a faculty member of this school."
Emily: GIANT EMILY STEPS
Ashley: "One step at a time, as they say in my daughter's future."
Ashley: "Take a step if ... you've ever felt the school was an unsafe or unwelcoming environment."
Everybody on this entire show: GIANT EMILY STEPS
Ashley: "Right, because we live in Rosewood PA, the Bad-Touch Capital of the Eastern Seaboard."
Ashley: "Emily, I noticed you once again took two giant steps. You juicin' again?"
Emily, verbatim: "One step is not enough! It's not safe! Or welcoming! For some of us, it gets worse every day!"
Ashley: "In the three-ring binder they sent us, it says the overdramatic lesbian's not supposed to crack until like 11 AM. It's still first period, sweetie."
Emily: "I AM NO LONGER ON THE SWIM TEAM!"
Everybody: "Oh my God, we know."
Tamborelli: "Fields. Come here so I can dress you down in front of everybody, subverting the point this entire exercise in such a grotesque and flagrant way I should probably be fired."
Emily: "But I..."
Staring Mona: Who could ever predict what that girl is thinking.
Tamborelli, and get this shit: "If you're feeling unsafe and unwelcome, maybe it's because your behavior has made your teammates and other students at this school feel the same way. Now, you're not helping your cause by attacking me..."
Emily: "I totally wasn't doing that? This is not about you?"
Tamborelli, scary: "You're no saint, Emily. Maybe it's time you take a look at what got you to this point."
Which, valid. I mean, not the shovel part, but the college fraud and the HGH stuff? Maybe she didn't mean to do about one and a half of those things, true, but you take your lumps. It's not this guy's fault that A arranged things in such a tremendously unhelpful way -- it's kind of A's thing -- and Emily's pointing the finger at this guy because the plot demands it, rather than because it makes sense for her (or anybody, but especially Emily) to do so.
