Alison: "Second of all, I am a little nervous, so I'm going to throw you an unlikely bone. Can you keep a secret? It's for real, and it's for keeps."
Mona: "This is how you got those four girls to fall in love with you. Shit like this. Good thing I'm highly susceptible to brainwashing."
Alison: "I'm spying on a spy. Stalking a stalker. It's important work. Now scat!"
Mona: "You owe me a favor, if I do quit bothering you."
Alison: "What do you want?"
Mona: "Teenage popularity."
Alison: "Fine, call this number."
She writes it on the other half of that ripped-up postcard, if that matters. I tend to think this conversation mostly went down the way Mona says, but that when she called Ali they actually hatched some kind of plan. That's what I think -- that Mona was at one point Team Ali. It doesn't make sense, really, but neither does this show so I'm just trying to kinda flow with it.
Mona: "...Anyway, I got her voicemail that night, which made me think she was a bitch, but then she [quote] went all MIA on us, and she never called me."
Spencer: "So who was she spying on?"
Mona: "I somehow didn't think to look. Probably Noel Kahn. That's what I'd be doing."
Spencer: "A wasn't watching Ali in Brookhaven, but vice versa!"
Mona: "What do you mean? Everybody on this show talks so inscrutably."
Spencer: "I just figured out something obvious, which is that Ali was doing the same thing Toby and I did that time."
Jenna spookily follows Aria, who has been summoned outside, to where Ezra obviously is waiting, wearing a mask so the authorities won't notice him smooching the children.
Ezra: "No matter how hard I try... I can't stay away from you."
EN ROUTE TO GREENVIEW
Spencer: "Keep your friends close, Em."
Emily: "That is not how you have a phone conversation! What are you talking about?"
Spencer: "That's what Ali was doing, keeping her enemies even closer."
Emily: "God damn it, Hastings. What are you talking about? Where are you?"
Spencer: "On my way back to the motel. We've still got a couple hours until midnight and I just figured out that A is renting Room #2 as her personal Lair -- that's why Alison got the next one over."
Emily: "I'm just going to let you keep talking until you make some damned sense."
Spencer: "I'm going out there, you guys stay on the A trail at the dance. And don't worry, I'm not alone."
