Is it always necessary to have vampires or a crime scene with pretty girls inside to make an American TV series creepy and scary? No. The Pretty Little Liars is a whole different series. It starts out with a song by the The Pierces “Secret,” “Got a secret, can you keep swear this one you’ll save. Better lock it in your pocket taking this one to the grave. If I show you then I’ll know you won’t tell what I said ‘cause two can keep a secret if one of them is dead.” Yes, we are talking about four teenage girls, Aria, Spencer, Hannah and Emily, keeping a secret ever since their best friend Allison died mysteriously. They all get threatening texts from A (maybe an abbreviation of Allison) and try to figure out the truth of Allison’s death. While you find out who really killed Allison and who A is, you can enjoy the witty expressions these girls use. However, be aware: do not trust pretty girls with ugly secrets!
Aria : Hey, it was just an early admission’s deadline. You can still get in. It’s gonna be okay.
Spencer : UPenn has been my dream school since I was eight, Aria, and yesterday I found my dream crumbled up in the bottom of the bag underneath my AP French and my Physics homework, which by the way I got a “B” on. A “B!” So everything’s not gonna be okay. I’m dropping my Velma act. From now on, I’m Daphne ‘cause I got a boyfriend to get back. I got a college to get into.
Aria : I think you’re confusing which Scooby-Doo character would have gotten into an Ivy League. And both Daphne and Velma solve the crime.
Pam : So you were already here when your parents got married?
Maya : I was the flower girl. Oh, I guess they wanted to make sure it was real before they tied the knot.
Pam : Two children, wasn’t that real enough?
Emily : Tell the story of how your dad asked out your mom.
Maya : So my dad’s this raging, crazy romantic. He proposed to my mom with a Sharpie. Oh! He didn’t have a ring so he drew it on her finger with a felt pen.
Pam : That’s a very clever placeholder.
Maya : No, that’s the only one that she ever had. Once the ink wore off she had it replaced with a tattoo.
Wayne : See, now, why didn’t I think of that?
Emily : How could it be an ulcer? I thought I pulled a muscle.
Wayne : It’s caused by stress, hon. Alright. Let’s face it. Your leaving home, your ma moving, well… you had your fair share.
Emily : What am I supposed to do now? When can I swim again?
Wayne : That’s off the table for the moment. Listen, listen to me Emi, if you’re stressed about getting Danvy’s scholarship, I want you to let it go. Okay? They are not going to withdraw the offer because you had a setback.
Emily : You don’t know dad.
Wayne : I know that you need to rest.
