Main Characters in this Episode
Spencer Hastings: He's desperate. Ali's brother's breathing down his neck.
Aria Montgomery: Ours too. What if Jason told the police Alison's version of what happened after the fire?
Spencer Hastings: If Jason was gonna tell them, he would've told them a year ago. He knows that story's bogus.
Aria Montgomery: Well, then, why do they bring it up?
Spencer Hastings: To try to drive a wedge between us. Well, he's not gonna do that.
Ella Montgomery: Oh, I tried calling you, but your phone must be turned off for the test.
Aria Montgomery: Why are you here?
Ella Montgomery: Well, they called and said they needed proctors. I'm on the sub list.
Aria Montgomery: You are? Since when?
Ella Montgomery: Well, since they cut my hours at the gallery and I'm paying rent to live above it. I filled out an application last Monday.
Aria Montgomery: What, to teach? Why didn't you tell me?
Ella Montgomery: Well, sweetie, I was going to when you came over for dinner, but then you canceled on Monday... and Tuesday, and then on Wednesday.
Aria Montgomery: Yeah, this week's been intense.
Ella Montgomery: I understand. I just, you know, I would like to see you in the flesh. But you don't really plan on ever coming over, do you?
Aria Montgomery: I can't. Look, if I did, it'd be like saying I'm okay with you and dad living apart.
Ella Montgomery: But we are.
Aria Montgomery: I know! Just 'cause you were ready for this doesn't mean that I am. I gotta get back to the library.
