    • Asides from these, more Amanda quotes are found in the Quips & Quotes tread in the forum.

    • Amanda: I used to have a job delivering packages to these random places out in the desert. One of them was Mercury, NV, which is part of Area 51. I'd have to get security clearance to get in there. I'm not sure what was in the packages or what they were doing out there, but it was kind of sketchy. It felt like being in an episode of The X-Files.

    • Amanda: Guys blow my looks up more than I ever would. I guess I have issues with myself. I don't think I'm as pretty as everybody thinks.

    • Amanda: I was shy in high school. I didn't know how to initiate conversations and people would take that as me being a bitch.

    • Amanda: Girls can turn bitchy having to deal with aggressive men. I can't be left alone for two minutes without some creep saying something.

    • Amanda: Spaghetti Righetti is my nickname to this day. My Reunion co-stars call me Spaghetti Righetti. It's grown on me with time. You can't really fight it.

    • Amanda: So, yes, the short hair was a big hit with the women, but I never went there. Don't get me wrong: Girls are beautiful, but I'm definitely into guys.

    • Amanda: A lot of girls started hitting on me. It was a high school thing, and there were girls who were bisexual. I was in that weird, experimental stage and I totally got hit on by this one girl. I was so nervous. It was so totally weird and awkward.

    • Amanda: I made out with a girl once but I've never gone further than that.

    • Amanda: I've had a lap dance. It was pretty hot. The guys I was with bought it for me. After that, the girl wanted to give me another dance. I guess she preferred dancing for me more than the guys I was with.

    • Amanda: I haven't made love outdoors since I was 16. There just aren't enough hours in the day when I can go on an exotic hike and start having sex under a waterfall.

    • Amanda: The girls are in skirts and bikinis for the most part. I actually got to keep a killer suit from this shoot, the red one. I'm a sucker for red. And I like the Brazilian cut. I hate getting tan lines, so if I'm lying on the beach or at the pool, I want something that has a little less coverage.

    • Amanda: I used to get into fights with boys all the time. The worst was when I was 7 years old: This kid called my dad gay and I got so upset I punched him. Then he punched me in the stomach and it turned into a brawl. But sometimes you have to get down and dirty. It feels good.

    • Amanda: I had one of those "it's time to start living" moments recently, so I went to Amsterdam. It's funny because I partied a lot when I was younger, and I'm only 21, but I'm in a mellow stage of life right now.

    I've only really seen her in The Mentalist but I'm sure I've seen her in something else too (although can't find it in tv.com). I think she would make a great young Laura Croft in a reboot of the appalling Tomb Raider movies, although I do hope they make more The Mentalist and give her a more active role apart from the computer geek surfing the net and checking on hotel reservations etc.. She had some very good lines in the Pilot and the Rigsby/Van Pelt relationship is always amusing.



    She also reminds me a bit of Buffy's sister (Amanda Trachenburg??) but a bit oldermoreless
