  • Quotes

    • Kelly: And I talked to your dad. He has a room ready, and he's waiting for you.
      Silver: You're kidding, right? I am not going to go stay with Mel and his latest child-bride. I think that girl is actually in my homeroom.

    • Silver: Do you know I actually almost started believing that guy?
      Dixon: Hey! That guy is a pig, but he was right about one thing. You are definitely the most beautiful girl in the room tonight.

    • Ethan: Are you gonna be staring at your Sidekick all night?
      Naomi: Are you gonna be staring at the fake boobs all night?

    • Ryan: This is not like any high school week night I remember.
      Brenda: Well, you didn't go to West Beverly. Trade in Rhianna and Louis Vuitton's for Madonna and black leggings, and it's exactly the same as when I was a teenager.

    • Brenda: Adrianna, you are a fantastic actress. And if you choose to, you're gonna have great success, but there's plenty of time for that. Maybe you should take a little bit of pressure off of yourself right now.
      Adrianna: Do you really think I want to end up like you, acting in some tragic theater company, directing high school musicals in my spare time? No, thanks.

    • Annie: (about Adrianna) God, what is her problem?
      Harry: She is having a rough time.
      Annie: Yeah, but so is everybody else. It's called "high school".

    • Naomi: (about her dad) The minute he got in the same room with my mom they ended up in bed together. What does that tell you?
      Ethan: That they're still horny.
      Naomi: No, that they still have feelings for each other.

    • Navid: Dude, you've been in Beverly Hills, like, ten minutes and you already have a girlfriend. You know what that makes me?
      Dixon: A loser?
      Navid: No, a third wheel.

    • Silver: (to Dixon and Navid) Listen, I'm gonna let you guys just hug this out while I go try to blog Navid a whole new wheel.

    • Adrianna: You stole my part in the play.
      Annie: Adrianna, I was your understudy. I had to go on. You, on the other hand, did not need to sleep with Ty.
      Adrianna: Then why are you helping me?
      Annie: Because, unlike you, I'm actually a nice person.

    • Kelly: Ryan. Look, you are a really great guy. I mean it. Any girl would be lucky to have a chance with someone like you, but with things the way they are with Dylan, I just don't know if or when I'm gonna be able to go there with somebody else. And you deserve more than that.
      Ryan: Are you asking me to wait? 'Cause I got nothing but time and the distinct feeling that women like you don't come around very often.
      Kelly: I don't want you to wait. I'm sorry.
      Ryan: Me, too. Hey, Kelly, do you have your phone with you today?
      Kelly: Yeah. Why?
      Ryan: I was just wondering, if Dylan wanted to talk to you, why was he calling Brenda?

    • Silver: (to Dixon) Well, if you ever want to model for me, we can just go somewhere.
      Navid: Okay, discomfort level rising.

    • Ryan: Well, it's pretty clear Kelly's not really in a head space to date, whatever that means.
      Brenda: You know, I probably shouldn't say anything, but… I love Kelly. As great as she is, you just dodged an epic bullet.

    • Ryan: Annie, where's Adrianna?
      Annie: Oh, you know, she's just off cooking up her next little psychotic plan to ruin my life.

    • Tom: Now, I thought the modeling world was not for you.
      Silver: Morbid fascination. I was dragged here kicking and screaming.

    • Tom: How about I get my driver to take us back to my house in the hills, and we can plot the world domination of Silver in my Jacuzzi?
      Silver: You're kidding, right? Do you know how old I am?
      Tom: Oh, age to me is more of a state of mind.
      Silver: Yeah, well, in the state of California, it's 15 to 20 hard time.

    • Naomi: Now my parents will never get back together.
      Ethan: Maybe that's not such a bad thing.
      Naomi: How can you say that?
      Ethan: Some people just aren't meant to be together.

    • Naomi: Is that why you couldn't say you loved me earlier?
      Ethan: It's complicated.
      Naomi: It shouldn't be complicated, E. I'm just so tired. I'm tired of pretending that my parents are gonna be together forever. I'm tired of pretending that we're ultimately gonna stay together. I think it's over, E. For good, this time.
      Ethan: I think you're right.

    • Kelly: Hey, kiddo. How was the party?
      Silver: Oh, you know. Dreams built up and shattered. Typical night in Hollywood.

    • Silver: That means you have to come back, right? With or without Dylan.
      Kelly: Don't worry about it, okay? Silver, you and I are family. You'll never be alone.

    • Kelly: Brenda, if there is something going on with you and Dylan, now is the time to tell me.
      Brenda: He got my e-mail address from Brandon, and he sent me a message from Africa a few months ago. He wanted to know if you were in a relationship.
      Kelly: I talked to him about that same time. Why didn't he just ask me?
      Brenda: I don't know, but I told him that he was already messing up, and that if he was serious about reconnecting with you, he needed to come back to the States and do it the right way. I mean, he's hurt you so many times, I was just trying to protect you.
      Kelly: Or maybe you were trying to keep the door open for yourself.
      Brenda: Wow! I thought that we had moved past all this already.

    • Brenda: Ryan wanted to keep an eye on Adrianna so I had my agent get us some tickets to that fashion show.
      Kelly: Wow, you and Ryan. I guess old habits die hard with you, don't they?
      Brenda: What is that supposed to mean?
      Kelly: When was the last time you saw Dylan?

    • Tom Marino: Most girls would give up their cell phones for a professional modeling contract.
      Silver: Well, I guess I'm not like most girls.
