  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Nick Toscanni: Fallon, call me when you grow up... if you ever do.

    • Alexis: I think you're sick. You're mentally ill. What you really need is a few more of those psychiatric sessions with Dr. Toscanni. That is what they were, isn't it?
      Krystle: You're the one who needs a psychiatrist, Alexis. Nobody could be as rotten and evil as you without being sick.

  • Notes
