  • Quotes

    • Paige: For years, you have lied and cheated and conned people, and you've gotten away with it. But I am not gonna let you get away with this.
      Abby: You're good. You really are. If I were rating you on the "Abby Scale" - Abby being a 10 - you'd be a 6, which is very good considering your youth and ignorance.
      Paige: Well, I don't judge things on the "Abby Scale" and neither does Greg.
      Abby: Don't count on it.
