  • Pretty good season opener!! Plot moving a little to fast, though.

    This show has a TON of potential!! As far as a show goes, I loved it, and it kept me on the edge of my seat. There were a few plot twists I hated... Lauren (I think her name is Lauren?) changing Emily's height and then Emily fainting... it was so cool when Emily got back up on the top three. Highlight: Emily saying that the other girl was really with her, and Lauren (?) getting totally burned. Lowlight: Lauren's dad talking to Mark, which scared me the whole time. Peyson was heartbreaking at the end. All in all, 9/10!moreless

    • Carter: "T-5" means "my truck in five minutes", remember?
      Kaylie: Sorry, someone beat me to the chalk box.
      Carter: I was freezing out there!
      Kaylie: Yeah, well, I guess we have to find a better means of communication than a communal bucket of chalk!

    • Alex Cruz: Kaylie, you've got to get more height on that Schuschunova! Keep those legs straight!
      Payson: I thought Bela Karolyi was a slave-driver.
      Kaylie: I swear, if my father doesn't find another coach soon, I'm joining the carnival.

    • Sasha: You think I left England to compete for Romania because I wanted money? Who do I look like? David Beckham?
      Steve Tanner: Yeah, actually, you kinda do.

    • Alex Cruz: You have to throw your head back on that ring leap! And you have to smile. I need to see teeth--
      (Kaylie jumps off the beam mid-routine)
      Kaylie: I can't concentrate with you yelling at me! And, this is not a toothpaste commercial!

    • Payson: If someone doesn't hold me back, I'm gonna put my heel upside her bleached blond head!
      Kaylie: I'm not holding you back.

    • Payson: You can't leave! We need you!
      Sasha: You think you can get your parents to stop behaving like children?

    • Sasha: We have 49 days left until Nationals, and you will spend every waking minute of it in this gym. Together. Now, go home and say goodbye to your life as you know it, because if you're not willing to sacrifice your sweat, blood, and tears to achieve excellence, you shouldn't come back.

    • Payson: What's fun about a party?
      Kaylie: It's a high school party! Have you ever been to a high school party?
      Payson: No.

    • Kaylie: We are gonna party like rock stars! Get it? The Rock...(gestures at the girls) stars?
      Payson: Yeah, we get it.

    • Kim Keeler: All right. Well, have fun!
      Payson: I doubt it.

    • Leo: Guys are only after four things at a kegger: Brew, booty, followed by more booty, and more brew.
      Kaylie: Leo, I'm a world-class athlete. I think I can handle a few drunken boys.

    • Kaylie: Too much information?
      Leo: No, just because I'm your brother doesn't mean we can't talk about these things. Still, if he lays a hand on you before you're ready, I'll rip his heart out.
      Kaylie: Wow.

    • Damon: This is where we leave Razor to work his awkward, but ever-so-charming magic on Emily.

    • Lauren: So, let me get this straight: for the past few years, every special gift from my father actually came from you?
      Summer: Well, he paid for them...

    • Leo: So, how many beers did [Kaylie] have?
      Emily: I don't know. How ever many it takes for a 90 lb. girl to get drunk?

    • Carter: Screw it! Why are we even talking about [Kaylie]?!
      Lauren: Why are we even talking at all?
      (they start kissing)
