  • All About Tough Love


    All About Tough Love was a great episode of Privileged and I really enjoyed watching this episode because there was a lot of drama, intrigue and character development. Megan visits Lily in prison and lets her know that the family isn't bailing her out, and this leads to some surprising decisions by Megan and Lily's mother. I thought it was great to see a softer side of Sage as she has begun dating Luis. I liked their scenes together as they try to figure out how to interact with each other. Marco is heart sick for Keith watching every one else around in love. Rose had her romantic moments as well. I look forward to watching the next episode!!!!!

  • Getting better.

    Privileged started out as a fresh dramedy that brought a little bit of life into The CW's generally dull lineup of shows geared exclusively to girls 14-20. But since then the show has transitioned to a purely overdramatic program. The once sweet humor of Rose and Sage, and the quirkiness of Megan has vanished like a trick by a magician. Instead Megan is a plain college graduate and Rose is like a poor man's Blair Waldorf.

    I understand the show needs to change to try and attract new viewers, but it's just not what it once was. They're trying too hard to be serious when its light-hearted nature is what made me a fan in the first place.moreless
  • Better than the normal episode.

    This was a good episode, there are a lot of drama. Megan's sister was in jail and they talked about leaving her there. I am glad that they were going to do that she really needs to wake up. I can't believe that she was trying to find a lawyer for her husband but not for herself stupid. I like will a lot but am very mad that he got involved in the situation with Megan's jailed sister, but then again I am happy because it got the **** of a mom off the show I really hated her. The charater and the acting. Sage and her new boy were totally cute, and I like how she is handing the whole money think, I think he is having more of a problem with it than she is. Cute.moreless
  • Everyone starts to understand that although they are all different they can all make things work.

    This was a really nice episode of Privileged. Sage and Rose both discovered that although they are very different from their current squeezes they can work things out. Sage in particular, opened up and told some things about her childhood that had not been great. Megan had a tough time with her sister, Lily, being arrested for something her husband did. It was particularly sad when it turned out that her mother Shelby had conned them all and got a huge amount of money off Will, supposedly to bail Lily out. Instead she just vanished with it. Megan and Will's relationship teetered a bit because of it all. Overall, a good, well-crafted episode.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (14)

    • Sage: The point is, I totally get the knife dream. Okay? So we're not so different. End of fight.
      Luis: Love that story, but we're pretty different.
      Sage: So what? Big whoop, everybody's different. Megan and Will, Rose and Zach. Your parents were from two different cultures and they turned out fine. The point is, you promised me a date and I just showed you my kittens in a basket. So I expect something in return. And if you make a dirty kittens joke, I will beat you with this.

    • Luis: Someone laminated your puzzle?
      Sage: That's not the sad part.
      Luis: Really? I think it might be.
      Sage: Laurel had her assistant do it. Then she framed it and gave it to me as a gift. She didn't ask. She just did it. She thought it was nice, but I never got to finish my first 5000-piece puzzle. Which totally sucked.

    • (Sage carries a large framed picture into the room.)
      Luis: Another present?
      Sage: Please shut up. This is embarrassing enough.

    • Rose: (to Zach) Wait. So you did write me a poem. (Zach hands her a piece of paper.) See. Now this is awesome. I mean there's rhyming and short words. This is so much better than the other one (referring to the John Donne poem Zach tried to pass off as his own).

    • Rose: (to Zach) Why would you lie to me so early in our relationship? I mean, that is something you do in, like, week 2 when things get really hard.

    • Marco: (to Rose) Men. So typical, they just tell you what they think you want to hear. Bunch of liars. I remember when Keith and I first started dating. He told me he was a black belt in Kung Fu. So, I playfully tried a, you know, Charlies Angels karate kick on him. Turns out he wasn't a black belt but a big fan of Jackie Chan movies. Uh. I took him out with one kick and I was wearing sandals. Poor guy, he had a big old bruise for weeks.

    • Megan: (talking about Luis) For future reference, it's probably not the best idea to tell someone that you like that they have stupid goals.
      Sage: I only said that because he made me feel bad. Obviously I don't think his goals are stupid.
      Megan: I know that, and the fact that you're different doesn't have to be that big of a deal. I mean, look at me and Will.
      Sage: Good point. I mean Will's even richer than us and you look even poorer than Luis. His family is awesome and yours is-
      Megan: A band of gypsies? Yes, I know.

    • Megan: If you'll excuse me, i have to go to jail, now.
      Marco: Jail?
      Megan: You heard me.
      Marco: (to himself) Damn! She's always got to one-up me with the drama.

    • Rose: Sage totally met someone. Isn't that great?
      Jordana: Shut up! Sage Baker has a beau? Who is he? Vitals, now.
      Zach: His name is Luis. Yeah, he's their new sous chef.
      Jordana: No, stop it. Sage's new boyfriend is a domestic?

    • Sage: Kudos on the outfit, Zachariah. No-one can rock a sweater vest like you can.

    • Sage: Hey Jordana, necklace?
      Jordana: Yeah?
      Sage: I love it.
      Jordana: Uh huh. And?
      Sage: And that dress makes your boobs look awesome. You should wear it more often.

    • Marco: (to Luis and Sage) You, easy-to-replace sous chef, hands off the Queen Bee and get back to work. And you, trouble-with-a-capital-S, stop distracting him. Young love. Makes me sick.

    • (Rose and Rami watch Sage and Luis kiss.)
      Rose: They look so cute.
      Rami: It's about damn time.
      (Marco walks in.)
      Marco: What the heck is every- ... Oh, look, happy people.

    • Luis: (kissing Sage) Wait, wait. Let's slow this train down.
      Sage: Slow it down? The train just left the station.
