Jeremy: Hey. What are you doing here?
Alex: Hi, Jeremy. I wanna ask you something.

Alex: Wait, don't talk yet. Here's the thing. We've texting for a while, and it's been nice, but I feel like it's
leading to something else, and I don't know if you do or not, but I guess what I'm trying to say is, I'm just

Jay: I'm sorry. If you think your grandmother's here with us, I respect that. Now, come here. Oh, grandma!
Where'd you come from? We're gonna have to get you a little bell. [laughs]

and kiss him in front of a million people?!
Claire: Alex, did you do that?
Alex: You got a text?
Haley: Oh, yeah. Everybody knows. Do you know how embarrassing this is for me?!

Alex: What?! You read my texts?!
Haley: You read her texts?! That's why you made me talk to her?!
