S01 E01 - Pilot

  • Eric is starting in on the Atrians:
    Drake: We're not citizens.
    Eric: Oh, that's right. You're Martians.
    Roman: Well, technically, Martians are from Mars. We're from a far superior planet.
  • Eric starts in on Roman again, at lunch break:
    Eric: You like talking to our girls there, Tattie? You think they're pretty?
    Roman: I was interested in joining her club, but she wouldn't have me.
    Eric: Oh, well.
    Roman: No, don't feel bad. (chuckles) It's just as well. I don't have an artistic bone in my body.
    Eric: Do you have any bones in your body?

  • Taylor's normally a Lovable Alpha Bitch, but her Alpha Bitch quality shines through as she mocks Grayson a little bit:
    Grayson: (to Emery) You're coming tonight, right?
    Taylor: (In an annoyed tone) Yes, Grayson, you're gonna see her tonight. (beat) God. Attempt to be cool. Even social newbies like Emery still like a little cool with their drool.

S01 E02 - These Violent Delights Have Violent Ends

  • In the unsettled wake of Nox's death, the principal has announced the possible suspension of Homecoming:
    Taylor: I am all for equality, but when they start messing with tradition, that's when I go turbo bitch.
  • At the Homecoming Carnival:
    Taylor: (scanning Drake's ticket) You here to campaign for homecoming king?
  • Later on, Sophie runs into Lukas and he asks her about bumper cars. The questioningly skeptical look on her face in response is very amusing.

  • Taylor and Grayson observe Roman and Emery holding hands as they walk through the Carnival:
    Taylor: Are you still seriously trying to bang that drum?
    Grayson: She likes dark and mysterious. (awkwardly) I can be dark and mysterious.
    (Taylor's not buying it)

S01 E04 - And Left No Friendly Drop

  • Grayson has just met Emery at the pasta restaurant:
    Emery: You know, I read that the whole carb-loading thing is actually just a myth.
    Grayson: (Chuckles) You think it's just an excuse for me to gorge myself with fettuccine Alfredo?
    Emery: Mmm, maybe.
    Grayson: Well, have you heard the myth about the girl who took a guy up on a date even after he did something stupid?
  • Teri has found out a Collier Prep player deliberately gave Sophia a drink with caffeine in it:
    (Teri calmly removes her earrings)
    Teri: What you're saying makes me feel unwelcome and fills me with rage. (beat) There. I used my words.
    (She promptly grabs the other girl and headbutts her)

  • In the aftermath of the brawl and impromptu friendly Marshall swim race:
    Grayson: (indicating his bandaged hand) I, uh, tried to punch a Collier swimmer and missed, but this vending machine is real unhappy about getting in my face.
  • Eric joining in the brawl, despite his hatred for the Atrians. After watching for a while, he just shrugs and punches the nearest Collier player.

S01 E05 - Dreamers Often Lie

  • Emery and Grayson's Indy Ploy to bluff the Red Hawk biker who beat up the Edendale store owner.

S01 E10 - What Storm Is This That Blows So?

  • Taylor's absolute burn:
    Student: Humans, Atrians... I guess you get down with just about anyone or anything, won't you?
    Taylor: (swooping in between Emery and the student) And yet you can't seem to get with a girl of any species, can you?

S01 E13 - Passion Lends Them Power

  • Roman grousing about Grayson:
    Roman: The eternal iwap blocker.
    (The Sondiv word lets him call Grayson a cock-blocker without actually using the English word).

How well does it match the trope?
