Pretty Little Liars Quotes

According to the Pretty Little Liars theme song, “Two can keep a secret if one of them is dead.” Well, luckily for us, our obsession with the show is no secret. Everyone’s safe! At least everyone who — even now, four years after the series’ finale — watches the drama unfold from the comfort of home. As we all know, no one who lived in Rosewood was ever really safe… especially not Alison DiLaurentis (Sasha Pieterse), Aria Montgomery (Lucy Hale), Spencer Hastings (Troian Bellisario), Hanna Marin (Ashley Benson), and Emily Fields (Shay Mitchell). All of the Pretty Little Liars quotes that came from the show’s seven-year run instantly jog the memory where A’s reign of terror is concerned.

Of course, die-hard fans know that PLL quotes don’t just come from the TV series. Before the teen drama mystery thriller was developed by I. Marlene King, it was a novel series of the same name by Sara Shepard. And since Rosewood is a fictional town created by the author, we sadly cannot add it to the list of TV and film locations you can travel to. Granted, that may be for the best. You know how Disneyland has been dubbed the happiest place on earth? Rosewood was, well, basically the opposite. And the lives of Aria and her friends were nothing like the sunny world of Disney characters.

But let’s be real, we still need our PLL fix from time to time. So, in lieu of a PLL-themed road trip adventure with your real-life besties, take a stroll down Rosewood memory lane with this collection of the best Pretty Little Liars quotes.
