Supporting Cast



Julia: It’s return of the exes…


(Jeremy and Liam are seen walking into Caylee’s restaurant)

Caylee: What are you guys doing here?

Liam: I’m done with training and back for good.

Jeremy: Caylee, Liam cannot find out what happened between us.

Jamie: Caylee, you need me. You know you do.

(Caylee looks stressed in the center of her restaurant)


Danielle: It’s official…Peyton is my adopted sister.

Angel: You don’t seem as thrilled as I thought you would be.

Peyton: I’m not okay, Danielle. I don’t know how much longer I can pretend to be.

Danielle: She’s really messed up…I have to help her.

(Peyton is seen looking horrified)


Mary-Beth: I thought going back to school was going to be good for me…

Kat: It is good!

  • Maddie: “That’s just the way the system works. We’re not people, just bodies taking up space. But there are too many bodies and too little room, so the bodies they can ditch, they jump at the chance to.”
  • Peyton: “Last time I checked, you never killed someone, so I really don’t want to see any of this judgmental bullshit from you, okay?”
  • Liam: “In high school, everything seems so much more inflated, like every little thing is the biggest deal. But getting into the real world, you realize that petty shit never even mattered.”
  • Mary-Beth: “No one takes an older woman seriously. Everyone just expects her to be in the kitchen or staying at home with the kids. But an older man? He’s a noble, hard-working guy. No one cares how big your beer gut gets or how far back your hairline recedes.”
  • Peyton: “If I never fought that uphill battle when I came here, I wouldn’t have any of the things that mean the world to me now.”
