Memorable quotes

I almost passed out.


Human, do you see me going to the Owl Shack and bugging you while you... fry up owl?


I'm Emira. And this is Edric. We're Amity's older siblings. We heard how you embarrassed her at the school and at the witch convention last week. No wonder she hates you.


We're her family. It's tough love. She needs to learn to lighten up.


I’ve been trying to figure out what your deal is. Are you a poser, a nerd? I know. You’re a bully, Luz


Maybe you aren’t a bully. I haven’t exactly been the friendliest witch either. I’ll think of that.
