“Sandra to Christie on Matt: So he's been a meanie today has he. The boy's got the subtlety of a brick to the head. I do apologize.”
Svetlana Chmakova, Dramacon, Vol. 3

“My mom says . . . there are bad people who hurt others for fun . . . and there are good people who do it by accident. Like, they make a mistake?

I think you're a good person.”
Svetlana Chmakova, Awkward
