The pilot episode of The Beautiful Life was surprisingly fast-paced, with dark story lines, edgy filming and some hot new characters that were even a little bit likable.
There was also some dialogue that we think a 12-year-old probably wrote, tons of cliches and the unintentional comedy that is Mischa Barton. So it was hit or miss.

There were plenty of cheesy lines last night, without question, but that doesn't mean they were all bad. Among our favorite The Beautiful Life quotes from the evening were...

Raina: [to Chris] Just relax. Listen to the music. Imagine you're in the shower. Shut your eyes. You're in the shower. The water's warm. Can you feel it? Breathe in the heat. The stem. Let the warm water fall ... all around you. Open your eyes. | permalink
Marisa: [to Raina] Get used to it - every model in New York hating you. You're having your moment. | permalink
Sonja: Don't you dare feel sorry for me. This'll be you in a few years. Just you wait. | permalink

Raina: Crazy right? You okay?
