Brent: Luke wouldn’t have wanted this.
Steve: Well, it’s not my first choice either. But Megan is the one on that tape, not Isabella. So…
Brent: How could you do this to her? How could you do this to Debbie? It’s not fair!
Steve: Fair? Fair?! Grow up. That’s not how life works.

Megan: No, you did all this because you’re addicted to drama. And I should’ve just talked to him! I never should’ve never brought you into this. He would still be.
Isabella: Yeah, treating you like garbage.
Megan: He was right. You’re only happy when I’m miserable. Well congratulations, you got what you wanted. I wish I never met you.

Because I’m not going to let you take the fall for this. Luke really loved you.


Isabella: I love making new friends.
Michelle: I’m Michelle, by the way.
Isabella: I’m Lisa.

Yeah, being on the water all day? That’s a hobby. That’s not real life.


Luke: When I got to the emergency contact stuff, I realized technically it’s my dad. But really, you’re my case of everything.
Megan: Luke! That’s…
Luke: You believe in me more than anyone else. At least since my mom. I don’t know what I would do with you.
[They kiss]

Don’t say a word about tonight. To anyone.


Steve: I’m sick of trying to fix you.
Luke: That’s bullshit! You don’t care about me. You’ve never cared about me.
Steve: Excuse me?
Luke: Brent is your only real son. I’m just this constant disappointment to you.
Steve: Okay, we’re gonna have a little pity party now?
Luke: You’ve just resented me ever since the night of the accident, and you know it! You wish I were the one who died that night.

Isabella: Luke, if Brent didn’t make the sex tape between you and Megan, who did?
Luke: I did.

Tim: Yo, Isabella? You wanna get wet?
Isabella: Ummm, only if it’s for charity. Which, I guess is you? But still, nah, I’m good.
Parker: Wow, Tim and his limp hose.

Isabella: What are you doing?
Megan: Looking for you!
Luke: We wanted to figure out what to do tonight.
Isabella: Oh. Cool.
Megan: What are you up for? You always have the best ideas.
Isabella: Absolutely anything.

Isabella: Well, yeah. I mean I’m just saying if I were hella paranoid, I’d put them somewhere completely unlikely. Like with my taxes or in a totally different database, right?
Megan: That’s actually really smart.
Isabella: You could be less surprised. Reading people is like my superpower.
Megan: You do have a talent for it.

Cruel Summer Quotes

Jeanette: Mallory, I don’t know what’s going on, but I’m here. I’ve been here. You can say that I pulled away from you, but you pulled away from me too. So, I don’t understand where all this rage is coming from, but if you want to talk, you know where to find me.
[Jeanette gives Mallory a hug]
Mallory: God, you sound just like her.

Jeanette Turner, I hope you rot in hell.
