"90210: Lucky Strike (#1.3)" (2008)
Erin Silver: [to Kelly about Ryan] I think he has a crush on you.
Kelly Taylor: Oh, God, no. No, no, no, no. We're colleagues. I would never go out...
Erin Silver: Good. This school's hard enough as it is without my sister banging the teacher.

Annie Wilson: [to Silver] Hey, where were you today? I was looking for you at school.
Erin Silver: Fell asleep behind the biology lab.

Dixon Wilson: [to Silver] So, Ms. Silver, do you know how to bowl or you know, are you too cool for that kind of thing?
Erin Silver: I'm gonna kick your ass.

Dixon Wilson: Silver? What's going on?
Erin Silver: I've been staying at the women's shelter for a few weeks now. I did some community service there this past summer and there's this woman who... she lets me stay there sometimes. Sort of knows my situation. My mom, she drinks. When she's like this, she's a completely different person. It's like, she screams, she throws things, she blames me. Sometimes she gets so out of control. I don't know... sometimes it scares me.

Erin Silver: Dixon, I didn't tell you so you would tell your dad. I'm already enough of a freak at school. I don't want all the other kids to know my mom's a drunk, too.

Jackie Taylor: Your sister is just leaving, Erin.
Kelly Taylor: Yes, I am, and I am taking her with me.
Jackie Taylor: You have a 4-year-old with nobody to help you unless by some miracle he has decided to come back and act like a dad, and now you want to add a teenager on top of it. Let me tell you, she is no walk in the park.
Kelly Taylor: Well, she's coming to live with me.
[to Silver]
Kelly Taylor: Let's go.
Jackie Taylor: You lied to me and now you're gonna leave me?
Erin Silver: Mom! Stop it, both of you! Mom, I can't take this anymore. I can't just watch you...
Jackie Taylor: [to Silver] Oh, get out! I am tired of both of you.
[Silver runs away]
Kelly Taylor: Good job, Mom.


"90210: Model Behavior (#1.6)" (2008)
Erin Silver: Do you know I actually almost started believing that guy?
Dixon Wilson: Hey, that guy is a pig, but he was right about one thing. You are definitely the most beautiful girl in the room tonight.

Kelly Taylor: [to Silver] And I talked to your dad. He has a room ready and he's waiting for you.
Erin Silver: You're kidding, right? I am not going to go stay with Mel and his latest child bride. I think that girl is actually in my homeroom.

Erin Silver: [to Dixon and Navid] Listen, I'm gonna let you guys just hug this out while I go try to blog Navid a whole new wheel.

Kelly Taylor: [to Silver] Hey, kiddo. How was the party?
Erin Silver: Oh, you know. Dreams built up and shattered. Typical night in Hollywood.

Tom Marino: [to Silver] How about I get my driver to take us back to my house in the Hills and we can plot the world domination of Silver in my Jacuzzi?
Erin Silver: You're kidding, right? Do you know how old I am?
Tom Marino: Oh, age to me is more of a state of mind.
Erin Silver: Yeah, well, in the state of California, it's 15 to 20 hard time.

Tom Marino: [to Silver] Now I thought the modeling world was not for you.
Erin Silver: Morbid fascination. I was dragged here kicking and screaming.


"90210: The Bubble (#1.4)" (2008)
Naomi Clark: [to Silver] Please don't blog about my dad's affair.
Erin Silver: You thought my family problems were gossip. Why shouldn't I treat yours the same way?

Erin Silver: [to Dixon] You hit that guy's car, almost got him in trouble, and then he asks you to a game?
Dixon Wilson: It's nothing. I've seen guys fist-fight and then five minutes later, they're hanging out.
Erin Silver: That's crazy.
Dixon Wilson: Yeah, you know, guys aren't girls. We don't hold grudges. Life is way too short.

Erin Silver: [to Dixon] Those dimples are not gonna get you into Harvard.

Annie Wilson: [to Silver] And I told my mom who turned it into an after-school special sex talk.
Erin Silver: What's an after-school special?
Annie Wilson: Google it.

Brenda Walsh: Silver, what are you doing?
Erin Silver: Nothing, paying attention. Sorry. Checking my blog. Big in Bolivia. Who knew?

Brenda Walsh: All right, Silver, you're the stage manager. What are you gonna do?
Erin Silver: [screams loudly] Has anybody seen Adrianna?

Erin Silver: [to Dixon] You know, you actually did a pretty good job tonight, Dixon.
Dixon Wilson: Well, thank you, thank you. Back at you.
Erin Silver: Whatever.
Dixon Wilson: Is there anything in this whole world that you actually do care about?
Erin Silver: I cared that your sister got through her performance without knocking over any set pieces.
Erin Silver: Okay.
Erin Silver: Or sounding like an amnesiac and that I didn't get blamed for ruining the show.


"90210: We're Not in Kansas Anymore (#1.1)" (2008)
Erin Silver: [to Annie] I'm Silver.
Annie Wilson: Silver?
Erin Silver: Well, you can call me Erin, but I'm not gonna respond. So look, I wasn't plannig on making you feel welcome here, but then I saw the sticker and I thought, "Hey, maybe the principal's daughter isn't such a big loser after all."

Annie Wilson: [to Silver] If I hurt your feelings by sitting with someone you don't like, then I'm sorry.
Erin Silver: It's not that I don't like her. I hate her. Naomi is the Antichrist.
Annie Wilson: Well, the Antichrist didn't trash me in front of half a million people. You did.

Kelly Taylor: Silver, how many times have we had a talk about this blog of yours? All it does is cause problems.
Erin Silver: Yeah, well, that's what blogs are supposed to do. Cause problems. You know, you can't make me stop. It's not like it's a school activity or...
Kelly Taylor: Okay, I'm not talking to you as the guidance counselor right now. I am talking to you as your sister.
Erin Silver: Okay, then as my sister, you know what Naomi did and why I hate her.
Kelly Taylor: Yes, but this didn't hurt Naomi. It hurt Annie. Come on, you've got to let go of that anger. It's not doing you any good. You don't want to end up like Mom.


"90210: Life's a Drag (#1.17)" (2009)
Erin Silver: This project has made me realize that I wanna be a filmmaker. I'm gonna make movies.
Ryan Matthews: Wow. That's cool. You know, I gotta say, I like movies better than blogs.
Erin Silver: It totally makes sense. I've... I've always been a visual person. It's just I'm crap at painting and drawing. So film is this perfect medium for me. You know, I don't... I don't have to create the image, I just have to capture it and then connect them.
Ryan Matthews: Well, just thank me at the Oscars.
Erin Silver: You got it. So look, I know everybody gets ten minutes for their presentation, but I can't cut it down to that. I mean, maybe if I make some really big trims, I can get it down to forty-five minutes. What do you think?
Ryan Matthews: Are you out of your mind? Aim for ten, all right? We have other students in the class.
Erin Silver: You just lost your Oscar shout-out.
Ryan Matthews: Well, I'll survive.

Ryan Matthews: Hey, Kelly. It's Ryan. Listen, I need you to call me back. Uh... Silver made a film and, uh... yeah, I don't really wanna get into it on your machine. So just call me back. Okay.
[Ryan hangs his phone up and enters his apartment to find a smashed window and Silver waiting inside]
Ryan Matthews: Silver.
Erin Silver: You didn't think I'd put it together, did you?
Ryan Matthews: What? What are you doing...
Erin Silver: [growing more and more agitated] No! Just stop talking. Stop. It was a nice try, Matthews. You think that I'm dumb? Well, I'm not dumb. It took me a little while, but I figured out what you were up to. You said to me that you liked movies better than blogs. You think you could possibly be referring to the blog that I posted about you? Huh? I wonder. You never got over it, did you? You pretended to. You pretended to forgive me. You even invited me back into your classroom. All so that you could encourage me to make this movie. This was all a setup.
Ryan Matthews: Silver?
Erin Silver: No, stop! Drop the puppy-dog face. I'm over it. I know that you don't want me to succeed. All you wanted was revenge.
Ryan Matthews: [trying to calm Silver down] Listen to me. You know that's not true.
Erin Silver: You managed to turn Dixon against me. You managed to ruin my relationship, the one thing that I care the most about in this entire world!
Ryan Matthews: Wait, wait. Dixon?
Erin Silver: Stay away from me!
Ryan Matthews: Okay.
Erin Silver: Do you wanna know how I figured it out? Last night in the media lab, you said to me "Are you out of your mind?". And then tonight, Dixon just now said to me "Are you out of your mind?". That is not a coincidence! You got to Dixon! You told him lies about me! All so that you could teach me a lesson! What kind of teacher are you?
Ryan Matthews: Silver, listen...
[Silver throws a wine bottle against the wall]
Ryan Matthews: Okay! What do you want from me?
Erin Silver: I want you to fix all of this!


"90210: By Accident (#1.14)" (2009)
[Ryan has given his class assigned seats]
Erin Silver: Mr. Matthews, I think the mountain air pickled your brain, because you forgot me. Straight from "Sabbir" to "Sondheimer".
Ryan Matthews: Miss Silver, I am transferring you out of this class.
Erin Silver: Excuse me?
Ryan Matthews: I've already filled out the forms, I've discussed it with Principal Wilson. You will be in Mr. Kaplan's English class.
Erin Silver: He's the worst teacher here. The dude calls Tom Clancy "the Bard".
Ryan Matthews: Good luck to you.
Erin Silver: Mr. Matthews, what is this about?
Ryan Matthews: I don't think I can be objective with you as a student, given our... history.
Erin Silver: [confused] Our history?
Ryan Matthews: Yeah. As in you calling me a child-molesting pervert on your blog and almost costing me my job.
Erin Silver: Oh, right. Um... my bad?
Ryan Matthews: I think it's best if I'm not your teacher, for both of us.
[the bell rings, and the students begin chatting]
Ryan Matthews: Quiet, please.
Erin Silver: Look, Mr. Matthews, I was actually looking forward to this class. To your class. It might sound corny, but... you're not like the other teachers.
Ryan Matthews: Maybe that was my problem.

Erin Silver: [venting about being transferred out of Mr. Matthews' class] "Miss Silver"? Who calls me "Miss Silver"? I mean, it's unbelievable, right?
Dixon Wilson: Well, it sounds to me...
Erin Silver: I mean, anyone else, anyone else, kicks me out of their class, and I'm proud of it. But Mr. Matthews is... he's like the one teacher in this whole school who isn't some brain-dead zombie jerk. How could he do this to me?


"90210: The Jet Set (#1.2)" (2008)
Erin Silver: [to Annie] Okay, what was that?
Annie Wilson: What?
Erin Silver: What? Ty Collins just practically put his tongue in your mouth. That's what.
Annie Wilson: Shut up!
Annie Wilson: Okay, you are obviously too messed up to see what's right in front of you, so let me be your eyes. Ty Collins is into you? You should be into Ty Collins or so to speak.
Annie Wilson: Okay, can you just give me one second because my old relationship ended 6 hours ago.
Erin Silver: Okay, the cure for a breakup is a hookup.

Annie Wilson: [to Silver] Hey, cool tattoo. What does it mean?
Erin Silver: It's the Chinese symbol for friendship 'cause you know, friends are cool.
Annie Wilson: Naomi has the same one.
Erin Silver: Yeah. All right, in 8th grade, my dad had an affair with my mom's best friend. I was... God, I was so angry you know, so unbelievably scared she'd find out, you know and she'd get a divorce or start drinking again. So, I... I didn't tell anybody, I kept it a secret, but then it started eating away at me, and I just... I had to tell someone. So I told my friend, Naomi. She promised me that she wouldn't tell anyone, so she told everyone.
Annie Wilson: Why would she do that?
Erin Silver: Because she needs to know more than anyone else. Because it gives her power to tear people down. So, my mom found out. She confronted my dad and everything that I prayed wouldn't happen happened. So now it's my greatest pleasure to make her pay for it.


"90210: Hollywood Forever (#1.7)" (2008)
Dixon Wilson: [to Silver] You are a very strange girl.
Erin Silver: Yeah? Well, I'm a strange girl who's gonna have the most rockingest half-birthday ever. Come on, "Psycho" at a cemetery? Awesomely perfect.

Erin Silver: [to Annie about Ethan] I think you guys have things in reverse. First you date, then marriage, and then a baby. But, you know, whatever works for you.


"90210: It's All Fun and Games (#5.3)" (2012)
[the girls are all sitting on the beach]
Adrianna Tate-Duncan: I still can't believe you lost Dixon.
Annie Wilson: That's funny coming from the girl whose list nearly killed Silver.
Adrianna Tate-Duncan: I was trying to help a friend get pregnant.
Annie Wilson: On a trapeze?
Naomi Clark: This is a really weird conversation.
[Some surfers walk by and Silver notices them]
Erin Silver: Look at them. We were them 2 years ago. All happy and healthy and hopeful and not afraid of anything.
Annie Wilson: Well, the worst thing that could happen was you making out with the wrong guy at prom.
Naomi Clark: Okay, Alec kissed me.
Erin Silver: Oh, my god.
Annie Wilson: When?
Naomi Clark: On our friend date.
Adrianna Tate-Duncan: How was it? Alec's hot.
[the others give Ade looks]
Adrianna Tate-Duncan: I mean, not that it makes it okay.
Erin Silver: What exactly happened?
Naomi Clark: We were having a wonderful day out. I mean, he was his usual ass self at first, but then I took him yachting and we had lunch and he won me a silver unicorn and the moment was perfect and then all of a sudden he kissed me. I've been trying to pretend like it didn't happen.
Adrianna Tate-Duncan: Okay, well, you have to tell Max.
Naomi Clark: Tell him what? That I tricked his best friend into spending the day with me, forced him to like me and then, "Oops, we kissed." With my track record with Austin and now this, Max is never gonna trust me again.
Erin Silver: You know, Max will understand, but you have to tell him. If you don't tell Max and then he somehow finds out, then your relationship will be ruined.


"90210: Clark Raving Mad (#2.16)" (2010)
Naomi Clark: I have a question.
Miles Cannon: Yes?
Naomi Clark: Hi, Naomi Clark.
Miles Cannon: Hi.
Naomi Clark: So, what happens if I, like you said, "dig deeper, find the journalistic truth", blah blah blah, but it all gets edited out by Navid?
Miles Cannon: Well...
Navid Shirazi: That's because you don't cite your sources.
Naomi Clark: And if I'm protecting my sources?
Navid Shirazi: [scoffing] A friend of a friend of a guy you used to date? No, that's not a credible source.
Miles Cannon: Actually, I do have to agree with Navid on this one. If we can't verify the information, then we shouldn't air it. We're not a tabloid here.
Naomi Clark: [standing up] But we can be.
Erin Silver: [pulling Naomi back down] You ever heard of making a good first impression?
Miles Cannon: Miss Clark, if you'd like me to review any segments you're unhappy with, I'll be glad to give you my honest, unbiased critique. But I'm warning you, I have very high standards.
Naomi Clark: [snorting with laughter] Well, they couldn't be that high, or you'd be working in news and not bossing a bunch of wannabe kids around for what, twenty grand a year?
Miles Cannon: If you're done, I'd like to discuss the next "Blaze" edition.
Naomi Clark: But I'm not.
Miles Cannon: Yes, you are.


"90210: All About a Boy (#3.14)" (2011)
Erin Silver: I'm the other woman. I'm a cheater and a liar, and I'm... your iguana is judging me.
Navid Shirazi: Bernstein's not... he's not judging you. He's myopic. He...
Erin Silver: He's judging me, and I don't blame him. This isn't me, Navid. I'm... I'm not the girl who messes around with her friend's boyfriend.


"90210: Senior Year, Baby (#3.1)" (2010)
Erin Silver: [watching Teddy play tennis] Ace him!
Navid Shirazi: He's not serving. You can only ace someone when you're serving.
Erin Silver: Let's just be grateful I'm using tennis terminology. When we first started dating, I told him to serve a no-hitter.


"90210: Vegas, Maybe? (#4.8)" (2011)
Erin Silver: Are you really texting a picture of yourself to Austin?
Naomi Clark: Um, would you look at me in this bikini? It'd be selfish not to share.


"90210: 'Tis Pity (#4.22)" (2012)
Ivy Sullivan: [sarcastic] Gee, guys. One bite of a doughnut and I'll probably totally forget that I'm being held against my will in an insane asylum because a crazy priest-in-training mistakenly assumed that I was suicidal. Thank your boyfriend for me, Annie. I'm having a blast.
Annie Wilson: Caleb isn't my boyfriend. He was just worried about you. Plus, you have been behaving dangerously lately. I've seen you myself going surfing in rough waters, and running across busy streets without looking first as if you want a car to hit you.
Erin Silver: Look, Ivy, I went through something like what you're going through a few years ago when my mother died. I've been in this situation when I was feeling angry, alienated and alone; wanting to do rash and dangerous things without regard to my own life hoping that I would die and be put out of my misery. They would have to let you go in like 24 hours if they didn't think that you really were a danger to yourself. And the doctor we talked to said that all you do is sit with your arms crossed and won't talk.
Ivy Sullivan: Yeah, well talking about your feelings might work for some people, but that's not going to make me feel any better. Therapy doesn't work for me. It never has. It never will.
Naomi Clark: Ivy, we get it. Raj died. You feel that nothing in life matters to you anymore. They're not going to let you go from here unless you tell them what they want to hear.
Ivy Sullivan: No, you don't get it! Nobody here gets it! Nobody understands what I am going through! And talking about it is not going to help me!
Annie Wilson: We just want you to come home. Can you just please talk about what you want us to do?
Ivy Sullivan: You know what I want you to do? You can start by leaving me alone! And stop bringing me things like doughnuts! Okay? Because I'm not gonna do it! I am not baring my soul to these jerks here or any of you, and I don't care about the consequences! Okay? I don't care! I'd rather be locked up in here and play checkers with these crazies for the rest of my life then talk about what I am going through! But it's not all bad. Gloria my roommate, the woman you just met... she's is not a bad competition... that is on days when she doesn't think that she's the queen of England!


"90210: Okaeri, Donna! (#1.19)" (2009)
Kelly Taylor: Okay, it's time for your mood chart. Let's see here, it's 9:30. What is your mood?
Erin Silver: Irritated.
Kelly Taylor: Okay, irritated. How irritated, on a scale of one to ten?
Erin Silver: Well, I was at a four. But you asked me that, brought me up to a six.
Kelly Taylor: Six. Okay, then. How would you like to spend your time before bed? Would you like to journal?
Erin Silver: No, I would not like to journal. Nor would I like to use the word "journal" as a verb.


"90210: How Much Is That Liam in the Window (#3.6)" (2010)
Navid Shirazi: Hey, uh, do you remember at the beginning of the school year when everybody promised to stay late and help me put out the "Blaze"?
Erin Silver: Sure do.
Navid Shirazi: That was a load of crap, huh?
Erin Silver: Sure was.
Navid Shirazi: Good to know.


"90210: It's Getting Hot in Here (#3.13)" (2011)
Adrianna Tate-Duncan: Why should I be grateful? I've lost everything I spent my entire life working for. All my life, all I ever wanted to be was famous. And now I've lost my contract with the record label. I've lost all my endorcement contracts. All my concert and TV appearances have been canceled. Everyone that I know has abandoned me. My whole entourage, Victor, Renee... even Laurel woun't return any of my calls or speak to me. It's so unfair.
Naomi Clark: You know, Ade, it really isn't all that unfair.
Adrianna Tate-Duncan: What?
Annie Wilson: Naomi...
Erin Silver: No, she's right. Enough already!
Adrianna Tate-Duncan: What do you mean?
Naomi Clark: No one forced you to steal a dead guy's songs and pass them off as your own.
Adrianna Tate-Duncan: What are you saying?
Erin Silver: She's saying that you did a really awful and unethical thing in passing off Javier's songs as your own just so you could sign a recording contract for yourself. You got caught and now you're paying the price.
Naomi Clark: I'm saying you had it coming.
Adrianna Tate-Duncan: I can't believe this! Is that what you think, too, Annie? That I had it coming? Huh?
Annie Wilson: [hesitating] Uh... well... I mean, what you did was sort of twisted. Plus, you behavior afterwords, well...
Adrianna Tate-Duncan: So now you all think that I'm a horrible person because of what I did? Because of one stupid, spur-of-the-moment choice I made? I thought I could count on you. I thought you were by friends! You're supposed to support me and my actions... no matter what! I thought that my friends would stand behind and support me during the worst time of my life!
Naomi Clark: [incredilous] Oh, my God! All we've ever done is support you. And believe me, it hasn't been easy. Since you dropped out of school and became famous, everything you talk about has always been about you... you... you... and you! It's like the whole world must revolve around you!
Adrianna Tate-Duncan: Okay... well, I'm sorry for being such a burden!
Erin Silver: What you should be sorry for is letting fame and sucess go to your head which has turned you into a vain, self-absorbed bitch that none of us can even stand to be around!
Naomi Clark: [to Silver] Preach it, sister!
Annie Wilson: Guys, come on.
Adrianna Tate-Duncan: You know what? I knew you guys couldn't handle my fame. I knew you were jealous!
Naomi Clark: [sarcastic] Oh... yeah, really? Because all I ever wanted to do in life was someday get into a car accident with a big pop star so I could steal his music and become just like you!
Adrianna Tate-Duncan: [gets up and walks out; still in denial] I don't need to listen to this!


"Beverly Hills, 90210: The End of the World as We Know It (#9.23)" (1999)
Erin Silver: [Erin wants proof that David was cheating] The nanny cam will prove it!
David Silver: The what? When did we get that?
Erin Silver: Mom and dad are interviewing nannies.


"Beverly Hills, 90210: What's in a Name (#10.10)" (1999)
Jackie Taylor: Hey would you like to call daddy and wish him a Happy Thanksgiving?
Erin Silver: Yeah!
Jackie Taylor: Here you go!
Kelly Taylor: Well done, Mother!


"90210: Environmental Hazards (#2.5)" (2009)
Erin Silver: I know that you're mad at me, but we have a much bigger problem.
Adrianna Tate-Duncan: Oh, my God! Naomi's wearing sweats?
Erin Silver: Yeah.
Adrianna Tate-Duncan: What?
Erin Silver: I don't know.
