Hester High is where normal high school stereotypes are anything but cool. The gay guy is the most popular kid in school, and he’s not just a sidekick — in fact, the crush-worthy hottie is the one tagging along in his wake. If “Faking It” taught us anything in its first episode, it’s that the norm is seriously overrated.

The premiere was filled with a ton of jaw-dropping moments, but we’ve handpicked the ones that set off our pro-social radars. Here are our favorite world-saving one-liners from tonight’s episode:

+ Netflix Gets Newsworthy

In the beginning of the episode, Karma tells Amy she can’t spend another Friday night watching Netflix. Amy fires back that there’s a really great “documentary on child slavery in Bangladesh.” Who better to lead the show than two BFFs who spend weekends getting caught up on major world issues?

+ The Patriarchy isn’t Popular 

Ah, yes, homecoming season is here at Hester High. Even though Shane is the one pushing the girls to take home the title of “Homecoming Queens,” he makes it clear that “no one here cares about that outdated, patriarchal tradition.” Good to know he’s been listening to his feminist BFF!

+ Gay Hate is So ‘90s

The patriarchy might be passé at this progressive high school, but it’s not the only thing. After queen bee Lauren tries to thwart Karma and Amy’s homecoming bid, Shane calls her out by throwing shade at her gay hate: “Bullying the gays…someone reeks of the late ‘90s.”

It’s only week one, and we’re already lovestruck over Karma and Amy’s budding faux-romance, Shane’s one-liners, and all the ways Hester High defies normal high school stereotypes. What was your favorite pro-social one-liner from this week’s episode? Share it below!
