Aylin: "Alright Charlie, okay, no need to be overdramatic about it." (Episode 5, Adaptability)

Charlie: "Friendship shove!" *playfully shoves Aylin*
Aylin: *shoves him back way harder* (Episode 5, Adaptability)
“The theme for this week is adaptability and what that means to me is to always be saying ‘yes’, no matter what they say. They could say ‘We’re going to shoot upside down’. They could say we are going to record in Bethesda, Maryland’, if Bethesda actually is in Maryland. But the point is, no matter what they tell you, say yes and roll with it.” (Episode 5, Adaptability)

(A letter to Aylin upon his elimination read in a Theatricality bonus scene)
"There are no words to tell you how happy you make me, like stupid happy, like that first bite of the brownie mix from the other day happy. I don't know why we stumble and weave through this tangled universe the way that we do or why I'm always looking for that silver lining, like a sunny idiot surrounded by rainclouds, or why on earth you'd be attracted to that... but what I do know is something about you pushes the clouds a little further away and make the day a little less disastrous. I know that plenty of people would say that it's impossible to have what we had here but I know that it was impossible for it to happen anywhere else. As it was then, so it is now, you will always be amazing to me.

Charlie: "So it's not just me."
"Funny thing about Jane Lynch is, I'm a huge Aaron Sorkin fan, I eat up literally everything he's ever done. I was watching reruns of The West Wing and their was this reporter frantically asking a question, and it's Jane Lynch!"
(Upon the Glee Project recording booth window) "I kinda remember something like that happening... I will say this... okay... um... it-it's..." *stuttering*

"Am I interested in winning (The Glee Project)? Of course; who's not interested in winning? It's winning. Who doesn't like winning? I like winning, I'm sure you like winning." *gestures to other person in the room* "Winning?" *looks back at camera* "It's a good thing," *pause and laughs* "But what I've found is... winning is dictated by the experience, not by the outcome."

Aylin: "I don't know,"
Charlie: "Ohmygod. Ohmygod." *pause* "You follow it up WITH A QUESTION!"
Aylin: "I don't know, how much does a polar bear weigh!?"
Charlie: "LET'S HAVE SOME SEX!"
Charlie: "That's it. That's the pickup line. How much does a polar bear weigh; let's have some sex."
Charlie: "It's okay; I shipped Aylin and tampons awhile ago too."
Aylin: "Thank you!"
Charlie: "Aypons. Or Tamlin. I don't know... there's not really an effective way to ship Aylin and tampons."
"Do I like How I Met Your Mother? Well... to answer that," *adjusts the camera* "I request the highest of fives."

Charlie: "NO. NO. NO. NO. No."
Aylin: *mimicking an accent* "Charlie bit me!
"Yes! Damian and I are related. I was literally in the shower and I got a text from my mom saying; You know Damian McGinty, that guy on Glee? And I was like; Yeah. Then she says: You know we're related to him right? and I'm just like; whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaatttttttt?"
Charlie: "This is a better love story then Twilight. Most things are a better life story then Twilight."
