I'm totally over the sterotype that says Hanna Marin is the dumb one on Pretty Little Liars. Her wisdom may be a little on the quirky side, but she's full of smart ideas. And basically, Hanna Marin's Pretty Little Liars quotes fit every situation. Whether you're in a good mood, feeling upset, or mad as hell — Hanna's been there and she knows how you feel.
But even better, she can put that feeling into words. Who can forget the time she accurately described how complicated the truth can be? Her metaphor was spot on. "The truth is like a big bowl of spaghetti that's all tangled. Have you ever untangled spaghetti? There you go."
On Pretty Little Liars, Hanna is often the comic relief, and thank goodness for that. The ABC Family show would be even darker if we didn't get to laugh every once in awhile. But I don't always want to laugh at Hanna's expense. Besides, I think it brings out the worst in her and in Spencer whenever Hanna says something like, "things just went from worse to worser" and then Spencer corrects her — in the process making Hanna feel even more stupid.
She may be funny, and she may say dumb things sometimes, but Hanna's also pretty deep. Here are 27 times she had the perfect response to every situation life can throw at you.

This is how I feel about Hanna and Caleb. Haleb forever.

It's the truth.
When You Decide to Stop Worrying About What Other People Think
Everyone is so concerned with worrying about themselves that they're probably not even paying attention to if you have a pimple or if your hair is a little dirty that day. So, don't worry about other people's opinions.
When Someone Says You're too Addicted to Your Phone
The Internet knows all the answers to everything. If I leave it at home, how am I supposed to know what else that one random actor has starred in?

Love is love.

Sometimes you just need to be sad for a little while to get through something.

Don't even get me started on all that Calculus I learned under the guise that I'd need it for everyday life. (The most I use math for now is calculating the odds are that a certain contestant will win The Bachelor.)
When You Need to Draw the Line
Not cool, bro.
When You're Justifying Things
When Someone Accuses You of Changing
Respect that over time I'm not going to be the same person I was when you met me. That's not a bad thing.
When You See Your Old Facebook Pictures
Who let you get that haircut/dye job/outfit? Friends don't let friends look like demented creamsicles and then post pictures online.
When You Need to Get Someone Off Your Case
Don't mess with me.
When You Had a Long Day
Sometimes champagne is the only cure.

When Your Friend is Dating a Jerk
