Can You Tell Summer & Zoe Quotes Apart?

by Alyse Whitney

If you look at photos of Rachel Bilson from 2003 when she starred on The O.C. and ones from 2015 on Hart of Dixie, you probably couldn't tell them apart. The gorgeous, youthful actress has defied all rules of time, which can especially be seen when looking at her two biggest roles, 12 years apart. Both Summer and Zoe are outspoken, fun, and always have a great zinger up their sleeves; in fact, they're so similar that I wonder if you can tell apart Summer Roberts and Zoe Hart quotes. Honestly, you could argue that Zoe is just a slightly more grown-up version of Summer, although the end of The O.C., Summer was getting married and changed from being a materialistic party girl to being an environmental activist and Zoe is still finding her feet as a doctor with an ever-complicated love life, so it could be the other way around, too.

Either way, both characters are living in the awesome Josh Schwartz universe, so they're always going to be quotable. Both characters have uttered "ew!" and probably a few other same lines, but when it comes to declarations of love or perfect comebacks to enemies, can you tell them apart? Test yourself with 11 quotes below, write down your answers, and then check to see if you're right at the bottom of the page. And don't go through a rage blackout if you don't get them all right.
