Brb, gonna go steal a yacht because someone was mean to me.
One of the best parts about teen drama shows is how utterly ridiculous the drama gets. I mean, that’s what I’m here for!
But every once in a while, a scene is so over-the-top dramatic, it’s hard to take seriously. Maybe it’s ridiculously angsty, super cheesy, or even ends up being unintentionally funny.
Here are 21 ridiculously dramatic teen drama moments:
