It might be a tad unhealthy for us to still be clinging to the hope that Spencer and Toby will get reunited on Pretty Little Liars, and that perhaps Toby’s time on the “A” team will just prove to be a bad dream or something. C’mon — it could happen.
So with our rose-colored glasses firmly in place, here are our picks for the top Spoby moments ever. Sadly, he’s only shirtless in one of them, but you can’t always get what you want in life.
5. The two get better acquainted inside his truck (Season 2, Episode 15: “A Hot Piece of ‘A’”)
This show loves a good making-out-in-a-car scene, and this was one of the best, as Spencer tells Toby, “Shutting you out is killing me.” Ah, the good old days, back when we thought the only killing Toby might be doing was metaphorical.
4. Spencer goes to Toby outside the haunted house (Season 1, Episode 21: “Monsters in the End”)
We don’t usually think of haunted houses as romantic, but we’re proven wrong with Spencer and Toby’s swoon-worthy smooch at one. Sure, the fact that Toby is on the “A” team makes us wonder if he was actually responsible for trapping Spence in the haunted house, but mainly we love seeing Spencer kiss Toby even as her mom is discouraging it. Sorry, Mom!
3. Spoby’s first kiss (Season 1, Episode 19: “A Person of Interest”)
What’s with this show and sexy parking lot kisses, between Ezria’s in Season 2 and this one outside a cheap hotel. Odd location choice aside, Spoby’s first kiss takes our breath away, as Spencer admits she wasn’t expecting it. Then again, Spencer seems to focus more on the fact that Toby claims to have kicked her ass at Scrabble than the actual kiss. That’s our Spencer!
2. Spoby’s first time doing you-know-what (Season 3, Episode 12: “The Lady Killer”)
Why did we have to find out Toby is “A” during the same episode as this magical Spoby moment? Still, it’s a testament to how amazing Spoby’s first sex scene is that the Toby reveal doesn’t ruin our love for it — especially with Toby telling Spencer afterwards, “I am exactly where I need to be.” We just wish he was exactly anywhere but spending time with the “A” team.
1. Spencer buys Toby a truck — and he says “I love you” (Season 2, Episode 3: “My Name Is Trouble”)
This scene was a twofer of cuteness, with Spencer first buying Toby a truck (dayum, girl!). Then, Toby says “I love you” as Spencer admits she wishes she had been the first one to say it. See — guys can talk about their feelings. You just have to buy them a vehicle first.
