    That was hilarious. And I love seeing Haley younger, she's so cute. :P

    Edit: Hmmm, could those boots be considered "lime green"?

    Ah, the teen years... when the slightest comment can breed a lifetime of enmity.

    And unless I mistake my guess, those are the infamous lime green boots!

    I wonder if the girls look back, like many of us have, to our high school years and ask "why the hell did I dress like that?".

    Eh. Whether they do or not - GET HER, HALEY!

    Note that while Haley has moved on to more stylish boots, Crystal pretty much has the same hairstyle.

    @Moebius: Nope, we saw him over here.
    Also, should we assume that –*if they're the Lime Green Boots of Speed that don't go with what Haley's wearing –*she and Crystal were being – *gasp* – sarcastic?

    I was delayed trying to find the reference. When I got back, the boots had been mentioned four times already.

    Second, I believe. The first is way back here.

    And, yeah, nice to see the Boots of Speed.

    And I just love that this whole enmity between them started over nothing at all.

    I think this is the first appearance of Haley's father.

    And I love 19 year old Haley. Totally powerful lime boots! And is that an eyebrow piercing?

    I don't get it. They compliment each other and that's what triggers this death feud? That makes no sense!

    I find it rather hilarious that two snide fashion comments caused the feud.

    Here I was thinking that it occurred during a mission. Ah well.

    Pull another Bluff Haley! Crystal obvious doesn't have any ranks in sense motive!

    Haley Didn't like the way the boots looked, and I'm pretty sure Crystal didn't like her hair like that.
    They were really insulting each other.

    lol, yeah it does they were both being sarcastic and they both knew it. Apparently they insult people they don't like in similar ways. at least that's my best guess
