Favorite thing about NYC:
Sterling: "The fact that a lot of famous people come here to make films. I like bumping into them like, Hey, you're Queen Latifah!"
Carly: "I like all the fancy places and the skyscrapers in Manhattan. They don't have tall buildings in Queens."
Sterling: "At first, she wasn't talking at all, but then she started talking once we started making stuff together."
Carly: "She had pink hair! She seemed really nice and talkative."
Sterling: "Playing the guitar. I really want to build one of those. And we both really liked making the little cars."
Carly: "We got to do cool things like build a spider car. It was kind of easy—no, actually it was kind of medium."
Sterling: "I get annoyed with people who are just like me, but she's really quiet and not hyper. She's cool!"
Carly: "We like the same things. We both like everything that's pink. I want to dye my hair blond with pink in it."
