In the "O.C." pilot, which aired on August 5, 2003, Bilson's superficial character Summer Roberts only had a few lines, the show's creator Josh Schwartz recently recalled in an interview with The Huffington Post. "One of which was, 'I gotta pee,'" he added. But, luckily for Bilson, it was Summer's other brief line of dialogue that eventually became her catchphrase.
Though Summer was quick to hit on Newport Beach newcomer Ryan Atwood (Benjamin McKenzie), when she found out he was from Chino in San Bernardino County -- a city that couldn't hold a candle to the Abercrombie-looking clan in Orange County -- she only had two words for him.

"Ew" became a Summer staple and Bilson -- who currently stars on The CW series "Hart of Dixie," which is produced by Schwartz -- recreated the iconic line in a video, which Schwartz posted on YouTube (above) and shared via Twitter.
