Their “subs” are our “grinders.” Their “liquor stores” are our “packies.” Their “milkshakes” are our “frappes.” If you’re not from Boston, you are different and you can’t be trusted. Tune in to this season of Boston’s Finest for more action from the city we all love. Tonight at 9/8c to TNT.

1. You went to Fenway every week and sat here.

Bonus points if you bought your tickets in Kenmore Square from scalpers named Sean and Donny.

2. You thought this is how everyone bowls…

…and that 10-pin bowling only happened on the Flintstones.

3. Your family’s idea of a party weekend was Old Sturbridge Village.

4. Literally every pizza joint in your neighborhood was Greek.

5. You went to B.U. so all B.C. kids look like this.

6. Your room looked like this.

7. You STILL think this guy would have made a good President.

8. You saw the Pixies at the Rat and told all your friends that CBGBs can suck it.

9. You parents bought off-brand soda from Store 24.

10. Your gamer friends always kept it classy.

11. Your after-prom party was at Revere Beach.

12. You saw all your movies at Jordan’s Furniture.

M.O.M., the Motion Odyssey Movie ride.

13. You parallel park like a frickin’ CHAMP.

And you know if you “pahk” your “cah” anywhere NEAR “Hahvahd Yahd” you’re getting towed to “Woostah.”

18. You got all your music here.

19. THIS was your idea of an on-screen romance.

Watch the whole Aquarium video here.
