23 Of The Most Ridiculously Dramatic Teen Drama Moments Ever

Someone's gotta tell Lucas Scott he's not THAT great of a writer.

One of the best parts about teen drama shows is, well, the DRAMA. Where would we be without teen angst, kisses in the rain, and fights in the school hallway?

But every once in a while, there's a scene that's SO incredibly dramatic, it's borderline ridiculous. Maybe it's a cheesy monologue, a huge overreaction, or just something you cannot picture an actual human teenager saying.

Here are 23 of the most over-the-top dramatic moments on teen dramas:

1. First, when Veronica told Archie they couldn't break up because they were "endgame" on Riverdale.

2. When Clare confronted Eli in front of everyone after he seemed to be over their breakup on Degrassi: The Next Generation.

Clare yells "Did you flip a switch and erase me from your memory?" at Eli
