In Friday Night, Paige says to Emma Nelson that her crush on Sean Cameron is more obvious than Heather's nose job.

Season 2

In Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, Paige tells Jimmy Brooks that she saw better dancing at Heather's grade 3 sock-hop than Spinner's robot dance moves.

Season 4

In Mercy Street, Paige calls Heather's eyebrows "tragically over plucked", and Emma says that her tweezers should be confiscated.

In Neutron Dance, while Paige is trying to impress Matt Oleander with her yoga skills, he goes over to Heather to help her, which makes Paige jealous.
