Episode Quotes
Millie: Green is the new orange.

Clay: Speaking of Jamie, he’s got a birthday coming up. Any idea what he wants for a gift?
Nathan: You spoiled him with all the signed jerseys, just working down your client list. I think you’re up to Jerry Rice.

Julian: What’s keeping you in Tree Hill? You came back for Peyton and she’s not here.
Brooke: So did you.

Jamie: Aunt Quinn is here she surprised me with a cake.
Clay: The last time a girl surprised me with cake…
Haley: Let's open gifts!

Quinn: Listen the Bobcats have no depth in the backcourt so get this guy paid, Jerry Maguire.

Clay: (to Nathan about Jamie) When he thinks back to his best days as a kid, he’ll remember this day. Being safe and happy.

Brooke: Peyton used to say people always leave. Who knew she was talking about her stupid ass.

Julian: You know what I wished for?
Brooke: What?
Julian: Skinny dipping. Are you coming or what?
Brooke: That’s what she said.

Julian: I decided not to produce the movie.
Brooke: Why? That was an important movie.
Julian: No, it was a lucrative movie, not an important one. I want to make important movies. Plus there’s this girl that I’m in love with and I couldn’t stand to be away from her that long.

Jamie: Was your 7th birthday as good as this one?
Nathan: You want the truth?
Jamie: I’m seven, I can handle it.
Nathan: Well we had a big birthday party planned like this one, but Grandpa Dan realized there was a pee-wee basketball game the same day and canceled the party. My team ended up losing, and it wasn’t a very good day.
Jamie: Did you ever forgive him?
Nathan: No, I never did.
Jamie: You should. I would.
Nathan: Well you’re a good man Jamie Scott.
Jamie: So are you Dad. You’re Nathan Scott. I think you can forgive him.

Dan: Forgiveness is never easy. Bitterness is easy, hatred is easy. But forgiveness, that is a tough one. Sometimes people say things they don't mean or do things they can't take back. Sometimes we do things we can't take back. We're all afraid of something. I was afraid, I was dying. But in the face of great despair, I had an epiphany. What I have done is who I am. But what I have done is not who I will be. It's been nearly 37 million seconds, 10,000 hours, 14 months since I realized what I have done is not who I can be. Unburden yourself from the mistakes of the past. And when you do, your heart grows stronger, I should know. Mine was supposed to go out long time ago. But it doesn't mean that what you have done is forgotten and what you have done remembers.
