Meanwhile, Brooke, who was injured during the game, has to have Peyton drive her home after she takes a few too many pain pills. After an unlikely series of events, Peyton has Haley come along for help. Back in Tree Hill, Karen and Keith attend a business dinner that turns into a brawl when Deb and Dan are seated at the same table as them.

Episode Quotes
Brooke: Where the hell are we?
Haley: Miles from normal.

Karen: What does this dress say to you?
Lucas: Uh, beware of crazy ladies that talk to dresses.

(while announcing)
Mouth: I’m Mouth McFadden and sitting in with at tonight’s away game is Haley James. Haley, how do you see tonight’s match up?
Haley: I’d rather not be associated with your lunacy, Mouth.

Brooke: Did you see that?
Peyton: What?
Brooke: Nathan just gave her the nod.
Peyton: What nod?
Brooke: The "let’s hook up after the game" nod. Wanna know what I think? I think Nathan likes Tutor Girl. But I think Tutor Girl likes Lucas. And I know I like Lucas. And I don't know who the hell you like anymore. This is all turning into one big love (pause) rectangle plus one ... whatever that is.

Nathan: Why do you want my life so bad anyway, man?
Lucas: Dude, don’t flatter yourself, all right? You’re about the last person I want to trade places with.
Nathan: Oh yeah? Well, all I know is you came out nowhere and started grabbing everything you could from me, my game, my girl ...
Lucas: What about you, huh? I bet your grades sucked before you met me, but I didn’t see you going to Haley for help then!
Nathan: Who said what me and Haley have is about grades?

Brooke: We should totally hang out more! What is your name?
Haley: (slowly) Haley.
Brooke: Yeah, I don’t like that name. Let’s call you … Brooke.

(not wearing clothing)
Nathan: Dude, this is total crap! These guys are morons, not killers. I bet it’s not even a real gun.
Lucas: Let's just play the game, get our clothes, and get home, okay? Ah, we need two bottles of spring feminine cleansers.
Nathan: Oh, great, a pair of douche bags!
Lucas: A case of beer and we’re out of here.
Nathan: What? How are we going to pull that off?
Lucas: Would you card us? I didn't think so!

Keith: Oh, what do you know? We finally got the center aisle this year. Guy must’ve thought I said Dan Scott.
Karen: No, Dan’s table has one spot for Dan and five for his ego.

The Things: Oh yeah, yeah baby!
Lucas: (sarcastically) Yeah, yeah, right! All right! Yahoo! (serious) Yeah, enough’s enough. Give us our clothes.

Lucas: So this Haley thing. You know, for some reason she feels like you’re not full of crap. Don’t take advantage of that.
Nathan: I’m not going to.
Lucas: I know you’re not. Because if you do, you’re going to live to regret it.
Nathan: Bring it on. Hey, listen. Look man, you didn’t have to get in that car when those guys grabbed me. Especially after you warned me not to.
Lucas: Right, whatever. You know the way I see it, I mean, if they would’ve taken you out, who the hell else am I gonna have to fight with, right?
Nathan: Same person I have.

Lucas: (closing voiceover) This happens sometimes in moments settled. And hovered and remained for much more than a moment. And sounds stopped. And movements stopped. For much, much more than a moment. And then the moment was gone.

Episode Goofs
When Peyton, Brooke and Haley are in the car after leaving the basketball game, Brooke throws her pom-poms out of the window. When the camera returns to Brooke, she throws another pom-pom out of the window even though she's already thrown both out.

Cultural References
Episode Title: Every Night Is Another Story

"Every Night Is Another Story" is a song by The Early November.

Lucas: As happens sometimes a moment settled and hovered and remained for much more than a moment. And sound stopped and movement stopped for much, much more than a moment. And then the moment was gone.

Lucas is quoting a line from John Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men. On the bus ride to the basketball game, Lucas is seen reading the book.

Character Names: Thing, Thing 1 and Thing 3

The character names are a reference to Dr. Seuss' The Cat in the Hat characters Thing 1 and Thing 2.

Episode References
(to Haley while talking about Nathan)
Peyton: Just be careful, alright?

Peyton said the same thing to Haley in "Crash Into You" when the two talk about Haley tutoring Nathan.

Whitey being able to throw players off of the bus and make them walk 30 miles home would be highly unlikely to happen in real life. By throwing Lucas and Nathan off of the bus and making them walk home, he endangered their lives, and in reality, in doing so he would most likely get him fired from his position as a coach and teacher.
