Nathan: I called your house. Your mom said I was here.
Haley: Crap. I should lie to her next time.
Nathan: Look, I didn’t know until Brooke read that note, okay? I didn’t even know there was a note until later. I wouldn’t do that to you.
Nathan: Great, so cool?
Haley: No, no.
Nathan: Well, you believe me, right?
Haley: Yeah, I believe you’re sorry.
Nathan: Well then, what?
Haley: Look, this whole tutoring, hanging out, whatever it is, thing. It’s just a bad idea. I’m done. I’m just done.
Brooke: (to Peyton) We're young. We're fine. Let's do some damage.
Keith: What’s with the boxes?
Karen: Oh, bookshelves. And they were supposed to come assembled.
Keith: You gonna put them together all by yourself?
Karen: Actually, I was going to offer you dinner to help me.
Karen: Perfect. I’ll be closing the café around seven. So it’s a date?
Keith: It’s a date.
Brooke: Look, you’re blaming Nathan for something that I did and that’s not fair. I was drunk and I was pissed and I found your note and you know the rest. I want to make it up to you.
Haley: By going away?
Brooke: By hooking you and Nathan up tonight. What’s your idea of a perfect date?
Haley: Watching you get hit by a bus.
Brooke: And that sense of humor. Nathan’s really lucky. He’ll be here at 7. Have fun.
Nathan: I’m not very experienced with this so, uh…
Haley: Ordering food?
Nathan: No. I mean, with Peyton, it was all just parties and games and drama. I never really did anything like this. This is different.
Haley: Different good? Different weird?
Nathan: No, good.
Nathan: I’m really glad you decided to come.
Nathan: Ready for this next envelope?
Nathan: Reveal a secret that nobody else knows about you.
Haley: Okay. When I was in second grade, I stole some candy.
Nathan: Come on, that’s not a secret. Tell me for something to real.
Haley: I cheated on a Geometry test last year.
Nathan: Haley James cheated?
Haley: Yeah. My dad was out of town and um, my mom was sick and I had to take care of her so I didn’t really have time to study.
Nathan: Did you get caught?
Haley: No. That was the point. I mean, I knew what I had done and that didn’t sit right for me.
Nathan: So you started tutoring?
Haley: Yeah. I guess I thought it would be like, penance, or something. But it turns out I really liked it.
Haley: Are you really that embarrassed to be seen with me?
Nathan: No. He just, he was gonna --
Haley: Why are you only nice to me when we’re alone? You know, for a few hours there I was actually starting to think that you weren’t a son of a bitch and you just, God, fooled me again.
(Haley gets up and walks out)
Lucas: So why'd you call me, anyway? I'm not Nathan or one of the guys.
Brooke: Because I knew you'd come through.
Karen: Please tell me that you were somewhere in the land of no phones.
Lucas: I know. I should’ve called.
Karen: Coming home would’ve been another option.
Lucas: You’re right. I’m sorry.
Karen: You, you looked me in the eye and said "Go to Italy. I can take care of myself."
Lucas: Look, I can, Mom! A guy drugged Peyton’s drink at a party. Brooke called me for help. I took her home, waited until she felt better. Truth.
Karen: As excuses go, that’s pretty solid. Is she okay?
Lucas: Yeah, she’ll be fine.
Nathan: I screw up a lot, alright? And being around you, I just, I don’t want to be that guy anymore.
Haley: Well who do you want to be, Nathan?
Nathan: I want to be someone who’s good enough to be seen with you.
Haley: Well you should have thought of that last night. You know, I keep, I keep putting myself out there, and you keep blowing it, it’s probably a good thing because at this point there’s nothing you could say or do that’s gonna surprise me. (Nathan kisses her) Except that. You shouldn’t have done that, Nathan.
Nathan: I wanted to.
(Haley jumps into his arms and kisses him again)
(to Keith as she's about to board the plane to Florence)
Karen: You remember when you said the other night that I had good instincts and that I should trust them?
Keith: Yeah. (Karen leans in and kisses a shocked Keith)
Karen: You were right.
Brooke: (to Peyton) So, been to any bad parties lately?
