Episode Quotes
Brooke: He's so serious, I thought I'd lighten him up a little
Karen: And you couldn't take him to a comedy?
Brooke: I guess you're not a big fan of tattoos then.
Karen: No, not on my son.
Brooke: I think I could light my self on fire and my mother wouldn't notice, so sometimes it's hard for me to remember some moms would.

Lucas: I'm glad you're back Mom.
Karen: You too ... now I can kill you for that tattoo.

Haley: I’m sorry what did you just say?
Nathan: About what?
Haley: About the way that we started. (Haley's phone rings)
Nathan: Nothing. Just when I first came to you for tutoring, I figured the easiest way to mess with Lucas was to hook up with you, but --
Haley: So everything between us has been a lie?
Nathan: No that’s not.
Haley: I cannot believe this, Lucas was right about you all along. (answering machine picks up)
Keith: (voice) Haley, pick up. There’s been an accident. Lucas is hurt pretty bad. Haley?
Haley: (on the phone) Keith, hey. He’s going to make it right? Okay, thanks.
Nathan: Come on, I’ll take you to the hospital.
Haley: I can’t talk to you right now, Nathan.
Nathan: Haley, look I’m sorry I didn’t mean it like that.
Haley: Just go. Just go.

Karen: Were you drinking tonight?
Keith: Karen --
Karen: Were you?
Keith: I wasn’t drunk.
Karen: That’s not what I asked you. Were you drinking before you drove Lucas?
Keith: Yes, but ...
Karen: I trusted you. I want you to leave.

(to Lucas in his hospital room)
Peyton: Hey, it’s me. Can you hear me? Squeeze my hand if you can hear me, okay? Never mind. Um, I just came by to tell you that I’m probably not going to be around very much. With Brooke here it’s just kind of weird. But I’m with you Lucas, you know that. And I’ll wait forever if I have to.

Nathan: : So this split with you and Dad. This is real, huh?
Deb: Yeah, honey it is. How do you feel about that?
Nathan: Actually I’m fine. How sad is that?

Haley: I know what it’s like to need Lucas in your life.
Peyton: I never let myself need anybody. Ever. Not since my mom died. But with Lucas, he looks at me and he really sees me. You know? Just right down into my soul.
Haley: I just want to tell him that I love him and I’m sorry.
Peyton: I just want to tell him I’m in love with him.

(at the river court)
Jake: Hey, you gotta love watching people make sense out of the way they feel for Lucas.
Peyton: Yeah who knew Tim could spell, right?

Nathan: Hey man. I kind of need to talk to you. So I’m here because everything’s screwed up. I know you don’t trust me with Haley, but I like her a lot, you know? She’s hurting right now too. She needs you to open your eyes man. She feels like she can’t be forgiven. And I’m sort of in the same place. (puts his hands on the bed) This accident, might not turn out so bad, you know? You get to take a break from the game. The pressure and peoples expectations. I wish I had that chance. This might be hard to believe but maybe you’re the lucky one. You can get out.

Haley: Nathan I am not in the mood right now, okay?
Nathan: Lucas is awake. I was there when he opened his eyes. I went to see him.
Haley: Why?
Nathan: 'Cause I knew you couldn’t. I wanted him to know that you were thinking about him. Look, I know that it was wrong to go after you for the reasons that I did. I can’t apologize for it. I’m glad I did it. I’m not that person anymore. It’s because of you. Let me take you to him.
