One Tree Hill: Something I Can Never Have

In the fallout of the revelation of Jules and Dan's agreement, Keith becomes increasingly violent towards Dan and angry towards Lucas and Karen for lying to him. At school, Anna turns Felix in when she discovers that he was the one that vandalized Peyton's locker, a fact that also leads to Brooke breaking up with Felix. Meanwhile, Brooke learns that she's moving to California and Nathan, with Deb's encouragement, decides to take a chance and goes to bring Haley home.

Episode Quotes
Lucas: (voiceover) Charles Bukowski once wrote "There will always be something to ruin our lives. It all depends on what or which finds us first. You're always ripe and ready to be taken."

(flashback; in Nathan and Haley's bathroom)
Nathan: Haley, come on already, we're gonna be late for our own wedding reception.
Haley: Okay, just give me two more minutes. The shower massager has three speeds.
Nathan: Yeah, and you have one: slow.

Keith: How could you do this to me?
Dan: Every time I thought about you screwing my wife and the heart attack you gave me it got easier.
Keith: I can't believe you.
Dan: Well, maybe you could find out in the phone book. Look under "W" for whore. But wait she's not that smart so look under "H".

Peyton: I can't believe it's almost the last time walking to class together.
Brooke: I can't believe I'm getting weepy about walking to class.

Brooke: We are finished!
Felix: Look, let me explain.
Brooke: No! I cannot believe you would be such a hateful scumbag as to write dyke anywhere, let alone on my best friend's locker.
Felix: Brooke, wait.
Brooke: I am so glad I am moving! I had no idea I was a grand wizard's next door neighbor! And you actually had me starting to think you were a decent guy.
Felix: Look, I was trying to protect my sister, Brooke! Look, I did it at the dance when Peyton and I argued and you dumped me! I wasn't thinking!
Brooke: Well, what a surprise!
Felix: I was in a dark place and I took it out on Peyton. I'm sorry!
Brooke: Yeah, you're right, you are sorry! So why don't you crawl back into your dark little place and die there!
Felix: Brooke! Brooke!

(flashback; Nathan and Haley are recording their answering machine message)
Haley: Hi, this is Nathan and Haley Scott, please leave a message ... or not.
Nathan: That's the worst thing I've ever heard.
Haley: Shut up, it rhymed, I like it!
Nathan: (presses a button) Oops.
Machine: Message has been erased.
Haley: Oh fine, let's just do one together, okay?
Nathan: Wait a minute, isn't that something only really cheesy couples do?
Haley: Yeah, well we are a really cheesy couple, mister.
Nathan: Good point.
Haley: Okay. (presses record) Hi, you've reached Haley --
Nathan: -- and Nathan, I live here too.
Haley: Yes, Nathan lives here too because we're married!
Nathan: And, uh, we can't get to the phone right now because we're, um ...
Haley: We're having sex? I mean, just, we're having really --
Nathan: Okay.
Haley: -- hot sex. (Nathan grabs her; they roll off of the bed) Oh, we're still on. Uh, leave a message!
Nathan: And, uh, we'll get back to you when we're done!

Haley: Nathan, oh my God! What are you doing here?
Nathan: I wanted to see you. I needed to see you, I --
Haley: I'm so glad you did, I miss you.
Nathan: Listen, I asked you to marry me because I want to spend my life with you. I still want that. I love you, Haley.
Haley: I love you too.
Nathan: So I came here for you and I'll be here for you no matter what. I'll go with you on the tour, I'll wait for you, whatever you want me to do. I'm not giving up on us. I'm not giving up on our marriage.
Haley: I don't know what to say. Oh, no-no, Chris and I aren't together, I promise you. It's never been about that.
Nathan: You're not wearing your ring.
Haley: I love you. Oh, I do, but I feel like maybe we rushed things a little bit maybe I -- I rushed things a little bit. We're so young and I wasn't ready for all this. You and the music and, now it's all happening at once and it's really hard. I don't know if I can be who you need me to be.
Nathan: All I want you to be is my wife. Is it too much to ask?
