Episode Quotes
Haley: (reading Nathan's prediction) Haley and I will be together again by graduation. Did you really believe that?
Nathan: I was in a pretty dark place back then, but I never stopped believing in us.

Brooke: (to Peyton) I guess now it's hoes over psychos.

Rachel: Quit talking about Shelly.
Mouth: Yeah, I know. I'm boring you.
Rachel: No, you're making me jealous.

Brooke: I'll be back in time for my coronation.
Mouth: Aren't they still voting for Prom queen?
Brooke: Yeah, but it's really just a formality.

Haley: This is the weirdest prom ever! No Peyton, no Brooke, no Lucas, no Mouth.
Nathan: No Rachel.
Haley: Good prom.

Haley: You know after everything we've been through in the past year your mom taking us to prom feels pretty good.
Nathan: Kinda like we're kids again.
Haley: Yeah, like you know, maybe tonight we don't have to be married and pregnant. We can just be teenagers.
Nathan: Well, in that case, what's your curfew?

Peyton: (to Brooke) All this time you said I was a backstabbing bitch. You had no idea how right you were!
(starts towards Brooke, but turns around and stabs Psycho Derek in the shoulder)
Brooke: (Peyton unties Brooke) God, did you have to hit me so hard?
Peyton: I'm so sorry! I'm so sorry!

(Psycho Derek puts a knife to Brooke's throat)
Peyton: Derek! Hey, hey, look at me. If you really, really love me, let me do it. This is my chance for revenge. You more than anybody should know that. Look you were right about me, okay! Hey! You were right. We are so much alike. I have the same feelings as you do, I have all the same desires. It's true. Hey, I just couldn't admit it before. I'm going to prove it to you now, just untie me. Come on, Derek. You've got the knife and I'm half your size.

Episode Goofs
Brooke assumes Peyton is still home because her curling iron is on. However, Peyton was leaving for Prom when she was attacked, so she should have shut her curling iron off before leaving.

Nathan: I was in a pretty dark place back then, but I never stopped believing in us.

In "Champagne For My Real Friends, Real Pain For My Sham Friends", Haley takes Nathan to the roof of the cafe to show him her predictions for their senior year. Instead of reading them, Nathan writes is own, and what he wrote is revealed in this episode.

Peyton's Voicemail: You've reached Peyton Sawyer, congratulations.

In "What Is And What Should Never Be", Haley's voicemail says the same thing, except with her name instead of Peyton's.

Psycho Derek mentions to Peyton that even being thrown out of her window won't stop him from being with her. Psycho Derek was thrown out of Peyton's second-story window during "I Love You But I've Chosen The Darkness".

The flashbacks to the school shooting were from the episode "With Tired Eyes, Tired Minds, Tired Souls, We Slept".
