Lucas: (opening voiceover) My name is Lucas Scott. Four years ago I graduated from high school with my friends and we all went our separate ways. Recently we've all come home. My ex-girlfriend, Peyton, is starting a new record label and she's also getting to know my girlfriend Lindsey ... sort of. Haley just hired a nanny for her son Jamie because her husband Nathan has been in a wheelchair but now seems to be recovering in more ways than one. Mouth started a job and other things with his new boss, Alice. Brooke opened a local store for her fashion line but she also found that sometimes your problems follow you home. Like I said, we're all home now, maybe hoping that the things we were looking for were here in Tree Hill all along.
Lucas: (closing voiceover) Much as some of us fight it, our parents have a mystical hold over us, the power to affect our thoughts and emotions the way only they can. It's a bond that changes over time, but doesn't diminish, even if they're half a world away, or in another world entirely. It's a power we never fully understand. We're left only to wonder that when our time comes, what kind of hold will we have on our children?
Peyton: Hi Mrs. Davis. I just want to tell you I think it's really great you're supporting Brooke's decision to stay. I know it means so much to her.
Victoria: Of course I support my daughter. But let's be clear -- the only reason that Brooke returned to this backwater town is because her loser friend couldn't cut it in Los Angeles. That's why I'm here, to make sure that my daughter is not completely exploited by her parasitic so called friend. So you get your little act together before you ruin her life too.
Victoria: Good God. What is that?
Brooke: That's my assistant Millicent.
Victoria: Tell me again why you have an assistant who dresses like a Slavic bag lady.
(Peyton is talking to the bartender; Lucas comes over)
Lucas: Hey, ready to go?
Peyton: Hey, umm actually I think Ii'm going to stay so, goodnight.
(whispers in her ear)
Lucas: He is not good enough for you.
(Lucas leaves; Peyton follows him outside)
Peyton: Hey, don't do that!
Lucas: Do what?
Peyton: He's not good enough for you? I don't want you saying things like that to me, Lucas. That's not fair to me, it's not fair to Lindsey either!
Brooke: The dress is on me.
Haley: No, I can't let you do that.
Brooke: I can do anything I want. It's my party. Think of it as a present for taking such good care of my Godson. Sorry I don't have anything for you Nate.
Nathan: Oh, that's a present for me too.
Victoria: (to Brooke) Beautiful things die in Tree Hill. Why do you think we left?
Lucas: I'm building a team. You play your part and do as I say or you are gone. Just so we're clear.
Quentin: Look, we both know I'm the best shooting guard in the state. So why don't we just cut the crap, huh? I'm not playing no zone defense. Matter of fact, I might not play no defense at all. And on offense, I need my minutes. So I'm play when I want and I'm sit when I want. And that weak-ass point guard? Find somebody that's gonna feed me the ball, man. You do that, you can stand on the sideline, hold your little clipboard, and watch me work. And when we win, I might even let you take the credit. Oh, you can call me "Q" coach. I like you man, but, uh, that's how it's gonna go. Just so we're clear.
