Episode Quotes
Haley: (about Mia) She's really nervous.
Lindsey: Can you blame her? It's like she's playing a private concert for satan's wife.

Victoria: (to Mia) The song's called "No Good"?
(Mia shakes her head yes)
Victoria: Appropriate.

Nathan: Did you tell Jamie my dad's in prison?
Skills: Maybe.
Nathan: Why?
Skills: Because he's in prison.
Nathan: What else did you tell him?
Skills: Not much. Just the truth.
Nathan: Like?
Skills: Like the man killed Tupac and Biggie, never date girls named Bevin, and Santa Claus is black.
Nathan: Did you say anything about the Easter Bunny?
Skills: A bunny that lay eggs? You know how many questions he would ask me about that?
Nathan: All right, just stay clear of the whole Dan thing until we figure out how we're gonna handle this, okay?
Skills: Fine by me. I won't say a word.

Peyton: Hey ice queen! Stop being such a bitch to your daughter!
Victoria: And did my daughter pay you to say that?
Peyton: No, I came up with that one for free.
Victoria: Well, I advise you keep your little under achieving mouth shut, because my relationship with my daughter is none of your business.
Peyton: No, it is when you tear her down and call her stupid. See, the truth is, you're actually worried she's smart. And that's a threat to you because when she figures out how to do the business side of this company, goodbye, Victoria.
Victoria: You're one to talk. Once I convince Brooke that you're just another leech sucking off the money teat, you will be broke and worthless.
Peyton: Stop tearing down your daughter. She might have to bite her tongue with you because you're her mother but you are not mine.
Victoria: No I am not. As a matter of fact, It's quite clear you never had a mother.
Peyton: Yeah, neither did Brooke.

Carrie: (to Lindsay) By the way, I completely agree with what you said about Peyton. Just because someone has history with a person doesn't mean that's who they should be with.

Nathan: (to Quentin) I have a team. Everyday I wake up and I put on the uniform: mistakes, regret, what could've been. And if I could go back and change all that just by reading a book, trust me, I'd read the book. If not, welcome to the team Quentin.

Lucas: I saw your lights on, which isn't that surprising, I mean I know how hard you work. You know, you haven't been yourself lately Peyton. I mean not the Peyton I remember.
Peyton: Well, I haven't been that Peyton for three years.
Lucas: What's going on?
Peyton: Okay. I went by my old house, there's a teenage girl living now. And she showed me my closet door, and you know what that said? Lucas and Peyton, True Love Always. Always Lucas, that's what we were supposed to have until you showed up in L.A. three years ago and ambushed me.
Lucas: If by ambushed you mean proposed to you?
Peyton: Oh, yeah, out of the blue! A proposal that was driven by some insecurity that I have never been able to understand!
Lucas: Insecurity? Right. Let me tell you how you get "always" Peyton. When a man asks you to marry him, you say yes. You don't say no and call him insecure!
Peyton: I never said no! I said that I loved you and that I did want to marry you some day and, oh God, Luke! I wanted you so bad, but you gave up on us.
Lucas: I, I gave up on us?
Peyton: Yes!
Lucas: By proposing I gave up on us?
Peyton: No! By not waiting you gave up on us, and you know that's the truth!
Lucas: That's great Peyton! (yelling) You wanna talk truth, let's tell the truth!
Peyton: Okay.
Lucas: You gave up on me! That's why you didn't say yes, you didn't think I could do it! You didn't think I could get my novel published, maybe you just didn't care, because it wasn't about you, or what you wanted.
Peyton: Well, if that's the truth, if I never cared, (picks up a copy of his book), then how come every time I see this stupid book I buy it, (picks up three more copies), every stupid damn time Luke. (Peyton throws the books at him) You said I was great! You said I could be great! You said we were destined to be together, you said it to the world, you said it to me and I wish you never had because you did not mean any of it!
Lucas: I'm gonna go.
Peyton: Okay, you know what? I'm going to pay rent. I don't know how I'm going to do it, but I'll figure it out, because whatever this is, I don't feel right about it.
Lucas: It's called me being nice to you.
Peyton: It needs to stop.

Episode Goofs
During the dinner scene, Nathan asks Haley how her day went, and she tells Nathan that she gave Quentin another chance, like he didn't know about it. However, in an earlier scene, Nathan brings Quentin the book he has to read so Nathan obviously knew about the arrangement between Haley and Quentin.
