Episode Quotes
Nathan: I'm not good with being vulnerable, in fact this is probably the closest I've come to it, or the second closest.
Olivia: What was the first?
Nathan: When I was a junior in high school I took some stuff to help me with my game. Drugs. And it was a stupid thing to do. I ended up collapsing on the court and my dad was all about covering it up for the scouts. Anyway, when I left the hospital I went to see Haley because I needed to know if she could forgive me. I wanted to see if I still had the chance to be great in her eyes, and when she did, when she forgave me, that was the moment that everything changed for me. That was the moment that I fell in love with her, this girl who could see past all the mistakes I have made. Now, I guess maybe sometimes I screw up because I want to feel that again. I suppose that sounds pretty broken.

Peyton: I come in here and I sit in silence and hear the echoes of who we used to be. And so I wish for patience, and grace, and strength to just let him be happy. Mostly I pray for the strength to not make his life worse because of what I want. That's the toughest part, letting go, you know? That's the part of grace that really sucks.

(closing voiceover)
Peyton: Make a wish, place it in your heart, anything you want. Everything you want.
Lucas: Do you have it? Good. Now believe it can come true. You never know where the next miracle is gonna come from the next smile, the next wish come true.
Peyton: But if you believe it is right around the corner, and you open your heart and mind to the possibility of it, to the certainty of it --
Brooke: -- you just might get the thing your wishing for.
Nathan: The world is full of magic. You just have to believe in it. So make your wish. Do you have it?
Haley: Good. Now believe in it. With all your heart.

Max: Do you think about him -- Lucas?
Peyton: Everyday.

Lily: Where's mama?
Lucas: Hey sleepyhead. She'll be back soon. How did you sleep?
Lily: I had a dream about Daddy.
Lucas: Oh yeah?
Lily: Uh-huh, and you were there. And you were sad, but Daddy said everything is going to be okay.

Lindsey: I'll edit the book because I believe in it, and I believe in you, but we can't be together
Lucas: We will be. One of these days you're going to wake up, and you're going to feel that same me in your heart and you're going to realize how much I love you. And when ever that day is, I'll still be waiting for you, and you'll come home to me.

Peyton: My Mom used to sing to me. I don't think I've ever told anyone that before. It was like our little secret. But every night she'd come in and she'd tuck me in and she'd sing something, like lullabies or album rock stuff. And after she was gone I remember lying in bed for the first time and just feeling silence, you know. Then realizing for the rest of my life that it was gone: all her songs were gone, her voice and the way it used to soothe me, just all of it. So I guess I tried to find new songs to fill that quiet, but none of them ever really have. Now she's gone and Mia's gone... and Luke is gone. There's just silence. There's just silence.

Brooke: (to the adoption agent) I'm from a no-parent household. My dad cared more about his golf score than he did for me and my mom went heavy on scotch and Prada. And because of them I know exactly the parent I'm not going to be.

Dan: Well, I better go before I start looking pervy.
Jamie: What's pervy?
Dan: Nothing you need to know about. Go ahead and play.

Brooke: (to the adoption agent) Do you know what my mother said to me when I told her I wanted to start a company? She said "your chances are one in a million" and I said "Maybe I'm that one" and she said "you're not." And she was wrong. And whatever she thought she saw in me was wrong. Because I am one in a million and there is a child out there who has something so special inside of them but whose life is miserable because they think that nobody wants them. And I could be a great mother to that child, no matter their age or race or sex. I could help them find what makes them special. And if you can't see that, then you're wrong, just like my mother. Why don't you go ahead and write that down?

Nathan: It's quiet around here without Jamie.
Haley: Yeah, he's with Brooke. Baby steps.
Nathan: How you sleeping these days?
Haley: So-so. Jamie tosses around like a tasmanian devil.
Nathan: He should probably get back to his own bed soon, the separation thing. Or he could sleep in the spare bedroom with me. (pause) You know, sometimes I find your goodness staggering. I didn't get to tell you in the session, but your kindness is overwhelming, Haley. You saved my life. And if I haven't said it lately, you're sexy as hell.
Haley: Hey. I was thinking, um, not sleeping in this bed might not be too bad tonight if you wanted to try it with me. (Nathan walks over and kisses her; they lay down on the bed) We going to stop that sexy talk?
Nathan: The kind stuff or the sexy stuff? (takes her shirt off)
Haley: The sexy stuff.
Nathan: You have a serious ass Haley James.

(closing voiceover)
Peyton: Make a wish and place it in your heart. Anything you want. Everything you want.
Lucas: Do you have it? Good. Now believe it can come true. You never know where the next miracle is going to come from, the next smile. The next wish come true.
Peyton: But if you believe that it is right around the corner. And you open your heart and mind to the possibility of it. To the certainty of it.
Brooke: You just might get the thing you're wishing for.
Nathan: The world is full of magic. You just have to believe in it. So make your wish. Do you have it?
Haley: Good. Now believe in it. With all your heart.
