Meanwhile, Haley debates recording a new album; Nathan pushes himself in order to get back to into shape; and Lucas reveals a shocking truth to Peyton.
Skills: You know what heals a broken heart more than anything?
Skills: Bacon. Thank God for Millicent.
Peyton: Haley, don't do it! You've got too much to live for. Dude, Millicent calls, says you're depressed looking, and headed to the roof. I get all freak out. What's going on, foxy?
Haley: I found my five year old son walking alone on the street today. You know why? I lied to him. I'm worried I'm wasting your time with this record, Peyton.
Peyton: Oh Haley, your record's gonna be great.
Haley: Well I hope so, but what about after that? Mia said that her life is so nomadic that she can't even imagine having a family, let alone a serious relationship. I have a husband and a son who need me and a classroom full of students.
Peyton: Okay, Haley? It's not wrong for you to want what you want. And you're not Mia.
(while Nathan is jogging)
Jamie: How ya feeling Dad?
Nathan: I'm holding up.
Jamie: Oh. Well, it kind of feels like we slowed down.
Brooke: How long's it been?
Peyton: About an hour.
Brooke: You said that last time I asked.
Peyton: Well, hon, that was thirty seconds ago.
Lucas: Peyton, I hate you. I wish you'd never came back. You ruined my life.
Lucas: Most of the time, love doesn't really need words.
Dr. Copeland: It's Ethan, by the way... my first name.
Brooke: Thank you, Ethan.
Dr. Copeland: You're welcome, Brooke.
Brooke: I never told her I love her. I just... I never said it.
Lucas: I'm sure when Angie's in your arms she knows it.
Episode Title: Hate is Safer Than Love
"Hate is Safer Than Love" is the title of a song by Ben Godwin.
The ringtone that Peyton has on her cell phone is "These Problems Matter," a song from Family Guy that makes fun of One Tree Hill and other teen-centered dramas.
Mia: So am I allowed to ask what's going on with you and Lucas? Or is that like saying Voldemort?
In the Harry Potter series of films, no one refers to Voldemort by his real name.
