Lucas' novel receives interest from a suprising person, as does Mouth as he meets his new intern. Jamie begins to develop a crush on Sam and her rebellious ways, while someone becomes enamored with Brooke. Meanwhile, Haley and Nathan discuss his return to baskeball as his comeback begins to look more like a reality.
Sam: Hey, you're short.
Jamie: I'm five. What's your excuse?
Nathan: What does Peyton think of the movie?
Lucas: What do you mean?
Nathan: Well, I mean, she's basically half the book. How does she feel about it?
Lucas: Well, she says she's good with it either way.
Nathan: What about Brooke?
Nathan: Dude, Brooke's the other half!
(to Owen at the Slam Ball game)
Brooke: Hey 99, thought you were going to protect 23. And why don't you get over your whole fear of having children while you're at it.
Nathan: Well, she's had a tough run lately, but on the list of a hundred things you've screwed up in your life, I'd say losing Brooke Davis is one through to ninety-nine.
Owen: What's the other one?
Nathan: That hair cut ... or the drug addiction. One of the two.
