Episode Quotes
Julian: (to Peyton) The good thing about a paper jam is that it forces you to open it up and figure out what went wrong in the first place.

Brooke: Really. I'm getting relationship advice from the girl who waited three weeks to tell her fiancé that he's making a movie with her ex-boyfriend.
Peyton: Three weeks and counting.

(Brooke answers a knock at the door)
Brooke: What?!
Owen: Wow. Where's nice Brooke?
Brooke: I killed her, and I ate her bleeding heart for breakfast. And I'm still hungry!
Owen: Right. Well if you see her, tell her I enjoyed cleaning up Sam-A-Palooza with her last night, and that I plan on bringing her a gift every day until she's ready to reconsider me.
Brooke: Every day?
Owen: Whether you like it or not.
Brooke: Gold. Godiva. Gucci. Gerber. My jewelry, chocolate, purse and flower preferences. I guess I'll be seeing you tomorrow.

(Lucas confronts Peyton about the photo he found)
Lucas: So you dated in L.A.?
Peyton: We were in love.

Peyton: Do you know what I love about you? The way you're always protecting everybody. But you don't have to protect Keith. I mean, regardless of what the scene becomes, I'm pretty sure he would rather you write his last moments than anybody else.
Lucas: I just wish I knew the truth.
