Episode Quotes
Peyton: You know that's like three guys we've shared, right?
Brooke: Lucas, Julian ...
Peyton: Um, sex tape?!
Brooke: Eww, sex tape! I forgot about that. Kind of wish that you had too.

Brooke: What are you smiling about?
Julian: I, I can't help it, that was amazing. No wonder you were so popular in high school.
Brooke: Excuse me. Sex did not make me popular. I made it popular.

Julian: That's a breakdown of the Brooke Davis I'm looking for.
Brooke: Gorgeous brunette with an amazing energy and smile. Funny. Intelligent. Kind-hearted. Strong-headed. Simple. Complicated. Motherly. Childish. Tough. Sensitive. Beautiful. Way cooler than she was in high school.
Julian: That girl has been nearly impossible to find but worth every second of the wait.

Julian: (looking at his yearbook) Does that look like Mr. Popular to you? I know you're not the person you were in high school cause I'm not either and I'm glad because that kid would have never stood a chance with you.
Brooke: Were you really a mathlete?
Julian: I was the mathlete. But I'm not anymore, and I don't want high school Brooke. I'm sorry the breakdown hurt your feelings. It was meant to describe who the character was before anyone got to know the real person.

Lucas: Why are you so good to me?
Peyton: I don't know, maybe because I am (quoting the script) "a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside a bitch."
Dixon: What woman isn't?

Peyton: Hi, I'm here to read for the part of Peyton Sawyer. "First of all, you don't know me. Second of all, you don't know me. God, why are guys such jerks?"
(Lucas claps)
Dixon: Too old, but she would make a great Deb.
Lucas: Um, she's the real Peyton.

Lucas: Why are you so good to me?
Peyton: I don't know, maybe because I am (quoting the script) "a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside a bitch."

Peyton tells Lucas the same line in "Crash Into You."

Peyton: Hi, I'm here to read for the part of Peyton Sawyer. "First of all, you don't know me. Second of all, you don't know me. God, why are guys such jerks?"

The line Peyton reads is from the "Pilot" when Peyton and Lucas are talking as he tows her car.

Peyton: You know that's like three guys we've shared, right?
Brooke: Lucas, Julian ...
Peyton: Um, sex tape?!
Brooke: Eww, sex tape! I forgot about that. Kind of wish that you had too.

A sex tape featuring Nathan and Brooke surfaced in "Sad Songs for Dirty Lovers."

Missy being naked in the back of Brooke's car is a reference to "Are You True?" in which Brooke is in the back of Lucas' car naked after he makes the winning shot at a basketball game. In "A Mulititude of Casualties," Rachel does the same thing to Lucas.
