Episode Quotes
Dan: I'm getting a heart.
Lucas: It's about time.

Haley: What's the first thing I taught you about writing?
Sam: Tell the truth.

Haley: Just try and remember it's too early for you to start playing the game. Well, it's too early for me to start playing the game. Stand up for what you believe in. The truth matters, so tell it. No matter what.

(to Nathan and Lucas)
Dan: You're my sons. And I failed you. I'm sorry for that. For so many other things. But I'm proud that each of you became the kind of men I could never be. You're good men, and you're good brothers. Don't let the world change that.

Lucas: A dog ate his heart.
Nathan: You're kidding me.
Lucas: I'm standing right there and this stoner guy's dog trips the paramedic and gobbles up his heart.
Nathan: You're serious?
Lucas: I'm not joking.
Nathan: Wow.
Lucas: Yeah.
Nathan: So I guess this means he's gonna die.
