Brooke: Where the hell are we?
Haley: Miles from normal.
Karen: What does this dress say to you?
Lucas: Uh, beware of crazy ladies that talk to dresses.
Mouth: I’m Mouth McFadden and sitting in with at tonight’s away game is Haley James. Haley, how do you see tonight’s match up?
Haley: I’d rather not be associated with your lunacy, Mouth.
Brooke: Did you see that?
Brooke: Nathan just gave her the nod.
Peyton: What nod?
Brooke: The "let’s hook up after the game" nod. Wanna know what I think? I think Nathan likes Tutor Girl. But I think Tutor Girl likes Lucas. And I know I like Lucas. And I don't know who the hell you like anymore. This is all turning into one big love (pause) rectangle plus one ... whatever that is.
Nathan: Why do you want my life so bad anyway, man?
Lucas: Dude, don’t flatter yourself, all right? You’re about the last person I want to trade places with.
Nathan: Oh yeah? Well, all I know is you came out nowhere and started grabbing everything you could from me, my game, my girl ...
Lucas: What about you, huh? I bet your grades sucked before you met me, but I didn’t see you going to Haley for help then!
Nathan: Who said what me and Haley have is about grades?
Brooke: We should totally hang out more! What is your name?
Haley: (slowly) Haley.
Brooke: Yeah, I don’t like that name. Let’s call you … Brooke.
(not wearing clothing)
Nathan: Dude, this is total crap! These guys are morons, not killers. I bet it’s not even a real gun.
Lucas: Let's just play the game, get our clothes, and get home, okay? Ah, we need two bottles of spring feminine cleansers.
Nathan: Oh, great, a pair of douche bags!
Lucas: A case of beer and we’re out of here.
Nathan: What? How are we going to pull that off?
Lucas: Would you card us? I didn't think so!
Keith: Oh, what do you know? We finally got the center aisle this year. Guy must’ve thought I said Dan Scott.
Karen: No, Dan’s table has one spot for Dan and five for his ego.
The Things: Oh yeah, yeah baby!
Lucas: (sarcastically) Yeah, yeah, right! All right! Yahoo! (serious) Yeah, enough’s enough. Give us our clothes.
Lucas: So this Haley thing. You know, for some reason she feels like you’re not full of crap. Don’t take advantage of that.
Nathan: I’m not going to.
Lucas: I know you’re not. Because if you do, you’re going to live to regret it.
Nathan: Bring it on. Hey, listen. Look man, you didn’t have to get in that car when those guys grabbed me. Especially after you warned me not to.
Lucas: Right, whatever. You know the way I see it, I mean, if they would’ve taken you out, who the hell else am I gonna have to fight with, right?
Nathan: Same person I have.
Lucas: (closing voiceover) This happens sometimes in moments settled. And hovered and remained for much more than a moment. And sounds stopped. And movements stopped. For much, much more than a moment. And then the moment was gone.
Episode Title: Every Night Is Another Story
"Every Night Is Another Story" is a song by The Early November.
Lucas: As happens sometimes a moment settled and hovered and remained for much more than a moment. And sound stopped and movement stopped for much, much more than a moment. And then the moment was gone.
