Episode Quotes
Jamie: You want to hold Chester?
Skills: You know you're my dawg right? But that's where I draw the line. I ain't never have a pet.
Jamie: Just pet him scaredy. He doesn't bite.

Lucas: Hey. Look, I hope you don't feel too slighted by the set-up.
Haley: To be honest, I kinda expected it from you guys, you being you and Lindsey. Your hearts are in the right place. You picked the right person to spend the rest of your life with, Luke.
Lucas: So did you.

(Chase kisses Peyton)
Peyton: Chase?
Chase: Three o'clock -- Lucas was looking.

Lucas: So, look Nate, about this party. I gotta tell you, I feel bad. Haley's inside.
Nathan: I figured.
Lucas: You did?
Nathan: Yeah. You always meddle Luke. That's what you do. You're just lucky I miss my wife.

Brooke: Awkward.
Owen: What?
Brooke: Nothing.
Owen: Okay, somebody want to tell me what's going on?
Chase: Hey bud. You remember that girl I used to tell you about, back when we first moved in together?
Owen: Yeah. The one you constantly talked about.
Chase: Not constantly, but yeah.
Owen: What? The fake virgin chick you lost your virgnity to?
Chase: Yeah.
Owen: What about her?
Chase: Do you remember her name?
(Owen realizes that it's Brooke)
Owen: Come on!

Lucas: (closing voiceover) Albert Camus once wrote, "Blessed are the hearts that can bend; they shall never be broken." But I wonder if there's no breaking then there's no healing, and if there's no healing then there's no learning. And if there's no learning then there's no struggle. But struggle is a part of life. So must all hearts be broken?"

Jamie: (to Brooke about Owen) Is he your boyfriend?
Brooke: You're the only boyfriend in my life.
Owen: (to Jamie) Hey. I heard I owe you one. You got me another chance with Brooke, "Whats under all the clothes, Brooke Davis?"
Jamie: So did you find out?
Brooke: And with that, boy time is over. (to Owen) Let's go.

(Haley calls Lucas)
Haley: Hi. I need to talk to you.
Lucas: Sure. Is everything okay?
Haley: No. You can't marry Lindsey.

Brooke: Rachel needed my help and you made me fire her.
Victoria: You earned my help.
Brooke: I earned it? A daughter is not supposed to have to earn her mother's help or her love. It is supposed to be unconditional.
Victoria: Whatever.
Brooke: You're fired.
Victoria: What did you just say?
Brooke: I said You're fired!
Victoria: You're going to fire me and risk our entire company?
Brooke: But it's not our company, it's my company. Remember?
Victoria: I am not an employee. I am your mother.
Brooke: I know. You're fired. You can go now.

Jamie: Are you going to be here in the morning, Daddy?
Nathan: I'm afraid not.
Jamie: Why? Mommy won't let you stay?
Nathan: No, It's not Mommy. Your mom is the best mom in the world, ok? Don't ever forget that. It's just, Daddy's on a time out right now.
Jamie: Are you ever coming home Daddy?
Nathan: I hope so.
Jamie: I hope so too.

Lindsey: Morning.
Lucas: Morning.
Lindsey: Poor Nathan.
Lucas: Yeah, I know. If I'd have known he'd be here for a week, I'd have cleared my mom's room.
Lindsey: Have they even seen each other this week?
Lucas: No. I don't think they've spoken.
Lindsey: Right. Last thing I want Haley worrying about is throwing a bachelorette party when her marriage is strung.
Lucas: Skills could do it. I mean, he is so excited for my bachelor party.
Lindsey: Oh. That worries me
