Episode Quotes
(opening voiceover)
Carrie: They say we leave this world just the way we came into it: naked and alone.
Lucas: So if we do leave with nothing, what then is the measure of a life? Is it defined by the people we choose to love?
Nathan: Or is life simply measured by our accomplishments?
Brooke: And what if we fail, or have never truly loved? What then? Can we ever measure up?

(after she hits Carrie with the bottle)
Deb: Guess there's more than one crazy nanny in this town.

(to Lucas, about his engagement to Peyton)
Lindsey: You know the first time we met, right here, I told you I was pulling for the couple in the book.

Lucas: I never meant to hurt you. Not then, not now.
Lindsey: I know. The thing is I saw it coming all along. I just tried to wish it away. it wasn't fair to me or to you.

Peyton: (to Brooke) Wow ... who peed in your Cheerios?

Episode Goofs
When Nathan listens to the voicemail Haley leaves him, it's not the same wording as when she leaves it for him originally.
