"4:30 am (Apparently They Were Traveling Abroad" [7.01]
Dan:(opening voiceover) I sat there in the dark ..alone, broken. On the eve of my son's first game in the NBA, I sat alone on a playground basketball court and waited for death. I'd been given only days to live. That was 14 months ago.
Nathan: (to Quinn) He thinks you're hot.
Quinn: I am hot.
Quinn:(to Clay) Listen the Bobcats have no depth in the backcourt so get this guy paid, Jerry Maguire
Mouth: (naked) You're mad because I want you to move out. But it's only because I'm trying to step things up with Millie. It's not like I don't still consider you a great friend. It's not like I don't want to hang with you. You're my friend. I love you.
Skills: (naked) I love you, too.
Mille: Okay. Good to know the stereotype's not true.
Julian: The beach is becoming our spot.
Brooke: I don't think you can call it a spot if it's every other month.
Julian: I guess that's fair.
Brooke: No, I'm sorry. Do you remember how it was in the beginning? Even when we were apart, we'd talk every night, and my heart raced with every text, and every time my phone rang I hoped it would be you.
Julian: I still do that with you.
Brooke: Peyton used to say 'People always leave'. Who knew she was actually talking about her stupid ass. I'm just lonely.
Julian: We're here now.
Brooke: I know. And it's amazing...And it's what I wished for.
Julian: Wanna know what I wish for?
Julian: Skinny dipping.
Brooke: You did not!
Julian: Uh-huh I did. You coming or what?
Brooke: That's what she said.
Brooke: So how's the movie coming?
Julian: Well, we ran into a couple issues with work visas and permits..
Julian: Meaning it's going to be more like ten months; not eight.
Brooke: You're killing me.
Julian: I know, but I do have some good news. I decided not to produce the movie.
Brooke: Why? That was an important movie.
Julian: No, it was a lucrative movie, not an important one. I want to make important movies. Plus there’s this girl that I’m in love with and I couldn’t stand to be away from her another day.
Brooke: I'm scared. What if we ruin it?
Julian: What are you talking about?
Brooke: The feeling that I get when I see you after a month. The way my heart aches when I smell your skin. I don't want it to go away.
Julian: It won't. We won't let it.
Jamie: Did you ever forgive him?
Nathan: I wish I could say yes, son. But I'm not sure I ever did.
Jamie: Well, I think you should.
Nathan: Well, you're a good man, Jamie Scott. Good night, son.
Jamie: Hey, Dad? I think you're good enough to forgive him. You're Nathan Scott.
Dan:(ending voiceover) Forgiveness is never easy. Bitterness is easy. Hatred is easy. But forgiveness, that's a tough one. Sometimes, people say things they don't mean or do things they can't take back. Sometimes we do things we can't take back. So we feed ourselves to starve the pain.
Alex: I think it’s so great that you make designer clothes for plus size girls. I never knew it was based on you, but I think that’s so sweet.
Brooke: Uh, no. I’m normal sized.
Alex: I know, but I have the best diet for you! You’re so going to lose that weight. I know there were more. What else?
Paul: Brooke. You wanted to speak with me?
Brooke: You know, my whole life, I wanted to get my mother to be proud of me. And then one night, Julian threatened to exile her from our lives, and I would do the same to you. I'm just not sure it would matter.
Paul: You're upset.
Brooke: I have this poster hanging in my living room, Paul. Of course I'm upset. And the only reason that it's hanging there is because you took him to see that movie, and for one day that boy felt close to his father. He felt loved and appreciated. And the sad part is that there was only one of those days. Because in my book, the day that he didn't feel that way should be the unique one. Fix it.
Miranda: Why did Peyton start this label, anyway? You said it was personal.
Haley: She thought that major labels were soulless.
Miranda: We are. Don't forget it.
Brooke: I love you. You know that? I love who you are. I don't know how you got there, but I'm glad you did.
Julian: I'm glad I did, too, 'cause you're here with me.
Alex: I like to leave it on…I like the sound of the rain.
Haley: I get it Nathan, you got married in high school,and had a son at graduation, and you didn't have time to go out and party with your friends and drunken sluts with perfect teeth.
Producer of Dan’s Show: Rachel, should we cut it?
Producer: But he just called him a murderer!
Rachel: So? He is one.
Skills: Mouth knows I’m afraid of creatures. That’s why I know he did this. You think you can catch it?
Jamie: We can catch it.
Skills: No, you can catch it.
Nathan: If she does file the paternity suit, then do what you have to do.
Mouth: I hope it doesn’t come to that.
Nathan: Yeah, me too.
Alex: He has big hands…probably has a big thingy.
Millie: Yeah you understand that he’s Brooke’s serious boyfriend?
Alex: She’s dating a PA?
Millie: He’s not a PA. He’s a producer.
Alex: A producer? Like a film producer?
Millie: I mean a PA. He’s a PA.
Alex: No, he’s a producer! Julian. Julian Baker.
Haley: You wanna pay her? You know full well this lying whore didn't sleep with Nathan and you wanna pay her two hundred thousand dollars?
Clay: Wow I don't want to. I just simply suggested it and said it was an option.
Haley: It's not an option Clay, and while we are suggesting things, let me suggest that you are a huge reason why it's happening right now. You love it, the parties, the women and you love having Nathan alongside more than anything else.
Clay: That's not fair.
Haley: No? The picture... the one of that woman draped all over my husband. What party was that at Clay? Who threw that party? I'm not saying you don't love him 'cause I know you do but you love having him at your side more than anything else. You could have protected him from this..
Clay: How Haley? He is a grown man....
Haley: So are you... Just start acting like it...
Clay: I’m sorry. Everything you said was true. I love Nate and you and Jamie, and I should’ve done better by all of you but I'm sorry.
Haley: We’re not paying her.
Clay: And if that's what you decide then of course we are not. But it's not my dream, and it's not your dreams. In part it is but it's Nathan dream. He's worked so hard for it and he deserves it and I just wanna protect him. I mean for him and for you.
Haley: This isn't fair..
Clay: I know it's not, but, if paying that woman with the money he makes out of one commercial, protects Jamie from all of this, if he keeps his name safe and his crew safe and you both finally got what you've been chasing forever I think it's something we should consider...
Dan: I do know one thing: if people saw my life, they’d feel a lot better about theirs.
Brooke: She’d have to sign a confidentiality agreement, it would never come out.
Haley: Yeah, but who’s to say she won’t? She’s such a trustworthy individual.
Clay: This is the amount we’re willing to pay you.
Renee: It’s empty.
Clay: Yeah, it’s empty because you’re a lying bitch and we’re not paying you a dime. Go to Hell.
Brooke: Hi. This hot body of yours has just inspired me to something that I have never done before.
Julian: Oh yeah?
Brooke: Yeah. And it's going to take a lot of hard work, and it's going to take a long, long time.And I'm going to need you to start by taking your pants off.
Julian: That sounds amazing. But Alex is coming over to work.
Brooke: You two were up half the night!
Julian: It's all business, Brooke. I don't know, she seems to have really come around.
Brooke: I don't buy it. Once a ho-bag, always a ho-bag.
Julian: Now as I recall, you...
Brooke: You might want to consider what you are about to say very carefully. Now come kiss me 'till ho-bag shows up.
Nathan: I’m a professional basketball player; girls get a hold of my email and my cell phone number all the time. And when they contact me I call them back to tell them stop, because I’m happily married to a woman who loves and trusts me. But I guess that was a lie, because you don’t trust me, do you?
Mouth: I would offer to spot you but I max out at like 180…ish.
Nathan: You know, I don't believe in killing the messenger Mouth, but uh, every time I've seen you lately it's been bad news.
Mouth: They're running a story at 6 that says you're losing your endorsements. Is it true?
Mouth: I’m sorry Nate.
Nathan: Yeah, me too. I heard about your demotion. How long are they going to keep you locked up in the basement?
Mouth: The truth? Until I do a story on you.
Nathan: Then do the story, Mouth.
Nathan: I’m serious. Mouth, you've already done far more than I could ever ask. Take care of your career.
Brooke:(about Alex) No I’m not okay. Ho-bag got naked in front of Julian!
Brooke: Alex ‘my butt is the size of a cumquat’ Dupree, my model. She’s so manipulative and materialistic and self-serving, and naked and…
Mouth: Nathan Scott is a Tree Hill local who overcame injury and adversity to achieve his dream, a dream to play professional basketball. But lately Nathan’s career has taken a backseat to allegations of an affair that led to the pregnancy of a fan. In my opinion, continuing to report on these allegations without any further evidence of their validity is a reckless attempt on the part of this network to boost ratings. I’m not saying athletes are above the law, but I think it’s up to science to determine the validity of these claims, not the evening news. To date there’s been no new evidence that suggests that Nathan Scott is guilty of these allegations. And yet he looks guiltier the more that we report on him. For my part I got into sports news because I think reporting on athletes inspires people to be exceptional. And while I’ve never been an exceptional athlete I can strive to be exceptional in my own way: by refusing to bow to pressure, by refusing to stoop to a level that’s beneath me, just like Nathan Scott has refused to. I believe in Nathan Scott, but I also believe in my viewers. I believe you don’t want any part in dragging him through the mud. So if you want sports news and not gossip, turn the channel, let my boss know that news isn’t just about ratings. It’s about people, and integrity, but mostly it’s about truth and that still means something. I’m Marvin McFadden and this is sports. Or at least it used to be.
Nathan: A retraction at this point won’t change anyone’s opinion.
Haley: It might.
Nathan: They’ll all just assume you paid her off. We will have, which will just make me look even more guilty. You should know this Haley, which makes me think the only reason you haven’t left to pay her off is that you’re starting to believe she might be telling the truth. Haley, if I’m guilty of this, not only am I the kind of guy that would cheat on you, I’m the kind of guy that would father a child then turn his back. I’m Dan Scott. If you think I’m capable of that you do what you have to do, but I can guarantee you if you’ve lost faith in me, all the money in the world isn’t going to fix it.
Haley: I didn’t do it. I couldn’t.
Nathan: That’s what sets you apart from her. It’s one of the thousand reasons why I could never cheat on you.
Haley: I don’t want to see you lose your dream.
Nathan: Lose her? She’s right here. I’m never letting go of her.
Sara: Oh, oh, oh, oh so let's run down the list. There's blondie from the body wash commercial.
Clay: She has a name you know, it's Kylie.
Sara: Of course it is. There's the actress who can be in your bed in 20 minutes.. make it 30 and there's this one, Nathan's sister-in-law. It's a little early for a beer isn't it? You know what I want? Grape Kool-Aid.
Clay: Stop it.
Sara: It's okay if you like her.
Clay: No.. it's not.
Sara: Why not?
Clay: Because she's somebody's wife.
Sara: So.. I was your wife.
Clay: Yeah.. but you left me.
Sara: Things change Clay. She's beautiful and you like her.
Clay: She's not you. Look I have to watch Nathan's and my career possibly end on this nightmare TV show. You can go if you want.
Sara: Oh don't be silly babe, I'm not going anywhere.
Renee: You didn’t tell me that the show was live.
Dan: It’s better this way; better audience, bigger ratings. After today everyone will know your story.
Renee: I’m nervous.
Dan: Don’t be, just speak from the heart and don’t forget to smile.
Renee: Mr. Scott? What happened between you and Nathan?
Dan: I murdered his uncle among other things. I’ll see you out there.
Haley: Nathan? Hey it’s gonna start soon.
Nathan: It’s been a good life huh?
Haley: Yeah. It’s been a wonderful life. You know, when this show is over it’s still gonna be a wonderful life because I love you and your son loves you and nothing that happens in the next hour is gonna change that.
Nathan: God, I needed to hear you say that.
Haley: Good. I really needed to say it.
Nathan: Do you believe this? Do you realize how ridiculous this is? The guy shot his brother at point blank range and now he has a hit TV show. He’s rolling out some rigged up lie detector machine and I have to sit 3000 miles away and just take it.
Haley: Screw him. I mean it. Let’s not even watch the rest of the show. It’s a nice day. It’s a nice life.
Nathan: How can you be so strong?
Clay: We were really hammered that night. It was the longest roadtrip of the year and I...
Sara: You were lonely.
Clay: I'm always lonely.
Sara: On the count of 2.
[Flashback - Clay & Sara meet for the first time before jumping the bridge]
Clay: That's a long way down.
Sara: Thanks, that really helps me right now.
Clay:(laughs) Sorry, I-I'm just not a huge fan of heights yeah. Beer bongs I can do, I think their a beautiful college tradition er.. streaking through the quad, another one.
Sara: I could do that.
Clay: Yeah? Man did I pick the wrong school. (Sara laughs) I'm Clay.
Sara: Hi, I'm Sara.
Clay: How about we do this together? On the count of 2.
Sara: Wait... on the count of 2? Nobody goes on the count of 2.
Clay: Yeah I know, it'll be our thing, something to tell the grandkids about.
Sara: Oh, oh.. well I'm going to tell them about streaking on the quad.
Clay: Yeah nobody wants to hear from their grandparents.
Clay: Actually I take that back, everyone would love hearing that from their grandparents.
Sara:(Sara laughs again)
Clay: Atta girl, you ready? You okay? (Sara nods). 1... 2...
(they both jump)
Clay: See.. how badass were you?
Sara:(kisses Clay) Tell that to the grandkids (laughs and swims away).
Dan: :[on tv show] They say that truth is the best indication against slander. So what’s the truth? Is she lying? Or am I about to become a grandfather again?[...] Believe nothing. Just because a wise man said it, or you read it in a book…words of divine order, or because your mother told you…it doesn’t make it true. Believe only what you yourself can test and judge to be true.[...] Falling in love is the easiest thing you’re ever gonna do. It’s the most exciting thing, the most powerful thing. That’s why falling out of love hurts like hell, but falling in love…there’s nothing better. It’s the best it ever gets. [...] A lifetime of love. Now there’s a miracle. Relationships aren’t always easy. I should know. I’m on my second marriage. How many of you are divorced? Divorce doesn’t just happen. And relationships don’t just end in an instant. [...] We all want to be loved…to be happy. So why aren’t we? Because we’ve become experts at sabotaging our own happiness. Feeling like victims, when in fact it’s the choices we make, the bad habits, the vices, the inability to show love and compassion. These are the things that tear us down. We’re not victims. We’re assassins when it comes to love and happiness.[...] Ah, we applaud the sentiment, but we don’t change. Why? Because we want what we want. So we do it, we say it, we try it and we victimize ourselves.[...] It’s a question of character. It’s really about who has better character. Is it Renee or Nathan?
Sara: What did you do to your ring anyways? (Clay looks at his hands) Your wedding band, where is it?
Clay: I don't know.
Sara: You don't know or you don't want to remember?
[Flashback - Clay askes Sara for advice on his outfit for his interview]
Clay: Hey Sara, what do you think?
Sara: I think you look like a boy playing dress up.
Clay:(sighs) C'mon, this is my shot I-I get in the mail room, I become the assistant, they make me junior agent and I'm in..
Sara: You're in.
Sara: Person interviewing you, it's a woman right?
Sara: Jeans and a buttoned-up shirt and go heavy on the boyish grin.
Clay: You sure?
Sara: Hey, it got you me didn't it? (Clay laughs and kisses Sara)
Clay: I just don't think it'll be too casual.
Sara: (grabs a wedding ring from the drawer) Here, (puts ring on Clay's finger) married says mature, stable and dependable. Everything they want to see in a future agent.
Clay:(confused) Only I'm not married?
Sara: Then marry me you knucklehead.
Clay: Yes.. (Sara smiling and laughing happily) Yes..
Sara: Well there's that boyish grin (kisses Clay, both are grinning and smiling).
Dan: Sometimes we fall short of the people we were meant to be. Sometimes people do things they’re ashamed of. And usually after the guilt sets in, we make things worse. My son Nathan Scott is a good man, but sometimes people do funny things in the face of pressure and desperation, and the truth, well, the truth is an absolute. And the truth can set you free. My name is Dan Scott (True). I love my wife Rachel (True). My son Nathan loves me (True). I’m president of the United States (True). I’m Santa Claus (True). I didn’t kill my brother (True). Life is funny isn’t it? Sometimes bad things happen to good people and it isn’t fair.
[Flashback - Clay practicing his speech on convincing the players to sign him on Sara]
Sara: Can I give you my two cents?
Sara: This is all about that wide receiver, right?
Sara: I think... you can do better.
Clay: Babe, this guy’s a big deal. He could change everything for me.
Sara: You said it yourself. He’s a bad guy.
Clay: And if I only represent good guys I may have no clients at all.
Sara: No, I don’t believe that. And I don’t think you do either.
Clay: The guy is great Sara.
Sara: He’s not great. He’s just a great player. And the man I love knows the difference. That’s what’s going to make you a great agent. You’ll find players that you can believe in and clients that become friends. You’ll find someone that has integrity, and character and heart. And that will change everything for you. And that’s the man I fell in love with.(Clay kisses Sara)
Haley: I’m so sorry you had to go through this.
Nathan: I shouldn’t have been drunk at that party Haley.
Haley: You’re still young. We both are. I think we just forget that sometimes.
Sara: What are you listening to?
Clay: You know... I never changed it.
Clay: I can't.
Sara: For me?
Clay:(Clay turns on record player)
[Flashback - Sara's tragic death]
(Music is playing from the record player)
Sara:(walks out from the room) I love this song.
Clay: You look beautful.
Sara: Why thank you, handsome. Dance with me?
(Clay and Sara dance and kiss)
Sara: You know what I want? (teasing Clay)
Clay: What? (thinking it was something else)
Sara: Grape Kool-Aid. (laughs)
Clay: You know what I hate? I hate these pens, it's either way too much fluid or not nearly enough but it's never the right amount and it costs a fortune.
(Sara holds her stomach and looks at Clay with a scared face)
Clay: What are you looking at you goof?
(Sara suddenly collapses on the floor)
Clay: Hey, Sara.. hey (Clay runs to Sara and tries to wake her up)
(Paramedics arrive and try to revive Sara, but it's too late)
(Clay is shocked as ever, not knowing what has just happened or what caused this)
(The record player stops and the paramedics carry Sara away)
Clay: Sometimes I can’t see you anymore. I forget things about you, and I’m afraid that I’m losing us... like the way you smelled, and uh the sound of your voice, and the way you felt uh in my arms and um...
Sara: If you let someone in... you’ll erase me. You won't.
Clay: I can’t. (knocking on Clay's front door)
Sara: Open the door, Clay... (Clay looks at the door not wanting to go) Clay, it’s okay. On the count of 2.
(Clay walks up to his door)
Sara: 1.. (Clay turns the door knob) 2.. (Clay opens the door and it's Quinn)
Quinn: Hey. (Clay turns around and Sara is gone)
Clay: It’s not fair. We were supposed to have more time.
Sara: And you still do. I don’t want you to be alone honey. You like her, Quinn. Why’d you send her away?
Clay: I don’t want to lose us.
Sara: Oh you can’t erase who we were or what we had. No one can. We burned so bright together. You won’t lose that.
Clay: I loved you so much Sara.
Sara: You were perfect with me. And you always will be. But now it’s time to let go. It’s okay honey. (Sara holds up her hand wearing Clay's ring) I love you.
(Flashback to Sara's funeral. Clay is crying at her coffin. He places his wedding ring on her finger and cries)
Julian: You okay?
Brooke: No. I need to know that you feel the same way that I do. That you can...see yourself doing this with me forever. Because if not, what am I doing? What... what are we doing? What.. who are we?
Julian: Hey. look at me. We're us, Brooke. You're the girl I love with all my heart. And I'm the boy who's gonna be with you forever. We don't have to rush into anything. Forever is a very long time.
Nathan(to Haley): I love you so much, my beautiful wife.
Nathan:(to Dan ): Well, when you and Deb are tired of my high-school class,I'm sure I could rummage through some of my old middle-school friends for you.
Jamie: Nice to meet you, Grandma Rachell.
Rachel: I remember when you were a rumor in 3rd period.
Haley(about Dan): He is the healthiest looking dying man I’ve ever seen.
Nathan: I guess evil does a body good
“You Are a Runner and I Am My Father’s Son” [7.10]
Victoria: It’s for you. It’s Millicent’s agent.
Brooke: Millicent has an agent?
Victoria: Yeah, so do those Spencer and Heidi people. Go figure.
Dan(narrating): Who you are is who you are. We’re liars. We’re thieves. We’re addicts. We take our happiness for granted until we hurt ourselves or someone else. We hold grudges. And when faced with our mistakes, we reinvent the past. We reinvent ourselves. At least we try. We’re prideful, and we’re lustful, and we’re incredibly flawed. And eventually, our flaws catch up to us.
Brooke: How'd you sleep?
Julian: Not good.
Julian: I'm sorry. I thought alex was in trouble, and i reacted.
Brooke: She okay?
Julian: She's fine.
Brooke: Imagine that.
Julian: Brooke, you would have done the same thing if she would have called you.
Brooke: yeah, but she didn't call me. she called her boyfriend i mean, my boyfriend.
Julian: Look, i know we were supposed to have a night together, but we can do that tonight. Or any night, okay? don't get upset.
Brooke: I'm not upset about that.
Julian: Yes, you are.
Brooke: not about that
Julian: Well, what else is there?
Brooke: I thought i was pregnant.
Brooke: I'm not. so you're good.
Julian: i would have been good if you were. if we were.
Brooke: Don't say that to me.
Julian: You knew last night. I'm such an idiot. come here. I'm sorry.i messed up. Are you sad?
Brooke: A little.
Julian: :[hugs her] It's gonna be okay.
Brooke: She must be high.
Victoria: I’m not high, I just had 3 martinis at lunch...okay, I’m a little buzzed.
Brooke: Not you drinkie...Millicent! She expects me to pay her 500 thousand dollars to model for this company.
Victoria: That’s not high, that’s smoking crack!
Brooke: That’s what I said! You know this is all Alex’s influence! That little bitch has been a pain in my perfect pilates ass since she rolled out of rehab and landed here.
Chase: Hi Mrs. Davis.
Victoria: Do I know you?
Chase: Really? Come on.
Victoria: Oh, right, you know my daughter. Your name is Fetch or Dash or something.
Chase: It’s Chase. And I didn’t just date her. We were lovers.
Victoria: Yeah, but for about 30 seconds from what I’ve heard.
Chase: We should shave that woman’s head and check it for the mark of the beast.
Grubbs: I don’t now. I thought she was kind of hot.
Brooke: They're beautiful. :[the flowers]
Julian: So are you. How you doing?
Brooke: Not so good.
Julian: Yeah, I know.
Brooke: I don't think you do.
Julian: No, I suppose I don't. But I want you to know something...I know that I've talked about slowing down and taking our time...but I want you to know that whenever we do get pregnant, that's gonna be a great day. And I'll be more than okay with it.
Brooke: We're not gonna have that day.
Julian: Baby, we will.
Brooke: No, we won't. They didn't just tell me that...that I wasn't pregnant. they said I'm never gonna be. I can't.
Julian: You can't have children? They told you that?
Brooke: I'm sorry.
Julian: Brooke...Hey, shh. baby, it's okay.
Brooke: It's not.
Julian: It is. It's going to be. I love you so much.
Brooke: But I want to have babies with you. I want to have a family.
Julian: Then we'll get a second opinion. And a third, okay? We'll find the best doctors out there.
Brooke: What if ...
Julian: Hey, shh, shh. I love you. That's all that matters. I love you.
Julian: So, I was thinking about taking some time off from, well .. doing nothing; how'd you like to spend some quality time with your boyfriend?
Brooke: I can't.
Julian: Oh, come on!
Brooke: No, really.. I need to go talk to Millicent. I am so pissed at her, so pissed that...
Julian: That you're going to go over and check that she's okay?
Julian: Love my girl. Hey. I don't need kids to make me happy. I just need you, Brooke Davis.
Brooke: What did I do to deserve you?
Victoria(to Millicent): Zero may not be a size, but right now it’s your IQ
Mrs. Edwards(to Dan): How dare you profit from this. You had everyone believing my Jimmy was a murderer. I had to bury him alone and ashamed. And you have the nerve to talk about forgiveness. I just came here to tell you that you will never find forgiveness from me. Never.
Haley: He's quoting your father now. It's unbelievable.
Mouth: I remember looking in that mirror and telling you how special you are. How can you not see that?
Millie: Marvin, when I look at that mirror, I just want to cut a line on it and snort it. That's what I see.
Clay: "Sometimes i think that we waste our words and we waste our moments and we dont take the time to say the things that are in our hearts when we have the chance.."
Julian: I came here to tell you two things. The first is that I love you and I miss you and I want to be with you. And the second is... I'm gonna make that movie with Alex.
Julian: My mom used to be the most amazing woman. She had this magic inside her. And after a while, she felt unloved or unworthy. I don't know. My dad was always working, and I was just a kid. I was always gone, just doing whatever kids do. No one reminded her how special she was. No one tried to stop her when she took that extra drink or those extra pills. And... Eventually, her fire burned out. And she became the not-so-special person she thought she was all along.
Brooke: Julian, you can't fix your mom by fixing Alex.
Julian: But maybe I can help her before her fire burns out. And if not... then at least I tried.
Clay: You know, $7 million is a good deal to play overseas. Or you could take $15 million from the Kings. Now, the deal does come with a few conditions. Three, actually. One, you have to leave ISC and sign with me. You'll be my second client. Two, your deal comes with a no-trade clause. Gonna need you to waive that... Because if you sign with the Kings...
Quinn: They've agreed to trade you and Joe Turner tonight! I'm sorry. I love that part.
Clay: They've agreed to trade you and Joe Turner... to the Charlotte Bobcats.
Nathan: What? Oh, my God!
Haley: Oh, my... Thank you!
Jamie: You're gonna be a Bobcat! Oh, I threw my jersey away.
Nathan: Clay, how did this happen?
Clay: With a lot of help from Quinn... Which brings me to my last condition. I want to be your agent, Nate, but if you're gonna sign with me, you need to know that I plan on falling completely and insanely in love with Quinn.
Dan: I've talked a lot about forgiveness. As you can imagine, a man like me has to believe in it. But I don't. Forgiveness doesn't exist. There's simply what you do... and how you pay for it. So remember that, when you practice whatever evil's in your heart... or when you cheat, or steal, or lust, or hate, or gossip, or covet, or whatever it is that you do, or you're planning to do, or you have done. There is no forgiveness. There's just what comes next. Take it from someone who's been there, who is there. There's only pain... and guilt... and the misery of knowing who you are, and what you did. So don't do it. Just stop... before it's too late. I miss you, big brother. Every second of every day.
Victoria(to Millie): I’m sorry to keep you…you must have mirrors to clean!
Julian: Welcome back. It would have been nice to get a call...E-mail, anything.
Brooke: We're taking some time apart.
Julian: And I backed off for six weeks, but...We need to talk now. We need to figure some things out together. If this is about you not being able to have kids, we should be talking about that. We should be talking about a lot of things.
Brooke: Things like Alex? How is she, by the way? Seems to be on the mend.
Julian: You want to talk about Alex? Okay.
Brooke: You told me that you want to save her, like you couldn't save your mom. What am I supposed to do with that?
Brooke: I can't!
Julian: Oh, I see. So since you can't understand me working with Alex, you show up in town with some guy like we're playing a game?
Brooke: I'm not playing a game.
Julian: Really? You show up with a guy named Alexander. "Alex"? Right. No game here.
Brooke: My mother hired Alexander. He is consulting on my men's line! That's it!
Julian: Okay. I believe you. Imagine that. I believe you.
Brooke: Do you think that this has been easy for me?
Julian: How would I know, Brooke? You never talk to me about it!
Brooke: I've tried...you know what? I can't do this. I have a lot of work to do today.
Julian: Right. Of course. Clothes over bros.
Alex: Hey, here you go.
Alex: You guys should talk. I'll... go.
Brooke: All day long I've been trying to figure out how to get past the you-and-Alex thing, and here you are...Together. You are always together.
Julian: Brooke, I bumped into her tonight.
Brooke: Of course.
Julian: It's always about Alex! Just stop it, Brooke!
Brooke: I will as soon as you stop acting like it's in my head! It's not!
Julian: Yes, it is!
Brooke: I saw you with her in the hospital, sitting by her bed, holding her hand. That was not in my head!
Julian: She tried to kill herself. I'm her friend.
Brooke: It was more than that. I was there!
Julian: How dare you? I am here in tree hill for you, and it's not good enough. You just keep waiting for the other shoe to drop, waiting for this not to work.
Brooke: I don't want to fight. I just wanted to talk.
Julian: Yet here we are fighting. And I'm getting really tired of fighting. You know, maybe you're right. Maybe I'm the guy who needs to save people. That's my issue. But I'm also the guy who loves you. I'm the guy you pushed away when you found out you couldn't have kids. I'm the guy you can't trust no matter much I tell you to. And that's your issue, Brooke. I'm never gonna be able to make that stop for you.
Brooke: So what are you saying?
Julian: I'm saying...maybe right now, you need to work on you, and I need to work on me. You've got your new line, and...I'm making a movie...with Alex. I should concentrate on that...Goodbye, Brooke.
Brooke : That makes me sick! Taylor is awful! I thought Alex was a bitch.
Haley : Ye, I know, right? And don't worry about Alex. Julian obviously still loves you. Brooke, he stayed in Tree Hill to make his movie.
Brooke : Yeah, well, he made it very clear today that he does not want to see me anymore.
Haley : He is probably just upset. You guys are way too good together not to make it. Just give it some time.
Brooke : Okay. Fine. Don't worry about this dinner tonight. You know, it's gonna be over before you know it.
Haley : Actually, Nathan's betting we don't make it through dinner. He said he thinks I'm gonna attack Taylor before the salad is served.
Brooke : Well, can you blame him? You've been arrested more times than anyone I know, "Jailey."
Haley : I hate my name.
Brooke : Let the wild rumpus start. Thanks, Hales. You'll be okay. Enjoy your last supper, Judas.
Taylor: Can we say grace first?
Haley: Now you’re religious?
Taylor: Well, I have been shouting god’s name a lot lately.
Taylor: That’s right, I’m the sister who actually sleeps with guys.
Clay: Do they give you a medal or a shot for that?
Haley: We have cupcakes for dessert!
Taylor: Oh I wish I could be like Haley, eat whatever I want and get fat!
Haley: Your lip’s about to get fat!
Nathan: Just tell me you know how messed up this is.
David: I was just trying to show Quinn...yes, it’s messed up.
Nathan: That’s all I wanted to hear.
David: So you’re not mad?
Nathan: I’m not thrilled, but I didn’t exactly like how Quinn handled things either. So you’re actually into Taylor or this was all to get back at Quinn?
David: We’re actually having fun together. She’s the first person who’s made me smile in a long time.
Nathan: Just make sure you like her for the right reasons, and not because she reminds you of her sister.
David: So we’re okay?
Nathan: Yeah, but if Haley asks I yelled at you and you’re sorry.
David: I am.
Brooke: You really think I'm the best.
Julian: Of course you are.
Brooke: So, let me get this straight. I'm better than everybody else on the planet who could possibly do this job?
Julian: That's right.
Brooke: Well, I guess if I am the best and you need the best...Then I have to do it.It wouldn't be fair otherwise...When do I start?
Julian: As soon as I find a director.
Brooke: You don't have a director?...Did you hire anyone for this movie?
Julian: The last guy didn't work out.
Brooke: What a shame. Too bad you don't know anyone who's...always wanted to direct...who knows the movie really well. I'm thinking someone whose name rhymes with "Shmulian"? You know anyone like that?
Julian: I don't think my dad would go for that. You know, I've never directed before.
Brooke: Make him go for it. Tell him you hired the best costume designer on the planet, and she'll only work with you if you direct. Because, ps., that's now the deal...Have your people call my people.
Haley: Well, then you really were dreaming because there's no way to play this cool! This is the most uncool thing Taylor has ever done!
Taylor: Morning kids!
Haley: Good morning, slut! You can get your things and go now
Taylor: What's wrong? Are you still mad about me and David? That's so last night
Haley: You like that outfit enough to get buried in or do you wanna go put something on?
Taylor: Why? It's nothing he hasn't seen before. But if you insist
Lydia: You're taking good care of my daughter. I remember the day you came to ask our permission to marry her. You were so nervous. But I looked into your eyes and I just knew...
Nathan: What did you know?
Lydia: That you were going to change my daughters life. And I was right.
Nathan: You are responsible for raising the woman who changed my entire world. I'll never forget that Lydia. Thank you for saying "yes".
Jamie(to Haley): I’m not crying for me, I’m crying for you.
Brooke: Mother, you’re glowing. In fact, you’ve been glowing for days. It’s getting weird.
Victoria: I suppose it’s because I’ve taken a lover.
Haley: Hi, friendly faces. Do you guys mind if I play third wheel for a little while? I'm not ready to go home yet.
Mouth: Yeah, you just missed my Millie rant.
Haley: I want to hear the Millie rant.
Brooke: Oh, we've moved on to the Julian rant.
Haley: Ooh, great. Can you at least start from the beginning?
Brooke: You didn't miss much. I was just saying that sometimes our relationship seems so simple and easy. But no matter what, it just turns into a big mess. And there are days that I want to dive into that mess, but then, other days, I can't help but wonder if maybe we're just two people who don't work as a couple.
Haley: But you love him, right?
Brooke: Like you don't even know.
Haley: Then don't wait. Life's too short to play games. If you love somebody and you want to be with them, then go get them. Deal with the mess later.We don't know what tomorrow will bring.
Julian: My lead actor looks like a cross between Richard Simmons and one of the Village People.
Haley: How am I gonna get through this?
Nathan: Graciously and courageously, the way you always do, with me by at your side. Every step of the way.
Josh: You know what's good on a black eye?
Alex: If you say, "raw meat," I will tear out your tonsils, tie off your weiner bag, and castrate you like a bull.
Brooke: I'm the donkey in a big, stupid shakespearean mixup.
Victoria: You're not making any sense.
Brooke: Alex slept with Alexander, not Julian. So, I ruined wardrobe... Bitched out the one man who makes my world turn... And clocked an interloping hoochie whose only mistake was boning Crocodile Dundee.
Victoria: You realize you're overlooking the best part of this... Julian didn't sleep with Alex. And as far as that shakespearean play, as I recall, the donkey gets turned back into a person once he realizes what an ass he's been.
Alex(to Brooke) : Didn't know your own strength, did you Bam Bam?
Lydia(to Quinn): You know I loved David, but I feel the same way about Clay that I did Nathan. I think he’s one of the good ones.
Taylor: I'm awful. All of my siblings are talented or smart or both. And I'm just Taylor. Nobody likes Taylor.
Lydia: I do.
Taylor: You have to say that. You're my mother.
Lydia: Get over here. Come here. Here is something... That nobody else knows. Of all of my kids, you are the one who reminds me the most of myself.
Taylor: I don't believe it.
Lydia: Well, that's because you've only known Lydia the mom. But there was a very... Taylor-ish Lydia before that. And that's why I have never had any doubt that you will find your way, because I did. And you can fight this all you want, but you are going to end up happy.
Taylor: I've been so awful. How can you still love me?
Lydia: Oh, God! My sweet baby. My love for you has never been in question. The only question here is, how long is it going to take for you to love yourself? Because wherever I am, wherever I go from here... I will never, ever let go of you.
Taylor: Please don't leave.
Brooke: I know I'm banned from the set, But I need to clear something up.
Julian: Well, this better be good.That black eye's gonna cost us about 100 grand.
Brooke: If it helps, it cost me my dignity.
Julian: Brooke, what the hell happened today?
Brooke: I thought you slept with alex.
Julian: So, basically, you still don't trust me.
Brooke: No. Basically I got jealous. Because I'm in love with you, julian, And I always will be. And that's gonna make me do stupid things sometimes Because love is crazy. And I've been crazy. I know. First, I thought you were falling for alex, And then, last night, I went to your hotel, And I thought you fell for alex. I'm sorry. :[(they kiss)] Julian: You think too much, brooke davis.
Nathan: It took a lot more than a close shave to get your mom to fall for me.
Jamie: Really? Why?
Nathan: When I met your mom I wasn’t the exactly nicest guy in the world. It's true. I was a bit selfish and I fought a lot.
Jamie: But you're not like that now.
Nathan: Being with your mom made me better person. And you know what, now that I think of it. Your mom and your Uncle Lucas did .
Jamie: It must’ve been fun having a brother growing up…it’s like having your best friend over all the time!
Nathan: Yeah. But remember Uncle Lucas and I weren’t really close when we were your age. And the important part is we became more like real brothers once we got a little bit older, but you're right, having a brother is like having a best friend. It helped make the man I am today.
Haley: Hands off, girlie. That one's mine.
Brooke: How you holding up?
Haley: I'm good.
Brooke: I know it must be hard. Your mom played a big part in this night.
Haley:Yeah, it is, but, you know, I think Jamie really helps. It's kind of life's little plan, you know? You have kids so you have something to hold onto when you lose your parents........What's wrong?
Brooke: I can't have kids.
Haley: What?......Have you seen a specialist or... ?
Brooke: Yeah, no, I did everything, and... kids aren't in the cards for me.
Haley: You cannot give up, Brooke. You never know.
Nathan: Can I ask you a favor? Even though she doesn’t show it all the time, deep down inside your mom is still very sad that your grandma died.
Nathan: So when I'm away, I need you to just watch other for her and make sure she’s not too sad…I need you to be the man of the house when I'm gone. Can you do that for me?
Julian: You remember what you said to me our first night here?
Brooke: "What if we ruin it?"
Julian: Every night I spent away from you,I dreamed about being back here... in this room, in this bed, with you. I dreamed about us, Brooke. And now we're here. We're back.And you look even more beautiful than in my dreams. I love you. I never stopped loving you...not for one night, not for one moment.And I never will. Nothing can ruin us, Brooke Davis.
Brooke: Welcome to Brooke's spa. We hope you enjoy your stay.
Julian: Trust me, it's great for the skin.
Brooke: In that case... :[(The phone ring)] Seriously? That thing has been ringing nonstop. Didn't the shoot just end?
Julian: Yeah, but editing just started.
Brooke: You just did the thing.
Julian: What thing?
Brooke: Whenever you're passionate about something, your eyebrows tighten up I saw it a lot on set. And even though I think it's kind of sexy, I'm worried about you.
Julian: Why? Because I'll never win the world poker championship?
Brooke: No. Because when you're passionate about something, you put everything you have into it. Have you stopped for one second to relax?
Julian: Yes. For about five hours every night.
Brooke: Sleeping doesn't count. I'm serious, Julian. I need you to take care of yourself because I want you to live for a long, long time.
Julian: Well, I will as long as I have you.
Brooke: Brooke's spa will always be here to help you recuperate.
Mouth: Thanks for stopping by Millie.It means a lot.
Millie: After all you've done for me, it's the least I could do. Can I ask you a question?
Millie: Do you ever miss me?
Mouth: Of course.
Millie: Thanks. That means a lot, too.
"What’s In The Ground Belongs To You" [7.21]
Haley: Someone once said that death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live. I could tell you who said it, but who the hell cares.
Haley: It all just seems so fake.This idea that good things happen to good people and there’s magic in the world, and that the meek and righteous will inherit it.There's too many good people who suffer for someting like that to be true.There are too many prayers that get unanswered.Every day we ignore how completely broken this world is, and we tell ourselves it’s all going to be okay."You're gonna be okay."But it’s not okay. And once you know that, there’s no going back. There’s no magic in the world…at least not today there isn’t.
Haley: I was thinking about the finality of it all – how somebody can leave your world in the blink of an eye and be gone forever. It’s too enormous to think about. It’s too hard. And then you’re just supposed to go on, right, like just deal with it, I mean really you’re only supposed to be sad for as long as the flowers last and then, oh, time to go back to telling jokes and reminiscing about the old days. I don’t have any jokes to tell.As a matter in fact I hope I never hear another joke as long as I live. And the old days are just that, they're old days, that are .. gone.
Haley: I hate to tell myself to just be happy. But I don’t feel happy. And when I try to change it, when I try to remember what being happy felt like, I can’t. I don’t feel joy. I don’t feel inspired. I feel numb.
Haley: Mom, it’s me. I know you’re gone. And you’re not coming back, but I was just thinking maybe somehow I could see you again or be able to talk to you or hear your voice. I snapped at Jamie today again, and he didn’t deserve it, and I don’t know why I did it, I just did. He deserves better than who I am right now and so does Nathan. Every day we ignore how truly broken this world truly is and we tell ourselves it’s all going to be okay."You're gonna be okay."But it’s not okay.I know that now.
Victoria: Haley.. Haley listen to me. I know you're in a great deal of pain right now, but I also know you;re aware of the choices you're making. So I want you to listen to me... and then you can say something snarky and dismissive and then be on your way, but please sit.
Victoria: Your mother was proud of you. And it would break her heart to know that her beautiful, kind, inspired daughter was suffering like this. I know that, because I’m a mother, too. And so are you. Our lives are difficult. Our losses are unbearable sometimes. So grieve. Struggle. Find your way back on your own terms and in your own way. But remember this: your mother would want you to be vibrant and inspiring in the face of her loss. She would want you to fight your pain with all you’ve got. Because that’s the daughter she raised. And that’s the daughter she loved.
Julian(to Chase): I’ll take a beer...I’ve heard about your mixed drinks.
"Almost Everything I Wish I’d Said The Last Time I Saw You" [7.22]
Haley: I was trying to feel something. Anything.
Therapist: And what did you find down there?
Haley: I remembered some of the good things in my life.
Therapist: And did that make you feel alive?
Haley: No. But it made me want to.
Julian: there are twelve of us and only six bedrooms and couches.
( everyone runs)
Brooke: You locked the master right?
Julian: (holds up a key) We're covered.
Skills:(about Quinn) She was sexy til she started dancing
Brooke: You excited about tomorrow night?
Julian: Yeah, my dad says three things have to happen at this festival: the audience has to love it, we have to sell it and I have to decide what’s next.
Brooke: Well not to sound naive, but maybe you should just enjoy it.
Jamie: Yeah I just enjoy it. It’s a good life.
Julian: It’s pretty magical, isn’t it?
Brooke: It’s beautiful. This whole trip has been perfect.
Julian: Well, I had a little help. Last night at the bar Jamie gave me a gold star for luck. Wanna see it?
[Julian places ring in her palm.Brooke stares in shock.]
Julian: "Oh, wait, that's not it, that's the engagement ring I got for you. Where'd I put that thing. Hey, everyone says that the next thing I do, the next choice I make is gonna define me, my career, my life, well, the next thing I wanna do is ask you to be my wife, and tell you how much I love you, and how nothing else matters. When I look into your eyes, Brooke, I see the rest of my life, and I see it with you. [gets one knee, places ring on Brooke's finger,] Marry me, Brooke Davis.
Brooke: Yes, okay, I want to so much.
Paul: Thank you, welcome. Uh when my son Julian called me and asked me if I wanted to make a movie with him, I thought might be a nice chance to reconnect. But that was wishful thinking on my part because I was gone so often when he was growing up that we never really connected in the first place. And that’s a shame. Whenever I finish a movie I have an expression: Let’s kick it out of the nest and...
Paul & Julian: See if it flies.
Paul: Well son we kicked you out of the nest and it’s been a pleasure watching you soar. I hope you all agree.
Julian:[to Brooke] I’ll see you in a bit
Nathan: Jamie had a blast today. The guys built him a snow fort. I know that you came here just for him. And I love you for that, Haley.
Haley: Please don't think that I take that for granted. But I'm so grateful for who you've been through all this and how you've been.
Nathan: There's no other way to be. You've saved me so many times...I worry that I've been selfish with you. That I've taken advantage of your strength and your selflessness and that I've broken you somehow.
Haley: No, no, you haven't, you didn't. I just have a weight in my heart that I didn't have before. But it's lighter today.
[Haley, Jamie and the rest of the Tree Hill gang approach a snowy hill in Utah]
Jamie: Sure is a long way up mama.
Haley: No it's just a hill. Come on, we'll climb it together.
Nathan: You okay?
Haley: These aren't sad tears. They're happy tears.
Nathan: All right, well, how about from now on, we do smiles for happy instead? What is it?
Haley: I'm pregnant. I think it's gonna be a girl.
