Honey Grove Prom ♥
LUCAS: I slowly but very gently take her in my arms, and I bring her in real close like this. Wow. Last time we kissed, it was so damn good, I collapsed. I'm joking.
PEYTON: I've been holding in my feelings because I'm in love with him.
HALEY: Which makes no sense whatsoever.
PEYTON: Well, it does to me. The last time Lucas and I kissed, like, really kissed, he had a heart attack, and he almost died. I'm bad luck.
HALEY: Oh, shut up. You are not.
PEYTON: Yeah, I am. Think about every person I've gotten close to-- my mom, Jake, Ellie, Derek. Where are they all now? Even my dad works a thousand miles away.
HALEY: Peyton, there's one thing that you're not considering in all of this.
PEYTON: What's that?
HALEY: None of those people are Lucas.
PEYTON: I want to kiss you, Luke. I do. I just don't want to lose you.
LUCAS: Hey, what makes you think you're gonna lose me?
PEYTON: Only the fact that I lose everyone I care about. Anytime I open up to someone, they walk out of my life, or they die. Or they move away or they get shipped off to Iraq or they turn into frickin' Norman Bates or...
LUCAS: Not everyone.
PEYTON: Look, the last time we kissed, you had a heart attack.
LUCAS: And I didn't die. I couldn't die. Do you know why? Because I had to come back and look into those green eyes of yours and tell you I love you. I do. I love you, Peyton. You didn't push me away. I came back for you. No matter how long it takes, I'll wait for you.
LUCAS: I've been waiting for you.
PEYTON: I think we've waited long enough.
LUCAS (V.O.): Sometimes pain becomes such a huge part of your life that you expect it to always be there, because you can't remember a time in your life when it wasn't. But then one day you feel something else, something that feels wrong, only because it's so unfamiliar. And in that moment you realize you're happy.
TEACHER: Passing notes, Mr. Scott? How about we share this with the class?
LUCAS: Be happy to. It just says that... "Peyton, you look amazing. And I can't wait till class is over so I can look at those green eyes and kiss your perfect lips."
TEACHER: Oh, young love. At least you'll be together in detention.
PEYTON: So worth it.
LUCAS: That was pretty awesome.
PEYTON: I know.
LUCAS: Kind of like your smile. Happy looks good on you.
PEYTON: Yeah? I feel like I'm living in an Air Supply song.
LUCAS: Well, you know, if we're gonna go '80s, I'm more of a Van Halen fan.
PEYTON: No, it's just, everything's better now, you know, pinks are pinker and blues are bluer, and even my favourite foods taste yummier.
LUCAS: If anyone can make a chocolate-chip cookie taste better, I'm sure it's you.
PEYTON: You are so feeling the love!
LUCAS: Well, I'll share anything for a cookie.
PEYTON: Come with me.
LUCAS: So, you know, if we're both feeling the love, what are we doing in a cemetery?
PEYTON: There's somebody I want you to meet. Hi, mom. It's me. So, this is Lucas, the boy I've been telling you about. Look what he's done. He's got me smiling. Can you believe it?
LUCAS: Hey, Mrs. Sawyer. I just want you to know that Peyton's the best thing I have in my life. I wouldn't even be here if it wasn't for her.
KAREN: I almost didn't recognize you without Peyton attached to your hip.
KAREN: Well, if it matters, I approve. You have had the biggest crush on her for years.
LUCAS: Mom, guys don't have crushes. Girls have crushes.
KAREN: Well, what do guys have? The hots?
LUCAS: The hots. Seriously, where do you come up with this stuff?
(I love Karen ♥)
LUCAS: I just want to let it all go away, you know? I don't want to be like this anymore. How would you like to just be happy, hmm?
PEYTON: I thought you'd never ask.
LUCAS (to Peyton): Now, if you are going to be taking anything off, please, please, please, let me help you.
LUCAS (to Peyton): This is the best cookie I've ever had.
LUCAS: Happiness comes in many forms. In the company of good friends, in the feeling you get when you make someone else's dream come true, or in the promise of hope renewed. It's okay to let yourself be happy, because you never know how fleeting that happiness might be.
LUCAS: You remember Peyton, right?
GLENDA: Yeah, sure, the loner.
PEYTON: Loner cheerleader. I really liked the picture you took of Lucas. The eye shadow was a little Fall Out Boy, though.
PEYTON: Well, what about me? I’m…I can be impartial.
LUCAS: I don’t think so.
LUCAS: Because you’re in it.
PEYTON: Give me that book right now.
PEYTON: Pretty please with me on top?
LUCAS: Well, I can be persuaded.
PEYTON: Okay. No. Okay, stop, stop, stop. I don’t think so.
LUCAS: Okay, come on. I’ll let you read the first six chapters of my book.
PEYTON: That's very sexy, but I just want our first time to be special. And right now it's really not with Nationals' CD wedged underneath my back, which is a very good album, by the way.
PEYTON (to Brooke): You know I love him. I really do. But I never meant for my love for him to hurt you.
PEYTON: So, we were in the chapter where you take your girlfriend up to that empty bedroom at the party.
LUCAS: I think I may need to do a little research first.
PEYTON: I was hoping you'd say that.
LUCAS: I thought you said you wanted to wait.
PEYTON: Do you remember what you said the last time we were here? You said you wanted it all, and I walked away. I made a big mistake that night 'cause all I wanted was sex.
LUCAS: What do you want now?
PEYTON: Now I want what you wanted. I want everything with you.
PEYTON: So, the first thing you did this morning was go see Brooke?
LUCAS: It was on the way.
PEYTON: You know what else is on the way? My front door. Shut it when you leave.
LUCAS: I like the red dress.
PEYTON: You would. It's Brooke's.
LUCAS: Why do you have it?
PEYTON: So she doesn't.
LUCAS: Okay, don't you think stealing Brooke's prom dress is going a little bit too far?
PEYTON: No, I think going a little too far is making your friend feel like a whore when you've done worse.
LUCAS: Didn't we kind of do the same thing to her?
PEYTON: We had sex? That's funny. I don't really remember. It must not have been very good.
LUCAS: Look, we didn’t have sex, but we did sneak around behind her back.
PEYTON: Do you ever actually defend the person you’re dating?
HALEY (to Lucas): You've got to let her know that you're there for her and that you're nothing like her ex-boyfriend.
LUCAS: I think you're gonna regret not going. I know I'll regret not going with you.
PEYTON: I just can't. I'm sorry.
LUCAS: Well, I really hope you change your mind, because I'm coming back later, and I'm picking you up. And if you open that door, I know you're gonna look beautiful. And then we're gonna have a great night. And if not, I guess I'm going alone.
NATHAN: Because you cared. That's who you are. You care about Lucas because you know he loves you, and you probably still care about me and Brooke because you know we love you, too. Just face it, Peyton. You care. So get dressed and go with Lucas. I'll see you there.
LUCAS: Hey Peyton, this isn’t right. You’re the one I wanna be with tonight, prom or not. So call me, okay? Please.
LUCAS: Okay you think that’s bad, Peyton wrote to me in my sophomore yearbook, “Peyton Sawyer.”
PEYTON: Come on! I didn’t even know you then.
LUCAS: You know how hard I worked to get my yearbook in front of her? And then she signs her damn name. I was crushed.
PEYTON: Lucas Scott, will you go to prom with me?
PEYTON: Thanks for being so good to me this week, Luke, and to Brooke. It means everything.
LUCAS: I’d do anything for you.
PEYTON: Hey, you brought protection, right?
LUCAS: Have you met my father?
PEYTON: Oh, of course you did, sorry. Luke, I’m really glad we waited. Last year would have been just sex, and now I…I am so in love with you.
LUCAS: I love you, too, Peyton.
LUCAS: Hey, you. You okay? Wow, you look beautiful. You seem sad.
PEYTON: No, I’m not. It’s just… I really love you, Lucas, and it’s a big deal.
LUCAS: I love you, too, Peyton. I promise.
PEYTON: Excuse me. I have a boyfriend.
LUCAS: Really? Where is he?
PEYTON: Good question. I’ve been wondering that myself for two days.
LUCAS: Yeah, I guess I deserve that.
PEYTON: Makes a girl feel cheap. Give it up in Honey Grove and then poof! Vanishing boyfriend.
PEYTON: I applied for an internship at Sire Records a few months ago, before we were together. And I just found out I got it.
LUCAS: Oh, my God, that’s great.
PEYTON: It’s in Los Angeles.
LUCAS: Take it. You deserve it.
PEYTON: I don’t want to leave you.
LUCAS: I will be here when you get back. But you are destined for greatness Peyton, and we both know that. This is your first step. You can’t pass that up.
PEYTON: Are you sure?
LUCAS: Yeah. I’m so proud of you. Look, Peyton. You know I love you, right?
LUCAS: No matter what happens to either one of us, you will always be In my heart.
PEYTON: You know, I… I really do appreciate you being supportive about all of this, but a little bit of disappointment would be good for my ego.
LUCAS: I just want you to be happy, Peyton. You have some much magic in you. I don’t want to hold that back.
PEYTON: But everything’s okay?
LUCAS: I wish we’d never left that hotel room in Honey Grove because you’re prefect. And we’re prefect. And that night was prefect.
PEYTON: Well, saying that just earned you another one.
LUCAS: I gotta go back to the hospital.
PEYTON: Can I come with you?
LUCAS: Sure. Just, let me hold you for a couple more minutes. That’s what’s gonna fix me.
PEYTON: Okay. Before you do, I think there’s something you should see. If you skip graduation, we’re all gonna skip with you. Remember what you told me about how much I’d regret it if I skipped prom? You were right. And I think your mom would want you to graduate with all your friends.
LUCAS: You’ve got to be kidding me, again?
PEYTON: I guess.
LUCAS: Doesn’t look like anything’s wrong. You sure it won’t start? Peyton?
PEYTON: Oh, the car’s fine. I was just feeling sentimental about the first time we spoke.
LUCAS: Feeling sentimental or avoiding packing for your trip to Los Angeles with Brooke tomorrow?
PEYTON: I don’t wanna go. I mean, I do wanna go. I’m just…I’m gonna miss you.
LUCAS: I don’t want you to go`
LUCAS: I’m sorry, I just…I’ve been trying to put a good face on.. God, I love you so much, Peyton.
PEYTON: So you want me to stay?
PEYTON: Then I’ll stay.
LUCAS: No, you won’t. I just…I want you to stay, but I won’t let you. And do you know why? Because I’ve told you before, you’re destined for greatness and it starts tomorrow morning.
Peyton: It’s not gonna matter anyway, whether I stay or go, with us. Because I’m gonna love you forever, Lucas Scott.
One of the best and heartwarming Leyton season!
Best cookies I ever had!
