I brought you back your house keys. It's a very nice house -- big rooms, no parents. I used to have one of those.
Someone once said: it's the good girls who keep diaries. The bad girls never have the time. Me... I just wanna live a life I'm gonna remember. Even if I don't write it down.
Whatever. The point is at the end of the day, all your bluster and BS don't mean anything to math because math don't care. And neither do I.
So you wanna know what things were like fifty years ago? Well, the truth is there's not a single person in this place worth remembering in fifty years.
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.
Have you ever wondered what marks our time here? If one life can really make an impact on the world? Or if the choices we make matter? I believe they do. And I believe that one man can change many lives... for better or worse!
What's my problem? My problem's on the other side of that wall. And in 5 minutes, if I'm not perfect, they're going to eat me alive. That's my problem.
Well you can go on tour but if you do we're over.
You know, just when I think things can't get any weirder around here, Mom takes over Karen's cafe. I think I'm going to invite Lucas over to spend the night.
I feel like you're always rescuing me. Also, like there's a giant elephant standing on my head.
There's no shame in being afraid. Hell, we're all afraid. What you gotta do is figure out what you're afraid of, because when you put a face on it you can beat it. Better yet, you can use it. Looking back on what I said all those years ago, all the hopes and dreams I had, I've come to the conclusion that if having things turn out the way you wanted them to is a measure of a successful life, then some would say I'm a failure.
Don't be too fat, or too thin, or too dark, or too light; don't be too sexual, or too chaste, or too smart, or too dumb. Be yourself. But make sure you fit in.
So you want me to tell you something about myself? I don't have anything to say. Even if I did you'd be wrong to believe me. Trust is a lie. Nobody ever knows any more.
You should've thought of that last night. You know I keep... I keep putting myself out there and you keep blowing it and it's probably a good thing because at this point there is nothing that you can say or do that's gonna surprise me!
Be careful with his heart. It's more fragile than you think.
I want to draw something that means something to someone. Like when you go see a really great band live for the first time and no one is saying it but everyone's thinking it... I want to draw that feeling, but I can't.
[to Haley] Sometimes people play hard to get to know that the other person's feelings are real.
The "Hey, let's hook up after the game" nod. You wanna know what I think? I think Nathan likes tutor girl, tutor girl likes Lucas, and I know I like Lucas, and I have no idea who the hell you like any more so this has been turned into one big love... rectangle plus one... whatever that is!
Okay, guy in need of a clue. Here's one. Women send signals. That was a brush off. Before you dip into your shallow pool of wit let me paint us a picture and save us both the trouble. Here's your evening. You are going to slink back off to your buddies, laugh this off, get wasted, go home, and make nice with yourself. But don't be thinking of me, because even your fantasy of me, isn't interested in you.
Lucas was my gangrene-infected, amputated limb.
Listen to me, no matter what happened on that bridge, it was still my fault. I knew how old Rachel was, and I didn't walk away. That's not very heroic is it? Anyways, I wouldn't even be alive to say anything if it wasn't for you.
In your life you're going to go to some great places, and you're going to do some wonderful things. But no matter where you go or who you become, this place will always be with you. There is only one Tree Hill. And it's your home.
All right just to recap on the "reasons to stay" side we got: Dan's an ass, you were an ass, my new teaching job, we both get a fresh start, your mother annihilated my heart, and this apartment has a killer view.
Most people are stronger than they know. They just forget to believe in it sometimes.
She makes me laugh. She's honest. She's not afraid to be herself. Plus, she's not covered head to toe in issues.
I kind of always thought you were looking for a little faith. Most days, I think you still are. Then again, I'm 32. I live with my parents. What the hell do I know?
As Haley James would say: You already know the answer.
My pen is the barrel of a gun. Remind me which side you should be on.
Replaying the shot you missed. The shot that ended our season. The shot you probably, what, made a 1,000 times?
The important thing is not to be bitter over life's disappointments. Learn to let go of the past, and recognize that every day won't be sunny. And when you find yourself lost in the darkness of despair, remember, it's only in the black of night that you see the stars, and those stars lead you back home.
When I fell to the floor tonight, I was so scared, I was so terrified. Then I saw you, and I promised myself that if I could just get up, I'd walk over to you... I'd tell you how much I need you and how much I want you... and how nothing else matters.
You know for most of my life I would have gone through this alone, but then I met you. And I finally found someone I could depend on like I've got this. So I guess I called you 'cause I wanted to know if that was still there.
You realize I wouldn't be in this situation if it wasn't for you. If you'd stayed in your place at the river court I never would have met Haley. You ruined my life, man. You'd better watch your back.
She's young enough to be your daughter, and in this town, she might just be.
I should apologize. But I won't.
Somewhere along the line, I started hurting the people I care most about, and I can't figure out how to stop.
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.
Ida Scott Taylor once wrote: Do not look back and grieve over the past, for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering.
Here's my philosophy on dating. It's important to have somebody that can make you laugh, somebody you can trust, somebody that, y'know, turns you on... And it's really, really important that these three people don't know each other.
