Jake Jaglieski: [to Lucas] So the hazing begins. Right on schedule.
[Smells the air]
Jake Jaglieski: Can you smell the desperation?
Jake Jaglieski: Luke, the guys on the team, they're in a tough spot. Because of the suspension, most of these guys are younger, and they're not going to stand up to Nathan. It's not right, but that's the way it is.
Lucas Scott: Yeah well, the way it is, doesn't work for me... and it doesn't work for my friends.
Jake Jaglieski: Yeah, I know, but that's kind of why I came here. This thing could get really messy if someone doesn't take the high road. And I know this is not my place to ask, but I was just hoping that you could rise above it.
Lucas Scott: I don't think I can do that.
Jake Jaglieski: Okay. Just know that if you do... the team's gonna come around. They'll see you're a good guy and a hell of a player.
Lucas Scott: And if I can't?
Jake Jaglieski: Then I got your back.
Jake Jaglieski: Fear changes everything.
Nathan Scott: What do you know about it, Jagielski?
Jake Jagielski: What do any of us know about anything?
Jake Jagielski: Fear changes everything.
[Gives Lucas the book "Atlas Shrugged" by Ayn Rand]
Jake Jagielski: Just remember, don't let him take it.
Jake Jagielski: Bow Chicka Wow Wow... So uh, did you ladies order room service?
Jake Jaglieski: [to the Time Capsule] So, I'm a single father, and until recently a high school dropout, and I'm going on the first date since my daughter was born, aren't I a great catch or what?
Nicki: I got the cutest little stuffed animal.
Jake Jaglieski: She has a purple monkey that she can't sleep without. Anything else, she ignores... Got the wrong formula. She needs a special kind because she wasn't breastfed. The alcohol in these wipes are bad for her skin. I buy her a special vitamin because she was a little underweight at her six-month checkup. She doesn't read. She sure as hell doesn't smoke. Oh, well look, at least you got the most expensive kind of ice cream.
Nicki: I got that for you. 'Cause on our third date you said all that you needed for life to be good was a pint of this ice cream. I want your life to be good, Jake. I want to be with that boy that told me those things. Where did he go?
Jake Jaglieski: You left him. Damn it, Nicki. It's not fair for you to come back here and do this. It's not fair to me, and it's not fair to Jenny.
Nicki: I still love you, you know?
Jake Jaglieski: It's funny. I can't tell you how many times I spent wondering when I was gonna hear you say that again. Just hoping that the next time the phone rang it'd be you calling to say those words.
Nicki: Jake -
Jake Jaglieski: And now that you're here, I... I can't even remember why I needed to hear them. You should recognize this next move, Nicki. You perfected it. It's called turning my back and leaving you behind.
Jake Jaglieski: I could have held you in my arms forever, and it still wouldn't have been long enough.
