Peyton: Those are my sketches!
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Uhm, I wasn't looking at them.
Peyton: This is personal. Alright. I don't read your diary!
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: I don't have a diary!
Peyton: No. Dear Diary, my daddy doesn't love me. P.S. Stay out of my stuff!

Peyton: [sarcastically] Nice pass!
Lucas: Nice legs!

Peyton: I guess misery really does love company.
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: What're you doing here?
Peyton: Actually, I'm not here. I was never here.
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: You know, I shoot the ball, and it goes in. I don't ask questions. I don't think about it. That's just the way it is.
Peyton: Or the way it was.
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Yeah.
Peyton: Look, it's just a game. Who cares if the entire school and most of your friends and, half the town saw you suck?
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: So, you've clearly come to cheer me up.

Peyton: Look, you mind if I ask you a question?
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Shoot.
Peyton: Why'd you decide to do it? Join the team. Cause you don't exactly fit in here do you?
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: The game I guess. I love the game.
Peyton: Right. The same reason I cheer, it's all a big game. But why not just stay on the playground? Why join varsity?
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Because I want to know if I'm good.
Peyton: But if you ask my opinion, we all just wasted a perfectly good evening. You, me, and everybody else in there.
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Then why do you do it? I mean, do you really like it or not?
Peyton: If I say that I like it then I'm just another cheerleader. But, if I say that I hate it, then I'm either a liar or a fraud. Either way I lose. Do you want to come in?
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: What about Nathan?
Peyton: What about him?
[Gets out of truck, Lucas gets out after her. At door, she turns and see him]
Peyton: What are you doing?
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Um, you just said ...
Peyton: I didn't invite you to come in. I just asked if you wanted to. Thanks for the ride.

Haley James: Any side effects?
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: From what?
Haley James: Your amnesia.
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: What are you talking about?
Haley James: I'm talking about, you must have gotten amnesia because I know you would have mentioned that you got into a fight today. Are you okay Luke?
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Yeah. You ever wake up from a really good dream, and try to get back to sleep? Or you got the flu, and you promise yourself you will appreciate normal so much more, if you can just get back to it? That's the way I feel. I just want things to go back to the way they were.
Haley James: With basketball?
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: With everything.

Lucas 'Luke' Scott: [voice-over] Do not let your fire go out... spark by irreplaceable spark... in the hopeless swamps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish... in lonley frustration for the life you deserved... but never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists, it is real. It is possible. It is yours.
[Ayn Rand]

Lucas 'Luke' Scott: I didn't want to be like him and I was afraid that I'd become him if I played. In the gym, I felt like he had a piece of me. I never felt like that on the playground.
Karen Roe: Well, I'd say he's taken enough from us. I took the night off to watch my son play again. The way that he used to when he loved the game more than anything

Karen Roe: [Karen, Lucas, and Haley are sitting at a table in the cafe. Karen has just learned that Lucas and Nathan have fought in class, becuase Nathan described Lucas in one word... bastard] So, are you going to tell me about the fight, or are you going to assume that I know while I yell at you?
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Mom, listen...
Karen Roe: No, when they called me from school today, I was sure they had the wrong Scott. Then they told me they had both Scotts, and I could take my pick. Honestly! Fighting in school, Lucas? Fighting at all? My God, Lucas, what were you thinking?
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: But he was being a jerk, mom!
Karen Roe: And this is something new? He hasn't been a jerk before?
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Yes, but...
Karen Roe: Then, why sink down to his level?

Mr. Kelly: You know, early in his career, Hemingway was frustrated. He was a good writer who wanted to be great and eventually he discovered that less was more. Peyton. Describe Lucas using just one word.
Peyton: Joke.
Mr. Kelly: Okay, quiet, please. Thank you. Lucas, care to respond and describe Peyton?
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Lonely.

Haley James: Did you ever pick out your porn name?
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: What are you talking about?
Haley James: Your porn name. Um, you know. You take the name of your first pet and your mother's maiden name, you put them together. What was the name of your first pet?
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: You know that. I had a dog named Rocket.
Haley James: Oh, Rocket. I loved Rocket. So, your mother's maiden name is Rowe. Rocket Rowe. Nice.
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: What's yours?
Haley James: Oh, I had a bunny named Bunny.
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: You named the bunny Bunny.
Haley James: Yes, I did. And my mother's maiden name is Beaugard. So...
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Bunny Beaugard.
Haley James: Bunny Beaugard. Dawson's Freaks, starring Rocket Rowe and Bunny Beaugard.
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Nice.
Haley James: Shut Up.

Lucas 'Luke' Scott: In the gym I felt like he had a piece of me, I never felt like that on the playground.

Nathan Scott: Go ahead man prove me wrong.
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: I don't have to prove anything to you.

Lucas 'Luke' Scott: You ever wake up from a really good dream and try really hard to get back to sleep or you've got the flu and promise yourself you'll appreciate normal so much more if you could just get back to it.


"One Tree Hill: Pilot (#1.1)" (2003)
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: No foul, basket counts, besides you won't score again.

Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Anyway... Guys kept teasing me about it, about how Nathan's dad was my dad, too. So I asked my mom, and she said he wasn't. But I get home, and I hear her crying in her room. I knew it was true. So I never went back. I told my mom it was because I didn't want to have to see his face. But, it was mostly because I didn't want her to have to.

Lucas 'Luke' Scott: [Peyton's car has broken down, Lucas comes to tow it] Can I ask you a question?
Peyton: It's a free country.
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Why are you a cheerleader? I mean, no offense or anything, but you're about the least cheery person I know.
[Gets in wrecker, Peyton is waiting for Nathan to show up]
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Come on, let me give you a ride. I'll let you insult me.
Peyton: First of all, you don't know me. Second of all, you don't know me. God, why are guys suck jerks?
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Guys or Nathan?
Peyton: Him. You.
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: I don't know. We share the same father.
Peyton: Yeah, I heard that. He's kind of an ass. That must suck, having to see him around.
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: For my mom. I never knew him.
Peyton: But she told you he was your dad?
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Yeah, eventually. We used to play in junior leagues together, me and Nathan.
Peyton: Basketball?
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Yeah. And I loved it, and I was good at it. Have you ever had something that you knew that you were better at than almost anybody else?
Peyton: Sex.
[Lucas gives her a look]
Peyton: Joke.
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Anyway. Guys kept teasing me about it, about how Nathan's dad was my dad too. So I asked my mom, and she said he wasn't, but, I get home, and I hear her crying in her room. And I knew it was true. So I never went back. And I told my mom it was because I didn't want to have to see his face. But it was mostly because... I don't want her to have to.
Peyton: So why'd you just tell me all that? I mean, we don't even know each other.
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Maybe that's the point.

Lucas 'Luke' Scott: You ever have something that you knew that you were better at than... almost anybody else?
Peyton: Sex... Joke.

Haley James: [Small flock of birds just flew at her] Damn! What is up? I was attacked by a flock of crows last week! I'm totally serious!
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: By the way, it's a murder.
Haley James: What?
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: More than one crow is a murder.
Haley James: I don't know what the hell you're talking about.
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: A parliament of owls, an exaltation of larks... a murder of crows.
Haley James: I think that is why people think you're weird, right there.
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: I would like to show him sometimes, what a mistake he's made.
Haley James: Dan?
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Mostly for Mom... and sometimes for me.
Haley James: So Luke, what are ravens? I mean, you know, more than one?
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: An unkindness.

Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Did you change your hair?
Karen Roe: If by "change" you mean "dragged a brush through it", then yeah.

Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Why are you a cheerleader? I mean, no offense or anything, but you're about the least cheery person I know.
[gets into truck and comes out few minutes later after it seems like Nathan isn't coming to pick Peyton up]
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Come on. Let me give you a ride. I'll let you insult me.
Peyton: First of all, you don't know me. And second of all, you don't know me.

Peyton: So, what did you bet?
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: I win, Nathan stays on the team.
Peyton: Why?
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Because it's the last thing he wants. And anyway, it's not about him.

Lucas 'Luke' Scott: [voiceover] There is a tide in the affairs of men, which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune but omitted, and the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries. On such a full sea are we now afloat and we must take the current when it serves or lose the ventures before us. -Julius Caeser

Haley James: The magazine pages are sticky again, little perv. Hey, Lucas! Have you been reading this?
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: I don't know, Haley. Is that the "Why do I hang out with these people?" issue, because your on the cover of that, right?
Haley James: Actually it's the "My best friend is an idiot" issue, and there you are.

Karen Roe: So, I got something for you, Lucas.
Haley James: Actually, I found it. Not that I was looking for something specifically, which implies some hideous sort of "Joey loves Dawson" scenario and completely creep me out, but, you know, we saw it, and... Well, give him the book!
[Lucas open up the gift]
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Wow. "Julius Caesar."
Karen Roe: "There's a tide in the affairs of men", or something like that.
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Nice. Thank you, guys. Thank you very much.
Haley James: Whatever. That's what you're into.

Coach Whitey Durham: Nice, isn't it? A lot of people like their gyms loud. I like mine like this: quiet, clean... kind of like a church. A lot of praying done here, anyway. You played ball in grade school. Why'd you quit?
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: I didn't.
Coach Whitey Durham: [chuckling] What, four guys in a park? That's not exactly basketball.
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Then what do you think we're doin' out there?
Coach Whitey Durham: I don't know. Planning a bank job? Look, I've got an opening in my lineup. Varsity. Chance of a lifetime. What do you say?
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: I say those people that pray here waste their time. God doesn't watch sports.

Lucas 'Luke' Scott: [to Peyton] I'll be seeing you.


"One Tree Hill: The Show Must Go On (#3.22)" (2006)
Lucas: William Shakespeare wrote; 'Love is not love which alters when it alteration finds. It is an ever fixed mark that looks on tempests and is never shaken. Love alters not with time's brief hours and weeks, but bears it out even to the edge of doom'.

Haley James: We're going to London for a few days.
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Doesn't it always rain there?
Nathan Scott: Oh yeah... smiles.

Lucas 'Luke' Scott: The last time I gave a speech about Nathan and Haley was, well at their first reception. I remember saying, 'Prepare to be surprised.' Well, I have to say even I was surprised; because, you see they do something that's very rare to see in someone our age. Actually, it's very rare to see in anybody; they give their hearts to each other, unconditionally. And, that's what true love really is. It's not this fairytale life that never knows pain, but it's two souls facing it together and diminishing it with unconditional love. To Nathan and Haley Scott.

Lucas 'Luke' Scott: At this moment there are six billion, five hundred and two million, eight hundred and sixty seven thousand, one hundred and twenty people in the world, give or take a few and sometimes all you need is one. For better or for worse.

Lucas Scott: Look, Brooke, I need you to listen to me. Okay? I understand that you didn't know about the kiss and I'm sorry for springing it on you, but I meant what I said. It didn't mean anything.
Brooke Davis: A kiss always means something.
Lucas Scott: Okay, maybe you're right. But it wasn't a romantic moment and you would know that if-.
Brooke Davis: If what? I was there? As you so sweetly pointed out to me at the party, the party that I threw for you, I wasn't there, was I?
Lucas Scott: Is it impossible for you to forgive me? I forgave you.
Brooke Davis: For what?
Lucas Scott: Sleeping with Chris Keller
Brooke Davis: And you know what, Lucas, I loved you for that. You had such grace in that moment that I fell in love with you all over again. I just can't believe you would use it now as a bargaining chip!
Lucas Scott: No, I'm not. I'm not. I'm not. I, just, need you to trust me and believe me when I tell you my heart is with you. A part of me feels like ever since we got back together, you've just been waiting, waiting to push me away.
Brooke Davis: Oh, great. You kiss Peyton, again, and I'm pushing you away. God! Why did I have to make everybody identicle purses as wedding gifts?
Lucas Scott: I love you, Brooke. I don't know how else to say it.
Brooke Davis: How about how you show it? I am not pushing you away, Lucas, I am holding on for dear life. But I need you to need me back, okay? Why didn't you tell me about the kiss? And why didn't you call me while you were away? And why won't you ever just let me all the way in? We have to go give our speeches now about love.
Lucas Scott: Please don't be mad, Brooke.
Brooke Davis: I'm not mad, Luke. I'm not mad.

Lucas Scott: The last time I made a speech about Nathan and Haley was, well, at their first reception. I remember saying "Prepare to be surprised." Well, I have to say even I was surprised. Because, you see, they do something very rare to see in someone our age. Actually, it's very rare to see in anybody. They give their hearts to each other. Unconditionally. And that's what true love really is. It's not this fairy tale life that never knows pain. But it's to souls facing it together. And diminishing it with unconditional love. To Nathan and Haley Scott.

Brooke Davis: Guess we never finished that conversation.
Lucas Scott: Everyday. I was just angry and upset about Keith and I needed to be alone, but that doesn't mean I didn't miss you, Brooke. Because I did.
Brooke Davis: I needed to hear your voice. There's just so much stuff going on with me and I-.
Lucas Scott: What kind of stuff?
Brooke Davis: It doesn't matter anymore.

Lucas: William Shakespeare wrote:"Love is not love Which alters when it alteration finds, it is an ever-fixed mark That looks on tempests and is never shaken; Love alters not with time's brief hours and weeks, But bears it out even to the edge of doom''.


"One Tree Hill: Every Night Is Another Story (#1.6)" (2003)
Lucas: [to Peyton] Hey. So I saw Nathan in the shower... yeah, no wonder you broke up with him.

Karen Roe: So what does this dress say to you? Single and successful or married to her work?
Lucas Scott: Is this for that Justice League thing?
Karen Roe: Small Business League, and I want to look nice
Lucas Scott: Is Keith still going as your date?
Karen Roe: It's not a date. So which dress?
Lucas Scott: Umm... black I guess
Karen Roe: Then black it is. Keith didn't say anything to you did he?
Lucas Scott: Ohh about the date that you two aren't going on? No...
Karen Roe: Haha... good luck on your game tonight...
Lucas Scott: Yeah you too Ma.

Lucas: Man, its been like, twenty minutes, do you think they're coming back?
[Nathan shrugs, then starts laughing]
Lucas: What?
Nathan: Thing, Thing 1, and Thing 3.
[they both laugh]
Lucas: Well, yeah, man, he was the third.
Nathan: Yeah.

Thing: I'm The Thing
Thing #1: And I'm thing # 1
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: And let me guess your thing # 2?
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: [points at thing #3]
Thing #3: No I'm thing # 3. Because, I'm the third.

Haley James: Hey, stranger.
Lucas Scott: Hm, no stranger than you.

Peyton: So, last week... sucked. I just wanted to say thanks.
Lucas Scott: Oh, you made me a mix?
Peyton: Just trying to square my karma.
Lucas Scott: Uh-huh... Does this mean we're dating?

Karen Roe: Okay. What does this dress say to you?
Lucas Scott: Uh... Beware of crazy ladies who talk to dresses.

Lucas Scott: 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.


"One Tree Hill: Are You True? (#1.3)" (2003)
Haley James: [Calling her parents] Hey, Mom it's Haley. Haley James, your daughter. Listen I'm gonna go out after work, and I'll be home. Okay? All right, bye.
Lucas Scott: Was your mom drinking?
Haley James: No, I got the machine.

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.

Karen Roe: Well, if it makes you feel any better, I called some woman a bitch the other day.
[Lucas laughs]
Karen Roe: I'm proud of you. You know that? Sometimes I wonder where you get all your strength.
Lucas Scott: Well I get that from you.
Karen Roe: Oh, I don't know about that. I haven't been on my best behavior lately.
Lucas Scott: Ah, well they don't make it easy, do they?
Karen Roe: No they don't. That doesn't mean we have to sink to their level.
Lucas Scott: Take the high road, huh? Sounds familiar. But Mom... I tried that. And I want to make you proud. I do. But there comes a certain point when you have to fight back. And I'm at that point.

Lucas Scott: [voice-over] e.e. cummings once wrote, 'To be nobody-but-yourself, in a world which is doing its best, night and day to make you everybody else... means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight... and never stop fighting.'

[the team is running into the gym for a game, Lucas sees Peyton and turns around]
Lucas Scott: Hey. Your art matters... it's what got me here.

Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Oh, I think you got the wrong car
Brooke: Nah. Don't mind me. I just have to get out of this uniform. So, uh, anyways, I'm Brooke. But you probably knew that. Can I tell you that that last shot was awesome? How'd it feel? Good, huh? You know it did.

Lucas 'Luke' Scott: [throws a can of spray paint at Nathan] You left that at the court.
Nathan Scott: I don't know what you're talking about.
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Then call it a gift. Besides, you're gonna need it to paint over your scoring title in the gym, cause I'm taking it.

Lucas: [to Nathan] I don't care what you do to me whatever you got you better bring it.


"One Tree Hill: How Can You Be Sure? (#1.19)" (2004)
Lucas: There's something I have to tell you. You should sit.
Karen Roe: Okay. I think I'll stand.
Lucas: This is gonna hurt you, Mom. And I'm sorry.
Karen Roe: What happened?
Lucas: Brooke's pregnant.
Karen Roe: [she slaps him] Oh, my God, Lucas. I'm so sorry.
Lucas: I guess I deserved that. Stupid...
[he walks off]

Karen Roe: [after finding out Brooke is pregnant, Karen has slapped Lucas] Lucas! I didn't mean it.
Lucas: I'm pretty sure you did.
Karen Roe: No! It's just - do you understand? This is *exactly* what I didn't want for you! I mean, have I been talking to myself for the last few years? You have so much left to do in life! So does Brooke. Oh God, you're both just too young for this.
Lucas: Don't cry, Mom.
Karen Roe: It's just that I'm scared for you. I can't believe this is happening.

Lucas: How close was I to not existing? Dan wanted an abortion, Mom. Why didn't you listen to him?
Karen Roe: Because I realized... I wanted you in my future.

Lucas: My dad didn't want me, okay? Not just that he didn't want to claim me. He didn't want me to be born. Now I always thought that when I started a family, I'd be older and settled and I'd be...
Brooke: In love?
Lucas: Yeah. But so did my mom.
Brooke: Lucas...
Lucas: No, look - this whole thing scares the hell outta me, okay? But whatever you decide to do, I'll be there. And if you're not ready, then you're not ready, but if you wanna have this baby - then so do I, and whatever it takes for me to be a good father, I'll be there. Always. I promise you. I won't let you down.

Brooke: I lied.
Lucas: What?
Brooke: I'm not pregnant.
Lucas: Wha - But I saw the test.
Brooke: I know. And when the doctor called, he said I wasn't pregnant. He said that can happen.
Lucas: Okay, no-no-no-no no. I-I-I was standing right there when he called.
Brooke: And you had just called me a slut.
Lucas: So you lied to me to punish me? How could you do that?
Brooke: How could you cheat on me with my best friend?
Lucas: Brooke, I never meant to hurt you.
Brooke: That doesn't really matter, Lucas. 'Cause in the end it all hurts just the same.

Brooke: How could you cheat on me with my best friend?
Lucas Scott: Brooke, I never meant to hurt you.
Brooke: That doesn't really matter, Lucas. 'Cause in the end it all hurts just the same.

Haley James: So uh, I gotta ask you kind of a personal question... just out of curiosity. How many times per minute do you guys think about sex?
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Per minute?
Haley James: Yeah, Elle magazine said that guys think about sex like every 30 seconds
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: You're thinking about having sex with him!
[Nathan]
Haley James: Shhh...
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: [whispers] Sorry.
Haley James: Ok, it just, it keeps coming up...
[Lucas looks at her in disbelief]
Haley James: sorry, wrong words.


"One Tree Hill: The Same Deep Water as You (#4.1)" (2006)
Karen Roe: I am all for living life to the fullest, but can this day just be over already?
Lucas Scott: Mom, you loved Dan, right? In high school?
Karen Roe: Oddly, yes.
Lucas Scott: Okay, I know you probably can't answer this for me, but what did you do when he didn't love you back? How did you get over it?
Karen Roe: When I do, I'll get back to you.

Lucas Scott: [voiceover] My name is Lucas Scott. I'm a senior at Tree Hill High School. I play basketball - at least I used to. I have a girlfriend - at least I used to. And I have a best friend. Tree Hill is just a place somewhere in the world. Maybe it's a lot like your world, maybe it's nothing like it. But if you look closer, you might see someone like you. Someone trying to find their way. Someone trying to find their place. Someone trying to find their self. Sometimes it seems like you are the only one in the world who's struggling, who's frustrated, unsatisfied, barely getting by. But that feeling's a lie. And if you just hold on, just find the courage to face it all for another day, someone or something will find you and make it all okay. Because we all need a little help sometimes-someone to helps us hear the music in their world, to remind us that it won't always be this way. That someone is out there. And that someone will find you

Lucas Scott: [voiceover] Dan Scott is many things: the mayor of Tree Hill, the once great hight school basketball player and Nathan's father. He's also my father, but he never claimed me. Believe it or not, I got the better end of the deal. I was instead raised by my mom with the help of my Uncle Keith, until Keith's life was taken

Lucas Scott: [voiceover] The things that take 14 minutes: boiling an ostrich egg, Michael Jackson's Thriller video, it also takes 14 minutes to get from the Melina Bridge to Tree Hill Hospital. In those 14 minutes, three lives hung in the balance. For the rest of us there was nothing to do but wait. I guess that's why they call it the waiting room.

Brooke Davis: I love you, Lucas, and I probably always will... but we go days without having a meaningful conversation... and I used to miss you so much when that happened... but it never seemed like you missed me. And I guess because of it I stopped missing you. I mean look at today...
Lucas Scott: [Thinking] I guess I should've said something... anything... I mean, for a guy who wants to be a writer, it suddenly seemed like no words had ever been written. But when someone tells you that they somehow stopped missing you, you're pretty much screwed, no matter what you say.

Lucas Scott: Brooke kind of found out that I kissed Peyton, again.
Skills: Well, it's a good thing you're in a hospital; 'cause your sorry ass in bad shape bro.


"One Tree Hill: It Gets Worse at Night (#4.17)" (2007)
Lucas Scott: That doesn't change the fact that we haven't seen a single car pass by since we've stopped.
Brooke Davis: Uh...
Lucas Scott: Until now.
[sees the bus coming]
Nathan Scott: That's a bus.
Brooke Davis: No, that's a tour bus.
Peyton Sawyer: Oh, please be The Foo Fighters!
Skills: Please be Kanye!
Chris Keller: [gets off the bus] Well, well.
Haley James Scott: Stupid Elvis Sandwhich!

Lucas Scott: How long has that light been on?
Brooke Davis: Just a little while but its kind of a pretty color and i liked it.
Brooke Davis: Bad Call?
Nathan Scott: Ha
[car makes funny sound]
Brooke Davis: bad call

Skills: So what it's been about a week since Mouth skipped town with Rachel. Now all of a sudden I get this cryptic message.
Lucas Scott: Okay like what, a voice mail?
Skills: Text, actually. Check it out.
Lucas Scott: "Honey Grove, Texas. Please come. Need ass?"
Skills: Yeah I was thinking he would've typed assistance, but his battery died.
Lucas Scott: Well then why didn't he just write help? Need help?
Skills: Maybe he need ass.

Haley James Scott: Okay, Brooke, freshman year. Lance Bass? Really?
Brooke Davis: He was cute, okay?
Nathan Scott: I'm not sure I'd go there, Hales. Check this out. "Luke, stay cool forever! Haley."
Haley James Scott: So, what's wrong with that?
Lucas Scott: You think that's bad? Check this out. Peyton wrote to me in my sophomore yearbook... "Peyton Sawyer".

Haley James Scott: Okay, how about this one? "Lucas, you know you want me! Taylor James."
Lucas Scott: I wonder what she wrote in Nathan's yearbook.

[the girls on the prom are trying to get to know the crashing people from Tree Hill]
Lucas Scott: So nobody has a fatal heart condition and a father who was purposely set on fire?
[the girls are shaking their heads]
Nathan Scott: You probably have classmates who are married, right? Wife's pregnant? Got married as juniors?
[the girls are shaking their heads again]
Brooke Davis: I started the clothing line after Peyton and I shoplifted my designs back and got arrested.
Prom Student: Arrested? What did your parents say?
Brooke Davis: Oh, I haven't seen my parents in, like, a year. I live with my friend Rachel. She's so funny. She's had all this plastic surgery, and she just got suspended, and... Now she's kind of missing.
[the girls looks at her in sympathy]
Marvin 'Mouth' McFadden: You ever had your heart broken?
Prom Student: Yeah, I think that happens everywhere.


"One Tree Hill: Truth Doesn't Make a Noise (#2.2)" (2004)
Lucas Scott: What do you think?
[Points around the room]
Lucas Scott: I was thinking bar right over there, then some lights... DJ right over here... And then, the three of us trying to be friends right about, um, well, over there.
[Points at where they are standing]
Brooke: Okay... Totally confused over... here.
[Points at herself and Peyton]

Haley James Scott: Excellent right back at you, BIL.
Lucas Scott: [laughs] Okay, I've been gone for, what, a few days, and you already forgotten my name? Who's Bill?
Haley James Scott: [links arms with him] B-I-L! Brother In Law. That's you!
Lucas Scott: [jokingly] Oh-ho! Crap... I'm related to you?

[Lucas puts his arm around Haley as Nathan comes in the picture]
Nathan Scott: [jokingly] Hey! Get your own wife.
Lucas Scott: [laughs] Okay, that just sounds weird.

Lucas Scott: [sees a handsome guy at the party] Peyton, right?
Really Cute Guy: How did you know?
Lucas Scott: Lucky guess...

Lucas Scott: You didn't read it, did you? The letter.
Brooke: Yeah! Sure.
Peyton: Absolutely.
Lucas Scott: Really? So the threesome with the hot fude didn't bother you, huh?
Brooke: I knew we should have read that letter.

Lucas Scott: I think everybody knows that Nathan and I got off to a pretty sketchy start. Nathan, mutual hatred sound about right?
Nathan Scott: Worse.
[Many of the guests laughs]
Lucas Scott: Yeah... You see, then a funny thing happened. Haley. She showed me that you can find the good in everybody, if you just give them a chance. The benefit of the doubt. Sometimes, people disappoint you. Sometimes they surprise you. But you never really get to know them, until you listen for what's in their hearts. And that's what Haley did for Nathan. That's what we should do for them. So for you sceptics out there, prepare to be surprised. So this is to my brother... and my little sis... in-law, and in love.
[People raise their glasses]


"One Tree Hill: Don't Dream It's Over (#5.6)" (2008)
Lindsey: [to Lucas, after Peyton walks away] What was that about?
Lucas Scott: She had a rent check for me. I didn't take it
Lindsey: Why not?
Lucas Scott: I don't feel right accepting money from Peyton, alright, we've been friends for too long.
Lindsey: Hate to break it to you but most guys aren't friends with their ex's.
Lucas Scott: Peyton's different. Look, I know I said we could try avoiding her but maybe we should work this thing out. At least say something to her?
Lindsey: Fine. Let's go.
[approaching Peyton]
Lindsey: You know when you said you don't like me? Well I don't like you either.
[to Lucas]
Lindsey: There, I said something.

Lucas Scott: [to Nathan] Why are women so screwed up?
Nathan Scott: Let me guess. Peyton?
Lucas Scott: How did you know?
Nathan Scott: When she sent you a drink with a cheque in it?

Lucas Scott: [approaching Lindsay] Hey, I've been looking for you everywhere!
Lindsey: Well, if you keep looking next to Peyton you're never gonna find me. But I guess sneaking around with her at Tric is your new thing...
Lucas Scott: OK, what's going on with you?
Lindsey: Why'd you sneak over here the other night? I saw your car parked outside.
Lucas Scott: So that's why you've been so upset. Why didn't you tell me sooner?
Lindsey: No, Luke. You should have told ME.
Lucas Scott: I didn't sneak here. I wasn't even planning on coming here. I saw the light on and I tried to convince my friend to be nicer to the girl that I love.
Lindsey: Right... See, I'm still trying to figure out which is which.

Lucas Scott: [approaching Brooke] Brooke, hey, can you do me a favor?
Brooke Davis: Well if it involves drinking and flirting with a hot bartender then yes, I can.
Lucas Scott: Now, you like Peyton and Lindsay, right?
Brooke Davis: What kind of favor is this?

Peyton Sawyer: [Lucas entering her office] Oh, God, you know, just rip up the cheque, I'm moving offices anyway.
Lucas Scott: Let me ask you something. Do you have an alarm in your head that goes off every time I'm happy with someone else?
[shouting]
Lucas Scott: What do you want from me? I flied to L.A., I asked you to marry me, you said 'No' so I moved on. Why haven't you?
Peyton Sawyer: 'Cause I should have said 'Yes'.

Lucas Scott: Lindsay, Peyton's got a big heart.
Lindsey: Yeah, to go along with her big mouth.


"One Tree Hill: Just Watch the Fireworks (#3.15)" (2006)
Nathan Scott: Do you ever think we can have a function in this town that doesn't end up in a brawl?
Lucas Eugene Scott: Why? Getting a little too "Outsiders" for you?
Nathan Scott: I never saw it.
Lucas Eugene Scott: Well, you would have been one of the bad guys.
Nathan Scott: Oh sh*t!
Lucas Eugene Scott: You know... about what I said in the time capsule... with Dan.
Nathan Scott: Whatever man... We're cool!

Haley James: What'd you say to Hooter girl when she made her topless debut?
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: I told her she looked beautiful.

Haley James Scott: What'd you say to Hooter girl when she made her topless debut?
Lucas Eugene Scott: I told her she looked beautiful.

Lucas Eugene Scott: Great, it's gone global.
Haley James Scott: Yeah, at least now the whole world knows all the nice things you said about me to go along all the crappy things Nathan said about me.

Lucas Eugene Scott: [in the time capsule] I need to get closer to my father. Because if I can get closer to him, maybe I can find a way to beat him. Once and for all. And set the people that I love, free. I just hope I have the strength to tear him down for good.

Lucas Eugene Scott: [in the time capsule, about Haley] Wish I could talk to her about it, I mean, not to change her mind, or to tell her what to do, but just to say I love you. And I miss you. Just to say goodbye.


"One Tree Hill: Good News for People Who Love Bad News (#4.3)" (2006)
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: You ever look at a picture of yourself and see a stranger in the background? It makes you wonder how many strangers have pictures of you. How many moments of other people's lives have we been in? Were we a part of someone's life when their dream came true? Or were we there when their dreams died? Did we keep trying to get in, as if we were somehow destined to be there? Or did the shock take us by surprise? Just think, you'd be a big part of someone else's life... and not even know it.

Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Trade you my juice box for your bag of chips. And I'll throw in a cookie.
Brooke Davis: Peyton must really need chips.
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Okay, how can I make this any clearer? There is nothing going on between me and Peyton.
Brooke Davis: And there's nothing going on between us, so why are you still here?

Lucas 'Luke' Scott: You told me to fight for you, and I did. You never fought for me.
Brooke Davis: And I'm not going to.
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Okay... I guess I was wrong... I'm not the guy for you Brooke Davis.

Haley James Scott: Hey, Luke, will you promise me something? No matter what happens you and I will always be friends
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: [in a mocking tone] Always... and forever.

Skills: Yo! Look, I just gotta thank the brother who helped a brother get on the team, and a brother who helped a brother score once he got there.
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: I lost track; which one am I, again?


"One Tree Hill: The Worst Day Since Yesterday (#3.8)" (2005)
Nathan Scott: I heard about what happened Saturday night.
Lucas Scott: And?
Nathan Scott: And if all this stuff about Brooke is gonna make you play any worse, you should just take yourself out of the game right now.
Lucas Scott: Thanks for your concern, but how about you mind your own business?
Nathan Scott: The game *is* my business, all right? And I don't want you screwing it up over some chick.
Lucas Scott: Heh. You're one to talk.
Nathan Scott: Yeah, I am. See, my game's gotten better; your game sucks. Fix it.
Lucas Scott: Your marriage sucks. Fix it.
Nathan Scott: I'll tell you what. I'll give you the same brilliant advice that you gave me when Chris kissed Haley.
[Nathan copies Lucas' voice and signature squint]
Nathan Scott: "Just forgive her, man. She loves you."
[Lucas glares at Nathan]
Nathan Scott: Doesn't help much, does it?

Lucas 'Luke' Scott: [to Peyton] Hey I thought about it and I'm gonna talk to Brooke.
[Lucas looks over at Brookes empty desk]
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Hey Brooke!

Chris Keller: [Chris is about to sing the national anthem] This goes out to all your girlfriends, You know who you are.
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: I hate that guy.

Lucas 'Luke' Scott: I'm open Nathan. BALL!
Nathan Scott: [Nathan throws the ball and Lucas moves so the ball hits Chris] The best pick you made all night.

Lucas Scott: Robert Louis Stevenson wrote: ''You cannot run away from weakness; you must some time fight it out or perish; and if that be so, why not now, and where you stand?''.


"One Tree Hill: Unopened Letter to the World (#2.15)" (2005)
Lucas Scott: My best friend, Haley, left town recently. And it's... been hard. You know... until this year, it's-it's always been us against the world. We pretty much grew up together and... now she's just gone. You know, I... I understand the leaving part. Trust me... I just wish she woulda called me; before she left. I wish... I coulda talked to her about it. I mean, not to change her mind... or to tell her what to do, but... just to say I love you... and I miss you. Just to say goodbye.

Lucas Scott: Dan wanted revenge on Keith. That's why I'm staying with him.
Nathan Scott: Revenge for what?
Lucas Scott: Keith slept with your mom.
[Nathan laughs]
Lucas Scott: It's true.
Nathan Scott: Course it is! Nobody's faithful anymore, nobody can be trusted.
Lucas Scott: Yeah, well, Dan also hired Jules to make Keith fall in love with her.
Nathan Scott: It's outstanding! What else you got?
Lucas Scott: That's it. Stay with Dan... Keith and Jules get to be happy.
Nathan Scott: Yeah, 'till she sings a duet... and goes on tour.
Lucas Scott: She's got a dream, Nate.
Nathan Scott: No... no, she left to be with Chris. She kissed him, before she left.
Lucas Scott: I'm sorry.
Nathan Scott: Well, that's what she said when I called her.
Lucas Scott: I thought you said...
Nathan Scott: I lied!... She said she was sorry. Said she loved me and it wasn't about Chris. She just... needs some time to figure everything out. You believe that? Because, if I love her... and if she loves me, what's there to figure out?

Lucas Scott: My brother's been going through a tough time lately. I wish there was more I could do to help him. I mean, just getting along is kinda new to us. But I guess that's how brothers are. I also wish I could make things easier for my mom. I mean, even though it's been a tough year for us, I want her to be happy more than anything. But that doesn't change the fact that I need to get closer to my father. Because if I can get closer to him, maybe I can find a way to beat him, once and for all. And set all the people that I love free. I just hope I have the strength to tear him down for good.

Lucas 'Luke' Scott: [on the time capsule] My brothers been going through a tough time lately, I wish there was more I could do to help him. I mean just getting along is kind of new to us, but I guess that's how brothers are better to each other and worse to each other than anyone else.


"One Tree Hill: All Tomorrow's Parties (#3.14)" (2006)
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: [voiceover] Most of our life is a series of images that pass us by like towns on the highway. But sometimes a moment stuns us as it happens and we know that this instant is more than a fleeting image. We know that this moment, every part of it, will live on forever.

Lucas Eugene Scott: You know, Peyton, you can learn a lot from Ellie. She struck me as tough.
Peyton Elizabeth Sawyer: Yeah.
Lucas Eugene Scott: And that's important. But, I also think you can learn a lot from her mistakes. Don't live your life alone. Let us in.

Peyton Elizabeth Sawyer: How drunk was I last night?
Lucas Eugene Scott: Drunk enough to puke six times.
Peyton Elizabeth Sawyer: Lemme guess. Rachel?
Lucas Eugene Scott: Yeah. Rachel's probably not the best person to use the buddy system with.
Peyton Elizabeth Sawyer: I feel like you're always rescuing me. Also like there's a giant elephant standing on my head.

Lucas Eugene Scott: Are you drunk?
Peyton Elizabeth Sawyer: Are you wearing eye shadow?


"One Tree Hill: I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning (#2.19)" (2005)
Lucas Eugene Scott: Stephen King once wrote: Time takes it all. Whether you want it to or not. Time takes it all, time bears it away...and in the end, there is only darkness. Sometimes we find others in that darkness. And sometimes we lose them there again.

Jarrett Green: So, it's like your mom's Cooper's sister?
Lucas Eugene Scott: No, my mom slept with Cooper's sister's husband.
Jarrett Green: Okay. Whatever that means. Sounds messed up.
Lucas Eugene Scott: It is.

Lucas Eugene Scott: So, Daytona, how long has it been since last time you've seen Nate?
Daytona Green: Well, I think last time I saw him, he was shorter than me.
Lucas Eugene Scott: [laughs]
Nathan Scott: By, like, half an inch.
Daytona Green: Whatever, Shorty.

Lucas Eugene Scott: Joseph Conrad once wrote: "Who knows what true happiness is, not the conventional word... but the naked terror. To the lonely themselves, that wears a mask, the most miserable outcast hugs some memory... or some illusion."


"One Tree Hill: The Leavers Dance (#2.23)" (2005)
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: I did something tonight, and I can't take it back.

Brooke: LUCAS! Do not make me join you!
Lucas Scott: Uh, a little privacy here.
Brooke: No, you've been in the shower forever! By the time I even get in the water it's gonna be...
[Checks water]
Brooke: cold! Are you taking a cold shower?
Lucas Scott: No, the hot water...
Brooke: Gross! You are! You know what? When you have you're next wet dream, tell Peyton I said 'Hi'. Eww!

Brooke Davis: Lucas! Do not make me come in there with you!
Lucas Scott: Uhh. I little privacy here.
Brooke Davis: No. You have been in there forever. By the time I get in there the waters gunna be...
Brooke Davis: [sticks hand in the shower]
Brooke Davis: Cold! Are you taking a cold shower?
Lucas Scott: No, the hot water...
Brooke Davis: Gross you are. You know what next wet dream, tell Peyton I say 'Hi!' Ew!

Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Tennessee Williams once wrote: ''We all live in a house on fire, no fire department to call; no way out, just the upstairs window to look out of while the fire burns the house down with us trapped, locked in it''.


"One Tree Hill: The Games That Play Us (#1.22)" (2004)
Haley James: Lucas,Luke I'm scared, Luke this is so not cool come out here right now, LUCAS SCOTT.
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Boogie Man
[Haley punches Lucas in the stomach]
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: .Damn it Haley, jees your gonna kill me . You know Hoodinie died like that.

Lucas 'Luke' Scott: I'm going to Charleston with keith
Haley James: What are you talking about?

[repeated line]
Lucas: It's worth nothing if you can't knock down the shot.

Karen Roe: So what does this dress say to you? Single and successful or married to her work?
Lucas Scott: Is this for that Justice League thing?
Karen Roe: Small Business League, and I want to look nice.
Lucas Scott: Is Keith still going as your date?
Karen Roe: It's not a date. So which dress?
Lucas Scott: Umm... black I guess.
Karen Roe: Then black it is. Keith didn't say anything to you did he?
Lucas Scott: Oohh about the date that you two aren't going on? No...
Karen Roe: Haha... good luck on your game tonight...
Lucas Scott: Yeah you too Ma.

Lucas 'Luke' Scott: I'll miss you too little brother.


"One Tree Hill: Hundred (#5.12)" (2008)
Lindsey Strauss: It was a comet, Luke. The boy saw a comet.
Lucas Scott: Okay...
Lindsey Strauss: The boy saw the comet and felt as though his life had meaning. And when it went away, he waited his entire life for it to come back to him.
Lucas Scott: Lindsey I love you, but this isn't the time for a book review okay?
Lindsey Strauss: What was the first day you ever talked to Peyton?
Lucas Scott: Lindsey...
Lindsey Strauss: Please.
Lucas Scott: Her car broke down.
Lindsey Strauss: The boy saw the comet and suddenly his life had meaning. I'm sorry Lucas, I can't marry you.

Lucas Scott: Thanks.

Lucas Scott: My jokes aren't stupid.
Nathan Scott: My jokes aren't stupid. That's what you think.


"One Tree Hill: Things I Forgot at Birth (#4.2)" (2006)
Lucas Scott: [voiceover] There are moments in our lives when we find ourselves at a crossroads. Afraid. Confused. Without a roadmap. The choices we make in those moments can define the rest of our days. Of course, when faced with the unknown, most of us prefer to turn around and go back. But once in a while people push on to something better. Something found just beyond the pain of going it alone. And just beyond the bravery and courage it takes to let someone in. Or to give someone a second chance. Something beyond the quiet persistence of a dream. Because it's only when you're tested, that you truly discover who you are. And it's only when you're tested, that you discover who you can be. The person you want to be does exist. Somewhere on the otherside of hard work and faith and belief... and beyond the heartache and fear of what lies ahead.

Lucas Scott: You know I use to watch you?
Peyton Sawyer: When?
Lucas Scott: Well Freshman year, Softmore year, both summers actually.
Peyton Sawyer: Stop it!
Peyton Sawyer: [a slight pause, both Peyton and Lucas smile] What did you watch?
Lucas Scott: Your legs mostly.
Peyton Sawyer: What?
Lucas Scott: No I'm serious. You know from up close they're a little chickeny.
Peyton Sawyer: Shut up!
[Hits Lucas playfully]
Lucas Scott: But from where I was hiding, they were pretty awesome.

Peyton Sawyer: Well I have a question to ask you but before you give me an answer, I just want you to know there is a point to it okay?
Lucas Scott: Okay.
Peyton Sawyer: All right, ummm, imagine a future moment in your life where all your dreams come true. You know, it's the greatest moment in your life and you get to experience it with one person. Who's standing next to you?
Lucas Scott: Mmm, Kate Bosworth.
Peyton Sawyer: Shut up, I'm serious!
Lucas Scott: Ohh, so am I.


"One Tree Hill: Near Wild Heaven (#2.3)" (2004)
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: [after 'Dim' Tim opens the door to him and looks disappointed] What's wrong with Dim?
Nathan Scott: Don't take it personally, he thought you were the stripper.
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: We prefer to be called exotic dancers.

Tim Smith: [to Nathan] Are you sure you know this guy?
Nathan Scott: He works with me at Hot & Twisted
[pretzel stand at the mall]
Nathan's colleague: Great, even the losers don't know me.
Tim Smith: Just read the damn quiz.
Nathan's colleague: [sigh] When your boyfriend kisses you, he a:...
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: What the hell are you reading?
Tim Smith: Cosmo Girl, go on...
Nathan's colleague: When your boyfriend kisses you, he a: looks deeply into your eyes, b: closes his eyes, c: cradles your head softly, d: unhooks your bra.
Tim Smith: It's D, it's definitley D. You go for the bra.
Nathan Scott: Now, Tim, you realise you're supposed to be answering as a girl?
Tim Smith: I know, and i'd want a boyfriend who isn't afraid to go under my shirt!
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: And hopefully someday you'll find him.

Tim Smith: She's here! Stripper time!
[Runs to open the door. Lucas stands behind it]
Tim Smith: Oh, it's just you.
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Not the thrill it used to be, huh?


"One Tree Hill: The Tide That Left and Never Came Back (#2.22)" (2005)
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: I don't see why you get off by screwing things up!
Chris Keller: How? By having sex with Haley?
[Lucas looks shocked]
Chris Keller: Because we haven't done that.

Brooke: George Bernard Shaw once wrote: "There are two tragedies in life. One is to lose your heart's desire. The other is to gain it." Clearly, Shaw had his heart broken once or twice.
Nathan Scott: As far as I'm concerned, Shaw was a punk. Cause you know what? Tragedies happen. What are you gonna do, give up? Quit? No. I realize now that when your heart breaks, you got to fight like hell to make sure your still alive. Because you are. And that pain you feel? That's life. The confusion and fear? That's there to remind you, that somewhere out there is something better, and that something is worth fighting for.
Haley James: This year, I got everything I wanted and everything I wished for. But in a way, I lost even more.
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Shaw was right. As we strain to grasp the things we desire, the things we think will make our lives better: money, popularity, fame... we ignore what truly matters, the simple things, like friendship, family, love. The things we probably already had.
Mouth McFadden: So Mr. Shaw thinks that getting your heart's desire is a tragedy? I say he's wrong. I mean, clearly Shaw never kissed Erica Marsh.
Peyton Elizabeth Sawyer: Yes, losing your heart's desire is tragic. But gaining your heart's desire? That's all you can hope for. This year I wished for love... to immerse myself in someone else and to wake a heart long afraid to feel. My wish was granted. And if having that is tragic, then give me tragedy. Because I wouldn't give it back for the world.

Lucas 'Luke' Scott: And Hansel said to Gretal: Let us drop these bread crumbs, so that together we find our way home, because losing our way would be the most cruel of things." This year I lost my way.
Nathan Scott: And losing your way on a journey is unfortunate. But losing your reason for the journey... is a fate more cruel.
Peyton Elizabeth Sawyer: The journey lasted eight months. Sometimes I traveled alone. Sometimes there were others who took the wheel, and took my heart. But when the destination was reached, it wasn't me who'd arrived. It wasn't me at all.
Brooke: And once you lose yourself, you have two choices. Find the person you used to be, or lose that person completely.
Mouth McFadden: Because sometimes, you have to step outside of the person you've been, and remember the person you were meant to be. The person you wanted to be. The person you are.


"One Tree Hill: All of a Sudden I Miss Everyone (#4.21)" (2007)
Brooke: [reads from Lucas's book] She was fiercely independant. Brooke Davis. Brilliant, and beautiful, and brave. In 2 years she had grown more than anyone I had ever known. Brooke Davis is going to change the world someday. And I'm not sure she even knows it.
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Your gonna do great, Brooke. The world doesn't stand a chance.
Brooke: Thank you...

Nathan Scott: Sure your up for this old man?
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: I can do this forever little brother

"One Tree Hill: Where Did You Sleep Last Night? (#4.6)" (2006)
Lucas Scott: When life comes rushing at you from out of the darkness, who will you choose to face it with? Will it be someone you trust? Will they be wise? And will their love for you help them to guide you to the light? Or will they lose their way in the darkness. Will they make noble choices or will that person be someone untested? Someone new? Life comes rushing at you from out of the darkness. When it does - is there someone in your life you can count on? Someone who'll watch over you when you stumble and fall and in that moment give you the strenght to face your fears alone.

Skills: So let me get this straight, you and Peyton just friends right?
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Uh-huh...
Skills: I wish I had friends like that.

Lucas Scott: [about her sketch] Pretty dark, don't you think?
Peyton Sawyer: I love you Luke, but I've chosen darkness.


"One Tree Hill: When It Isn't Like It Should Be (#3.18)" (2006)
[Brooke and Lucas are standing outside Rachel's cabin]
Brooke Davis: Oh, okay, what do you wanna show me? It's freezing out here!
[Lucas is pulling Haley's wedding ring out from his pocket]
Lucas Scott: This...
Brooke Davis: Are you proposing to me? Lucas, this is really Naley...
Lucas Scott: No, no, no, no... This is Haley's ring. Nathan stole it. I'm just holding on to it until he proposes to her again tomorrow.
Brooke Davis: Like a re-proposal? She's already had one.
Lucas Scott: Well, Nathan wants to have this big, fancy wedding.
Brooke Davis: Awww... That is SO romantic!
Haley James: [imitates Brooke] Awww...
[Haley comes out to Lucas and Brooke]
Haley James: ...What is so romantic? Oh, is that my ring?
Lucas Scott: Yeah... I... found it. Surprise.
Haley James: Oh my God! Thank you! Where did you find this?
Lucas Scott: Uh... It was on the... thing... next to the other... thing.
Haley James: I've been looking for this everywhere! Thank you so much! You're not gonna tell Nathan, are you?
Lucas Scott: Nope. I wouldn't do that.
Haley James: Thank you! You're the best!
[Haley kisses him on the cheek and walks happily away. Lucas smiles, resigned]
Lucas Scott: Now I'm pretty much dead...
Brooke Davis: Yeah...
Lucas Scott: Yeah...
Brooke Davis: Yeah.

Lucas Scott: Henry James wrote:"Be not afraid of life believe that life is worth living and your belief will create the fact."

Lucas Scott: John Steinbeck once wrote:''change comes like a little wind that ruffles the curtains at dawn, and it comes like the stealthy perfume of wildflowers hidden in the grass."


"One Tree Hill: Crash Into You (#1.4)" (2003)
Lucas Scott: I don't get you. You want to express yourself through your art but you don't want anyone to know it's you...
Peyton Sawyer: I guess I'm just a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside a bitch...
Lucas Scott: Or just a tormented artist...

Brooke Davis: [Brooke, Peyton, Natha, Johnny "Vegas" and others are sitting/standing around a table] Hey Lucas.
[Lucas, who was looking in the refrigerator, turns around]
Brooke Davis: Come play.
Lucas Scott: What the game?
Brooke Davis: "I've never".
Johnny 'Vegas' Norris: [after a pause] And yet apparently you have.
Brooke Davis: [after a few "oohs"; laughing] Shut up Vegas!

Haley James: Do you think he maybe - I mean, just maybe - he's had a change of heart?
Lucas Scott: [snorts] Requires a heart.


"One Tree Hill: Life in a Glass House (#1.7)" (2003)
Haley James: You're not gonna like this. In fact, you're gonna hate this. But I feel that I should tell you in the interest of full friendship disclosure.
Lucas Scott: [chuckles] Yeah, right. What could be worse than you tutoring Nathan, huh?
[Haley looks guiltily at him and sighs. Lucas stops smiling]

Peyton Sawyer: So, this is Lucas. The boy I have been telling you about. Look what he's done, he got me smiling. Can you believe it?
Lucas Scott: Hey Mrs. Sawyer. I just want you to know that Peyton is the best thing I have in my life. I wouldn't even be here if it wasn't for her.
Peyton Sawyer: Like wise.

Lucas Scott: [voiceover] 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.

"One Tree Hill: I Love You But I've Chosen Darkness (#4.5)" (2006)
Detective: Listen, they filled me in on this whole long-lost-brother scenario. What else can you give me?

Detective: You carried her out, Peyton Sawyer. You're the one who carried her out of the school
Lucas Scott: Yeah.
Detective: Ok, we'll bring him in.

Lucas Scott: Peyton.
Peyton Sawyer: And he's still out there.
Lucas Scott: They'll find him, ok? The detectives said they'll call when they do and then we'll finally have some answers. Until then, you're safe with me, I promise!
Peyton Sawyer: You're always saving me.
[Lucas smiles]
Peyton Sawyer: Ok, you can turn around.
Lucas Scott: [Turns around and sees Peyton in her cheerleader's uniform] Woah! Is this your way of saying thank you?
Peyton Sawyer: Nice try! A few of the cheerleaders have to be at Nathan's press conference.
Lucas Scott: Oh wow! I forgot about that. Wouldn't you be safer just to avoid the whole thing?
Peyton Sawyer: No, I'm not gonna hide out because of Derek. No way.
Lucas Scott: Actually I meant because Brooke might be there.

Lucas Scott: Kahlil Gibran once wrote: "Your reason and your passion are your rudder and sails of your seafaring soul. If either be broken, you could but toss and drift or else be held at a standstill amid seas. For reason, running alone, is a force confining. And passion, unattended, is a flame that burns to its own destruction."

Lucas Scott: Remember tonight, for it is the beginning of always. A promise. Like a reward for persisting through life so long alone. A belief in each other and the possibility of love. A decision to ignore, simply rise above the pain of the past. A covenant, which at once binds two souls and yet severs prior ties. A celebration of the chance taken and the challenge that lies ahead. For two will always be stronger than one, like a team braced against the tempest civil world. And love will always be the guiding force in our lives. For tonight is mere formality. Only an announcement to the world of feelings long held. Promises made long ago. In the sacred spaces of our hearts.

Lucas Scott: Rambo was cool!

Guidance Counselor: Sounds like he really cares about you.
Lucas Scott: Yeah, he's like a father to me.


"One Tree Hill: You Can't Always Get What You Want (#2.4)" (2004)

You're the one I want next to me if they don't. As long as I have you nothing else matters.


"One Tree Hill: With Tired Eyes, Tired Minds, Tired Souls, We Slept (#3.16)" (2006)
Lucas Scott: Does this darkness have a name? This cruelty, this hatred, how did it find us? Did it steal into our lives or did we seek it out and embrace it? What happened to us that we now send our children into the world like we send young men to war, hoping for their safe return, but knowing that some would be lost along the way. When did we lose our way? Consumed by the shadows. Swallowed whole by the darkness. Does this darkness have a name? Is it your name?

Lucas Scott: Your art matters. It's what got me here.
Peyton Sawyer: Yeah... it's like you touched my soul. And... a few days ago I was ready to quit again... but you saved me, with the words you wrote about me in your novel. So, if you're struggling to write the next one... you should know... that your art matters, Lucas. It's what got me here.

Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Yeah, well it isn't very nice!
Keith Scott: Not taking your pills wasn't either.
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Yes! I know that, but you don't have to call me stupid. So what if I don't wake up?

"One Tree Hill: The Trick Is to Keep Breathing (#2.9)" (2004)
Brooke Davis: Why does everybody lie? You know, the bad guys lie to get in your bed, and the good guys lie to get into your heart. And I'm the idiot who falls for it every time
Lucas Scott: Brooke, you are not an idiot. Not even close. You know who you are, most people don't you know. That's why they lie. They are afraid people might find out who they are before they figure it out themselves.

Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Regret comes in all shapes and sizes. Some are small , like when we do a bad thing, for a good reason. Some are bigger, like when we let down a friend. Some of us escape the pangs of regret by making the right choice. Some of us have little time for regret, because we're looking forward to the future. Sometimes we have to fight to come to terms with the past. And sometimes we bury our regret, by promising to change our ways. But our biggest regrets are not for the things we did... but the things we didn't do. The things we didn't say that could save someone we care about. Especially when we can see the dark storm that's headed their way.

"One Tree Hill: Its Alright Ma (I'm Only Bleeding) (#5.4)" (2008)
Lucas Scott: Much as some of us fight it, our parents have a mystical hold over us, the power to affect our thoughts and emotions the way only they can. It's a bond that changes over time, but doesn't diminish, even if they're half a world away, or in another world entirely. It's a power we never fully understand. We're left only to wonder that when our time comes, what kind of hold will we have on our children?
