"One Tree Hill: Unopened Letter to the World (#2.15)" (2005)
Nathan: 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.

Nathan: [on video for the time capsule] Voice mail. I hope you don't still got that crap.

Dan Scott: Nathan, how have you been?
Nathan Scott: Drunk. Bitter. Kinda like Mom.

Brooke: Thank you for coming, Nate.
Nathan Scott: Whatever, I just ran out of alcohol.

Nathan Scott: Evening officer, buy us some beer?

Nathan Scott: Evening, officer, buy us some beer?

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?


"One Tree Hill: Danny Boy (#9.11)" (2012)
Nathan Scott: [Nathan and Julian are rushing Dan to the hospital in a stolen police car, Chris is driving] Put the siren on!
Julian Baker: I've never been in a cop car before! I don't know where the siren is!
Dan Scott: [weakly] It's the switch in the middle.
Nathan Scott: [laughing at Dan's dry humor] You're gonna be OK! You're gonna be OK, Dad!

Nathan Scott: [at the hospital] Dad, why does this have to be so difficult? You're my father, so I should love you, but I've spent so much of my life hating you.
Dan Scott: [nods] I was a terrible father. I know this.
Nathan Scott: You know, I can justify a lot of screwed-up things that you've done. You bullied me because you wanted to make me tough. You tried to ruin my marriage because you wanted me to have a career. You even burned down your diner just because you wanted to see me again. But I can't understand how you could murder your own brother. And I'm worried. I'm worried that when you're gone, that's all I'll remember. And I'll still hate you for it.
Dan Scott: You should hate me for it.
Nathan Scott: So why did you do it?
Dan Scott: [shrugs] I was always jealous of Keith. Even when we were kids. I was athletic, popular, all the things that he wasn't. But still I was jealous of him. And people were drawn to Keith, and I hated him for it.
Nathan Scott: So you shot him because people liked him more?
Dan Scott: The day I shot Keith, I was in a dark place. I was convinced that he tried to kill me. I'd lost you, I divorced your mom, my life was spiraling downwards, and meanwhile Keith was building a new life with my high school sweetheart and the child I abandoned, and every time I looked at him, I felt like I was punched in the gut.
Nathan Scott: So what happened in that hallway?
Dan Scott: Keith wanted to go into the school to save that kid. So I let him go... hoping he'd get shot. Let him be the hero, as long as he was a dead hero. And then I thought 'why should he be the hero when it could be me?' So I followed him in. Jimmy was crying... and Keith was telling him 'it gets better... that pain in your heart that tells you there's no way out, it's wrong... it gets better'. And I felt like he was talking to me. And in that moment, maybe the most heroic, kindest moment of my big brother's life, I hated him. I hated him more than anyone or anything, because nothing had gotten better. That pain was still in my heart. That voice in my head saying there was no way out was right! And he was standing there lying to me! And after Jimmy died, I picked up the gun, and I aimed it at Keith, and he looked at me. And all I could think of was how everything that had gone wrong was his fault. And it wasn't gonna get better until he was gone. Just pull the trigger and it all ends!
[voice breaks]
Dan Scott: So I pulled that trigger! And it didn't end! It got worse. I'm so sorry.
[weeps]
Dan Scott: I'm so sorry! I'm so sorry.

Nathan Scott: [Dan has just flatlined] Dad, Dad?
[shakes him]
Nathan Scott: Hey, hey! Dad, come on!
Dan Scott: [Nathan rushes to get help, Keith watches him leave... Dan's eyes open] Keith.
Keith Scott: [smiles] Hi, Danny.
Dan Scott: [Dan gets up out of bed and follows Keith out of the hospital room which transitions into the hallway where Keith was murdered] What are we doing back here, Keith?
Keith Scott: I don't think either one of us ever really left, Danny.
Dan Scott: Keith, if I could take it back...
Keith Scott: Well, you can't. I think we both know that.
Dan Scott: I'm so sorry. For that day and every day before it.
Keith Scott: [nods] I know you are, Danny. And I forgive you.
Dan Scott: I took you away from everyone and everything you ever cared about. How can you just forgive me?
Keith Scott: Well, you're dead, Danny. If I can't forgive you now, when can I?
[chuckles softly]
Keith Scott: Look Danny, you've done some horrific things. You can't change that, and you can't take it back. Since then, you've done everything you could to make up for it. You've become a better man.
Dan Scott: [scoffs] I lied about my heart transplant. My book and show were a fraud. I set my own diner on fire.
Keith Scott: [smiles] Well, I didn't say you were perfect. But nobody is. But you learned what's important. You learned to put friends and family first. And you've become the selfless, kind person that I always wanted for a brother.
Dan Scott: Like the kind of brother you were. For so many years, I was so jealous of you. I should've been trying to be more like you. I should have been proud of you. I am proud of you. I love you, Keith.
Keith Scott: [puts his hand on Dan's shoulder] I love you too, Danny.
[beckons towards Dan's room]
Keith Scott: Come on.
Keith Scott: [they gaze at their grieving family standing over Dan's body] I told you the voice was wrong... it gets better.
[pause]
Keith Scott: Come on, little brother... take a walk with me.
Dan Scott: [they walk towards a mysterious light at the end of the hall] I know where you're going... but what about me?
Keith Scott: Don't worry little brother, you're my 'plus one'.
[Keith puts his hand on Dan's shoulder as they vanish into the light]

Nathan Scott: [at the hospital... Nathan is looking at a picture on Clay's phone] You have a son?
Clay Evans: Logan.
Nathan Scott: How long have I been gone?
Clay Evans: Six years, apparently.
Nathan Scott: How is it that out of the two of us, I don't have the most shocking news?
Clay Evans: That shouldn't have happened to you. It's my fault. I should have been the one to go to Europe.
Nathan Scott: No... no you shouldn't have. Dan wouldn't have come to save you. He can't stand you.
[both laugh]

Nathan Scott: [to Dan at the hospital] Some people want to see you.
Dan Scott: [smiling wryly] Is it the cops?
Nathan Scott: [returns smile] Friends and family.
Dan Scott: I didn't know I had either.

Nathan Scott: [Nathan and Julian have just arrived at the hospital with Dan... Haley has just shown up] Hi, Hales.
Haley James Scott: Say that again.
Nathan Scott: Hi, Hales.
[she rushes into his arms]

Nathan Scott: [Nathan and Chris are rushing Dan to the hospital in a stolen police car, Chris is driving] Put the siren on!
Julian Baker: I've never been in a cop car before! I don't know where the siren is!
Dan Scott: [weakly] It's the switch in the middle.
Nathan Scott: [laughing at the irony] You're gonna be OK! You're gonna be OK, Dad!

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!

Nathan Scott: [from the time capsule] People think that if you love somebody hard enough then everything is just gonna work out. People are wrong. 50 years from now, I hope you got what you wanted Haley, but getting married to you was the worst mistake of my life. Here's a little advice, never get married. In the end, you're only be miserable.

Nathan Scott: Listen, about the time capsule...
Haley James Scott: Ah, you looked beautiful. Sorry, umm... I guess you should have been there. Okay, listen I just wanted to apologize for avoiding you, avoiding this, I really just don't wanna ruin how we've been lately with these wonderful nights.

Right before the first time I had to play the tour, I got really nervous, so I ending up hiding under a desk and I just sang that song over and over again . It was kinda the only thing that would calm me down. So, What you dont have any pregame rituals?
Nathan Scott: No. What are you worried about? I mean, you got the home court advantage. You played infront of this many people before.
Haley James Scott: I know. I'm not worried about playing in front of hundreds of people, that I can do in my sleep. Im scared of playing in front of one in particular. This is my first time playing out since the tour and its my first time playing since you and I have been us again. And I saw yout time capsule and I just got scared.
Nathan Scott: Of what?
Haley James Scott: Loving it again, of you seeing me love it again. I just, I'm afraid your going to think that it somehow means that I love you less.

Nathan Scott: Don't be afraid to love it, Haley. Alright?
[slaps her a$$]
Haley James Scott: Hey!
Nathan Scott: Sorry! Pre-game ritual.
Haley James Scott: Yeah, I'll bet

If I win, you crawl back in your little hole and you remember your place in all this. Time and place, baby. Time and place.

Rachel Gatina: I know you saved my life.

Nathan Scott: You don't have to do that.
Rachel Gatina: No, I want to.
[Rachel kisses Nathan on the cheek]
Rachel Gatina: You have Cooper's eyes.

Nathan Scott: I am the kid, Hales and I'm sick of dealing with my parents' problems. If it's not my dad with a restraining order, it's my mom with a glock. They're unbelievable. My one saving grace. My one way out is if I play halfway decent in these playoffs, I can get a scholarship and I can get the hell away from both of these lunatics. Should my mom have a gun? No! But am I going to let her stupidity or anything else stand in the way of my dreams? Not a chance.
[Nathan kisses Haley's forehead]
Nathan Scott: See ya!

Haley James Scott: I need you to talk to me.
Nathan Scott: Haley, I'm not trying to shut you out, ok? I just don't understand it enough to let you in yet.
Haley James Scott: Whatever it is we are going to get through it together. I'm right here, Nathan. I'm not going anywhere.

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.

Lucas 'Luke' Scott: And hopefully someday you'll find him.

Tim Smith: Dude, smell me.
Nathan Scott: Dude, kiss my ass.
Tim Smith: No, seriously. I wanna smell nice for the... talent that's coming over.
Nathan Scott: Tim, just say the stripper.
Tim Smith: Fine, the stripper. Alright... Which one makes me smell available? I've got "Flesh" on this side and this "Frink" stuff on this side.
Nathan Scott: That's not mine.
Tim Smith: Well, it was in your bathroom.
Haley James: [walks in] Oh, Tim, what are you doing with my perfume?

"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: Did I?

Nathan Scott: I was going to surprise you when we got back. It's the London Bridge.
Haley James Scott: Thank you.
Nathan Scott: It's probably a good thing we didn't go... I mean the wedding wasn't cheap, now we have new furniture to pay for and... can't wait to get those hospital bills especially considering we don't have insurance.
Haley James Scott: It's okay. You're safe... you're home now.

Dan Scott: OK, just wait. Let's just talk.
Nathan: Bout what?
Dan Scott: I dunno. How's your wife?

Mouth: Peyton... Hayley... This is Felix.

Haley James Scott: Family style sounds perfect.

Nathan Scott: Yeah, very funny Lucas. Your ass is still sleeping on the floor.
[he walks into the bathroom where Haley's taking a bubble bath]
Haley James Scott: Surprise. I switched rooms with Lucas, I don't have to sleep on the floor do I?
Nathan Scott: How'd you manage to switch rooms?
Haley James Scott: Well believe it or not Bevin "mastermind" maskey arranged the whole thing.
Nathan Scott: [whispers] Come here. You have any room in there for me?
Haley James Scott: I thought you'd never ask.
[Nathan jumps in the bath fully clothed]

[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: 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]

[starts clapping]
Dan Scott: Don't make a scene.
Nathan: You know what, I almost killed myself for you. You know that?
Dan Scott: What are you talking about?
Nathan: Drugs dad, I took drugs for you.
Dan Scott: No, my son would never take drugs.
Nathan: Your son, its all about you isn't it dad? You know why mom kicked you out? Because you're a bully and you don't give a damn about anything other then your own ego.
Dan Scott: Will you keep your voice down?
Nathan: No. You know what you should do? You should give mom her divorce, you should do her a favor and give mom a divorce. She'll never be happy with you dad, no one will.

Haley James: Nathan, about last night?
Nathan: Hey, look it's not about sex with me all right. When you're ready, I will be too.
Haley James: Come here.
[they kiss]


"One Tree Hill: The Tide That Left and Never Came Back (#2.22)" (2005)
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: I Will Dare (#2.5)" (2004)
Nathan Scott: Well, this is it. Massage and Spa.

Nathan Scott: [bewildered] You...
Haley James Scott: It's not Brooke... it's me
Nathan Scott: Wha... How long have you known?
Haley James Scott: A few weeks...
Nathan Scott: A few weeks?
Haley James Scott: I'm sorry I didn't know how to tell you
Nathan Scott: [sits down] Huh...

Nathan Scott: As many of you know, I called this press conference today to announce where I'm planning to play basketball in college. I got a lot of great offers but it's always been my dream to play in Duke University, so ah... that's where I plan to go but... you know my father said that today will be the greatest day of my life, and you're right dad, it is but its not because of basketball, you'll see today... I learn? That my wife Haley is pregnant and it's an absolute honor to be recruited by Duke University I guest what I have to say to you today it's this. Where I play basketball IF I play basketball is no longer a decision for me to make alone, it's a decision that I make with my wife and my family's best interest to her and what I do I let you all know. And my wife couldn't be here today so... I just want it to say one thing to her: Haley, no matters what happens we faced together, I promise you, I'll never been happier, everything its gonna be okay... I love you. Thank you.

Haley James: They're called the Hicks?
Nathan: No. But they should be.


"One Tree Hill: The Desperate Kingdom of Love (#2.1)" (2004)
Nathan Scott: [Nathan walks in the apartment and sees haley crying] Haley, whats wrong?
Haley James: Um... I was just alphabetising our CD's
[Takes CD's off the table]
Haley James: and um... we don't have any doubles. Not one.
Nathan Scott: [He sees that she had taken off her wedding ring and put it onto a CD case] So what?
Haley James: So, 'Natalie Merchant' after 'NOZ' and 'Wilco' before the 'Wu-Tang Clan'?
Nathan Scott: So you listen to crummy music. I can live with that.
Haley James: [sadly] We made a mistake Nathan.
Nathan Scott: Haley...
Haley James: No. I'm-I'm not ready for this. I just, I just really wanna go home to my room
[Starts dumping CD's in boxes]
Haley James: You know, I'm not a wife; I'm not even a senior!
Nathan Scott: Haley. Haley, listen this is not a mistake.
Haley James: [crying] How can you be sure because there is nobody that thinks this thing can work.
Nathan Scott: I do.
[He picks up her wedding ring]
Nathan Scott: I promise you Haley. I will always be there for you, I will always protect you. OK?
[Haley nods slightly]
Nathan Scott: I will always protect you. Always.
[He puts the ring back onto her finger]

Nathan Scott: Someday, this beach might wash away... the oceans may dry, the sun could dim, but on that day I'll still be loving you. Always and forever. I promise you, Haley.
Haley James: I, Haley, take you Nathan, to have and to hold from this day forward. In sickness and in health. For richer or poorer. For better or worse. I promise that I will love and cherish you, and will deny all things that come between us. I make this promise for eternity. A promise that I will keep forever. Until the end of time. 'Til death do us part.


"One Tree Hill: Everyday Is a Sunday Evening (#3.20)" (2006)
Nathan Scott: Stepping up. It's a simple concept. It basically means to rise above yourself; to do a little more, to show you something special. Something like this. Lucas is gone, but that doesn't mean the season is over. As a matter of fact, I say it's just beginning. You might want to stay out of my way for a while. Life's funny sometimes; can push pretty hard like when you fall in love with someone but they forget to love you back, like when your best friend and your boyfriend leave you alone, like when you pull the trigger or light the flame and you can't take it back. Like I said, in sports they call this 'stepping up'. In life, I call it 'pushing back'.
Nathan Scott: You know it's been said that we just don't recognize the significant moments of our lives while they're happening. We grow complacent with ideas, or things or people and we take them for granted and it's usually not until that thing is about to be taken away from you that you've realized how wrong you've been that you realized how much you need it, how much you love it. God, I love this game.
Nathan Scott: You ever heard the expression 'The best things in live are free.' Well that expression is true.' Every once in a while, people step up they rise above themselves sometimes they surprise you and sometimes they fall short. Life is funny sometimes. It can push pretty hard but if you look close enough, you can find hope in the words of children, in the bars of the song and in the eyes of someone you love. And if you're lucky, if you're the luckiest person on this entire planet, the person you love decides to love you back.

Nathan Scott: Stepping up. It's a simple concept. It basically means to rise above yourself; to do a little more, to show you something special. Something like this. Lucas is gone, but that doesn't mean the season is over. As a matter of fact, I say it's just beginning. You might want to stay out of my way for a while.

"One Tree Hill: The Games That Play Us (#1.22)" (2004)
Nathan Scott: I gotta tell you, man. I never thought when we played that one-on-one game i'd be back here feeling like this.
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: like what?
Nathan Scott: Like I'm gonna miss you. You gotta do what you feel but I actually wish you weren't gonna leave. Because you're one hell of a basketball player. And because you're my brother. Take care of yourself man.
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: You take care of haley.
[they hug]
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: I'll miss you too little brother.

Nathan Scott: No regrets.


"One Tree Hill: What Comes After the Blues (#5.18)" (2008)
Haley James: [to Lucas] You know that romantic notion that all the garbage and the pain is really healing and beautiful and sort of poetic? It's not. It's just garbage and it's pain. You know what's better? Love. The day that you start thinking that love is overrated is the day that you're wrong. The only thing wrong with love and faith and belief is not having it.
Nathan Scott: The darkness doesn't have any answers, Luke.

Haley James Scott: What territory?
Nathan Scott: Popularity. This was just your coming out party.

Nathan Scott: [voiceover] The world is full of magic. You just have to believe in it.


"One Tree Hill: Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly. (#6.3)" (2008)
Nathan Scott: The thing you and I have been down similar roads. We were in the same cliques. We both felt the same pressures, same expectations. Our parents were like children. And we both grew into kind bad versions of ourselves way too fast. So I think you know and get it.
Brooke Davis: They never really gave us a chance did they? Our parents?
Nathan Scott: They didn't know how. Look the thing is you made your dream happen and I know I didn't quite get there when it was taken away from me I dealt with it alone and it was stupid and selfish and wrong. So if your mom tries to take your dream away from you and you feel that same pain like I did I've sort of been there and I'm going to be pissed off if you don't come talk to me about it.

Nathan Scott: I promise, I -
Haley James Scott: I need to know that you're going to let me in, Nathan. I mean, all the way.
Nathan Scott: I will, okay. I'll - I'll let you in if that's what it takes, I'll let you in. It's just... sometimes I'm afraid that if I do, you'll see the real me. The guy I was before you. And I'm not proud of that person, okay; the one that I used to be. But if I have to be that guy to keep you safe, then that's who I'm going to be. Look, if you want me to apologize for defending you, or for fighting back when somebody hurts you, then I can't do that - I won't do that, okay because the truth is: that's a guy I'll never be; a guy that just stands by and watches while the world hurts you. Can you understand that?
Haley James Scott: I can't...
Nathan Scott: Haley, you have to -
Haley James Scott: No, I can't keep standing on one foot. So, if there's more, I should sit down. But if you're done, then, um... just take me home 'cause I'm tired and I miss you and I love you, every version of you.

Haley James: Babysitting! I thought the extra experience and money couldn't hurt, besides I just really don't wanna be one of those mom's who's completely overwhelmed and unprepared and always screaming at her kids the way my Mom used to be. Ah, it's crazy... anyway, um the kids are coming by after school, and uh - you know, you should stop by and say "Hi."

Haley James Scott: It worked.
Nathan Scott: I played that game for you, Haley and you know what? I'd give it up for you too. Because as much as I love playing the game and the person that I am when I play it, I love being a husband and a father more.

Haley James Scott: Nathan... You know when you took those drugs before the game, when you collapsed? You made a mistake, but I know you promised yourself that if you could have a second chance you would do things differently... I know that I hurt you. But I promised myself that if I could get you to listen then, um, I would tell you that there was never a day on that tour when I didn't think you were the best part of my life.
Nathan Scott: You can't just say that Haley. Not after months of silence.
Haley James Scott: Why? It's the truth.
Nathan Scott: Really? What about the day you signed the anulment papers?

Nathan Scott: Well it beats running away.
Haley James Scott: I did call.
Nathan Scott: You called our answering machine Haley!

Nathan Scott: Well I didn't even play it. I deleted you.
Haley James Scott: Well... Then you deleted this: Um... I was being childish when I walked away from you for the tour. You gave me an ultimatum the night that I left and, uh, I fought back for all the wrong reasons. I was being stubborn... and I can't take that back, I wish that I could. Did I want to go? Yeah. I loved it, I loved every night of it. But I want you to know something Nathan. There was never a night where I loved it more than I loved you.
