Quotes

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.

Mouth: The basket counts, and it's 14-12, game point for Nathan. He could win it all, right here.

[Nathan comes forward and passes Lucas]

Mouth: Nathan for the win.

[Nathan is about to set the ball in the basket, but Lucas blocks him in the last moment]

Mouth: Holy crap, did you see that? Someday, men will write stories about that block. Children will be named after it. Argentinean women will weep for it.

Keith Scott: I'll tell you why. When I was a kid, my father took me to Raleigh to see David Thompson play. I was 9 years old. I couldn't have cared less about basketball. But when Thompson stepped on the court, he was so young, so quick, and just so graceful that I was mesmerized. I couldn't take my eyes off him until late in the game, and I look up at my dad, and he's got tears in his eyes. 14,000 strangers and my father's crying because he's so beautiful. He played with such poetry that he made us feel like we were a part of it. You have a gift, Luke, and it's a crime not to let people see it, to hide it in the park. It's a damn shame. That's why.

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

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.

Nathan Scott: What do I want? What do you want, man? I mean, other than my girlfriend and my spot in the lineup, huh? None of us want you on the team, man. I don't want you. The guys don't want you. My girlfriend sure as hell doesn't want you. - but here's the deal. You and me, one on one. You can name the time and place. If you win, I'll quit the team. 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.

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.

Karen Roe: Then you said something I'll never forget. You said you felt bad for the kids who never figured it out, because when they grew up and had kids of their own, there wouldn't be any gifts on Christmas morning. You're a good kid, Luke. But sometimes I feel like you're sitting out your life on account of me, and I don't want that for you. My past is not your future, okay?

Dan Scott: Yeah. And this bet tonight is that a joke, too? Or would you really quit the team? 'Cause let's be honest you have everything to lose here and nothing to gain.

Nathan: Sometimes what you call "everything," I call "nothing."

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.

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.

Haley James: "Good" is relative, considering a third of the world is starving, which does not change the fact that I am clumsy as hell. Did I tell you that i fell down today? Yeah, slipped off the curb, face down, butt in the air. Too graphic? Sorry. I'll just be quiet.
