Haley James: Do you understand the rest of your life is being shaped right now? It's up to you, you can walk out that door and fail this class and take your chances, or you could sit down, listen, and learn from somebody that's been there. Choice is yours. The rest of your life is a long time and whether you know it or not, it's being shaped right now. You can choose to blame your circumstances on fate, or bad luck, or bad choices, or you can fight back. Things aren't always gonna be fair in the real world, that's just the way it is. But for the most part you get what you give. Let me ask you all a question; what's worse, not getting everything you wished for or getting it all and finding out it's not enough. The rest of your life is being shaped right now with the dreams you chase, the choices you make, and the person you decide to be. The rest of your life is a long time and the rest of your life starts right now.
James Lucas Scott: [About the Soapbox Derby] Will Uncle Mouth be helping me?
Skills: No, Uncle Mouth got a J.O.B.
James Lucas Scott: That spells Job.
Skills: Man it was aot easier when you were three.
Brooke Davis: And Mouth who was that?
Haley James: Oh, that's Carrie. She's our new nanny.
Brooke Davis: I'm sorry, have you lost your mind? She cannot be your new nanny.
Haley James: Why?
Peyton Sawyer: Um, well, for starters, have looked at her, she is way too hot.
'Mouth' McFadden: OK, you two need to stop. Why does everything have to be about looks? You know, maybe she's a great nanny. Or a great field reporter. Shouldn't that be the point and not her looks?
'Mouth' McFadden: Besides, if Haley doesn't hire her I won't get to see her in a bikini.
Haley James: Nice...
'Mouth' McFadden: Damn, she was hot.
Peyton Sawyer: Do you remember when you first joined the Ravens? And you took al my sketches over to Thud without asking? And... do you remember what you said that night that you entered the gym for the first time?
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.
