  • Back on track.

    I hate Felix. I'll get that out of the way now. I wish he wasn't on the show, and I wish he wasn't dating Brooke. Moving on...

    I enjoyed Between Order and Randomness a lot. While a filler storyline, I enjoyed Brooke working for the crab restaurant. I like feisty a lot and that's exactly what she was here. The student president is a brilliant storyline for her! No Felix please. Taylor actually turns out to be a good character when she confronts Haley about Chris and even IM's him to stay away pretending to be her sister. I liked her little smile after doing some good. BUT I still hate this Chris Kellar thing and I'm actually really glad Haley said something about being jealous of what Chris has. I'm glad Nathan told Haley about losing his virginity to Taylor now instead of it dragging out.

    The way Dan is paying Jules to date Keith really is stupid and unbelievable but it was entertaining tonight and Dan was even fun being evil again. And Lucas takes the HCM test. About time, he was being pretty stubborn. I don't much care for Anna, so her going on online dating and putting 'either' didn't have much impact on me. I want her and Felix gone. I missed Peyton and Jake!!

    This season seems to be getting back on track.

  • Brooke gets a job

    Honestly the only thing I liked about this episode was Brooke getting a job and fighting for better wages and breaks for her and the girls. I'm glad Nathan told Haley about him and Taylor and I'm glad Keith and Lucas are going to take the HCM test.

    Other than that I didn't care much for the things in this episode. I hate how Haley is acting and treating Nathan. I hate what Dan is doing to Keith and I hate Jules. She doesn't deserve Keith.moreless

  • Season 2, Episode 12.

    Nathan comes clean with Haley about his past relationship with Taylor, although Haley continues to email Chris without telling Nathan and Taylor finds out. Lucas and Karen remain at odds over his refusal to take the HCM test. Keith proposes to Jules. Meanwhile, Brooke fights for better working conditions at her new job. Lucas decides to take the HCM test. Wow, a lot of Naley drama with Taylor. Lucas finally agrees to take the HCM test with Keith! Lucas discovers the truth behind Jules and wants to tell Keith. I kinda feel bad for Jules. Brooke is sexy. I hate that she only requested another dollar per hour. Jules is pretty hot too. Good episode! =]moreless
  • Brooke gets a job to support her car insurance, she realizes what a responsibilty is, then she orgizinezes a work protests for more money Keith finally perposes to Jules but he is unaware that Dan hired her to fall in love with him and then desert himmoreless

    I thought Paul Johanson was absoutely amazing in this episode. I loved his first seen in this episode. when he was playing basketball and then he tells Lucas that Keith slept with Deb. I thought that was messed up. I thought Andy staying with Karen and Lucas was a little weird. I loved Marla her introduction in this episode was halerious! lol i loved how they said hello to each other. I loved how Brooke tried to stand up for herself. I hate how Dan is setting Keith up i thought that was horrible. anyways i do not like how Haley is emailing Chris behind Nathan's back i thought that was shady. I loved Anna and Lucas's talk about Keith and Jules I feel bad being in Lucas's position must suck ass! but it's true that Jules could have been a bad person to go into the arrangment. then she tells him that he is the person to know the truth about her. then he jokes around with her when she tells her that she kissed payton. I also loved how Lucas went to see Keith about Deb. I felt bad after he said "she's the one Luke" I knew right then and there that he is being set up I just had a feeling something was going on. what he said to Keith was true there are some lines you just don't cross and there he's not going to let this go... and that's so true. I felt extremely bad for Haley when Nathan told Haley that Taylor was his first how twisted is that! i can't believe he told her that! hell i wouldn't have! well that's my opinion.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • When Brooke writes her name to run for school president, there is another name on the sheet: Billy Dickson. Billy Dickson is a Director of Photography for One Tree Hill.

    • Chris's email address is

    • Haley supposedly is viewing Chris' blog online, but it is in fact loaded from the hard drive. Also, the files are under the user Lucas Scott, which is pretty weird considering the computer supposedly belongs to Haley and Nathan.

      The full adress of the page is:
      C:/Documents and Settings/lucas scott/Desktop/BlogsKellerInstinct.html

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Haley: Sorry about your hair.
      Taylor: Sorry I slept with your husband.

    • Anna: It's just that you like girls, or you like guys. Trust me, I wish it was like that for me. Be a lot easier if I could just pick a team.
      Lucas: Well, not necessarily. Look, maybe you shouldn't feel so much pressure to define yourself.

    • Nathan: It's a long story. Actually, it's not a long story. I kinda told Haley that I slept with Taylor.
      Lucas: Oh! Wow. Guess I'm not the only one who doesn't wanna go home.

    • Nathan: All right, Haley. We got married so quickly, we never really had the talk that most people have when they get engaged. About past relationships... sexual history.
      Haley: Ah, that's probably because I can give you mine in under ten seconds, while yours is catalogued in the Library of Congress.

    • Taylor: Hey, what happened to the whole "tattoos are for sluts and burnouts" sermon that you gave me?
      Haley: Uh, 23 is Nathan's jersey number, and you permanently marked your body with some random spider.

    • Taylor: How about you, Nathan? Were you in love the first time you had sex?
      Haley: Tay!
      Taylor: What? We're family now, we shouldn't have secrets.
      Nathan: It's not really any of your business, but the truth is, whoever my first was, wasn't nearly as important as my last.
