  • Trivia

    • When we see Lucas' buddy list on his computer we see Haley's screen name is BigFtHunterHJS. This is in reference to Lucas' goal in his yearbook in episode 4x19 "Ashes of Dreams You Let Die": To write the next Great American Novel and to find Big Foot before Haley.

    • When Lucas is online, we can see that his buddy list includes Lindsey Strauss (Lindsey), Scott23 (Nathan), BDavis (Brooke), Marv (Mouth), JunkYrdDog (Junk), Fergielicious (Fergie), and BigFtHunterHJS (Haley).

    • We find out that Millicent's last name is Huxtable.

    • When Dan tells Nathan of his attempted suicide in prison, he states that he tied a rope around his neck. In the actual episode, he used a sheet from his bed in the prison cell.

  • Quotes

    • Dan: Without a transplant I'll be dead within six months.
      Lucas: But you're dead to so many of us already, Dan. Really, what does it matter?

    • Haley: Look, before the wedding I told Lucas that he shouldn't marry Lindsay.
      Peyton: Why?
      Haley: Because I had just read his new novel and when I did I knew right away that he was still in love with you, whether he's ready to admit it or not.

    • (Talking about the new line Baby Brooke)
      Brooke: It's fun, it's edgy and every cute baby is gonna drool for it or on it.

    • Brooke: Thank you for being so good today. We make a pretty good team, me and you. I know this surgery is really scary but I'm gonna be right here for you okay? We're gonna get through this together. Yeah and I know I'm not your real mom but I could just use a sign or something to let me know I'm doing okay. (Angie smiles for the first time to her) Okay. It's you and me, baby.

    • Brooke: (In a baby voice) And anyway, Angie is scared of her creepy Aunt Peyton, isn't she? Yes. We like Uncle Lucas better.
      Peyton: Hey!
      Brooke: (In her normal voice) I'm kidding. (In her baby voice) We're kidding, aren't we? Yes.
      Peyton: I mean it is pretty great that he's helping out. Its kind of Mr. Mom, but its nice.

    • Lucas: How's it going? Better?
      Brooke: Yeah, I'm starting to get it down. She's sleeping through the night now.
      Lucas: See? I told you you'd be a good mom.

    • Dan: So that's it... you're just going to make that decision?
      Nathan: You made that decision for me, the moment you pulled that trigger.

    • Nathan: (to Quentin) I've thrown a lot of punches and every last one was selfish.

    • Brooke: Thank you for being here for us.
      Lucas: Thank you for letting me.
