(referring to the call she was going to make to Renee)
Haley:I didn't do it, I couldn't.
Nathan: That's what sets you apart from her. There's more than a thousand reasons why I could never, under any circumstances cheat on you.
Haley: I don't want to see you lose your dream.
Nathan: Lose her? She's right here, and I'm never letting go of her.
(after Haley plans to pay off the woman who started the scandal involving Nate)
Nathan: Haley, if I'm guilty of this, not am I only the kind of guy that would cheat on you. I'm the kind of guy that would father a child and then turn his back. I'm Dan Scott. If you think I'm capable of that, you do what you have to do. But I guarantee you, if you've lost faith in me, all the money in the world isn't going to fix it.
Nathan: Look, if you want to sleep around, I'm sure there's plenty of guys in Tree Hill who aren't responsible for my career. I could probably help you out with that.
Quinn: And you ever hear the one about people living in house glasses?
Nathan: Yeah, I have. And if you don't like living in mine, you're welcome to move back in with your husband.
Quinn: Nice, Nathan.
Nathan: A retraction at this point won't change anyone's opinion.
Haley: It might.
Nathan: They'll all just assume you paid her off. We will have, which will just make me look even more guilty. You should know this Haley, which makes me think the only reason you haven't left to pay her off is that you're starting to believe she might be telling the truth. Haley, if I'm guilty of this, not only am I the kind of guy that would cheat on you, I'm the kind of guy that would father a child then turn his back. I'm Dan Scott. If you think I'm capable of that you do what you have to do, but I can guarantee you if you've lost faith in me, all the money in the world isn't going to fix it.
Mouth (doing a newscast): Nathan Scott is a Tree Hill local who overcame injury and adversity to achieve his dream, a dream to play professional basketball. But lately Nathan's career has taken a backseat to allegations of an affair that led to the pregnancy of a fan. In my opinion, continuing to report on these allegations without any further evidence of their validity is a reckless attempt on the part of this network to boost ratings. I'm not saying athletes are above the law, but I think it's up to science to determine the validity of these claims, not the evening news. To date there's been no new evidence that suggests that Nathan Scott is guilty of these allegations. And yet he looks guiltier the more that we report on him. For my part I got into sports news because I think reporting on athletes inspires people to be exceptional. And while I've never been an exceptional athlete I can strive to be exceptional in my own way: by refusing to bow to pressure, by refusing to stoop to a level that's beneath me, just like Nathan Scott has refused to. I believe in Nathan Scott, but I also believe in my viewers. I believe you don't want any part in dragging him through the mud. So if you want sports news and not gossip, turn the channel, let my boss know that news isn't just about ratings. It's about people, and integrity, but mostly it's about truth and that still means something. I'm Marvin McFadden and this is sports. Or at least it used to be.
Julian (After reading Alex's script): Where did this come from?
Alex: Well I was watching Millicent sleep and she was busted and I thought about what it would be like to be that tragic, and have no self-confidence, and then I just added a boy.
