  • this episode initiates two friendships that will become SO great later.

    love this epi and laugh every single time I watch it! it really shows that one night can change a lot. well, worked it or not we'll find out only in the next episodes...

    Lucas and Nathan are working together as a team for a first time but not during the basketball game. and they have pretty nice moments together -- like when Luke sits in the car to help Nate, or when he gives him his sweater, or when Nate tells Luke the story about Dan from the childhood.

    and Haley and Brooke. so cool, so cute and so funny moments! Brooke is smth!!! and actually I loved to see in the beginning of epi some kind of Breyton friendship we used to see before.

    parents had their good moments, too. but this is another story that wll be told not by me.

    FAVE SCENE: every single scene with Brooke after she took the pillows: "Lets call you Brooke!", "Answer the question, Brooke!", "Did you mean Nathan?"

    FAVE QUOTE: Brooke (to Peyton): Wanna know what I think? I think Nathan likes tutor girl. But I think tutor girl likes Lucas. And I know I like Lucas. And I don't know who the hell you like anymore. This is all turning into one big love rectangle plus one, whatever that is.moreless
  • Everyone comes together!

    Very good episode because it but everyone in different situations and with unusual people.

    Lucas and Nathan. The fight at the game was a long time coming but it was cool to see them working together and open up to each other a bit. But will it last? Doubt it. The other team calling each other Thing, Thing 1 and Thing 3 was funny. Was slightly amused at how much the writers had Lucas and Nathan shirtless but...won't complain, I suppose. They seem to have an understanding about Haley too.

    Peyton, Haley and Brooke. So this was probably my favourite part of the episode. Brooke was hilarious on those pills - especially when she renamed Haley Brooke. But ir was really good to see Peyton and Haley bond and get to know each other. You can see why'd they'd be good friends. But the ending was quite sad because Brooke points out that they won't be friends at school, and when Haley does see them the next day, they won't talk. Well written I think.

    Keith, Karen, Dan and Deb. This was awkward but well done. Dan and Deb are still fighting over Nathan. Keith tells Karen he loves her when he's off his face - come on Karen, Keith's a really nice guy. But they drag it out, as usual OTH does...

    So yeah, a great episode for character and relationship development.

  • The Fighting Scott Brothers

    All the Scott Brothers are fighting in this episode.

    Lucas and Nathan get thrown out of an away game and later the bus after they get into a fight on the court. Later they fight each other to amuse the Pickerington morons. Dan and Keith fight at a small business dinner.

    The girls (Haley, Peyton, Brooke) end up in a car together on their way back to Tree Hill. Brooke is high from some pills she took to deal with the pain of getting trampled on during the fight at the game and becomes silly. Haley and Peyton sort of become friends. As weird as it is this episode sort of marks the beginning of the friendship between these three girls.

    Although I'm sure we all suspected it, in this episode it is confirmed that Keith in fact loves Karen. And we get to see Lucas and Nathan working together which is nice!moreless

Meanwhile, Karen and Keith attend a business function, and tempers flare when Dan and Deb are seated at their table. I love the start and the way we have to watch the whole of the episode to find out the start. I love the way Lucas and Hayley has fixed eveything. I love the way Nathan is really sweet to Haylet. I love the scene between Dan and Deb and the way they have to miss the game. I love the scene bettween Lucas and Karen talking about Keith. I love teh scene between Brooke and Payton make up, kind of. I love the way Brooke is, analysising everything. I love the way Nathan and Lucas brawl, I loved that storyline. I love the whole storyline with the two Scotts getting thrown off the bus, I love the scene with them both, there amazing together. I love the way Brooke is because of the tablets. I love the scenes with the girls. I also love the scenes with the boys. Ilove the parents scene. Yum, the Scotts half naked, delicious. I think Brooke is hilarious. I love the whole storyline, especially when Lucas and Nathan work together with the fighting. All in all, another awesome episode.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Goof: In the first scene after opening credits, Haley and Peyton are in the front seats of the car with the radio turned up. When the camera shot briefly changes to an outside view of the car driving down the road, it's clear that there is only one person in the car--the driver--who is not Peyton.

    • Goof: In the first few shots of the crowd at the Ravens game, several dummies are visible in the stands near the fans holding Ravens signs.

    • Goof: When Brooke decides to throw her pom-poms out the window of the car, she throws them out on the left side. But when the shot changes to the outside of the car, the pom-poms come out of the right window.

  • QUOTES (21)

    • Haley: Well, what about you and Lucas?
      Peyton: What about us?
      Haley: Oh, come on! Tortured artist meets tortured athlete? Talk about your obvious attraction.

    • Peyton: So last week… sucked. I just wanted to say thanks.
      (Hands him a self mixed CD)
      Lucas: Oh, you made me a mix?
      Peyton: Just trying to square my karma.
      Lucas: Uh-huh. Does this mean we're dating?
      Peyton: Listen, you've got a long bus ride tonight and I had some free time. Don't read too much into it.

    • Nathan: Wait, your name is Thing?
      Thing: That's right! Thing.
      Thing 1: Yeah! And I'm Thing 1!
      (Lucas turns to the third guy on the car)
      Lucas: And let me guess... Thing 2!
      Thing 3: Thing 3. Because I'm the third.

    • Brooke: This really hurts. Do you think you could, you know, give me something for the pain?
      Med Student: I shouldn't but... here you go.
      Brooke: Just one?
      Med Student: Okay.
      Med Student: Now, those are really strong so I guess, take half at a time -
      Brooke: Whoops! All gone!

    • Brooke: Where the hell are we?
      Haley: Miles from normal.
      Brooke: (looks at Haley then at Peyton) What is she doing here?
      Peyton: You invited her.

    • Lucas: So this Haley thing… you know, for some reason she feels like you're not full of crap. Don't take advantage of that.
      Nathan: I'm not going to.
      Lucas: I know you're not. Because if you do, you're going to live to regret it.
      Nathan: Bring it on. Hey, listen. Look, man, you didn't have to get in that car when those guys grabbed me. Especially after you warned me not to.
      Lucas: Right, whatever. You know the way I see it, I mean, if they would've taken you out, who the hell else am I gonna have to fight with, right?
      Nathan: Same person I have.

    • Thing: The game is Gladiator. Basically, you guys beat the hell out of each other for our amusement. The one left standing gets his clothes and a ride to a phone. The loser… well he loses.
      Thing Three: Let the games begin. (Lucas and Nathan stare at each other)
      Thing: Okay, the game isn't called two punks staring at each other. It's called Gladiator. Get to it.
      Lucas: Alright, you can screw yourself. Because there's no way in hell that the two of us are going to fight.
      Lucas: (Nathan tackles Lucas) Or maybe we are.

    • The Things:(They ditch the police car) Oh, yeah. Yeah, baby!
      Lucas: Yeah, yeah, right. Alright. Yahoo! Yeah, enough's enough. Give us our clothes.

    • Nathan: Dude, this is total crap. These guys are morons, not killers. I bet it's not even a real gun.
      Lucas: Let's just play the game, get our clothes, and get home.
      Lucas: Okay. Ah, we need two bottles of spring feminine cleansers.
      Nathan: Oh, great. A pair of douche bags.
      Lucas: A case of beer and we're out of here.
      Nathan: What? How are we going to pull that off?
      Lucas: Would you card us? I didn't think so.

    • Keith: Oh, what do you know? We finally got the center aisle this year. Guy must've thought I said Dan Scott.
      Karen: No. Dan's table has one spot for Dan and five for his ego.

    • Brooke: That's perfect. Brookie can come with us!
      Haley: Yeah, she named me Brooke.
      Brooke: Peyton, can she come? Please? Peyton, please!
      Peyton: Just don't touch the stereo. Or we'll have a problem.
      Brooke: Road trip! (Throws her pompoms)
      Brooke: We're going on a road trip! We're going on a road trip!

    • Brooke: We should totally hang out more. What is your name?
      Haley: Haley…
      Brooke: Yeah. I don't like that name. Let's call you… Brooke!

    • Nathan: Why do you want my life so bad anyway, man?
      Lucas: Dude, don't flatter yourself, alright? You're about the last person I want to trade places with.
      Nathan: Oh yeah? Well, all I know is you came out nowhere and started grabbing everything you could from me. My game, my girl...
      Lucas: What about you, huh? I bet your grades sucked before you met me. But I didn't see you going to Haley for help then.
      Nathan: Who said what me and Haley got is about grades?

    • Whitey: In all my years of coaching, this has got to be a low point. That little stunt you pulled almost cost us our undefeated record. I don't give diddlee-squat about your issues with your daddy or your girlfriends. As far as I'm concerned, you can hate each other until hell freezes over. But if you're going to play on my team, you're gonna learn how to work together.
      Nathan: I can't see that happening Whitey.
      Whitey: Yeah? Well you've got thirty-some-odd miles to figure it out.

    • Karen: Okay, what does this dress say to you?
      Lucas: Uh… beware of crazy ladies who talk to dresses.

    • Nathan: I remember this one summer, I was playing little league baseball and I was the pitcher and my dad was the coach. Anyway, this kid Billy Lyons, he was a great hitter. Everything he hit was a homerun. So, you know, he got up to the plate and there was nobody on base so I just walked him. Four straight pitches, nothing even close to a strike. So my dad calls a timeout, comes to the mound, and I'm thinking he's gonna say like, smart move or good thinking son, something like that. But instead... instead he grabs me by the arm, and he kicks me in the ass as hard as he can. I mean, he literally took my arm so that I wouldn't like, go flying, he kicked me so hard. Then he brought Stevie Planking in to pitch, sat me on the bench, never mentioned it again.
      Lucas: That sucks.
      Nathan: Yeah. So just think about that the next time you're feeling sorry for yourself.

    • Karen: Lucas called tonight a date for us. And for a while, I pretended that it was. And it felt good.
      Keith: (Half-asleep.) Can I tell you a secret?
      Karen: Sure. Go ahead.
      Keith: I pretended that too. (Karen smiles.) I love you. Always have.

    • Lucas (voiceover): As happens sometimes a moment settled and hovered and remained for much more than a moment. And sound stopped and movement stopped for much, much more than a moment. And then the moment was gone.

    • Mouth: Ooh. And that's a foul by Nathan Scott. (Nathan walks over to Lucas.)
      Nathan: Hey. Why don't you try putting your hands up on defense, alright?
      Lucas: Why don't you try not getting beat?
      Nathan: Why don't I just beat your ass? (He starts to walk away.) Moron... keep it up, punk.
      (A whistle blows and the referee throws the ball in)
      Referee: Ball in!
      Lucas: Hey, you gonna talk or you gonna play, Daddy's boy?
      Nathan: Hey, Haley's looking pretty fine tonight, right? Can't wait to get with that. (The Pirates get another basket.)
      Lucas: (To Peyton) Hey. So I saw Nathan in the shower... yeah, no wonder you broke up with him.

    • Brooke: Did you see that?
      Peyton: What?
      Brooke: Nathan just gave her the nod.
      Peyton: What nod?
      Brooke: The "let's hook up after the game" nod. (Pause) Wanna know what I think? I think Nathan likes tutor girl. But I think tutor girl likes Lucas. And I know I like Lucas. And I don't know who the hell you like anymore. This is all turning into one big love... (counting) ...rectangle plus one, whatever that is.
