  • Better than last episode.

    Not much happeneded in Everything in Its Right Place but it was a lot better of an aftermath episode than the previous one.

    Peyton worries that Lucas will leave her...or that he'll die. But eventually others get through to her and they embrace in the school, making their new relationship official. Lucas is also still thinking about what Keith said in his dream - dragging it out a little, aren't we writers? Haley finds out about Nathan's involvement in the accident and freaks out. Fair enough. I'm glad they sorted it out in the end though.

    Deb breaking out of rehab only to find out it's voluntary was really funny but this drug storyline is seriously dragging on now. Plus Karen and Dan continue to get closer (interesting) Mouth and Gigi breakup (why should I care) and Brooke and Rachel steal a calculus test only to have to join to Clean Teens as a cover up (very amusing).

    A better episode.

  • I Think We've Waited Long Enough

    Lucas is back at school after his heart attack and is anxious to tell Peyton he loves her, but she keeps ducking out of fear of things ending badly since "people always leave" I don't blame her for being hesitant, but Lucas and Peyton belong together so she shouldn't be worried.

    I'm glad Nathan came clean to Haley about all the Daunte stuff. I don't blame her for being mad cause I would be pretty ticked, too, but in the end she forgave him because she loves him and they are perfect together!!

    I'm sort of glad Dan is out of jail. He belongs there for killing Keith, but Daunte died in the accident. I knew that from the beginning.

    Brooke and Rachel are forced to join clean teens after they get caught sneaking into the school. It turns out Brooke is the one who was failing and needed tutoring but Rachel decided stealing the tests would be a better option.

    The ending..that kiss with Lucas and Peyton in the hallway, him lifting her up and the spin was so sweet! I loved it.moreless
  • Season 4, Episode 11.

    This episode had its ups and downs. The downs were all the goofs on Mark's part, like the dates on the tombstones. Otherwise, this episode was cool. I liked Brooke and Rachel's storyline, as well as Nathan and Haley's. I wasn't a fan of Peyton's paranoia and Lucas really didn't have a plot, he was just there, associated with everyone else and their plots, in one way or another. Brooke and Rachel become virginal again. I love Brooke's comments about Rachel being a slut. It was obvious that Daunte died from the impact, and that Nathan didn't kill him. Good episode.moreless
  • Lucas seemed to recover pretty quickly!

    Peyton has trouble letting Lucas all the way into her life because she fears that he'll leave like everyone else. It turns out that Daunte died on impact of the accident. Dan is released from prison. Nathan tells Haley the real story between him and Daunte. She stays with Karen and Lucas. Nathan gets her back and she forgives him. After Brooke fails a math quiz, she asks Rachel to help her break in to get the answers, even though she was against it before. When Principal Turner catches them, they have to make up an excuse as to why they're there at school so late: they want to join the Clean Teens club. Rachel and Brooke become members. Deb tries to break out of rehab, but then she realizes that all she has to do is sign out. Whoever knows that Dan is a murderer has done it again. Karen takes them down, thinking they're from what happened with Daunte. Gigi wants to break up with Mouth because of their age difference, but Mouth doesn't want to break up. Lucas tries to figure out what Keith told him in the dream about his death.

    This was a great episode! I really like Gigi and Mouth together, so I don't want them to break up. I'm glad Nathan is telling the truth to Haley. The situation with Rachel and Brooke is funny! This episode gets a 9.5 out of 10 from me!moreless
  • I wuoldn't say that loads of important stuff happens in this episode but it was still very cute!!!

    I have been waiting sice season one for Luke and Peyton to finally cop on and admit their feelings to each other, so it's nice at long last to see them together. But I feel sorry for poor peyton- I know some people think she's a total drama queen but look at all the horrible stuff thats happened to her!! Both of her moms died, she was shot at, attacked in her own home... and then the guy she loves almost dies when they finally admit that they like each other. Which has happened before, if you go back to episodes 13/14 in season one. It's just really nice to see Leyton together, and I hope they mangage to make it work this time!!!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (8)

    • Keith's birthday is July 26, 1970.

    • Shelly is now blonde, even though she was a brunette in her previous appearance.

    • If Keith was the older brother of Dan then shouldn't he have been older than being born in 1970? That would have made him 36 when he died. But if Karen got pregnant senior year and Deb beginning of college, then that would make Dan, Deb & Karen all 35-36 as Luke & Nate are 17/18 and only 3 months apart! So if that's the case then Dan & Keith were the same age?

    • There's a picture behind Nathan when he is telling Haley about his point shaving and the picture is of a person shooting a basketball with the number 33 as the jersey. Dan Scott was number 33.

    • Keith and Jimmy died on the same day, but the date of death on their headstones are different. According to the headstones, Keith died on January 23rd and Jimmy died on March 1st. The episode aired on March 1st, but last season and this season are 1 year, so there is some obvious confusion on when the school shooting took place.

    • In the scene where Nathan brings Haley soup, we see him take out the soup from the bag then he turns the TV off. But after we see him turn off the TV, he's holding the bag and he takes out the soup again.

    • Within the first few minutes we see Rachel & Brooke talking at school. Rachel was holding lipgloss, but then she was seen pulling it out of her pants.

    • When Brooke and Rachel are in the Clean Teen meeting, Shelley grabs two t-shirts and when she hands one to Rachel she says "Brooke" and then when she hands the other one to Brooke, she says "Rachel".

  • QUOTES (18)

    • Lucas: Have you ever had a dream that seemed so real, that when you woke up you didn't know what to believe? Or what you thought was true, wasn't? And what you thought wasn't true, was? Would you return to your dreams with the hope of finding one perfect reality? Sometimes, life is stranger than a dream. And the only way to wake up, is to face what lies hidden beneath your soul. And you can only hope that in those moments of dark reflection, that you are not alone.

    • Deb: I don't belong here, I'm a good person. So I pop pills, I haven't killed anybody. Sure maybe I started a fire once, and I did discharge a firearm recently, but it was an accident. The bottom line is I don't need this place.
      Councellor: Deb I've been in your shoes.
      Deb: Gucci I don't think so.

    • Haley: I need to know that you're gonna be honest with me.
      Nathan: I promise.
      Haley: I need to know that you're gonna let me in, Nathan. I mean, all the way.
      Nathan: I will. Ok, I'll let you in. If that's what it takes, I'll let you in. It's just, sometimes I'm afraid that if I do, you'll see the real me, the guy I was before you. I'm not proud of that person, the one that I used to be, but if I have to be that guy to keep you safe, then that's who I'm gonna be. Look, if you want me to apologize for defending you, or for fighting back when somebody hurts you, I can't do that. I won't do that, ok, because, the truth is, that's a guy I'll never be. The guy that just stands by and watches while the world hurts you. Can you understand that?
      Haley: I can't.
      Nathan: Haley, you have to!
      Haley: No, I can't... keep standing on one foot. So, if there's more I should sit down, but if you're done then just take me home because I'm tired and I miss you and I love you, every version of you.

    • Peyton: Sorry I was being a weirdo earlier.
      Lucas: You mean when you didn't kiss me on the quad or when you said dreams are e-mails from ghosts.
      Peyton: Both.

    • Haley: Why is it that it's so much easier to forgive a stranger than someone you love?

    • Peyton: Dreams are e-mail for ghosts.

    • Brooke: A little late for a Clean Teen meeting, don't you think?
      Rachel: What else does virgins have to do at night?

    • (Lucas at Keith's grave)
      Lucas: I took your advice. I told Peyton how I felt. I gotta tell you something: you were right. It felt good to tell her. Thanks Keith.

    • Lucas: What's wrong Peyton?
      Peyton: I wanna kiss you Luke, I do. I just don't wanna lose you.
      Lucas: Hey...what makes you think you're gonna lose me?
      Peyton: Only the fact that I lose everyone I care about. Anytime I open up to someone they walk out of my life or they die or they move away or they get shipped off to Iraq or they turn into freakin' Norman Bates or - (Lucas cuts her off by kissing her)
      Lucas: Not everyone!
      Peyton: Luke, the last time we kissed you had a heart attack.
      Lucas: And I didn't die. I couldn't die. Do you know why? Because I had to come back and look into those green eyes of yours and tell you I love you. I do! I love you Peyton. You didn't push me away. I came back for you. And no matter how long it takes, I'll wait for you.

    • Shelly: Well, the door's always open.
      Brooke: Just like Rachel's legs.

    • (Nathan is standing at the door)
      Nathan: Haley, we can't be apart like this. We need to be together. (shows her his ring) Always and Forever.

    • Haley: Thanks for telling me the truth. I guess that's why they call it true love.

    • Brooke: I'm not book smart, I'm Brooke smart and there is a big difference.

    • Gigi: I wanted to let you know that I'm going to break up with you.
      Mouth: What? Did you just break up with me?
      Gigi: No. I just wanted to let you know that I was going to.

    • Deb: This place is just not for me.
      Nurse: You do know this is a voluntary clinic? If you want to leave, all you have to do is sign out.
      Deb: Oh.

    • Brooke: You still look like a slut.
      Rachel: Well you still smell like a whore.

    • Brooke: Hi Shelly still trying to save the school one Rachel at a time?

    • Lucas: (voiceover) Have you ever had a dream that seemed so real when you woke up you didn't know what to believe? What would you do if what you thought was true wasn't, and what you thought wasn't true was. Would you retreat into your dreams with the hope of finding a more perfect reality? Sometimes life is stranger than a dream, and the only way to wake up is to face what lies are hidden in your soul. And you can only hope that in those moments of dark reflection, that you are not alone.

  • NOTES (5)


    • Episode Title: Everything In Its Right Place

      "Everything In Its Right Place" is a song off the 2000 album, Kid A from the band, Radiohead.

    • April 20: This is Jimmy's birthday as well as the date of the Columbine High School shootings. Jimmy was the school shooter at Tree Hill.

    • Peyton: ...or they turn into freaking Norman Bates.

      Norman Bates is a character in the novel 'Psycho' by Robert Bloch. He's probably best known from the movie, that has the same title, by Hitchcock. The character he plays has been abused as a child and developed a personality disorder. Because of this he thinks he's his mother so he doesn't have to face the fact that he killed her, and others. Peyton compares him to crazy Derek who stalked her.
