One Tree Hill

Season 4 Episode 11

Everything In Its Right Place

Aired Wednesday 8:00 PM Jan 17, 2007 on The CW



  • Trivia

    • 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

    • 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.

  • Allusions

    • 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.
