  • Fun filler episode.

    Near Wild Heaven was a fun episode for some of the character but an infuriating one for others.

    I'll get the bad stuff out of the way. I've really grown to dislike Deb this season. Not only has she been horrible to almost everyone but she's now claiming she is going to try and break-up Nathan and Haley. I even prefer Dan at the moment, even though his nice guy at is way too OTT and not believable for a second. I also think Keith's being slightly harsh with Karen. She's not in love with you,kind of selfish to cut her out just because of that. But at least it sent Karen to college and a new story line.

    The bachelor and bachelorette parties were fun. Haley getting drunk and enjoying herself was great but Peyton and Brooke thinking over their love lives is a little drawn out now. But Brooke having finance problems is definitely interesting and maybe a first proper storyline for her on her own. Nathan was clearly going to throw the stripper out but I'm glad he did anyway. Tim as really funny in this episode - especially after he got arrested. Lucas wanting to spend time with Dan? An interesting storyline. Don;t know how ling they can drag it out for though.

    So a good episode but not much happened.

  • Bachelor/Bachelorette Parties

    With Dan not able to work Keith has taken over the dealership. Both to help out and to hopefully get forgiveness for sleeping with Deb. This is a bad idea. But I love that Nathan is going to be working with him. It will give them a chance to connect the way Keith and Lucas have.

    Dan apologizes to Lucas for sucking as a father and hopes he can forgive him. Karen decides to go back to school.

    Tim wants to throw Nathan a bachelor party even though he is already married. The party kind of sucks because well, Dim is planning it all and we all now how good he is at planning things and getting strippers. The cops show up when they see a keg being brought up to the apartment and end up arresting Tim for being Tim because he believes they are strippers. The party then comes to an end, but the stripper Tim hired does show up and tries to hook up with Nathan. Nathan sends her away because he loves Haley.

    In the meantime the girls have a bachelorette party for Haley. It was a lot of fun with Haley getting her first fake i.d., a mechanic stripper, a lingerie fashion show, and a stripper lesson. And for some reason rich Brooke doesn't appear to be so rich anymore as her credit cards keeping getting declined.moreless

  • Taking the easy way out ?

    The O.C = Perfect drama. 90210 = Depression + Romance = perfect drama. Friday Night lights = Sweet humor with sprinkled tragedy = perfect drama. What One Tree Hill was in season one was a perfect drama. For some reason the only thing that's captivating is the whole Dan thing they have going. This show is taking the easy way adding having fun and hot bodies to every episode. Brooke throws a bridal shower for Haley. Nathan has a stripper come to his home for his own shower but he was left alone since all his friend's left due to Tim getting arrested. I love watching One Tree Hill because of how fun everything can get. I just laughed througout the episode, but the thing is when all the laughing stops and you get moments like the Deb and Dan moments, they come off as awkward instead of touching.moreless
  • Season 2, Episode 3.

Meanwhile, Lucas debates whether to visit Dan in the hospital, Karen decides to go back to school, and Nathan gets a job working for Keith at Dan's dealership. I loved the very first scene, thanks to Nathan. =] Rawr. And Brooke with the towel. Too bad we couldn't see anything.

    "Champagne? How much is that gonna cost?!"

    "Who cares? It's on my dad's credit card."

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (15)

    • Brooke: I was thinking about what Haley said. You know how it's all supposed to be for love.
      Peyton: Kinda scary huh?
      Brooke: Yeah, do you think she's right?
      Peyton: I know she's right, but that's not the part that scares me.
      Brooke: What does?
      Peyton: People are going to disappoint you. I get that, I kind of expect that.. but I don't know, what if you wake up one day and realize that you're the disappointment?

    • Karen: Let me grab some coffee.
      Deb: Dan says he wants to come home.
      Karen: Let me grab some liquor.

    • Haley: All right. I'm off. All the important numbers are by the phone: police, fire, pimps.

    • Tim: Dude, smell me.
      Nathan: Dude, kiss my ass.

    • Haley: Would you just look after him?
      Lucas: I'll tell you what, I will sacrifice myself and go to the bachelor party to take care of Nathan.
      Haley: Oh, you're so heroic. Thank you.

    • Brooke: Don't worry about it. Just leave the shower to me okay? I'm gonna teach Haley James-Scott, whoever you are right now, how to have some serious fun. Tomorrow night, I'm tutor girl.

    • Nathan: Haley, this bachelor party is more for Tim than it is for me okay? He's threatened by the fact that Lucas threw a reception so this is just his way of proving that he's still my best friend.
      Haley: Yeah, what's next? Lap dances for world peace?

    • Tim: Whatever? You're telling me this girl shows up all hot and willing, you wouldn't go there?
      Nathan: Tim, I'm married.
      Tim: Right. You keep telling yourself that. But that ring doesn't erase your past Nate. Some of us still remember who you used to be.

    • Dan: I wanna do something I should've done a long time ago. I wanna apologize to you and to your mother. I'm sorry Lucas, for everything.

    • Brooke: Haley, let the boys have their fun. Besides, what's good for the goose is even better for you. They can have their little testosterone fest autos and dial-a-date, but you get to have a bridal shower and rake in tons of loot from all the guests. This is so a fair trade.

    • Dan: I know I can't change our past, Lucas, but I'm hoping I can change our future.

    • Tim: Hey Nathan, what do you think? Thai? Mexican? Chinese is always good.
      Haley: Tim, you just ate! How is it possible that you're still hungry?
      Tim: I'm not ordering food! I'm ordering strippers.

    • (The girls' limo goes passed the apartment)
      Mouth: Hey, look! It's Girls Gone Wild!
      Nathan: (sees Haley on the moonroof) Haley?

    • Nathan: Officer, there's been a mistake.
      Lucas: Yeah, he thought you were a stripper.
      Tim: I can see your thong strap, Foxy Brown!
      Lucas: Never mind.
      Nathan: Yeah, take him.
      (Tim is being taken away in the police car)
      Tim: I've never been so horny!

    • Brooke: A girl can do anything she puts her mouth to.

    • Brooke: You guys totally have the whole Nick and Jessica thing going on, just without the stalkerazzi and chickeny-tuna.

      An obvious reference to Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey, who got married and made a reality TV show out of their married life. One of the highest points of the TV show was Jessica confusing chicken with tuna.
