  • Loved the real drama.

    Nothing Left to Say but Goodbye was a quiet episode, but in a big episode. There were no silly storylines about affairs with teachers or dating models- it was just the characters we know and love facing normal problems.

    It was also a major episode because it was the official end of Brooke and Lucas as a couple. I did like how it was brought back up again and that Whitey's speech made them both realise they weren't made for each other. It was a nice end to their relationship and hopefully the start of their new friendship. But I also loved how Derek helped Peyton face her fears and tell Lucas how she feels. It's been building up brilliantly since last seasons finale and the ending where she reveals that she's in love with him was great. Sad to see Derek leave as well considering what a positive impact he's had on Peyton.

    Meanwhile, Nathan really is in deep shit with this Daunte situation. Even Dan can't help him. I do feel for Nathan because he only wanted the best for his family but all know it ends badly. Dan saying that he'll have to lose the championship really was a shock too. Oh and Dan and Karen went on an obvious. I don't mind them and am glad Karen is showing at least some resistance. Loved how Haley was with Rachel - she will tutor her but tells her to remember she can't stand her. Classic.

    A strong episode leading up to the state championship.

  • Awards Banquet

    On the eve of the championship game Tree Hill High as a basketball awards banquet. Both Peyton and Brooke ask Lucas to go with them, but Brooke asked first. Peyton loves Lucas and Brooke wants to see if there is still anything there between her and Lucas. Nathan is getting the MVP award presented by Lucas and Whitey gets a well deserved Lifetime Achievement Award. Rachel asks Haley to tutor her. And Daunte wants Nathan to lose the championship game.

    The banquet was so beautiful. Whitey's speech was amazing. I love that Brook and Lucas both realized that they don't belong together. Lucas belongs with Peyton and that's the way it's always been meant to be. I'm so glad Peyton finally told Lucas how she feels. It's also great that Psycho Derek has been caught (or so we are told) and also it sucks that Derek has to leave.

    I hate that Daunte wants Nathan to throw the game. I hate even more that Nathan plans to do it. I love that Dan was going to try and help. It was so funny hearing Daunte say it would be a shame if the ground next to Keith started filling up. I love when people threaten Dan like that. It's so funny. It's like 'do you know who you're dealing with?'moreless
  • Peyton takes a risk with help from Derek.

    I thought that this episode was okay. I liked that Derek is helping Peyton get over her fears in life and that he is trying to get her to open up. I think that it is good that she has someone helping her and showing her she can get past pyscho Derek and live life to the fullest. I was mad that Brooke asked Lucas to go to the dinner with her then tell Peyton she did it out of spite at frist. Can the girl make up her mind already. I was happy Brooke and Lucas relized that they are not meant for each other and that Peyton told Lucas that she loved him.moreless
  • Brooke asks Lucas to the banquet but it's out of spite to piss off Payton. Nathan gets into Duke, and haley gets into Stanford. Payton is having a hard time going outside after her stalker.moreless

    hmmm I feel extremely bad for Payton. I wish she would get over it I mean it completely sucks I loved Mouth and Gigi it sucks that she broke up with him. lol I thought that the kids Haley was watching were really funny lol it was hysterical when one of them was bopping Mouth on the head. it sucks that Rachel was the one hitting on Nick and tried to dump it on him. I felt bad for Brooke when that happend then it turned out that it was true the whole time! THAT SUCKED! ... Deb is completely NUTS!!! she gets arrested for forging a doctor's lip lol who does that haha anyways yea that's my opinion for now =)moreless
  • Season 4, Episode 8.

    I enjoyed this episode. Derek finally left! Thank God! That storyline was getting boring! He did a lot for his sister, though. Brooke invites Lucas to the banquet, and Peyton wants to go with him, too. Brooke knows that it won't work out between them again, but she only invited him because she was mad at Peyton. Brooke is great, and hot! Rachel is failing calculus, and if she doesn't do well on her finals, she won't be able to graduate with her friends. She asks Haley to tutor her. I loved Haley's reaction. Definitely a great and entertaining episode overall.moreless

  • QUOTES (21)

    • (Derek is painting Peyton's room while she daydreams)
      Derek: Am I boring you? Just say the word and I can stop painting your room.
      Peyton: I'm sorry. Just dealing with some stupid high school boy drama.
      Derek: Lucas, huh?
      Peyton: Is it that obvious?
      Derek: (smiles) Only to everyone.
      Peyton: Everyone except Lucas.
      Derek: So make it obvious to him. I don't understand why you're so afraid of your own feelings.
      Peyton: Well, those feelings are what destroyed my friendship with Brooke. And I don't wanna lose Lucas, too.
      Derek: What have I been trying to teach you. You can't live in fear. Life is about taking risks. Not being afraid to go after what you want.

    • (Haley's in the Tutor center when Rachel walks in)
      Haley: In case you're wondering, the nurse's office is still the best place to treat a venereal disease.

    • Haley: Well, if you're really committed to this, I will be happy to recommend another tutor to you. But I can't help you personally, it's not possible.
      Rachel: Well, I figured you'd be all booked up.
      Haley: No, no. I have plenty of time. I just can't stand you.

    • Brooke: Peyton I brought you something. Thought you could use it.
      Peyton: Am I missing something?
      Brooke: It's a 'To-Go' box. You know...since you're screwing my leftovers.
      Peyton: Really Brooke? You seriously went through the trouble of bringing me an actual 'To-Go' box. At least you're a dedicated bitch.
      Brooke: Says the dedicated slut.
      Peyton: For the record, I'm not screwing Lucas. I know you have trouble comprehending two people in bed together actually just sleeping.
      Brooke: Remember Peyton, I gave Lucas to you and I can take him back whenever I want!
      Peyton: Brooke are you listening to yourself? If you decide to get back with Lucas, you better mean it 'cause he deserves to be with someone who loves him.
      Brooke: Someone like you?

    • Dan: How's Haley doing?
      Karen: She's grown into a strong woman. I can't believe she's gonna be a mom. It seems like yesterday that she was coming and asking Lucas to come out and play.
      Dan: You know, they're definitely young. But at least they have each other. Nathan's gonna be a great father. Karen, I realize you have no regrets, but I do. I just need you to know that.

    • Haley: Rachel asked me to tutor her.
      Lucas: You're tutoring Rachel?
      Haley: Hell, no. I said she asked me.
      Lucas: What happened to second chances?
      Haley: Rachel's had plenty of second chances, and every time, she's proven her true colors.
      Lucas: I'm just saying. Look, people make mistakes. But if they're willing to put the past behind them, then maybe we should, too. Right, mom?
      Karen: Right.

    • Mouth: Those flowers are awesome.
      (Mouth leaves)
      Brooke: Okay, we are losing the flowers.

    • Brooke: Lucas don't hate me, but I think this was a mistake.
      Lucas: So do I.
      Brooke: You do?
      Lucas: I missed you so much when you broke up with me Brooke. I mean, I spent every day hoping that maybe we'd get back together. But listening to Whitey describe his life with Camilla I just realized -
      Brooke: He wasn't describing us. (Lucas nods) Do you think that even exists anymore?
      Lucas: What?
      Brooke: A love so strong that no person can come between it?
      Lucas: I sure hope so!

    • (When Lucas shows up in Peyton's room)
      Lucas: Listen, I just wanted to say I'm sorry that we didn't get to spent more time together tonight.
      Peyton: How did it go with Brooke?
      Lucas: I realized tonight that it's over between me and Brooke. And she realized it, too.
      Peyton: I love you Lucas.
      Lucas: I love you, too Peyton.
      Peyton: You don't understand. I've been holding this in for a really long time, and you just need to know. I love you. I'm in love with you.

    • Peyton: Are you kidding me?? (in shock) This place looks great I can't belive you finished.
      Derek: Just holding up my end of the bargain. the question is, did you?
      Peyton: Yeah I took a risk
      Derek: You gonna leave me hanging?
      Peyton: He's going to the banquet with Brooke
      Derek: I'm sorry Peyton. At least you put yourself out there. I'm proud of you.
      Peyton: Thanks. So I kinda need a favor. um... will you go with me? And I'm not sure I can handle another no.
      Derek: I'd be honored to.
      Peyton: Cool.
      Derek: Do you have a special place for this? (Holding up Peyton's "People Always Leave" drawing)
      Peyton: I used to, I don't think I need it anymore.

    • Brooke: I just have one question.
      Peyton: What no props?
      Brooke: You're sleeping in Lucas's bed, why haven't you told him how you feel?
      Peyton: Brooke I told you I wasn't going to say anything to Lucas until it was over between the two of you. So yes, if you had moved on I would have said something by now, but you haven't dated anyone since Lucas.
      Brooke: You had your chance Peyton. You should have said something.
      Peyton: Doesn't matter now, does it? Looks like you two are getting back together.
      Brooke: I was mad at you Peyton when I asked him to come with me tonight.
      Peyton: So you invited him out of spite?
      Brooke: No, not at first... Now, I don't know anymore.

    • Whitey: You do realize we have one more game to play. (laughter) Let me tell ya, this award means an awful lot to me. I might have given a lifetime to this team, but the players... the players have given me so much more. You know basketball was my first love, and as most of you in here realize, you don't forget your first love. My only regret is that I can't share this wonderful moment with the other love of my life, my late wife, Camilla. Camilla was the only person who ever fully understood me. Being with her made everything else seem less important. The moment I met her I knew I was looking at my future and I knew no person could ever come between us. I know Camilla would have liked this group of boys. I want to thank them and I want to thank all of you for allowing me to spend a lifetime with my first love. Thank you. (in tears)

    • Nathan: Did you talk to him?
      Dan: Yeah
      Nathan: What are we going to do dad?
      Dan: You're gonna lose the state championship.

    • Lucas: Good Evening everybody. Tonight I've been asked to present a very important award to a very important person. The Most Valuable Player award honors not only the best player on the court, but also a true leader, off the court. An MVP leads not only in points and rebounds, but by example. We are very proud to follow in the footsteps of our leader and our Most Valuable Player, Nathan Scott.

    • (Shari to Dan and Karen at the basketball banquet)
      Shari: De jav vu, Dan Scott and Karen Roe together. It's just like our high school prom.
      Karen: Sherri, Is your son even on the basketball team?
      Shari: Actually, Timmy is doing really well. He's at a private institution that focuses on each student's strengths and weaknesses.
      Dan: Just say he's slow Shari.

    • Haley: I gotta ask your advice on something. Rachel asked me to tutor her.
      Nathan: Wow
      Haley: And... just wanted to know what you thought i should do.
      Nathan: Well, I remember not too long ago I needed a tutor and you set aside your feelings and agreed to help me.
      Haley: Do not compare yourself to Rachel.
      (Nathan laughs)
      Nathan: Well, we all make mistakes, All of us. You do what you want to do, but I think you should know that when I was freaking out about the whole pregnancy thing, Rachel was the one who got through to me.
      Haley: Oh god, I'm going to have to tutor Rachel aren't I?
      Nathan: Yeah
      Haley: Yeah

    • (Derek to Peyton)
      Derek: I'll promise to have this room painted by the time you get home as long as you promise to take a risk today.

    • (After seeing Peyton in Lucas' room)
      Brooke: Just friends, at least you're enjoying the benefits.

    • Whitey: Lifetime achievement award, sounds more like an obituary.

    • Haley: Rachel
      Rachel: Haley
      Haley: Look, I will tutor you on three conditions.The first one is you have to work around my schedule. Im working a ton of hours right now and i really don't care if they disrupt your social life. Second is, if you miss one session its over got it?
      Rachel: Got it, so whats the third condition?
      Haley: No matter how nice i seem you have to remember that i cant stand you...ok?

    • (About his date to the banquet)
      Lucas: Actually, I'm going with Brooke.
      Haley: Rewind! When did this happen?
