In the final episode of the first season Karen says to Lucas the same line that Haley says here to Jamie "There is only one Tree Hill. And it's your home. I love you, my boy."
The voiceover at the end of the episode was previously used at the end of season 5 episode 13, "Echoes, Silence, Patience and Grace".
Haley: (to Jamie) It's a magical place, son. I've seen that magic in your eyes for the last nine years. There's only one Tree Hill Jamie Scott, and it's your home.
Nathan: (voiceover) It's the oldest story in the world. One day, you're seventeen and planning for someday. And then quietly without you really noticing, someday is today, and then someday is yesterday. And this is your life.
Haley: We spend so much time wanting, pursuing, wishing, but ambition is good. Chasing things with integrity is good, dreaming.
Brooke: If you had a friend you knew you'd never see again, what would you say? If you could do one last thing for someone you love, what would it be? Say it. Do it. Don't wait. Nothing lasts forever.
Mouth: Make a wish, and place it in your heart. Anything you want, everything you want.
Millie: Do you have it? Good. Now believe it can come true.
Quinn: You never know where the next miracle's gonna come from.
Clay: The next memory. The next smile. The next wish come true.
Chase: But if you believe that it's right around the corner...
Chris: You open your heart and mind to the possibility of it, to the certainty of it.
Skills: You just might get the thing you wishin' for.
Julian: The world is full of magic. You just have to believe in it.
Brooke: So make your wish. Do you have it?
Nathan: Good. Now believe in it.
Haley: With all your heart.
Haley: (opens crackerjack box and finds a bracelet) It's so beautiful, honey.
Nathan: No. You're beautiful. This will just be a nice accessory. Now, don't say that you never gave me anything, because you have. You've given me an amazing life. And I do love you so.
