Episode Recap


Lucas told Lindsey that he was waiting until he wrote another book to ask her to marry him. He says that he didn't want her to end up regretting him. She tells him that she doesn't love him for the book; she loves him for the mind the book sprang from. He asks Lindsey to marry him. Haley tells Nathan that's she's sorry she got mad at him and that she saw Lucas kissing Peyton. She says that Peyton has no right to do that to Lindsey after she broke his heart. Haley wants to tell Lindsey what she saw. But Nathan said that if he's cheating on Lindsey then he needs to man up and tell her himself.



Brooke is drunk and tells Owen that she should sue him for naming a shot after her. He tells her that everyday the shot is named after different girls. Owen offers to drive her home after she gets a call from Peyton. Then she says, 'You do like me.' And he said that her drinking and driving is not what he wants to get sued for.



Mouth paces around in his room and finally gets the courage to call Millie. He leaves a message saying, 'Hi Millicent, it's Mouth Marvin. I just wanted you to know that I had a really nice time with you tonight and I'm sorry if it ended weird or if you felt bad. Not that you should feel bad; I should feel bad. I do feel bad. So call me Marvin, Mouth. I mean you should call me and my name is Marvin and Mouth. You should call me Marvin.' And the voice mail beeps. He's nervous so he kept talking.



Peyton and Brooke sit in the living room with a cozy fireplace. She tells Brooke what happened and asks her what she should do. Brooke tells her the first thing she should do is let go and gives her the copy of Lucas' book. And then Brooke says, 'We are gonna sit and you're gonna cry on my shoulder.'



Haley and Jamie come to see Brooke at Clothes Over Bro's. Lindsey comes there and tells Haley and Brooke that Lucas asked her to marry him. She tells Haley that everything is great as long as this town is big enough for 2 Mrs. Scotts. Both Haley and Brooke say, 'Congratulations' in unison.



Nathan talks to Carrie about what happened last night. He tells her that she has to stop the flirting and the skinny dipping. Mouth's employee tells him that Alice got fired and Mouth starts unpacking his belongings. He tells Mouth that they found out she was sleeping with an employee. Nathan and Skills are in Lucas' office watching a basketball game and Lucas is late. He tells Nathan and Skills he got engaged to Lindsey. And Quentin comes in with a sprained hand.



Peyton stops by Lucas' office and tells him that if he wanted to break her heart there's a thousand ways he could do it. He didn't have to propose to Lindsey. And he tells her that it was just weird timing. She tells him not to marry her and that that kiss snapped her universe back to reality. He tells her that he's in love with Lindsey. Haley comes by and asks what is going on here. Haley asks him if he is positive about this and marriage is a huge commitment. He tells her that Lindsey will always be his number 2 but Haley is number 1. Haley tells him that marriage is serious and he better be ready to commit to Lindsey for the rest of his life.



Brooke talks to Victoria and tells Jamie to cover his ears. She tells Victoria that she will not kill furry little creatures to make coats out of them. Owen comes by Brooke's shop to buy something for a girl. Peyton runs into Molly at Tree Hill High and asks if Lucas really carried her out of the library when she got shot. Peyton tells her yes but she didn't remember writing that on her closet door. Molly takes out Peyton's book/diary and tells her she read it 13 times.



Mouth finds out from a man that Alice has been sleeping with anchorman Rick. He offers Mouth a position to broadcast for the Tree Hill Ravens game. Then his employee asks Mouth about it and tells him that she's been sleeping with Carlton as well. And his employee asks if they said anything about him and he admitted he slept with her a few mornings before work.



Peyton asks Haley if she did something to upset her and she tells her that she saw Lucas and her kissing. Brooke talks to Jamie about Owen. Jamie has chocolate ice-cream all over his face. Jamie asks if she's gonna kill furry little creatures and she said no she most certainly will not and they pinky-swear on it. She tells him that she's Brooke Davis. And Jamie said, 'Brooke Penelope Davis.' What makes the bartender worth my time, says Brooke. And Jamie said, 'What's underneath all those clothes Brooke Davis?' She then asks how old he is and he puts up 4 fingers.



Carrie buys something from Clothes Over Bros and tells Millie that she just wants to impress a guy. Mouth comes there as well. Millie tells Mouth that she heard about him and his boss. She doesn't want to date the kind of guy that would date his boss just to get ahead of his job no matter how smart, funny, hot he is otherwise. She tells him that she's sorry but he's not the kind of guy she hoped he'd be.



Mouth is in Lucas' office doing a broadcast and he is very nervous and couldn't stop thinking of Millie. Peyton visits her mom at the cemetery. She wants a mother-daughter talk with her. And tells her about Lucas asking Lindsey to marry him. Haley calls Carrie and is wondering if Nathan and Jamie are waiting for her to eat dinner. Carrie tells her that they're not here right now but she is really lying.



Jamie draws a red car and Nathan says it's a work of art. And Jamie says, 'Look momma.' I mean 'Nanny Carrie.' Mouth stops by and asks Millie if she'd give him another chance to prove that he's not that kinda guy anymore. Skills and Lucas toast to his engagement. Mouth brings Millie to the broadcasting studio. It shows a clip of ballet and he tells her that she's really great and wants to know more about her. Jamie tells Carrie that he's sorry for calling her momma and she says that it's okay and that sometimes she pretends he's her kid.



Lindsey tries on her wedding dress. Nathan tucks Jamie into bed. She tells Nathan that he has red paint on his eyelid and tells him to close his eyes and then kisses him. Peyton goes by the gym and tells Lucas that she loves him and that what he wants is for her to let go and she's gonna do it. She tells him that she wants him to be happy with all his heart. Millie says maybe Mouth should try closing his eyes and she kissed his cheek. Owen got in his car and sees Brooke in the backseat naked. He said he was being existential but Brooke was being literal and serious. Then Brooke puts her dress back on and gives him a kiss on the cheek.



Peyton left some stuff off on Molly's front door. She writes her a letter saying: 'Dear Molly, This is gonna sound a little strange but I'd like you to paint over my old closet door. The thing is there is never a time when your convictions will be stronger and your motives will be more pure than they are right now which means you should chase whatever it is that excites you. Be confident and take risks and paint over my words so you can start writing your own. My story may have inspired you but I'm certain your story will inspire the next girl to live in our room. I want you to know that you don't need somebody to write about you in order for your life to mean something. You can write about yourself, make your own destiny then years from now the next girl will keep what you write on that door long enough to remind you of how inspired your life is. And you can tell that girl to paint over the door because you realize the words you wrote, the friends you had, the urgency you felt will always be there underneath the paint. The love you professed will always be there. The spark of something undeniable, the seed of hope, the truth for better and for worse, burning fiercely, just below the surface. Love Peyton.'



She draws a picture of a heart on a beach and the water washes it away. Haley comes back home and Nathan tells her that he wishes she was home more often. Lucas tells Lindsey that he wants to get married right away.
