  • Loved this episode!

    Woah, just a simple, fun epiosde - Resolve was brilliant, one of the best episodes of the season.

    Peyton and Lucas are completely happy. I loved when Peyton introduced him to her mother at the grave - oddly romantic. The cookie dough fight at the end was hilarious and they really do have great chemistry together. It's so good to finally see them as a couple. And Brooke goes out with clean teen Chase - who I thought I hated when I originally watched a few years ago but I actually quite liked him here. Their scenes were cute and they seem good together. I did think Rachel being kicked out of the clean teens was brilliantly funny.

    And even the Nathan and Skills stripping sub-plot was fun and light-hearted. Very sweet when Nathan bought Haley that maternity prom dress at the end too. Deb overdosing was a nice bit of dark drama in teh face of the rest of the episode. That is rock bottom and hopefully Deb will stop all this now. Oh, and Karen asks Dan to dinner and tells him Luke thinks Jimmy didn't kill Keith. Dan's face was priceless. Oh dear, time's running out.

    Just a really good episode full of sweet, funny and dramatic moments.

  • I love cookie dough fights

    Lucas/Peyton: They are so happy and so in love. Everything about them in this episode was perfect. From the note in class, the kiss, the cookie dough fight....I loved it all.

    Although it's impossible for Lucas to know that Keith was still alive when Jimmy shot himself it is nice that someone finally knows. Besides us and the mystery person who has been stalking Dan.

    Nathan/Haley: Aww!! I love how emotional Haley has become with all the pregnancy hormones and how freaked out she is about not having a dress to wear to prom and having the cast on her leg. The ending with them when he showed her the maternity prom dress was super sweet.

    I loved Mouth, Nathan, and Skills stripping. It was super funny!! And it made for a nice funny episode in the middle of all the drama.

    I really like Chase!! I think him and Brooke would be great together if she wasn't lying about being a Clean Teen and cheating on the calculus test. And things with that test are heading for trouble now that Turner knows tests are missing.

    Also, Karen and Dan are getting closer which is really weird. I feel like I could accept it if like the characters on the show I didn't know what he did, but knowing that he killed Keith it's just wrong for them to be together. And I couldn't believe that Deb tried to kill herself, but what should we have expected after Dan talked to her the way he did.moreless
  • Season 4, Episode 12.

    This episode started out great! Rachel, the Clean Teen, started her day with a "bang." Lucas read his letter to Peyton in front of everyone, and Peyton kissed him in class. They got to spend detention together. :) I loved Deb's scene with Karen and Dan. Brooke gets an A on the test she cheated on! She says she is a smart virgin, and Rachel calls her "the new Mouth." Peyton and Lucas are way to mushy in love... Peyton introduces Lucas to her dead mother at the cemetery... Lucas talks to Keith then, alone. Lucas finally realizes Jimmy didn't kill Keith... 18 episodes later...moreless
  • I loved this episode!

    Deb notices that Dan is spending a lot of time with Karen. Principal Turner finds out that a test is missing, and whoever took it will be expelled. Brooke panics, but Rachel is calm. Rachel is dismissed from the Clean Teens after a tape proves that she's not sincerely a Clean Teen. A new guy, Chase, joins the club. Brooke takes interest in him. Skills suggests to Nathan that he get money by stripping. Nathan reluctantly does it and Mouth choreographs it. Haley wants to find the perfect prom dress. Lucas tells Peyton about his dream with Keith and that Jimmy might not have killed Keith. He also tells Karen, who gets upset. After Deb gets a talk from Dan about how he never loved her and when she tries to see Nathan, but instead knocks Haley down and Nathan tells her to stay away, she takes a bunch of pills at once and goes to the hospital. Dan has dinner with Karen. Nathan, Mouth and Skills dance and have fun! Nathan buys Haley the perfect dress that fits her! Brooke and Chase go on a date, but she sort of feels guilty about lying about her Clean Teen issues and her Calculus exam (she got an A because she cheated). He wants an honest girl, which Brooke isn't right now.

    This was a great episode! Mouth is always funny when he dances! I really like Chase! Deb is really falling from where she could be. I actually like Dan and Karen together and it's weird. This episode gets a 10!moreless
  • This was a very good episode, but I can't help but wonder that if there all happy now, how long can it last?

    This was good, it was good to see the characters happy for once, some of this was a bit soppy but it didn't really bother me here. Lucas and peyton I think are good together, I liked how it ashowed us that they are happier together, the cookie thing at the end could have annoyed me, but it didn't, it was a great scene.

    I'm not a fan of Chase, so the introduction of him didn't do much for me, we were shown a new side of Brooke anway, I thought the whole Clean Teen thing was funny, the emergencu meeting at times was amusing. Deb taking an overdose, was beloevable, after we spent the episode watching her life turn to ruin, Dan was interestuing to watch, he felt no remorse.

    Lucas figuring out that Jimmy didn't kill Keith could become interesting. The stripping scenes were funny, Nathan and Haley are good again, thank god. A great erpisode, it only gets better.moreless

    • (During class, Lucas is passing a note to Peyton that gets intercepted by the teacher)
      Teacher: Well, well, passing notes Mr. Scott? How about we share this with the class?
      Lucas: (not one bit worried) I'd be happy to. (turning to Peyton) Ahm, it just says, Peyton you look amazing. (Peyton smiles happily and looks down a little embarassed) And I can't wait till class is over so I can look at those green eyes and kiss your perfect lips. (turning to the teacher) Did I miss anything?
      Teacher: No, that, that pretty much covers it. Peyton, care to respond?
      (At that Peyton leans over to Lucas and kisses him. The kiss leaves both of them staring dreamily at each other.) Oh, young love. At least you'll be together in detention.

      Deb: Looks like you got yours neutered.
      Karen: Morning Deb. What are you here for, target practice?
      Deb: You know for a smart woman you're being really stupid letting Dan into your life.
      (Dan raises his head)
      Deb: The one that abandoned you when you were pregnant and left Lucas fatherless, the one who treated Keith horribly his whole life. You remember Keith don't you? The man whose baby you're carrying!
      Dan:(to Deb with anger) That's enough!
      Deb: He would roll over in his grave if he could see the two of you together.
      (Deb walks out)
      Dan: I think my being here is a bad idea.

      Deb: I messed up so many things. Things I can't fix.
      Dan: How long is this gonna take? I'm running low on minutes this month.
      Deb: Please be good to Nathan. I failed him too many times to count. He deserves so much better.

      Lucas: Well, if we're gonna go 80s, I'm more of a Van Halen fan.
      Peyton: No, it's just...everything is better now. Pinks are pinker and blues are bluer and even my favorite foods taste yummier.
      Lucas: Yummier?
      Peyton: Yummier. What's your favorite food?
      Lucas: Chocolate chip cookies.
      Peyton: I'll tell you what, they probably taste so much better.

      Peyton: See? You are so feeling the love.
      Lucas: Sure, anything for a cookie.

    • (Lucas enters Karen's café)
      Karen: Hey, I almost didn't recognize you without Peyton attached to your hip.
      Lucas: Funny.
      Karen: Well, if it matters, I approve. You've had the biggest crush on her for years.
      Lucas: Mom, guys don't have crushes. Just girls have crushes.
      Karen: What do guys have? The hots?
      Lucas: (Really uncomfortable) The hots. Seriously, where do you come up with this stuff?
      Karen: My point is, that I am very happy that the two of you have finally found each other.

    • Skills: So, how's everything going with you and Lucas? I mean, are you happy?
      Peyton: I'm happy.
      Skills: That's my girl. You know, love sometimes don't really make sense. I mean, look at me and Bevin. But you two make sense.

    • (Peyton and Lucas at the cementery at Peyton's mom's grave)
      Peyton: Hi mom, it's me. This is Lucas, the boy I've been telling you about. Look what he's done, he's got me smiling. Can you believe it?
      Lucas: Hey Mrs Sawyer. I just want you to know that Peyton is the best thing I have in my life. I wouldn't even be here if it wasn't for her.
      Peyton: Likewise.

    • Deb: You're a miserable ass of a man. Nathan and I are so much better off without you poisoning our lives...
      Dan: Nathan and I? Take another pill, boozie. Nathan got you out of his life long before I did.

    • Brooke: Check me out, I'm a smart virgin.
      Rachel: Great, you're the new Mouth.

    • Deb: I thought vampires had to be invited in.
      Dan: And I thought water melted witches, yet here we are. That was quite the performance you put on today.
      Deb: Why are you messing with Karen's head, hasn't she suffered enough.
      Dan: You don't think my intentions toward Karen are sincere.
      Deb: You don't have a sincere bone in your body, Dan.
      Dan: Do you remember the night before our wedding.
      Deb: You pour water in my face, and now you want to take a trip down memory lane. (Dan hands her a hankercheif). You disappeared after the rehearsal dinner and my parents were furious. Is that what you wanted to hear?
      Dan: I drove to Tree Hill, spent the night parked in front of Karen's house. I knew I was on the verge of making a hug mistake. You see, Karen was the love of my life, but I was too proud to tell her. I never loved you Deb, I settled for you. And I mean that, sincerely.
      Deb: You're a miserable a** of a man. And Nathan and I are so much better off without you poisining our lives.
      Dan: Nathan and I? Take another pill boozy, Nathan cut you out of his life long before I did.

    • Lucas: (voiceover) Happiness comes in many forms. In the company of good friends, in the feeling you get when you make someone else's dreams come true, or in a promise of hope renewed. It's OK to let yourself be happy, because you never know how fleeting that happiness might be.

    • Rachel: (About her "Clean Teen" T-shirt) This shirt is like a guy magnet. I've never gotten so much attention with my clothes on.

    • Lucas: (voiceover) Sometimes pain becomes such a huge part of your life that you expect it to always be there, because you can't remember a time in your life when it wasn't. But then one day you feel something else. Something that feels wrong only because it's so unfamiliar, and in that moment you realize you're happy.

    • Skills: (About Nathan's dancing) Is he as bad as I think he is?
      Mouth: No, he's worse.

    • Peyton: Hey are you OK?
      Lucas: You're going to think this is crazy but I don't think Jimmy killed Keith.
