  • Party!

    Typical of Tree Hill to throw a spanner in the works just as Peyton and Brooke inch towards getting closer. Sad Songs for Dirty Lovers was an entertaining hour to say the least.

    Lucas and Peyton do get closer and nearly take the next step. I like how they're just happy and have normal couple problems now. They are good together. Likewise with Nathan and Haley. So they had to screw things up by revealing that sex tape with Brooke and Nathan. It was certainly shocking and loved how it ended with everyone at the party just staring at Brooke thinking what the hell did you do. Drama, drama. And nice foreshadowing with Brooke and Nathan playing outside in the sprinklers.

    I loved that Haley slapped Rachel and threw the drink in her face. Even though she was wrongly accused, it was a long time coming after all the stunts she pulled with Nathan. Classic feisty Haley! Love her. Mouth and Shelly was pretty awful. Why should I care? They literally got together last episode so this love thing was pretty bull. Too soppy and OTT for words.

    Rachel taking the fall for Brooke was actually quiet sweet in a way, I even feel a little sorry for her. How awkward was it when Brooke walked in on Peyton and Lucas? But at least she and Peyton were on talking terms...not for long.

    Who doesn't love a party?

  • Party!!!!!!

    Rachel takes the fall for taking the calculus test after Turner has them take a retest to find out who cheated. It was really nice of Rachel to take the fall for this since it was her idea to begin with so that group wouldn't get in trouble. It sucked that Turner fired Haley though. It's not like she let Rachel have the key. She stole the key and the test. It was ridiculous to include Haley in the blame. But I did love when Haley attacked Rachel. That slap was brilliant and well deserved!!

    Lucas and Peyton are so perfect!! I just absolutely love them!! I love that they ended up back in a bedroom at the Scott house just like in season 1. So cute!!

    Haley is awesome! It's so sweet that she decided to move into Deb's house so she won't be alone. And I love that they decided to throw a big party with all the alcohol they found hidden around the house.

    And that tape...oh wow!! Never would have imagined Nathan and Brooke hooked up like that.moreless
  • Season 4, Episode 14.

    Wow. Great episode! This was really a series classic. It was so well written! I loved it! Nathan has a party, where Mouth ends up losing his virginity to Clean Teen Shelley. I couldn't believe it! I loved that Brooke almost got caught cheating. I can't believe Rachel did that for her! That was so sweet! I loved when Haley threw the drink in Rachel's face for getting her fired, and then slapped her for trying to sleep with Nathan. They almost fought. I thought it was nice when Brooke and Nathan had that friendly moment under the sprinklers. I never knew they were together! The sex tape thing rocked! 10/10.moreless
  • Haley finds out that Brook is the one who stole the exam, then she confronts Rachel at the party, A tape from Nathan's and Brook's past comes up threatening Payton's and Brook's friendship once again. I loved the seen w Nathan and Brook.moreless

    Ok let me just start by saying wow to Mark Shawarn for this episode! I thought it was amazing! anyways cudos to James Laffery and Sophia Bush on that seen with the bench outside of the house. I felt really bad for Payton. I mean she just got her friend back then her friend went and did something like that... that must have sucked. and yes Chase is annoying the hell outta me.. i don't like him he was also annoying on "The Hills" if anyone remembers that. but I don't know maybe it's just me anyways I loved the Lucas and Payton seen in her room after Lucas tells Payton to back off then she gets pissed for taking her side. I would have gotten pissed as well. also i don't remember if it was this episode or the next episode but the catfight between Brook and Payton was halerious! YES finally we see some good old fashion fighting on the show between the two of them! but somehow over the years Payton let it go and they became friends again. well that's my opinionmoreless
  • I loved it!

    Principal Turner finds out that Rachel is the one who stole the test because Rachel switches hers and Brooke's quizzes for calculus. Skills, Nathan and Mouth decide to throw a party after finding tons of booze at the house. Deb is in rehab and is now allowed to have visitors. Nathan visits and gives her tough love. Haley loses her tutoring job because she was tutoring Rachel. Shelly breaks up with Mouth. At the party, they hook up and Mouth loses his virginity to her, but she says that they can't see each other. Peyton and Lucas decide to have sex. Dan wants to be in Lucas' life more. Brooke gets an invitation for Victoria's Secret to franchise Clothes Over Bros. Dan asks Karen to the prom as chaperones. There is a sex tape of Nathan and Brooke from the year before and many people are shocked and hurt.

    This episode was great! I can't believe Nathan and Brooke! I never pictured them together. I love Mouth and Shelly together, but I wish that Mouth would've waited until marriage and Shelly would've waited too. I love the idea of Clean Teens, but I wish they stuck to their principles. This episode gets a 9.5 out of 10!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • Goof: When Nathan and Brooke's sex tape is played at the party, Nathan's appears to be the same length that it is in this episode. However, when the tape was supposedly made, in the earlier seasons, Nathan's hair was much shorter.

    • In the scene where Haley is telling Nathan about getting fired from the tutor center, the camera angle is shot from a distance, and she is laying back against some pillows. But in the middle of Haley's sentence, the angle switches to a close-up, and she falls back against the same pillows she was already laying against.

    • In the past footage of Nathan playing, we see him wearing the black Ravens uniform but they said that those uniforms were new and in honor of Keith after the school shootings.

    • We find out that Rachel has been to four other high schools before becoming a student at Tree Hill High.

  • QUOTES (31)

    • (Throws a drink in Rachel's face)

    • (Mouth and Shelly getting dress after sleeping together)

      Mouth: Hey, hey don't cry. Skills won't tell anyone, I promise.
      Shelly: You don't understand, I gotta go.
      (She finds her shirt)
      Mouth: But tonight, this I mean, this was the start of really good. This was the start of us. Can't you feel that?

      Shelly: I know it's my fault. (whispers) I'm sorry.
      Mouth: It's just hard, you know. I look at you, and it hurts so much to know that we can't be together.
      Shelly: Mouth...
      Mouth: And, I know you're a clean teen Shelly, but what do you want me to say? That I don't want to sleep with you? That I don't want the my first time to be with you? Well, I can't say that 'cuz that would be a lie. From the moment I saw you, I was hooked and then I got to look into to those beautiful eyes and kiss you. And now, that's all I want to do.

      Haley: Babe, if anybody's needed tough love, it's your mom.
      Nathan: I know. But she's gonna be released in a few days and she told me she's scared to be alone in the house. She's gonna slip Haley, I can feel it!
      Haley: Oh, then why don't we do something about it?
      Nathan: Like what?
      Haley: I don't know... we need to save money, she needs help. We could let the apartment go and we could move in to her house. Yeah! Look, it'd be perfect! We'd save a ton of money, we'd be there to watch her 24/7, and everybody wins!
      Nathan: And Peyton thinks I'm a martyr
      Haley: Well, you know, she's your family, she's a train wreck but she's your mom.

Nothing's going to bring them back. But you got a ton of people that love you out there and in a few months, most of those people are gonna go their seperate ways. So what do you say big brother?

    • Skills: Nathan's mom is like the easter bunny of booze.

      This refers to the tradition of hiding eggs for children to find on Easter which also features the Easter bunny, just like the way Nathan's mom hid liquor all over her house.

    • Peyton: I know there is no tenth chapter in Great Gatsby.

      This refers to F. Scott Fitzgerald's book, which is about a tragic romance between a man and the woman he cannot have. In fact, it does only have nine chapters.

    • The title alludes the 2003 album by The National.
