  • Awesome Episode

    One of my favorite episodes. Lucas aNd Peyton finally get together 4 good. Ravens win the State Chmpionship. oh yeah it's a Boy!!
  • Climactic episode

    Climactic episode.

    Really pays off the earlier set ups.
  • Epic! Intense! Heartbreaking!

    This is one of the best episodes of the series and one of the best of S4. This is the moment everyone has been waiting for. The State Championship Game. This is the last high school game that the kids will ever play and Coach Whitley's final game ever, too. He's retiring after this. Peyton told Lucas she was in love with him and he didn't know what to say. Dan tells Nathan he has to lose the game. Game day is here. It's not a happy start. Nathan is sad because he has to lose the game. Lucas is angry at Nathan because he knows a lost would crush Whitey and everyone else. Peyton is sad because Lucas didn't give her an answer. Haley isn't feeling too well. Brooke is still angry at Peyton over Lucas. Dan for the first time in a very long time, he's helpless. There's nothing he can do to help Nathan out of the mess with Daunte. Deb's addiction is not getting better. Karen is holding up fine. Whitey is nervous. Lucas tells Skills that Nathan wants them to lose the game. Lucas and Skills agree that they cannot let that happen and they cannot tell Whitey, so they say they're going to freeze out Nathan. When everyone leaves the locker room, Luke decides not to take his heart medication before the game. Haley is not feeling better. Karen goes to Deb's house and tells her she needs to get up and go to her son's last ever high school game. At the start of the game the Ravens play well, then they start losing because Nathan isn't playing well. The girls are waiting for Haley to come out of the restroom and when she doesn't come out, Brooke goes to call for her and she gets no answer. Brooke goes in and Haley is on the floor in pain. Skills and Nathan get into a fight on the court, then halftime comes, the Ravens are losing. Deb rides with Karen to the game and she cannot even stay sober. The girls are at the clinic with Haley and she still hasn't been called. The lady at the front desk is being a major immature B**ch. The girls walk past her and get Haley to the doctor. We found out the recordings earlier was from 17 years ago when Dan played and blew the game. Haley gets checked out and she's fine and she's also having a boy! Nathan is down and he's worrying about Haley's whereabouts. She shows up and she tells him they're having a son. This news makes Nathan to want to win and he starts playing hard. Dan left, but after hearing the good news on the radio, he turns around and goes back to the game. Karen dropped a passed out Deb off at Rehab. Nathan secores, he then passes the ball to Lucas and Lucas makes the winning shot! The Ravens are Champions finally! Lucas tells Peyton that it's her he want standing next to him when all his dreams come true. There's a nice flashback to the very first episode when Luke told Peyton "I'll be seeing you" They kiss. Everyone is on cloud nine, but not for long. This is Tree Hill.

    Daunte tries to run over Nathan, but Haley pushes Nathan out the way and he hits Haley! Lucas comes running out and Nathan tells him what happened. Nathan goes after Daunte who's dead and starts to beat him, Dan stops him. Believing Nate killed Daunte, Dan takes the fall and tells Nathan to leave. Lucas passes out because he didn't take his medicine. He and Haley are rushed to the hospital. Brooke goes and tells Peyton the terrible news. Whitey stands on the now deserted street with tears in his eyes.

    An amazing episode. OTH was more than a superficial Teen Drama

  • Insane ending.

    Some You Give Away was a massive episode. A couple reunited. The Ravens won the state championship...and two peoples lives are at stake.

    Pay-off was everywhere here. After years, the Ravens finally won the championship. It was intense because it was unsure of whether Nathan would throw the game or not - but he didn't and Luke made the winning basket. It was so satisfying to see all the gang celebrating and so happy. That's four seasons in the making right there. But not only that, but Lucas and Peyton finally get together and everything seems like it's in it's right place. Except not.

    The ending was crazy. Daunte runs over Haley - WTF? That was big enough of a shock. It was horrible and emotional. And then Lucas has a heart attack? What. The. Fuck. Just insane drama right there. One of the best cliff-hangers the show has ever done. Almost finale like.

    Oh and Karen checks Deb back into rehab. Dan takes the blame for beating up Daunte. Brooke is revealed to be the one failing Calculus...just lots of interesting stuff for future episodes.

    A big episode, one of the shows most memorable.

  • It's You, Peyton!!!

    The way this episode began I was so scared that this was the outcome. I was afraid that Nathan actually threw the game and with the way he was crying I was scared for Haley and the baby. I was so relieved when learned they didn't actually lose and that the game hadn't been played yet.

    Nathan/Haley: I loved them in this episode!! It was scary when Haley collapsed and went to the hospital, but it was really sweet when Haley told Nathan they were having a boy. I love that hearing that new was what turned him around and made him start playing good and trying to win the game. I also loved Nathan's moments with Lucas. They are amazing as friends as well as brothers.

    Lucas/Peyton: Finally!!!!!!!!!!!! That's about the only word necessary to describe how I feel about them. They have loved each other for so long and I've wanted them to be together from the beginning and finally they are together!!! And it's cool that Brooke gave her permission.

    The Dan and Lucas stuff was sweet, but then they throw in the line about Lucas wishing Keith was there and it makes you hate Dan all over again.

    And that ending...just wow!! I couldn't believe it when Haley pushed Nathan out of the way and I really couldn't believe that Dan took the fall for attacking Daunte like that. But it doesn't really matter anyway, he looked dead when Nathan pulled him out of the car. And then Lucas has a heart attack because he didn't take his pills before the game because he wanted to do everything he could to win it.

    Overall this was an amazing episode. It's up there with my favorites. Along side the season 3 finale and 3x16 and a few other great episodes!!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (8)

    • Goof: There is a shot of Lucas in front of Mouth where Mouth is supposed to be talking, but his mouth doesn't move.

    • Number: 23

      When there is a timeout near the end of the game, there are 23 seconds left.

    • At 16:26, when Luke looks at Skills, just before the game starts, a camera pops in on the right side of the shot.

    • The final song in the episode, "Lessons Learned" - Ray Lamontagne, was originally meant to be used in 1.02. However, it is not used until this episode.

    • When Lucas is telling Peyton that it's her he wants next to him when his dreams come true and the camera is facing Lucas, you can see a piece of blue confetti above Peyton's ear. When the camera switches to face Peyton, the confetti is gone.

    • (Peyton talking to Brooke about Lucas while in the hospital's waiting room)
      Peyton: I asked him once who he wanted next to him when his dreams came true... he said you!

      Peyton is referring to a scene in the episode "Things I Forgot At Birth" where she asks Lucas this question before telling him about a plan to win back Brooke.

    • Right after Daunte hits Haley with the car, they cut to a shot of Nathan saying 'Haley!'. In the background, right when he is saying that, we see Lucas running around some tables in front of the Cafe almost about to make it into the street. In the next shot of Lucas, he is just finishing running around those tables which is different from the shot before.

    • Spoiler alert!:
      After the final time out of the Ravens, Lucas told Nathan "It does not mean anything if you miss the shot". This was what Nathan told Lucas in the season 1 finale "The Game That Plays Us". Likewise, Lucas makes the final shot and this time, he did it. In fact, he did it from the exact same spot that in that episode.

  • QUOTES (31)

    • Lucas: You know the night before I joined the team we battled each other on this court. I guess we'll be doing the same thing tomorrow.
      Nathan: Lucas you only play 15 minutes a game. You can't change this.
      Lucas: I can try. And I hated you that night we played, I thought you changed but I guess I was wrong.

    • Haley: (role-playing) My name's Rachel, and I'm a dumbass who's failing calculus, and I really like to hit on married guys.
      Rachel: See? Fun. Kind of like when I slept with Nathan. Damn, that was good.
      Brooke: Okay. Peyton here. I like to steal boys, but I'm afraid to tell them how I feel.
      Peyton: Speaking of stealing... Hi, I'm Brooke, and I stole my friend Peyton's artwork so I could put it on my clothing line, and I never even said thank you.
      Brooke: Okay, Peyton here again. Have I mentioned that if you love me, you're probably gonna die soon? See mother one and two.
      Haley: Brooke!
      Bevin: Hi, I'm Rachel and I have red hair.

    • (The girls break into the hospital corridor holding Haley)
      Nurse: Excuse me! I'll call security!
      Brooke: Yeah, call security! Why don't you call the police and tell them you're discriminating against cheerleaders?
      Bevin:Nice one, Brooke.
      Peyton: Can we get a doctor, please?
      Nurse: Listen to me, I don't care how special you are in your little high school, you can't just barge in here.
      Doctor: What's going on?
      Peyton: What's going on is that our friend is pregnant and she's in a lot of pain, and this bitch is about to get her ass kicked!
      Doctor: Ok, just calm down. I'll take a look at her. You can all wait in the lobby and... cheer for something.
      Haley: Thanks, you guys.
      Brooke: It's gonna be OK, Haley.

      (Haley and the doctor enter a room and the girls walk away from the nurse. They all turn their backs at the same time)

      Brooke: Whore!
      Peyton: Slut!
      Rachel: Bitch!
      Bevin: Thank you.

    • Dan: (about Daunte) Nathan! He's dead. You killed him, son.

    • Radio Announcer: Time is running out, now. And I tell you, you've gotta feel for Nathan Scott. I mean, sure, he has made some mistakes, but you get the sense that if this is how it ends he's never going to forgive himself. And Lucas Scott is being swarmed! I wouldn't doubt it if they didn't carry the kid out of here tonight and never bring him back. I have never seen some of these kids so happy. And can you blame them? They've been waiting a long time for this moment. And there at the center of it all is Whitey Durham; standing alone, taking it all in. Ladies and gentlemen, the Tree Hill Ravens are champions at last, and there's not a dry eye in the house.

    • Whitey: You have made a hell of a comeback. You played as team. Even if we lose this thing, it's still a damn fine moral victory. Now, maybe that's okay with you. Maybe you want to look back and tell your grandkids about the state championship you almost won.
      Nathan: No way. We're winning this game, right, Luke?
      Lucas: You tell me.
      Nathan: We're winning this game.

    • Nathan: Where's Haley at?
      Lucas: She's probably putting money down on Pontiac.

    • Deb: I never congratulated you on your pregnancy. Although you have to admit it's pretty strange.
      Karen: Strange? How?
      Deb: How Keith was there for Dan's child and now Dan wants to be there for Keith's.

    • Lucas: (about Skills) So you gonna tell him he's not going to college or should I?
      Nathan: It's one game. It's one high-school basketball game. You think it really matters if we don't win?
      Lucas: I don't know. How about you ask them?

    • Karen: (to Deb) Take a shower, get dressed, and see if you can find what's left of your dignity. Nathan is playing his last high-school basketball game ever, and you're going to it whether you like it or not.

    • Rachel: I don't know about the balloon, but this blows. When am I gonna ever need to know this?
      Haley: I don't know. Probably when you're failing calculus and want to graduate. Oh wait, that's right now!

    • Mouth: I've been waiting for this day my whole life.
      Whitey: Me too, son. Me too.

    • Lucas: You know, the night before I joined the team, we battled each other on this court. I guess we'll be doing the same thing tomorrow.
      Nathan: Lucas, you only play 15 minutes a game. You can't change this.
      Lucas: I can try. And I hated you that night we played. I thought you changed, but... Guess I was wrong.

    • Skills: You said "Oh!"? Hold on. Peyton says "I'm in love with you" and you say "Oh"? Nice work player!
      Lucas: She caught me by surprise, what was I supposed to say, huh?
      Skills: Not "Oh". Ok, what else did you say?
      Lucas: I mumbled something about us being friends and then I left.
      Skills: You believe that? That you and P. Sawyer are just friends!?
      Lucas: Look, you know what Skills? For a long time I thought that maybe we'd be something more. It just never seemed to work out, you know? So, at a certain point you just gotta face the fact that it's not meant to be.
      Skills: Even if she wants more?
      Lucas: She's just a little confused. She's had a hard year and I happened to be there and rescue her a few times.
      Skills: So maybe you're the one who's confused! Cause you didn't just happen to rescue her a few times. You didn't just happen to run into the school that day or save her from psycho-Derek. Peyton happened to be there, but you chose to be there. So, maybe you gotta think about that.

    • Lucas: What do you think you're doing?
      Nathan: Trying to win this game. You gonna help me?
      Lucas: No. But you can help me.

    • Mouth: You know, say what you will about the ravages of sports in this corporate age where overpaid athletes expect prima donna treatment, but there's still something so unifying about sporting in its purest form -- when athletes rise above themselves and touch greatness, and in doing so remind us all that we all have greatness inside of us.

    • Brooke: So what exactly did he say to you? Lucas, when you told him?
      Peyton: Oh!
      Brooke: What?
      Peyton: He said "Oh!".
      (they both smile)
      Brooke: Boys can be so dumb.
      Peyton: Yeah, well I probably shoudn't have been surprised. I asked him once who he wanted next to him when his dreams came true. He said you.
      Brooke: Why would you tell me that?
      Peyton: I would have given anything to hear him say me.

    • (Lucas and Haley on the counter talking, Peyton approaches them)
      Peyton: How are you feeling Haley?
      Lucas: Hales, you know my girlfriend Peyton, right?
      Peyton: Oh God. (Peyton leaves embarrassed)
      Haley: What? Since when?
      Lucas: Since now, I hope!

    • Nathan: You and Peyton together now? I saw the kiss.
      Lucas: Maybe. (smiling happily)
      Nathan: It's about time man!

    • (The beginning of the episode)
      Announcer: And there is no joy in Tree Hill tonight because the Ravens have lost the state championship. Whitey Durham is the picture of a broken man, and you have to wonder if this opportunity will ever come again for the Tree Hill Ravens. There are tears and there are questions, starting with 'What got into Scott?' I mean, he's got a lot of explaining to do. No doubt about it hearts are breaking in Tree Hill tonight.

    • Nathan: Listen, there's a reason I played so bad tonight at first.
      Haley: What do you mean? (Daunte drives right towards them)
      Haley: (pushing Nathan out of the way) Nathan look out!
      (the car hits Haley)

    • Lucas: Hey, doesn't mean anything if you can't hit the shot.
      Nathan: Sounds familiar.
      Lucas: Let's do this little brother.

    • Lucas: This is good, isn't it? Us?
      Peyton: It's perfect!

    • Brooke: (speaking to haley on the sidelines) It's ok preggers, just breathe. Can't have you popping out another cheerleader.
      Haley: It's a boy.
      Brooke: What?
      Haley: I'm having a boy!

    • Mouth: And the Ravens are heating up! 
      Gigi: Oh, they're already hot, Mouth.

    • Mouth: The North Carolina State Championship game, brought to you by Chili's.
      Gigi: I want my baby back, baby back, baby back... (awkward pause, as Mouth looks at her) Barbeque sauce.

    • Haley: (to Rachel) Do you know the meaning of the word, Honor? Of course not- it's you.

    • Nathan: I need to ask you a question. If I don't go to Duke, if I don't play college basketball- I mean if today is the best it ever gets for me, will that be enough?
      Haley: Of course! Nathan, as long as you are a good husband and a good father to your son.
      Nathan: What?
      Haley: It's a boy Nathan. You're gonna have a son! Although I have to tell you, someday he's gonna tease his father for playing like crap at the state championship. You might wanna change that.

    • Peyton: You were wrong. You said in the car that I was afraid to tell Lucas I loved him but I did. I told him last night. He doesn't wanna be with me. You can smile now.

    • Peyton: I'll be seeing you.
      (walks away)
      Lucas: Peyton! It's you.
      Peyton: What?!
      Lucas: When all my dreams come true, the one I want next to me. It's you. It's you Peyton.
      (kisses Peyton)

    • (To Mouth)
      Gigi: You're sexy when you talk like that.

  • NOTES (8)

    • In the state championship, the Ravens play Pontiac H.S., which is actually the school where Mark Schwahn (the creator of the show) went to.

    • On the season 4 DVD set, there is one unaired scene. It is between Dan and Whitey as Dan apologizes for his anger 18 years ago at the championship game.

    • On the season 4 DVD set, Creator/Executive Produer Mark Schwahn and Rick Fox (Daunte Jones) host a commentary for this episode.

    • In the audio commentary, during the scene when Dan and Lucas clean the counter, Mark Schwahn states that Paul (Dan) was holding his hand strangely because it was injured. He had to work for weeks without a cast because there wasn't an excuse for Dan to have one.

    • According to Mark Schwahn, this episode is where the show leads comes full circle. Everything from the last four years has been building to this episode.
