  • Brooke finds out!

    Peyton and Lucas deserved what they got. They tried to hide their relationship as much as possible throughout the episode, Lucas didn't even tell Brooke when he dumped her, but when Peyton finally decides to let Lucas go for Brooke, it doesn't mean much. As Lucas said, they've already betrayed her. And I'm glad Brooke found out. 'I don't care much if I see either of you again!' Good one, Brooke. While Peyton and Lucas might make more sense, Brooke had been so kind to Lucas and it was just horrible what they did. Lucas tries to compare this to the way Karen is treating Keith - what an ass. I like Keith but Karen has every right to be angry with him. I hope they become friends again soon...

    The Deb/Dan drama has become kind of boring now. Deb was desperate, Dan was manipulative. I liked the scenes with Nathan confiding in Haley though. And she sings! Set up for big story lines in the future there. Karen letting Jake bring Jenny to work at the cafe was sweet - I like him as a character. Keith losing his business sucks, especially as he was helping Lucas.

    Good episode but just don't like what some of the characters are doing.

  • Lucas comes home from the hospital.

    Lucas comes home from the hospital and breaks up with Brooke so he can be with Peyton, but doesn't tell Brooke that's the reason.

    Brooke is upset and goes to Peyton. Peyton decides she can't hurt Brooke like that and tells Lucas they can't be together, but Brooke found out they were sneaking around after she caught them together on Peyton's webcam.

    Dan and Deb's divorce gets nasty. Dan threatens to tell some secret about Deb so Nathan will move in with him.

    Haley sings for Nathan at the cafe which was amazing.

    Keith puts the garage up for sale after he paid the medical bills for Lucas.moreless

  • Season 1, Episode 15.

    After his near-death experience, Lucas decides he made the wrong choice between Brooke and Peyton, so he breaks things off with Brooke and secretly rekindles his romance with Peyton. However, the truth becomes obvious after he is rushed to the emergency room again and the girls come face to face in the hospital. Meanwhile, unable to pay his mortgage after paying for Lucas' hospital bill, Keith puts his garage up for sale. "Elsewhere" is an awesome song! Bethany Joy Galeotti is an amazing singer! I can't believe Lucas broke up with Brooke! :( I feel so bad for her. :( But at least Peyton and Lucas can be together now... I like Brucas though. But Brooke deserves better. =]moreless
  • I thought this episode really brought out Payton's and Lucas's character. Sophia Bush did a hell of a job in this episode as well I could tell Mark Shawarn was proud of this episoe just by airing it. Dan is just a major ass for doing that to Deb...moreless

    In this episode Deb and Dan keep fighting over Nathan. they are at war with eachother. Dan tells the lawyer that Deb threatened to murder him but she only said"so help me god i will stab you in your sleep" she tells the lawyer that it was a figure of speech which i believe because i use that saying sometime too lol. Also I hated that Keith had to buisness up for sale that must have sucked for him I felt bad for him when he did that. I absoutely loved Bethany's voice i thought she did an outstand job with that song and that song was amazing for that seen. I also feel bad for Nathan because he gets caught in the middle of their parents fighting and it's not fair to him at all. He is right when he tells Haley "the worst things get with his parents the better things get with her!" I can actually see that and why he said that. I loved the artwork on the river court i thought the kids did a great job with that. anyways that's my opinion...moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • The angles on Peyton's webcam change between the two shots at the end. When Brooke points out that she saw them on the cam, it cuts to a cam POV showing Peyton on the bed with her head on the left side of the screen. Later when it shows you what Lucas is seeing on his own computer, she's on the right without having moved.

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Nathan: (turning the answering machine off) How great is it that dad has an off button now?

    • Haley: You're lucky you didn't die cause I would have killed you.

    • Lawyer: Dan, Deb had made it more than clear that she intends to divorce you.
      Dan: Or murder me. Did she tell you she threatened to stab me in my sleep?
      Deb: It was a figure of speech.

    • Karen: I left you with the most important thing in my life, and you let me down. At a time when I really thought we had something.
      Keith: We do. Those six weeks were amazing to me. For once I felt like I was in Lucas' life in a real way. You have to know how much that meant to me.

    • Peyton: I was so afraid you weren't going to wake up.
      Lucas: What? And miss out on being with you?

    • Brooke: I don't know what hurts worse, you and Lucas sneaking around behind my back or you lying about it to my face.
      Peyton: Brooke...
      Brooke: No. The next time you wanna steal my boyfriend, you might want to turn that thing off. (Looks to the web cam) I went into his room to check on him and his computer was on. I know you two were together. He meant everything to me, Peyton. And I was ready to try and be his friend if that's what he needed. And now I don't really care if I see either one of you again.

    • Lucas: I'm just going to need some time to figure some stuff out.
      Brooke: Whatever you need, I'm here for you.
      Lucas: Yeah see that's the thing.
      Brooke: Are you breaking up with me?
      Lucas: I just think it's the best thing for right now.
      Brooke: Maybe for you.
      Lucas: Brooke, I'm sorry.
      Brooke: Apparently not enough.

    • Brooke: Hey I want you to know I'm here for you. Whatever you need. And if she's not home, I might even give you a sponge bath.
      Lucas: Actually I can't do that for a while.
      Brooke: What? Bathe?
      Lucas: No. You know. Sex.
      Brooke: Oh. That sucks. A little cardio might just be what you need though.
