When Lucas is sitting in the hallway of the hospital, the elevator door opens and Haley, Nathan and Deb walk out of it and see him. While they are talking, it is very obvious that they are on the first floor because you can see the number 1 on the elevator behind them. They would not be coming down from a higher floor to see Lucas if they had just gotten there.
Haley gives Lucas a bind copy of his novel, that Karen made for him as a graduation present. The name of the book is An Unkindness Of Ravens, which was going to be the show's title. Also, is a reference to the pilot episode:
Haley: So, Luke, what are ravens? I mean, more than one.
Lucas: An unkindness.
When the doctor tells Lucas that his mother's condition is worse, she tells him that they can't be aggressive with the antibiotics because of her pregnancy. Earlier Lucas had said that Karen had eclampsia. Eclapmsia is high blood pressure and protienuria during pregnancy. It is not treated with antibiotics because there is no infection. In fact, Karen should have had a C-section immediately after lapsing into a coma instead of waiting to see if the condition got worse. Waiting can cause the other complications Lucas mentioned earlier when he was explaining what was wrong with his mother.
When Lucas shoots the gun, the bullet hole is in the wall next to the kitchen door, but when Deb goes to the house, the bullet hole moved from the wall to the white door frame.
With Karen's baby being born just a couple days or so before Jamie (but possibly early, Karen didn't appear as far along size wise and Haley) than she would have had to become pregnant around September or so which doesn't make since. The shooting was in January if you notice the dates on the tombstones and Keith had just come back a few episodes before. He wasn't there at the beginnng of the school year when she would have most likely conceived.
Bevin's middle name is Evan.
This is the first episode where it is really obvious that Barbara Alyn Woods (Deb) is pregnant.
When the friends are persuading Lucas to go to graduation, Brooke stands before the table behind them, but when they all walk away she walks from next to the table.
When Haley and Nathan arrive at the hospital, Haley hugs Lucas. When she's hugging lucas, her left arm is under Lucas, his right arm. But when they let go Haley's left arm is on top of lucas, his right shoulder.
The medical condition Lucas said his Mom had is Eclampsia. One of the symptoms is seizures. This is a goof: Eclampsia does not start randomly due to stress. It is preceded by pre-eclampsia which has many symptoms. If Karen had been ready to go into a coma from eclampsia, she would have been swollen all over, including her face
On the fridge, behind Brooke as she and Chase talk in the beginning of the episode at her and Peyton's apartment, there are a few pictures visible. One of them is what looks like Nathan in Lucas' jersey, but probably is Lucas, one of Peyton and Brooke (looks like it could be the one they took in S1 while lying on Peyton's bed, when Brooke came by to borrow Peyton's camera), one of Jake and baby Jenny and one of Nathan and Haley's first wedding. In the last picture, the fridge magnet has been placed right on top of Haley/Bethany's face.
Lucas: Graduation day at Tree Hill High. A day when we officially leave the refuge of high school and begin our real lives. But what are those lives as we go into the world? What matters most? Is it about the things we create? The things we achieve? The awards we win? Is it about who we are when we fail? What's more important: what we become or how we become it?
(Brooke tells Principal Turner she stole the calculus exam.)
Brooke: Just before you do, can I say something? You know when I was a freshman I wasn't... a very good person. I mean, sure I was popular and dating seniors but as a person... I was pretty lost. And over the last four years I have been forced to grow up. I stopped letting boys define me and I started believing in myself and in... my potential. And I run for student council president and I designed the clothing line. (beat) And somewhere along the way the lost little party-girl became the girl on the wall of honour. And... I know what I did was wrong, Mr Turner, I know. But the girl I was when I came to this school I'm not so sure she would have... And isn't that the point of high school? I mean, isn't that what you guys have been trying to teach us for the last four years?
Principal Turner: Actually we have been trying to teach you not to cheat in calculus... But the rest of this is certainly important too. I imagine you have been feeling a good amount of guilt over letting your friend Rachel take the fault.
Brooke: Yes sir, I mean... (she starts speeding up her voice) Even though she told me she did do a bunch of things over the last years that would have got her expelled anyway, uh... (slowly) Yes, I have so... that's why I thought that I should come forward.
Principal Turner: You know Brooke, I must seem ancient to you. Your teacher probably seem irrelevant, but one day you look back and things won't seem so... us against them (beat) I assume you're going to college...
Brooke: Yes, sir, I... I hope so now.
Principal Turner: To study?
Principal Turner: Not engineering? Or anything requiring intense of calculus?
Brooke: No sir.
Principal Turner: Good. (beat) Go graduate.
Brooke: Really? Are you serious? Uh... Thank you! I don't even...
Chase runs toward Brooke and Principal Turner
Chase: Principal Turner... Principal Turner! Look, if you suspend her I think you are really making a huge mistake. I'm sorry, I didn't mean to barge in like this, but...
Brooke: Shut up! Chase, I love you for this, really but... Shut up! (to Principal Turner) Uh, I'm sorry, we'll... We'll just go! (to Chase) Go... Thanks!
(Brooke and Chase walk away. Turner smiles)
(After Lucas shoots the gun).
Lucas: Get out.
Dan: Lucas, she could lose the baby.
Lucas: I missed on purpose. I will not miss again.
Dan: You're making a big mistake.
Lucas: Get out.
Bevin: (to her father) My boyfriend's black.
Mr.Taylor: (to Bevin) That's ok, honey. My son's black too. We deal with it.
(about the point shaving issue)
Mr. Taylor: You regret it?
Nathan: Every day.
Mr. Taylor: Because you got caught?
Nathan: Mr. Taylor, you seem like a good man but the thing is I made a mistake and now I'm paying for it. Those 32 minutes should not define me for the rest of my life.
Mr. Taylor: I was hoping you'd say that. Now all you gotta do is believe it.
Brooke: Priceless! (imitating Chase's voice) Mister Turner, if you suspend her you are really making a huge mistake!
Chase: I was trying to help!
Brooke: I know. You were very cute.
Chase: I couldn't just stand by and let you not graduate. Besides, I got you to say you love me.
Brooke: I did not!
Chase: Yes, you did. You told me to shut up and then you said (imitating Brooke's voice) I love you for this, go...
Brooke: So what if I did, uh? So what if I do?
(They get closer)
Mouth: (to Skills about Bevin's parents who don't know he is black) This is probably not even a big deal. I mean if I were her parents I would be more worried of you being you, than you being black.
Nathan: I know you've been a bad guy, dad. And for a long time I've wondered if you'd ever change but... lately I've seen you change and I've been so proud of you. Now they're saying... they're saying that you killed uncle Keith, dad. Mom said it, and Lucas said it too but... I know they're wrong, okay? Because I know you could never do something like that. So just... Dad just look me in the eye and tell me that they're wrong. And I promise I'll stand by you because I love you dad. Just tell me they're wrong, please.
Dan: I can't do that.
Peyton: (walks in as Lucas is holding his baby sister) Oh she's beautiful.
Lucas: Yeah, I'm afraid to move or I'm gonna break her.
Peyton: You're not gonna break her.
Lucas: You wanna hold her?
Peyton: (nods) Yeah. (Lucas gets up handing Peyton the baby.)
Lucas: Support her head. (Peyton sits and Nathan and Haley enter.)
Haley: Let's see her, ooo.
Nathan: Ok, I'm officially scared to death again.
Haley: (to Lucas) I was wondering if you could step out for a minute...Just a minute.
Peyton: Go, I'll watch her.
Lucas: Ok, I'll be right back mom, (to baby) and you (to peyton) and you.
Lucas: I wish we never left that hotel room in honeygrove, 'cause you're perfect, and we're perfect, and that night was perfect.
Peyton: Well saying that just earned you another one.
Lucas: I have to get back to the hospital.
Peyton: Can I come with you?
Lucas: Sure, Just let me hold you for a few more minutes. (Lucas holds Peyton) That's what's gonna fix me.
Mr. Taylor: Let's lose that "Sir". It's Charles or Chuck.
Nathan: Your name is Chuck Taylor, like the shoe?
Haley: Yeah. You should go home. Get some food. Take a shower.
Nathan: Yeah. You do kinda stink.
Haley: There is a tide in the affairs of men, which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune. Omitted, all the voyages of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries. On such a full sea are we now afloat, and we must take the current when it serves, or lose our ventures.
I think what that quote means is that life is short and opportunities are rare. And we have to be vigilant in protecting them and not only the opportunities to succeed but the opportunity to laugh , to see the enchantment and to live. Because life doesn't owe us anything, In fact I think we owe something to the world. [heavy breathing and laughing] And if we can just believe... i have more, but i think I'm having my baby...
Nathan: (to Dan) The day Keith died, you died. You understand me? My son will never know you. Stay away from my family and stay away from me.
(After Deb slaps him)
Lucas: Ah, what are you on drugs again?
Deb: Are you?
Peyton: Hey! What's wrong?
Peyton: Oh come on! We're gonna be graduating soon! We all know graduating plus partying equals Brooke Davis minus her clothes.
