  • Quotes

    • Brooke: I enjoy corrupting America's youth. It's one of my habits.

    • Brooke: Mouth, you gotta live a little.
      Mouth: No, it's not that. I mean, a night with you is like flying first class. My life is coach. It's going to be hard going back to it.

    • (Brooke & Mouth are getting lap dances)
      Brooke: Real thing sure beats the internet, huh?
      Mouth: The internet sucks.

    • Haley: Well, did you have fun tonight, slave boy? Thanks for playing along.
      Lucas: Look Haley, I know we've grown apart a bit lately, and I know we have a lot ahead of us, but I just want you to know I'll always be there for you. And if Nathan doesn't see how special you really are, well then he's an idiot, cause I think you're amazing.

    • Haley: Oh, technically you owe me a goodnight kiss.
      Lucas: Rules are rules, I guess.
      Haley: Yeah, I guess so. Here's the thing though, if your tongue comes anywhere near my mouth, I'm just never speaking to you again.

    • Tim: (walking into Deb's house) Hello? Deb? Mrs. Deborah?
      Deb: Come on in, Timmy, I'm in the bath...
      Tim: Ready or not, here I come!

    • Nathan: What happened to us, Peyton? We used to be good together.
      Peyton: No, we weren't. We just had sex a lot.
      Nathan: You sure about that?
      Peyton: Trust me. You're the only guy I've been with. You knew that.
      Nathan: Yeah, I know. I just... I figured since we broke up, maybe...
      Peyton: No.
      Nathan: Yeah, me neither. It's just sex, right?
      Peyton: Ok, you know what, Nathan? Haley really deserves better than that. She really, really likes you and she's good for you... and more than that, she trusts you.
      Nathan: I know that.
      Peyton: And ok, fine, we could do it right here in the pool...
      Nathan: Peyton.
      Peyton: And fine, you were really good in bed, but I would know and you would know... and I wouldn't do that to Haley or myself. Or even you, for that matter. Cause you know what? If you screw things up with your relationship with her, then you're a bigger jackass than even I thought.
      Nathan: I know it would hurt Haley. The only reason I mentioned it was to let you know that I'm not pressuring her.
      Peyton: Right. I knew that.
      Nathan: You said I was good in bed?
      Peyton: No, I didn't.
      Nathan: Oh, yes you did.
      Peyton: Oh, God, kill me.
      (Nathan laughs and Peyton sinks into the water, seeming to be embarrassed)

    • Haley: If I look at this tattoo 20 years from now, and it reminds me of how I feel today, I think I'll be okay with that.

    • (At the boytoy auction, Haley has already won Lucas, and now Nathan is up for bid.)
      Girl 1: Eighty dollars!
      Peyton: Whoa…
      Girl 2: Eighty-five!
      Peyton: Smells like sex in here.
      Girl 3: Ninety!
      Haley: (panicked) Ninety…one!
      Peyton: That's a creepy threesome.

    • (Haley meets up with Peyton and all the cheerleaders)
      Peyton: Hey.
      Haley: See anything you like?
      Peyton: I'm seeing everything I like.
      Haley: Really?
      Peyton: But I think I'm going to bid on Jake.
      Haley: You guys are really hitting it off, huh?
      Peyton: Just friends, really. What about you? Ready to fight off these rabid skanks for Nathan?
      Haley: Actually, I think I'm going to bid on Lucas.
      Peyton: Really?
      Haley: Yeah, I haven't gotten a chance to spend time with him much lately and I get Nathan for free. (Peyton laughs and nudges her)
      Whitey: Alright folks, here we go.
      Haley: Who is up next? (They look at the program) Oh no.
      All the girls: Tim. (Tim comes on stage dancing and taking off his jacket. He swirls it around his head then shakes his butt in front of the girls. Peyton and Haley cover their eyes. Deb and a woman are laughing)
      Whitey: Do I hear $30? (Tim does some really bad dance moves and the girls are laughing at him) How about $20?
      Woman: That boys going to pull something.
      Whitey: Can I get a ten spot?
      Deb: I suppose I have some chores around the house. $8?
      Whitey: Sold! (Tim smiles at her and Peyton and Haley laugh)
      Haley: Oh Jake's up next. How much money do you have?
      Peyton: $87.53

    • Brooke: Here's my philosophy on dating. It's important to have somebody that can make you laugh, somebody you can trust, somebody that, you know, turns you on... And it's really, really important that these three people don't know each other.

    • Haley: I am so excited to have Lucas all to myself for an evening. We have not had a night to just hang out in forever.
      Peyton: Yeah, same goes for me and Nathan.
      Nathan: I know you're still into me, but $112? Hey you.
      Haley: Hey.
      Nathan: How about you come see me around midnight?
      Haley: Sounds good. (They kiss) Don't have fun.
      Nathan: I won't. (Peyton jokingly looks hurt) Alright, come on. Let's get this over with.
      Peyton: Funny. That's what he used say before we used to have sex. (Haley fake laughs and Peyton walks away and jumps on Nathan's back. Haley watches them looking a little hurt)
