  • New direction for season.

    While What Do You Go Home To? changes the direction of the season quite a bit, it's a almost a relief from a more dramatic half earlier on.

    Haley and Peyton working together is awesome. I really liked their friendship. I loved when Peyton just threw all the others demo's away when she found out about Haley's. The nanny interviewing was also pretty funny with talk of swimming naked etc. And it was nice to see Deb at the end there. Lucas's return was interesting... especially the awkwardness with Peyton. Brooke being so excited about the baby was lovely to watch if not all a bit sudden. And Q was a dick to everyone. Mouth and Millie sure go fast don't they? Moving in already? Dan was just Dan really...

    All in all another enjoyable episode.

  • Nanny Deb

    I loved the opening of what everyone thinks about when they are waking up. Nathan and Haley's was so sweet. And Brooke's was just hilarious.

    Nathan and Haley interviewing nannies was really funny. I'm really glad with the choice they made in the end. Deb has been gone for so long. It was nice having her back. I wonder where she has been though.

    I love that Brooke is going to be taking care of a baby that needs surgery. It's a really great program and I'm glad she is doing it. It's going to be hard for her to let her go after the surgery, but at least now they will see she will be a good mother.

    I love that Peyton is going build a recording studio in the office. I also love that it's called Red Bedroom Records since she used to have a red bedroom.

    I feel bad for Q. He wants to play and wants his scholarship, but it's going to be tough when he has a cast and they aren't winning.

    Mouth and Millie were cute. I like that they are moving in together and that Mouth chose her over a job.moreless
  • I kind of hoped "Hundred" to act as the catalyst to this rather dull season of my favourite TV show but I guess I rooted for much."What Do You Go Home To?" is nothing but a repetation of what we had already experienced.moreless

    Season 5 started out really good, promising and fresh. After couple of episodes, it reduced in vigor but still it was fun to watch. "Hundred" was a special and at the same time a classic OTH episode before the break, kind of assuring not to lose faith in season 5 and promising the break might get the season back on track. Now, for the first time ever, I wonder why I bother to watch this show.

    Couple of things are wrong with the last two episodes. First, barely something happens in Tree Hill anymore. Yes, the first 4-minute openings are great with nicely exchanged words and a good background music but then the vibe is quickly consumed. Lucas is invisible, Peyton is shallow, Haley and Nathan are stuck and Brooke is, well not Brooke anymore. Other cast members come and go with no steady plot parts. Second, there is lack of originality and inspiration in the new episodes. OTH was once known as a show bold enough to experience new things and pulling interesting storylines. Instead, now we have episodes that are played out. After all, there is nothing new about Haley's revisited music career or Peyton's sullen expressions whenever Lucas shows up. It even takes an entire episode to make Milicent move in or to have Brooke welcome the baby. Oh and how can I forget Dan or Chase who appears for an irrelevant moment just to complete the show's 40 minute run cycle. I intentionally ignore to mention the unrealistic contents like ardency for adoption by a 22-year old or full-time mother/teacher/musician position in life that makes work and family conflict theory trippled in its effect.

    I do not know how and why it became such a torture to watch One Tree Hill. I still dig for the forthcoming episodes with a miracle of a change but most of the time I cannot wait for the season to end and the writers to take a break. Clearly, there is something wrong.moreless
  • Season 2?

    I'm not feeling it for One Tree Hill recently. This episode was just very average and nothing much happened. Brooke is getting a baby (boring!), Haley is signing with Peyton's record label (boring!), Nathan is trying basketball again, (boring!), Millicent is moving in with Mouth (boring!), Q gets busted (boring!) and Lucas thinks he's trying to win back Lindsey (awkward!).

    This show is letting me down so much that I don't even plan to write a well thought of review for it. The only good thing with this show is Jamie because he is absolutely entertaining, but other than him, it is just a worn out show.moreless
  • Season 5, Episode 14.

    Nathan and Haley interview nannies. Brooke is given a second chance to prove herself to the adopting agency. Mouth is given a chance to have a permanent sports spot in Omaha, which forces Mouth and Millicent to make a decision about their relationship. Meanwhile, Quentin is making trouble with the Ravens coaches. I liked the beginning of this episode. :) I liked "Ride" playing in the beginning of the episode. Sophia Bush is such a great actress! :) Her reaction to the call from the adoption agency was perfect. Nathan is also a horrible rapper. I liked that Peyton automatically said yes to Haley's demo. Peyton was also looking pretty good in this episode.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (5)

    • Millicent says that she can't go to Omaha because the closest Clothes over Bro's location to Omaha is the one in Tree Hill. But in Episode 5.04 Victoria mentions a store in Houston. Houston is closer to Omaha than Tree Hill.

    • When Nathan and Haley are talking on the couch while Deb plays with Jamie, Haley takes a cup of wine from Nathan with her right hand, but in the next scene she has it in her left hand.

    • This is the first episode that the audience hears Haley call her mother-in-law, Deb, "Mom." Haley had previously referred to her as "Deb" or "Mrs. Scott."

    • Goof: The monkey that Brooke has when Chase enters the room goes into the cot at one point and the next second is back in her hand.

    • Goof: When Nathan and Haley are in bed at the start, the covers that Haley is in keeps changing from a duvet to a throw a few times.

  • QUOTES (26)

    • Chase: You know, Brooke, Owen's my friend and I know he's really into you, but... He's just kind of always been about his independence, too, you know?
      Brooke: I guess I didn't know.
      Chase: He's just a little threatened with all the baby stuff.
      Brooke: Yeah, he said that on the phone. Look, did he send you over here to talk to me? Are we in junior high now?
      Chase: He didn't send me over and he's not coming by either.
      Brooke: Then why did you?
      Chase: Well... I'm taking off. I thought I'd say "goodbye" and "congratulations". And maybe I want to see your face one more time. Probably why Owen's not coming by.
      Brooke: What is that supposed to mean?
      Chase: Well, he probably figures if he looked in those eyes one more time, he'll cave on the whole independence thing. Anyways, call me if you need anything...someone to talk to, new carpets... I don't know, a husband... I'll see you around. (leaving) Hey, Brooke? Don't take the Owen stuff too personally.
      Brooke: I won't.
      Chase: Yeah, you will. I know how you are. It's… It's just a big deal. It's kids. I mean, I know it's just one, but if you really want a family, something that's like forever... "Forever" scares a lot of us.

    • Chase: (about the purple monkey) That kid's a lot hairier than I thought he'd be.

    • Lucas: Hey, Brooke. You okay?
      Brooke: I think I made a big mistake.
      Lucas: I think it's a little late for that, isn't it?
      Brooke: If I wanted a "little late for that", I would have called Peyton. You are supposed to say: "No, you didn't. You're gonna be fine".
      Lucas: No, you didn't. You're gonna be fine.
      Brooke: It doesn't count now.
      Lucas: So, you got a purple monkey, huh? Just like you had.
      Brooke: You remember that?
      Lucas: Of course. I do know some things about you, Brooke Davis. You're gonna be a great mom.
      Brooke: I'm not even gonna be a mom. I just fix her up and then I have to send her back.
      Lucas: Well, if you didn't do it, who would?
      Brooke: Owen thinks I'm being selfish. He thinks I just want what I want.
      Lucas: Well, I'd say it's the opposite.
      Brooke: Right?
      Lucas: I think it's great that you're willing to help little girl get the care that she needs and get to the rest of her life.
      Brooke: So do I. But what if I do something wrong, Luke? What if I hurt her? What if I break her? I mean, I rushed into this and I'm scared.
      Lucas: You know what? When it comes to single moms, I had a pretty special one. And it's good that you're a little scared. But you're gonna do great.
      Brooke: Thanks. Thanks for coming over. You think she'll like the purple money?
      Lucas: I think that she's gonna love the girl who gives it to her.

    • Lucas: I don't blame you, Peyton.
      Peyton: Luke...
      Lucas: all for any of it.
      Peyton: I feel bad for you, I feel bad for Lindsey, and I feel responsible somehow. And I really hope that doesn't come off as arrogant, okay? But I know this hurt you.
      Lucas: She's coming back, Peyton. She loves me. And I love her. It's gonna be okay.
      Peyton: I hope so.

    • Haley: So, I see you know CPR and you're also a lifeguard.
      Nanny: Yes.
      Haley: Have you ever kissed any of the husbands you worked for?

    • Jamie: I guess I just don't understand. Grandpa Dan seems nice. How come everyone's always mad at him?
      Lucas: You love Chester, don't you? (Jamie's nodding) Well, what if grandpa Dan hurt Chester and took him away so you could never see him again?
      Jamie: I guess I would be really mad at him...and sad, too.
      Lucas: Yeah. Well, that's how we feel.

    • Dan: I was in prison for a long time, okay? I was just getting a checkup. But the truth is I was hoping…
      Nathan: No, don't. Dan, don't hope. You hear me? There's no hope for you.

    • Peyton: God, Haley and I thought we had big news.
      Brooke (on the phone): Why? What's your news?
      Haley: We're gonna make an album together.
      Brooke (on the phone): Oh, whatever. I'm getting a baby. I have to go. I'll call you later.

    • Peyton: Mia's album is killing it. And are you ready for this? She has sold...40,000 copies!
      Haley: Wow! That's great! That's really great! She… She's really the kind of girl that deserves it, you know?
      Peyton: I know. Now I just need to find another one.
      Haley: Well, I already did… You. You deserve all the success you're getting and more. And I'm really proud of you.
      Peyton: Thanks, Haley. That really… That means a lot to me coming from you.
      Haley: Actually, that was just to butter you up 'cause I really need to ask you for a favor.
      Peyton: You are a crack-up. What is it? Anything.
      Haley: So, you know how you're looking for the next great artist and you really trust my instincts and everything…
      Peyton: Do you have a demo for me?
      Haley: I do.
      Peyton: Haley, that's awesome. Who is it?
      Haley: Haley James Scott.
      Peyton: Yes.

    • Peyton: I've been waiting for the opportunity to go out and buy the next Haley James record, so, of course, I want to record it.

    • Lucas: See, you're one of the best shooters I've ever seen, Q. When you're healthy. The other ones… Well, they're right here in the gym.
      Jamie: Even me, Uncle Lucas?
      Lucas: Especially you, Jamie.

    • Jamie: There's something missing up on the wall. There used to be another one. What was it?
      Nathan: That was your grandfather's jersey.
      Jamie: Grandpa Dan? Why'd they take it down?
      Nathan: Because of the bad things he did. People decided they didn't want it up there anymore.
      Jamie: You do bad things sometimes, daddy, and yours is still up there.
      Nathan: Not that bad.

    • Lucas: How're they doing?
      Skills: You know. You win some. You lose some.
      Lucas: And how many "some" did you lose?
      (Lucas and Skills look at the score board in the gym)
      Lucas: You lost eight games?
      Skills: Yeah, but we won four.

    • Lucas (to Skills): That desk looks good on you, coach.

    • Dan: (voiceover) It's said that the saddest thing a man will ever face is what might have been... but what if the man who's faced with what was... or what may never be... or what can no longer be... choosing the right path is never easy, it's a decision we make with only our hearts to guide us... but sometimes we find our way to something better... sometimes we fight through the regret and remorse of our mistakes, our malice and our jealousy, and the shame we feel for not being the people we were meant to be... and that's when we find our way to something better... or when something better finds its way to us.

    • Lucas: Lindsey. She's the first thing I think about every day. "How is she? Does she miss me like I miss her? How do I get her back?" And then another day without her begins.
      Peyton: Lucas.
      Jamie: Chester.
      Brooke: Brooke. Oh my God, I've to pee.
      Skills: What day is it? What time is it? What the hell did I drink last night?
      Marvin: Mmm, Millicent...You smell so good. I have to go to work. Sure, I guess I can be a little late. "What do you mean I'm fired? I wasn't even that late!" How am I gonna pay my rent? "Would you like fries with that, sir?"
      Haley: Jamie
      Nathan: Jamie. God, my girl is hot.
      Haley: Morning.
      Nathan: Morning.
      (When they are about to kiss, Jaime's foot pops up)
      Nathan: You know, I'm hungry this morning.
      Haley: I am starving.
      (Shot fired)
      Dan: Keith...

    • Manny: So, Nathan. Haley tells me you like to watch your nannies swim naked in the pool? (looks at Nathan with interest)
      Nathan: (looks at Haley) I guess I deserved that.

    • Brooke: (about the baby) And check it out; I got her a purple monkey like the one I used to have.
      Haley: Oh, that's so cute. Did you get her anything else?
      Brooke: Yeah, I got all this stuff (pointing at all the toys)
      Haley: Well, I mean like, you know; food?
      Peyton: Or I mean, a crib?
      Haley: Or stuff?
      Brooke: (taken off guard) I got a little sidetracked?

    • Brooke: (to Owen on the phone) I thought I was just gonna have one baby in my life, but fine.

    • Brooke: The lady from the agency called this morning and they're sending me a (distracted by a toy) purple monkey.
      Peyton: Wait! You're adopting a purple monkey?

    • Brooke: (panicking) I have to get ready and I can't get this in my bag.
      Millicent: Okay, first of all; you don't need this. What do you need? What can I help you with?
      Brooke: I don't know. I've never had a baby. I don't know what babies need. I just, I have to go and I cannot get this in my bag! (screaming in panic)
      Millicent: Again, you don't need this. Just calm down.
      Brooke: Where are my keys?
      Millicent: They're in your hands.

    • Jamie: Daddy said you were on a ship. Did you see any pirates?
      Lucas: I saw a couple of pirate ships, but they didn't want any part of me.

    • Nathan: (to Haley) The kid's got your brains. I just now figured out you were spelling "nannies".

    • Jamie: Thanks, mama! I L-O-V-E you!
      Haley: I L-O-V-E you too, smartypants

    • Jamie: Urgh, I hate it when you spell.
      Haley: Don't say hate.
      Jamie: Sorry, I just think it's D-U-M.
      Nathan: Wow. Add a B to the end of that or you will be too.

    • Quentin: Ho, ho! There he is! I said it's J. Luke Scott the boy is hot. Wherever he goes, homey, that's the spot.
      Jamie: His name is "Q" he's better than you. If the spot is hot then, he's there, too.
      Nathan: I'm the dad and I'm not so bad. I--
      (Quentin and Jamie look at Nathan with digust)
