In the opening scenes Rachel can be seen outside on the quad with Bevin and a few other girls so how did she end up in the tutor center?
Abby Brown is insulin dependent, but when Haley noticed that she wasn't feeling so well, Abby says she needs her insulin. However, when a person's blood sugar drops to dangerously low level, that person needs sugar to get it back to normal. Taking insulin will further reduce the person's blood sugar level.
Keith put his hand over Jimmy's fresh bullet wound, which would have caused blood to run onto his hand. Wouldn't the investigators find it odd that Keith had Jimmy's blood on his hand if Jimmy shot him first?
When Jimmy fires his first shot... its at shoulder height... but Peyton is hit in the leg right below her knee, because (as it's later said) she was hit with a ricochet.
It seems too unreal that when Keith and Dan receive a text message from Nathan's cell phone, they thought it was legitimate enough to break SWAT team regulations and procedures.
Mouth: Dude, what's happening?!
Nathan: Mouth! What're you doing here?
Mouth: I was in the AV-
Mouth: I was in the AV room and I come out and it's like 'Dawn of the Dead'.
Nathan: Mouth, don't say 'dead'. Someone's got a gun in the school.
Mouth: We gotta get outta here.
Nathan: Yeah, you gotta get outta here. I gotta go get Haley.
Mouth: I'll stay with you.
Nathan: Let's go.
Brooke: Peyton! Peyton! Peyton!!
Whitey: What the hell?!
Brooke: Somebody has a gun inside and they're shooting.
Whitey: My god! Everybody back on the bus!
Brooke: I lost Peyton. I don't know where she is. I mean, she was right there and a shot went off and now she's gone and I...
Lucas: Look, wh-a-hey-hey, Peyton was shot?
Brooke: No, I don't know! She was right behind me; we were by the library!
Nathan: Haley's in the tutor center.
Whitey: All students on the bus! Code red, now!
Whitey: Let's move! Come on.
Whitey: Nathan, get your ass on that bus!
Lucas: I got him, Coach!
Lucas: Look, I'll be right back. Nathan!
Whitey: Boys! Boys!
Nathan: Got off me, man! Haley's inside!
Brooke: Lucas! Lucas!
Whitey: Get on. Gary, ride, go, go!
Reporter: We're a country obsessed with tragedy, Brooke, so if examining tragedy makes me part of the problem, then so be it. But let me ask you something, how much time have you spent with Jimmy Edwards over the last 4 years?
(Brooke goes quiet and looks away.)
Reporter: So maybe I'm not the only one who should be ashamed.
(Brooke starts to cry but stops as someone approaches her.)
Glenda's mom: Brooke? Hi, I'm Glenda's mom, I was wondering if you'd seen her.
Brooke: I'm sorry, I don't know anyone named...
Glenda's mom: Glenda Farrel, She's in your class, she said you two were friends.
Brooke: Glenda! I thought you said Brenda..I'm sorry. Sure, I'll find her.
(Brooke goes outside to cry because she doesn't know who Glenda is.)
Brooke: There are kids inside our school fearing for their lives right now. Terrified that someone is going to put a gun in their face and pull the trigger, and you wanna know how I'm feeling? Our pain is not a commodity for you. It's not a newsbyte to boost your ratings. Because tomorrow, or the next day, or the next week when WE go back to school, changed forever by a day that'll never leave us, where are you gonna be? At the next TRAGEDY? Thrusting your microphone at the next fractured person asking them how they feel? Lady, that is not journalism, YOU are not contributing anything to society. You are buzzards, circling the carnage, but you prey on the living. THAT is how I'm feeling. But something tells me you're not gonna air that.
(Brooke walks away leaving the reporter humiliated.)
(Reporter is watching clip of Jimmy's entry on the time capsule on her laptop. Brooke closes the laptop.)
Brooke: A little insensitive, don't you think?
Reporter: And who might you be?
Brooke: Brooke Davis, student council president.
(Reporter walks to face camera)
Reporter: I'm here with student council president, Brooke Davis. Brooke, Can you put into words how you might be feeling about this tragedy?
Brooke: You should be ashamed of yourself.
(Brooke walks away.)
(Brooke is sitting on the bleachers and observes a student being hugged by her parents)
Reporter: Does that warm your heart? Do you think America would tune in for that every night?
Brooke: Have you seen the ratings for 7th Heaven?
Nathan: and Forever.
Jimmy: What's my name?
Jimmy: My full name.
Abby: I don't know!
Rachel: You're the guy from the time capsule.
Haley: Jimmy Edwards. Jimmy Edwards. You're a good guy, and you are better than this.
Peyton: (crying,hurt and scared) Lucas, I lost Brooke, I'm sorry!
Lucas: She's fine, she's fine. But, ok, you're not. We gotta get you somewhere safe, come on.
Peyton: No, I can't. I can't walk I tried.
Lucas: Ok. (Lucas gets up from kneeling beside her)
Peyton: No, don't leave me please!
Lucas: No, look. I'm gonna go block the entrance. We'll just hide, all right? Listen to me, ok? I'm not leaving you Peyton! I won't, ok? I won't!
Lucas: Nothing will happen to you, I promise!
Peyton: You're always saving me.
Lucas: Somebody's got to.
Rachel: What about the windows? I mean, we could break the windows and get out.
Haley: No, that's...it's...it just goes to the courtyard – it's enclosed. It's for light.
Skills: Yeah, besides, we need to break in all the windows; all we do is draw attention to ourselves.
Jimmy: Everyone here is a loser. And the truth is: everyday I have to come to this school, is one less day I have to come back.
Nathan: Lucas, I have to find Haley.
Lucas: I know.
Jimmy Edwards: What are you doing? What's in your pocket?
Nathan: Ok! Ok! Stop pointing the gun at her alright?
Haley: It's just my cell phone.
Mouth: We gotta get out of here.
Nathan: Yeah, you gotta get outta here. I gotta go get Haley.
Mouth: (looks down at the bat Nathan's carrying) I'll stay with you.
Peyton: It's not glass in my leg, is it?
Lucas: No it's a bullet.
Brooke: I'm sorry I don't know you.
Mouth: When I came out it was like Dawn of the Dead.
Nathan: Don't say dead, Mouth.
Jimmy: You know they're going to remember me as a monster but I wonder how they'll remember you?
Keith: I'm not gonna leave you here son. I'm not gonna do that and i'll tell you why. Cause I've been there. I've bought the gun, and i planned on using it ok. I've been there. And I wanna tell you something, It gets better.
Jimmy: Not this, it can't.
Keith: It does Jimmy. That pain in your stomach, that pain in your heart, it goes away. That voice in your head thats saying there's no way out, it's wrong Jimmy. Would you please, please just believe me. It gets better.
Jimmy: It won't! Not after this! I cant take this back! I can't erase this! (starting to cry) She's gonna die.
Keith: You don't know that.
Jimmy: I just... I wanted... I wanted them to leave me alone. I just.... I wanted them to like me.
Keith: I understand son. It's what we all want. Thats all any of us want.
Jimmy: I'm not here..... I'm not here.
Keith: Jimmy please..... it's gonna be ok son... it's gonna be ok.
Jimmy (pounding on his chest): But it hurts! It hurts! It always hurts!
Keith: I know..... please... please....
Jimmy: I'm sorry......
Rachel: 700 days. High School, out of 20 or 30 thousand, can't you see past that. It's only 700 days.
Brooke: Hey, Glenda. I'm really sorry I don't know you.
Glenda: That's okay, I know you.
Abby Brown: What's wrong with you? He's just a kid. We're all just kids and we just have this life and the things you say and do, we feel that. How can you have so much hate in your heart? How can you act like it doesn't matter? It does matter. What happened to us? We're just kids. We can't be like this. It's not possible.
Peyton: We had a snow day. Sixth grade, do you remember? It was like this whole other world just came in overnight and took ours away. Brooke, she came over and we made a snowfort... with a tunnel. And we stayed in there all day. It seemed so safe, like everything was okay. Like everything our world was about to become, maybe we could just stop it and stay little kids for one more day. But then it got cold, kinda like now. They're gonna come now. All of them. The reporters and the psychologists and the analysts. And the so-called experts. And they're gonna try and make sense of this. But they're not gonna be able to. And even if we do make it out of here, we're always gonna carry it with us. Its never gonna be the same.
Jimmy: You think so. You really think I am the only one. Then ask yourself this. Have you ever treated someone like crap in this school or left anyone out? Have you ever broken up with someone in the time it takes to pass a note and disappear? Or talk trash behind their back? Or maybe you just ignored it all? You know why you worry about the big game or the prom or the bake sale for the pep club. You ask yourself that and then you tell me if there is anyone else out there.
Peyton: Luke... It was your friend. The one from the time capsule. He had the gun. But he didn't look evil... angry. He just looked scared.
Mouth: It's not suppose to be this way. The artists, and the scientists, and the poets - none of them fitted in at 17. We're suppose to get passed it. Adults - they see kids killing kids, and they know it's a tragedy because they used to be those kids - the bullies, and the beaten, and the loners. We're supposed to get passed it. You're supposed to live long enough to take it back. Just take it back.
Jimmy: How bout you, Hero? You scared?
Nathan: Yeah, I'm scared.
Jimmy: Good! Welcome to my world!
Nathan: Haley's in the tutor center!
Peyton: (to Lucas) Luke, if I say 'I love you,' right now, would you hold it against me? Because I've lost alot of blood....come here. (They kiss lightly)
Lucas: Hey, Nate...
Nathan: Yeah, you too.
Lucas: You're gonna stop a bullet with a baseball bat? Hey Nate, Nathan, someone has a gun in here!
Nathan: Lucas, I know that, okay, I know this is stupid. But what if something happens to Haley? What if we walk away and something happens to haley. Are you gonna be able to live with that?
Lucas: Most heroes are dead Nate.
Nathan: It's 'Haley' Lucas.
(Haley and Nathan whispering)
Haley: You shouldn't have come back for me. I love you for doing it but I wish you were safe.
Nathan: I don't want to be safe without you.
Nathan: Guys like me, huh? You can pass judgment on guys like me all you want but someone stereotypes you and there is gunplay?
Lucas: Does this darkness have a name? This cruelty, this hatred, how did it find us? Did it steal into our lives, or did we seek it out and embrace it? What happened to us? That we now send our children into the world like we send young men to war... Hoping for their safe return... But knowing that some will be lost along the way. When did we lose our way? Consumed by the shadows, swallowed whole by the darkness. Does this darkness have a name? Is it your name?
Jimmy Edwards: Open your eyes, open your eyes!
(Haley whispers through the door)
(Nathan whispers back)
Nathan: And forever.
Lucas: She's gonna die!
SWAT Team: We have a hostage situation.
Lucas (to Brooke): Wait, Peyton was shot?
Brooke (to Lucas): I lost Peyton.
Jimmy: Don't push me!
Nathan (screaming): Haley's inside!
