  • Felix.

    Season two story lines are officially under way in You Can't Always Get What You Want.

    Everyone meets Felix - the cheeky and arrogant new guy. What do I think of him? He seems quite fun and while I remember finding him annoying the first time I watched these episodes, he had something about him in this episode. I liked the banter between him and Brooke and the way he saved her from getting in trouble for shoplifting did endear him somewhat. Loved how Brooke swan in his pool like he did at the start. They have good chemistry right now.

    Lucas spending time with Dan is pretty suspect. It's obvious that Dan just hasn't turned into a nice guy. I'm glad Lucas isn't completely falling for his act. But he definitely is a little bit. I really wish Dan and Deb would just divorce - let's not have them getting back together please. Haley and Nathan's money issues were entertaining for the hour and it felt quite real. At least Keith is helping them and Haley gets to keep her keyboard. Nathan is sweet!

    Peyton's idea for the club is cool and I like how she's getting a new story line. But the random guy with cocaine was odd. Would that really happen? I did think Karen deciding to help Peyton and open an all ages night is a good idea because I like these two's scenes a lot. Speaking of Karen, she went to college in this episode and her professor, Andy, seems like a great addition to the cast. He's funny and quite charming. A good match for Karen I think.

    Some good story lines here!

  • Felix!!!

    Felix!!!! That about sums up this episode!!! A new guys comes into town. He is Brooke's new next door neighbor and quickly gets on her nerves and everyone else. Including mine. I hate Felix!! He comes into the school like he owns the place. He flirts with Haley and treats Nathan and Lucas like crap. He is also using Mouth.

    Karen goes to school and meets her very young and very attractive professor. She also considers expanding the cafe, but in the end decides to open up a club in Tree Hill so Peyton can have her all ages night that she's been wanting.moreless
  • this was a good ep

    in this ep of the show one tree hill haley and nathan have there first wedding aregument when he buys an expensive gift instead of a car they are really in need of .also lucas is tring to help dan but dan reverts back to his old ways were he is a mean guy and lucas does not like that but then dan makes up for it when they go in one of his dealership cars and they race another driver also peton is tring to get lucas mother karen to open a sorta club for all ages in her shop but thing is she does but it sorta goes in a direction karen does not want when karen finds out drugs may be invoveld this was good epmoreless
  • Stealing,drugs,car races and the new guy. The serious episodes are back and they are better than ever.

    After three episodes of dancing with strippers and partying, I was starting to think One Tree Hill would never bring the serious episodes back again but this episode changed everything. The new boy is in town. Everybody dislikes him except for Mouth. He's the boy version of Brooke or is he ? Brooke's family goes bankrupt so she steals a bra, she's almost caught until the new boy saves her a$$. Brooke isn't the only one to run into the new boy. Lucas and Dan race the stuckup brat but lose when he did his crazy " gonna get hit by a car " stunt. Peyton has a great idea about a club for all ages but she has to prove that she can do it by taking drugs. Karen is enjoying her classes and she is already the teacher's favorite. Nathan and Haley have their first married couple fight. I liked that One Tree Hill has restored the serious storylines and have managed to make things crazy but in a way that will help the storyline and add some maturity to the plot. The addition of two new characters was a good move. I was getting bored of the same old cast. Great episode !moreless
  • Season 2, Episode 4.

    Brooke's new neighbor quickly makes his presence felt among the Tree Hill gang and even comes to Brooke's rescue when she is caught shoplifting.

Lucas' attempt to help Dan with rehab ends in disaster when Dan reverts to his old persona. Meanwhile, Peyton tries to organize an all-ages club and is tempted to try cocaine to seal the deal. LMAO at the scene in the beginning with Brooke and her Spanish neighbor. Felix think he and Brooke have a connection. Haha. "You wanna hit it not babysit it." Haha, good episode.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • When Lucas and Dan are in the middle of their race with Felix, and the camera is on the front of Lucas and Dan's car, a clear shot of the stunt doubles' faces can be seen.

    • When Mouth, Lucas and Felix are talking to each other, Brooke and Peyton approach. Felix then turns around and it shows him turning around twice.

    • Andy writes "greed" on the chalkboard. When he writes it, he writes it in lowercase. In the next shot, "greed" is now capitalized.

    • When Mouth is talking about Felix at the river court, James Lafferty (Nathan) can be seen standing off to the side, waiting for his cue to join the scene.

  • QUOTES (32)

    • Andy: I'll give you a thousand dollars for a decent cup of coffee.

    • Deb: He didn't wanna see me.
      Dan: He didn't wanna see either of us. Remember when he was little? I used to take him to work with me on Saturdays. He'd have to get up early, but he didn't mind. He wanted to hang out with his dad. Now I'm thinking it was all a lie. What if I spent my life chasing the wrong things, Deb? Success, money, respect... What if it turns out none of it matters because I lost my family along the way? Can I get it back? Is it too late?

    • Nathan: If I'd known you couldn't play any better than that, I wouldn't have brought it home. I want to apologize. All right? That was your money too.
      Haley: Oh, it's not that Nathan. I totally overreacted. Partly because I love this gift, and I love you for getting it for me. But partly because we just can't be as careless as we used to be. Not if we wanna make this marriage work.
      Nathan: I know, you're right and I don't know the first thing about managing money, it was just always around.
      Haley: Yeah, well, at least you don't have that problem anymore.

    • Dan: Hey, I had a heart attack. I could've died.
      Nathan: Dad, we both know that's never gonna happen. You can't jerk anybody's chains if you die.

    • Lucas: I gotta admit it's a great car.
      Dan: You want it?
      Lucas: You can't buy me.
      Dan: Come on Lucas, it's not like that. This is what I do for people I care about.
      Lucas: What, you care about me now? You don't even know me!
      Dan: I want to. More than you know. We both know I owe it to you.
      Lucas: You almost had me, you know that? Shame on me, right? I mean I actually enjoyed a day with you. Till now.

    • Store Clerk: Excuse me! I need to check your bag.
      Brooke: OK. Sure.
      Store Clerk: What's this?!
      Felix: It's a birthday present for me. She's shy about buying stuff like this. But hey, I guess that's part of the turn on, right? I would have come in to check it out, sweetie.
      Brooke: I was just gonna take it outside to show him.
      Felix: Blue's perfect. That's your color. We'll take it.

    • Peyton: Brooke, its just money, you know. There is so much more to you than that.
      Brooke: Yeah, but that's my favorite part.

    • Andy: So what about you? You ever thought about growing your business?
      Karen: Oh sure. I even drew up expansion plans but it was never the right time.
      Andy: Never is, you know. Just gotta figure it out as you go along. But if you ask me, the object of the game is to make a difference.

    • Haley: You know, speaking of guys, can we just do five minutes on this Felix person?
      Peyton: Yes! He is hot and totally vibing on you, married girl. No wonder Nathan's jealous.
      Haley: It's kinda weird. I've never had anything like that happen before.
      Brooke: Okay, but guys, how can he make Nathan jealous? This boy is repellent! I mean he's been here what, five seconds, and he's already butting in everybody else's business, bossing people around and acting like he owns the place! Come on... What!?
      Peyton: Earth to Brooke: He's you, in pants.
      Brooke: He is not!
      Haley: Kinda is.
      Brooke: Argh! I hate you both!

    • Nathan: Haley, we can get a car anytime.
      Haley: With what? Magic beans?

    • Dan: I want you to fire Nathan. Name over the front door still says Dan Scott Motors.
      Keith: As long as I'm running things, I'm gonna make hiring decisions as I see fit. You know, word is you actually got a heart in your chest Dan, why don't you try thinking of Nathan.
      Dan: You know Keith, if Nathan can support a wife, he'll never realize what a colossal mistake this marriage is.
      Keith: He's emancipated Dan! That's his mistake to make and if you want him fired, then you're gonna have to look him in the eye and do it yourself when you come back to work. Until then, he stays.

    • Mouth: His family, they move like almost every year.
      Fergie: Witness protection?
      Mouth: Uh uh, doctors without borders. They've been all over the world. His parents are opening up a private practice over here.
      Nathan: Who we talking about?
      Mouth: Felix, the new guy.
      Lucas: You met him?
      Nathan: Sort of, he was hitting on Haley. I thought you weren't supposed to be playing.
      Lucas: Hey look, a little pick-up every now and then aint gonna kill me. Wanna run?
      Nathan: I was on my way home. Got a tonne of studying to do and I gotta work tomorrow. One shot. Yes!
      Lucas: How's work anyway huh? Boss not riding you too hard?
      Nathan: No man, Keith's cool, a lot cooler than my dad ever was. It's kind of weird how my closest contact with him now is a cardboard cut out.
      Lucas: Oh yeah, listen, I may have screwed things up for you, with Dan. He asked about you and I kinda mentioned the dealership gig.
      Nathan: But you talked to him?
      Lucas: Yeah. Look, your mom's having trouble getting him to rehab. So I figured maybe I'd give it a shot. If that's cool with you.
      Nathan: Honestly, after everything you know about the guy are you sure you wanna let him in?
      Lucas: (pause) You know, when Dan had his heart attack, I figured, well that's it. You know, we're never gonna know each other. But he didn't die. So it kinda makes me wonder if I don't take a chance now, will I regret it someday?
      Nathan: You do what you need to do man. You should know who he is.

    • Mouth: Peyton, Haley. This is Felix.
      Peyton: Hi.
      Felix: How you doing?
      Haley: Hi, nice to meet you.
      Felix: Girl, you are totally fine.
      Haley: Dude, I'm totally married.
      Felix: Who's the father?
      Nathan: Little close aren't you?
      Felix: Oh, guess it's you.
      Mouth: She's not pregnant but they are married.
      Felix: Yeah yeah, I saw the ring. Guess she likes poor guys.
      Peyton: This should be interesting.

    • Mouth: Hey Brooke. Who's your friend?
      Brooke: He's no friend of mine.
      Felix: Girl I love it when you're sassy! Haha. Oh how you doing man? I'm Felix, the new guy.
      Mouth: I'm Mouth, the been here forever guy.
      Felix: Right, so tell me something man, how's the talent around here?
      Mouth: Sports?
      Felix: Keeps up with me Mouth, women. The girls. How's the stock? Are they all like your friend Brooke?
      Mouth: Oh um, I don't really
      Felix: Oh you don't know. That's OK. I need someone to show me around. You up for that?
      Mouth: Sure, guess so.
      Felix: Great. Look here's the thing, we gonna act strong now. We're not gonna hurt anyone but we're gonna break a few hearts, it happens. They live, you learn. Occupational hazard. Alright, who do you like that's available?
      Mouth: Who do I like?
      Felix: For me Mouth. OK? Don't be selfish.
      Mouth: How bout her?
      Felix: Nah, too young. You wanna hit it, not baby-sit it. Look, onto of that, I'm the new guy. I mean my game is strong anyway, but new guy status is hardcore.

    • Brooke: Pool boy! Wait up!
      Felix: Running and gunning baby. You gotta keep up with me.
      Brooke: You speak English!
      Felix: Figured we wouldn't get very far if you kept trying to speak Spanish.
      Brooke: Who the hell are you anyway? Hey! Buddy these are two hundred dollar shoes don't make me speed walk!
      Felix: I'm your new neighbour which makes you, the girl next door. And in the movie, she was a porn star.
      Brooke: Ha, well I don't believe you coz if you were my neighbour, you'd know that house has its own pool.
      Felix: I like yours better. Look, this thing between us, it's inevitable.
      Brooke: What thing? There is no thing.
      Felix: Come on! We fight, we flirt. Maybe even slap me but eventually, we end up in the sack together so how bout we skip the anger and cut right to the sex?
      Brooke: How bout we cut right to the slap?
      Felix: OK. It's part of the sex.

    • Andy: So, Business 101 huh? You a business major?
      Karen: I'm not sure yet. It's uh, my first college class.
      Andy: Are you taking it with Hargrove? This guy's tough.
      Karen: Really? How tough?
      Andy: I heard he shot a guy, just to watch him die.
      Karen: You're kidding?
      Andy: Yes. Well about him shooting someone. Not about him being tough though. Good luck. Morning folks. My name is Andy Hargrove, welcome to my class.

    • Lucas: You think you can make it to the corner?
      Dan: Of course. You been shooting around at all?
      Lucas: Some. You know, this isn't a race. You know, we can slow down if you want.
      Dan: Easy for you to say.
      Lucas: What is that supposed to mean?
      Dan: Nothin. It's just, it's hard to be less than what you once were. You might not understand that.
      Lucas: Yeah, I do. You know, I'm not sure I'll ever play basketball the same level ever again. Think about it every day.
      Dan: Nathan doing OK?
      Lucas: You really wanna know?
      Dan: Yeah, I do. After all that's happened, he's still my son.
      Lucas: He's good, you know. He and Haley are happy. He really likes it at the dealership.
      Dan: My dealership?
      Lucas: Yeah, uh, Keith took him on. I thought you knew.
      Dan: We're done here.
      Lucas: Hey come on. It's not that far to the corner.
      Dan: I said I'm done. My health, my call.
      Lucas: OK. Well let me at least take you back to the house.
      Dan: Lucas, go to school.

    • Dan: Lucas.
      Lucas: Um door was open.
      Dan: Wanna have a seat?
      Lucas: Actually, I was wondering if you wanted to go out.
      Dan: Um not thanks. I'm not really up for it today.
      Lucas: Listen, you said you wanted to rehab together, here I am.
      Dan: Well maybe later.
      Lucas: Today only. Take it or leave it.

    • Karen: I'm gonna be late for school. First day.
      Deb: You're gonna do great.
      Karen: You sure you're gonna be OK here? I mean if Dan needs you, I can get Lucas in after school.
      Deb: Oh no, it's fine. I don't think I'm what Dan needs anyway.
      Karen: What do you mean?
      Deb: Oh he's withdrawn, he's depressed.
      Karen: Well the doctor did say mood swings were pretty common after a heart attack right?
      Deb: Oh well, it's more than that. He just, he sits around watching TV. He won't do his rehab. I can't reach him. And, without Nathan around, I don't know who can.

    • Keith: You know, Nathan, you're not gonna be detailing cars forever. I'm gonna find you something, you know, better.
      Nathan: No, you know, it's cool. Whatever I have to do. I mean just treat me like any other employee who has no skills and whose last name isn't Scott.
      Keith: OK, I will.
      Nathan: Oh yeah, Keith? Uh I have a favour to ask.
      Keith: Oh see now you are like any other employee.
      Nathan: Well me and Haley have been saving up for a used car and uh well she found one she likes but I don't know anything about cars. So I was wondering if you could, check one out for me tomorrow?
      Keith: I'd be happy to. Long as you don't spread that I don't know anything about cars around the dealership. Look I know this isn't exactly glamorous but you're doing a good job. I'm glad you're here. It's nice to be around family.

    • Karen: Hey Peyton.
      Peyton: Hey.
      Karen: You looking for Lucas?
      Peyton: Um actually I was looking for you. I just wanted to say I'm sorry things didn't work out between you and my dad. I was really enjoying getting to know you.
      Karen: Yeah I liked that too.
      Peyton: So I was hoping maybe we could keep in touch. Unless that's weird.
      Karen: No. That wouldn't be weird at all.
      Peyton: OK. Great. Can I ask you for some advice? You're just the only woman I know that runs a business and I've got this crazy idea.
      Karen: Well I like crazy ideas. What is it?
      Peyton: OK. It is impossible to see good live music in this town without a fake ID so I went to THUD and I suggested they sponsor an all ages night. You know, not like here at the café but like a club night.
      Karen: That sounds great.
      Peyton: Yeah, I thought so too but no takers so far. The club managers find out I'm in high school and it kinda ends there.
      Karen: It only takes one person to say yes Peyton. If you believe in it, see it through. Eventually someone else will see it too.

    • Deb: Dan? Are you OK?
      Dan: Yeah. I'm gonna order some lawn gnomes. Front yard looks a little bare.
      Deb: It's a nice day. You wanna try a walk?
      Dan: Maybe later.

    • Nathan: Are you writing a song or are you planning on killing me?
      Haley: Uh, officially I'm writing a new song, unofficially; I'd watch your back. By the way, I found a new car on the internet. It's great.
      Nathan: Hm, define great.
      Haley: Five hundred bucks great, which is actually thirty six bucks less than we've got in the wish dish so we could probably spring for a full tank of gas.
      Nathan: Well you know, my wish was more along the lines of TeeVO, surround sound.
      Haley: Well a car will get you off the bus before Keith fires you for being late. Will you just take a look at it? If it's a piece of junk we'll keep looking.
      Nathan: OK.
      Haley: Deal?
      Nathan: Deal.
      Haley: And um make sure the trunk's big enough to fit your body. Just in case.

    • Brooke: (After getting out of Felix's pool naked) You're right. My pool is better.

    • Brooke: Haley, boys are clueless. I'm 30 years away from giving them up for good.

    • Brooke: Here's the deal, I ditched Spanish class the day they covered the naked verbs.

    • Felix: (To Lucas) Don't hate the player, hate the game.

    • Felix: Some town you got here. I mean, all the relationships are inbred, one of the hottest girls gets married, if that's even legal, and the rich girl shoplifts for kicks.

    • Brooke: You know how I told you my credit card got declined because the bill got paid late? (Peyton nods) That's a load of crap.
      Peyton: Well what happened?
      Brooke: We're broke. My dad's company went under and... we're doing this stupid bankruptcy thing and my mom's telling me we might have to sell the house.
      Peyton: God, Brooke, I'm so sorry.
      Brooke: Yeah me too. I love being rich. I'm good at it.
      Peyton: So is that why Felix is getting under your skin 'cause he's the rich guy next door?
      Brooke: I don't know... maybe.
      Peyton: Brooke, it's just money, you know. There's so much more to you than that.
      Brooke: Yeah, but that's my favorite part.

    • Brooke: Okay, look guys, how could he make Nathan jealous? This boy is repellent. I'm mean, he's been here, what, 5 seconds and he's already butting into everyone's business, bossing people around and acting like he owns the place! Come on! (Peyton and Haley laugh)
      Brooke: What?
      Peyton: Earth to Brooke, he's you in pants.

    • Brooke: Hey buddy, that's my spot! What are you doing here, you're the pool boy!
      Felix: You NO PARK HERE.(laughs)
      Lucas: You know this guy?
      Brooke: No! I've just seen him naked!
      (The naked guy swimming in Brooke's pool steals her parking spot at school and Brooke realizes he speaks English.)

    • Dan: How's your wife?
      Nathan: Happier than yours.
