Brooke: What’s your name?
Brooke: Yea, I don’t like that name. Lets call you… Brooke!
[the car runs out of gas]
Brooke: [beeping to signal that there isn’t gas] I hear birds.
Peyton: Unbelievable! Brooke, did you not think to put gas in the car?
Brooke: [to Haley, who she calls Brooke] Answer the question Brooke!
Brooke: “So, you my date tonight, Luke?”
Lucas: “You know, Brooke, you don’t have to act like this.”
Brooke: “I know that. But you’re the first guy to ever say it. You do your thing and, um, try to resist. It’s actually kind of cute.”
Brooke: “Hey cutie! I saw your picture in the paper. Personally, I didn’t think it did you justice.”
Brooke: “No. Far too much clothing.”
Brooke (to Lucas): “People that are meant to be together always find their way in the end.”
Brooke: “Okay, guy in need of a clue. Here’s one. Women send signals, and that was a brush off. Before you dip into your shallow pool of wit, let me paint us a picture and save us both the trouble. Here’s your evening. You are going to slink back off to your buddies, laugh this off, get wasted, go home, and make nice with yourself. But you won’t be thinking of me, because even your fantasy of me isn’t interested in you.”
Brooke: How many moments in life can you point to and say: ‘That’s when it all changed.’
Brooke: So what’s the deal with that one anyway?
Peyton: She’s tutoring Nathan… supposedly.
Brooke: And hanging out with Lucas? And we’re supposed to believe she’s just friends with both of them? Right…
Brooke: Oh My God! Did you just see that?
Peyton: See what?
Brooke: He just gave her the nod!
Peyton: What nod?
Brooke: The “let’s hook up after the game” nod. You wanna know what I think? I think Nathan likes tutor girl, but I think tutor girl likes Lucas, and I know I like Lucas, and I don’t know who the hell you like any more this is all turning into one big love… rectangle plus one… whatever that is!
Brooke: [looks at Haley] What is she doing here?
Peyton: [laughs] You invited her!
Brooke: Lucky thing you finding Lucas like that. If you didn’t come along, who knows what might have happened.
Peyton: Everything turned out okay.
Brooke: No, not really. I don’t know what hurts worse, you and Lucas sneaking around behind my back or you lying about it to my face.
Brooke: No. The next time you want to steal my boyfriend, you might want to turn that thing off.
[Looks to the web cam]
Brooke: I went into his room to check on him and his computer was on. I know you two were together. He meant everything to me, Peyton. And I was ready to try and be his friend if that’s what he needed. And now I don’t really care if I see either one of you again. She walks out.
Brooke: Where the hell are we?
Haley: Miles from normal.
Brooke: I lied.
Brooke: I’m not pregnant.
Lucas: Wha – But I saw the test.
Brooke: I know. And when the doctor called, he said I wasn’t pregnant. He said that can happen.
Lucas: Okay, no-no-no-no no. I-I-I was standing right there when he called.
Brooke: And you had just called me a slut.
Lucas: So you lied to me to punish me? How could you do that?
Brooke: How could you cheat on me with my best friend?
Lucas: Brooke, I never meant to hurt you.
Brooke: That doesn’t really matter, Lucas. ‘Cause in the end it all hurts just the same.
Brooke: So you’re probably looking at this and making fun of my outfit, right? Anyway here’s alll you really need to know about today; if… you’re fat, dumb, sexual and a guy, you’re OK. If you’re a girl, not so much. Please tell me that’s changed in the future. Somebody tell me you’ve got love figured out, because I got news for you; it’s pretty darn messy right now. But I guess it has always been that way. Wanting to be loved, to find somebody that makes your heart ache in a good way… feel understood. So… if you’re robots, or aliens, or something and you’re watching this right now and that feeling no longer exists; well… you missed it… and I feel sorry for you. ‘Cuz as far as I can tell, that’s what it’s all about. And that’s what I know it should be about.
Peyton: Buds over studs.
Brooke: Hoes over bros.
Brooke: Lucas! Do not make me come in there with you! If you stay in there any longer, you’re going to use up all the hot water if you haven’t already!
[she sticks her hand into the shower]
Brooke: Oh, my God! That’s cold water. You’re taking a cold shower! Ew. Well, the next time you have a wet dream, tell Peyton I say hi!
Brooke: Someone once said:It’s the good girls who keep diaries; the bad girls never have the time. Me… I just want to live a life I’m going to remember. Even if I don’t write it down.
Brooke: I can’t breathe!
Brooke: There’s no room with Chris’s ego!
Brooke: George Bernard Shaw once wrote: “There are two tragedies in life. One is to lose your heart’s desire. The other is to gain it.” Clearly, Shaw had his heart broken once or twice.
Brooke: And once you lose yourself, you have two choices. Find the person you used to be, or lose that person completely.
Brooke: I thought I knew you. But I guess it’s easier to see what we want than to look for the truth. You think you know me but you don’t. And that means you don’t know what I can do. You see me as someone popular and has all the answers but that’s not true. I may not always know what I’m doing but I’ll try to make things better. And when I make a mistake, because face it, we all do, I promise I’ll ask for your help. I can’t do this alone, but if you’ll take a chance on me, we can do great things together. I promise if you believe in me, I’ll find the courage to reach for your every dream. John F. Kennedy said, “the courage of life is a magnificent mixture of triumph and tragedy. A man does what he must, in spite of personal consequences, in spite of obstacles and dangers and pressures. And that is the basis of all morality.”
Brooke: I’m not the most eloquent speaker, so I thought I would borrow a few words from Shakespeare. ‘Love is not love which alters when it alteration finds.’ When life gets hard, when things change, true love remains the same. I look at Nathan and Haley and some how I feel safer. I don’t know if I can explain that, but they give me hope. And, I’m afraid say it out loud because maybe if life finds out it’ll try to beat it out of them and that will be a shame. Because, we all can use a little hope sometimes, you know. That feeling that everything’s going to be okay and that there’s going to be someone there to help make sure of that. So, here’s to Nathan and Haley, and here’s to hope, and here’s to a love that will not alter.
Lucas: Look, Brooke, I need you to listen to me. Okay? I understand that you didn’t know about the kiss and I’m sorry for springing it on you, but I meant what I said. It didn’t mean anything.
Brooke: A kiss always means something.
Lucas: Okay, maybe you’re right. But it wasn’t a romantic moment and you would know that if-.
Brooke: If what? I was there? As you so sweetly pointed out to me at the party, the party that I threw for you, I wasn’t there, was I?
Lucas: Is it impossible for you to forgive me? I forgave you.
Brooke: For what?
Lucas: Sleeping with Chris Keller
Brooke: And you know what, Lucas, I loved you for that. You had such grace in that moment that I fell in love with you all over again. I just can’t believe you would use it now as a bargaining chip!
Lucas: No, I’m not. I’m not. I’m not. I, just, need you to trust me and believe me when I tell you my heart is with you. A part of me feels like ever since we got back together, you’ve just been waiting, waiting to push me away.
Brooke: Oh, great. You kiss Peyton, again, and I’m pushing you away. God! Why did I have to make everybody identicle purses as wedding gifts?
Lucas: I love you, Brooke. I don’t know how else to say it.
Brooke: How about how you show it? I am not pushing you away, Lucas, I am holding on for dear life. But I need you to need me back, okay? Why didn’t you tell me about the kiss? And why didn’t you call me while you were away? And why won’t you ever just let me all the way in? We have to go give our speeches now about love.
Lucas: Please don’t be mad, Brooke.
Brooke: I’m not mad, Luke. I’m not mad.
Brooke: “How much for a broken heart and a side of regret?”
Brooke: “You know, sometimes people play hard-to-get because they need to know the other person’s feelings are real.”
Haley: “When did we start letting boys dictate our happiness?”
Brooke: “I was 9.”
Brooke: “Mouth, you didn’t exactly break any speed records driving over here, you know.”
Mouth: “You called me 17 minutes ago and I drive a bicycle, Brooke.”
Brooke: “The truth is, I don’t really like to think about college ’cause that means high school’s over. After graduation everyone will probably go play basketball, or sing, or start record labels. And I’ll have to start all over – alone.”
Brooke: “Once upon a time in a kingdom far, far away a girl and a boy fell in love. And then another girl, supposedly a friend, secretly taped how they fell in love and decided use it against them. So tonight I give you an authentic and very unauthorized reenactment of Nathan and Haley, a fairy tale.”
“Before we end the night I just want to say a few words about Nathan and Haley. I told them once, not too long ago to be happy because someday they’d make us all believe in true love. And, they do. In a few days they’re going to renew that love for all of us to see. But, in a way we see it every day. The only difference is that Haley will look fabulous in her dress by Clothes over Bros; which is kind of odd seeing as how she’s marrying a bro. But, that’s not the point, sorry. One rainy day Nathan Scott proposed to Haley James and the rest is a fairy tale…
Brooke: “I wanted you to fight for me, I wanted you to say there is no one else that you could ever be with, and that you’d rather be alone than without me.”
Lucas: “How was I supposed to know that?”
Brooke: “You just are.”
Brooke (to Peyton): “I want you to understand something, as far as I’m concerned this friendship is over. And, if we never speak again for the rest of our lives, that’ll be fine. I gave you a second chance Peyton and you blew it.”
Brooke (to Peyton): “Now I know how this dress looks on a witch.”
Peyton (to Brooke): “Go Brooke yourself.”
Brooke: “Naked in the backseat? That’s so last year it’s two years ago.”
Brooke: There are 82 letters in here, and they’re all addressed to you. I wrote them all this summer. One a day, but I never sent them ’cause I was afraid.
Brooke: I was afraid of getting my heart broken again, like before. ‘Cause you hurt me so bad, and I was afraid to be vulnerable. And I was afraid of you and the way that you make me feel. And I know that doesn’t matter now after what I did, but I just thought that you should know. This was how I spent my summer, Luke, wanting you… I’m just too scared to admitt it.
Lucas: Brooke! I’m sorry! What you did with Chris… it’s okay.
Brooke: It’s not. It can’t be. It’s too much to forgive!
Lucas: Well, that’s too bad because I forgive you.
Brooke: You can’t!
Lucas: I just did. So you’re gonna just have to deal with it. I’m the guy for you Brooke Davis, and I know I hurt you last time we’re together, but…
Brooke: I love you.
Lucas: I love you too… pretty girl.
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. There are kids inside our school fearing for their lives right now, terrified that someone’s gonna put a gun in their face and pull the trigger and you want to know how I’m feeling? Our pain is not a commodity for you. It’s not a news bite 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 will never leave us, where are you gonna be? At the next tragedy thrusting your microphone in the face of the next fractured person asking them how they fell? 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: Oh my god, I’m internet porn.
Haley: Brooke, what the heck? What about the fashion show?
Brooke: I have the rest of my life for that stuff. Not so much to be seventeen with my friends.
Brooke: I cannot believe that director lady. I hate her. She was wearing white and it is way after Veteran’s Day.
Haley: Labor Day.
Brooke: Whatever, almanac girl.
Peyton: Ellie would have love this.
Brooke: And Rachel will hate this. Win Win.
Brooke: If that’s not the skank calling the whore a slut.
Brooke: I brought you back your house keys. It’s a very nice house — big rooms, no parents. I used to have one of those.
Brooke: [to Principal Turner] 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’ve been forced to grow up. I stopped letting boys define me and I started believing in myself and in my potential and I ran for student council president and I designed a clothing line and somewhere along the way the lost, little, party girl became the girl on the wall of honor. And I know what I did was wrong, I know, but the girl I was when I came to this school? I’m not sure she would have. And isn’t that the point of high school? Isn’t that what you guys have been trying to teach us for the last four years?
Brooke: I love you, Lucas, and I probably always will… but we go days without having a meaningful conversation… and I used to miss you so much when that happened… but it never seemed like you missed me. And I guess because of it I stopped missing you. I mean look at today…
Lucas: [Thinking] I guess I should’ve said something… anything… I mean, for a guy who wants to be a writer, it suddenly seemed like no words had ever been written. But when someone tells you that they somehow stopped missing you, you’re pretty much screwed, no matter what you say.
Rachel: [eyes closed] Slut
Rachel: Whore. Well, I know I’m not in Heaven cause they wouldn’t have let Brooke Davis’s kinky ass through the gates.
Brooke: And your ass wouldn’t fit, at least not the old one. How are you?
Lucas: You told me to fight for you, and I did. You never fought for me.
Brooke: And I’m not going to.
Lucas: Okay… I guess I was wrong… I’m not the guy for you Brooke Davis.
Rachel: Well, it could’ve been worse, you could have got your ass kicked by a pregnant girl half your size.
Brooke: The day’s still young.
Brooke: Why do you even care anymore?
Peyton: Why do I care? Brooke this has been one of the worse years of my life. And I needed my best friend more than ever. And you cut me out cause I was honest with you, and you were never honest with me.
Brooke: Brooke Davis
Greeter: I have instructions to not let you in…
Brooke: What! Who’s dumb party is this?
Rachel: It’s mine bitch, and your fat ass isn’t invited!
Brooke: [reads from Lucas’s book] She was fiercely independant. Brooke Davis. Brilliant, and beautiful, and brave. In 2 years she had grown more than anyone I had ever known. Brooke Davis is going to change the world someday. And I’m not sure she even knows it.
Lucas: Your gonna do great, Brooke. The world doesn’t stand a chance.
Brooke: Thank you…
Rachel: You screwed me over for a guy who won’t screw you.
Brooke: Oh, please, like I couldn’t get Chase after a little…
Rachel: I think you’re forgetting something. See, Chase is into smart-born-again-virgin Brooke, not stupid-slutty-I-cheated-on-the-Calculus-test Brooke.
Rachel: “Thanks for being my friend, you cheating whore.”
Brooke: “Thanks for being my friend, you crazy bitch.”
Haley: [holding a shot] I guess one shot won’t kill us, huh!
[disgustingly, after everyone drinks their shots]
Haley: Maybe it will. Brooke, what was that?
Brooke: I wanted something that would remind everyone of me… so… they mixed their most popular liqueur with their sweetest…
Brooke: The bartender did name it a ‘Brooke Davis’.
Brooke: You know, not many people can handle a ‘Brooke Davis’.
Owen: Well, it’s definitely one of a kind.
Lucas: Brooke, hey, can you do me a favor?
Brooke: Well if it involves drinking and flirting with a hot bartender then yes, I can.
Lucas: Now, you like Peyton and Lindsay, right?
Brooke: What kind of favor is this?
Brooke: It’s my life, I’m taking a stand.
Peyton: I came back for Lucas.
Brooke: I know you’ve had that Lucas stealing face on since I picked you up at the airport.
Peyton: What face?
Brooke: Your only face. Lucas and Peyton are meant to be together.
Peyton: Wait, if I came back for Lucas who did you come for?
Brooke: Duh, for Lucas. Game on bitch.
Brooke: First of all, I’m not destroying anything and second, zero is not a size!
Jamie: “I’m glad you’re my godmother.”
Brooke: “Me too buddy.”
Peyton: Brooke, this place looks great. Think, if I can’t sign any bands soon, maybe I can get a job here?
Brooke: I’m sorry, darling, you’re not nearly bitchy enough to work in one of my stores.
Brooke: Okay, I think that might be the second stupidest thing you’ve done in the last 24 hours. Luke, we’re not in high school anymore. And I love Peyton, and even if you don’t wanna admit it right now, so do you. Okay?
Lucas: I feel lost Brooke. I don’t know what to do without her.
Brooke: Alright. You remember when I started Clothes over Bros? It was right after we broke up and I was trying to mend my broken heart by focusing on my work and you need to do the same right now. You need to go out there and become the best person and the best writer that you can be and then you approach Peyton and if she comes back to you, you know it’s meant to be.
Brooke: “Mmm, I missed you P. Sawyer. We’re home now.”
Victoria: I’ve been calling you all night. Maybe teen marriage is all the rage in Hicksville, North Carolina, but I swear if you marry this boy I’m gonna have annulment papers drawn up so fast…
Brooke: Mom relax, it was just a joke.
Victoria: Oh. Thank God. You have far too much to lose Brooke.
Brooke: And Lucas Scott was the one boy I might have lost it for.
Brooke: I’m not gonna tell you how to be with Lindsey, but most of your life I’ve known you to take the high road.
Peyton: I know, Brooke. I just, I’m so sick of looking at her and her precious ring.
Brooke: Don’t you mean YOUR precious ring?
Peyton: He said ‘I do’, Brooke. The minister asked if he would love and cherish Lindsey forever and he said ‘I do’.
Brooke: Bitch you need to stop! Sorry… OK. Peyton, do you want to know why I came home? Besides to help you. I am 22 years old and I have made more money than I could ever hope to spend and I have never felt more alone in my life. You need to talk to him Peyton. Just talk to him. And if you let the fact that Lucas said ‘I do’ today to Lindsey while he was obviously lying to his own heart be the reason that you sit here and cry, I am gonna smack you across your pretty face. [she hugs Peyton] I want to have a baby.
Peyton: With me?
Brooke: No. I’ve spent four years working these endless hours to fill this void that all the success in the world is never gonna fill and I realized that what I actually want is to have a family.
Brooke Davis: Congratulations!
Peyton Sawyer: It’s kinda sudden right?
Brooke Davis: Are you kidding? The rest of the world’s been waiting on you two idiots since high school.
Brooke: Congratulations, Victoria, now you have a company and no daughter. You got your dream.
Brooke: Hey 99, I thought you were going to protect 23! Why don’t you get over your whole fear of having children while you’re at it?
Luke: It’s set in high school. Doesn’t anyone get that? I mean.
Brooke: Great. So I suppose you’ll be getting some snot from the CW…Well at least they’re hot.
Brooke: First of all, you are fifteen years old. Second, you kidnapped a 5 year old child, you adolescent Nanny Carrie. And third, you are breaking and entering in the place where I work.
Sam: I know there’s nothing I can say other than, ‘I’m sorry.’ I do these stupid things sometimes. I really am sorry though. You were nice to me, but I’m just not worth it.
Brooke: And where do you think you’re going…You’re grounded
Sam: You’re not kicking me out?
Brooke:No and I hope that someday, you stop acting surprised when you hear that.
Brooke: You must be Julian.
Julian: Brooke Davis, I’ve read all about you.
Brooke: Good. Then you know being the third person in a Lucas/Peyton love triangle usually doesn’t end well.
Julian: For who?
Brooke: I think it’s pretty clear in the book if you’re not Lucas or Peyton you should just forget it. And just so you know, they are two of my best friends. So if you mess with them, I will mess with you.
Julian: That sounds like fun.
Xavier: Ooh, what’s the weak little rich girl gonna do now?
Brooke: Weak little rich girl thinks she’ll stay awhile.
Xavier: You ain’t gonna shoot me.
Brooke: Like I said, you don’t know me. I’m not the same girl from the store that night she’s gone. You took my life, and you turned it into a nightmare. And all I have though about is that I hate you. I hate you.
Sam: Brooke. Brooke, please don’t! Please! I need you mom.
Brooke: I hate you. I hate you so much. But you’re not worth any more of my time. And you’re not worth my life. You have a nice night.
Julian: I want you to have this. :[he give her the jacket]
Brooke: And what is this supposed to mean?
Julian: It means we’re going steady.
Brooke: This isn’t a game,julian.
Julian: I know. When I first got here everyone thought I came for a girl… the girl in the book. But I only came here to make a movie. But now it turns out everyone was right. I am here for the girl in the book… the other girl.
Brooke: maybe we should continue this in my bedroom…
Brooke and Julian together: preferably without our clothes.
Brooke: So how’s it feel P.Sawyer? You have a family now. You have this whole other life to look after.
Peyton: It feels just like I dreamed it would.
Brooke: Can I hold her?
Brooke: Hi Sawyer, I’m your Aunt Brooke, and I’m going to spoil you! Yes I am Sawyer Scott!
Peyton: Sawyer Brooke Scott.
Brooke: You told me that someday I’d be ready to let someone in. I think today might be someday.
Julian: If this was a movie, you’d kiss me right now.
Brooke: No, I’d say I love you, and then I’d kiss you….I love you.
Brooke: I’m scared. What if we ruin it?
Julian: What are you talking about?
Brooke: The feeling that I get when I see you after a month. The way my heart aches when I smell your skin. I don’t want it to go away.
Julian: It won’t. We won’t let it.
Brooke: (about Alex) No I’m not okay. Ho-bag got naked in front of Julian!
Brooke: Alex ‘my butt is the size of a cumquat’ Dupree, my model. She’s so manipulative and materialistic and self-serving, and naked and…
Julian: I’m not a guy’s guy. I don’t have homies.
Brooke: I don’t think anyone has had homies since 1989.
Brooke: Girl behind the brown door. Doesn’t have the same ring to it.
Julian: Hey Brooke how are you doing?
Brooke: Yeah I’m just watching a teamster paint my door a fugly shade of brown.
Julian: Oh this must bring back a lot of memories for you.
Brooke: You could say that…in high school this was Lucas’ bedroom.
Brooke: I’m heading out. You okay?
Julian: Yeah. Tired.
Brooke: Well, for what it’s worth, I think you’re doing great.
Julian: Thanks. Coming from you, that…Means everything…….Hey, brooke. I miss you.
Brooke: Coming from you, that means everything, too.
Julian: You remember what you said to me our first night here?
Brooke: “What if we ruin it?”
Julian: Every night I spent away from you,I dreamed about being back here… in this room, in this bed, with you. I dreamed about us, Brooke. And now we’re here. We’re back.And you look even more beautiful than in my dreams. I love you. I never stopped loving you…not for one night, not for one moment.And I never will. Nothing can ruin us, Brooke Davis.
Julian: It’s pretty magical, isn’t it?
Brooke: It’s beautiful. This whole trip has been perfect.
Julian: Well, I had a little help. Last night at the bar Jamie gave me a gold star for luck. Wanna see it?
[Julian places ring in her palm.Brooke stares in shock.]
Julian: “Oh, wait, that’s not it, that’s the engagement ring I got for you. Where’d I put that thing. Hey, everyone says that the next thing I do, the next choice I make is gonna define me, my career, my life, well, the next thing I wanna do is ask you to be my wife, and tell you how much I love you, and how nothing else matters. When I look into your eyes, Brooke, I see the rest of my life, and I see it with you. [gets one knee, places ring on Brooke’s finger,] Marry me, Brooke Davis.
Brooke: Yes, okay, I want to so much.
Brooke: Good morning, fiancé.
Julian: Oh, no. Not again.
Brooke: “not again” what?
Julian: This happens all the time. I sleep with a girl, and then the next morning, It was so amazing, she starts planning the wedding.
Brooke: Be careful, mister. Speaking of, Peyton says hi.
Julian: Oh. Ouch….By the way, we don’t need any of this stuff Because I’ve been planning my dream wedding since I was nine.
Julian: Pink-and-black color scheme, First dance “hopelessly devoted to you,” Peonies for the flowers, And a pineapple orange torte cake.Did I mention I loved “grease 2”?
Brooke: I’m sorry I’m gonna have to disappoint you, princess, But this bride will be wearing A clothes over bros original,
The flowers will be exotic white roses, Our first dance will not be to a song by olivia newton-john, or elton john, Or lil’ jon for that matter. But you might be able to talk me into that orange pineappley cake, If I don’t decide to do red-velvet cupcakes, ’cause that’s what all the cool kids are doing right now.
Julian: Well… I should probably get another job.
Brooke: Here’s the great thing about that. I have a few bucks squirrelled away. I own a clothing line, you know. Clothes over bros. You might have heard of it?
Julian: Oh, you’re that Brooke Davis. Like, the rich Brooke Davis.
Brooke: I am she.
Julian: Oh, I chose wisely.
Brooke: You did indeed. I believe we have plans for the day.
Julian: I’ll see you in the shower.
Haley: Oh, oh, ew, ew, Sorry, you guys. Speaking of that, I’m pregnant, don’t hate me.
Brooke: Congratulations, selfish baby-haver.
Brooke: Everything is gone.
Julian: I’m not.
Brooke: You did everything you could, Hales. Now what can I do for you?
Haley: Nothing. It’s just really nice to have you here. I love you, Brooke Davis.
Brooke: I know. I love you, too.
Haley: I just don’t think we say it enough, and I’m really sorry for that
Haley:You look nice.
Brooke: Thanks. So do you.
Haley:Nathan has his press conference.
Brooke: Yeah, me too. Seems like a lot of things are ending.
Haley: Or beginning…Do you remember when you started all this? I remember the day because we were in our apartment and you were sad about a boy, and I told you… “focus on your talent. Everything else will work itself out”. And it did. Well, now I’m here to tell you the opposite. Don’t focus on your work. Focus on your life. You’re young, you’re beautiful, you’re in love. You have a wedding to plan. You have an amazing man who loves you. Focus on that, on Julian. Everything else will work itself out.
Brooke: Bros over clothes?
Haley: Yeah. Bros over clothes.Come here.
Nathan: Letting go is never easy. As athletes, we have an expiration date,and even if our professional careers are substantial, that expiration date comes pretty early. Sometimes our …our hearts are willing, but our bodies say no. And that happens to be the case with me. Because of this, I’ll be leaving the game of basketball.
Brooke: Obviously, there are things I regret……Things I would like to take back……Things I would change if I could. But we all have to live with the residue of our choices…And the consequence of our actions.
Nathan: I know that some of you may be concerned for me, concerned that I might struggle with the fact that my career has been cut short. As Lou Gehrig said,”today I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the earth.” Finally, I won’t be taking any questions tonight. Instead, there’s a long interview conducted by Mouth McFadden at his website, mcfaddensports.com.
Brooke: I won’t be taking any questions tonight. But I just want to ensure the investors of my company, now my former company, that you will all be paid back in full 100%. Our mistakes shouldn’t cost you a penny, and they won’t. People say, “it’s just business. Don’t take it personally.” Well, I think business is as personal as it gets. Just because the system allows it, it doesn’t make it right.
Nathan: Some people never get to touch their dreams…Never get to know what that feels like…..never find that thing they love or get to do it for a living. So, is it a tragedy to have that taken away from you? No. The tragedy would be to lie awake at night, wondering, “what if?”
Brooke: For those of you who believed in me once,I hope you can believe in me again…
Brooke & Nathan: For now, I say goodbye to this chapter of my life….. And I look forward to what comes next.
Brooke: You know, everything that’s happened…Maybe it’s okay in a way. I learned the important people, the important things, they don’t go away. You’re still here.
Julian : And I’m never gonna leave.
Jamie : I knew how to spell entrepreneur. I said “ue” instead of “eu”. But I knew it was “eu”.
Brooke: Did you get nervous?
Jamie : No, I missed it on purpose.
Jamie : Because I wanted Madison to win the spelling bee.
Brooke: Why?…I like Madison.I think she’s pretty cool.
Brooke: You know,she asked about you.She asked me if you were okay.
Jamie :What’d she say?
Brooke: It’s not what she said,exactly. It’s more how she said it. Trust me.Girls know these things… So what’s the first thing you’re gonna do when you get out of here?
Jamie :Tell my mom and dad I love them.What are you gonna do?
Brooke: Tell Julian I love him.And I love you, buddy.
Julian : I can do it.
Brooke: Help him.
Julian :I can do it.
Brooke: Julian, he’s just a boy.
Julian :I can get you out, Brooke!
Brooke: Julian, save him,and then save me.Please?He’s just a boy. And he loves you, and so do I.
Julian :I won’t leave you here.
Brooke: I know. Now go.
Brooke: Baby Sawyer’s sick.
Haley: Peyton’s not coming? I’m so sorry, Brooke.
Brooke: I understand…but I miss her.
Haley: Are you okay?
Brooke: Yeah. What you did in here? It’s amazing, Haley. Nobody has ever done anything like this for me before. It’s funny, Peyton used to say people always leave. But when they did, I was always the one who was here for her. This year has been the hardest of my life, and you know who was always here for me no matter what? My maid of honor.
Brooke: Say you’ll do it.
Haley: I would be honored, Brooke!
Brooke: Thank you.
Brooke: Julian, before I met you my world revolved around one thing… me. And I liked it that way on my own, but then I met you and you saw through the facade. You saw me. You’ve taught me to trust, how to let someone in, and what it truly means to fall in love. I can’t possibly describe how much I love you, so I’ll tell you why I love you. You see the world in a way that no one else does and you appreciate everything, including me. There’s no one in the world like you, and if you say “yes” in a few minutes, I’ll get to spend the rest of my life trying to see the world through your eyes, appreciating everything, including you… the most unique, wonderful, and terribly handsome man I have ever met.
Brooke: What a perfect day.Do you think I’ll be a good mom?
Julian: You’ll be an amazing mom.I’ll be grouchy and old.
Brooke: You’ll be wonderful.We’re gonna adopt a baby.
Haley: I can’t believe they’re gonna tear down the Rivercourt. It’s gonna be so weird not to have it here. It’s sad. It reminds me that we’re not who we used to be anymore.
Brooke: I got an offer to go to New York.
Brooke: A job offer to move to New York and design.
Haley: For who?
Brooke: Clothes Over Bros.
Haley: Is that something that you’d consider?
Brooke: Victoria thinks I should…Maybe it’s good that the Rivercourt will be gone. When we see it, it just reminds us of what’s gone, who we thought we would be someday.
Brooke: Hey, handsome.
Brooke: I turned down the job.
Julian:In New York? Why?
Brooke: When I was living there and running Clothes Over Bros, my office looked out on this building nearby, and on the rooftop was a playground where all the grade-school kids would have recess. And some days when things were crazy…which was most days..I’d look out, and I’d watch those kids run around, and I’d think, “that’s no way to play.” I mean, I love New York, but living in constant fear of losing the kickball over the roof of your playground is kind of a rough way to grow up.
Julian: So you turned down the job because the schools have playgrounds on the roof?
Brooke: I turned down the job because I don’t want our child to have a playground on the roof. Unless it’s the roof of my store here in Tree Hill.
Julian: Okay, you’re loosing me.
Brooke: Chase had to take a drug test, but a guy in Kid Cudi’s posse made him take a hit of a joint, so he asked Alex to pee in a cup for him because she’s sober. Except Alex isn’t really sober because she accidentally ate some of Quinn’s pot brownies, so Alex came over to ask you, because her and Chase are getting closer, and she wanted to be the one to help him, but you weren’t home, so Alex asked me. And the lab called Chase and said that he’s pregnant.
Brooke: So Chase told Alex, and Alex told me, and I took a pregnancy test. We’re pregnant.
Julian: Baby! I knew you could do it.
Haley: No peeking.All right, you ready? Okay.
Brooke: It’s just like…Karen’s Café.
Haley: Karen’s Café was always so special to us. Karen made sure of that, and — and you, too, and I just thought, maybe after you move, I’ll re-open it and call it Karen’s Café. And maybe Jamie and Lydia will feel the same way that we did..safe, you know? What do you think?
Brooke: I think that sounds perfect. But it looks like I might be sticking around,so how would you like a partner?
Haley: Of course.I would love that,but what happened? I thought…why aren’t you moving to New York?
Brooke: Because I’m pregnant.
Haley: Are you serious?
Haley: Oh my God!
Brooke: They like it when I drive. So I drive. It’s funny. I grew up in Tree Hill. I’ve spent most of my life here, but it wasn’t until my sons were born and couldn’t sleep, that I really got to know this place. That used to be view of Tree Hill at 2am. Well, my partial view. Now this is my view. We drive the same streets I drove in High School and listen to the same music…at least, when we can agree. Sometimes we try the ’80s, sometimes classic rock. 2:00 a.M., 3:00 a.M., 4:00. We drive and we think …and we fuss a bit. Sometimes we eat. Well, I eat. I guess some people might let it wear on them, the lack of sleep. But I don’t mind it, really I like Tree Hill like this. I like my car like this. Warm… Safe… Loved. It’s what I wished for. Mostly. Sometimes my heart aches at how my life turned out, in a good way. It doesn’t mean there haven’t been hardships, there have been. But I’m here, and here is good.
Julian: Are the boys okay?
Victoria: Of course they’re okay. I’ve done this before ya know?
Julian: I think it works even better if An Unkindness of Ravens is serialized. You know, make it a TV show instead of a movie.
Brooke: [acting like a network executive] Isn’t that a lot like The Creek?
Julian: To some degree, sure, but it’ll have its own voice, find its own audience. Besides, all you people do is remake everything now anyway.
Brooke: What about vampires? We were hoping for more of them in the pilot. We like vampires. And werewolves. We like werewolves.
Julian: There’s not gonna be any vampires or werewolves in this show… I might consider zombies.
Brooke: My parents don’t see me. And when they do see me, it’s only because they’re angry about something. My dad golfs and my mom shops and I can’t remember the last time we laughed together. Or just sat quietly together. I’d like to just sit with them. Be a family. Hear them say they love me. I see my friends and they seem to have real families. And maybe everything isn’t as nice as I imagine but I feel like they have more love around them than I do. And that’s more disappointing than I have words for. There’s this thing called the Burning Boat Festival coming up. We do it every year and this year I can tell my mom wants to throw in my dad and my dad wants to throw in my mom. And me, I’d be happy to chuck the whole thing in.
Brooke: I wished for this. Right here without even knowing it. I wished for you and our family and this. Ever since New York I wanted to come home. I just knew in my heart that there was treasure here, and I found it. In our sons. In my parents. In you. This house always wanted to be a home and now it will be. Our home. Everyone should have that, a place that makes them happy.
Julian: You somewhere down memory lane?
Julian: Good. Stay there and tell me what I should remember about this place. What made it so special?
Brooke: Oh I don’t know. What makes any high school special? This is where it all happened for the first time. The heartache and the happiness. All of it. Being in this hallway, feels like it was yesterday…I wake up sometimes and I miss it. But this is good. It’s all still right here.
Julian: Let’s get a juice box.
Nathan: It’s the oldest story in the world. One day you’re 17 and planning for someday. And then quietly and without you ever really noticing, someday is today. And then someday is yesterday. And this is your life.
Haley: We spend so much time wanting, pursuing, wishing. But ambition is good. Chasing things with integrity is good. Dreaming…
Brooke: If you had a friend you knew you’d never see again, what would you say? If you could do one last thing for someone you love, what would it be? Say it, do it, don’t wait. Nothing lasts forever.
Mouth: Make a wish and place it in your heart. Anything you want. Everything you want.
Millie: Do you have it? Good. Now believe it can come true.
Quinn: You never know where the next miracle’s gonna come from.
Clay: The next memory. The next smile. The next wish come true.
Chase: But if you believe that it’s right around the corner.
Chris: And you open your heart and mind to the possibility of it. To the certainty of it.
Skills: You might just get the thing you’re wishing for.
Julian: The world is full of magic. You just have to believe in it.
Brooke: So make your wish … Do you have it?
Nathan: Good. Now believe in it.
Haley: With all your heart.
