They may be a bit on the cheesy side, but One Tree Hill quotes can be seen as metaphors for life, love, coming of age ... oh who are we kidding. That's giving the CW staple too much credit, but we admit we love it just the same.
TV Fanatic is in the process of transcribing the very best lines from One Tree Hill, from its inception in 2003 to the present day. Memorable quotes like ...
Brooke: As far as I'm concerned, this friendship is over. 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. | permalink
Nathan: I just got that feeling. The stillness I used to feel before dawn. The feeling that the world could be perfect.
Haley: Yea, I feel it too. (puts the cracker jack bracelet on his wrist) Don't say I never gave you anything. | permalink
Peyton: Fine. So, this is how it ends. A ten year friendship that survived two dead moms, three absentee parents, shoplifting, jail time and we can't survive one boy.
Brooke: Not one boy. My boy! | permalink
Peyton (to Jake): Every song ends, but is that any reason not to enjoy the music? | permalink
Haley: It is not possible to be this in love ... | permalink
Lucas: Do you think there's a heaven Skills?
Skills: Do I think there's a heaven?
Lucas: Ya, you know pearly gates, angels..
Skills: I dunno about all that, maybe some chrome gates and some freaky angels. Naw, but I do think there's somethin' else out there, and I do think whatever we do in this world matters in the next. | permalink
Whitey: I know you want some answers, but what is the right answer? Because there is no answer, it's just life. | permalink
Peyton: So The Davis loves Lucas huh?
Brooke: I really really do love that big piece of sexy. | permalink
Peyton: At this moment there are 6,470,818,671 people in the world. Some are running scared. Some are coming home. Some tell lies to make it through the day. Others are just now facing the truth. Some are evil, at war with good. Some are good, struggling with evil. Six billion people in the world. Six billion souls. And sometimes, all you need is one. | permalink
Haley: Nathan, there wasn't a moment that my heart wasn't in Tree Hill.
Nathan: Unlike you I'm leaving and taking my heart with me. | permalink
