"You know that romantic notion that all the garbage and the pain is really healing and beautiful and sort of poetic? It's not. It's just garbage and it's pain. You know what's better? Love. The day that you start thinking that love is overrated is the day that you're wrong. The only thing wrong with love and faith and belief is not having it." - Haley James Scott
With five and a half seasons of moving One Tree Hill quotes like this, you can see how the CW series has attracted a devoted following - one that's not going anywhere, either.
Continuing our documentation of the most memorable quotes from One Tree Hill from 2003-present, we present you this afternoon with some highlights from Season Five ...
Dan: So that's it... you're just going to make that decision?
Nathan: You made the decision for me when you pulled that trigger. | permalink
Lucas: Most of the time, love doesn't really need words. | permalink
Haley: Are you really in love with Lucas or the idea of Lucas?
Peyton: If I'm being honest, maybe a little bit of both. I think I miss what I thought we would be. | permalink
Haley: Hey. I was thinking um... not sleeping in this bed, might not be too bad tonight if you wanted to try it with me... Got anymore of that sexy talk?
Nathan: The kind stuff or the sexy stuff?
Nathan: You have a serious ass Haley James. | permalink
Brooke: Sorry... Okay. 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. | permalink
Skills: So, what up, P. Sawyer? You got a plan?
Peyton: A plan for what?
Skills: To steal Lucas back. Oh, so I'm the only one thinking like that, huh? Ok, look. Here's the drill. When they say,'does anybody have any reason that this thing shouldn't go down?' Bam! That's you. | permalink
Carrie: I need to get my stuff.
Haley: It's in the garage. Boxes are marked 'whore.' | permalink
Brooke: Rachel, what happened to you?
Rachel: Life, I guess. | permalink
Haley: It's a simple question Nathan. Did you kiss her?
Nathan: No, but she kissed me. | permalink
Lindsey: [singing] My name's Peyton. Fake blonde Peyton. I don't have a boyfriend. 'Cause I'm a bitch! | permalink
[Lucas dials a number from his phone ... Peyton, Brooke and Lindsey all pick up]
Lucas: Hey, it's me. Look, I'm at the airport. I've got two tickets to Las Vegas. Do you wanna get married tonight? | permalink
Peyton: That's what he writes. But what he says is a totally different story.
Haley: Sometimes people write the things that they can't say.
Peyton: Yeah... | permalink
Lucas: I don't hate you. I remember the first time I ever saw you, all skinny arms and tangled mess of hair. It was hard letting you go Peyton. You know? It was hard losing you and it was hard seeing you again and it's still really hard.
Peyton: I know. While I'm asleep, I have this dream where we're back in that hotel room in L.A. and you proposed to me and every single time I say "yes."
Lucas: It's just a dream, right?
Peyton: My dream. | permalink
Nathan: You don't get it, do you? I used to be somebody, Haley, do you understand that? Do you understand what that means? I used to be Nathan Scott, and I was great and I should have walked away okay I know that and I didn't do it, and now I'm nothing. And I have nothing.
Haley: Nothing? You have a beautiful son who is here. I am here! Figure out who you're gonna be, Nathan. Because this version of you does not work for us. I cannot keep living like this, okay? Do you understand what I'm saying? One more night like this, Nathan, and I promise, you will have nothing! | permalink
