at . Comments

With the One Tree Hill series finale just around the corner, it is time to remember some of our favorite moments from the teen drama that bridged the gap between iconic hits like Beverly Hills, 90210 and current winners, such as The Vampire Diaries.

In the three days remaining before Nathan, Brooke, Haley and company say goodbye to America for good, TV Fanatic will be counting down the nine moments from nine seasons of One Tree Hill that will stay will with us for as long as Naley stays together.

Read the first three entries below, and then add your favorite One Tree Hill moments in the comments!

9. Lindsey leaves Lucas at the altar.

It was the 100th episode of One Tree Hill, and the 12th of season five. In “Hundred,” every Leyton and Brucas fan on Earth was on the edge of his or her respective seat as Luke got closer and closer to marrying Lindsey. Luckily for everyone involved, the bride put a stop to the entire thing when she realized Lucas’s true feelings for Peyton. As we know now, Leyton did end up together, got married, had a baby, and so selfishly left us a little more than a year later.

8. Don’t say I never gave you anything.

It might have begun as a way to get to his rival of a half-brother, but Nathan’s courting of Haley turned out to be one of the most steady and genuine aspects of One Tree Hill. In just the third episode ever of the series, Nathan gave Haley a piece of junk bracelet and said the now famous words, “Don’t say I never gave you anything.” The moment has been referenced and flashed back on throughout the series, as it was the beginning of something very special.

7. Brooke Davis has her happily ever after.

She went through some phases, and Brooke Davis had her issues with boys, but in “The Other Half of Me,” she married the man of her dreams. Julian Baker may not be the coolest guy on the planet, but he continues to make Brooke happy day after day, and that is exactly what every One Tree Hill fan has always wanted someone to do. Haley gave a heart-warming speech about Brooke, and Jamie a cute one about the bride and groom, but the moment that left us all speechless was watching Brooke walk down the aisle in her gorgeous dress.

Be sure to come back tomorrow for Part 2 of our trip down One Tree Hill memory lane. For now let us know which of these three you will remember most:

8. Haley giving birth to Jamie
9. Here you me (one of the best music moments in the history of OTH)
10. Brulian proposal


between season 2,3,4 finales. 2 was all exciting as dan scott went up in flames and there were about 10 suspects. 4 was emotional and a great reference to first ep 'you sure youre up for this old man.. I could do this forver little brother' .. But 3 was perfect, ending perfectly with the nathan jumping in after the limo,4 possible pregnancys,dan being caught and shakesperaes words ending it all.
1. state championship - probbaly the best episode ever. and the bets moment is 'when all my dreams come true, the one I wasnt next to me, its you..its you petyon'.. leyton at last!


9. 'Im the guy for you brooke davis' - although I am a leyton fan, this was epic
8. Haley getting on the tour-bus, I also believe this was the return of JAKE
7. the wind that blew my heart away - It ahd everyhting naley,brucas and a heartbroken peyton finding ellie dead to here comes a regular
6. George Bernard Shaw quotes - between Mouths about kissing erica marsh to jake leaving on that motorcycle. also helped by the fact that JEW were playing may angels lead you in
5.I know Im cheating but running out of space - death of keith scott & death of dan scott .. the tears both times!
4. You cant kill dan scott - EPIC .. especially when disintegration is playing and we have just found out Deb started the fire
3. The rehersal dinner when peyton has to step in and play haley alongside nathan. I am a sucker for flashback and this one incorporates all of leyton moments from season 1-3. and finishes with a hearthbroken peytons voice cracking 'i love you too'
2. Really cant choose between seasons 2,3,4 finales final moments. 4 was a great reference to the old days 'you sure youre up for this old man, I could do this all nigth little brother' ,2 was exciting as dan scott went up in flames and we realised there were about 10 suspects, and 3 was just perfect ending with a sheakesperae quote
1. State Championship - probably my favourite episode. but the best moment in it 'When all my dreams come true, the one I want next to me, Its you Peyton, Its you' .. Finally Leyton!


1.the championship game-to be honest I barely even remember their wedding, most of my memories of leyton come from the
highschool years and this was the one leyton fans had been waiting for so many season. "When all my dreams come true, the one I want next to me.
It's you. It's you Peyton." The second I saw that look on Lucas Scotts face I screeched like a little girl. nothing beats the old
leyton moments. crossing my fingers that maybe we are in store for one last one.
2.the shooting-i've seen a plenty of episode of tv shows revolving around school shootings but none of them did it like tree hill.
reintroducing us to jimmy the episode before and making us feel all the pain he was going through was heart wrenching, I found myself
holding my breath most of this tree hills dramatic moments had always bene enhanced by the music playing during them but
this episode relied on the acting and those actors delivered. not to mention it gave peyton sawyer the balls to kiss lucas scott behind
brookes back again...which really paved the way for them to be together in the future. but really the death of keith was the hardest thing
about that episode. i always loved keith but he was never my favorite character he was just kinda always there and with him gone it
really took some light out of tree hill.


3.dan scotts death-if it hadn't been dan scott this probably would have been my number 1. I hadn't cried this hard since marissa cooper
died. The fact that this show made so many people genuinely upset with this death is a real testament to the writers and paul johansson
as an actor. this final season has really made me fall back in love with tree hill and this was the climax. I'm gonna be really sorry to see this go.
4.naleys wedding-the 2nd one not the original that we never got to see. after it being touch and go there for a while with them this was
the best way to give naley the happy ending they deserved. when haley rode in on that carriage she was freakin gorgeous. lucas walking her down
the aisle was perfect. sometimes its hard to remember now that they really were that close, their friendship is one of the things i miss most
about old tree hill
5.haley leaving-I think every tree hill fan's heart broke when Haley got on that bus. and then the fact that Nathan had decided to try to fix things
before it was too late. That was a dark period of tree hill


6.phsycho derek part 1 and 2-psycho derek beats nanny carrie and crazy sarah look alike and xavier any day. he was the original tree hill psychopath (besides
dan scott) and from time to time I find myself wondering how he is. lol
7.lucas and lindseys wedding-it was more the wedding day that was memorable more than the wedding. the fact that the comet was so literally about peyton
had me cheering jumping up and down acting like I just won the freakin world series. never once did it cross my mind that the comet was the car
and that it was a symbol of that first encounter between them.
8.the fire-that fire started such a chain reaction that we saw the consequences of it all the way up to last week. take note gossip girl writers
that is how you write a tv show. its called continuity.
9.1st episode of the "adult" years-getting to see where all the characters ended up after "4 years" was a treat. and getting to meet james lucas scott
who was the cutest thing on television! he now has been replaced by logan for cutest kid of tree hill but he still holds a special place in all
our hearts i think.


One of my most memorable moments in One Tree Hill was in the first episode, the basketball show down between Lucas and Nathan and as Nathan taunted him, Lucas said, 'this is for my Mom.'
