Suddenly it was as if the roar of the crowd, the echo of the final buzzers, the cheers of my teammates were all sounding from 1,000 miles away, and what remained in that bizarre, muffled silence was only Peyton. The girl whose art, passion, and beauty had changed my life. In that moment, my triumph was not a state championship, but simple clarity. The realization that we had always been meant for each other and every instinct to the contrary had simply been a denial of the following truth - I was now and would always be in love with Peyton Sawyer.

Lucas: We're having a tough time with the whole friends thing. How did you two do it so easily?
Nathan: I make everything look easy.

Lucas: Why are women so screwed up?
Nathan: Let me guess, Peyton.
Lucas: How did you know?
Nathan: Because she's sending you a drink with a check in it.

Peyton: Okay, you know what? I'm gonna pay rent. I don't know how I'm gonna do it, but I'll figure it out, cause whatever this is, I don't feel right about it.
Lucas: It's called me being nice to you.
Peyton: It needs to stop.
Lucas: I don't know, maybe you're right.

Lucas: You gave up on me! That's why you didn't say yes, you didn't think I could do it! You didn't think I could get my novel published, maybe you just didn't care, because it wasn't about you, or what you wanted.
Peyton: Well, if that's the truth, if I never cared, (picking up a copy of Lucas' novel), then how come every time I see this stupid book I buy it, every stupid damn time Luke. You said I was great! You said I could be great! You said we were destined to be together, you said it to the world, you said it to me and I wish you never had because you did not mean any of it!!!

Lucas: I... I gave up on us?
Lucas: By proposing I gave up on us?
Peyton: No! By not waiting you gave up on us, and you know that's the truth!

Lucas: Insecurity? Right. Let me tell you how you get "Always" Peyton: when a man asks you to marry him, you say yes. You don't say no and call him insecure!
Peyton: I never said no! I said that I loved you and that I did wanna marry you some day and, oh God, Luke! I wanted you so bad - but you gave up on us.

Lucas: What's going on?
Peyton: Okay. I went by my old house, there's a teenage girl living there now. She showed me my closet door, and you know what that said? Lucas and Peyton, True Love Always. Always Lucas, that's what we were supposed to have until you showed up in L.A. three years ago and ambushed me.
Lucas: If by ambushed you mean proposed to you?
Peyton: Oh, yeah, out of the blue! A proposal that was driven by some insecurity that I have never been able to understand!

Lucas: I saw your lights on, which isn't that surprising, I mean I know how hard you work. You know, you haven't been yourself lately Peyton. I mean not the Peyton I remember.
Peyton: Well, I haven't been that Peyton for three years.

Peyton: Okay. Can we take this back? Can we just pretend like you never woke up, please?
Lucas: I don't think we can.
Peyton: I'm afraid that this conversation is going to end with...
Peyton: Don't! Come here. Our dreams are going to come true Lucas. My music and your novel. It's gonna happen, I know it.

Lucas: Peyton! We've seen each other three times in the last year. We go days without talking. We trade few emails. We've already grown so far apart. Who knows where we'll be a year from now.
Peyton: Luke if you can't trust that our love can make it one year, I don't understand how we can be talking about forever right now!
Lucas: You're saying no.
Peyton: No! I am not saying no, I am saying not now. I want to marry you someday. Hey don't do that, don't pull away from me. Okay I want us to be together. I love you so much.
Lucas: Just not enough...

Peyton: No god. Luke honey, Whitey believes in you and Nathan needs you and if I ask you to walk away from your dream you're gonna wake up one day and you're gonna resent me for it. The same way I would feel if you asked me to leave LA.
Lucas: Peyton you get people coffee and deliver mail, you were doing more than that in Tree Hill.
Peyton: Well I love you for believing that but I have to prove that to myself. I mean... you see that's the thing, and we both have so much we wanna do with our lives and were only nineteen.
Lucas: And Nathan and Haley were a lot younger than that.
Peyton: Okay well we see how easy that's been. Come on...in another year.
