Nathan: So now I know. I don't ever remember feeling like this, Haley. Yeah, like with my dad, but she abandoned me.
Haley: I'm sorry.
Nathan: I can't go back there. I can't live with my dad, either. I'm screwed.
Haley: Maybe not. There might be an answer.

Dan: Five-speed Mustang fully-loaded and it's all yours. I know this divorce has been hard on you, Nate. I just want to thank you for sticking by the old man. What's the matter? You're not supposed to look around at a gift, ya know.
Nathan: It's not a gift, Dad. This is a bribe.
Dan: A bribe, wow! Not exactly the thank you I was expecting.
Nathan: Ok, thanks for the car, Dad. Now I can get away from you whenever I want.

Nathan: You know, I don't know how I deal with all this crap with my parents if you weren't around.
Haley: You're welcome.
Natha: I'm serious. It's like the worse things get with my parents, the better things get with you.
Haley: Are things really awful with your parents?
Nathan: It's a war zone and I'm stuck with whoever's got the best lawyer.
Haley: Aww, you should know your rights.
Nathan: It's not like I have any.
Haley: No, you do. Let's find out. Knowledge is power.

Nathan: Do you sing?
Haley: I, um, sing when no one is around.
Nathan: Well, I think you should sing for me sometime.

Nathan: Wait a minute, is this...is this a new outfit?
Haley: He noticed. Yes it is. It's all about the new me. Do you like?
Nathan: Yeah, but what's wrong with the old you?
Haley: Nothing. I just thought I'd branch out and try some new things.
Nathan: This could be good. Like what?
Haley: I don't know. There's a lot I wanna try that I never did.
Nathan: Like fooling around with me?

Haley: Nathan, I'm not in the mood right now.
Nathan: Lucas is awake. I was there when he opened his eyes. I went to see him.
Haley: Why?
Nathan: Because I knew you couldn't. I wanted him to know that you were thinking about him. Look, I know it was wrong to go after you for the reasons I did. I can't apologize for that, but I'm glad I did, but I'm not that person anymore because of you. Let me take you to him.

Luke: (wakes up in hospital) Water ... What are you doing here?
Nathan: It's a long story. Let me get your mom.

(talking to Luke, lying in hospital unconscious.) Hey, man. I came here to talk to you. So, I'm here because, uhh, everything is screwed up. Look, I know you don't trust me with Haley, but I like her a lot, you know. She's hurting a lot now, too. She needs you to open your eyes, man. She feels like she can't be forgiven, and I'm sort of in the same place. This accident, it might not turn out so bad, ya know. You can take a break from the game and people's expectations. I wish I had that chance. It might be hard to believe, but maybe you're the lucky one. You can get out.

Haley: I can't do this.
Nathan: Yes, you can like this. Alright, square your shoulders to the basket. Bring the ball up right past your nose like this, okay? Bend your knees a little, just relax your hips, and just shoot. Okay, that wasn't perfect, but it also wasn't embarrassing. It was actually kind of sexy.

Nathan: You realize I've seen you in that crochete thing you wear, right?
Haley: Come on, this is embarrassing. I want you to think I'm not embarrassing.
Nathan: You don't embarrass me, Haley.
Haley: Oh, yeah, ok.
Nathan: Ok, I take that back.

Nathan: Was that your jump shot? Because if that was your jump shot, I can't date you anymore. My mom said you would be here, something about a grade?
Haley: Yeah, you cannot be here right now.
Nathan: Why not?
Haley: Because I look stupid.

Nathan: You should come tonight. Maybe you'll make everyone behave.
Haley: I'll come if you want me to.
Nathan: No, I wasn't serious. I wouldn't put you through that.
Haley: No, I mean, if you're asking, of course, my answer is yes.
Nathan: Well, then, I'm asking.
Haley: Well, then, I'm coming.

One Tree Hill Quotes

Regret comes in all shapes and sizes. Some are small , like when we do a bad thing, for a good reason. Some are bigger, like when we let down a friend. Some of us escape the pains of regret by making the right choice. Some of us have little time for regret, because we're looking forward to the future. Sometimes we have to fight to come to terms with the past. And sometimes we bury our regret, by promising to change our ways. But our biggest regrets are not for the things we did... but the things we didn't do. The things we didn't say that could save someone we care about. Especially when we can see the dark storm that's headed their way.

Lucas

Happiness is not a destination. It is a mood, it is not permanent. It comes and goes and if people thought that way then maybe people would find happiness more often.
