(voiceover) There is a tide in the affairs of men, which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune but omitted, and the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and mesires. On such a full sea are we now afloat and we must take the current when it serves or lose the ventures before us.

Lucas

Lucas: You ever have something that you knew that you were better at than... almost anybody else?
Peyton: Sex. (pauses) Joke.

Peyton: So, what did you bet?
Lucas: I win, Nathan stays on the team.
Peyton: Why?
Lucas: Because it's the last thing he wants. And anyway, it's not about him.

Dan: I'm only thinking of the kid.
Karen: You have no right to think of him - not today or any other day of his life. How dare you.
Dan: Are you finished?
Karen: I haven't even started!

Lucas: Can I ask you a question?
Peyton: It's a free country...
Lucas: Why are you a cheerleader? I mean, no offense or anything, but you're about the least cheery person I know. ... Come on, let me give you a ride. I'll let you insult me.
Peyton: First of all, you don't know me. Second of all, you don't know me. God, why are guys such jerks?

Dan: Nathan. Remember, 20 shots, no less.
Nathan: Got it, Dad.
Coach Durham: Quit yakking and warm up.

Lucas: Did you change your hair?
Karen: If by "change," you mean "drag a brush through it," then yeah.

Dan: You're despicable, you know that? Letting the dreams of this team just vanish. You're full of crap.
Coach Durham: It comes with old age, Danny: constipation.

Dan: Yeah. And this bet tonight. Is that a joke, too? Or would you really quit the team? You have everything to lose here and nothing to gain.
Nathan: Sometimes what you call "everything," I call "nothing."
