(voiceover) Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swamps of the not quite, the not yet, and the not at all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists. It is real. It is possible. It is yours.


What are you doing? Putting on your makeup? Get into the gym and start warming up. Jagielski, when you find the pumps to match your skirt, you might get into the gym, too.


(to Peyton) Your art matters. That's what got me here.


Be nice, be nice, put it in there. There you go.


Whitey: You're gonna be okay.
Lucas: Yeah, I am.

She doesn't want to go. She doesn't wanna see her high school sweetheart slash your brother Dan slash the jerk who abandoned Lucas slash the father of Nathan, the team's star player slash my wrists if I hear the story again. Let's go.


Lucas: I didn't want to be like him and I was afraid that I'd become him if I played. In the gym, I felt like he had a piece of me. I never felt like that on the playground.
Karen: Well, I'd say he's taken enough from us. I took the night off to watch my son play again. The way that he used to when he loved the game more than anything.

It's the rule of the life - the prettier the girl - the messier car; kind of a turn on.


Peyton: Unbelievable!
Nathan: What? Peyton, did you see how bad he sucked tonight?
Peyton: So?
Nathan: He was horrible! I've never seen a guy play so bad
Peyton: And you enjoyed that?
Nathan: Hell yeah. Didn't you? What is this, Peyton? You like this guy or something?
Peyton: You mean more than my boyfriend who I'm trying to make out with right now?
Nathan: Well, put some ice on it. You ever think I might want to talk?
Peyton: No, you don't. You want to celebrate a public humuliation. And I'm sorry. That's a little played out.
Nathan: Oh, and being with you isn't?

There's no shame in being afraid. Hell, we're all afraid. What you gotta do is figure out what you're afraid of because when you put a face on it, you can beat it. Better yet, you can use it.


Nathan: You've got some ugly toes, girl.
Peyton: No, I don't.
Nathan: Yeah, you do. They're practically like fingers.
Peyton: Well, then just focus on the middle one.

Dear diary, my daddy doesn't love me. P.S. stay out of my stuff!
