Lucas: Tennessee Williams once wrote: When so many are lonely as seem to be lonely it would be inexcusably selfish to be lonely alone.

Felix: Brooke, just talk to me. Just tell me how you feel. I know it's scary and I know you had a hard time with Lucas. But just tell me if you can show me your heart. Because if you do, I'll guard it with my life. Just say okay.
Brooke: Okay.

Mr. Turner: Maybe so but there are counselors you can talk to. Literature you can read.
Peyton: Okay, I'm ... I'm not gay, Mr. Turner!!! But you know what; if I was I wouldn't let other people tear me down because of it and I sure as hell wouldn't be looking for my answers in one of your pamphlets!
Mr. Turner: Policy is clear, Peyton. Remove the shirt or be suspended.
Peyton: Fine. [takes off her shirt and throws it at him] Can you hear my song now, Mr. Turner?
Mr. Turner: Enjoy your suspension, Miss Sawyer.

Mr. Turner: Miss Sawyer, you know we have a policy regarding wardrobe that's offensive or profane.
Peyton: [points to her locker] Does that policy extend to lockers, 'cuz you haven't removed that yet have you?
Mr. Turner: You know the drill: go to the office and change or be sent home.
Peyton: Ok, Mr. Turner, have you ever heard of Victor Jara? No? Um... he was this musician, right, and he fought injustice with his songs and when they broke his hands and when they taunted him, he just sang even louder.
Mr. Turner: Look, Peyton, oppression's not exactly a mystery to me, ok? I feel your pain.
Peyton: No... no you don't. Ok, I'm sorry, but you don't know anything about my pain!

Chris: Why?.. Can't you trust her? I mean, isn't that what this is about? You love her.. you married her.. but can you trust her? 'Cause if you can, you got nothing to worry about right? Come on, man, I don't have a problem with you.
Nathan: You see, you do have a problem with me; a big problem! You could smile and act cool if you want to but the fact is, man: I used to destroy guys like you. Daily. It'd be a shame if something happened to this hand; you couldn't play that little guitar anymore huh? Just like it'd be a shame if you were taking advantage of Haley. Don't cry rock star.. ruin your make-up.

Chris Keller: Looking for your wife?
Nathan: You're funny. You're also done messing with Haley.
Chris: We're just rehearsing, man.
Nathan: No, you were rehearsing. That's over now.

Anna: First they put away the dealers,keep our kids safe and off the street. Then they put away the prostitutes, keep married men cloistered at home. Then they shooed away the bums, then they beat and bashed the queers, turned away asylum-seekers, fed us suspicions and fears. We didn't raise our voice, we didn't make a fuss. It's funny there was no one left to notice when they came for us.
Peyton: Anna, it's not about who I am, okay. It's about who they are. They are people who hate, and they divide, and they feed off of people who don't fight back. Yeah I could laugh this off, but what about the girl who can't? Who's gonna help her? Silence only makes them stronger.

Lucas: Nathaniel Hawthorne once wrote: No man, for any considerable period can wear one face to himself and another to the multitude without finally getting bewildered as to which may be the true.

Brooke: So, thanks for breakfast... We should do this more often.
Lucas: Do what?
Brooke: Be friends.
Lucas: We are friends.
Brooke: Yeah, but we should BE friends.
Lucas: I'd like that.
Brooke: But no benefits.
