OTH launched itself on the whole basketball aspect and how Lucas joining the team changed his future and his path. Additionally, Lucas joining the Ravens was the catalyst for change in all the other main characters, whether it was meeting, hooking up, friendships, changing perspectives, etc. -- Leigh Raines
Lucas: I need you to trust me and believe me when I tell you that my heart is with you. Part of me feels like ever since we got back together you've been waiting, waiting to push me away. Brooke: Oh great, so you kiss Peyton, again, and I'm pushing you away!? Lucas: I love you Brooke, I don't know how else to say it. Brooke: How about how you show it? I'm not pushing you away Lucas. I am holding on for dear life, but I need you to need me back. Okay, why wouldn't you tell me about the kiss and why didn't you call me while you were away and why won't you ever just let me all the way in? We have to go give our toasts now, about love.
