== Season Nine ==
=== Know This, We've Noticed [9.01] ===
Nathan: People say hell is endless. They say it’s our worst nightmare, the face of our darkness. But whatever it is, however it is, I say hell is empty, and all the devils are here.Brooke: [voiceover] They like it when I drive. So I drive. It's funny. I grew up in Tree Hill. I’ve spent most of my life here, but it wasn’t until my sons were born and couldn’t sleep, that I really got to know this place. That used to be view of Tree Hill at 2am. Well, my partial view. Now this is my view. We drive the same streets I drove in High School and listen to the same music...at least, when we can agree. Sometimes we try the '80s, sometimes classic rock. 2:00 a.M., 3:00 a.M., 4:00. We drive and we think …and we fuss a bit. Sometimes we eat. Well, I eat. I guess some people might let it wear on them, the lack of sleep. But I don't mind it, really I like Tree Hill like this. I like my car like this. Warm... Safe... Loved. It's what I wished for. Mostly. [...] Sometimes my heart aches at how my life turned out, in a good way. It doesn’t mean there haven’t been hardships, there have been. But I’m here, and here is good.Dan: [to Haley] Do you know what it’s like to have a beautiful granddaughter and have no expectations of holding her? Or to accept that you’ll never be a part of your son’s family? Either son. I know what I’ve done. I know what I’ve created. I just need a little help.Haley: I sleep better knowing that your side of the bed is closer to the door, because if somebody breaks in then, they are probably going to break in and get you first and I can run, OK?
Nathan: You say the sweetest things to me Haley James.
Haley: I just miss you, I want you to come home. I feel spoiled when you are here.
Nathan: Well, prepare to be spoiled because I'm going to be home tomorrow night or the next day depending on these flights.
Haley: Really? That just made my heart race.
Nathan: Mine too. Now you take that feeling and you go back to bed OK? I'll be home before you know it.
Haley: OK, I can't wait. I love you Nathan.
Nathan: I love you too, sweet dreams.
=== In The Room Where You Sleep [9.02] ===
Julian: Are the boys okay?
Victoria: Of course they're okay. I've done this before ya know?
Brooke: Barely.Haley: Dan, not a day goes by that I don’t miss Keith. Or hate you for what you did to him. And to Nathan and to our entire family. I have no sympathy for you. But if there is such a thing as rehabilitation or forgiveness, then I believe a person should have the opportunity to prove that they’ve changed. That’s why you’re here.Brooke:: Are you really so threatened that my well being means nothing to you?
Victoria: You sound upset
Brooke: I am upset!
Victoria: Well good that makes two of us.
Brooke: What do you have to be upset about?
Victoria: Well, I’m not getting any younger, I’m not having any sex, and my conniving ex-husband comes into town to steal my daughter and my daughter’s fashion line from me.
Brooke: First of all, ewww. Second of all, Daddy didn’t steal anything. You said no mom.
Victoria: I said not yet and really, daddy when has he ever been a father to you.
Brooke: People change mother
Victoria: Not him. Why do you need his approval or his affection anyway?
Brooke: Because he’s my father!
Victoria: and a poor excuse for one at that. And you completely disregard my feelings in some desperate attempt to get him to love you... More... get him to love you more.
Brooke: Okay, Do you understand how ridiculous this is? I have to make clothes to get my parents attention.
Brooke: That unless I spin the straw into gold or attract investors you two chime in on the holidays at best? Yet I still do it, why? Because I have some insane notion that someday the clothes are going to bring us closer. And that maybe...just maybe mom, my parent's will actually want to spend time with me.
Victoria: You’re right, you’re Right! You should be able to do whatever you like with your father and I should be able to wish you the best
Brooke: Mum, Mum!Jamie: Grandpa Dan, I was worried. I thought maybe you were leaving too.
Dan: Don't worry Jamie. I'm not going anywhere.
=== Love The Way You Lie [9.03] ===
Jamie: Hi mom!
Haley: Hi honey!
Jamie: Grandpa Dan!!! What are you doing here?
Dan: Just helping your mom out…you wanna join?
Customer: Excuse me is that Dan Scott
Customer: How could you allow that man to work for you to be around your children?
Haley: Excuse me?
Customer: He’s a murderer!
Haley: I really don’t think that’s any of your business
Another Customer: Oh yes it is! Especially if he’s cooking our food
Dan: Haley it's ok…I’ll leave…I’ll see you back at the house
Haley: No…you should stay. If anyone here has a problem with this man cooking your food you’re welcome to go someplace else.
Customer: Well we will
Haley: Alright then your food is on the house today…Now get out!Dan: Haley I just wanna say thanks
Haley: Yeah well she was wrong you know you shouldn’t have had to deal with that
Dan: I did the crime
Haley: Doesn’t mean you have to get hammered for it all the timeHaley: Thanks again Dan I really don’t think I could have made it through today without you
Dan: I’m sure you would have found a way…Besides I enjoyed it…If you want me to come in tomorrow it’s really no trouble
Haley: No I don’t think that’s such a good idea…Dan it’s not because of that lady or any of the other customers it’s just…This is Karen’s Café.Julian: Hey you didn’t want to go to the box factory?
Jamie: Nah we were there last week. You know dad and Clay had a hard time with their agency at first
Julian: Yeah I’m starting to think this is just one big bad idea
Jamie: Come on your like the farmer guy in the middle of nowhere who decided to build a baseball field in his back yard everyone told him he was crazy but you know what he built it anyway all because he heard a voice that said “If you build it he will come”…and you know what? He came! In fact lots of people came.
Julian: That’s a pretty good story Jamie. Guess I just need to have a little faith huh?
Jamie: Well the thing is that’s actually a movie…you should probably know that if you wanna make it in show business.
=== Don't You Want to Share the Guilt [9.04] ===
Jamie: I like camping in the backyard. Do you think dad will stay out here with me?
Dan: I think that's a pretty safe bet.
Jamie: Did you guys ever go camping?
Dan: Nah. We never got the chance.
Jamie: Then when he gets home the three of us can!
Dan: You miss him, huh?
Jamie: Yeah, he'll be home soon though.
Dan: Yeah.Haley: [to Julian] When Jamie was 5, I think, Nathan and I were in the kitchen at night, arguing. I remember looking out the window and I saw him playing basketball by the pool. Somewhere between all the yelling and the next time I looked out, he had disappeared and uh, I went outside and he was floating face down in the pool. And we didn’t know how long he had been out there. Nathan pulled him in, and eventually he coughed and he cried, but he was okay. And I felt like I had damaged him. I felt like the worst parent in the world and it took me a really long time to forgive myself for that. But, I did eventually. And you will too, because your babies aren’t going anywhere. Your job doesn’t end. And the best part, we, as parents can do is just love them with all of our hearts. And try and do better next time.Julian: I can only get the heat in here to eighty-five degrees. It was at least a hundred and one when I left Davis. I can’t forgive myself for this, I can’t forgive myself for being so careless. I almost took away the one thing that matters most to us. You wanted a baby more than anything. You waited and you prayed, and you had a miracle happen. Your dream came true and then in one moment, in one horrible stupid moment, I almost took that away from you.
Brooke: But you didn’t. Stop. You didn’t.Dan: Relax. That's not a threat, it's a promise. If I catch you near my family again, I'll kill you.Dan: How many times do I have to do this before you stop being a jackass?
Clay: What the hell are you doing?
Dan: Do you realize you put my family in danger? Jamie and Lydia play in that park. The one where you buy your drugs. My son is your partner, and you're a junkie!
Clay: I'm not doing drugs!
Dan: No? Then why are you buying them?
Clay: I don't remember!
Dan: Don't remember or too stoned to?
Clay: I don't remember. I don't remember, I lied.
Dan: Lied? Why?
Clay: Because I didn't want to scare Quinn. Alright, I don't remember how I got there. I can't remember how I got home. I can't remember anything.
[They both look at Quinn]
Dan: Well fix it, before someone gets hurt!
=== The Killing Moon [9.05] ===
Chris Keller: Oh okay so hey now we're going to make generalizations. So you're the jackass in high school who now gets to harass people and carry a gun.Dan: So how's that boyfriend of yours?
Quinn: You know you didn't need to try to drown Clay.
Dan: Worked last time. Where is he?
Quinn: He's getting help.
Dan: Sounds like it worked again. So how you doing?
Quinn: Well I don't need my head drowned in the pool, if that's what you're asking. I'll be fine when I know Clay's fine.
Dan: So you still believe in him?
Dan: Then you'll both be okay.
=== Catastrophe & The Cure [9.06] ===
Dan: [to the police] You’re right. I lit the dealership on fire, almost burning myself to death in the process, just so I’d have an excuse to murder my own brother. Then serve a full term in jail, get released, get a third world heart transplant, then write a book, start my own motivational talk show, give up my new found fortune, and move to a remote diner just so I could burn it down and collect the $65,000 insurance policy. Then get rid of my son and move in with his family who hates me. Nice work detective. You caught me.Dan: Julian Baker?
Julian: You're looking at him.
Dan: I'll take your word for it. What happened to your face? Wife beat you up? Brooke's a feisty one, huh?
Julian: Dan Scott. What do you want?
Dan: Right to the point, good. I need a work space. I'll give you three grand a month to get rid of the rest of your clients.
Julian: I don't have any other clients.
Dan: Like I said, I'll give you two grand a month. I'll need a trailer and complete privacy.
Julian: To do what?
Dan: Lets make it three grand a month and you don't ask that question again. It's nothing illegal. Deal?
Julian: I'll show you the trailers.Julian: Need any thing?
Dan: Yeah, the complete privacy I paid for. Another notepad.
Julian: What is that?
Dan: A List of my enemies. Better make that two notepads.Dan: Let me ask you a question. If I let you help me, who are you going to be looking for? Nathan or yourself?
Julian: Both.Dan: You think you've got it bad? You left one of your kids in the car. I left mine for good. You're a good father Julian. You're going to be a good father. Go on. Go inside and kiss your wife. Do something I can't, hug your sons. Cause trust me I would do anything to be able to do that again. Go on.
Julian: We'll find him.
=== Last Known Surroundings [9.07] ===
Nathan: You think I'm afraid? I'm not afraid of you. You can take my world, you can take my life, but you won't get my fear. I'm not afraid of you and I'm not going to be.Clay: I just got in the car one day and started driving. Stayed in cheap hotels, ate fast food. Nobody saw me or looked me in the eye. That's how I wanted it to be. I drove uh, I drove as far as I could and I decided that uh, when I ran out of road uh I would check into a hotel somewhere and I'd kill myself. That's when I saw her. At the end of the road. She was standing on the balcony of a stupidly large beach house. So I rented it and stayed up that night talking to her like we used to. And she told me to stop feeling sorry for myself and to get back to work. So I did. And then I found Nate.Haley: Thank you for everything.
Lucas: Thank you for letting me, thank you for calling me, for letting me help you for once. Thank you for being you Hales. I could never thank you enough for that.
Haley: I miss you Lucas.
Lucas: I love you.
Haley: Yeah, that too.
=== A Rush of Blood to the Head [9.08] ===
Julian: [to X] I'm telling you right now, prison will be the least of your worries if you come near my family again.Haley voiceover: Nathan, from the second I heard those words; "we found a body", my heart sank. I couldn't move, I couldn't think. And now that I've managed to at least move, all I can think about is one moment you and I shared years ago, over and over that same insignificant moment repeats in my head. I-I can't tell you why.. It was your birthday. Your first year playing for Maryland, Jamie must've been two. You said you didn't wanna do anything, but I insisted on at least having your favorite ice cream, you remember this? When I brought back mint chocolate chip, and you asked why I thought that was your favorite, I was so confused. Anytime we had gotten ice cream together that's what you always chose. But you told me rocky road was your favorite. And you looked at me, so tenderly, Nathan, and you said you always chose mint chocolate chip because you knew it was my favorite flavor. And that's when I realized, for the first time, that you hadn't been making any of your decisions for yourself. You were doing everything for me, all along, for your family. And it occurred to me that we still had so much to learn about each other. And since then, Nathan, I've learned about how wonderfully selfless, humble, strong man you are. Nathan, I can't hear that you'll never come home again. That I'll never learn something new about you again. Never experience your selflessness, your love, your warm touch again. Nathan.. Please. Have we really had our last conversation? Our last kiss? I don't know what I'd do.. Please..Inmate: Scott. That t.v. show of yours. Do you think we will find redemption for the things we've done?
Dan: I wouldn't count on it.
Inmate: Then I'll see you in Hell, my friend.
Dan: I'll save you a seat.Deb: I can't lose him, Dan.
Dan: I know.
Deb: He's all I have.
Dan: I'll get him back. I'll make everything alright again.Therapist: What did you see?
Clay: You know what I saw. I saw my son. You're telling me that he's my son?
Therapist: I'm not telling you anything. You have to tell me.
Clay: How'd you do this? You're screwing with my head!
Therapist: Clay, I haven't done anything. Like I said before, I believe your mind has been trying to tell you something for quite some time now.
Clay: So you've know about this the whole time. You let me walk around unaware of my own child, for years, until I'm some sort of zombie waking up on merry-go-rounds. Why the hell didn't you tell me?
Therapist: We tried.
Clay: Who's we?
Therapist: Sara's parents, me. Clay, I told you every day after Sara died. I told you, but you blocked it out. You weren't ready.
Clay: Well I'm not ready now either. He said that you told him he's going to be leaving soon. Why? Because he's going to be leaving with me? He's not leaving with me!
=== Every Breath Is A Bomb [9.09] ===
Haley: That's what you meant by being smart?
Dan: He has a gun, now so do I.
Haley: And this is your master plan?
Dan: This is not a disagreement with someone at a PTA meeting, Haley. These are dangerous people. You want Nathan back, this might be what it takes to get him back.
Haley: You're going to get yourself killed.Billy: [to Haley] Damn girl, I can't wait to hit that.
Dan: That's just what I was thinking.
[grabs Billy and starts hitting him]Haley: [to Dan] Bring Nathan home. I don't care what it takes. Bring him home.Billy: You're dead. You know that? You're dead!
Dan: There's something you should know about me. I don't do well with threats. You see, I'm going to find my son whether you talk or not. The only thing is, will you still be breathing when I do? Now I'm going to ask you a few questions; feel free to shout out the answers. You see, that's the good news about having your own sound stage. No one can hear you scream.
=== Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will [9.10] ===
Chris Keller: Chris Keller’s too pretty to go to prison.
Julian: Yeah, that’s what I said.
Chris Keller: You said Chris Keller was pretty?Nathan: There was a moment when I was lost, when they had beaten me. And I decided to beg them to let me live to see my beautiful wife,my son, and my daughter. To breathe another breath and lie in the sun and just live. But begging them wouldn’t change things. It would only give them satisfaction and that I wouldn’t do. No, this would be the job they carried with them for the rest of their lives. This would be the one they felt guilty about. That their older, fading selves woke up regretting in the middle of the night trying to quiet their remorse before their own deaths were upon them. So I made a decision to give them nothing. And in that moment one word came to mind...FORTITUDE.Dan: You sure you thought this thing through, Keller?
Chris: What's that supposed to mean?
Dan: You say you want to help Haley. You have a thing for her. You have since high school.
Dan: So from where I stand, this is a lose-lose for you. If you don't bring Nathan back, you've failed her. If you do, you lose her anyway. Once Nathan comes home, you're out of the picture.
Chris: So are you. Yeah, Haley told me all about it. Once Nathan comes back, you lose your family. So from where I'm standing, it's worse for you. Because I lose what I never had. But you had it. Your son, your grandkids. All of it. But here we are.Julian: I need to believe that there's still justice, that even now in a world full of grey and spin and compromise, that if you choose to do wrong, and you prey on good people when you do, someone will stand up to you. Someone will take a stand and fight back.Clay: Sometimes I think we waste our words and we waste our moments, and we don’t take the time to say the things that are in our hearts when we have the chance.
=== Danny Boy [9.11] ===
Nathan: Dad, why does this have to be so difficult? You're my father so I should love you but I spent so much of my life hating you.
Dan: I was a terrible father. I know that.
Nathan: You know, I can justify a lot of the screwed up things you've done. You bullied me because you wanted to make me tough. You tried to ruin my marriage because you wanted me to have a career. You even burned down your diner because you wanted to see me again. But I can't understand how you can murder your own brother. And I'm worried, when you're gone that's all I'll remember, and still hate you for it.
Dan: You should hate me for it.
Nathan: So why did you do it?
Dan: I was always jealous of Keith. Even when we were kids. I was athletic, popular, all the things that he wasn't, but still, I was jealous of him. And people were drawn to Keith, and I hated him for it.
Nathan: So you shot him because people liked him more?
Dan: The day I shot Keith I was in a dark place. I was convinced that he tried to kill me, I had lost you, divorced your mom, my life was spiraling downwards and meanwhile Keith was building a new life with my high school sweat-heart and the child I'd abandoned. Every time I looked at him I felt I like I was punched in the gut.
Nathan: So what happened in that hallway?
Dan: Keith wanted to go into the school to save that kid, so I let him go, hoping he'd get shot. Let him be the hero, as long as he was a dead hero. And then I thought, why should he be the hero, when it could be me? So I followed him in. Jimmy was crying and Keith was telling him, it gets better, that pain in your heart, that voice in your head that tells ya there's no way out, it's wrong. It gets better. And I felt like he was talking to me. And in that moment, maybe the most heroic, kindest moment of my big brothers life, I hated him. I hated him more than anyone, or anything. Because nothing had gotten better. That pain was still in my heart. That voice in my head saying there's no way out was right! And he was standing there, lying to me! And after Jimmy died, I picked up the gun and aimed it at Keith, and he looked at me, and all I could think of was how everything that had gone wrong in my life was his fault. And it wasn't going to get better until he was gone. Just pull the trigger and it all ends. So I pulled that trigger. And It didn't end! It got worse. I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry.
[Dan breaks down crying]
Nathan: There are a lot of people you need to say I'm sorry to, but I'm not one of them. I wouldn't be where I am if it wasn't for you. My career, my family, my life. No matter what you've done, you're still my father. My father, and I love you.
Dan: Oh Nathan, I love you too.Dan: You know, we never got a chance to play a game together on the river court. How bout it?
Nathan: What do you want to play to?
Dan: Let's not keep score. For once, lets just play to play.Nathan: You have a son?
Nathan: How long have I been gone?
Clay: Six years, apparently.
Nathan: How is it that out of the two of us, I don't have the most shocking news?
Clay: That shouldn't have happened to you. It's my fault. I should have been the one to go to Europe.
Nathan: No... no you shouldn't have. Dan wouldn't have come to save you. He can't stand you.
[both laugh]Dan: What are we doing back here, Keith?
Keith: I don't think either one of us ever really left, Danny.
Dan: Keith, if I could take it back-
Keith: Well you can't. I think we both know that.
Dan: I'm so sorry. For that day and every day before it.
Keith: I know you are, Danny. And I forgive you.
Dan: I took you away from everyone and everything you've ever cared about. How could you just forgive me?
Keith: Well you're dead, Dan. If I can't forgive you now, when can I? Look, Danny, you've done some horrific things, you can't change that, and you can't take it back. But since then you've done everything you could to make up for it. You've become a better man.
Dan: I lied about my heart transplant, my book and show were a fraud, I set my own diner on fire.
Keith: Well, I didn't say you were perfect. But nobody is. But you learned whats important, you learned to put friends and family first, and you've become the selfless, kind person that I always wanted for a brother.
Dan: The kind of brother you were. There were so many years I was so jealous of you, I should have been trying to be more like you, I should have been proud of you. I am proud of you. I love you, Keith.
Keith: I love you too, Danny. Come on.
[Keith shows Dan his family standing over his body]
Keith: I told ya the voice was wrong. It gets better. Come on little brother. Take a walk with me.Dan: I know where you're going, but what about me?
Keith: Don't worry little brother. You're my plus one.
=== Anyone Who Had A Heart [9.12] ===
Julian: I think it works even better if An Unkindness of Ravens is serialized. You know, make it a TV show instead of a movie.
Brooke: [acting like a network executive] Isn’t that a lot like The Creek?
Julian: To some degree, sure, but it’ll have its own voice, find its own audience. Besides, all you people do is remake everything now anyway.
Brooke: What about vampires? We were hoping for more of them in the pilot. We like vampires. And werewolves. We like werewolves.
Julian: There’s not gonna be any vampires or werewolves in this show... I might consider zombies.Brooke: My parents don’t see me. And when they do see me, it’s only because they’re angry about something. My dad golfs and my mom shops and I can’t remember the last time we laughed together. Or just sat quietly together. I’d like to just sit with them. Be a family. Hear them say they love me. I see my friends and they seem to have real families. And maybe everything isn’t as nice as I imagine but I feel like they have more love around them than I do. And that’s more disappointing than I have words for. There’s this thing called the Burning Boat Festival coming up. We do it every year and this year I can tell my mom wants to throw in my dad and my dad wants to throw in my mom. And me, I’d be happy to chuck the whole thing in.Julian: [to Ted] How you’ve treated Brooke is unacceptable. As her husband and the father of her kids, I’m not gonna let anyone, not even her father, put her in a corner. And just because I referenced Dirty Dancing doesn’t mean I’m not serious right now.Haley: Love means giving chances when there aren't any more to give.Clay: Thank you for everything you've done for me. Thank you for sleeping in a tent and for going in the ocean. Whatever happened to immensity?
Quinn: Immensity's not so scary when I have our family to help me face it.
Clay: "Our family." I like the way that sounds. I love you so much, Quinn.
Quinn: And I love you.
Clay: We should get married. Want to?
Clay: I haven't gotten you a ring yet.I'm sorry, but I want to marry you. I love you.
[Logan pops up his power ring]
Clay: Clutch move, kid...Marry me, Quinn James.
Quinn: Yes, of course I will.
=== One Tree Hill [9.13] ===
Note: This episode was 75 minutes long.
Quinn: [voiceover] It doesn't matter how you planned it. It doesn't matter how you envision it. Without even knowing it sometimes life has a way of finding exactly what you need or exactly who you need.Julian: [voiceover] It’s funny how our past frames us; how the person we used to be never lets loose of the person we are. Past failures and disappointments, even victories take hold of us. They haunt us like ghosts, or visit us like old friends.Brooke: I wished for this. Right here without even knowing it. I wished for you and our family and this. Ever since New York I wanted to come home. I just knew in my heart that there was treasure here, and I found it. In our sons. In my parents. In you. This house always wanted to be a home and now it will be. Our home. Everyone should have that, a place that makes them happy.Haley: [Voice-over] Human beings are ambitious. We spend so much time wanting, pursuing, wishing. For the most part, that's okay. Ambition is good. Chasing things with integrity is good. Dreaming. As long as the chase doesn't diminish what we already have. The goodness we take for granted, the people we take for granted. The lives we take for granted.My life is good.Haley: It’s a magical place, son. I’ve seen that magic in your eyes for the past nine years. There’s only one Tree Hill, Jamie Scott. And it’s your home.Julian: You somewhere down memory lane?
Julian: Good. Stay there and tell me what I should remember about this place. What made it so special?
Brooke: Oh I don't know. What makes any high school special? This is where it all happened for the first time. The heartache and the happiness. All of it. Being in this hallway, feels like it was yesterday...I wake up sometimes and I miss it. But this is good. It's all still right here.
Julian: Let's get a juice box.Nathan: It’s the oldest story in the world. One day you’re 17 and planning for someday. And then quietly and without you ever really noticing, someday is today. And then someday is yesterday. And this is your life.
Haley: We spend so much time wanting, pursuing, wishing. But ambition is good. Chasing things with integrity is good. Dreaming…
Brooke: If you had a friend you knew you’d never see again, what would you say? If you could do one last thing for someone you love, what would it be? Say it, do it, don’t wait. Nothing lasts forever.
Mouth: Make a wish and place it in your heart. Anything you want. Everything you want.
Millie: Do you have it? Good. Now believe it can come true.
Quinn: You never know where the next miracle’s gonna come from.
Clay: The next memory. The next smile. The next wish come true.
Chase: But if you believe that it’s right around the corner.
Chris: And you open your heart and mind to the possibility of it. To the certainty of it.
Skills: You might just get the thing you’re wishing for.
Julian: The world is full of magic. You just have to believe in it.
Brooke: So make your wish ... Do you have it?
Nathan: Good. Now believe in it.
Haley: With all your heart.Season 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
