“I mean, it sneaks up on you. Right? But one day, you look at your life, and it has purpose, and someone that makes you feel very special, and friends. And it’s like, all of a sudden, all that time and painthat it took to get there, it just …doesn’t matter anymore.”
Peyton: Okay. I went by my old house, there’s a teenage girl living there now. She showed me my closet door, and you know what that said? Lucas and Peyton, True Love Always. Always Lucas, that’s what we were supposed to have until you showed up in L.A. three years ago and ambushed me. Lucas: If by ambushed you mean proposed to you? Peyton: Oh, yeah, out of the blue! A proposal that was driven by some insecurity that I have never been able to understand Lucas: Insecurity? Right. Let me tell you how you get “Always” Peyton: when a man asks you to marry him, you say yes. You don’t say no and call him insecure! Peyton: I never said no! I said that I loved you and that I did wanna marry you some day and, oh God, Luke! I wanted you so bad - but you gave up on us Lucas: I… I gave up on us? Peyton: Yes! Lucas: By proposing I gave up on us? Peyton: No! By not waiting you gave up on us, and you know that’s the truth! Lucas: You gave up on me! That’s why you didn’t say yes, you didn’t think I could do it! You didn’t think I could get my novel published, maybe you just didn’t care, because it wasn’t about you, or what you wanted. Peyton: Well, if that’s the truth, if I never cared, (picking up a copy of Lucas’ novel), then how come every time I see this stupid book I buy it, every stupid damn time Luke. You said I was great! You said I could be great! You said we were destined to be together, you said it to the world, you said it to me and I wish you never had because you did not mean any of it!
