Lucas: Brooke, I’m sorry I said that. You’re not psychotic. I mean, a little disturbed, maybe.
Brooke: You think this is funny?!
Lucas: Know what I think? I think you’re trying to sabotage us. Find any reason so you can end it. So that you don’t have to worry about getting hurt again.
Brooke: But the same words, Lucas? The exact same words?
Lucas: I never sent that letter to Peyton.
Brooke: And I never sent my letters to you either but they still meant something! Just tell me, why me, this time? Why not Peyton?
Lucas: I can’t say anything bad about Peyton. She’s my friend, and she’s your best friend!
Brooke: That’s okay, you can say bad things about her.
Lucas: Oh, Brooke. The truth is, I care about Peyton.
Brooke: Then what is the difference?
Lucas: The difference… The difference is I love you, Brooke. I wanna be with you, not Peyton.
Brooke: But why? I need to know why.
Lucas: Because you kink your eyebrow when you’re trying to be cute. Because you quote Camus, even though I’ve never actually seen you read. And because, you miss your parents, but you’ll never ever admit that. And because I’ve given exactly two of these embarrassing speeches in my entire life, and they’ve both been with you. I mean, that’s gotta mean something right? And because we’re both gonna get pneumonia. But if you need to hear why I love you, I can go on all night.
Brooke: You did pretty good.
