“Yeah, it’s like you touched my soul. And a few days ago I was ready to quit again… but you saved me, with the words you wrote about me in your novel. So, if you’re struggling to write the next one… you should know… that your art matters, Lucas. It’s what got me here.”
“Dear Molly, this is gonna sound a little strange but I’d like you to paint over my old closet door. The thing is there is never a time when you will be more honest, and your convictions will be stronger, and your motives will be more pure than they are right now. Which means you should chase whatever excites you. Be confident, and take risks, and paint over my words so you can start writing your own. My story may have inspired you, but I’m certain your story will inspire the next girl to live in our room. I want you to know you don’t need somebody to write about you in order for your life to mean something. You can write about yourself… make your own destiny. Then years from now the next girl will keep what you write on that door long enough to remind you how inspired your life is. And you can tell that girl to paint over the door because you realize the words you wrote, the friends you had, the urgency you felt will always be there under the paint. The love you professed will always be there, the spark of something undeniable, a seed of hope, the truth for better or for worse burning fiercely just below the surface. Love Peyton.”
[Psycho Derek storyline] -“I always imagined what it’d be like to know you. You know, to really get inside you. And now I can’t ever imagine not knowing you… not mattering to you. I matter to you, don’t I, Peyton?“
I want to believe in it all again. Music and art, fate and love. And I want to believe that I’ve made the right choices and that I’m on the right path and there’s still time to fix the mistakes I’ve made… I guess I want hope.
[Season 4] - “Imagine a future moment in your life where all your dreams come true. You know, it’s the greatest moment of your life, and you get to experience it with one person. Who’s standing next to you?”
When I think of everyone else out there in the world that goes through their life alone, and then I think of all the amazing years I’ve gotten to spend with my beautiful, beautiful best friend, Brooke Davis… I kind of feel sorry for everybody else.
“I don’t know who I’d be without my angry, growly rock and my dark drawings. I don’t know who I’d be if I just let all that go. Would I still be me? Or would I be a better me? I don’t know. Sometimes I wonder if I could just put it all down, you know, like all that sadness and anger.”
“This is my world, ok? That’s my music, this is my art. Art that has everything to do with mom.”
I was torn between s1 and s3 because s1 is when I fell for her. I just loved how tortured and complex she was. The fact that she was so immerse into music and that she expressed herself through art.
But I think I loved her journey in s3 the most. I saw her becoming more confident, starting to shape her dreams. I loved her storyline with Ellie, it was so well written, it’s the kind of storyline that you wish for your favourite character.
Season 3 was also her chance to show how talented she is, how her passion for music is a true gift. She was 17 and she produced an album, she was able to organize concerts at TRIC - she’s definitely not your ordinary teenager.
This season for her was the one were she explore herself. It wasn’t really focused on her love life, it was mostly about a personal growth, which also led to facing some of her fears and being honest with herself about what she sees in her future and who is in her heart.
I never let myself need anybody. Ever. Not since my mom died. But with Lucas, he looks at me and he really sees me. You know? Just right down into my soul… I just want to tell him I’m in love with him.
