Chad Michael Murray: Lucas Scott

Quotes 

  • Haley James : [Small flock of birds just flew at her]  Damn! What is up? I was attacked by a flock of crows last week! I'm totally serious!

    Lucas 'Luke' Scott : By the way, it's a murder.

    Haley James : What?

    Lucas 'Luke' Scott : More than one crow is a murder.

    Haley James : I don't know what the hell you're talking about.

    Lucas 'Luke' Scott : A parliament of owls, an exaltation of larks... a murder of crows.

    Haley James : I think that is why people think you're weird, right there.

    Lucas 'Luke' Scott : I would like to show him sometimes, what a mistake he's made.

    Haley James : Dan?

    Lucas 'Luke' Scott : Mostly for Mom... and sometimes for me.

    Haley James : So Luke, what are ravens? I mean, you know, more than one?

    Lucas 'Luke' Scott : An unkindness.

  • Coach Whitey Durham : Nice, isn't it? A lot of people like their gyms loud. I like mine like this: quiet, clean... kind of like a church. A lot of praying done here, anyway. You played ball in grade school. Why'd you quit?

    Lucas 'Luke' Scott : I didn't.

    Coach Whitey Durham : [chuckling]  What, four guys in a park? That's not exactly basketball.

    Lucas 'Luke' Scott : Then what do you think we're doin' out there?

    Coach Whitey Durham : I don't know. Planning a bank job? Look, I've got an opening in my lineup. Varsity. Chance of a lifetime. What do you say?

    Lucas 'Luke' Scott : I say those people that pray here waste their time. God doesn't watch sports.

  • Lucas 'Luke' Scott : Anyway... Guys kept teasing me about it, about how Nathan's dad was my dad, too. So I asked my mom, and she said he wasn't. But I get home, and I hear her crying in her room. I knew it was true. So I never went back. I told my mom it was because I didn't want to have to see his face. But, it was mostly because I didn't want her to have to.

  • Lucas 'Luke' Scott : [Peyton's car has broken down, Lucas comes to tow it]  Can I ask you a question?

    Peyton : It's a free country.

    Lucas 'Luke' Scott : Why are you a cheerleader? I mean, no offense or anything, but you're about the least cheery person I know.

    [Gets in wrecker, Peyton is waiting for Nathan to show up] 

    Lucas 'Luke' Scott : Come on, let me give you a ride. I'll let you insult me.

    Peyton : First of all, you don't know me. Second of all, you don't know me. God, why are guys suck jerks?

    Lucas 'Luke' Scott : Guys or Nathan?

    Peyton : Him. You.

    Lucas 'Luke' Scott : I don't know. We share the same father.

    Peyton : Yeah, I heard that. He's kind of an ass. That must suck, having to see him around.

    Lucas 'Luke' Scott : For my mom. I never knew him.

    Peyton : But she told you he was your dad?

    Lucas 'Luke' Scott : Yeah, eventually. We used to play in junior leagues together, me and Nathan.

    Peyton : Basketball?

    Lucas 'Luke' Scott : Yeah. And I loved it, and I was good at it. Have you ever had something that you knew that you were better at than almost anybody else?

    Peyton : Sex.

    [Lucas gives her a look] 

    Peyton : Joke.

    Lucas 'Luke' Scott : Anyway. Guys kept teasing me about it, about how Nathan's dad was my dad too. So I asked my mom, and she said he wasn't, but, I get home, and I hear her crying in her room. And I knew it was true. So I never went back. And I told my mom it was because I didn't want to have to see his face. But it was mostly because... I don't want her to have to.

    Peyton : So why'd you just tell me all that? I mean, we don't even know each other.

    Lucas 'Luke' Scott : Maybe that's the point.

  • Lucas 'Luke' Scott : Did you change your hair?

    Karen Roe : If by "change" you mean "dragged a brush through it", then yeah.

  • Peyton : So, what did you bet?

    Lucas 'Luke' Scott : I win, Nathan stays on the team.

    Peyton : Why?

    Lucas 'Luke' Scott : Because it's the last thing he wants. And anyway, it's not about him.

  • Lucas 'Luke' Scott : [voiceover]  There is a tide in the affairs of men, which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune but omitted, and the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries. On such a full sea are we now afloat and we must take the current when it serves or lose the ventures before us. -Julius Caeser

  • Karen Roe : So, I got something for you, Lucas.

    Haley James : Actually, I found it. Not that I was looking for something specifically, which implies some hideous sort of "Joey loves Dawson" scenario and completely creep me out, but, you know, we saw it, and... Well, give him the book!

    [Lucas open up the gift] 

    Lucas 'Luke' Scott : Wow. "Julius Caesar."

    Karen Roe : "There's a tide in the affairs of men", or something like that.

    Lucas 'Luke' Scott : Nice. Thank you, guys. Thank you very much.

    Haley James : Whatever. That's what you're into.

  • Lucas 'Luke' Scott : [to Peyton]  I'll be seeing you.

  • Lucas 'Luke' Scott : No foul, basket counts, besides you won't score again.

  • Lucas 'Luke' Scott : You ever have something that you knew that you were better at than... almost anybody else?

    Peyton : Sex... Joke.

  • Lucas 'Luke' Scott : Why are you a cheerleader? I mean, no offense or anything, but you're about the least cheery person I know.

    [gets into truck and comes out few minutes later after it seems like Nathan isn't coming to pick Peyton up] 

    Lucas 'Luke' Scott : Come on. Let me give you a ride. I'll let you insult me.

    Peyton : First of all, you don't know me. And second of all, you don't know me.

  • Haley James : The magazine pages are sticky again, little perv. Hey, Lucas! Have you been reading this?

    Lucas 'Luke' Scott : I don't know, Haley. Is that the "Why do I hang out with these people?" issue, because your on the cover of that, right?

    Haley James : Actually it's the "My best friend is an idiot" issue, and there you are.
