So today the very last episode of OTH airs in the US and I feel bittersweet. I’ve been waiting for this to happen for a few seasons now, but now that the time has finally come, I actually feel really sad.
I’m not gonna lie, I went through periods of basically hating the show, cursing the writers for stupid storylines but I carried on watching. I was absolutely gutted when LP left and basically promised that I wouldn’t watch the show ever again, but I got curious and secretly watched 7x01 and I was miserable that they weren’t there, but I still watched it and I surprisingly managed to like the new characters. Despite all the crap that our shipper hearts have been through and the somewhat poor storylines we’ve had to endure, the writers had moments of greatness where they reminded us why we love this show. I was only like 10 when the show first aired in 2003, so I was quite content with Drake & Josh, but I think I started watching it properly from when I was 12 or 13, and from the very first episode I watched, I was hooked. I went and caught up with all the seasons and have been watching it ever since. I’ve started watching a lot more shows since then, some of which I’ve recently found a lot more interesting than OTH, but for some reason I have never been attached to any other show or cast than this one.
I’m gonna be honest and say that this is the only show that can actually make me cry, sometimes I’m not sure why because other shows can be moving, but OTH pulls at my bloody heartstrings. And I will be forever grateful as it has let us recognise some of the most underrated actors and actresses and I will literally cry if they don’t go on to do brilliant things, especially James and Joy, I genuinely hope they do a lot more in the future! And my baby Austin <3
I do look forward to eventually owning all 9 seasons on DVD though, how fucking great will that be?!
I think Julian’s description of his new show in 9x12 sums up this show brilliantly; ‘A show that’s not afraid to be quiet or heartfelt, a show that’s romantic and sexy and makes you feel like you’re not alone.’
So, good night and thank you One Tree Hill.
Nathan: Every time I benched another ten pounds, I’d scratch two letters into the plate.
Peyton: What is it? PS?
Nathan: It was the same summer that we’d started dating. We were pretty good together, weren’t we?
Peyton: Gimme your hand, I want you to feel this [her knuckles].
Nathan: Jeez, what happened?
Peyton: I broke that knuckle, punching something after we’d broken up for like the twentieth time. We were horrible together.
Nathan: Yeah, I know, I was kinda of hoping you’d forgot.

One Tree Hill 4x21 - All Of A Sudden I Miss Everyone
Lydia: You’re taking good care of my daughter. I remember the day you came to ask our permission to marry her. You were so nervous, but I looked into your eyes and I just knew.
Nathan: What did you know?
Lydia: That you were going to change my daughter’s life, and I was right.
Nathan: You were responsible for raising the woman that changed my entire world, I’ll never forget that, Lydia, ever. Thank you for saying yes.

Episode Still from 8x01 - Asleep At Heaven’s Gate
Nathan: You know I didn’t do anything, right? I did not sleep with her, or do anything else.
Haley: You have your arm around her.
Nathan: I get asked to take a lot of pictures.
Haley: You have your arm around her at a party, with a beer and a smile.
Haley: I get it, Nathan, you got married in high school and you had a son at graduation and you didn’t have time to go out and party with your friends and drunken sluts with perfect teeth.
Nathan: I just took a picture with her, that’s all.
Haley: But it looks bad, Nathan, and she’s smart enough to know that. You should be too.

Nathan: As far as I’m concerned, Shaw was a punk. Cause you know what? Tragedies happen. What are you gonna do, give up? Quit? No. I realize now that when your heart breaks, you got to fight like hell to make sure your still alive. Because you are. And that pain you feel? That’s life. The confusion and fear? That’s there to remind you, that somewhere out there is something better, and that something is worth fighting for.
