The game of reverse strip poker has just about ended. There's only one key left. Of course, it's the car key. Thing says, "Give us the car key, we'll give you the shirt." Nathan says, "I can live without my shirt." And just like that, he chucks the key deep into the woods. The Things watch it like a tennis ball at Wimbledon. Just before he and Luke run away, he says, "Have fun walking." Thing says to Thing 1 and 3, "Just find the key. I'm going to kill those guys."
Peyton and Haley walk slowly back to gas station. We're deep into Breakfast Club territory now. All the roles have been decided, popular girl, smart girl, pretty, stoned girl -- wait, was there one of those? Anyway. Now it's time for the bonding. Haley asks quietly, "What did you mean before, about Nathan, and you said be careful." Peyton replies, "I just know him, that's all." Haley: "As said the ex-girlfriend." Peyton: "Look, we were crazy with drama, but I'm over it. He's not a complete waste; he's just really threatened by Lucas. It could all just be a big mind game, that's how he works." She pauses for a second and then asks Haley, "Do you like him?" Haley stumbles around the question for a while: "We talk about stuff. You know what I mean." Like what? "School, homework, his dad." Peyton rolls her eyes: "Daddy sure did a number on his boy, right?" Haley says quietly, "Yeah, both of them." Peyton changes the subject: "So, you didn't answer my question, do you like him?" Haley says honestly, "It doesn't matter. It would be too weird around Lucas." Peyton answers just as truthfully, "That's his problem. You've got a life to live too." Haley: "It just seems so selfish." Peyton: "Why? Did he ask you if he could go out with me?"
