Haley and Nathan are sitting downtown on a bench. She says, "I know I'm driving you crazy." He says, "No you're not, and stop." Haley: "What do you think?" Nathan: "I think that you're my girlfriend and I like to spend time with you." Aw, and it only gets sweeter: "Look, I just don't want to push you." You're not. "But I am. Haley, you got a tattoo for god's sake. And it just freaks me out a little bit because obviously this whole thing with us means a lot to you." Pause. "I just don't want to do anything to pressure you or drive you away, even though sometimes that I can't help it." Here comes the hot chocolate: "Just like I can't help that I fell in love with you." And the whipped cream: "I love you, Haley." With some marshmallows: "And it scares me a little bit, but there it is." She takes a deep breath outward and repeats, "There it is." And that's the only aphrodisiac Haley needs. She gives him a wicked-ass smooch and tells him she loves him too. Aw.
Lucas decides to pay his father a visit, which is strange considering their relationship, but maybe all the events of the past couple days have brought them closer together. Or not. It's Dan. I know. I'm dreaming. Dan says cockily, "There's something I can help you with?" Luke replies, "Not really. I just wanted to thank you for filling in some of the blanks for me about when my mom got pregnant." Dan snarks, "Glad to be of help." Dan then asks how the situation is with Brooke. Luke answers by telling him it's none of his business. Dan snorts, "No?" Luke says, "You know, before this happened to me, I never quite understood how you could be so selfish. Every day of my life I wondered, until now." Dan gets up: "Now you see the other side." Luke: "Yeah, I guess I do." Dan: "Don't be so quick to judge me, Lucas. It's easy to have all the answers from a distance, but everybody makes decisions they regret. Me, your mother, Keith." Um, what does all this have to do with anything? What exactly does this conversation mean? So, Luke now understands just how much of a jackass Dan is because Brooke got pregnant. It's a light-bulb moment for us all -- Luke couldn't figure out his father before thinking his ex was pregnant; Dan couldn't explain to him how he truly felt. But not in one single place does Dan say that his mother made the right decision or that he's glad Luke's alive, and no parallel situation could turn the son into that much of an asshat. Dan: "But we learned to live with it; it's part of life." Luke: "Not my life, not yet." Dan: "Yeah, I thought that way once. Then I grew up." Luke smiles and then leaves. I guess that's closure?
