Luke's at Jake's, telling him what's going on with Brooke. After hearing Luke's story off-screen, Jake says, "Damn!" Funny, that's what we all say when we see him. Heh. Right, I'm supposed to be serious because Luke's life is on the line, and Brooke's supposedly pregnant, and his whole world has come crashing down, and blah drama blah. Luke tells Jake that he didn't want to tell anybody. Jake says, "Well, neither did I, but I felt better after I did." Pause. "What does Brooke want to do?" Luke doesn't know, because she won't talk to him. Luke looks over at Jenny and feels his stomach churn. Then he pukes. All over the floor and the walls and the carpet and the couch. Okay, he doesn't, but I might if this crap continues. Jake: "What do you want her to do?" Luke: "How do I answer that?" Pause. "I'm just walking around like a zombie right now." Jake asks if Brooke thinks she's going to have it. Yes, she'll birth a phantom baby and all will be well in the Land of Nod. Jake continues, "You know, we talked about not keeping the baby." Luke replies, "Yeah, so did Dan and my mom." Luke sits down and mopes: "If she'd have listened to him, I wouldn't be standing here right now. How weird is that?" Jake: "Well, Luke, I don't want to lie to you, if Brooke has this kid, your whole life is going to change." Pause. "Where's your head at?" Luke tells Jake that he thinks they're not ready to be parents yet. Well, duh, they're sixteen, few sixteen-year-olds are, you know? Luke continues, "I can't even take care of myself. Plus, there's college, I mean, not just for me, but for Brooke too." He runs his hands over his straw-head and whines, "I'm beginning to freak out."
Oh, Nathan, there's using your good sense. Sell the hot wheels to pay for the hot pad. How much could he get for a 2004 Mustang? That's car's probably worth at least ten grand. At least! An apartment in Tree Hill can't cost that much. He'd be living off the proceeds of that sale for months, and it would piss Dan off to no end. Haley comes through the door. She notices he's selling the car and says, "Are you kidding?" He replies, "Got to sell the car to keep the apartment." What is his dad going to say? "He can say whatever he wants, it's still my car." Haley jokes that she could be his sugar momma, and kisses his neck. He pulls away. "What's wrong?" He says, "Nothing. You said you weren't ready and I'm trying to respect that." Haley: "What, we can't even kiss now?" Nathan: "No, I'm just trying to make you comfortable, and --" Haley: "I'm sorry, Nathan, this is so not fair to you." Nathan: "No, it's not fair to you, just don't apologize, okay." Blah he wants to, blah she doesn't, blah they both feel guilty blah adolescence blah. Nathan gets up and walks away, leaving Haley by herself on his brand-new couch.
And the montage music revs up.
