Okay. Dan's watching game tapes. Which someone has obviously taped. But he didn't have a camera. Tweedledum and Stinky didn't have a camera. Who had the camera? Not Keith. Not Haley. Not anyone that I could see. The Ravens have their own personal videographer? Dan pauses for a second on Lucas. A glimmer of regret, perhaps? No way; this man's colder than ice in Nunavut in the heart of winter. He fast-forwards past the "bastard spawn" to the "golden boy." As Nathan walks through the front door, Dan says, "Nathan! Look at this, what did you do there?" Nathan says he was double-teamed, so he found the open man. "Wrong! You gave up a scoring opportunity at the post." Nathan protests, blah double-teamed blah. Blah he scored twenty-eight points blah. Dan: "Thirty points would have looked better to the scouts, don't you think?" He dismisses his son: "Go to sleep. You looked winded in the fourth quarter, we'll go for a run in the morning." Man, this guy's got some serious issues. Nathan mutters on the way out, "You wonder why mom extends those business trips."
Luke stops the truck in front of Peyton's house. She says, "Do you mind if I ask you a question?" He says "shoot," with no hint of irony. "Why'd you do it, join the team? 'Cause you don't exactly fit in here, do you?" Luke replies thoughtfully that it's because he loves the game. She doesn't buy it. He says, "Because I want to know if I'm good." Now, at least someone around here is being honest. Peyton: "If you ask me, we all just wasted a perfectly good evening. You, me and everybody else in there." Why does she do it? Does she really like it or not? Peyton: "If I say that I like it, then I'm just another cheerleader, but if I say that I hate it, I'm either a liar or a fraud. Either way, I lose." Oh. The. Pressures. Of. Teenage. Life. Yawn. She grabs her stuff and gets out of the car: "Do you wanna come in?" Luke: "What about Nathan?" Peyton: "What about him?" He gets out of the car after thinking about it for a millisecond, and follows Peyton to her door. She turns around as he reaches the steps: "What are you doing?" He's confused. She continues, "I didn't invite you to come in, I just asked if you wanted to. Thanks for the ride." Cheeky duck. Those buggers -- this scene was contrived so that they could cut a promo where she asks Luke in, even though she's Nathan's girlfriend. She leaves Luke's smouldering stare in the dark as off goes the porch light and click goes the lock in the door.
