Haley starts to ask Nathan about his secret, but just then Dim comes along: "What's up, Nathan?" Nathan replies coolly, "What's up, guys?" Dim says, "What's this?" Nathan stutters, "You know Haley's my tutor, right?" Dim: "Looks more like a date to me?" And what would be wrong with that? If it was a date -- I mean, is Haley such a social pariah that Nathan's not allowed to have dinner with her? What's wrong with her? She's pretty, she's smart, and she's a hell of a lot more interesting than Dim. But Nathan succumbs to social pressures. He answers, "No, no, it's definitely not a date." Dim laughs, "Yeah, man, if that's your story." And suddenly, Haley transforms back into Molly Ringwald: "Are you that embarrassed to be seen with me?" And man, I'm going to have to brush up on my teen movies so I can bring the references into at least the '90s. Anyone have suggestions? "Are you embarrassed to go out with me?" Nathan tries to apologize. Haley asks, "Nathan? Why are you only nice to me when we're alone?" He doesn't have an answer, so she gets up and leaves: "You know, for a few hours there I was convinced you weren't a son of a bitch, but, hey, you fooled me again." Nathan swivels around in his chair and yells, "Haley, wait!" But he doesn't, like, get up or run after her or anything. Not much for the get-up-and-go in terms of keeping that relationship moving in the right direction, Nathan. And yet another night ends up with Haley crying.
The dawn starts to rise as Peyton comes around. Luke notices she's come to, and asks quietly, "Hey, how do you feel?" Peyton mumbles, "Like hell. What are you doing here?" Luke sits down on the bed: "You don't remember last night, huh?" Peyton says, "I remember Brooke took me to a party." Luke tells her that "a guy" slipped something into her drink. Peyton sits up and looks alarmed, as any girl would be, but Luke reassures her that nothing happened. That Brooke stopped Gabe before he actually did anything. Luke says, "I'm going to go wake her up." Peyton: "Wait." Pause. "Thanks." Pause. "Again." He gets up and says, "I just wanted to make sure you were all right." Peyton: "Lucas? I'm sorry." He sounds surprised when he says, "For what?" She answers, "All sorts of things." He nods and then leaves the room.
