Jamie: You know, I do believe in magic… I was born and raised in a magic time… in a magic town… among magicians… Most everybody else didn’t realize we lived in that web of magic, connected by the silver filaments of chance and circumstance, but I knew it all along. See? This is my opinion; we all start out knowing magic. We are born with whirlwinds, forest fires, and comets inside of us. We are born able to sing to birds and read clouds, and see our destiny in grains of sand…but then we get the magic educated right out of our souls. We get it churched out, washed out, spanked out, and combed out. We get put on the straight and narrow and told to be responsible. Told to act our age. And you know why we were told that? Because the people doing the telling were afraid of our wildness and youth, and because the magic we knew made them ashamed and sad of what they’d allowed to wither in themselves. After you go so far away from it, you can’t really get it back. You can have seconds of it, just seconds of knowing and remembering…
Alex: When people get weepy in movies, it’s because in that dark theater, the golden pool of magic is touched, just briefly…
Mouth: Then they come out into the hard sun of logic and reason again, and it dries up, and they’re left feeling a little heart sad, and not knowing why…
Haley: When a song stirs a memory…
Quinn: when motes of dust turning in a shaft of light takes your attention from the world…
Dan: When you listen to a train passing on a track at night in the distance, and you wonder where it might be going…
Brooke: You step beyond who you are and where you are…
Jamie: For the briefest of instance, you have stepped into the magic realm. That’s what I believe.

She just changed her mind, Brooke. She didn’t want to do it alone, and then she wasn’t alone. She held her in her arms,and she just couldn’t go through with it.

Julian: Brooke, before I met you I thought my world had everything I needed to be happy. I had nothing else to compare it to, then you walked into my life and everything changed. I realized how empty my world was without you in it, and my old life was no longer capable of making me happy… not without you. I love everything about you, Brooke. I love the way you challenged me like no one ever has. I love the way you look at me like no one ever has, and I love the way you love me like no one ever has. I can’t imagine spending my life without you, and if you say “yes” to me in a few minutes, I won’t have to. You look beautiful by the way.
Brooke: Julian, before I met you my world revolved around one thing… me. And I liked it that way on my own, but then I met you and you saw through the facade. You saw me. You’ve taught me to trust, how to let someone in, and what it truly means to fall in love. I can’t possibly describe how much I love you, so I’ll tell you why I love you. You see the world in a way that no one else does and you appreciate everything, including me. There’s no one in the world like you, and if you say “yes” in a few minutes, I’ll get to spend the rest of my life trying to see the world through your eyes, appreciating everything, including you… the most unique, wonderful, and terribly handsome man I have ever met.

Brooke: Listen to me… unless you want your baby to be born with a dent in its head the size of my fist, you had better start agreeing with me.
Haley: Hear that, baby? That’s auntie Brooke’s way of saying she can’t wait to meet you. Hmm!

Chase: Have you ever high-fived Julian?
Nathan: What kind of question is that?… No. No, I’ve never high-fived Julian. Why have you guys high-fived him?
Mouth: I was the first. It happened the other day, and based on my experience I told Chase he should instigate one as well.
Chase: And I did.
Nathan: Am I missing something?
Chase: You gotta do it, Nathan.
Nathan: Dude, that is an awesome dog costume. High-five.
Julian: Right on!

Dear Lucas, every time I write that it sounds strange. How did our lives drift so far apart? And how without even trying did we make our lives so complicated? I guess what I mean to say is, it all seemed so much easier when we faced the future together.

Hi Luke, Nathan left for camp today and the house is pretty quiet.. Should be more time for me to write. I’ve been feeling better lately but I still think about my mom a lot. I still feel her sometimes, hear her voice, see her smile, truth is that I miss her and I miss Peyton and Keith and Karen and Nathan while he’s gone but it helps to have Quinn closer. Truth is when it gets really quiet and the silence gets really loud and I really start to miss everyone I tell myself I can’t see you but I know you’re there.
