Main Characters in this Episode
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Doesn't it always rain there?
Nathan Scott: Oh yeah... smiles.
Peyton Saywer: Brooke!
Brooke Davis: Why now, Peyton? Why would you tell me that you have feelings for Lucas now, when I have so much stuff going on in my life? Stuff that you don't even know about!
Peyton Saywer: Well, so do I. Okay, trust me. But, I didn't wish for this alright, I wished for Jake.
Brooke Davis: Oh, right. You wished for Jake. After you wished for Pete, and then Lucas! I cannot believe this is happening again.
Peyton Saywer: It's not okay, okay? It's not! The last time...
Brooke Davis: The last time! Do you hear yourself right now? The last time you tried to steal my boyfriend! He's on the door Peyton! He's on the damn door under me!
Peyton Saywer: I don't wanna steal him, okay?
Brooke Davis: But you like him.
Peyton Saywer: Brooke, I'm not gonna do anything about it. I'll just bury it. Okay?
Brooke Davis: You can't, okay! It's out, it's like the time capsule! And, you could have buried it and not said anything to me about it. So, what is that about?
Peyton Saywer: I don't - I just wanted to be honest with you, all right! I didn't wanna make the same mistake as I did last time. And, you even said last night at TRIC that you really didn't miss him.
Brooke Davis: Don't you dare! Don't you dare twist my words around to make yourself feel like you are not a back-stabbing two faced bitch, Peyton, because you are and you know it.
- Goof (continuity error): When the limo goes off the bridge, it lands upside down in the river. It's also upside down in the next season's premiere when it's hoisted out of the water by a crane. But it appears to be right-side-up in other shots when the inside is shown underwater. As the car is sinking, its unconscious passengers are shown sitting right-side-up. When Nathan swims in and gets trapped he is also right-side-up; the closed moon-roof is clearly visible above his head as he's yelling for help.
- The episode is named after a song by Queen.
