8.17 The Smoker You Drink, The Player You Get Roundtable

Posted by Amanda with 3 Comments

1) Favorite Quote of the Episode?

LizzyB: There were a few goodies (i.e. Kellerman calling Facebook the “face page”) but Quinn has been super fun and funny to me lately and I thoroughly enjoyed her toaster strudel song!

Amanda: Yes!! Quinn’s toaster strudel song for me too! Cute :)

2) Who had the funniest labor test run?

LizzyB: I have to say Quinn. Putting Haley in the trunk of Clay’s car…classic!

Amanda: Same here too. I loved Haley being put into the trunk of the car. so cute. ( I must note – Seeing Julian pass out was also funny though)

Amy: I liked Brooke and her freaking out about her car seats.

3) More confusing: The guys’ conversation about cell phones or Alex and Chase’s relationship?

LizzyB: The cell phone conversation. I expect all guy-girl relationships to be confusing because of the whole Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus thing…

Amanda: I don’t think I found either confusing. I loved the guys convo abou cell phones. They were guys being guys and I laughed. Alex and Chase are being Alex and Chase.

Amy: Alex and Chase’s relationship.  I loved the cell phone conversation!

4) Does anyone notice that Alex Dupre is famous anymore?

LizzyB: Right? She just hangs around One Tree Hill without sunglasses or a wig and nobody seems to care. Weird!

Amanda: Right? What happened?

Amy: Agreed!  But maybe it’s like some of the OTH people in Wilmington…locals just let them be.

5) Do you like Millie as a reporter or should Mouth have the job?

LizzyB: Honestly, Millie was so cute on TV in her chicken suit but that commentary was 100% Mouth’s. They should be a Regis and Kelly!

Amanda: Millie is great but I think it deserves to go to Mouth. What happens when she is stuck without him?

Amy: I really miss Mouth as a reporter but I think Millie did GREAT.

Bonus Question: Ian is responsible for nearly killing Brooke and Jaime on the bridge–did you see that coming? What will Nathan do now that he knows?

LizzyB: From reading spoilers, I did know it was coming :( Nathan is totally going to go ape sh*t on his a$$, a la Dante Season 4.

Amanda: Well I kind of knew it was coming too. I’d like to see Nathan get all protective!

Amy: I did NOT know it was coming and I just KNEW Ian was trouble!  I hope he reports him ASAP.

8.15 Valentine’s Day is Over Roundtable

Posted by Amanda with 5 Comments

Favorite quote of the episode?

LizzyB: Chuck’s “My dad says real men drink whisky.” I love me some whisky!!

Favorite Brulian sex game?

LizzyB: I liked the plumber one..mainly because Julian’s attempt at some kind of weird plumber accent was hilarious!

Amanda: The plumber because I didn’t really like any of the others.

Amy: The plumber!

Best Valentine’s Day surprise?

LizzyB: Chuck’s love of show tunes..who knew! And his singing was so cute!

Amanda: Haley’s face when Nathan hands her a card and a rose and goes to hop in the shower. I died laughing. I thought that was cute after she had been snooping all day. (I know it was not a “big” surprise but it was a surprise to her)

Amy: I can’t believe I’m saying this but Clay and Quinn with TRIC.

Thoughts on Ian Kellerman?

LizzyB: Exact thoughts = It’s weird that he’s calling Nate and Clay old when he looks older than them!!!

Amanda: I don’t have any yet. Although he was pretty arrogant!

Amy: Pretty much hate him so far.

More gross: Creepy pizza delivery guy or Nathan trimming his nose hairs?

LizzyB: Are you kidding? I NEVER want to see Nathan with that contraption in his hand again. I want to keep believing that Nathan just wakes up in his hot nose-hairless state!

Amanda: I laughed at the pizza guy so I guess I have to go with Nathan.

Amy: Nose hairs!

Bonus Question: Which Tree Hill character would you want as your Valentine?

LizzyB: Jaime! I’m a simpleton so a home-made card, heart shoelaces and skee-ball seems like the perfect V-day to me!

Amanda: I loved Jamie too. Skee-ball is my favorite arcade game but Nathan comes in close behind him!!

Amy: Mouth :)

8.12 The Drinks We Drank Last Night Roundtable

Posted by Amanda with 9 Comments

1) Favorite quote of the episode?

LizzyB: There was some great stuff last night but I’m going with Sylvia’s, “It’s like I did shots of fire!!”

Amanda: I know there was LOTS of funny in this episode but this line stuck with me. Call me a sucker but i loved this line that Alex tells Quinn riding in the car… Own it. My scars are from a moment of weakness. Your scars are proof of your strength. ”

Amy: Haley: It’s like an X-rated version of Where’s Waldo

2) What was your biggest OMG moment of the girls’ wild night out?

LizzyB: I think for me it was when they all got into an ice cream truck. WTF! Where did that come from? It was never explained either and I bet that was a funny story!

Amanda: Yeah I am going to go with Lizzy on this. Where did the ice cream truck come from and no it was never explained. What the…..? :)

Amy: Oh where to begin?  The boot was pretty insane.  That is a LOT to drink.

3) Which one of the girls would you want at your bachelorette party?

LizzyB: I’m gonna have to go with Millie, I mean Boots, on this one…the girl’s a freeeak and I love it!

Amanda: Alex, she’s so full of spunk

Amy: Um, Alex.  Hello, spa!

4) Did your thoughts about any of the girls change after seeing their drunk, crazy sides?

LizzyB: Please see above! Also, I was pretty surprised at how much I enjoyed Quinn–she was really funny!!

Amanda: Millie, I am with Lizzie she is pretty nuts :) It was fun to watch. “Boots” I loved her nickname.

Amy: Yes, LizzyB, Quinn was not nearly as annoying ;)

5) Did you miss the boys?

LizzyB: You mean shirtless Julian wasn’t in every scene? Guess that was just my imagination…thanks Mark! :)

Amanda: Nope

Amy: I did kind of miss Mouth and I can always use more Nathan.

6) Thoughts on how the Peyton/wedding situation was handled?

LizzyB: I like that it was an actual issue and not just a quick mention. I also very much liked the speech that Brooke gave to Haley about her being there during the toughest year of her life and making her the maid-of-honor…IMO, Hales deserved to be it whether or not Peyton came for the wedding…just sayin!

Amanda: The certainly addressed the situation and I am really glad that Haley will be the maid of honor. I will leave it at that.

Amy: I already gave some opinion in my review of the episode but in summary, I think it’s a big stretch but as a mom that had two sick kids last week, I’m biting.

Bonus Question: In the preview for next week, who is having dirty wedding sex in the limo??

LizzyB: Ok, I rewound and paused this like a million times and I really think it’s Chase and Alex. Couldn’t convince my cousin that it was Alex though so there’s still some doubt in my mind about it…

Amamda: I am thinking Alex and Chase. (that is who i would like it to be)

Amy: I thought Alex and Chase too.

8.11 Darkness on the Edge of Town Roundtable

Posted by Amanda with 7 Comments

1) Favorite quote of the episode?

LizzyB: Definitely Brooke’s “I love you” right before her head went beneath the water. Quinn’s “I’m your storm” was a close second.

Amanda: Brooke when she is saying “he’s just a boy” Something about how she says those lines…

2) Whose storyline was scarier: Brooke, Jamie and Julian’s or Quinn’s?

LizzyB: I have to go with the former because there was a child involved. The whole thing gave me chills.

Amanda: The first. Children involved and then being stuck in water. Panic!

3) Was this the most intense OTH car accident to date?

LizzyB: I have to say yes because they spent the whole episode on it. Though, for me, no one part beats the look on Nathan and Haley’s faces right before Nate dove into the water to save Cooper and Rachel in Season 3.

Amanda: I am going to agree with Lizzy.

4) Did you think anyone was going to die? If so, who?

LizzyB: Not going to lie…I knew Brooke wasn’t dying but, for a hot second, I wasn’t sure about Lauren and I actually thought that about Quinn when I saw her legs in the pool.

Amanda: Ok I knew as well about Brooke  too but when Quinn was laying in the pool I thought for a second. Oh no!

5) Who was your favorite hero of the night?

LizzyB: Brooke and Quinn were definitely bad ass but my heart broke for Julian with every scene, from him jumping in the river to save Brooke and Jamie, to him screaming under water when he saw Brooke was unconscious to him yelling at Brooke to wake up while performing CPR. Mad props to Austin last night, he was awesome and totally had me crying…even though I knew there was no way Brooke was dying.

Amanda: Julian certainly won my heart with his parts but I also really enjoyed watching Brooke. She was strong and resourceful and these were things I felt she has been lacking in the last few episodes due to the loss of her company so I liked watching her kick in to gear and be a hero.

6) Has Tree Hill seen its last psycho killer?

LizzyB: HA! Not even if this really is the last season!!!

Amanda: See above answer

Bonus Question: What are your hopes for the second half of the season?

LizzyB: More Naley awesomeness and more Skillz. And no more crazy Katie please!

Amanda: If this is the last season then I hope to see some closure for all and happiness too :) (i know it sounds a little cheesy)

8.10 Lists, Plans Roundtable

Posted by Amanda with 6 Comments

1) Favorite quote of the episode?

LizzyB: It’s really not a quote but I LMAO’d when Nathan did the banana fo fana song with “Chuck” in his head and the light bulb finally went on.

Amanda: I liked Lizzy’s quote above (I laughed a lot) and I also liked Nathan saying “My teacher was mean to me today. Promise me you will stay away from anyone with keller in their name.” ha i laughed a little

2) On a scale of 1 to 10, how awesome was Brooke’s “nightmare” wedding?

LizzyB: Are you kidding? Nathan in that outfit..Haley shooting a bird..Jaime drinking a beer…totally an 11!!!

Amanda: I am giving it an 11 too. Totally Fantastic, I loved it all.

3) What’d you think of the return of Dan Scott?

LizzyB: I loooved it! Oh how I miss that guy and his completely unorthodox way of doing the right thing!

Amanda: I missed Dan too and agree with Lizzy above.

4) Who was cuter–Brulian or Namie (Nathan and Jamie)?

LizzyB: Ughh damn it! They were both so sweet I swore I was going to have a million cavities when the episode was over. I guess if I have to choose, I’d go with Nathan and Jamie…I’m a sucker for father-son bonding!

Amanda: Nathan and Jamie 100%. I loved seeing them together!! They were so cute studying together :)

5) Alex, Mia, or just over the whole thing?

LizzyB: Still going with Alex. She knows what she wants and goes after it and, while I hated that about her with Julian last year, I absolutely love it about her this year with Chase!

Amanda: When the show ended I was thinking about this. It seems as though Alex has grown on me a little  since joining the show cause if I had to choose I would choose her to be with Chase.  I like her fiestyness. Sorry guys.

Bonus Question: Thoughts on the ending?

LizzyB: My exact words–“What the f—! That b*tch is crazy!”

Amanda: WOW!…

8.09 Between Raising Hell and Amazing Grace Roundtable

Posted by Amanda with 6 Comments

1) Favorite Quote of the episode?

LizzyB: “Dude I am talking about Sylvia…Delicious.” Man, did I miss Skillz!!

Amanda: “I don’t get it. Haley’s cooking for a small army and it looks like a butterball commercial.” I thought there were plots of cute little quotes in this episode. this being one of them :)

Amy: I do not know why this hit my funny bone like it did because on its own its not that funny but when Nathan gets up from the table and says “I’m thankful my wife needs help in the kitchen” it cracked me up.

2) Funniest moment of the episode?

LizzyB: I was going to give it to Brooke when she kept reaching for the carving knife…but then Chase starting acting like a turkey and, well, sorry Brooke but that wins out for me!

Amanda: I am going with Lizzy Chase gobbling like a turkey all by himself had me laughing so hard especially since he had been there so looong!! My other funny moment was at the dinner table when Haley said she had more wine in kitchen and Nathan said he was thankful that his wife needed help and Julian said “Please don’t go!

Amy: Chase completely owned the scenes at the bar.  I’m usually annoyed by one-off sub-plots like these in an episode but somehow Stephen pulled it off and him gobbling like a turkey was gold.

3) Was Thanksgiving football scene the best sports scene on One Tree Hill ever?

LizzyB: Though I loooved when Alex clotheslined Mia (and may I say OUCH!), there are a few old-school Raven basketball scenes that still top the list!

Amanda: I am with Lizzy again here!!

Amy: Sorry, not by far.

4) Bigger WTF moment: Victoria is out of prison so soon or Nathan didn’t graduate college?

LizzyB: It does seem like quite the short sentence term that Victoria served but I’ll let that slide because I love her. Seriously though, Nathan didn’t finish college??? When did that happen?! Definitely a WTF moment!

Amanda: I don’t know here. Nathan not finishing college? How did I not already know this?

Amy: I was really shocked by Nathan not finishing college so much so I was questioning if I had missed such huge news.

5) Best “I’m thankful for” of the night?

LizzyB: Gotta give it to Haley’s “I’m thankful I got to see you chug wine out of the bottle.” I totally was thankful to see someone else do that besides me…

Amanda: I give it to Haley for the couple speeches she gave!

Amy: Yep, Haley put them all in their place and gave the episode some much needed heart.  Although Nathan’s still made me crack up.

Bonus Question: What is Quinn planning with those creepy stalker pics of Katie?

LizzyB: I have no idea! I’m still trying to figure out why she hasn’t gone to the police if she knows where Katie is! Oh, right, where would the fun be in that?!

Amanda: I would like to know too and man did she look creepy developing them!

Amy: Quinn’s gone off the deep end!  Whew.  I seriously thought she was going to develop a picture of her and another guy in Africa.  Darnit.  Back to Crazy Katie.

8.08 Mouthful Of Diamonds Roundtable

Posted by Amanda with 12 Comments

1) Favorite quote of the episode?

LizzyB: “Suck it soup!” This is exactly why I started buying soup in non-can forms.

Amanda: Yes I hate to be the same but I like Clay’s “Suck it soup!” I was laughing and had to back up the dvr to catch what I missed.

Amy: I think mine might be off the wall, but I loved this one by Erin: Truth is always worth hearing.”

2) Most intriguing person in Julian’s documentary?

LizzyB: I feel like Nathan would be the most interesting for the public because of his fame but I find Mouth’s story to be the most interesting to me because he’s just a normal person with an average job trying to figure out what he’s going to do with the rest of his life.

Amanda: I am going to say Nathan. His story is so many different sides. Family, Fame, Career…

Amy: Intriguing? I would say Brooke.  What’s next is a huge question for her and I’m really interested to see where this goes.

3) Better bonding scene: Haley and Jaime talking about braces or Brooke and Sylvia making up after their nasty fight?

LizzyB: Haley’s like the best mom ever but I started tearing up when Brooke and Sylvia buried the hatchet.

Amanda: I favor Brooke and Sylvia. Sylvia comments about Brooke being a strong woman :)

Amy: I loved Haley and Jamie.  I love laughing with my kids like that.

4) What do you think Brooke will do next?

LizzyB: Start a new line of clothing for incarcerated women called “Clothes4PrisonHoes” in honor of her mother.

Amanda: Ok please don’t hate: I don’t know what she is going to do but she needs to hurry up and do it. I am tired of her moping around. She is a strong woman so get up and do something!!

Amy: I agree, Amanda, I’m ready for her to move on.  She needs to be inspired to start something new.  No reason she can’t do something as great as COB all over again.

5) Stronger bromance: Nate and Clay or Mouth and Chase?

LizzyB: Are you kidding? Julian and Jaime!!!!

Amanda: Totally going with Lizzy! Julian and Jamie

Amy: I really liked the scenes between Mouth and Chase this week.

Bonus Question: What professional athlete would you like to see show up on OTH now that Nathan is an agent?

LizzyB: My favorite Yankee Jorge Posada or Eli Manning…clearly my Jersey-ness has me biased!

Amanda: Well I am not a huge sports follower so I called my best friend on this one who watches OTH with me every week and she gave me these guys… Ladainian Tomlinson or David Beckham?

Amy: Oh boy, you do NOT want me to answer this question.  I am sports-challenged and CLUELESS.

8.06 Not Afraid Roundtable

Posted by Amanda with 6 Comments

1) Favorite quote of the episode?

LizzyB: Tie between Julian’s, “You want me to go as Flava Flav?” and Chuck’s, “Don’t hate, that’s how I roll!” because that’s totally something I would say!

Amy: Hands down, “You want me to go as Flava Flav?”

Amanda: I gotta go with the two above : “You want me to go as Flava Flav?” :)

2) Best costume?

LizzyB: There were some goodies but my love for Harry Potter prevails–Jaime was so darn cute with his glasses and lightning scar!

Amanda: I loved Brooke as an orange with her arms sticking out. So cute.

Amy: I have to give major props to Mia.  Wowsers!

3) Initial thoughts on Julian’s mom?

LizzyB: Bitchtoria 2.0…Brooke and Julian together have more mommy issues than Peyton!

Amanda: Same thoughts as Lizzy above

Amy: My initial thoughts were she was really nice but by the end of the episode it was quite clear she was going to play a selfish mother-in-law.

4) Chase bartending jokes–still funny or getting old?

LizzyB: I still think they’re funny. But, then again, I have been known to beat a dead horse :\

Amanda: I like them.

Amy: Jokes themselves are pretty funny.  Just wish he’d find something else to do around Tree Hill.  I think Stephen is sorely underutilized.

5) Did you see that coming with the singer being Erin from the crisis hotline?

LizzyB: I absolutely did not. Good twist!

Amanda: As a matter a fact I did. Pretty cool.

Amy: As soon as I heard that she sang well and Haley perked up, I figured it out.  I liked it though.

Bonus Question: Give the episode an overall rating from 1 to 10.

LizzyB: There wasn’t much plot development but I’ve always enjoyed OTH episodes like this that take a break from all the drama and focus more on fun. I give it a 7.

Amanda: I really enjoyed the episode. I give it an 8.

Amy: 7.

8.04 We All Fall Down Roundtable

Posted by Amanda with 9 Comments

Hi Guys. I know I am super late getting this up it has been a very busy week for me. I hope all enjoyed this past weeks episode and are getting ready for a new one on Tuesday!
– Amanda

1) Favorite quote of the episode?

LizzyB: Victoria’s “She’s better than that Calliopy, and everyone in here needs their own bitch.” Man, I love her! Close second…Nathan telling Clay, “I was thinking you were going to die..and that was completely unacceptable to me.” Nathan has sooo been my favorite character lately!

Amanda: I have to go with Lizzy on this one on all accounts. I was laughing so hard when Victoria spout out her quote! And I have loved many of Nathans lines over the past few episodes. ahhh!

Amy: I have to be honest.  Quotes were weak for me this week.  None are standing out to me.

2) Do you agree with Brooke’s decision to sell C/B and liquidate her personal assets to pay back all her investors?

LizzyB: I admire her for wanting to do right by them but I can’t help but think that Victoria has a good point about these people making the choice to gamble with their money. Why would you take that risk with your child’s college fund? If I was that man’s daughter, I would blame him before Brooke.

Amanda: I also admire her for what she is wanting to do. I felt it was just a little extreme. Maybe I don’t understand the business world but I keep feeling like there has to be other options. I am sort of in the middle agreeing with Brooke and with her mom.

Amy: Yes.  COB has always been personal to Brooke and I don’t think she could live with herself otherwise.

3) What’s next for Nathan now that he’s retiring from basketball?

LizzyB: I guess it’s back to Hot and Twisted for him!

Amanda: I don’t know

Amy: Back at THH?

4) What should Julian do with his video?

LizzyB: I totally saw the next Nike commercial when Julian was replaying his footage at the end of the episode!

Amanda: Yes I thought the same thing – commercial. (side note) I really like how it started off and then ended with the video and Nathan’s decision. How he put the ball down and walked away.

Amy:  Wow, I have no clue.

5) Less realistic: Alex’s golf drive that inevitably won her the bet or Nathan scrubbing bloody carpets in the dark?

LizzyB: Though I thought it was weird that Nathan was cleaning in the dark, I guess I wouldn’t really want to see all that yucky blood either so I can maybe let that slide. Alex’s shot on the other hand was just ludicrous. Where did that table come from? This isn’t Happy Gilmore!!!

Amanda: I am with Lizzy. First thought: why not hire a professional to come clean up the mess in the beach house but… ok it’s cool you go do it in the dark, I can deal with that. Alex with that last shot – NOT. I just laughed and moved on.

Amy: Nathan scrubbing bloody carpets.  Realistically, what guy is going to do that for his friend?  I know Nathan’s come a long way, but that’s a little much for me.  HOWEVER, I liked that he did that for him.

Bonus Question: Do you want the “Dear Lucas” at the beginning to continue?

LizzyB: I like Haley’s monologues and I think it’s nice that they are incorporting Lucas even though he’s not around anymore so, yes, keep them coming.

Amanda: I really really like Haley’s monologues and I really like that she writes them to Lucas. I hope they stay around too!

Amy: Yes!  I haven’t gotten tired of them yet.  How about her reading a letter FROM Lucas though?

8.03 The Space in Between Roundtable

Posted by Amanda with 12 Comments

1) Favorite quote of the episode?

LizzyB: Nathan: I am not strong enough for this.
Haley: Yes, you are and when you are not, you have me.


Amanda: Nathan talking about donating his kidney says: The only thing I do know for sure is that if I do this for Clay it could save his life.
Haley: I love you, I love the person you are, and your strength.
Nathan: Where do you think I learned it from?

Amy: Yes, Amanda, I’m with you!  I loved that Naley convo!!

2) Would you listen to Mouth’s podcasts?

LizzyB: Well, I love sports and I love movies about sports so yes definitely!

Amanda: Yes cause it is Mouth :)

Amy: I’m not a sports fan and would be clueless but my love of Mouth overrides it, so YES!

3) Are you happy Victoria took responsibility for the Clothes Over Bro’s debacle?

LizzyB: I was sad to see her go to prison but glad she owned up to her mistakes. Let’s hope her incarceration is about as long as Lindsay Lohan’s.

Amanda: I am very glad she took responsibility.  Another favorite quote of mine from last night was – Brooke: It’s prison Mother! How could you do this? Victoria: Because you are my daughter and I love you. Brooke: I don’t want you to go. Victoria: Well it is my fault.

Amy: LOL, LizzyB!  Yes, I’m glad she took ownership but I do hope her visit is short.

4) Thoughts on Shantel’s performance last night?

LizzyB: I haven’t always been a fan of hers when it comes to serious scenes but I really felt for Quinn last night. Her face when Clay spoke almost brought me to tears…almost!

Amanda: I thought she did wonderful. I agree with Lizzy!

Amy: Yes, I’m with you again LizzyB.  I felt like Shantel really owned those scenes.

5) Are you glad this Clay/Quinn semi-ghost storyline is finally over?

LizzyB: I didn’t mind it but, yes, glad it’s over and we can move on!

Amanda: I am indifferent. I really liked how the ghost thing was done. I am also really glad to have them both awake so that we can see story lines move on.

Amy: You know, I was kind of liking the ghost thing.  It reminded me of the movie Ghost and I thought it was  a cool new way for Clay to interact with them.  Too bad we didn’t solve any great mysteries while he could be a fly on the wall.  Now that would have been cool!

Bonus Question: What did you think of this week’s rendition of “I Don’t Wanna Be?”

LizzyB: Hated it…it scared my little kitten lol

Amanda: It didn’t bother me. It was certainly more upbeat.

Amy: Don’t shoot me but I liked it better than Kate’s.  Still can’t touch Gavin’s though.
