Haley says you saw him after the accident, now look at him. You know that saying the garbage is healing…it’s wrong. You know what’s better? Love.

Lucas says she’s giving her a chance. Brooke says yeah I guess so. Thank you for being here for us. Lucas says thank you for letting me.
Jamie is beating Skills playing video games. Lucas is in the kitchen with Naley. Lucas says it’s true. He spoke to the cardio dr. Lucas says it couldn’t have happened to a more deserving guy. Maybe that makes me the one with the bad heart but he says good riddance. Nathan doesn’t know what to think. Back to Skills and Jamie. Skills says why you only shoot 3’s. Jamie says because 3’s are bigger than 2’s!
Brooke and Millicent are at COBs. They are watching Mouth on tv. He’s having trouble reading the prompter and then he spills his water. He says this is sports and I’m, uh, wet. Brooke says at least it’s over. Millicent says no, he has two more. Brooke says she has time to drive her there.
Skills, Lucas, Nathan and Jamie are watching tape in the locker room. Skills says they should shoot all 3’s. It’s Jamie’s idea.
Lindsey is at her office. Peyton walks in and says we need to talk.
Lindsey says why are you here? Peyton says it’s weird but I’m here for you and Lucas. Lindsey says there’s nothing more to say. Peyton says I know he loves you and yes, he wrote about a comet but in his non-fiction life he seems very much in love with you. Lindsey says have you read the book? I didn’t think so because if you had you wouldn’t be questioning who he loved and how much. Peyton says it was a work of fiction and what wasn’t was he said I do to you. Lindsey gets the book and says it’s not me who has to make a decision about Lucas. It’s you. Go home, Peyton. Go home and read his book.
Q and Jamie are at the gym and Nathan is there. Nathan says keep shooting I’ll be back. And Quentin, you’re not quitting the Ravens. Jamie says you’re quitting the Ravens?? Q says I got hurt. J says my daddy got hurt too and sometimes it makes me sad. I’d give him anything to see him play again. I can see he wants to. Nathan runs into Dan. He gives him 5 minutes. Dan says I never told anyone this but I tried to kill myself in prison. When I slipped off that chair I took it as a sign my life wasn’t complete. I need to fix all of it. I need that peace before I die. Son, let me help you with what little time I have left. Nathan hears Jamie. Dan says Nathan, please. Son. Don’t deny a dying man his wish.
Mouth is ready to go on air. Millicent walks up. Mouth says I don’t know what happened. I got nervous. Millie says it’s ok. You know what you told me? Sports remind me of the greatness inside of us. On any day an underdog can rise up. You’re my underdog. Next time, just talk to me. Just look at me. I’ll be right behind the prompter. Mouth goes and starts and does great.
Brooke walks into the board meeting with Angie. They ask if she’s ready. She says I’m ready to go. I just need one second. She leaves with Angie crying.
Q goes into the office and talks to Skills. He says you must be looking for Lucas. He says no, I was looking for you. Q apologizes. He said things out of line. He was upset about his wrist and he didn’t think he had his back. Skills says we always have your back and you have to trust us and we’ll do whatever it takes to get you were you want. Q says ok. Skills says apology accepted as he walks out.
Brooke and Angie are outside talking. Brooke says it’s important and she has one shot. She says we’re going back in and giving the presentation. Are you with me?
Lucas is at practice and says Are you with me? And then gives instructions. He says meet your new point guard…Q walks in. They have a huddle and break.
A lady is holding Angie while Brooke gives her presentation. She says they’re unveiling Baby Brooke. It is hip and fun and edgy and every cute baby drools for it…or on it. Good huh? I know! She gets Angie and says come here, my angel. She leaves the board room.
They show Mouth doing great and he signs off. Millicent gives him a big smile.
Back to practice. They make a 3 pointer and Lucas stops them and says Nice! This might work after all. Q comes over to Nathan and says I just want to say thanks for believing in me. Nathan says just do your best. Q says I’ll make you a deal. You work hard too. For Jamie. For a comeback. Nathan says comebacks suck. Q says you saw something in me…maybe we can practice a few hours every week. Nathan agrees.
The guy at the tv studio congratulates Mouth. He walks off. He thanks Millicent. He says you wanna try? Come on! All you have to do is read off the teleprompter. Millicent reads it. It has lines in it from Mouth. It says Thank you for believing in me. I love you. Marvin. Millie is shocked. She says you love me? He says yes. Milicent says I love you too. They kiss.
Jamie is going to bed. Haley read his letter to Dan. Jamie reads it from memory. He says thank you and I wish you were at my birthday and I wish you’ll be at my next one and all the ones after that. Do you think he’ll like it? She says yes. I love you. She blows him a kiss goodnight.
Haley takes it into the kitchen to talk to Nathan. Nathan says I can’t believe he’s dying. As horrible as he’s been, I can’t imagine him going. Haley says if you need closure, I understand. Just be careful.
Lucas is writing on his computer. He says Lindsey’s name in the chat window.
Haley picks up the letter in the kitchen and just thinks. She is torn. She ends up throwing the letter away.
Dan fixes himself a drink and takes a sip. A knock at the door. It’s Nathan. He goes in. Nathan says I thought about what you said and you were right. I wouldn’t have gotten as far as I have without you. I’ve realized family is the most important thing. Nathan says not you, my family. I’m sorry you’re dying but you’re not part of it. Dan says that’s it? Nathan says you made the decision when you pulled that trigger. Dan smashes his mirror.
Lindsey has a message pop up on her computer. It’s a video invitation from Lucas. She declines it. Lucas is disappointed.
Peyton is at home in her bed reading the book. Lucas begins a voiceover…And his world would be whole again and his belief in God would be reawakened in his heart.
Brooke is at home talking to Angie. She says I know the surgery is scary but we’ll get through this together. I know I’m not your real mom but I could use a sign I’m doing ok. Angie finally smiles at her. Brooke cries and says ok, it’s you and me, baby.
