“I wanted you to say that there was no one else that you could ever be with and that you’d rather be alone than without me.”
Brooke Davis: How about how you show it? I am not pushing you away, Lucas, I am holding on for dear life. But I need you to need me back, okay? Why didn’t you tell me about the kiss? And why didn’t you call me while you were away? And why won’t you ever just let me all the way in? We have to go give our speeches now about love.
Lucas Scott: Please don’t be mad, Brooke.
Brooke Davis: I’m not mad, Luke. I’m not mad.
”I’m so hyper sensitive to people because it’s my job to interact and react. If anything comes into play that is in any way strange to me, I’m so sensitive to it. I think that is something in general for actors, that people don’t get how sensitive we are. They think that we have such thick skin and that nothing gets to us or that we can laugh at everything. That’s sort of the reality of a comedian; we laugh a lot so that we won’t cry.”
