LUCAS: What are you doing Peyton?
PEYTON: Just pretending for a second that we're still seventeen and nothing's changed. Would you believe I actually met a girl that lives vicariously through us? At least us in the book.
LUCAS: Sure I do. It was a great story to be a part of but it also took place a long time ago.
PEYTON: I know. I didn't come here to rehash the past. I was reminded today in a roundabout way that the most perfect act of love is sacrifice. It's what Keith did for Karen; burying his feelings for her for all those years so he could be a good friend. (Grabs his hand). I love you Lucas. (Starts to tear up). And I think I have since the first moment we locked eyes and it is going to suck but if what you want is for me to let go then I'm gonna do it. Be happy Luke. I want that with all my heart. (Kisses his hand and walks away).
