"Suddenly, it was as if the roar of the crowd, the echo of the final buzzer, the cheers of my teammates were all sounding from a thousand miles away. And what remained in that bizarre, muffled silence was only Peyton, the girl whose art and passion and beauty had changed my life. At that moment, my triumph was not a state championship, but simple clarity. The realization that we had always been meant for each other and every instinct to the contrary had simply been a denial of the following truth. I was now, and would always be, in love with Peyton Sawyer."
— Lucas Scott, One Tree Hill
"The human life is made up of choices. Yes or no. In or out. Up or down. And then there are the choices that matter. Love or hate. To be a hero or to be a coward. To fight or to give in. To live. Or die. Live or die. That’s the important choice. And it’s not always in our hands."
Derek Shepherd, Grey’s Anatomy
Season 6, Episode 24 Death and all his friends
LUCAS: How can this be fate?
PEYTON: Maybe it is. Maybe the whole point of you and me, and every single moment that we’ve shared together, has just been leading us here. Maybe you and I are meant to create this life, because maybe this life is gonna change the world!
LUCAS: I can’t accept, that our story doesn’t have a good ending.
PEYTON: Our story already has the greatest ending, no matter what. Because we’re together.
