It's the first game of the season and it's Mouth's big chance to impress with his coverage of the game. Meanwhile, Haley, Brooke, Peyton, Lindsey and Mia get locked in the Tree Hill High library and a lot gets said particularly between Lindsey and Peyton. Elsewhere, Nathan and Lucas endeavor to tell both Haley and Lindsey about their indiscretions.
Tree Hill prepares for its new generation of Ravens to kick off the season. Before the first game, the Scott brothers can only discuss the future, and whether Nathan should tell Haley about Carrie, who has quit 'to finish her studies' after kissing him. The girls get locked in by a faulty door in the high school library. Their best hope at escape is the pizza delivery boy- an old acquaintance, Tim, once Nathan's inseparable greatest fan. Mouth feels nostalgic enough to turn his first coverage from classical sports focus to 'the real story' about fathers and sons.
- Lucas proposed to Lindsay and she says yes, however Lucas admits that he is still in love with Peyton. Lucas, Skillz and Nathan coach a basketball game while. Peyton, Brooke, Haley, Lindsay and Mia are stuck in a library. They share their problems and what has been bugging them. Peyton finds out the ring Lindsay has is the same ring Lucas proposed to Peyton with and the same ring as Keith proposed to Karen. Tim comes to the rescue.
