* FreezeFrameBonus: In episode 3x06, Brooke makes a list of potential draft picks in the Fantasy Boy Draft she had organised amongst the cheerleaders. Pausing the episode when Peyton looks at the list actually gives full names for several of the Tree Hill Ravens, which are otherwise never mentioned anywhere else in the series.

* FreezeFrameBonus: In episode 3x06, Brooke makes a list of potential draft picks in the Fantasy Boy Draft she had organised amongst the cheerleaders. Pausing the episode when Peyton looks at the list actually gives full names for several of the Tree Hill Ravens, which Ravens; and when Brooke is typing up the finalised draft roster in the closing moments of the episode, the viewer is also able to learn the first names of the members of the cheerleaders who hadn't been named previously. The majority of the names are otherwise never mentioned anywhere else in the series.



** At the start of the show, Dan really doesn't care what Nathan does - so long as he stays healthy & elligible to play for the Ravens. It's realising this that drives Deb to start trying to avert this trope.



** Brooke went through this in the first four seasons. Her parents were implied to be unhappily married and had never really wanted her, so they gave her their credit cards and pretty much never saw her. Her mother, Victoria, finally shows up in Season 5 and onwards, and although she is an ''extremely'' crappy mother at first, she and Brooke gradually make up in Season 6. As of Season 7, she and Brooke are close. Sophia Bush said on a Season 5 DVD extra that she was excited when Daphne Zuniga joined the cast as Victoria, because she "finally had a grown-up to work with now!" (Brooke was the only one of the five whose parents hadn't been shown at least once.)
* HappilyAdopted: In Season 3, it is revealed that [[spoiler: Peyton]] is adopted. At first, [[spoiler: she's upset her dad never told her, but he insists it was for the best. She later learns that both her parents were deep into sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll at the time they had her. She grows close to her birth mom, who eventually dies, just as her adoptive mom did. When she meets her birth dad, she's excited to learn he's a famous guitarist, only to discover he's an alcoholic, and she thanks him for giving her up and then calls her adoptive dad to thank him]].

** Brooke during Season 4 - she has an affair with a teacher, and steals an exam with Rachel but receives absolutely no punishment for either offence whilst the other people involved do. It goes so far that Haley is fired from the Tutor Centre over the stolen exam (Her keys to the cabinet holding the exams were used) despite no involvement with the actual theft, whilst Brooke is completely absolved of her involvment when she finally comes clean a day before graduation.

* ComicBookTime: Seasons 1 through 4 cover the group's junior & senior years, with Haley being pregnant for the majority of the fourth season, as is [[spoiler:Karen with Keith's child]], which would put Season 3 in the timeframe of only a few months; the first TimeSkip occurs between seasons 4 & 5, aging the characters by four years; seasons 5 & 6 cover roughly two years, with time progressing normally until another TimeSkip between seasons 6 & 7 which moves time forward by 14 months; season 8 features another TimeSkip during the final episode of the season of roughly a year; season 9 features another TimeSkip of 5 years during the series finale. From the pilot to the GrandFinale, the show covers roughly 16 years during the 9 years it was on the air. On top of all this, Season 4 shows [[spoiler:Keith]]'s headstone, which states that his death was in 2006, whereas Season 6 shows Nathan watching the 2008 {{Slamball}} championship game live, which ''would'' place the events of Season 4 in 2003 due to Jamie being 5; however Season 9 shows [[spoiler:Jimmy]]'s tombstone, which states that he died in 2006 & just throws any attempt at figuring out a timeline down the toilet.

Another side effect of this, is that Lucas & Brooke's relationship (Which takes place in the second half of the third season) lasted around 6 months on-screen but just under two in-universe months; whilst Lucas & Peyton's relationship the following season has them together for the same number of episodes but covers a period of time that is nearly twice as long.

* DatingDoSiDo: To avoid an overly long list, let's put it this way - of the main cast[[note]]Lucas, Nathan, Peyton, Haley, Brooke, Julian, Quinn & Clay[[/note]] of all 9 seasons, the only ones who didn't date more than other member of that group were Haley, Clay & Quinn; with the later two only coming into the show ''after'' Lucas & Peyton had left and the other characters were already with the person they would finish the series with. And this doesn't even begin to include secondary characters like Rachel, Skills & Mouth, or minor characters like Taylor.

** Peyton's website from the first season can be found [[http://www.punkndisorderly.com/ here]] and features a blog and gallery for Peyton's artwork. However, it wasn't updated after the end of the first season.

** Dan suffered a knee injury in college, and it ended his basketball career before it really began. [[spoiler:Of course, it's revealed halfway through Season 1 that the injury wasn't asn bad as Dan had said for the past 17 years, and that he could have continued playing... If he'd actually bothered rehabbing his knee]].

** Nathan and Haley are basically a happier version of Dan and Karen (HighSchoolSweethearts with a TeenPregnancy) since Nathan, unlike Dan, is able to drop his JerkJock tendencies. After the time skip, Lucas has essentially turned into Keith with his Uncle role with Jamie and supporting Haley.

** The Lucas[=/=]Peyton[=/=]Nathan relationship at the start of the show is essentially Keith[=/=]Karen[=/=]Dan repeating itself - Broody elder brother in love with his JerkJock younger brother's girlfriend. However, it's Peyton realising that she & Nathan are following the same pattern as Karen & Dan that ultimately leads to her ending things with him.

** There are several references to ''Series/DawsonsCreek'' in Seasons 1 & 4. James Van Der Beek pops up as the director for Lucas' movie in Season 6, whilst Creator/ChadMichaelMurray & Hilarie Burton both made appearances on ''Dawson's Creek'', with Burton playing herself when she was still a VJ for {{MTV}}. On top of that, both ''Dawson's Creek'' & ''One Tree Hill'' were filmed in Wilmington, North Carolina.

* OfficialCoupleOrdealSyndrome: Lucas & Peyton. Even though one of the major arcs of the first season is their developing relationship, it takes until halfway through the fourth season - after two love triangles, two dead parental figures, a car crash, drug use, a school shooting & a pyscho stalker - for the two of them to finally become a couple. And then they break up during the 4 year TimeSkip, and only get back together & eventually get married over the course of the sixth season.

* ShooOutTheClowns: Whilst not really comic relief characters, Jamie & Lydia Scott are shipped off to live with Peyton & Lucas during Season 9 in the midst of Nathan's abduction under the pretense of Haley wanting to protect the kids from what was going on.

** Season 6's finale, "Remember Me As A Time Of Day," is clearly designed in such a manner that it can serve as a finale for anyone who was dropping the show with the departures of Lucas & Peyton.


Added DiffLines:

* ShipSinking:
** Brucas gets hit with this several times.
*** Episodes 4x08 & 4x09 are the official end of the relationship - 4x08 features Brooke & Lucas realising they're BetterAsFriends, whilst 4x09 outright has Brooke telling Lucas to tell Peyton how he feels about her.
*** After the 4 year TimeSkip between Seasons 4 & 5, Brooke is one of the biggest supporters of Lucas & Peyton getting back together. To the point that she's arguably more excited than Peyton as she walks down the ailse to Lucas.

* ContinuitySnarl: In Season 5, Jamie celebrates his fifth birthday. However, his birthday happens in the midst of the basketball season, which is impossible since Jamie was born at the end of the school year in Season 4, on the day his parents graduated from high school & after the end of the basketball season. Considring that Jamie's birthday coinciding with that anniversary was mentioned only a few episodes earlier, it really makes no sense as to how no-one picked up on this. Further complicating things, is that Jamie's seventh birthday happens at the start of season 7 and Nathan (At this point, playing in the NBA) is stated to be in the off-season.
