"Lists, Plans" is the tenth episode of the eighth season of One Tree Hill and the 162th produced of the series. It will broadcast on November 30, 2010. Brooke and Julian go skydiving, and Haley sets up a concert at Tric featuring Kid Cudi (appearing as himself). Meanwhile, Quinn sneaks out of town to visit a familiar face.


In order to get an agent's license, Nathan returns to college. He opts for a full business major, a tall order but with some "tutoring" from clever Jamie, he starts to feel more confident. Chase initially feels ignored and used when Mia and Alex volunteer as bar assistants for a concert, but ends up enjoying the fringe benefits. Julian decides Brooke should enjoy life again. He helps her achieve this by using a 'bucket list', she had previously made. While Katie Ryan secretly returns to complete her murderous plan, Dan talks Quinn out of a preventive but vindictive strike plan against her.
