"Mouthful of Diamonds" is the eighth episode of the eighth season of One Tree Hill and the 160th produced episode of the series. It was broadcast on November 9, 2010. Nathan's career as an agent takes a big step forward when he visits Atlanta, while Haley consoles Jamie regarding his new braces. The drama between Brooke and Sylvia finally comes to a head, and Chase makes a decision regarding Mia and Alex.
Clay finally gets hand muscle control back. As he predicted, Nathan had no reason to be gloomy about his first contract, football talent Troy, which is signed to all parties' satisfaction. Julian and Brooke stand up to his mother, who has to back down on the fancy wedding plans but relapses into drinking. After some occupational therapy for Mouth and himself, Chase handles his Alex-Mia- dilemma. In Nathan's absence, Jamie finds it even harder to face the peril of peer ridicule for getting braces, which Haley only compounds by wearing a 'commiserative' eye-patch
"I feel like people get lost when they think of happiness as a destination. We're always thinking that someday we'll be happy, when we get that car, or that job, or that person in our lives that will fix everything. But happiness is a mood and it's a condition, not a destination. It's like being tired or hungry. It's not permanent. It comes and goes, and that's okay. And I feel like if people thought of it that way, they'd find happiness a lot more often."
