I think 117 is an episode where both Lucas and Haley acted like jerks. It was really crappy of Haley to ride with Nathan after she and Lucas made plans to sit with one another and spend the weekend together. I felt so bad for Lucas during that scene. He was more than justified to feel hurt and angry. And I think it was really crappy of Lucas to say what he did at the pool. The problem Lucas had was that he never really supported Naley until after this episode which I understand. I just didn't like him telling her she looked ridiculous. I don't think he meant it in a mean way - it was just something he should have thought about before saying. And like Lucas said to Nathan - he thought Haley was changing. But I loved and agreed
with what Nathan said in response. It's ironic because, IMO, it was Lucas who was/had been changing - not Haley.
But because Laley kicks ass and is the best OTH friendship ever, they were able to actually talk honestly with one another and not create any further petty drama. So I forgave both of them for their crappy moments in this episode.
