Hilarie Burton and Chad Michael Murray, One Tree Hill

If a picture is worth what they say, I've got 3,000 very pretty words to share with you.

TVGuide.com has obtained a trio of exclusive photos from the Nov. 17 episode of the CW's One Tree Hill. That outing, as many of you know, was penned by cast member Chad Michael Murray himself.

Entitled "We Three (My Echo, My Shadow and Me)," the out-of-the-box, Casablanca-style episode finds Karen's Café transformed into a circa-1940s nightclub run by Lucas. To go with the theme, Murray, leading lady Hilarie Burton et al will portray retro versions of their Tree Hill selves — donning cool duds and glam garb in the process.

A most striking photo of Lucas and Peyton can be seen here. Other first-look pics depict Nathan with Hayley, and Skillz with "Leyton."

Watch Chad talk about putting together this episode in this video shot on the set in Wilmington, N.C.
