Those things Tom said to me in the car, all mixed up with guilt over what happened with Scott the other night
what does "all mixed up with guilt over" mean?

    Whatever happened the other night with Scott, Tom felt guilty about and this was mixed together with everything else he was saying and feeling.

    Note that the word "over" is not part of "all mixed up with guilt over", but part of "over what happened".
    (all mixed up (with guilt)) (over (what happened))
