MY BOYFRIEND'S BACK -- Jen's ( Michelle Williams) ex-boyfriend from New York (guest star Eion Bailey) shows up in Capeside to win her back, and from Dawson¹s (James Van Der Beek) callow point of view it seems to be happening; Pacey (Joshua Jackson) convinces an overworked and tired Joey (Katie Holmes) to crash a party and her evening ands in unforeseen results; and Gale (Mary-Margaret Humes) and Mitch (John Wesley Shipp) continue to work on bringing romance back into their shattered marriage.

- „Anyone who's never been hurt, is either very lucky; or very lonely”
- —Mitch to Dawson
- „For someone who views himself as a tragically nice guy, I spend an awful lot of time apologising”
- —Dawson to Jen
- Pacey calls Joey out on her feelings for Dawson
- Dawson acts like a possessive, condescending, chauvinist idiot
- Pacey punches out a guy who's trying to make a move on a drunk Joey
- Dawson tells Joey he's always there for her and a drunken, sleepy Joey responds by kissing him
- Jen ends things with Billy for good and breaks up with Dawson
- Dawson's reaction is telling Jen that she 'made him fall for her' and that she's incapable of a healthy relationship. Such a nice guy.
