Quotes

PaceyHey Jo
JoeyOh, thank you, Satan, for completing this night of horrors by sending one of your disciples to finish me off
―So. Party?
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

Trivia

  • 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.
