WHAT'S A KISS BETWEEN FRIENDS – Pacey (Joshua Jackson) hopes taking Dawson (James Van Der Beek) to their favorite childhood camping spot will help ease the pain when he tells Dawson about his new feelings for Joey (Katie Holmes). Meanwhile, Joey (Katie Holmes) deals with the emotional fallout from her kiss with Pacey by spending girls' night out with Jen (Michelle Williams) and Andie (Meredith Monroe), but to Jen's surprise they stumble upon a birthday party for Henry (guest star Michael Pitt) that she wasn't invited to.
After kissing Joey, Pacey seeks advice from Doug, who tells him to tell Dawson. Joey tries to ignore her confusion and spends a girls day with Andie and Jen, who is angry with Henry for not inviting her to his birthday. Jack has Ethan over for the weekend, but his father's presence puts Jack in an uncomfortable position. Dawson and Pacey go camping.
