Joey (Katie Homes) agrees to be Pacey's (Joshua Jackson) temporary assistant but they both have second thoughts when their mutual jealousy leads to disaster in the office and her being fired. Pacey fires Joey, admitting he is too attracted to her to get any work done, but their romance is thwarted once again when Eddie (Oliver Hudson) unexpectedly returns to Boston. Much to his surprise, Dawson (James Van Der Beek) sells his idea for a coming-of-age movie, but when the studio wants to change the movie to a teen sex film, he must decide if he should take the deal or stick with his original concept. Meanwhile, an open-minded Grams (Mary Beth Peil) is the intermediary that brings Jen (Michelle Williams) and C.J. (Jensen Ackles) together.
