The Importance of Not Being Too Earnest is the 3rd episode of Season 6 on WB teen drama Dawson's Creek.


In an attempt to gain closure with Dawson (James Van Der Beek), Joey (Katie Holmes) stays up all night writing him a emotional e-mail and, in her exhaustion, accidentally sends it out to the entire campus. Meanwhile, Pacey (Josh Jackson) struggles to succeed in the business world without selling his soul; and Jack (Kerr Smith) worries that a very married Professor Freeman (guest star Sebastian Spence "Dark Angel") is aware of his crush.


Professor Hetson decides to dissect Joey's e-mail to Dawson accidentally sent to the entire campus and Eddie advises her on how to deal with the misogynistic Hetson. Pacey starts to get a handle on brokering, until his boss takes credit for Pacey's work. Jack wants to get to know his professor.
