You Had Me at Goodbye is the 7th episode on Season 4 of WB teen drama Dawson's Creek.


MEREDITH MONROE'S FAREWELL EPISODE – While Jen is branded as a pariah, Joey (Katie Holmes) is once again torn between the men in her life facing the conundrum over choosing between Dawson (James Van Der Beek) and Pacey (Joshua Jackson) to write her college application peer recommendation from "The Person Who Knows You Best" and Andie gets the opportunity of a lifetime.


Andie recovers and returns home. She has frequent visits from Pacey, which incurs jealousy with Joey.
