Yeah, it's easy for you to say. I know it is. You have to have faith that sometimes things happen when they're least expected. Secrets and Lies[ edit ] Jen: You're heart is going to swell and break a hundred times before you turn I slept with another guy six months ago!
I knew it was wrong when I did it. I keep trying to tell you this and make you understand it. How many times do I have to say it? Andie, If you wanted to sleep with him, if even just for a second, then maybe it wasn't wrong.
Maybe that was just your heart's way of telling you that I'm not the one. No known sex offenders within yards of my property! Yeah, Potter, do yourself a favor. Don't ever go into politics, okay? You're consistently incapable of lying with a straight face.
They voted for me because I'm blonde and I fill out my sweater, Dawson: That too, but I think when Provocateur, messiah to lead them from the mainstream. Escape from Witch Island[ edit ] Jen: I say witch is just a buzzword. For a girl who happens to follow her completely healthy, totally natural urges, and explore her sexuality.
But see, you can't do that in school in the swingin' s without getting the good townsfolk all up in arms. So what do these puritanical, impotent creeps do? Instead of reaching for the Viagra, they brand these girls as witches, they send them off to this godforsaken island to die a horrible solitary death. Well, lucky for you, Jen I mean, we live in a world where you can follow your natural urges without fear of persecution.
I would've been so burned at the stake by now. If he did meet somebody else and forgot about her than obviously they were never meant to be in the first place. Could you be any more naive? Could you be any more cynical? Could you be any more irritating? Hey, once upon a time, you yourself told me that some love stories never end.
What happened to that girl? She offered herself to the boy she loved. The boy she thought loved her back. And he rejected her. I'm kinda tired, actually. Roswell 's on in five minutes anyway. You just let me know when you want to do it and I'll do it.
I've got to say, Blair Witch didn't do it for me. I wasn't remotely scared, that girl was irritating beyond measure and i had to run to the snack bar in dire need of dramamine.
That's no surprise there, Potter, after all you are quite the skittish kitten. When I suggested that we hook up today, this is not exactly what I had in mind.
Believe me, I know, but unfortunatly, Grams' Thanksgiving feast takes precedence over our burgeoning sex life. Correct me if I'm wrong, but we don't actually have a sex life yet, do we? What, and you think that that's my fault? Yeah, i do actually think that that's your fault.
I just find it difficult to watch you paw at me with Foreplay is no laughing matter. How do you expect a guy to do his best work in the face of scorn and derision?
It's just that we're friends, right? And seeing as how we are friends, but now we're friends that Although maybe we could find a moment later? I think I have to go to my parents' for Thanksgiving. I figure it's the right thing to do seeing as they brought me into the world and all. You sound so excited.

Well it's such a joyous occasion. Well, despite the creamed onions, gotta love Grams for offering an alternative. Speaking of, you know, you never told me who else is coming. Andie politely declined the invite. Hey I wasn't going there. I think that she's making dinner for Jack and her dad tonight.
It's good for her to have family at Thanksgiving. Come here [she pulls him close] Pacey: I'm sorry, I'm so sorry. We're all strangers to our parents. I mean, they love us but they don't really know us. And sometimes, before we get a chance to know them, they're gone.
When you come to see your parents as human beings, with their own problems, it is, oddly, kind of liberating. And when you realize they're way more messed up than you are, it's not worth your time or energy to go on despising them for it. Four to Tango[ edit ] Pacey: Nothing, God Pacey this is weird. It's the damnedest thing. How are we supposed to have some lurid, purely sexual affair when every time we get together?
There's no sexual tension. It seems to me that under the previous regimes in my life, every time I was studying, I was given a reward.
I offered you Chex Mix. And I'm not talkin' about Chex Mix. I'm talking about Tamara, and I'm talking about Andie. Let's just say that those 2 ladies, they trained me to equate studying with I equate studying with sex, sex with studying.
Now I get the studying, but no sex, you understand? So it's a little hard to get motivated these days. So what you're saying is you're merely the innocent victim in some behavioral psychology experiment gone horribly awry.
And you're desperately in need of some able-bodied female to help you provoke those pre-conditioned Pavlovian homework responses? That is the worst pick-up line I have ever heard, Pacey. And what pray tell, are you two doing here? Just enjoying the fine art of ball room dancing.
Much better than these two and they've been here all week. But you used to date, didn't you? I'm right, aren't I? You dated, it didn't work out. But then you got past all your issues and now you actually trust each other, right? See, you can see that in the dancing. You can see, that the trust is there. Now these two on the other hand I mean, look at them. Okay is there some sort of problem here? What did I say about rib cages touching?
It's just not going to happen, alright? See the hostility, the way they're weary with each other, not to mention the constant bickering and name calling. Now these two clearly are in the early stages of some screwball mating ritual. Actually, you could not be more wrong.
There's enough sexual tension here to power a KISS reunion tour. I can't remember the last time I saw dancing this bad Wait a minute, you think that just because they can't dance that they're? Well, it's this theory that I've developed based on years of experience Do you want to just tell me what's going on? It's not what you think, Dawson, not even close. How do you know what I think? Well, because man it's written all over your face, okay?
Yes, me and Joey have been spending a lot of time together recently, because we've been here trying to learn how to ballroom dance and then she's teaching me a little trigonometry.Who's the Guy in this Relationship? [Pacey and Joey]

Pacey, you're not going to get out of this by attempting to psychoanalyze me. I'm just asking a simple question. I mean, Dawson, you and Joey See where I'm going with this?
Pacey and Joey
I mean, you're the same guy who told me a couple weeks ago that the two of you just needed to go your separate ways. Yeah, we do need to go our separate ways, it just never occurred to me that That she would actually go her separate way too God, man, this is the way it always is with you, you talk and talk but you don't listen to yourself. I mean, you say you're over her, but you're not. They don't mean anything to you.
You don't know what you're talking about. Just take a good look, she's a freaking goddess, man, how long did you think it was going to be before some guy comes along and is interested in her, I mean really dude, and when that happens, what are you going to do? I-I'm just going to take it all as it comes. You're going to take is at it comes, hombre, well perhaps you should start figuring out right now, because the guy that comes along is not going to be your best friend and he's not going to ask for your permission, the guy that comes along is going to take one look at that woman and just cut right in on ya.
What are you hiding, Pacey?
