Episode 01: Coming
Pacey: Well, kissing
Andie: Oh, come on,
Jack. It's not like we kicked you off first or anything. I mean, we've
already kicked off Grams.
Dawson: The same thing that happens with all adolescent crushes. Absolutely nothing.
Welcome to the Leery house, where it's Deja-
Dawson: You can't choose what you love. It chooses you.
Dawson: I feel like I'm at the ribbon cutting of a new strip mall.
Joey: ...my heart.
That's a fixed point. 3 months of riding the open waters couldn't shake
it. I'll be damned if I let your insecurities shake it. My heart never
left this boat. It never
02: Failing Down
Yes. Cause as you so rightly pointed out, I'm a guy. And if I'm going to get in
trouble for being a guy, I think I
Joey: Excuse me, but, ummm, before I submit to another second of your thinly veiled bitchery, do you need a waitress or not?
I don't know, I was 10. Who has good taste in
Dawson: By the time I was 10, I could rattle off every cinematographer Steven Spielberg ever worked with. Which somehow isn't that impressive, is it?
Dawson: Take it from somebody who spent the better part of last spring angry at the world. It's not worth it. I mean, it might numb the pain a little bit, but basically it's just a distraction. I don't know. The point is, if you do it right, Jen, loving someone is gonna hurt. And the sooner you let yourself feel that, the sooner you'll be able to love again.
Dawson: ... feelings change, passions fade, partners come and go. But through it all, one thing remains sacred. And that's friendship and it's true.
Jack: Every time I went by the computer lab today, I saw the same bosomy blonde behind the same blueberry iMac.
Jack: Sounds like someone is drowning herself in an economy size vat of self pity.
Jen: Relationships are just one big sorry after another, culminating in a big final messy sorry.
Jen: Jack, are you thinking about a cross-over episode? Because if so, now's bad timing. I'm a taken woman.
Jen: Dawson, I really don't need one of your sappy self help seminars right now.
Do you have to be so damn earnest? It's disgusting, really. It makes me want to
drown you in the creek.
Pacey: Hey..there's my girl.
Joey: Pacey, a relationship isn't about a romantic three month cruise. It's going to be the details that define us. You know, the moments.
Joey: Whatever it takes, we're going to fix it. You know, everything's going to be okay.
go make out some more, huh?
Episode 03: The Storm/Two
Gentlemen of Capeside
Andie: You know what you look like? A boy with nothing productive to do. Now find a broom!
Pacey: ...it's life's little twists and turns and bumps and bruises that make you who you are.
Episode 04: Future Tense
Dawson: Because maybe college isn't the be all and end all that parents make it out to be. You know, maybe once you get past all rhetoric of all these great books that nobody reads, college is basically just a holding pen for 18-22 year olds. Like one of those airports that everybody has to stop at on their way to some place else. Kinda like prison with a better meal plan.
Dawson: Everybody else could be having fun, or they could just be imitating the fun they see people have in movies.
Joey: I mean, you know maybe I'll just go to one of those fictional colleges. You know, like on those lame high school TV shows that go on for way too long, and then just in time to save the franchise, all of sudden it turns out that there's this amazing world class college just right around the corner where all the principle characters are accepted. Just to be safe, we should probably start the application process.
Andie: Okay, you're not exactly sunshine personified, Joey.
Jen: Look at that, there he is, our host. You know, on a good day, he'll ruin your chances of getting into the college of your choice, convince you he's the sausage king of Chicago, and wreck your father's car, but somehow you'll end up thanking him. (on Drue)
Jen: Let's not delve too far into it because we'll just remember why we're supposed to hate each other.
Pacey: Before I have to drag you kicking and screaming. But now, you want to be carried. No.
06: Great Xpectations
Dawson: Nothing propels you into adulthood faster than the next generation nipping at your heels.
07: You Had Me At Goodbye
Andie: Pacey, Joey, Dawson - you guys are so lucky. Do you have any idea how rare it is to have friends that you've known your entire life? So please don't underestimate that. Because in the end you always go back to the people that were there in the beginning. And in the beginning, there was the three of you.
Andie: When I first met you, I didn't know much about love or friendship. And each of you taught me a lot about both. So maybe by my leaving, I can return the favor. Because the thought of it ending like this, the way things are right now… it's just… it's not how I want to remember us. Do you?
You know who that guy you reacted like is going to be in 10 years, Pace? The
person who knows me best. Dawson knows my past. My future lies with you. Think
about it, you know you didn't even like me three years ago.
08: The Unusual Suspects
Jen: I'm still asleep and this is a dream in which you're heterosexual.
Jen: What could possibly be better than a dapper young lad bearing a floral arrangement?
Jen: Militant pee-wee parents, two o'clock.
09: Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
And being in a relationship means that sometimes we do have to do things that we
don't particularly enjoy for that other person. You know, for me that would be
Sunday dinners with your parents.
Dawson: Moments like this, it becomes glaringly obvious just how related to Pacey you really are.
(to Jack) Will!
Pacey: Because, I'm the only guy at this party who gets to walk in with Audrey Hepburn on his arm.
Pacey: Well, maybe I just wanted these people to see you through my eyes for one night. To see this girl. This woman, who has more class and intelligence and beauty and grace than anyone else who's walking the face of the planet. Maybe things like this just come tumbling out of my mouth because I happen to be head over heels in love with you. But the really scary thing is, I think that they're true.
Joey: ...[Your mom] she raised the perfect boy. And maybe things like that just tumble out of my mouth because I happen to be head over heels in love with you. The scary thing is, I think it's true.
Mr. Brooks: All right. Secrets out. Not to worry, I'm not dead yet. I'm just holding short, waiting for a clearance.
Mr. Brooks: Might be nice to leave something behind, you know? Something for people to remember me by. Since the A&E Biography folks aren't going to get to me anytime soon.
How does it feel to have a dream come true?
Dawson: You have a policy on kissing your younger brother's former best friend underneath the mistletoe at holiday parties?
Jack: God forbid future generations of gay teenagers are denied the right to bowl.
Jen: He does not love me. He just worships my more diva like qualities.
Jack: Wait! That's impossible, okay? In the entire history of existence, bowling has never been fun. Funny, yes. But not fun.
Jack: Oh gay bowling night? Yeah, I'm embarrassed. Not about the gay thing, about bowling.
Joey: Us. Me and you, Pace. We grew up together. You see, Dawson and I, we didn't grow up. We are in that house, in Dawson's bedroom, eternally having the same argument over and over again, in this endless cycle that goes on and on.
The Tao of Dawson
Jack, do you believe in inevitability?
Mr. Brooks: One thing worse than the pain of loss is the aching void of inaction.
Mr. Brooks: Get to the end of the race, it'll be obvious and inevitable. Make no mistake about it, kid. God intends to kill us all. You'll find that you don't need to have your life dictated by the cosmos. You fall in love with the wrong woman, you tell fate to piss off. You don't like his plans for you. Well sure, heartache to be had, but it's a small price to pay for living and dying on your own terms.
14: A Winter's Night
Jack: The great drunk becomes hysterically entertaining. Once inebriated I just… I just become sullen and introspective.
Jack: I'm scared that I'm going to end up alone. I'm scared that I'm always going to be somebody's friend or brother or confidant. But not quite somebody's everything. Mostly I'm scared that I'm never going to find a guy that I love as much as I love you.
Pacey: You're gonna throw it away?
Episode 16: Mind
Episode 22: The
Andie: Wow! Someone's changed. No endless replays of what went wrong, no dark period of pain and regret?"
Pacey: I don't need to tell them. I don't need to compare myself to
them anymore. I did this thing for myself. I just want to feel good
about it. All I want to do now is get up on that stage and feel the sun
against my face and just... know for the first time in my life that I
can overcome anything.
Pacey: I think I--I should
probably go off and live my own life for a little while. That certainly doesn't
mean that this is how I want it to end between us. So hypothetically speaking...
if I were lucky enough one day to find myself owning a sailboat again, and I
were to ask the woman that I love to go sailing with me... would she?
Joey: Memories help make us who we are and who we will be.
