Then we're in an office where an ersatz Blair Brown is acting as Andie's therapist. She tells Andie that she's obviously had a lot on her shoulders for someone her age, and orders her to have one night of imperfection. Whatever.
Back at the Ice House, Bessie is telling Joey that she can leave early, since she must want to get dressed for Dawson's party. Joey says it won't take her long to get dressed since there won't be anyone at the party for her to impress, and especially since she's "turned Jack off to women completely." Bessie says, without much conviction, "You know that's not true." Joey says, "Yeah, I know. It's not true. I mean, intellectually, I know that it has nothing to do with me. Bessie, what am I supposed to do now?" Bessie, God love her, says, "You paint. You concentrate on your art, and yourself. I mean, you broke up with Dawson because you wanted to find yourself. Then you went straight into a relationship with Jack. Maybe this is a chance for you to do what you set out to do. I mean, look -- any woman would be feeling the way you do right now, under the circumstances. I think you're handling it with an amazing amount of maturity." She hugs Joey, who says "Thanks." At that moment, Dawson comes bounding in and says he needs to talk to her. Bessie gazes after them as they walk out. Finally, Joey gets some good advice, and it's always nice when an adult hugs her, since she just doesn't get enough of that.
