Pacey whines that "everybody from school's gonna be at the Dive-In," and he doesn't think he's ready for that yet. Joey nods and turns back to her corn husks without saying anything. Pacey furrows his brow: "Were you gonna go without me?" Joey makes an "oops" face but covers by telling him that he can just come with her, adding that "it'd be fun -- and healthy, to see everyone." "To see Dawson," he corrects her, flatly. Patiently, she tells him, "Yes, to see Dawson, which we've talked about, Pacey, and it's no secret that I'm anxious to get things squared away with him." "No, it's no secret," Pacey sighs, but he apparently decides to himself not to make a federal case out of it and says that he doesn't care where they go or what they do, as long as they do it together. She smiles shyly. They kiss some more. These two act awfully first-blush-of-love around each other still, considering that they've just spent three months in each other's constant, unbathed, no-room-to-turn-around presence -- never mind not having sex, I don't buy the gooey business lasting this long either. Anyway. "Thank you," she whispers, and heads into the house, practically unable to walk in her midi skirt. Pacey watches her go, then turns back towards the water and frowns.
Oh, hello, Dunkin Donuts.
Fade up on Jaws, showing at the Dive-In. The Dive-In looks, heaven help me, kind of fun. You know, minus the whole Dawson element. Andie, with Danny and Fab in tow, wades into the water, then spots the gang sitting in a boat and tells Danny and Fab to go ahead. Jack teases her about "makin' new friends," and Dawson adds unhelpfully that "it was the French who coined the term ménage à trois." At last, the moment has arrived: Shut up, Dawson. Andie says more or less the same thing, and adds that she only really digs Fab: "The other one just stands there looking like a dolt." No no, that's Jamie that does that. Jen asks if Andie has determined whether Fab is single yet, and Andie giggles, "I'm working on it. Gimme an hour," and splashes off. "Unbelievable," Jack snorts, but it's unclear who he's talking about, because there's a quick cut to Joey and Pacey walking hand-in-hand down the beach. Music Of Great Peril comes from the movie, and Dawson looks over, smiling, spots the couple, frowns, and faces abruptly forward, the better to show off his Hair By Skate-Rat. "I thought you said he wasn't gonna be here, Jen," he mutters, practically hyperventilating. He wasn't going to be, why is he here then, I don't know, look, look away, look, look away, and it's all very obvious and all very high-school.
