Dawson and Jen come upstairs and walk in on the Flashes making out on the couch. Dawson makes an "it's déjà screw all over again" remark that should have earned him a slap in the mouth. It isn't funny, we don't even see them again this episode -- can't the writers just do a Wheels-from-Degrassi and kill the Flashes off already?
Joey sits on the dock of the PB&B, shucking corn. Pacey comes up behind her and puts his hands over her eyes: "Guess who?" Joey, flirtatiously: "Well, let's see -- it can't possibly be my boyfriend, because we aren't supposed to see each other until tomorrow. He -- he was growing sick of me." "That was before he found out he was homeless and needed to bum a couch for the night," he says, kissing her. She gives him the bad news that, because of the lodger, she's on the couch until Tuesday herself. Pacey sits down beside her and says he's getting the feeling that Capeside didn't really miss them all that much; Joey agrees that "it's like the reverse of It's A Wonderful Life; everyone's better off without us." "Except for each other," Pacey says. She smiles at him, and they touch foreheads. Aw. That's kind of cute. He asks her what she wants to do that night, and as her face falls, he rambles on for a bit with a few suggestions, and then she has to break it to him that she told Jen she'd go to the Dive-In.
