Cut to Dawson dragging Gretchen by the hand down the stairs of Pregnancy Pavilion, Gretchen protesting, "What about Life? I was about to retire in style." Yeah, no kidding. You already get to see movies for five bucks, lady. Ohhhh, she's talking about the game! I get it. I do! Wait -- do I? Then Dawson clears it up for me by saying that "[they're] going to abandon Life for awhile." See what he did there? "Life"/"life"? That is deep, man. Dawson announces that they're going to get in the car and drive. Gretchen says she didn't mean her story as a suggestion; she just had a nostalgic moment. It doesn't matter, Dawson says; it's "exactly what" they need. He continues hauling her towards the door. Gretchen comments that it sounds like a Bruce Springsteen song, and while I start singing "Baby We Were Born To Run" under my breath -- replacing the word "run" with the word "hurl" -- Dawson begins babbling about "epic" and "romantic" and "crazy" and "perfect," and he stuffs Gretchen into her jacket, which I think she stole from the set of Buffy because Willow had on the exact same one in the last episode. Gretchen says they don't have to go right then, but Dawson says that "time is running out," and asks if she doesn't feel "the absolute urgency of this moment," and then he kisses her. And then he drags her out the door. Without telling his parents he's leaving. Or charging his cell phone. Whatever.
Different credits, no Meredith Monroe. Huh?
God, The Forsaken looks bad, bad, bad. I can't wait to see it.
Slow pan in close-up around Jen "Father And Child Reunion" Lindley, looking wistful, as Tom "My Husband" Frost comments in the background, "You're very quiet today." She says she's sorry. "Don't be -- tell me what's on your mind." Jen doesn't think it's important, but Tom Frost says, "We'll see." Jen thinks for a second, then asks Tom Frost if he knows the song "Sweet Jane." "Hmmm, 'Sweet Jane' -- Cowboy Junkies?" he asks, and as Demian and others have so astutely pointed out, it's hard to believe that Tom Frost wouldn't know that Lou Reed did the original version of the song, but Jen corrects Tom Frost somewhat absently and says that the song is stuck in her head, and she used to really love it and "learned it by heart."
