Pacey tells Dawson that he considers them lucky Joey would give either one of them the time of day. Dawson looks at the ground and flares. He finally admits that it makes sense, why it never worked out for either of them. "All we wanted was her. To the extent that it destroyed our friendship And in the end, all that she wanted was for us to be friends again." Technically, I don't think Dawson wanted Joey as much as he didn't want anyone else to have her, but let's not get into that now. Pacey nods, and says that he needs to ask Dawson something. "Is it possible for us to be friends again?" Dawson thinks about it. "Anything's possible," he finally says, and Pacey smiles. "Fair enough," he says, and hands over The Giant Wad Of Cash. Dawson stares down at the money. "Thank you," he finally forces out. "Don't mention it," Pacey says sunnily. They stare at each other. "Making love with you has left me peaceful," the soundtrack sings. Interesting music cue. Am I supposed to take something subtexual from that?
The music swells as we see Harley rowing her boat across the creek. Todd films her, as Dawson calls cut. "I used to be afraid of so many things," Joey voice-overs, as Dawson announces that it's a wrap. His cast and crew cheers. "That I'd never grow up. That I'd be trapped in the same place for all eternity," Joey continues.
