I'd like to take this moment to thank the writers for turning in a script with so little dialogue. To wit: in this next scene, Joey and Audrey burst in on Patrick and Harley Flip-Flops making out. In exchange for not telling Professor Flip-Flops that they've been swapping spit, Joey strong-arms the children into playing Pacey and Joey in I Don't Think This Movie Has Any Moment In It Which Hasn't Been Lifted From Life Entirely.
Meanwhile, Jack more or less prostitutes himself to score some camera equipment for Why Is Jack Even Helping? He Hasn't Seen Dawson in Two Years: The Movie.
Eventually, Dawson and his new wiglet arrive home. They walk into his room to discover Jack, Jen, Audrey, Joey, and a bunch of camera equipment waiting for him. Dawson looks mildly stunned, as Joey tells him that now he must admit, once and for all, that he has "no excuses." She's even gotten him actors! They're learning their lines! And she'd like an executive producer credit on the movie. (Well, she doesn't say that part, but she ought to have done.) Jen wonders if Dawson is ready to "take off the dress and step up to the plate," and I suspect I've somehow transcribed that line incorrectly, but the image is amusing, so let's leave it as it is. Jack nods, piping up that Dawson has no idea what he had to go through for this project. Anyway, Dawson hems and haws until Joey reminds him that all he has to do is film the movie, just like he was planning to do the week before. "And if you tell me that you don't believe in friendship, I'm going to throw you out of that window," she smiles. Dawson offers weakly that he still has his job at the IHOF, but Gale sticks her head in the room and summarily fires him. She then flings him a bottle of champagne and tells him to make a toast to his "fairly amazing" friends. Dawson finally grins and pops the cork. "What can I say? Let's do this thing," he says.
