The Icehouse. Joey takes the trash out, accompanied by the strains of violin music. Looking for its source, she sees Richie Rich sitting on his boat, clad in high-water khakis and Vans and sawing away on a fiddle. He senses her standing there and, after he finishes, quips, "No applause, just send money." Har. Dee. Har. Har. Not. Joey snorts and turns away, and he asks her not to go, and he mock-accuses her of "spying on" him, and she shrugs, "It's a public dock." He introduces himself as Anderson Crawford, as if that will induce me to call him anything other than Richie Rich (or perhaps "Kermie Rich," since his voice sounds for all the word like Kermit The Frog); Joey responds to this with "congratulations," and he asks, "So, do you come with a name, or -- just an attitude?" Joey: "Just an attitude." Richie: "And people find this charming?" Joey: "I haven't asked." He asks what brings her to Capeside, and she shrugs again, and he banters in her general direction for a minute or two, and then Joey asks what brings him to Capeside, and basically Richie has taken a leave from his all-male boarding school to accompany his parents on an antiquing trip -- not a background guaranteed to win him any points with Joey, who comments, "Well, I'm a Pisces, I'm into Harleys, body piercing, and men with tattoos." Richie, who evidently flunked "Introduction To Sarcasm," asks if Joey has come with her parents, and whether they "own a boat," and Joey lies, "Actually, we brought the chauffeur. Mother hates to sail, she doesn't like the sun, she burns easy." Richie: "What about you?" Joey: "I wear lotion." Richie: "No, I mean, do you like to sail?" Then, after some more mock-hostile flirting, Richie invites Joey sailing the next day, and she says she can't, and he wheedles, "I'll show you my tattoo," and Joey says derisively, "Gap ad has a tattoo?" Old Joey, Old Joey -- wherefore art thou, Old Joey? Richie wheedles some more, and finally she breaks down and says maybe she'll go. Richie "can live with maybe" if she'll tell him her name, and she thinks for a minute before coming up with "Deborah Kerr -- son. Deborah Carson." On a scale of one to ten brickbats to the head, this subplot gets an eight.
Pacey slams the book down on a desktop: "Quiz me." TaMAHra quizzes him on some basic facts, which he gets right, but then she asks him about Ethan's strong sense of duty and says he has to cite examples from the text in his response. Pacey sighs in frustration.
