Witterschloss, the next morning. Joey, attired in Pacey's bathrobe (awww yeah), looks through the kitchen cabinets. Pacey materializes to announce that, since the invention of the Cartoon Network, there's really no reason to get up early on Saturday morning. Saturday "morning"? Joey wanted to make him breakfast. There's gooey banter about that. Pacey comments that she should wear his clothes more often. "You like it?" He does. "When was the last time you washed it?" There's unfunny men-are-such-slobs banter about that. Schmooping. Joey gives him a shopping list and sends him out the door -- finally, after more non-cute badinage -- for pancake-makings.
Next, we see Pacey coming out the back door and spotting Dawson, who's headed for the front door. Pacey, mildly panicked, speeds up to catch him before he goes inside, and Dawson apologizes for coming by so early, but he wanted to talk to Gretchen. Pacey is surprised that she's not with Dawson; Dawson in turn is surprised that she never came home the night before. Pacey reassures Dawson that she's probably over at Doug's, slings an arm around Dawson's shoulder, and hauls him off of the porch, but Dawson is worried and wants to find out for sure that she's okay. Pacey tries to get rid of him by promising to call over to Doug's and then call Dawson, but Dawson nags, "Can we do it now?" Pacey relents, hesitantly, and they head inside.
Indoors, Joey's just coming out of the bathroom; when she hears Dawson's voice outside, she grabs her bag and scuttles back into the bathroom to hide.
Downtown "Wellfleet." Jen and Jack arrive at the poetry reading to stalk Tom Frost some more. Jack wants to leave; Jen is adamant. Jack tries to talk sense into Jen, and fails. Jen remarks that Jack doesn't "have the highest opinion of psychiatry." "With my family history?" Jack snorts. Somewhere in the French Alps, Continuity mails a postcard as Jack goes on to say that Jen will forgive him if he doesn't think therapy is "foolproof." Not all therapists know "what they're doing," and any therapist who dates his patients is not a good therapist. Jen shushes him, whispering that she's not "trying to date him." Jack confirms that she "absolutely" doesn't have a crush on Tom. Jen says she doesn't, and wants to know why Jack is "asking me all this," and Jack PSAs that it's "not uncommon" for people to develop "a thing for their shrinks." "That's not what's happening here," Jen sniffs. Jack asks why they bothered to come, then: "Why do you need this guy to like you so much?" Jen says, not very convincingly, that she doesn't need Tom to like her. Jack doesn't believe her.
