Excessively long scenes-of-Capeside filler before we see Joey come up on the porch of the Witterschloss. Pacey greets her, and she tackles him onto the couch. Niiiice one! Also, bamp chicka bamp bamp. Pacey mock-protests that it's not even nighttime yet, no hello how are you, we never talk anymore, blah dee blah. Heh. Joey points out while gnawing on his face that they "spent nine months talking." (Wah wah wah wahhhh wahhhh.) Pacey pretends to complain about her treating him "like a sex object," which reminds me of that line in The Last Seduction where Mike makes the same complaint, and Bridget's all, "Live it up." Except for the part where Bridget isn't a soul-sucking emotional freak show with split ends. Anyway, Joey suddenly sits bolt upright and asks when Gretchen's coming home. She's not. Get serious, Joey says; Gretchen lives there, eventually she'll come back. Yeah -- to pick up some stuff and skedaddle so Pacey and Joey have the whole place to themselves. Pacey looks all pleased with himself, and Joey starts to look pleased too, but then realizes that Pacey must have told Gretchen about the alpine boinkfest in order to procure himself and Joey a night alone. Joey's face starts to melt: "So she knows?" Pacey, cringing mentally, admits that she does, then says hastily that she figured it out on her own; Pacey didn't tell her. Joey looks annoyed. "Are you mad?" Oh, Pacey, for god's sweet sake -- slip the leash! Joey decides -- really flagrantly, as usual, and I seriously don't understand why people haven't caught onto her awful, unconvincing lying style yet -- to say that she's not; she's a little embarrassed, "but it'll pass." Pacey asks if it's a problem, and says he'll do "pretty much anything in the universe" to make sure that it isn't a problem. Joey says that it isn't, and tackles him again, and they smooch and hug, and we cut to the patented "Joey, her chin on a man's shoulder, stares all conflicted into the middle distance" shot. Whatever.
Okay, you know in the Coke commercial when the stocky guy in khaki shorts is bugging out to the music? I love that guy. I don't know why.
