After a shot of a spinning disco ball, we catch up with Pacey and Joey, the latter of whom is reminding the former that she'd told him everything would work out. Pacey bluntly asks Joey what she's doing there, and whether A.J. bailed on her. She makes up some story about the clouds, and the cold, and before she can get to the part where she ends up at the after-party, Pacey asks, "He kissed you, didn't he?" Joey asks him what makes him say that, and Pacey says A.J. would have to be a moron not to, and that her lipstick is smeared all over her face. (Unlikely, since their mouths didn't even move when they kissed.) She nervously regards Pacey over the rim of her glass. He asks if she's going to see A.J. again. She says she doesn't know, and then goes into the many reasons they shouldn't bother -- his age, the fact that he's supposedly smarter than she is, and the distance. She winds up by asking rhetorically, "How could I feel about him the way that I --" "Feel about Dawson," Pacey finishes for her, with an air of resignation. She pauses, and then corrects him: "No, I was actually going to say 'felt.'" Oh, man. If that's true -- if she really is over him -- then praise Jesus.
