Dawson wants to know why, if she isnt crushing on him, theres a problem, and Joey basically says that the two of them are changing, and if they dont recognize that, "the male-female thing" will get in the way. Dawson says that that "doesnt apply to us -- we transcend it." "Transcend"? Joey asks how. Dawson: "By going to sleep. Im tired." Joey, turning to leave again: "Thats avoidance." Dawson, reclining on the bed: "No, its proof -- proof that we can still remain friends despite -- any mounting sexual theoretics." "Theoretics"? Joey doesnt "think it works that way." Dawson says, "Come on, dont get female on me, Joey -- I dont want to have to start calling you Josephine," and Joey takes the bait and pounces on him, and they tickle each other all stagily, and Dawson pins her and she gives up, and Dawson says, "Were friends, okay? No matter how much body hair we acquire? Deal?" and Joey nods and says, "Deal," and Dawson makes her promise that they dont have to talk about this again, and Joey says, "You got it. Cool," and shrugs out of her jean jacket, but her face doesnt look like shes "cool" with it. They both crawl under the covers fully clothed and bid each other good night, and Joey scoots all the way over to the edge of the mattress and looks perturbed, and as the camera pans up to show Dawson hogging three quarters of the bed, Dawson asks, "Whyd you have to bring this up, anyway?" I wonder what took her so long, myself, but anyway, fade out.
