Witterschloss. Pacey "The Green Monster" Witter is under the hood of the Gretchenmobile, tinkering. Enter Gretchen "Alpha Hydroxy Female" Witter with lunch. Car talk. Now it's Gretchen's turn behind the wheel of the Exposition as she says that she talked to the landlord, and the rent is paid up through the end of next month, and then their lease is done. Pacey thanks her for dealing with that, and she says it's payment for the work he's done on her car. Gretchen gives him the older-sister eye and asks how he's doing. He's had better days, he reports glumly, and asks about her and whether she's talked to Dawson lately. She shakes her head, sort of ashamed, and confesses that she doesn't know whether she's avoiding Dawson or if it's the other way around; Pacey says he knows what she means, and product-places his can of Country Time lemonade. "Really?" Gretchen asks. "Same thing," Pacey nods tersely. Gretchen expresses her condolences. Instead of answering, Pacey asks if she thinks they'd feel better dealing with their "significant exes" instead of "holing up" at the Witterschloss. Probably, Gretchen sighs, "but that doesn't mean I'm actually ready to go out there and cope." No, neither is Pacey. "Maybe it's genetic," he cracks. Gretchen smiles ruefully.
