Anyway, Dawson protests that he tried to tell him, and Pacey tells him that the problem now is that he's not over taMAHra, and Dawson tells him he should "stay away" citing as support for his view the gossip that followed their last "interlude," coupled with the fact of the girls Pacey's own age who like him and hesitates exactly half a second before revealing that Andie likes Pacey (like, way to keep a secret, blabbermouth, not that anyone actually does keep those secrets in high school, but still). Pacey says Andie hates him, and Dawson says that when a girl hates you that much, it really means that she likes you, and Pacey says, "That's just it: Andie's a girl, taMAHra's a woman" and Dawson tells Pacey he should be with a girl (or, failing that, with Quinn, except that I added the Quinn part). And then Dawson, as usual, bails on Pacey, but not before actually having the gall to say to Pacey, without irony, "Don't go there."
Then we're at The Icehouse which is dead and Joey asks for the day off to go see an art exhibit and Bessie gives her leave but asks her to take Jack because he just sits around "looking dopey" and she feels sorry for him, and Joey tells Bessie that there will be "priceless art" there to which Jack could do irreparable damage, but then she relents, asking Jack if he knows what an art exhibit is, like, he's clumsy and inexperienced, Joey, he isn't retarded, and he replies that he does, and she asks him if he wants to go, and he agrees. Whatever.
Then we're at a warehouse, which I guess is not the same warehouse the Flash was checking out a couple of weeks ago by his swingin' friend Cole's place of business, because as he is cooing over the space the camera pulls back to reveal taMAHra, and I thought their meeting was at 8 AM like two days ago, but whatever. She tells him she's eager to sell and that she'll give the Flash a good deal and he asks if she's trying to outrun financial difficulties like, AS IF he wouldn't know why she was trying to get out of Capeside but quick, and she rightly reminds him, "We both know my problems weren't strictly financial" and then we get a shot of Jughead Jones in profile, NO WAIT that's the Flash with that cartoonish nose and jutting chin. Good lord! So he says, "Well, since you brought it up -- a student, wasn't it?" and once again I have to say that pretending ignorance on this issue is really unbecoming, and she answers, "Yes, something like that. The ceiling needs fixing up, but the windows are completely new. From what I've heard, you're no stranger to scandal yourself," like, Go taMAHra, and the Flash replies, "Only if your definition of scandal includes your wife having an affair with her co-anchor. If you don't mind, I'd like to give that image a rest for the afternoon," and I don't want to get full-on Miss Manners on the Flash, but perhaps if he had scrupled not to needle taMAHra about her sexual peccadilloes, she might not have mentioned his, so, suck it up, buttercup. And they smile and then do not get it on.
