Then we get an ad for Pepsi One featuring as its pitchman Cuba "1997's Answer to Marisa Tomei" Gooding Jr., who is officially doing the least honour to an Academy Award since Kevin Spacey voiced a mean grasshopper in A Bug's Life. Then we get another 10-10-Who-The-Hell-Cares, this time with Dennis Miller, and could someone please tell me why each phone company has to have as its spokesperson a former or current comic actor from an NBC show? There's Paul "A T&T" Reiser (Mad About You), John "10-10-321" Lithgow (3rd Rock from the Sun), Chris "1-800-Call-ATT" Rock (SNL), Dennis "10-10-220" Miller (SNL), Kelsey "MCI" Grammer (Frasier), and Tony "Also 10-10-321" Danza (The short-lived Tony Danza Show). But anyway.
Then we're in art class where we get the usual praise-of-a-main-character-from-a-tertiary-character made popular by Donna Martin and Everyone Who Has Ever or Will Ever Cross Her Path on 90210, as Joey deprecates her artistic talent, and Laura tells her she's great. Then Joey mentions her dead artist mom. And Laura tells her Joey should be serious about art and that "with talent comes responsibility" and that Joey owes it to herself not to let her talent go to waste.
Then we're at Casa Cuckold where the doorbell rings as Dawson comes running down the stairs with an armful of laundry, AS IF a fifteen-year-old boy living at home with his parents does his own laundry, I am just so sure. So anyway, Dawson is "Coming!" and at the door in a purple t-shirt and denim shorts overalls is Andie, who picks up a piece of clothing which had fallen when Dawson opened the door, and when asked what she wants she says she was in the neighbourhood and wondering what the English assignment was, and it's the first two chapters of Gulliver's Travels, according to Dawson who is shoving his clothes into the washing machine and luckily for him those chapters do not focus on the Brobdignagians, so Dawson and his huge melon will get to dodge that bullet of ridicule for a few more weeks. It was not until this scene that it became painfully obvious to me that Andie is, in fact, at least twenty-six years old. Anyway, given the information she claims to have come looking for, she makes as if to take off, only she turns on her heel in a highly exaggerated way that pretty much forces Dawson to call after her as to what she really wants, and finally she tells Dawson to keep the conversation in confidence (yeah right) and asks whether Pacey has mentioned liking anyone, like, maybe, her, and Dawson says no, but that that doesn't necessarily mean Pacey doesn't, and anyway, why? Does Andie like Pacey? And throughout this conversation Andie is neurotically twisting the piece of laundry she had picked up, which turned out to be a pair of Dawson's dirty plaid boxer shorts, like, EW! And then she at first demurs on the issue of liking Pacey and finally spills it that she does, in fact, like him, but she could never tell Pacey that because "he's a pig!" like, no, wrong member of the group, dear, and furthermore, that Dawson can never tell Pacey that, and he agrees, and tells her that Pacey's obnoxious-pig behaviour is sometimes his attempt at flirtation, which tickles Andie with the delight that only a twenty-six-year-old woman pretending to be a fifteen-year-old girl can express, and finally satisfied she starts to leave, but then turns around again and gives Dawson back his dirty gitch, like, FINALLY, my God, and goes on her way without giving her hands a good hard scrub, and I just really hope that Andie doesn't bite her fingernails. That's all.
