Next, we cut to The Obligatory Dawson Storyline In Which He Interacts With No Other Regular Character Because All Of The Actors On This Show Hate The Beek. The Head stands on the lawn of Capeside High and stares at its front doors. Oh, God, here we go. This is so clearly The Our Hero Revisits His Past So As To Learn Something Meaningful About Himself plotline. Also known as: naptime. "Dawson Leery, this is your life," Mel Silver says, coming up behind him. (Now, don't go writing me snippy emails: I know that the guy who plays Film Teacher Mr. Gold is, in fact, the identical twin of the actor who played Mel "Father of David" Silver on Beverly Hills, 90210, but as far as I'm concerned, it's close enough. They're identical! They're both Mel Silver to me, now and forever.) "I was just thinking that," Dawson says. Mel Silver thanks him for coming to speak to his film class, and Dawson takes this as an excuse to complain about how poorly his career is going, what with The Worst Movie Ever Made going straight to cable and whatnot. Mel Silver nods sympathetically. "Slow going?" he asks. Dawson retorts that he's wondering why he didn't go to law school. Law school? Dude, try getting an undergraduate degree first. Not to mention the fact that you're only nineteen! I'm pretty sure that it's not too late for a career change. Mel Silver, however, just smiles. "Sounds like you're ready to take over my class. Let's go, Dawson," he says.
