Back in the living room, Andie announces the final scores. Chris scored the lowest in purity, followed by Jen, then Joey and Dawson (who got the same score), and Andie got the highest score. Pacey braces himself, and sure enough, Andie realizes that Pacey didn't hand in his answer sheet. Andie asks why not, Pacey demurs, Andie tells him to "hand it over," and Chris interrupts, "You dog! This wouldn't have anything to do with number 16?" Andie doesn't get it. Pacey looks apprehensively at Andie as Chris explains that they "blew right past it" and that they should "read it again aloud." Jen tries to call him off, but Chris won't let it drop: "Let's just put an old rumor to rest right now." Pacey: "You know, Chris, is there anything redeeming about you other than your house?" Go, Pacey. Chris: "Ouch!" By now, Andie really wants to know what they're talking about, and when nobody speaks up, she looks it up herself, sees the "have you ever had sex with someone twice your age," and chirps innocently, "Oh, it's a joke, right?" Well, Andie, you'll have to take that up with the writers. Anyway, Pacey looks frightened as Chris says, "So it's true after all. Witter laid a pipe with Miss Jacobs." Where I come from, "laying a pipe" means something else entirely, but either way, Chris, shut up. Andie says quietly, "Miss Jacobs. The teacher who left Capeside." Pacey half-nods grimly. Andie, on the point of tears, reminds Pacey resentfully that he called himself "embarrassingly pure -- those were your words, right?" and hurries out of the room. Pacey gets up to follow her and meets Dawson's usual judgmental stare with an eye-roll. Altogether, decent acting in this scene, especially Joshua Jackson.
How much do I love that Old Navy performance fleece ad? No, really, I love the Johnny Blue Jeans-esque guy on the ski lift bopping up and down, and I love George and Weezy doing their motionless ski jump. [I am so glad Sars said that because I love that commercial too, and was afraid to admit it because it's so dorky. "Performance fleece? I'll see you at eight!" -- Wing Chun]
Over at the Chateau Loup hot tub, where Chris "In Sheep's Clothing, Except For The 'Clothing' Part" Wolf readies the seduction scene while clad in a weird Hefner-meets-HSN bathrobe-cum-sweatsuit garment. Dawson asks Chris where Pacey and Andie might have gone; Chris surmises that they have started "screwing around by now" because "everyone knows make-up sex is the best kind." Shut up, Chris. Dawson says he wouldn't know about that, and Chris reassures him that, judging from the way Dawson and Joey have been fighting, "there's bound to be some make-up sex in [Dawson's] future." Thank you, Chris, for reintroducing the mental image of Mr. Fruity Pebbles The Sexual Being, and by the way, do you think you could shut up? Chris then asks Dawson "how [he's] doing" with Jen, since Dawson used to go out with Jen and knows "how she thinks." Dawson observes that Chris has never had much trouble "attracting the opposite sex," but Chris says, "Jen's different. She's too with-it." Does Chris mean Jen Lindley? Anyway, Chris says that Jen "requires a completely different strategy." Dawson: "You mean sleeping with her." Chris: "No, I mean a heavy game of Uno." Shut up, Chris. Dawson, who apparently suffers from the delusion that, just because Jen didn't want to sleep with him, then Jen will not want to sleep with anyone, informs Chris with a mixture of envy and smugness, "It's not gonna happen." "We'll see," says Chris. Dawson asks Chris not to "take advantage" of Jen's current "vulnerable state," and Chris tells Dawson to relax, that they won't do anything "she's not looking forward to." Dawson, with a Nostril Flare Of Great Self-Satisfaction, says, "We'll see." Chris smarms, "Oh, it's proof you need," and points out a light in the guest house, which when turned off will indicate that Chris has taken it to the hoop with Jen. Chris then correctly predicts that Dawson will wind up "out here, alone." Dawson flares his nostrils defensively.
