Outside the bar, Pacey walks down the street. Audrey comes tripping out of the bar and comes after him. Pacey, irritated, wonders how many more times he needs to explain that he wants to go to sleep! Audrey, by the way, has either the biggest zit I've ever seen on this show right in the middle of her forehead or she's growing a horn. The make-up people didn't do much to cover it up, either way. She tells Pacey that, in a minute, he'll be sorry he was so mean to her. "And you're going to feel like a jerk and I want to save you that pain." She digs around in her pocket and comes up with a room key to the most "ridiculously expensive hotel in Boston." She thought they should spend the last night of their summer vacation in style, she says. Pacey smiles at her. "After all the Motel Sixes, I thought it might be a nice change of pace, Pace." The Promise of Hot Love in Hotel Room Music swells in the background as Audrey promises that she'll let Pacey rest. "No sexual misconduct. Just hardcore REM sleep," she says. Pacey grins. "You're right," he says. "I feel like a jerk." He apologizes, explaining that he just wants to make a good impression in his interview, especially since her father went to so much trouble to arrange it. "Pacey, you're getting all serious on me," Audrey complains, and kisses him. Pacey looks vaguely disturbed by this comment, but gets over it before she comes up for air and suggests they go "rest." Pacey offers that maybe he doesn't need to be quite so strict about the whole resting thing. They skip off. I give them three weeks.
Back at the bar, Joey is outlining her job choices. A) Advance academic career or B) Become saucy bar maid making excellent tips? Jen doesn't think it's even a choice. "Joey Potter will always choose the sensible path. The sensible path in this case is working for Professor Crankypants," she says. And, therefore, Professor Flip-Flops becomes Professor Crankypants. In fact, I'm taking that as a preemptive, psychic shout-out. Jack thinks this is nicely put, but Joey is "shocked and appalled." She makes her mouth into a horrified little "o". "Is that what you think of me?" she asks. Jen assures her that they love her for it. No, they don't, but they're too nice to say so. Jen takes a final sip of her soda and announces that she has to bail. "Our Lady of Continuing Education wants to hit the bookstore bright and early, so I need to get some beauty rest," she says. Jack's leaving, too, but Joey says she's going to stick around. Jack and Jen laugh at her knowingly. "What?" she squeaks. "Nothing. I think it's cute," Jen lies kindly.
