After a long minute of gazing at each other, Dawson asks Joey about her summer. "You meet anyone special?" Joey shrugs. "No one worth mentioning. And you?" she asks. Dawson opens his mouth to say something, but Joey interrupts him with a loud and enthusiastic "finally!" The jukebox is playing her song. She does the tongue-sticky-outy smile at him and almost says something, but thinks better of it at the last minute. "What?" he asks. Joey blushes and explains that oh, it's really nauseating. She doesn't say that, but believe me, it's true. Long gross story short, this song was playing on the radio the first time Dawson ever held her hand, during the summer between seventh and eighth grade. I'm not going to justify the Soulmates Since Elementary School Theme of this episode by saying any more than that. Also, I'd like the record to reflect that I want to barf. But Dawson gets up and asks her to dance. "Are you crazy?" she asks. "Yeah, but the offer still stands," he tells her. So they slow dance in the basically empty bar as the wait staff huddles in the corner and attempts to psychically will them to leave already. Dawson and Joey look dreamily over the other's shoulder and then pull back to stare into each other's eyes. Ew. Oh, God, ew. And it only gets worse.
