Audrey watches him go, then turns and kisses Pacey. "The end is nigh, my dear," she says. "What are you talking about, woman?" he asks. Audrey flails around, whining that "none of the great couples ever make it in the real world! Sid and Nancy, Bonnie and Clyde, Dawson and Joey! How do you ever expect us to have a fighting chance?" Oh, shut up, Audrey. Why don't you just take Daddy's credit card to Cranes, have engraved invitations drawn up and send one to Trouble? It'll be easier than this routine. Pacey rolls his eyes. "Okay, Stella Adler," he says, "what's wrong with you?" Audrey makes some pathetic noises about "the return to dull normalcy" and how watching everyone go through the banal motions of buying books and going to class is enough to make her want to "blow chunks." Pacey wisely ignores her histrionics and merely wonders why she's not heading back to class with the rest of them. Audrey pouts that nothing important ever happens on the first day of class anyway. Except for getting your syllabus and reading assignment so you're prepared for the next session. I mean, I'm no stranger to ditching class, but I think it's generally a good idea to attend the first one if you can. Stupid Audrey. She reaches out and plays with Pacey's belt buckle. "Did you have a good summer, Pacey?" she babytalks. He hugs her and reassures her that he had a fantastic summer. He thanks her for introducing him to "[her] LA" and to her father, without whom, he exposits, he "wouldn't have a single job prospect." Apparently he impressed Mr. Liddel. Which bothers Audrey. Because she's rebellious and immature. "I don't want you to turn into some lame nine-to-fiver on me, Pacey," Audrey whines. And suddenly, I want to stab her. People need jobs, kid, and it's the height of rudeness to inform your partner that you don't want him to make a living and pay his bills because you think it's "lame" to be a responsible adult. Pacey seems to agree, as he makes a little face, which he quickly covers up. "Well, I'll try, Miss Liddel," he says, "but I do need a job. And it would be nice to have a little bit of disposable cash for a change." Thank you! Audrey refutes this fact, however, by pointing out that Boston has tons of free stuff to do! And it's especially fun if your Daddy pays your credit card bills! Pacey makes some noise about needing to stand on his own two feet for once. "Because the party can't last forever, baby," he tells her. Audrey pouts. "Blah blah, blah blah blah blah," she says. No, really. Those were the lines. "Will you bring my bags in?" she asks. Pacey agrees. Audrey runs off to do I know not what. Pacey makes a put upon face. Since when is he her valet?
