He tries to kiss her again, and she ducks out of his grasp again, saying, "I mean it." Henry says he's just trying to make her feel better; Jen says no, he's trying to make himself feel better. Henry asks, "What did I do that was so terrible?" Jen asks if he has any interest in what just happened between her and Dawson, and Henry says maybe he doesn't: "Maybe I want to put us before whatever little mini-drama you and your friends have whipped up this week." HA ha! Go, Henry. Jen doesn't agree, narrowing her eyes and telling him to leave. Henry protests that she's "being irrational," but Jen insists on booting his "horny freshman ass," and he clomps off while she fumes. Sorry, Jen, but of all the many reasons to kick Henry to the curb, his lack of interest in Dawson's bruised ego doesn't even make the list.
A shot of the full moon. Will, rowing. Andie, perking. Sars, injecting Vivarin intravenously. Will tells Andie the story of Orpheus and Eurydice in a manner so annoying that I can't shift myself to transcribe it, except to note that anyone referring to Orpheus as a "kick-ass musician" should get drowned in a boot. Long story short, Will waxes pretentious and Andie is captivated. Nnnnnext!
Cut to Andie accidentally interrupting Lollapaloser '00. Dawson pitches a hissy, rinse, repeat, he goes inside, Joey finally breaks out of her trance and runs after him. Andie asks Pacey if it's true, and without looking at her, Pacey mutters, "Yes." Andie, on the point of crying: "I don't know what to say." Pacey, disoriented: "Me neither." It's Will's turn to pray for a trapdoor as Andie says that Pacey must really -- well, care for Joey, although Andie can't bring herself to say the words aloud, to have given up his friendship with Dawson. No response from Pacey. Andie reams him for "be[ing] so stupid," wailing that he's going to get hurt, that Joey will never love him like she loves Dawson (ugh), that Dawson is Joey's first love (hoarf), and Pacey seems to hear an ugly truth in this, because his face falls even farther. With a nonplused "uh," Andie waves a hand at him and walks off. Will sort of shrugs at Pacey and makes a "now what do I do" face. Pacey gestures towards Andie with his chin, so Will follows Andie. Pacey turns to look back at the house and heaves a sigh.
