Jen cuts to the chase: "She wants to be with you, Pace. She does." Pacey asks how she knows, and Jen allows that Joey told her so that morning, and Pacey asks why he isn't happier to hear that "right now." Jen says it's because right now, Pacey has to walk through the Leerys' front door and tell his best friend that the only girl his best friend can't live without -- "is the same one that I can't live without," Pacey fills in the rest. Jen murmurs, "Yeah." Pacey says he's had this conversation with Dawson in his head "a thousand times." Jen asks how it goes, and Pacey says, "You know, Dawson saying something along the lines of, 'Vaya con dios, Pace. I had my shot at making her happy, now -- why don't you give it a try?'" and I choose to view this line as a minor shout-out since Wing Chun says "vaya con dios" frequently. ["That's true. I bust it out for situations where 'smell ya later' would be inappropriate." -- Wing Chun] Anyway, Jen says it could happen, "minus the Spanish part." Yeah, and minus that other part. Pacey chuckles. Just then, the Flash comes out the front door and tells them that they've just missed Dawson; Pacey asks if Dawson said where he was going, and the Flash says Dawson said something about going to the library. Pacey looks queasy.
Cut to Andie walking through the library, sporting a camo mini and flatter hair than a Fiona Apple look-alike contest. She runs into Pacey and they greet each other awkwardly; he comments on how happy she looks and asks why: "Just your usual library glow?" She babbles that "well, you know, free books make me giddy," but we see "Non-Triumph Of The" Will Krudski come up behind her, so we know that's not the reason. Pacey and Will greet each other, and Will makes a snide comment about the unlikelihood of Pacey studying on a Saturday; then Will says, "So, ah, see you tonight, Andie?" "Yeah," she perks. Will claps Pacey on the shoulder and leaves. Whatever, Will -- spin off already and leave us alone. Pacey gives Andie a little guff about having a date with Will, and she gets embarrassed, but he puts her at ease about it. She asks what he's doing at the library, and Pacey says he's looking for Dawson and asks Andie if she's seen him, which she hasn't, so Pacey says he'll let her get back to work and takes off, and Andie wistfully looks over her shoulder at him as they go in separate directions.
