Henry picks Jen up for their date. Jen says hi. Henry croaks, but whether in awe or because he has only one plasma cell left, I don’t know. Jen asks if he feels okay and says he looks kind of "peaked." Henry blathers something about dreaming of the date for so long. Jen assures him he’s awake. Henry tells Jen she’s gorgeous. "So are you," Jen smiles. They discuss the fact that they both have the same color outfit on, and Jen refers to the spirit of St. Valentine, which Henry says he believes in before presenting her with a red rose. More blathering on the subject of "perfect." Jen stabs herself with a thorn, for which Henry for some reason apologizes, but she says it’s okay, "just a flesh wound," and they get going.
Cut to a golf-cart caravan on a beach. In voice-over, Joey busts on Pacey for "shoving Dawson on that girl." Pacey calls her on her jealousy, but she demurs that Dawson’s "lost right now" and she’s worried about him. Pacey agrees that Dawson’s lost, so he should have as many life experiences as possible. Joey doesn’t understand why life experiences have to mean "wild parties and random hook-ups," and Pacey asks what she would rather Dawson do, "join the Book Of The Month club?" Yeah, really. People party wildly and hook up randomly because it’s fun, Joey. Try it, you’ll like it.
In another cart, Jack grouses, "We’re screwed," and says he can’t tell Kate he’s gay now because he doesn’t want to give her a complex. Andie says he can’t keep avoiding her all night either. Jack repeats that he doesn’t want to hurt Kate all over again, and Andie guffaws and says, "Get over yourself, Jack." "What?" he snaps. These two have definitely improved their sibling interaction, acting-wise.
In the third cart, Kate asks Dawson, "Is there something hideously wrong with me?" No comment. Dawson says no, not that he can’t tell. Kate says that the guy she just broke up with used to tell her "that [she] was an acquired taste," and theorizes that that’s just a nice way of calling her a "filthy eyesore." She asks Dawson if she’s a filthy eyesore. I’ll give her "earsore." Shut UP, woman. Dawson tells her she’s beautiful, "in a way beautiful used to actually mean something." Huh? Kate simpers, "What was your name again?" A song by DJ Rap plays in the background -- unfortunately, because I used to like this song. The carts pull up at the party and everyone piles out. Kate says, "Rock on," and Joey points out that "Scream 3 is playing at the Rialto, we could still catch it." Pacey basically tells her to stow it, and I agree -- if she doesn’t want to go to the party, why doesn’t she just go home? Jack nervously wonders what the Caufield crowd will think of their crashing the party uninvited -- although I thought he had the password -- and Andie says they should have thought of that before they got there, "so, who wants to go get ice cream?" Pacey sighs that if they’ve come this far, they might as well just go. Caufield comes out of the crowd just then, marches up to them, and announces in the manner of a tour guide, "This is my party. And I don’t recall inviting any of you." "You didn’t, our mistake, so we’ll be going now," Andie perks, and she tries to get the rest of the group to follow her, but Jack grabs her arm and pulls her back. Caufield holds a finger aloft and asks if they know the password. Pacey throws it to Dawson, who says, "I know kung fu," and Caufield says, "Okay then," and Pacey burbles, "Well, okay -- okay."
