Season Two Quotes
Joey: What was that?
Dawson: A kiss...I think.
Joey: You kissed me.
Dawson: I know.
Dawson: It was just the sweetest, most romantic, Fourth of July fireworky,
waves crashing on the shore, beyond any movie I could ever imagine kiss.
Pacey: You know I can't believe this. After years of gratuitous
self-examination, you finally did it, you acted. I mean, I thought you and
Joey were going to draw out this 'will they-won't they' drama for at least
another couple of years. Sam and Diane didn't get together for at least 4
seasons and Mulder and Scully...they haven't even kissed! If you and Joey
can get across this romantic checkmate thing you've been in for GOD knows
how many years...anything is possible!
Joey: Hey Dawson: Hey. As my first act as your date, I thought chocolates,
diamonds, and convertibles... but um, I settled for foliage.
Joey: Foliage is good.
Dawson: So, should we go?
Dawson: Okay... I'm really glad we've already bypassed the end of the
evening "will she kiss me" drama. Um... so it should be pretty much smooth
sailing from here on out...
Joey: Yeah, but now you endure the agony of "well, Iíve already kiss her so
should we just check into a motel and go at it like porn stars" anxiety.
Dawson: I..I think I can handle that
Joey: Well. Um... good, cause I know a good motel...
Dawson: Um. How about we start with something very simple... Something that
goes beyond this month's Penthouse Forum.
Joey: And. Um. what would that be Dawson?
Dawson: I would really like to hold your hand.
Jen: The whole time that we were dating, were you really wishing that you
were with Joey?
Dawson: What? No.
Jen: It seems a little sad really, that I was the girl who's sole purpose
was to allow you to figure out who you were in love with.
Mitch : Dawson, boy-girl sleepovers are no longer within the appropriate
boundaries. Now, Joey isn't a little girl anymore, which you've seemed to
Pacey : You know what, your absolutely right. I'm sick and tired of being
Dawson Leery's sidekick. I'm gonna get my own story line!
Abby : You can bet those 2 won't be the poster couple for abstinence much
Jen : What, Joey and Dawson? Yeah right, she'll hold out and he'll just get
sick and tired of it...
Abby : Oh, come on, all those years of sleeping in the same bed. There's not
much more they need to know about each other if you know what I mean.
Jen : No, no, they're like brother and sister. I mean Dawson even told me so
himself he doesn't ever think of her sexually...
Abby : Well maybe they're pretending they're in Kentucky...
Jen : Hey.
Pacey : Hey.
Jen : What are you bumming about?
Pacey : Nothing... I got a bad case of the Molly Ringwalds today...
Jen : Hmm... let me see, umm in "Breakfast Club," she gets detention...
"Pretty In Pink," she gets dumped before Prom... In "16 Candles," everybody
forgets about her birthday... is that it? Is today your birthday?
Pacey : Big 1-6, whoopee!
Pacey : I should be happy for them... I am happy for them...
Jen : Me too...
Pacey : No, you're not...
Jen : I know.
Jack : Excuse me, do you have a second, could you tell your sister I work
here now, cause she's not letting me in the kitchen.
Dawson : God, think about it, you and me together? It's perfect... None of
that pretencious getting-to-know-you crap. I already know everything there
is to know about you. How you think, how you feel.
Pacey : Okay, can't say it hasn't been pleasant talking to you, but don't
you think you should go out and mingle, and meet some new people?
Andie : Yeah, I probably should, but new people make me nervous, I never
know what to say, and eventually I just clam up totally...
Pacey : You joking? Because you haven't stopped talking since the moment I
Andie : Well, you don't make me nervous, you make me mad... Mad beats
Andie : Hey, you're in luck, another varsity cheerleader slash rocket
scientist, and she's checking you out..
Pacey : She's looking at me? You know, cause I haven't had a lot of luck
with the senior cheerleaders this year...
Andie : Luck has nothing to do with it. Some older women happen to like
<Pacey just laughs >
Andie : So go ahead, go talk to her, what have you got to lose?
Pacey : I don't know... Uh, dignity, humility, face...
Andie : Ah, It's not like you had any of those things to begin with...
Pacey : Okay, you know what, McPhee, I really wish I made you nervous.
Dawson : "Don't even try to tell me that when you were my age, you weren't
sneaking around and making out with girls in the backs of cars and movie
Mitch : "You're right, I was. But that was the whole fun of being fifteen,
Dawson! It was the fear of getting caught that made it more dangerous... and
Dawson : "So by restricting my access to Joey, what, you're really trying to
do is liven up my sex life? Hear that, Mom?"
Jen: "What are you saying? That I- I- I should just take off all my clothes
and throw myself at him?"
Abby: "It could work!"
Dawson: WellÖ Ugh, meaning, Look at you! Is that the kind of thing you
normally wear to a study session? I mean, youíve been making suggestive
comments, and touching me all night, and trying to beó
Jen: Dawson, If you canít handle being in the same room with meó
Dawson: Look, I can handle being in the same room with you, I just canít
handle you throwing yourself at me every other second. I mean, donít you
find it humiliating?
Jen: Iím not humiliating anybodyÖ And I know that youíre with Joey and I
accept that. I just donít respect it. And I donít mean this in a slutty
self-degrading sort of way, but I just want to let you know that youíve got
options. And Iím one of them.
Dawson: Who are you? What happened to Jen?
Jen: She got bored, she decided to liven things up a bit.
<She kisses him.>
Jen: I hope you can handle it, Dawson.
Andie : I donít really know you, Dawson, but if I ask you something, do you
swear that youíll keep it in the strictest of confidence?
Dawson : Yeah, absolutely.
Andie : HasÖ Pacey said anything to you about possibly, liking someone?
Dawson : Liking someone? Liking who?
Andie : Liking? Well, I donít know.. Me?
Dawson : Um, I donít recall
Dawson : But that doesnít mean that he doesnít like you, he could very well
like you, he just didnít say anything to me. Why? Do you like him?
Andie : Me? Like Pacey? No wayÖ WellÖ maybe, possiblyÖ
Dawson : Well, why donít you just.. tell him?
Andie : I could never, ever tell Pacey that. I mean, heís a pig! Heís
obnoxious, thereís just no way. And you have to swear to me that you wonít
tell him either.
Dawson : Why do I suddenly feel like Iím in second grade.
Joey : Hey Bessie, you think I could have the day off since thereís nobody
here and thereís this huge art exhibit at the college that Iím dying to go
Bessie : Sure, Iíll hold down the fortÖ
Joey : You are without a doubt, my favorite sister.
Bessie : Iím your only sisterÖ And Joey, this place is dead, why donít you
take Jack with you?
Joey : Thereís priceless art at this exhibit, I mean he could do some
Bessie : Take him! I feel sorry for him. He just sits aroundÖ looking dopeyÖ
Joey : Hey Jack! Do you know what an art exhibit is?
Jack : Heh, Yeah!
Joey: Do you want to go to one?
Jack : SureÖ
Joey : This should be entertainingÖ
Dawson: AndieÖ Andie likes you.
Pacey: Andie hates me!
Dawson: When a girl hates you the way Andie hates you, it really means that
she likes you. Itís basic kindergarten psychology.
FULL MOON RISING
"By moonlight many years ago my true love did I know. And by that moon I
begged her wait, but that night did she go. So young lovers heed my words,
donít squander love away. The moon is changing ever still so comes the light
Andie : "So where are we going?"
Pacey : "How about the movies? That way we dont have to talk too much, so
there's less chance of punches being thrown."
Andie : I'm so excited about the Homecoming dance next weekend.
Pacey : Homecoming Dance? My God, we're hanging out with Marcia Brady.
Andie : You guys mean that youíd rather watch a movie about something than
doing it yourselves?
Joey and Dawson : Correct.
Andie: So, Witter, I hope you have your moves polished and ready, Ďcause I
plan on making a danciní fool outta you.
Pacey: Sorry, No can do, McPhee. I donít dance.
Andie: What do you mean, you donít dance?
Pacey: Well, itís simple. I donít like it, and Iím really not any good at
it. I mean, itís bad enough that Iím goiní on Saturday. Donít expect me to
get out there and bust-a-move cause itís just not gonna happen.
Andie: You donít dance? You are just beyond immatureÖ
Pacey: Well, youíre overbearing.
Pacey: Pick ya up at 7?
Dawson: You 2 having a spat?
Pacey: No, itís just are usual passive-aggressive banter.
Andie: Heh, you guys are a bunch of cynics you know that? I mean, what kind
of high school memories are you guys going to have, if all you did in high
school was bitch and moan about everything?
Joey: Bitching memoriesó
Dawson: Moaning memories.
Pacey: She's cute, he's cute, they've never met before, they're complete
opposites and its gonna get ugly in about oh, 20 minutes.
Dawson: I mean, think about it, thereís not a single dramatic story line in
existence that Shakespeare didnít cover - family revenge, political
intrigue, the great gender battleÖ The guy mapped it all out for us. And
what was his parting lesson? What genres of all genres did he finally
arrived at after years of toil and sacrifice? Tragedy. Like all great
romantics, he finally realized that life is a lot more likely to end up with
a bunch of dead Danish people on stage than with a kissÖ
Mr. Peterson: "What light through yonder window breaks?" It is the mid-term.
And your impending failure is but hours away. Blue books! You will notice
they are blank, and for many of you, they will score higher as such, than
when actually written inÖ
Mr. Peterson : I will be hosting a study session in this classroom at 3
oíclock. It is my recommendation that you attend. Unless of course your
parents have dedicated at least a wing or two to an Ivy League institution,
in which case your tragic East-Coast, aristocratic, social, alcoholic fate
has already been sealed.
Pacey: These chick magazines are racier than Playboy. Thereís always some
article in there about how to prolong your this, or arouse your thatÖ
Dawson: Have you ever paid for sex?
Chris: Does dinner count?
Andie: Question number 84--ooh--"Have you ever fantasized about a friend's
significant other?" Ooh, very quiet in the room all of a sudden.
Chris: Iím a good pacer. I know when to speed up, when to slow down...
Jen: And when to leave somebody alone?
Chris: Jen, is there a particular reason why you arenít receptive to my wily
Jen: Other that the fact that you emit them regularly to any skirt within a
Chris: Actually, I have a car, so itís more like a Tri-State area.
Andie: "Dear Class, went home with a cold that was considerably more
important than you. The test is still on for tomorrow. Study the sample
questions until then. Hardly Yours, Mr. Peterson."
Dena: With meÖ always. So, care to fill me in on the details of your little
Dawson: IídÖ rather not discuss it, actually. Thanks.
Dena: Youíre right Dawson, why talk? People like you and me can say
everything with a look.
Pacey: You know Chris, is there anything redeeming about you, other than
Chris: Iím telliní ya, theyíre out there screwing around by now. Everyone
knows make-up sex is the best kind.
Dawson: I wouldnít know.
Chris: Donít worry buddy, the way you and Joey are going at it, thereís
bound to be some serious make-up sex in your future.
Jen: You know, I used to think it was our mutual feelings for Dawson that
kept us apart. I never would have considered that fact that maybe you were
just a bitch.
Dawson: Look, you wanted a kiss. Is that what you want? Are you prepared for
everything that comes along with that kiss? 'Cause it doesnít just end with
a fade out, alright? There are repercussions. Hearts get broken, friendships
get ruined...your entire life could fall apart because of one kiss, alright?
Thatís what you have to look forward to! So, do yourself a big favor: donít
Andie: I think I was just more shocked by the idea that you have so much
experience, and I, um, I....
Pacey: You, Andie McPhee, are the girl I love to hate.
Andie: I love to hate you, tooÖ
Dawson: All Iíve been thinking about lately is how much I want to take back
our first kiss. How much I would pay to just let you climb through that
window. I mean, who knows what would have happened? I mean, maybe weíd still
be best friends. Maybe youíd still have a thing for me. I just know that I
wouldnít be hurting like this. But then I think about. Everything that kiss
brought into my life. What it was like to look at you and know not just what
you were thinking, but what you were feeling, because I was feeling the same
thing. And then itís all worth it. Itís worth all the pain that Iím going
through. I want to regret kissing you Joey, but I canít. It was the smartest
decision I ever made.
Joey : Dawson, the 2 times I fell in loveÖ on the testÖ They were both you.
I mean the first time I fell was for my friend, the Dawson I grew up with,
the boy across the creek, and the second time was after we kissed. I mean
you became this whole new person to me, and I fell in love all over again. I
mean, just because weíre not together anymore does not change my feelings
for you, Dawson. Itís me Iím unsure of.
Mr. Peterson: Dear Class: Sometimes preparation teaches you more than the
exam itself. Therefore you have more of it. My illness has claimed me for
another day. Test rescheduled.
THE RELUCTANT HERO
Pacey: Uh uh. Youíre an endangered species, my friend, the last of a dying
breed, and this movie is killing you softly with its song.
Dawson: You are insulting me.
Pacey: No, Iím stating the obvious. You take in stray dogs, Dawson. You help
old women across the street, you "Just Say No." You are Jimmy Stewart.
Dawson: What does that make you?
Pacey: The needless waste, born to walk in the shadows of greater men.
Dawson: I donít know what to do, man, sheís spiraling.
Pacey: Maybe we should just finish watching the movie. Jimmy Stewart would
know what to do.
Mitch: So, um, howís Joey?
Dawson: Joey dumped me, and is falling for another guy. Next?
Mitch: And, um, Jen?
Dawson: Probably drunk and stuck to a sidewalk somewhere.
Counselor: Witter, Pacey. Grade point average 1.7, currently failing Biology
and U.S. History. Extra curricular interests: None. Tendency to be
disruptive in class. Has difficulty with tests requiring a #2 pencil. Letís
see here... Career aptitude test. I didnít realize it was possible to fail
an aptitude test. This shows that you have absolutely zero career
objectives. Congratulations, most people with your academic record canít
Pacey : Well, what are my options?
Counselor : Summer school. Followed by a return engagement of your Sophomore
year. And if by some miracle you make it to graduation, a life of leisureÖ
Until welfare reform kicks in, that is. What? No witty comeback? Now Iím
really disappointed in you, Pacey.
Andie: This isnít funny, Pacey. Itís just that your entire future is on the
line here, and I just think that you should be a little bit more nervous. I
mean, youíre so not-nervous that youíre making me nervous.
Jack: Actually, that exhibit was moved to The Met last week. However, Iím
pretty sure I could get us reservations, say 8:00, at Williamís. You know
Billy, that um, hot dog vendor guy down on Baileyís Wharf?
Joey: Ha, you mean, like, a date?
Jack: No, no, of course not, itís more like a dat.
Joey: Oh, a datÖ
Jack: Yeah, you see, you take the "E" off of date and you have a dat.
Joey: Well, and um, what do people do on dats?
Jack: Well, thereís really no code of conduct, and etiquette is definitely
possible. Just kinda make up our own rules, and um, the only requirement is
that we have a great time.
Jen: I want to be your friend.
Dawson: The way Joey was my friend?
Jen: Yes, Dawson, you can come with me. But, you cannot bitch or moan about
my partying habits. Youíve got to keep an open mind, no judging.
Dawson: I can do thatÖ MaybeÖ To some degree.
Jen: And, this is not a date. Youíre way too far gone as a rebound case for
me even to be remotely interested.
Dawson: Is it that obvious?
Jen: Youíre so on the rebound youíre practically bouncingÖ
Joey: Jack, how do you know all these things that normal people donít know,
when you donít know things that normal people do?
Jen: Oh, youíre really one to talk, Dawson. I mean look at yourself. You
donít drink, and you donít mess around, with anybody or anything, but you
are the unhappiest person that I know.
Dawson: Youíre absolutely right! You know, I would take my melancholy over
this any day, because itís real. Iím not fighting to pretend that Iím having
a good time!
Jen: Howís that for irony, huh? Bad girl throws up on a white picket fenceÖ
Donít be disgusted by me, Dawson, deal with me, okay? Accept me, and accept
the fact that there are people in this world that donít need savingÖ
Dawson: Jen, youíre drunk.
Jen: No, Listen to me. Iíve tried, Okay? I have tried to live my life just
like you. I just donít have that sort ofÖ hope. But if everybody did, then
people like you wouldnít be so special, soÖ
Dawson: Jen, youíre special.
Jen: No, no, Iím not, you just want me to be.
Dawson: I donít agree with that, Jen. If you werenít so special, then you
wouldnít be so miserable.
SEX, SHE WROTE
"I want to talk to you about last night. It always comes out wrong, so I
thought I'd write it down. The whole night was amazing, but sex changes
everything. And I think that we should take some time before anything
Abby: He's on the rebound, and God knows she likes to bounce.
Chris: What about you? Do you like to bounce?
Abby: Chris, your lines land like bricks.
Chris: Abby, you're Nancy Drew.... from hell.
Abby: And Jen? She has way too many intimacy issues to bump someone she
Jack: It's not that much fun playing second string.
Jen: I know what you mean. Don't worry. You'll get used to it. I have.
Jen: As much as I love the guy, he's just not there yet. And I can take all
the jerks in the world climbing in and out of my bedroom window, but when
Dawson Leery does it, it better be for me.
Gayle: "Whatcha whatching?"
Andie: "Um, nothing. We're watching an educational video for school. We're
studying human anatomy."
Abby: "No, it's a porno we borrowed from Dawson's vid collection. Ms. Leery,
you have to face the music. Your son is a pervert!"
Abby: "What? I'm not gonna lie! Unlike some people, I do have morals!"
John: "A lot of things in this life sucks. It's my job to prepare you for
HIS LEADING LADY
Devon: "So, how do you date one guy while you're still in love with
Joey: "She's too short to play me."
Joey: "Listen here, you little third-rate wannabe... why don't you take your
irritating self and go prey on someone who doesn't see through your pathetic
attempt to masquerade bitchiness as research."
TO BE OR NOT TO BE
Pacey: "I thought I was helping you out..."
Jack: "Well, you weren't. I didn't need a hero."
AND THAT IS THE QUESTION
Jack: Wait, wait! Even better! We could have a "going into the closet" party
and then everybody could come dressed up as their favorite straight person.
A PERFECT WEDDING
Abby: "You know. I donít think I'll ever be happy...no matter where I am,
I'll always want to be some place else. No matter what I have, I'll always
want something different."
Jack: "It is worse to be incapable of loving than to not be loved."
PARENTAL DISCRETION ADVISED
Joey: "To continue to love somebody when there's no promise of that love
ever thriving, that is romance."
Dawson: "Some situations are too tragic to have a hero...this is one of
Jen: "Jack, I don't wanna die, but I just didn't care enough to run."
