    • Jack: I messed up, Dawson. Dawson: Don't worry about it, man. Jack: I just wish... wish you could ever rewind your life? Dawson: (Chuckles) Pretty much all the time. Jack: I mean, just... pick it up right after graduation and just do it all over again. What would you do different? Dawson: I don't know. Why? What would you do? Jack: I thought I was doing well, you know? Making new friends, trying different things, just... building this whole new life. Dawson: What's wrong with that? Jack: It just got too hard, man. It...

I gotta ace all my finals, all right? I haven't read half the stuff. It doesn't matter 'cause I'll never be able to do it. Dawson: Why? Well... don't say that. Take it one step at a time. We'll help you out in any way we can. Jack: Oh, yeah. That's a great line. Yeah, because we say it to each other all the time. "Dawson, your dad died, but you know what? You're gonna be ok. Hey, you're gonna get through it. We're gonna help you." Dawson: Yeah. And you know what? You guys did. It made all the difference in the world. Jack: Tobey's got a new boyfriend. I called him the other day just to say hi. He seems so happy. How am I supposed to fix my life if I don't even know where I went wrong? I just want to go back. I just want to start over. Why can't I start over? Why? I just want to start over.

    Notes (4)

    • Chad Michael Murray (Charlie) shares a scene with Hilarie Burton, his co-star in the then upcoming show One Tree Hill. Burton plays a girl interested in Charlie before Joey tells her (a lie) that he used to be a member of Hansen.

    • Before they leave on their respective trips, Joey makes a comment to Dawson about getting it right "in another life when we are both cats". This line was made famous by Penelope Cruz in the movie Vanilla Sky, starring her and Tom Cruise. Ironically, Katie Holmes is now married to Tom Cruise; and in the beginning of the Vanilla Sky movie when he is running through Times Square he passes by a large poster of Katie Holmes.

    Trivia (9)

    • Goof: It is supposed to be spring break and the group is supposed to be down in Florida. The weather in Florida during Spring Break is usually warm but everyone is wearing jeans and sweats shirts, probably because they filmed in North Carolina in the winter and not around spring break.

    • Pop band M2M guest star as themselves.

    • When Joey and Charlie are talking in the pup tent in the living room in the morning, Joey's hair changes from being in front of her shoulders to being tucked behind her ears way too fast to be realistic.

    • Goof: When Chris invites everyone to the MTV concert, he asks them to follow him as he can get them in free with his 'clout' as a movie star. But later during the first song, Joey and Charlie arrive walking up the stairs from the beach. They didn't have tickets and Chris wasn't with them.

    • Goof: When the band M2M is performing at the MTV concert, the girls start singing a song that requires a very tight harmony. But at one point we see the second girl with the guitar no singing at all, yet the song continues to have both their voices in the harmony.
