    • 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 didn't think it was gonna be this hard.
      Dawson: You didn't think what would be this hard?
      Jack: My life... college. I'm failing out of school, man.
      Dawson: Seriously?
      Jack: Yeah. I... 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.
