    "A Weekend in the Country" is such an incredible episode. It's all about families and it kind makes you feel good inside. My favourite scene is when everyone is all together just like a family and they all share their favourite smells. I can relate to Dawson in this episode. I would hate if my parents all of sudden pretended to be a couple. I love how he gets upset about it. I felt terrible for Andie in this episode. She repeatedly asks Jack to come home and he kept saying no because he thinks hit father wants to come home. I am so glad that he clued in and figured out that Andie wants him to come home. The speech that Jack made to Grams and Jen about going home to live with Andie was so sad. Also, Henry not freaking out about Jen's past, and Mitch being all fatherly to Pacey were good scenes. I give this episode a 10/10.moreless
  • The Potter sisters get their first guest into the Bed and Breakfast and it seems that nothing can go right. Grams, Jen, Jack, Andie, Dawson, and his parents all come to help out and make the B and B seem more homely.moreless

    This episode is pivotal to the rest of the season. Throughout the season so far we see that there is something developing between Joey and Pacey but we dont know for sure. In the middle of the episode they are all sitting around the fire and Grams is telling a story about how she use to watch her husband sleep in fron of the fire. Grams says "You know you truly love someone when you can sit all night and watch them sleep in front of the fire". At the end of the episode Pacey walks in and sees Joey sleeping on the couch in front of the fire and he covers her with a blanket. The show then goes on to show clips of everyone else and then it goes back to Joey and as the camera moves you see Pacey sitting in a chair watching Joey sleep and thats how we the audience find out for sure that Pacey has fallen for Joey. This episode shows what the audience has expected but needed to know for sure, Very good episode.moreless

    A beautiful episode . Pacey finaly realising his feelings for Jo and watching her sleep was beautiful . And in the morning when all the gays were dancing in the kitchen was so cute . It was really funny when Pacey cleaned the bathroom . and it was great when he messed pretty much everything up but still maneged to make it right . And all the of their storyes were really nice about their first memories as kids . Body came back too , and Joey was so happy in the end , ofcourse during all the problems she looked like she was gonna have a heart attack . Bottom line a great episode .moreless
  • very emotional

    a very emotional episode, i don't mean it was weepy, but when i remember about dc, the scenes that come into my mind, there are always ones from this episode; especially the particular scene, while the heater wasn't working, while crew was sitting in front of the fire and telling each other stories about "smell"s. the sequence that is unforgettable.

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • Goof: While the kids are dancing and preparing breakfast, Andie seems to be making pancakes. However, later on Bodie is supposed to be the reason why the pancakes taste so good, although he was nowhere near the kitchen when the breakfast was being made.

    • The night that everyone spends at the Potter B&B, is supposed to be the coldest night of the year, in Joey's words. Besides, we learn in the morning that the heat went out during the night. However, when Joey wakes up she is wearing a sleeveless top and PJ bottoms, which doesn't seem appropriate for such a cold night and she doesn't get anything else on. Later that day, she needs to sleep by the fire with a blanket over her.

    • This episode unofficially confirms Pacey's feelings for Joey. At the end, he sits all night long watching her sleep by the fire, which is Gram's official sign of being truly in love.

    • In this episode Jen says she likes her coffee black yet in Like A Virgin Jack is seen pouring milk into her coffee.
