    What an amazing brilliant episode. I love the ending. Well it's definintely sad ending, but it adds a lot of drama. So Dawson is dropping out of USC, and he goes home to tell his parents. His parents disagree with his decision. I liked the scene with Gale and Mitch and there are watching Dawson with Lillian, and they talk about wanting him to be close to Capeside. Anyways the ending was so shocking. I can't believe Mitch is got into a car accident. I really hope he's not dead. I mean what happened to Mr. Brooke in season 4, and Abbey in season 2, I don't think I would like another death. I kind of like watching Pacey work and bicker with his co-worker. I liked Joey's reaction when she saw him too. I liked that she went over to visit, so now they can be more in each others lives. I've changed my mind about Charlie. He is too interested in sex. I do like the fact that his near-sided. A frat wants Jack to join their fraternity. I like that they are so accepting of him, but somethings up that I don't like. I also don't like that he won't be living with Grams and Jen, and now Dawson. I give this episode a 9.5/10.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

  • QUOTES (24)

    • Joey: So how was Capeside?
      Dawson: Same old same old. They're tearing down the new rialto, building, like, a new 16 theater multiplex or something.
      Joey: I guess it just goes to show you.
      Dawson: What?
      Joey: You can never go home again.

    • Joey: You ok?
      Dawson: Not really. I alienated my parents, and now I find myself adrift in a sea of uncertainty. But, hey, what else is new, right?

    • Jack: I don't want to be wanted just to... to fill some kind of quota.
      Blossom: Well, you know the reason we first came after you, Jack, but the truth is, man, we really like you. Don't be thrown by this quota thing. Yeah, you're filling one. I'm filling one. He's filling one. Everybody in this room has qualities and experiences that are unique. That's why Sigmas kick butt.

    • Joey: At some point in the not so distant future, it may actually be possible to forget all the bad stuff and only remember the good.
      Pacey: I don't know. If you ask me, I think that's already possible.

    • Dawson: And my whole life, everybody's always been telling me to follow my heart. The irony is, now that I've finally figured out what that means, everybody's telling me I'm crazy if I do it.

    • (To Jack, about the frat invite)
      Grams: If these fellows know you 1/10 as well as I know you, I am quite certain they want you for much more than filling a quota.

    • (To Gale)
      Mitch: I'm a family man. I can say with relative certainty that I will never write a poem... (Gale laughs) or paint a painting or make a movie that will change the world. Just wasn't in the cards for me, and that's ok because maybe, just maybe... our son will do that.

    • Mitch: I have lived twice as long as you, and I'm just trying to give you the benefit of my experiences.
      Dawson: Dad, I can't live the life that you want me to have. I can't live the life that you choose for me, all right? I have to have my own.

    • Mitch: You want to talk about standing at a crossroads, fine, but for God's sake, choose your own path.
      Dawson: Dad, that's what I'm trying to do.
      Mitch: No, you're not. You're following Joey down hers. I know how much she means to you, but do you really think it's wise to make major life decisions based on someone else? Remember, this isn't high school anymore. The stakes are high. Your decisions have real consequences.

    • Mitch: When I was your age, I used to spend hours and hours just sitting around thinking about my life.
      Dawson: Why'd you stop?
      Mitch: Well, I guess I got too busy living it to sit around reflecting on it.
      Dawson: I hope I never get to that place.

    • Pacey: Oh, come on. Just hate him with me for a second, would you? You know, nothing'll bond two colleagues quicker than bitching about the boss.
      Karen: We're not colleagues. This isn't a law firm. I wait for people. You cook for them.

    • Jen: Huh! You don't think that we could go a day without having sex of any kind?
      Charlie: A day? Are you insane, woman? We'd be lucky to make it 12 hours.

    • (To Jack)
      Blossom: Sigma Ep has a reputation for being one of the roughest, party-hearty, alpha male fraternities on campus, a reputation which is not entirely unfounded. The dean wants us to diversify. The dean gets what the dean wants, so, yes, Jack, we know you're gay, and we want you in this house because you're gay.

    • (To Joey)
      Audrey: No one's gonna come along and tell you what's expected so you know how to succeed. Relationships are messy. That's their nature. They start messy, and they end messy, and if you ever want to have another relationship in your life, you better just stop worrying about the mess.

    • (To Joey)
      Audrey: You're beautiful and you don't know it. Because you're smart and you don't believe it. You're the kind of girl that guys never get over. Joey, you're the kind of girl that other girls get compared to.

    • Joey: Don't you have a lacrosse team to date or something?
      Audrey: I have this theory about you. You want to hear it?
      Joey: No.
      Audrey: You love academia because of the rules, and you hate relationships because of the lack of them.

    • Dawson: Mom, I know I sound like a complete flake, but I promise you, I've given this a lot of thought.
      Mitch: I've given this some thought myself, and I've decided... you're not dropping out.
      Dawson: It doesn't work like that, dad.
      Mitch: If you're going to stand here and talk to me about crossroads and paths so you can drop out of school and go crash on a sofa, then don't presume to talk to me like you're an adult.

    • Dawson: I'm at a profound crossroads in my life, and I know that if I don't choose this path, I'm going to have significant regrets.

    • (To his parents)
      Dawson: Um... guys, USC Is not for me. I want to drop out. I know this comes as a surprise to both of you, but I spent the whole summer in L.A., And I went to every single one of my classes, and the main thing that I learned about LA is that LA is just not where I want to be right now.

    • Grams: The truth will set you free.

    • Audrey: That's what I miss most about not having a boyfriend: the snuggling. It's better than sex. If only guys knew how easy it was to make us happy.
      Joey: Yeah, but you know what? Even if they did know, they'd still screw it up. Snuggling to them is merely just a means to an end.

    • Audrey: I'm really glad I decided to tag along.
      Joey: You mean invite yourself.
      Audrey: Will you stop? Nobody believes that you don't adore me.

    • Mitch: Seize this opportunity, Dawson. Seize it. It'll be gone in a moment. And that's life.

    • (Dawson leaving for Boston)
      Dawson: Dad I know you think I'm making a mistake, but if I am, it's a mistake I have to make for myself. Alright, and I know when you think about this you're going to realize, I'm only trying to be the kind of person you taught me to be.
      Mitch: I think you are making a mistake Dawson; a huge mistake and I'm disappointed in you. (Long pause) Never ever for a single second forget that I love you and I will always be here for you.
