  • Trivia

    • Goof: When Pacey and Joey are paying for their items, the cashier asks him whether 'they found everything they were looking for' and he answers no, but they found what they needed, which was even more important. He then elaborates, explaining that 'if you found everything you needed that day, what would be the point of doing it all over again the next day'.

      Joshua Jackson obviously messed up his line, since he meant to say 'if you found everything you wanted, what would be the point of doing it all over again the next day'.

    • When Pacey and Joey are in the break room waiting for the police to call them back, they start arguing. Then the phone rings but Joey asks Pacey not to answer it so they can finish their conversation. This doesn't make sense at all considering how hard they had tried to get some help to get them out.

      Explanation: It's been even harder for those two to work out their relationship issues. Even when they were together they argued a lot. If they could resolve things maybe missing the phone call would be worth it. They weren't in any real danger.

    • When Pacey and Joey get locked in the K-Mart, they run to the front doors and start banging on them and yelling at the guard. The guard, who is in the parking lot turns back towards his car and faces directly towards them. He isn't that far away not to have noticed two adults standing in the front glass doors, banging on them and yelling at him.

    • Goof: When Joey and Pacey are playing Battleship, several pins can be seen in each screen, marking the areas that have been already tried but there are no actual ships visible.

    • Goof: At the begining of the episode when Joey sees the woman's hand on Pacey's leg, both before and after she sees it, both of the woman's hands are either above the table or slightly below. Nowhere near Pacey's leg.

    • Goof: When Pacey goes to sign the receipt in the morning, he is holding the pen upside down.

  • Quotes

    • Joey: I don't know. I guess I feel different. Like... I've always had this tendency to assume that change, when it happens, can only be for the worse. You know? And lately, I kinda feel like that's not true... like whatever's waiting for me out there... may not be that bad. And even if it is... then not knowing about it... might actually be the good part.

    • Joey: Well, are you gonna answer that, or are we gonna finish this?
      Pacey: We could live for a thousand years, and we would never finish this.

    • Joey: You were wanting to kiss me all night?
      Pacey: Yes.
      Joey: Even when you were yelling at me.
      Pacey: Especially when I was yelling at you.
      Joey: So... is this... some sort of... recent new development in your life?
      Pacey: Wanting to kiss you? No. It's sort of always there... like... white noise, or... the secret service or the threat of nuclear war, for that matter. Just somethin' you get used to.

    • Pacey: I don't know. But... you remember how you said you were willing to be surprised by the future?
      Joey: Yeah.
      Pacey: Surprise.

    • Joey: (To Pacey) Just because I've never done it before doesn't mean I'm not gonna be good at it. I was good at sex, wasn't I?

    • Pacey: You're kidding, right?
      Joey: You said one thing, Pacey.
      Pacey: I said one thing that would help you. How does changing my physical appearance help you?
      Joey: Believe me, if I don't have to look at that thing on your face anymore, I will consider myself helped. Here.

    • Joey: You are letting me drive, right?
      Pacey: Drive? My car? (Laughs) Do I appear to have lost consciousness? Because that's the only circumstance under which you could drive my car.

    • Joey: Wait, Pacey. Let me get my shoe.
      Pacey: Come on, Cinderella.
      Joey: (Sighs) You have a hot date or something?
      Pacey: No, but a beautiful woman did just offer to have sex with me, no strings attached.
      Joey: You're so cute when you're delusional.
