Pacey J. Witter
Mr. Benjamin Gold
Ms. Tamara Jacobs
The name of the film the students are working on is Helmets of Glory.
Goof: Mr. Gold tells Dawson that he can't get into the film class because he is a Sophomore so this infers that Nellie is at least a Sophomore as well. However, she is also in Pacey's Freshman English class. All the four main characters: Dawson, Joey, Pacey, and Jen are Sophmores, attending their 10th grade.
Goof: When Dawson and Joey are walking down the street and see Jen by herself near the stand, they stop. Dawson is reasoning with Joey, and Joey's hair is in front of her ear. The camera doesn't go off her on the close-up, but when they pull away, her hair is behind her ear.
Dawson: I can't explain it any better Joey. The girl's a mystery to me, but I feel like I've known her my whole life. I mean, it's like the way I feel about you. She challenges me the way you do. She could be you, except she's Jen.
Dawson: I'm an artist. Tortured is a prerequisite.
Dawson: Helmets of Glory chronicles last year's football season and get this, Mr. Cliff quarterback himself is writing, directing and starring in it.
Joey: Oh. A Streisand.
Dawson: This is serious Jo. They're entering it in the film festival. My film festival. This is like immediate competition.
Joey: And it's a sports film?
Dawson: A thin and pedestrian sports film.
Joey: Ah. The epitome of everything you're against. Could life be more cruel?
Dawson: Jen happens to be a bright and talented woman who is clearly in charge of her own body.
Joey: But he's so unkissworthy.
Dawson: It's a movie, you're playing a character. It's not Pacey you're kissing.
Joey: So he's a sea serpent from the deep. What's the difference?
Mitch: It's all about romance. And chapstick.
Dawson: (Regarding Cliff's date with Jen) I don't get it. What did he do that I didn't do?
Joey: He asked her out!
(Gale and Joey are discussing Gale's affair)
Gale: Does Dawson know?
Dawson: (Enters) Know what?
Joey: How to dance.
Dawson: Do me a favor? If I get like this again, and I'm sure I will before this adolescent growth process is over... Next time just chain me to my bed and wait till my moment of clarity to come.
Joey: Can I use leather straps.
Dawson: Not until you explain the Crisco!
Jen: So I'm interested.
Dawson: In what?
Jen: An adventure.
(Discussing Joey's role in Dawson's movie)
Dawson: Joey, you're gonna have to kiss him (Pacey).
Joey: I cannot and will not kiss that cretin.
Joey: (To Dawson, about Jen) I'm not suggesting leather straps and Crisco, just a kiss.
Dawson: Hey, Dad, have you seen my camcorder.
Mitch: Filming today?
Dawson: Yeah. Joey gets decapitated.
Mitch: It's in my bedroom on the night table, your mother's side. You might want to take the tape out.
Dawson: You know, you can get arrested for that in some states.
Jen: (To Joey) You have nice breasts. I mean, don't get the wrong idea, I'm completely hetero. I'm just commenting girl to girl. You have a really nice body.
Cliff: Fortunately, this is a victory dance.
Jen: Ah, and did you make the winning play?
Cliff: Well, you're here, aren't you?

Saturday Night Fever (1977)
Staying Alive (1983)
Dawson: So, in honor of the school dance, I've rented Saturday Night Fever, Staying Alive and Grease.
Tamara: For some reason this story is regarded as some great love story. But the reality is that Heathcliff and Catherine never really belonged together. They never should have been together. Catherine was essentially a mess. It was basically a decent guy who had a lot to learn about life and was apparently better off without some whimpering, mentally unstable wet-rag following him around. The whole thing was wrong. It should never have happened. Bronte should have saved her anger.
Tamara Jacobs is referring to Emily Bronte's novel Wuthering Heights in the above quote, but at the same time she is alluding to her unsteadiness about the kiss she shared with Pacey.
Joey: Oh, a Streisand.
Joey is referring to actress/singer Barbra Streisand, who often writes, directs, and/or produces her own movies.
Dawson: I'm the one who should be kissing her, Joey, not some J. Crew ad.
J. Crew, a clothing company, had an official contract to provide wardrobe for Dawson's Creek. The cast even appeared in their catalog before the show aired for the first time.
Dawson: What have we learned from tonight's 90210 evening?
Refers to Bevery Hills, 90210, a very popular "teen" show that came before Dawson's Creek. Dawson's Creek was often thought of, or at least strived to be, a more "intelligent" take on teenagers than 90210.
