    "Four Stories" is a excellent episode of Dawson's Creek. Very original if I might add. Story #1 is called "About Last Night". It involves that aftermath of Pacey and Joey having sex the night before. Man, are they both grumpy. Maybe it's because it's early in the morning. Is it just me, or do Pacey and Joey get into some sort of argument in every episode. Anyways I like how they made up in the end. Story #2 is called "The Big Picture". It involves the aftermath of Mr. Brook's death. It's just after the funeral and only 5 people showed up. I thought Gretchen and Dawson acting out that play was funny. I also liked the conversation that Grams and Dawson had. Story #3 is called "Excess Baggage". It involves Jen having to go see a therapist as punishment for being caught with alcohol. I thought the whole thing was funny. Jen is hilarious. I actually kind of felt bad for therapist the way she told him off. But I'm glad she stayed. Story #4 is called "Seems Like Old Times". It involves Dawson and Joey spending a night together having fun. I liked how Dawson noticed Joey was different. I find it awesome that Dawson was in Mr. Brook's will and that Dawson will be getting money from him. I find it weird that Joey lied to Dawson at the end about having sex with Pacey. I give this episode a 8.5/10.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Goof: In the beginning of the episode, as the camera pans the hotel room Pacey and Joey are in, clothes are shown strewn all over, including a bra along other clothes thrown about. In the previous episode however, when Joey and Pacey are getting ready to sleep together it is very obvious Joey is not wearing a bra (or any of the other clothes shown).

    • During the segment where Jen is seeing the therapist, at one point he is taking notes. Jen asks him if she gets a copy and he says "no". This is in violation to the guidelines of the American Psychological Association. Every patient has a right to view all the notes that the psychologist makes during (or after) the sessions.

    • Goof: During the forth story of this episode, when Dawson and Joey walk out of the coffee shop, they switch their coffee cups as if they had each others. This doesn't make sense, since they wouldn't know they had the wrong coffee cup without tasting them first.

  • QUOTES (15)

    • Dawson: Jo, you're not a bad friend. I don't get to say it much anymore, but... you're my best friend. You always were. No matter where you are, no matter where your life may take you, and no matter who you're with...
      Joey: You'll always have a piece of my heart.
      Dawson: Something like that.
      Joey: Yeah. Doesn't have to be a huge piece.
      Dawson: No, no, no, no. Not a huge piece. Just enough. You know, tiny piece.

    • Joey: A couple of years ago, if you would have asked me who the first person I was going to have sex with was, I would have answered unequivocally: Dawson Leery, that's who. The possibility of sleeping with anyone else hadn't even occurred to me. Especially not Pacey.
      Dawson: So what are you saying, Jo?
      Joey: No. I have not slept with Pacey.

    • Dawson: You seem different.
      Joey: I do?
      Dawson: Yeah, it's... you look different too. Is it your hair or something?
      Joey: No.

    • (About Jen)
      Tom: I'd say that the smart, sarcastic exterior masks a scared, lonely young woman who's relationship with her parents have scarred her in ways she hasn't even begun to process. She has a hard time trusting people, men, especially. And who can blame her? When parental ties are severed early on like that, it can send a young person searching for love and acceptance in a variety of destructive ways, which may explain your relationships with drugs, alcohol and a best friend who's sexuality prevents him from ever fully returning your affections.

    • (About Mr. Brooks)
      Dawson: He was a... pain in the ass. (Laughs) He was a grumpy, misanthropic, smarter than you pain in the ass. Barely kind to anybody whoever crossed his path. But he was a friend of mine. And I'm going to miss him.

    • Gretchen: You have no idea what you're doing, do you?
      Dawson: No.
      Gretchen: Good, keep it that way. Because the second you become aware of just how charming you are, you're going to use your powers for evil.

    • Gretchen: I don't think Mr. Brooks needs your pity, Dawson. I mean this is a guy who saw his wildest dreams come true. That's a hell of a lot more than most of us get.

    • Grams: Everyone deals with death in his own way. Some cry, some pray, some get angry at the world. There's no right or wrong.

    • Joey: Years from now when I look back, I'm really not going to remember the clumsy positioning or the morning after awkwardness or whether or not the experience itself meant the text book definition of great sex. I'll remember how sweet you were. How you took me to this brand new place. Pace, I'm glad I had sex. And I'm really glad that I had sex with you.

    • Pacey: You haven't touched me all morning. Here I was thinking that sex brought people closer together.
      Joey: (Walks out)

    • (Talking about Dawson)
      Pacey: I do want to be able to have sex with my girlfriend whom I adore, without having to worry about the soap operatic repercussions of him finding out. Let me ask you one question, Jo. What would you say to him? You know, if he were here right now and he asked you, what would you tell him?
      Joey: I would have to tell him the truth.

    • Joey: Did you ever stop to think that maybe I might be wondering how I measure up? How I fit into the picture that includes not only one, but two prior sexual relationships, both of which meant a great deal to you.

    • Joey: You know, maybe nice means everything to me, Pacey. Maybe nice is all a girl can manage the morning after her first time. Because as you know, it's not something I've ever experienced before so I can't really sit here and honestly say that something is great or mind blowing or transcendent if I have nothing to compare it to.

    • Pacey: Let's say that you were the type of person who enjoyed discussing your boyfriend's sexual prowess, what do you think you might say?
      Joey: About what? About the prowess?
      Pacey: Yeah, about the prowess.
      Joey: You know, just when I think you're the antithesis of the typical male, there you are dragging your knuckles with the rest of my primates.

    • Pacey: So? Did you tell Bessie?
      Joey: Tell Bessie what?
      Pacey: Does the word 'duh' mean anything to you? About last night.
      Joey: And what exactly was I supposed to say, Pace? And if you say that I'm a woman now, I will projectile vomit on you.
