Episode Summary

Guerilla Filmmaking (1)
While directing Oliver's movie, Dawson has to deal with Audrey's complaints about Oliver's kissing skills and he has to recast the other lead role after watching the footages and discovering that Oliver stinks as an actor. Not only must he find someone who can act, but also someone who is hot, and charismatic in less than 6 hours. He ends up hiring Charlie, who fit the profile perfectly. During the shoot, Audrey has a crisis and locks herself in the bathroom because she kissed Pacey and felt like she was betraying her best friend. They have to call Joey, who was over at Professor Wilder's house, for help. After Joey's blessing, Audrey is back on the set so they can finally finish the shoot. Meanwhile, Jack is fed up with his brothers and decides to move out of the fraternity house.

  • Dawson is directing Oliver's movie, and everything is going wrong, which lead's up to the perfect ending. Joey's real feelings for her professor are revealed. Audrey and Pacey kiss. Eric tries to kiss Jack, and now Jack has to move out of the frat house.moreless

    Pretty good episode. Would have been better if the power would have stop going out every 10 minutes. Anyways Dawson is directing Oliver's movie. Oliver is such a bad actor. I am so glad they hired Charlie, but I don't like Charlie very much. It seems like Jen still has very strong feelings for Charlie. I like how it snowed when the final scene was being shot. Audrey and Pacey kiss in this episode. Though, Audrey feels awful about it, because Joey is her best friend. I like how Joey gave her blessings for them to go out. I am so disappointed in Joey. I really wish she would stop going out with her professor. I really wanted her to break things off, but then she goes ahead a kisses him again. Oh well. Maybe he'll lose his job and they'll break up. Eric is definitely gay He was the one who tried to kiss Jack. I can't believe how stuck up the brothers are. I can't believe they don't believe Jack. I like that Jen and Jack has this moment. I almost forgot I love when Joey throws the snowball at that post. I give this episode a 8.5/10.moreless
  • I think I've said it all in the reciew!

    Thought this was a pivitol role in that begins to give Joey

    back some of her demure GIRL POWER in a LOT OF WAYS!

    Think about it...... The professor, Dawson (he called her

    for that oldtime feeling when in need of help)and Pacey

    (in lieu of letting go completely, she gave him freedom

    for now because deep inside she knows the time is not right for them, YET!).

    Dawson is getting back ti his old optimistic self. Which

    may soon become the ddom of he and Jen. They were never really "IN LOVE" anyway. Hew went to her for a dose of something different. Which is exactly the way he was feeling at the time..... ALL will become clear!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • Professor Wilder: Hey, are you selling Girl Scout cookies? Do you have any of the coconut ones with the chocolate and the caramel? I love those.

      This refers to cookies named Samoas or Caramel deLites (depending on the baker/area sold) made famous by Girl Scouts of the USA, a non-profit organization for girls founded by Juliet Gordan Low in 1912. The Girl Scout program helps build character, courage, and confidence in girls ages 5-17, 'who make the world a better place'. From its founding the group has grown from 18 members in Savannah, GA to 2.4 million nationwide, including US territories. 90 countries also participate through USA Girl Scouts Overseas. Selling Girl Scout cookies has been a major part of the organization since as early as 1917, helping girls develop life skills, as well as fund their local organizations.

    • Jen: Just trying to wrap my head around this whole Lemon Diet Coke phenomena.

      The Coca-Cola company first introduced Diet Coke with Lemon to the US in 2001 after Coke with Lemon's earlier appearance to compete with lemon-flavored Pepsi Twist. Due to declining US sales, the drink was discontinued in late 2005. It is still sold in many other countries.

    • Goof: In Professor Wilder's class when Joey is giving her answer she starts to gesture with her right hand when she says, 'It's about a guy.' We cut to a wide angle of the class as Wilder jokes to the class, 'Isn't it always?' If you look closely at Joey during Wilder's comment you can see that her right gesturing hand has suddenly been tucked behind her left elbow with her left fist under her chin. When we cut immediately back to Joey's reaction her right hand is back to gesturing with her right elbow now down on the table.

    • Goof: Near the end of the episode, when Pacey and Audrey leave together, the snow has stopped falling and there is hardly any snow on the ground. Cut to the next shot of Joey walking and the streets are covered in snow and the sidewalks are shoveled. There was not enough time for that much snow to fall and for the sidewalks to get shoveled.

  • QUOTES (33)

    • Charlie: Contrary to popular opinion, I may not actually be the devil.
      Joey: Don't get ahead of yourself.

    • Pacey: How do you do that thing?
      Audrey: What thing?
      Pacey: You smile and the whole world lights up.

    • Audrey: You're not my type. You're not my type.
      Pacey: You already said that.
      Audrey: I know. I'm just... convincing myself.
      (They kiss).

    • Jack: (To Jen after leaving the frat house) I seem to remember the two of us hanging out in front of that coffee stand at the beginning of the year. Then "dumb guy with a dream" comes up and invites us to a fraternity party. Everything after that's kind of a blur.

    • Joey: I was at the bus station one time and someone had written these words on a bench: "Hope dies last." I always loved it. I think you're waiting for a sign.
      Dawson: I've been waiting. I'm freezing my ass off out here.
      Joey: Did it ever occur to you, Dawson Leery, that maybe I'm the sign you're waiting for? It's gonna be ok... for all of us.

    • (To Eric about his undeclared homosexuality)
      Jack: You've got some serious issues to deal with, and you need some serious help. I really hope you find it.

    • Joey: I love you. (To Audrey, then turns to Pacey) I love you. I love you both in the best, simplest way, and all I care about is that you guys are happy.
      Audrey: You're like... giving us permission?
      Joey: You don't need my permission. I'm giving you my blessing... for what it's worth.

    • Audrey: (To Joey) Our friendship is like the special-est thing that I've found since I came here. And what do I do? I step on it. I betray you. Why? Because I am weak when it comes to men.

    • Pacey: If something happened between me and Audrey, it would be a horrible, terrible, awful thing, right?
      Joey: Pacey, you're an idiot.
      Pacey: Ok. If one more person calls me an idiot, I'm really gonna start feeling bad about myself.
      Joey: Don't you think I'd prefer you hooking up with someone amazing like Audrey rather than some random ditz who's name you can't even remember in the morning?

    • Professor Wilder: But it's important to me that you know that what happened between us... I've never done anything like that before.
      Joey: I know.
      Professor Wilder: You know, Joey Potter, I... I don't think I've ever met anyone like you.

    • Dawson: (About the boom mic) And, uh, Pace? I see the boom dip in and out of my frame, I begin to forget our friendship.

    • Audrey: (About Charlie) I'm sorry, ok? It's just that my co-star Charlie Sheen over here, is ramming his tongue down my throat. Hey, I feel like he's looking for my diaphragm.

    • Joey: You know, you're really annoying. 'Cause every time I'm ready to do the smart, sensible thing, you go and you say something that makes me...
      Professor Wilder: Makes you what?
      Joey: Not want to go away.

    • (To Joey about her writing)
      Professor Wilder: Joey, you've got it. The gift. The touch. Whatever you want to call it. I don't. You do. It's a binary distinction.

    • Joey: Do you think it'd be possible to lose the obnoxious glib for 5 seconds?
      Professor Wilder: Yes. Yes, of course. It is possible. Sure. I'm sorry. Go ahead.
      Joey: Uh... I want to say... I'm sorry you kissed me.
      Professor Wilder: Oh, my God, Joey, I can't even begin to apologize about that.

    • Jack: It wasn't about realizing that I was gay, it was about realizing that it was all right.
      Eric: You're an amazing guy, Jack. You know that? You really are. You're the kind of guy that I wanna be.

    • Oliver: So is this gonna be awkward for you, your girlfriend's ex starring in our flick?
      Dawson: I'm running out of options here.
      Oliver: I gotta say... he's pretty decent. I mean... if you're going for the brutally handsome, rippling abs, Tony Scott-version of me, he's about as good as we're gonna get, right?

    • Jack: Procrastination... it's the only skill we ever learn in college.

    • (About Professor Wilder)
      Joey: I spend the rest of the year angsting over some guy I can't be with? I mean, I've been there. It's excruciating.
      Audrey: Bunny... breathe. Ask yourself something, when was the last time you felt as completely and totally alive as you do right now?

    • (About Professor Wilder)
      Joey: I refuse to become another one of his groupies. You know, completely infatuated with the guy and reduced to a babbling idiot at the mere mention of his name.

    • Charlie: Why on Earth would I do you a favor?
      Jen: You get to make out with a really hot girl.
      Charlie: Ok. Step into my office.

    • Charlie: I knew you could never live without me.
      Jen: Hmm. Oh, on the contrary, I actually plan to spend the rest of my life living without you, Charlie.

    • Oliver: Where are we gonna find an actor who fits the bill, you know? Somebody's who's... sexy, charismatic and attractive. And not burdened with a soul.
      Dawson: Exactly. Where we gonna find a guy like that in 6 hours?
      Jen: (Laughs) I used to date him.

    • Dawson: (To Jen) Oliver is without a doubt, the most pathetic excuse for a thespian that's ever been. (Sighs) Ow! Jack and Grams have more sexual chemistry than these two.

    • Pacey: Good morning, Audrey. Now, I can only assume, since it's your day off, that you came down here for a little bit of playful banter and the opportunity to critique my personal hygiene. Which is sweet of you, but you really should have called first.

    • Joey: I'm fine. I... I mean, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little weirded out by recent events.
      Professor Wilder: I'm sorry, Joey. I'm a creep. I... I've robbed you of your innocence, haven't I?

    • Joey: There should be a word for people who use sarcasm as a defense mechanism.
      Professor Wilder: There is. Sarcastic.

    • Professor Wilder: Can somebody give me an example, using their own life, of a conflict between their desires and their ideals?
      Joey: I have an example.
      Professor Wilder: Out with it then.
      Joey: Well, it's um... it's about a guy.
      Professor Wilder: Ah, of course. Isn't it always?

    • Professor Wilder: There is no distinction between writing a story and living your life. The same elements that make a moment in your life ignite, explode, move... these same things make a scene in your writing have life. When a writer has evolved in their work, they've evolved as an individual.

    • Jen: (To Dawson, despairing about the shooting of the film being hectic) We should have made an animated movie.

    • Oliver: (To Audrey) You must be confused. Understandable. It's a common affliction among blondes.

    • Jen: (About Charlie) Dawson, he's evil. Isn't it entirely possible that he is the anti-Christ packed into the body of a handsome musician?
      Dawson: I need you to do me a big favor.
      Jen: You want me to kill him.
      Dawson: I need you to go home.

    • (After Pacey has just mistaken his one night stand's name)
      Pacey: Oh come on, sweetheart, don't leave angry. Or if you must, at least don't drive angry.
      Rina: Have a nice life, Stacey.
