Episode Summary

EDIT
Charlie asks Joey to sing with his band at a distant club, which requires Pacey to give them a ride. Pacey and Charlie hate each other, and it takes a patient Audrey to keep them from going at each other's throats. Joey is nervous and isn't well received by the audience, until Charlie helps her with a duet. Still, he doesn't give up putting his moves on her. Audrey and Pacey seem to be more compatible. Meanwhile, Dawson, Jen, Jack and Grams drive up to Capeside for Lily's 1st birthday and Dawson finds out his mother has a new boyfriend. Meanwhile, Jen confesses to Jack that she wants to break up with Dawson, while he is conflicted with the possibility of loving Joey again.moreless

  • Dawson and Jen go home for Lily's first birthday. Charlie asks Joey to sing for his band. Jen doesn't feel like her relationship with Dawson isn't going anywhere.

    8.0
    Pretty good episode, but it could have been more exciting. Dawson brings Jen home for his sister's first birthday. I hate that they broke up in this episode. Hopefully they are not moody and depressed for the next couple of episodes. Charlie asks Joey to be his lead singer for his band. Joey agrees, so Audrey, Pacey, and Charlie, and her all drive up to the club she's supposed sing at. I still think Charlie's a jerk, but I did like that he helped Joey to be a little bit more comfortable on stage. Also, the person who was the friend of Dawson's mother is creepy. I give this episode a 8/10.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (5)

    • In the scene when Pacey and Charlie almost fight Charlie says that he thought some conversation would be a good way to pass a six hour drive. However, earlier in the episode Audrey states that the place where Charlie's band is playing their gig is not too far from Salem, MA. Since they depart from Boston it does not take six hours to drive from Boston, MA to the Salem, MA area.


      Possible Explanation: Audrey was lying to Pacey just to get him to agree to go on the trip. Once the drive was started it wouldn't be easy for him to get out.

    • Goof: When Pacey is handing Audrey a cupcake in the motel room, he places a small candle on it first that it's noticeably crooked. However, in the next shot the candle appears much straighter.

    • Joey gives Lily a scrapbook filled with sketches of Dawson, Mitch and Gale for her birthday that says: "Happy First Birthday Lily! May all your years be filled with memories like these. Love, Joey."

    • Dawson and Jen break up in this episode.

    • This episode marks the second time that Mitch is shown in a flashback since his death. The flashback occurred while Dawson was flipping through Joey's scrapbook gift for Lily. The first flashback of Mitch was in the episode The Long Goodbye.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Pacey: So what is the name of this place we're going to, anyway?
      Charlie: Uh, the 'Drunk and the Dead.'
      Pacey: Oh, that sounds like a nice family joint.

    • Charlie: I think I dreamt this once.
      Joey: What are you talking about?
      Charlie: You, me, a big backseat.
      Joey: This backseat has no implications.
      Charlie: Hey, I didn't say that it did.
      Joey: This is strictly business.
      Charlie: All my backseat transactions are.

    • Audrey: Let's just enjoy this for what it is, a wacky road trip high jinx with a motley crew and their collective sexual tension.
      Pacey: Throw in a bag of pork rinds, you got yourself a deal.

    • Dawson: Is it completely stupid for me to get clothes for my little sister for her birthday?
      Jen: No, I think that it's great, you know. She's finally developing her own sense of style as opposed to that typical blatant nudity.

    • Charlie: Joey Potter. Just the girl I'm looking for.
      Joey: You really have that first name, last name thing down, don't you? Does that help you keep the ladies straight?

    • Pacey: (Referring to Joey and Audrey) "High maintenance" is just another way of saying "high quality."

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • The episode title, Highway to Hell, is probably a reference to the popular AC/DC song, Highway to Hell, especially considering the amount of rock music that can be heard in this episode.
