  • It's Christmas holidays and the drama just begins!

    8.5
    A lot of drama for a Christmas episode. Dawson and Gale invite everyone over for a Christmas dinner. Dawson and Natasha broke up which I think is a good thing, because he has no chemistry with her. Eddie surprises Joey in Capeside. I'm glad that Joey got more personal with him. Audrey was crazy in this episode. She's depressed and drinking, and she doesn't want anyone's help. I can't believe she took Pacey's car and crashed it into the house. Todd was hilarious in this episode. I agree with Pacey's brother, that Pacey has changed a lot. It's too bad there no Jack in this episode. I give this episode a 8.5/10.moreless
  • Dawson and Gail invite everyone to their house for Christmas but don't expect the entertainment they get.

    While a lot of things happen in the episode that are intersting, the dinner scene is absolutely hysterical! Audrey gets drunk and tells everyone off and blurts out the things that those around the table really don't want to admit either out loud or even to themselves. For about five minutes she becomes the voice of the whole gang.

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Jen: What are you even doing here?
      Audrey: I missed my flight, bitch, which is really terribly unfortunate because if you think that spending Christmas here on Walton Mountain is my idea of a good time, then you all are about as high as I am right now.
      Gale: Audrey, why don't you go lay down?
      Audrey: Oh, you know, thanks for that, Gale, really, but I think I'm kind of just getting started here. Do any of you have any idea how incredibly hypocritical this whole little gathering is? I mean, I may be flying high on a pleasingly potent cocktail of vodka and painkillers... and thank you, by the way, Gale, for the painkillers, but I seem to be seeing things a little bit clearer than any of you. Dawson. Pacey. You guys hate each other, don't you? You're never going to be able to... to mend this little rift that exists between the two of you, so why do you even bother with the charade? And Dawson and Joey. (Audrey laughs) Here you are, both of you, all grown up and so very pleased with yourselves, and each with your little significant other by your side respectively and while, you know, I will give you that it does make for a pretty picture, the truth of the matter is you guys finally slept together, and you've never really dealt with it and neither of you are going to be able to have a relationship with anyone else until you just finally deal with your crap once and for all and... as for you, Pacey, I am really sorry that Audrey Hepburn next to you broke your heart all those years ago, and it's prevented you from ever fully committing to an adult relationship, but you know what? Just grow up. Merry Christmas, scum suckers. Peace Out.

    • Todd: Where was I? Oh, yes, the birth of Christ. Let me start with what I am thankful for. I am thankful for Gale... for inviting us into her lovely home. And I am thankful to her progeny Dawson. Progeny. Progeny. Her progeny Dawson. This kid has been an invaluable member of my production team. He's helped me through one of the roughest productions known to god and man, and I love him. I love him very much, Dawson. And the funny thing is he's managed to get himself involved in a sexual relationship with a beautiful woman, which reminds me of my first film actually, except she was what we call underage, so we don't talk about that.

    • Natasha: You know what? Heh. You crack me up, Dawson, because you stand here and you say these incredibly noble, incredibly self-aggrandizing things about how you don't want to play the game, when the truth is you brought me home for Christmas, and you can't tell me that you don't get some kind of perverse thrill out of showing me off to your friends and family. It's really quite a shame, Dawson, because they'll be a day when you're old and gray and not even the Viagra's doing it for you anymore, and you could've looked back fondly on that time you banged the living daylights out of that actress in your childhood bedroom while she still had her looks. But I guess that's what you get for thinking with your brain when you really should be thinking with your... well, I think you know.

    • (Drunk and slurring his words)
      Todd: You look very familiar to me.
      Jen: You hit on me on a plane once from Boston to New York.
      Todd: Did we shag?
      Jen: No
      Todd: Are you sure?
      Jen: Yes
      Todd: Because I'm flashing on some sort of mile high club activity.
      Jen: No, that wasn't me.
      Todd: Well good, because that would be embarrassing.

    • Natasha: Are you on your period right now, Dawson?

  • ALLUSIONS (5)

    • Audrey: I missed my flight, which is really terribly unfortunate because if you think that spending Christmas here on Walton Mountain is my idea of a good time, then you all are about as high as I am right now.

      Walton's Mountain is a fictional town in Virginia which was the setting for The Waltons and several made-for-television films.

    • Audrey: ... as for you, Pacey, I am really sorry that Audrey Hepburn next to you broke your heart all those years ago, and it's prevented you from ever fully committing to an adult relationship, but you know what? Just grow up.

      Audrey Hepburn (1929-1993) was an English Academy Award, Tony Award, Grammy Award and Emmy Award winning film and stage actress, fashion icon, and humanitarian.

    • Natasha: It's really quite a shame, Dawson, because they'll be a day when you're old and gray and not even the Viagra's doing it for you anymore and you could've looked back fondly on that time you banged the living daylights out of that actress in your childhood bedroom while she still had her looks.

      Viagra is a drug used to treat male erectile dysfunction (impotence).

    • Audrey: (About Eddie) It makes him a T-1000 of love interests.

      The T-1000 was the villain in the 1991 film Terminator 2 that was supposedly a stronger, better version of the Model 101 terminator, played by Arnold Schwarzenegger.

    • Audrey: Especially when you spend too much time in the airport bar, letting creepy Willy Loman types buy you drinks.

      Willy Loman is the main character in Arthur Miller's classic Death of a Salesman.
