    Enjoyable episode. Some funny scenes. Charlie's band is going on tour and Charlie asks Joey to come with him. I am so glad she turned down the offer. Charlie's band lands a deal for a tour and Charlie asks Joey to go with him, but she doesn't want to leave college in the middle of the semester. Charlie then decides to quit the band and stay with her, which freaks Joey, who thinks they're jumping too many steps. She breaks up with him so he can go with his band on tour. Meanwhile, Oliver and Dawson finally get to NY to meet with an agent, but Oliver ruins the meeting. Dawson threats to end their partnership and Oliver begs for another chance. Civilization is sold and Alex Pearl takes over as the new manager. She promotes Pacey as head chef and fires Audrey. Pacey tries to get Audrey her job back, but all he gets isI think it's a little cheesy that Charlie wants to stay, but it shows how much he cares. I love the scene where Audrey and Joey get into a pretend funny. Hilarious Moment. Charlie was so sweet singing that song. But he's finally gone. Dawson and Oliver finally have that meeting they were supposed to have. I have no clue what Oliver was thinking. He should have let Dawson do all the talking. I didn't like the fight that Dawson and Oliver had, but at least Dawson was able to get a second chance. There's a new boss where Pacey works. She is such a jerk. She fires Audrey, who actually really needs the job. And she'll only give the job back if Pacey sleeps with her. That lady is such a freak. I am so glad Pacey said no. I give this episode a 8/10.moreless

    If not for anything alse Ilove this episode for the fake Joey Audrey fight . And ofcourse when Audrey called Pacey a fantastic male speciment I laughed so hard I think the whole building heard me ! For the rest of the episode Charley leaves town with his band but not before asking Joey to come with him , she ofcourse refuses . But before he went he sang her a song under her window witch was really cute and interesting . O, and I must say I do think Joshua is a fantastic male speciment ! :)moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Goof: At the bar, the singer's lip movements do not match the song.

    • Charlie notes that the Go-Go's rocked "in their day"; however the writers overlooked the fact that they had released a new album to critical acclaim in 2001 and were still on tour for it when the episode first aired.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Joey: All I really know about you and your childhood is that you used to play with Barbie dolls.
      Charlie: OK, it wasn't a doll, It was... ok so maybe it was. But Barbie looks really hot naked.
      Joey: Whatever you say.

    • Joey: The point is, I wasn't there for everyday of your life up until now and you weren't here for everyday of mine.
      Charlie: This is supposed to be a good thing?
      Joey: Living without the weight of eighteen years of expectations, yes it's a good thing.

    • Dawson: So what happened the last couple of days? Did I miss anything?
      Joey: Um, well the usual. You know, broke a few hearts, started a few barroom brawls.

    • (The girls are woken by singing)
      Audrey: It sounds like a cat dying.
      Joey: I think it's music.
      (They realize it's Charlie serenading Joey)
      Audrey: Could he be any cuter?
      Joey: No, but he could be more in tune.
      Audrey: It's like that movie "You make me want to be a better man"
      Joey: Wouldn't it be better for society if I made him want to be a better guitar player?
      Audrey: OK, it's official, you are the Queen of All Negativity. There will be a crowning ceremony later in the day.

    • Joey: I'm the worst kind of person because I suck these boys into my web, and then I make them give up their dreams until they're left sad and dreamless and living in Boston.

    • Audrey: That sound you just heard? That was all the fun leaving the building.

    • Joey: I do not drool.
      Charlie: ...like a basset hound.
      Joey: I do not drool and if you tell anyone I do, then I'll just mention how you moan in your sleep about your mom taking away your Barbie dolls.
      Charlie: Ok, I didn't...
      Joey: Only for about 20 minutes.
      Charlie: In that case, I saw no drool.
