  • Pacey goes to Capeside because his father had a heart attack. Joey babysits Harley. Dawson goes to Capeside to speak at Capeside High about film making.

    9.0
    Awesome episode. Pacey has to go back to Capeside because his father had a heart attack. I am so glad that his father is being so nice to Pacey. Pacey deserves it. I'm on Pacey's side. Doug is just jealous of Pacey. I like how Dawson and Pacey reunited at the end of the episode. Joey has to babysit Harley. To be honest, Harley doesn't need a babysitter. She's old enough to take care of herself. I like seeing Professor Hetson freak out because his daughter is liking boys. Anyways that Patrick guy is a jerk. I like how Joey gives Harley advice. Dawson comes back to Capeside and speaks to one of the classes about film making. I think it would be awesome if Dawson actually taught there. But anyways I give this episode a 9/10.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • At the beginning of the episode, when Pacey is watching TV and gets up to look out the window towards Hell's Kitchen, he accidently bumps the kitchen cabinets and an entire section of them moves noticeably, revealing it to be a fake part of a set.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Professor Hetson: Look, I don't feel right about unleasing Harley on you, but she's been extra loopy these days. I think it's drugs. Joey: It's called hormones. I wouldn't worry about it. Professor Hetson: I'm very worried about her. She's got posters of boys on the ceiling above her bed. Why there, Potter? What purpose do you suppose those pictures would serve in that particular location? Joey: Professor Hetson, Harley is completely normal. One might even worry that she's a cliche. Professor Hetson: I don't like the sound of a normal girl. I corrupted a lot of those. They will do anything to not be normal. I want her to be a lot more like you, anxious, bookish, prone to having boyfriends dump you and moving far, far away. Joey: (Annoyed) Thank you for the reminder. Professor Hetson: So, no boys at the house or calling the house or slowing down while walking by the house. Joey: You better watch it. Sexual deviation may not be on Harley's mind. But if you keep being this strict with her she might realize that there's something fun and naughty she's apparently missing.

    • Dawson: Stay in school, keep your nose clean and stay away from sports.

    • Dawson: Remember this feeling, George. Remember what it was like to make a film about something you loved, the confidence to do it your way, control your vision, keep it your own. I mean that's... I miss that.
      George: Yeah. You do sort of have the stink of a burnout talent on you.
