    Another Fantastic Episode of Dawsons Creek. Lot's of drama. Pacey wants to go to this secret party. It was nice and enjoyable to watch the drama between Dawson, Joey and Pacey. Joey doesn't like how Dawsons been acting. Pacey secretly in love with Joey and in other episodes you know Joey has feelings for Pacey. I liked the end of the episode where Pacey decides to teach Joey how to drive. He seems like a way better teacher than Dawson. Dawson gets caught drinking and sent to jail. His father has to bail him out. You'd think his father would understand Dawson but he did the right thing. Dawson changed too much and now he has to work with his mom. The look on his face looked like it didn't register in his mind. Jen is giving Henry a chance, which is nice. I totally knew something bad was going happen on their first date. At least Jen is giving him a chance. Jack ex-girlfriend comes to town. Her boyfriend broke up with her because he was gay I knew right before she said that was going to happen. Then when everyone is in jail she founds out Jack is gay This episode was such a great episode. I give it a 10/10.moreless

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • Goof: The day of the party is supposed to be Valentine's Day, February 14th. Mitch says he doesn't want to find Dawson drunk at a party on a Friday night butFebruary 14th, 2000 was a Monday, not a Friday.

    • Goof: Despite being Valentine's Day, there is a girl wearing shorts in front of the school. February is supposed to be a really cold month in Massachusetts.

    • Goof: The Jello that Jen opens while visiting Henry at the hospital, has its lid already pulled up, probably to make it easier for her to open it during her scene.

    • Pacey voices his feelings for Joey for the first time (to his brother Doug).

  • ALLUSIONS (4)

    • Henry: There's always room for Jell-O.

      "There's always room for Jell-O" was a slogan used to advertise Jell-O as a light dessert that could be eaten at any time, even after a heavy meal.

    • Pacey: No, I don't think you're really, properly grasping the gravity of this situation, Dougie. You see, if I was actually to do something about this, there is the strong possibility that the sun would cease to shine. The tides would cease to rise. In fact, I'm betting there's a pretty good chance that the very earth would crack open and Capeside would become home to a huge hellmouth, that would spew forth endless hordes of monsters and demons that would choke the denizens of this city, making them fall to their knees and pray for return to the days before I took action. That's really what we're talking about here.

      This is in reference to the cult hit Buffy The Vampire Slayer which was set in the fictional town of Sunnydale. Sunnydale was the centre of mystical convergence, otherwise known as a hellmouth.

    • Joey: So what are Goofus and Gallant up to tonight?

      Joey makes a comment regarding the popular column Goofus & Gallant featured in the children's magazine Highlights for Children. This column featured black-and-white illustrations of two boys; one of them responsible (Gallant), and the other irresponsible (Goofus). Goofus is represented by Pacey, while Gallant is represented by Dawson.

    • Pacey: (About to take a a Jell-O shot) Well, thank you, Mr. Cosby.

      Referring to Bill Cosby and his advertisements for Jell-O.
