Short Summary: The new kids Jack and Andie come to town. (I imagined them much differently) Jack makes it clear he wants Joey. Joey stands by her man. Or does she? Pacey finally gets the girl when he meets new girl Andie. Jen wants Dawson but will settle for Jack.
OPENING SCENE: INT. OF DAWSON’S BEDROOM. JOEY IS ASLEEP ON THE BED ANDDAWSON IS LAYING DOWN BESIDE HER WATCHING HER SLEEP. THE TELEVISION ISPLAYING IN THE BACKGROUND. DAWSON STARTS TO RUN HIS FINGERS THROUGH JOEY’SHAIR. JOEY STARTS TO STIR.
JOEY: (wakes up and turns to Dawson) What time is it?
DAWSON: (looking at the clock) It’s a little after one o’clock.
JOEY: Why aren’t you asleep?… Did something wake you up?
DAWSON: I haven’t been able to sleep…I have a lot on my mind.
JOEY: Do you want to talk about it?
DAWSON: I guess I’m just having a hard time adjusting to the way things are changing between us.
JOEY: Is this your backwards way of telling me your not happy?
DAWSON: No…it’s actually the other way around…I’m extremely happy.
JOEY: Did someone change the rules on me?… I thought that happiness was the sign of a good relationship.
DAWSON: I guess I’m just being the doomsayer…but, I’m turning myself into an insomniac over what I’m going to do when you decide you’ve made a huge mistake….and that you really don’t want to be with me.
JOEY: Dawson,…. Don’ t you think this relationship has faced enough obstacles without creating more?
DAWSON: I know Jo… It’s just that…I never could have imagined how important you would become to me….I don’t do well with vulnerability.
JOEY: Dawson, your not the only one whose put their heart out on their sleeve here….I don’t know what the future holds for us….but I wouldn’t trade the way being with you makes me feel for anything.
DAWSON: You really mean that Jo?
JOEY: Yes Dawson…My dreams have become a reality…I’m your girlfriend. This is no mistake huge or otherwise…We belong together.
JOEY LEANS OVER AND STARTS KISSING DAWSON. DAWSON CREEK THEME SONG BEGINS TOPLAY.EXT. OF DAWSON’S HOUSE. THERE IS A MOVING VAN AT THE HOUSE NEXT TO JEN’SGRANDMOTHER. PACEY AND JEN ARE OUTSIDE WITH DAWSON AND JOEY.
PACEY: Getting a new neighbor Dawson?
DAWSON: Looks that way….planning on being part of the welcome wagon?
PACEY: I don’t know…what do you think the odds are of them having a devastatingly beautiful young daughter?
JOEY: With your luck?….you stand a better chance of winning the lottery….and you don’t even play.
JUST THEN A CAR DRIVES UP AND A YOUNG BOY AND GIRL CLIMB OUT OF THE BACKSEAT. THE GIRL IS DROP DEAD GORGEOUS AND THE BOY IS EQUALLY GOOD LOOKING.
PACEY: Somebody loan me a buck…I think this would be a good time to buy that lottery ticket.
PACEY WALKS OVER TO THE BOY AND GIRL AND STARTS TALKING TO THEM. THE BOY ANDGIRL HEAD BACK OVER TO DAWSONS YARD WITH PACEY.
PACEY: Everybody this is Jack and Andie Patterson.
DAWSON: (puts out hand for Jack to shake) Hi, I’m Dawson (motions toward house) I live here. I guess I’ll be one of your neighbors.
JEN: I’m Jen…(flirtatious) (points toward her Grams house) I live with my Grams right next door to you.
JOEY: (flustered) And I’m Joey….I live down the creek.
JACK: Is Joey your real name or is it a nickname like Andie’s?
DAWSON: It’s a shortened version of her real name.
JACK: Which would be?
DAWSON: A complete mistake to use.
JACK: I see….not too fond of the given moniker?
JOEY: Not really…I prefer Jo or Joey.
JACK: Andrea is the same way absolutely flips if you call her anything butAndie.
ANDIE: Jack you are gonna pay for that…(to Dawson, Joey, Pacey and Jen) He’s right though…Andie is pretty much the only name I’ll answer to.
JACK AND ANDIE’S DAD COMES OUTSIDE AND YELLS FOR THEM TO COME HOME. MR. PATTERSON: Andie, Jack….we have a lot to do here.
ANDIE: Looks like we need to go Jack.
JACK: It was nice meeting you guys and I guess we will see you around.
DAWSON: Yeah, I’m sure you will…we should all get together and go outsometime.
ANDIE: Sounds great…well you know where we live…keep in touch.
PACEY: You can count on that.
ANDIE SMILES AT PACEY AS SHE AND JACK WALK AWAY.
JACK: Did you see how beautiful that girl Joey was?
ANDIE: Yes Jack I did…did you notice how not single she was?
JACK: Not single?…what are you talking about?
ANDIE: Her and Dawson are a couple Jack.
JACK: How do you know that?
ANDIE: What are you blind?…they had that couple aura about them.
JACK: (back facing Dawson’s house) I think that you are completely wrong about that…Andie she was making eyes at me.
ANDIE: (facing Dawson’s house) Jack the only person Joey has eyes for are Dawson. (turns Jack to face Dawson’s house.) Soak it in bro…(Dawson and Joey are kissing) Do me a favor Jack…don’t do a re-run of your pastindiscretions.
NEXT DAY AT CAPESIDE. JOEY AND DAWSON ARE LOOKING AT THEIR SCHEDULES. FIRST JEN AND THEN PACEY WALK UP.
PACEY: (holding out schedule) Does anyone know what "Marriage and Alternate Life Styles" is ?
JOEY: No, but Dawson and I have it on our schedules too.
JEN: Yeah me too….what period do you have it?
PACEY: And make that three for third period marriage class.
PACEY: Well at least if it’s boring…we’ll have each other.
JUST THEN ABBY MORGAN WALKS BY WITH THE NEW BOY JACK. JACK STOPS WHEN HE SEES JOEY.
JACK: Hey, how are you guys doing?
JEN: Fine…so how does your schedule look?
JACK: (holding schedule) It’s okay…just your normal sophomore schedule.
JEN: (looking at his schedule) I see you have the same third period class that we all do.
ABBY: It’s a required class for sophomores starting this year….half the sophomore class has it first quarter and the rest of the sophomore class will have it next quarter.
JOEY: Please tell me you have it next quarter.
ABBY: Very funny Joey…but as a matter of fact I don’t have it this quarter. BELL RINGS.
JACK: Well looks like its time for third period…I guess this is where we part our ways Abby.
ABBY: Unfortunately yes….but I hope we can get together soon….Bye Jack.
PACEY: (sarcastic) Yea bye to you to Abbs…..we’ll miss ya. ABBY GLARES AT PACEY THEN AWAY.
DAWSON: Sure didn’t take long for Abby’s radar to find you.
JACK: Tell me about it. Andie and I ran into her walking to school and she has been my new best friend ever since.
PACEY: Some free advice man… You really should be more picky with your best friend criteria.
ALL THE GANG WALKS INTO CLASS AND SITS DOWN BY EACH OTHER. JACK STARTS STARING AT JOEY, WHO THINKS HE IS STARING AT JEN.
JEN: (whispers to Joey) I can’t believe how absolutely gorgeous Jack is….I want that man.
JOEY: Down girl your drooling…don’t look now but he’s glancing your way.
JEN: Your kidding me right?
JOEY: Nope, appears that he has tunnel vision where your concerned.
ANDIE WALKS IN AND PACEY MOTIONS FOR HER TO SIT IN THE SEAT BESIDE HIM.
ANDIE: Pacey, did you save me a seat?…how sweet.
PACEY: It’s the least I could do….I’m a real romantic you know.
ANDIE: I’ll be the judge of that Romeo.
TEACHER EDWARD EASTERMAN WALKS TO FRONT OF CLASS.
MR. EASTERMAN: Quiet down class and everyone please take a seat….My name is Mr. Easterman. I’m sure you have all figured out by now that this is a required tenth grade class. I have put a pencil and a slip of paper on each desk. I want you to write your name on that slip of paper, fold it and then put it into the bowl on the front of my desk.
DAWSON: (to Joey) Looks like project partner time….nothing worse than study time with a complete stranger. DAWSON WALKS HIS AND JOEY’S SLIPS UP TO THE FRONT AND PUTS THEM INTO THEBOWL.
MR. EASTERMAN: Okay it looks like we have everyone’s slips. Now for the fun part…choosing our life partner.
PACEY: Excuse me…life partner?
MR. EASTERMAN: Yes Mr. Witter…your semester long project is marriage. Each student in the class will be paired up with another student who will be their semester spouse.
PACEY: (to Dawson) This could be wonderful or horrible…with my bad to good luck ratio…. I’m going for horrible.
MR. EASTERMAN: Mr. Witter since your so talkative we’ll start with you….please come up front and pick your wife. PACEY WALKS UP FRONT. REACHES INTO THE WIFE BOWL AND PULLS OUT A SLIP OFPAPER.
PACEY: (hands folded slip to teacher) Here you go….seal my fate.
MR. EASTERMAN: Class as you are assigned your semester spouse, please move your things into desks next to each other.
PACEY: Okay the suspense is killing me….is this my lucky day or not?
MR. EASTERMAN: It’s your wedding day Mr. Witter…how much luckier could you get…with out further ado…our first husband and wife are Pacey Witter and… Andrea Patterson.
PACEY: (elated) ALL RIGHT!
MR. EASTERMAN: That’s enough joy Mr. Witter….take your seat ….and we’ll have Mr. Leery come up next and select his partner. DAWSON WALKS TO THE FRONT OF THE CLASS AND PICKS A SLIP OUT OF THE BOWL. HANDS SLIP TO TEACHER.
MR. EASTERMAN: Our next husband and wife are Dawson Leery and…looks like… Jennifer Lindley.
JOEY: Oh… This has got to be a bad dream. DAWSON WALKS BACK TO DESK NEXT TO JOEY AND SITS DOWN.
DAWSON: What are the odds? I was really hoping for you Jo.
JOEY: I know Dawson….I’ll just have to deal with it.
MR. EASTERMAN: Ms. Potter, you’ll choose next.
JOEY WALKS UP TO FRONT OF CLASS PICKS A SLIP AND HANDS IT TO THE TEACHER.
MR. EASTERMAN: Our next couple is Josephine Potter and…. Jack Patterson JACK AND JOEY LOOK AT EACH OTHER AND SMILE SHYLY.
PACEY: (to Dawson) Ooh….that’s gotta hurt.
DAWSON: What are you talking about Pacey….Jack’s a nice enough guy.
PACEY: Dawson…Jack is a GQ model….drool factor 10
DAWSON: (looks over at Jack) I see what you mean. JOEY STARTS TO COLLECT HER THINGS TO MOVE OVER BY JACK.
JEN: (to Joey) Hey Jo, maybe we could get Mr. Easterman to let us switch partners.JOEY: (to Jen) Could be worth a try…let’s talk to him after class.
JOEY MOVES OVER NEXT TO JACK JACK: Honey…your home.
JOEY: Yes …probably fairly temporary though.
JACK: Temporary?…care to enlighten me?
JOEY: Jen and I are going to ask Mr. Easterman if we can switch partners.
JACK: Am I that undesirable?
JOEY: Believe me it’s nothing personal…it’s just that Dawson and Jen used to date and that makes it kind of awkward for me and Dawson.
JACK: You and Dawson?
JOEY: Yes…Dawson is my boyfriend…didn’t you know?
JACK: I suspected as much….what about Jen is she still pining for Dawson?
JOEY: Maybe a little…I just don’t think it’s a good idea to tempt fate by having them spend too much time together.
JACK: Don’t you trust Dawson?
JOEY: Trust Dawson?…of course I do…Jen on the other hand. BELL RINGS.JOEY AND JEN WALK UP TO MR. EASTERMAN DESK.
JOEY: Mr. Easterman do you have a minute?
MR. EASTERMAN: (looks up from papers) Yes ladies…how may I help you?
JEN: We were hoping you would consider a partner switch.
MR. EASTERMAN: On what grounds?
JEN: Well it’s just that me and Dawson use to date…it might be a littleawkward.
MR. EASTERMAN: Well Ms. Lindley while I have a tremendous outpouring of sympathy for you…my answer is going to have to be no….all partners will remain the same.
MR. EASTERMAN: It’s really not open for debate.
JOEY: Come on Jen…let’s go…thank you Mr. Easterman.
MR. EASTERMAN: (dismissive) Ms Potter…Ms. Lindley.
NEXT SCENE: CAFETERIA/ DAWSON AND PACEY ARE SITTING AT A TABLE. JOEY AND JEN WALK UP AND SIT DOWN.
DAWSON: What did you guys have to talk to Mr. Easterman about?
JEN: We tried to switch partners.
DAWSON: (excited) Did he go for it?
JEN: Dial it down a notch Dawson….he said no….your stuck with me.
DAWSON: Oh…well that’s okay too.
JEN: Yeah…that was believable.
NEXT SCENE: DAWSON AND JOEY ARE WALKING HOME FROM SCHOOL.
DAWSON: So are you going to be okay with me and Jen being partners?
JOEY: Last time I checked I didn’t have much of a choice.
DAWSON: Maybe I could try talking to Mr. Easterman….see if I can change hismind.
JOEY: Don’t waste your breath Dawson…the mans a rock.
DAWSON: So how do you feel about being paired with Jack?
JOEY: I’ll survive…why are you worried?
DAWSON: Worried about what?
JOEY: Oh I don’t know…maybe that I’ll enjoy being Jack’s wife.
DAWSON: I don’t need to worry about that…..a good friend of mine once told me that we belong together….Jack wouldn’t stand a chance.
NEXT SCENE: JEN WALKS NEXT DOOR TO JACK AND ANDIE’S HOUSE. RINGS DOORBELL. DOOR IS ANSWERED BY JACK.
JACK: (surprised) Jen , I didn’t expect to see you…what can I help you with?
JEN: I was just going to the Ice House to get a bite to eat…I thought maybe you would like to join me.
JACK: I really would like to….but I’m expecting Joey any minutenow….raincheck?
JEN: Sure absolutely…raincheck it is…bye.
JEN TURNS TO LEAVE. JACK CLOSES DOOR. JEN WALKS OVER TO DAWSON’S HOUSE AND RINGS THE BELL.
DAWSON: (answers door) Hey Jen…what’s up?
JEN: I was hoping that Joey was here.
DAWSON: Yeah she’s in the kitchen talking to Pacey and Andie….did you want to come in?
JEN: Actually I need to talk to her in private….could you get her for me?
DAWSON: Sure…is everything okay Jen?
JEN: Yes…I just want to ask her a favor.
DAWSON: What kind of favor?
JEN: It’s kind of personal.
JOEY WALKS UP TO DAWSON AT THE DOOR. JOEY: Dawson, I have to get going…Jack is expecting me….Jen, Hi.
JEN: Hi Jo…do you have a minute?
JOEY: That’s just about all I have…I’m already late.
JEN: I’ll make it quick.
DAWSON: Jen wants you to do her a favor.
JEN: Okay thanks Dawson….you can go now.
DAWSON: I can tell when I’m not wanted…I’ll see you girls later. DAWSON WALKS BACK INTO HOUSE. JO AND JEN SIT DOWN ON THE STEPS.
JOEY: So what did you want to talk to me about.
JEN: It’s Jack.
JOEY: Jack?….what sort of favor could I possibly do for you concerning Jack?….I barely know him.
JEN: Yes…but your getting the opportunity to get to know him better…I would kill to be in your shoes.
JOEY: Well what can I do Jen, we already asked Mr. Easterman to switch us and that was a no go.
JEN: I was hoping that you would put in a good word for me with Jack.
JOEY: Sure…I don’t see why not.
JEN: Thanks Jo. I owe you one.
JOEY: Let’s not go overboard with the gratitude…I’m just getting you adate.
JEN: A date with the best looking guy in school….I’d say it’s up there in the really huge favor category.
JOEY: Yeah well…whatever….I really gotta go though….I’ll let you know how it goes.
NEXT SCENE: DAWSON’S KITCHEN/ANDIE, PACEY AND DAWSON ARE EATING BROWNIES.
ANDIE: These brownies are better than sex.
PACEY: Really?….well then in my humble opinion….your doing it wrong.
ANDIE: Do tell…I’m always open to opposing opinions…I should warn you though I’m not much of a book learner…I require visual examples.
PACEY: Somebody pinch me….I must be dreaming.
CUT TO PATTERSON’S HOUSE. JOEY RINGS BELL. JACK ANSWERS DOOR.
JACK: I was beginning to think you weren’t going to show.
JOEY: Sorry, I got held up over at Dawson’s.
JACK: I set up a work station in my room…I hope you don’t mind.
JOEY: Can’t we do our work in the livingroom ?
JACK: Don’t you trust me?
JOEY: I don’t know you…why on earth would I trust you?
JACK: Good point…I really don’t have an answer for that.
JOEY: Look maybe this wasn’t such a good idea….for tonight anyway.
JACK: Joey…I promise you I’m harmless.
JOEY: Harmless?…somehow I doubt that…let’s just skip the convincing arguments and get to the assignment.
JACK: Deal… Follow me. JOEY WALKS BACK TO JACK’S ROOM WITH HIM. AS SHE ENTERS THE ROOM SHE SEES THAT JACK HAS SET UP A PICNIC BLANKET WITH THEIR DINNER ON IT.
JOEY: This seems like a lot of trouble to go to for a study date.
JACK: It really wasn’t any trouble and you have to eat…really I just thought we could spend sometime getting to know each other better.
JOEY: I guess that would be a good idea….this is really kind of sweet of you Jack.
JACK: It’s just in my nature…have a seat I’ll get us something to drink and be right back. JOEY SITS DOWN ON THE BLANKET. JACK COMES BACK WITH A BOTTLE OF CHAMPAGNE AND GLASSES.
JOEY: Is that champagne?
JACK: Yes it is…it is our wedding night after all.
JOEY: Where did you get it from?
JACK: Its my parents…they drink very little…yet every occasion someone gives them a bottle of champagne or wine…go figure.
JOEY: I don’t know if it’s such a good idea for us to drink that.
JACK: They’ll never even notice it’s gone…come on live a little.
JOEY: (considers this) All right…just a little.JACK: That a girl.
JACK POURS A GLASS FOR JOEY AND ONE FOR HIMSELF.
NEXT SCENE: PACEY AND ANDIE ARE WALKING ALONG THE BEACH.
ANDIE: This has been a great day Pacey.
PACEY: Yeah I was beginning to wonder if I would ever have any good fortune….but here you are.ANDIE: You consider me your good fortune?
PACEY: (embarrassed) I…well…it’s just that…
ANDIE: Don’t worry Pacey…I think that’s great…no one has ever thought I was their good fortune before.
PACEY: (looking into Andie’s eyes) You're just so beautiful…why would you want to be here with me?
ANDIE: What happened to the confident man I met earlier….what have you done with Pacey?
PACEY: I’m serious Andie…why me?…why not Dawson or any one of the numerous high school jocks.
ANDIE: Because I like you Pacey….your funny, good looking…great biceps.
PACEY: Well I guess you can’t argue with that logic…come here you. (Pacey pulls Andie in closer for a kiss.)
CUT TO INT. OF JACK’S BEDROOM.
JOEY: (Laughing) So then what did you do?
JACK: I hightailed it out of there…I mean she was cute and all…but definitely not worth dying over.JOEY: So how many girls have you dated?
JACK: Okay enough about me…I’ve been doing most of the talking…tell me something revealing about you.
JOEY: There’s really not much to tell.
JACK: How long have you and Dawson been together? JOEY: Not long…and a lifetime.
JACK: A lifetime?
JOEY: I guess that’s the most revealing thing about me….I’ve loved Dawson for a lifetime.
JACK: I would venture to guess you haven’t dated very many guys then.
JOEY: No, I haven’t…but I haven’t really wanted to….I’ve always wanted to be with Dawson.
JACK: Well Dawson’s certainly a lucky guy…to instill such deep devotion. JACK POURS ANOTHER GLASS OF CHAMPAGNE FOR JOEY.
JOEY: No more Jack…I’m starting to feel a little light-headed.
JACK: Have you ever been tempted to kiss another guy?
JOEY: Actually I’ve kissed two other guys besides Dawson.
JACK: Really? Would this be during Dawson?
JOEY: Not really…well one of them was definitely pre-Dawson.
JACK: And the other one?
JOEY: It’s complicated…I didn’t know where Dawson and I stood.
JACK: So who are the two lucky guys?…anyone I’ve met?
JOEY: Anderson and Pacey….wow I really have had too much to drink to be this honest.
JACK: You kissed Pacey?…isn’t he Dawson’s best friend?
JOEY: Like I said it’s a complicated story….I should probably be going.
JACK: What’s your hurry?
JOEY: I promised Dawson I wouldn’t be too late getting back.
JACK: Isn’t it kind of late to be going back to Dawson’s?
JOEY: Well not that it’s any of your business….but I’m staying over.
JACK: Your staying over….at Dawson’s?
JOEY: Yes….I do quite frequently.
JACK: Well then don’t let me keep you.
JOEY: What is that look?
JACK: What look?
JOEY: That look of male understanding….you’ve got it all wrong…I’ve been sleeping over at Dawson’s house since I was seven….why am I explaining this to you?
JACK: Your guess is as good as mine…what you do with your boyfriend is your business.
JOEY: That’s right it is.
JACK: Well walk safe….do you need an escort?
JOEY: I think I know the way….(Joey stands up then immediately sits back down dizzy) I don’t feel so good.
JACK: Here lie down on the bed and …I’ll go get Dawson.
JOEY: (curling up on bed ) No that’s not a good idea….I don’t want Dawson to see me like this.
JACK: Like what?…you just had a little too much to drink…no big deal. THERE IS A KNOCK ON JACK’S BEDROOM DOOR. JOEY LAYS DOWN ON HIS BED.
JACK: Stay put…it’s probably just my sister. JACK GOES OVER AND ANSWERS DOOR. ANDIE IS STANDING OUTSIDE IT WITH PACEY.
PACEY HAS HIS ARMS WRAPPED AROUND ANDIE.
ANDIE: Hey bro…I just wanted to let you know I was home…(looking into room)What’s going on Jack? ANDIE LOOKS INTO ROOM AND SPIES JOEY. JOEY IS LAYING DOWN ON THE BED. PACEY SPIES JOEY.
PACEY: What’s going on here?…what’s wrong with Jo?
JACK: It’s no big deal she’s just a little drunk.
ANDIE: Drunk?…Jack please tell me you didn’t…what is the matter with you?
JACK: Chill Andrea….it’s not a major catastrophe….I’ll just walk her over to Dawson’s house and everything will be kosher.
ANDIE: Park it smooth operator…Pacey is going to walk her home….you and I need to have a family meeting.
PACEY WALKS OVER TO JOEY AND SITS BY HER ON THE BED.
PACEY: Jo…wake up…It’s time to go back to the big D’s house.
JOEY: (confused) Pacey…what are you doing here?
PACEY: (standing Joey up) Saving your useless butt….Dawson is not going to be happy about this.
JOEY: (worried) Is Dawson here?
PACEY: No…(to Andie) Andie I hate to bag on you…but if I take her to Dawson’ s in this condition….lets just say not such a good idea…I need to take her to her house….I hope you understand.
ANDIE: It’s okay Pacey…I know this isn’t your fault…(gives Jack the evileye)
NEXT SCENE: PACEY IS ROWING JOEY HOME.
PACEY: How are you doing over there?
JOEY: Not so good…I feel like yesterday’s garbage.
PACEY: What happened in there Jo?
JOEY: I don’t know exactly…we were just talking…getting to know each other better.
PACEY: And the champagne?….
JOEY: It was his parents….I guess I drank a little too much.
PACEY: (sarcastic) Really?…you think so?
JOEY: This is no big deal Pacey….stop being so judgmental.
PACEY: I’m not being judgmental Jo…I’m in shock that you still don’t understand what was happening back there..
JOEY: What are you talking about?
PACEY: I’m talking about the seduction scene that Andie and I walked in on.
JOEY: What seduction scene?
PACEY: Soft music…dim lights…champagne….Jo the only thing that was missing were rose petals on the bed.
JOEY: Your wrong Pacey…Jack was a perfect gentleman.
PACEY: Come on Jo be honest with yourself….Jack had an agenda ….I know it …you know it…and Andie’s reaction confirmed it.
JOEY GROANS AND PUTS HER HEAD IN HER HANDS.
NEXT SCENE: JACK AND ANDIE ARE YELLING AT EACH OTHER IN HIS ROOM.
JACK: (shouting) You ruined everything!
ANDIE: I was just protecting Joey!…you never change Jack….don’t you ever wonder what it might be like to be with someone who isn’t wearing a 100 proof perfume on her breath?
JACK: Your acting like I forced her to drink that much…she was perfectly willing.
ANDIE: Willing or not Jack it was wrong and you know it….for a number ofreasons.
JACK: Andrea just because were brother and sister does not give you the right to butt into my life every time I turn around.
ANDIE: It’s for your own good Jack…you’ve got to stop this obsession you have with ruining people’s lives….your starting with a clean slate here…don’ t make the same mistakes.
JACK: Look whose talking…I’m suppose to believe that you didn’t intend to sleep with Pacey tonight.
ANDIE: Don’t turn this around on me Jack…this is about you and Joey….Joey has a boyfriend…a really nice guy who truly loves her…don’t mess that up forher.
JACK: Joey is old enough to make her own decisions….I’m just making her aware of her options…that’s all.
ANDIE: Forget it Jack…your hopeless and as of right now you are on your own…I intend to create a better life for myself here…If your smart…you’ll follow my lead.
DOORBELL RINGS. ANDIE ANSWERS IT. ANDIE: (surprised) Dawson…hi.
DAWSON: Hi Andie…I’m really sorry to come over so late….I was starting to get worried about Jo….can I talk to her?
ANDIE: She didn’t call you? Uh…. She got nauseous when she was here and… went home.
DAWSON: That’s weird why didn’t she just come over to the house…it’s a lot closer.
ANDIE: I really don’t know….sorry Dawson….see you later. ANDIE CLOSES DOOR. WALKS BACK TO JACKS ROOM.
ANDIE: That was Dawson looking for Joey….that is absolutely the last time I lie for you Jackson. (slams door.) JACK LAYS BACK ON BED SMILING TO HIMSELF
NEXT SCENE: CAPESIDE HIGH. DAWSON IS WAITING BY JOEY’S LOCKER. JOEY ENTERS SCHOOL WEARING SUNGLASSES. SHE IS SUFFERING A MAJOR HANGOVER.
DAWSON: (walking over to Joey) Jo…what’s going on?….is everything all right?
JOEY: Fine Dawson….why?
DAWSON: Well hon…I hate to say this but you look like crap.
JOEY: Thanks…I’ll try and return the compliment some day.
DAWSON: I’m serious Jo….you don’t look so hot…..what happened to you lastnight?
AT THAT MOMENT PACEY WALKS UP. PACEY: Good morning all….Joey… you have never looked better.
DAWSON: Take it easy on her Pacey….she’s not feeling well today.
PACEY: You know what they say….you over do it…you suffer through it…..well I gotta jam.
JOEY: Yea I have to go too….I’ll walk with you Pacey. (Joey gives Dawson a kiss) Bye Dawson.
PACEY AND JOEY WALK AWAY LEAVING DAWSON AT HER LOCKER.
JOEY: Ok…so what was that all about?
JOEY: Come on Pacey…..I am so not in the mood to play this game with you.
PACEY: What game might that be?
JOEY: Do you intend to tell Dawson what happened last night or was your plan just to hint him to death?
PACEY: I just think Dawson needs to be in the know….about Jack.
JOEY: Your concern for Dawson is admirable Pacey….but I intended to tell him the truth all along.
PACEY: Here at school?….not a very brainy idea….wait till you get him home…then and only then tell the truth.
JOEY: Your probably right….ignorance is bliss…. JOEY WALKS INTO ENGLISH CLASS SHE SHARES WITH JEN.
JEN: So what happened last night Jo? JOEY: (defensive) What are you talking about…nothing happened.
JEN: Take a sedative Jo….I was referring to you putting in a good word for me with Jack.
JOEY: Oh that…I didn’t get around to it.
JEN: What’s going on Jo?
JOEY: Nothing….everything is fine…..why would you think otherwise?
JEN: Years of experience with hangovers for one.
JOEY: Hangovers?…what are you implying.
JEN: No implications….just an observation…how much did you drink?
JOEY: I’m going with….too much.
JEN: You were drinking with Jack?
JOEY: It appears that way….it’s all a little hazy.
JEN: Does Dawson know?
JOEY: No…I haven’t told him yet…I will though.
JEN: Word of warning Jo….he doesn’t like it when people fall off theirpedestals…
JOEY: So you don’t think I should tell him?
JEN: Tough call….Honesty is such a two edged sword.
DURING CONVERSATION NEITHER JEN OR JOEY HAVE NOTICED ABBY MORGAN EVESDROPPING ON THEIR CONVERSATION.
NEXT SCENE: ABBY IS SITTING AT A TABLE IN THE CAFETERIA WITH DAWSON. THEY ARE DEEP IN CONVERSATION.DAWSON IS OBVIOUSLY UPSET. JOEY WALKS IN AND SEES THEM THEN WALKS OVER TO TABLE.
JOEY: Hey…is everything okay?
ABBY: I was just leaving…later Dawson.
JOEY: What was that all about?
DAWSON: Jo…do you think I’m a fool?
JOEY: What?…no of course not…Did Abby call you a fool?
DAWSON: No actually Abby was being a friend….something I’m beginning to think I have very little of.
JOEY: Dawson …why would you think that?
DAWSON: You did it to me again Joey….didn’t you?
JOEY: Did what to you again…Dawson your rambling.
DAWSON: You lied to me Jo!
JOEY: Lied to you?….is this about Jack?
DAWSON: So you admit it?
JOEY: Dawson…I was going to tell you….I just didn’t think school was the best place to do it….if you don’t believe me ask Pacey.
DAWSON: Pacey knew about this?…Great…am I the only clueless one?
JOEY: Pacey was the one who got me home safe.
DAWSON: Why is it Jo…every time you have a problem you run to Pacey?
JOEY: Dawson….I didn’t run to Pacey….he was there with Andie.
DAWSON: Why didn’t you come to the house…why did you go all the way home?
JOEY: I knew you would be upset…I wasn’t in any shape to deal with you.
DAWSON: Why were you drinking with Jack?
JOEY: I don’t know….we were just getting to know each other since we have to work together.
DAWSON: Do you hear how lame that sounds?….I want to trust you Jo…but your making it so hard….you keep lying to me.
JOEY: It won’t happen again Dawson….I’m sorry.
BEFORE DAWSON CAN ANSWER JACK AND ANDIE WALK INTO THE CAFETERIA. DAWSON GOES OVER TO CONFRONT JACK. DAWSON: (pushes Jack against the wall) Listen carefully cause I am only going to say this once….stay away from Joey….she is my girlfriend….you are not welcome in our relationship.
JACK: Ok….obviously you’ve got some issues with me…lets just talk about them…violence is completely unnecessary.
DAWSON: I’m through talking to you Jack….just back-off of Joey.
JACK: Look man I don’t know what she told you…but she’s got it all wrong….I didn’t pour the alcohol down her throat…she drank it.
DAWSON: Tell me Jack what exactly were you hoping for last night….get Jo drunk…take advantage of her?….you are a sick individual….just leave us alone and everyone will be happy.
JACK: I can’t do that man….she may be your girlfriend….but she’s my wife.
DAWSON: It’s a class Jack….jump back to reality.
JACK: And I can’t pass that class without her.
DAWSON: Maybe you should have thought of that last night….before you tried to take advantage of her.
JACK: Look Dawson….I don’t know where you got your 411 but I was not trying to take advantage of Joey….we had a few drinks that’s all….nothing happened.
DAWSON: Much to your disappointment.JOEY WALKS UP TO JACK AND DAWSON.
JOEY: Stop it Dawson…I can fight my own battles.
JACK: Come on Jo…tell him I didn’t touch you.
JOEY: I am not really concerned with vindicating you Jack…Dawson please let ’s go now.DAWSON AND JOEY WALK AWAY. ANDIE WALKS UP TO JACK.
ANDIE: That’s gotta be a record…second day in a new school and already people hate you.
JACK: Mind your own business….tramp.JACK WALKS AWAY. NEXT SCENE: OUTSIDE OF CAFETERIA. ABBY WALKS OVER TO JACK AT HIS LOCKER.
ABBY: Looks like you’ve made some real enemies….I’d still like to be yourfriend.
JACK: Thanks for the offer Abby but I’m really not in the market for a new friend….I like being a loner.
ABBY: Well that explains your self-destructive actions….Joey Potter?…really Jack you could do so much better.
JACK: I gotta go Abby or I’ll be late for third period.
ABBY: Face the truth Jack…you want Joey because she’s off limits….you like the bad boy image….when your ready for a available women….look me up (Abby walks away)
JACK WALKS INTO CLASS AND GETS EVIL LOOKS FROM JOEY, DAWSON, ANDIE AND PACEY. SITS DOWN NEXT TO JOEY.
JACK: Jo….could we please talk later?
JOEY: No…and only my friends call me Jo….got it.
JACK: This is ridiculous Jo….ey…..we are stuck working on this project together….can’t we at least try to get along.
JOEY: I’ll work with you Jack…because I have no choice….but we will not be friends….it’s too late for that.
NEXT SCENE: DAWSON AND JOEY ARE WALKING HOME FROM SCHOOL.
DAWSON: How late are you working tonight?
JOEY: I have to close…why?
DAWSON: Jen is suppose to come over to work on our project chart for class….but I think we really need to talk…sort some things out.
JOEY: I’ll try to get away as early as I can….Bessie hired another waitress and I’m stuck training her.
DAWSON: Sounds like it might be kind of a late night.
JOEY: It could be but I’ll come over as soon as I’m done.
DAWSON: Will you stay over?
JOEY: I’d really like that….if you don’t mind.
DAWSON: I need you to stay….I feel sort of disconnected from you right now.
JOEY: I guess I had that coming.
DAWSON: Jo…I didn’t mean…
JOEY: No…it’s okay Dawson….I’ve got to get to work…I’ll see you tonight. (gives Dawson a kiss on the lips before leaving)
PACEY WALKS UP BEHIND DAWSON AS JOEY WALKS DOWN THE DOCK.
PACEY: Hey slugger I heard about the scene with Jack in the caf…..I hope he has good medical insurance.
DAWSON: As usual Pacey the rumor mill has greatly exaggerated the incident….I didn’t hit him….I just gave him a friendly warning.
PACEY: About Jo?
DAWSON: Yes about Jo….which by the way…why didn’t you stop her fromdrinking?
PACEY: I wasn’t there when they were drinking….I came in when she was already passed out on the bed…but even if I had been…I am not your girlfriend’s keeper.
DAWSON: But you are her friend…right?
PACEY: Yes….but after everything that’s happened and all the misunderstandings….I find it best to keep my distance….if at all possible.
DAWSON: What do you think Jack was trying to prove?
PACEY: According to Andie…Jack has always gone after the unavailable ones….he likes the challenge.
DAWSON: So it doesn’t matter to him that she’s my girlfriend?
ANDIE HAS WALKED UP BEHIND DAWSON AS HE AND PACEY ARE TALKING. ANDIE: Not in the least….Jack may be my brother but he’s also a jerk where girls are concerned.
DAWSON: (turns around surprised) Andie…I didn’t know you were there.
ANDIE: I came over to tell you that I’m really sorry about what Jack isdoing.
DAWSON: It’s not your fault…doesn’t matter anyway it’s over now.
ANDIE: Actually Dawson….if I know Jack…and I do….it’s just started.
DAWSON: Just started?…..could you clarify that statement for me?
ANDIE: Jack is not a quitter….his obsession with Joey is only going to get worse…..he’s going to continue to pursue her….until he gets her…..then and only then will he give up.
PACEY SPOTS JEN WALKING OVER
PACEY: Sounds a lot like a hopeless situation….could say…another girl…get Jack’s mind off Jo?
ANDIE: Not likely…but it’s worth a try….did you have anyone particular inmind?
PACEY: What about Jen?
DAWSON: Pacey…that’s ridiculous….I would never ask Jen to do that…
JEN WALKS UP TO THE GROUP AND OVERHEARS THIS STATEMENT. JEN: Never ask me to do what?
PACEY: Go out with Jack….get his mind off of Joey.
JEN: Sorry….but I happen to know from personal experience….that it’s not easy to get a guy’s mind off of Joey.
DAWSON: I would never ask you to do that anyway….are you ready to do our homework assignment?
JEN: That’s why I’m here.
DAWSON: Let’s go inside then….Thanks for the information Andie….I feel better knowing your looking out for us.
NEXT SCENE: S.S. ICEHOUSE. JOEY WALKS INTO THE KITCHEN. BESSIE IS OUTSIDE THE DOOR TALKING TO SOMEONE.
JOEY: Hey, Bessie…I’m here….what tables are mine tonight?
BESSIE: I’ll be right there Jo….go see if Bodie needs anything?
JOEY: Hey Bodie…..mmm, that smells good.
BODIE: I’m trying a new clam chowder recipe….want to taste?
JOEY: You bet…(Joey dips a spoon into the chowder takes bite)
BESSIE: Jo…this is our new waiter.
JOEY: (turns around with spoon still in mouth) Jack?
BESSIE: You two know each other?
JOEY: Yes…Bessie could I please have a word with you….in private? BESSIE AND JOEY WALK OUTSIDE.BESSIE: What’s wrong Jo?
JOEY: Bessie you can’t hire Jack to work here.
BESSIE: Excuse me for seeming naïve but ….why not?
JOEY: It’s a long story….he’s trouble Bessie. BESSIE: That may be Jo….but he’s the first person with any real restaurant experience that has applied in a long time….plus he’s willing to work cheap.
JOEY: And why exactly do you think that is?
BESSIE: I don’t know Jo…all I know is we need help….you’ve been begging me to hire someone else so you could cut back on your hours.
JOEY: I know Bessie….I’m just not so sure Jack is the answer.
NEXT SCENE: DAWSON’S ROOM JEN AND DAWSON ARE STUDYING.
JEN: So are you going to tell me what’s bugging you….or do I play twenty questions?
DAWSON: I’m sorry Jen….I know I haven’t been much help tonight….it’s this thing with Joey and Jack.
JEN: What are you worried about….Joey wants you…not Jack.
DAWSON: I know…still I just want her to keep her distance from him.
JEN: Don’t you trust Jo?
DAWSON: Yes….but repercussions from the whole Pacey incident still pass through my thoughts now and then….and she lied to me about last night.
JEN: She didn’t lie….she avoided the truth till circumstances were more appropriate.DAWSON: I’ll never really know that now will I…Abby fixed that.
JEN: Trust me Dawson….she intended to tell you the truth.
NEXT SCENE: S.S. ICEHOUSE. JOEY IS SHOWING JACK AROUND.
JOEY: (showing table chart to Jack) The tables will be divided up evenly…since we usually only have one or possibly two other waitresses working at the same time….outside tables are usually more labor intensive…(looks at Jack)
JACK: You have the most intense eyes…
JOEY: Pay attention Jack…I would like to leave here sometime in thiscentury.
JACK: What are you saying?
JOEY: I’m saying you are purposely making this take forever….and I have plans tonight.
JACK: With big bad Dawson?
JOEY: As I was saying….the outside tables are usually more labor intensive…and Bessie is okay with you starting closing procedures about a half hour before we shut down the grill….
JACK: What exactly is it about me that you don’t like?
JOEY: Everything….you are egotistical, selfish and all-around irritating.
JACK: So much for my good qualities….
JOEY: Tell me Jack….Why are you here?
JACK: At the Icehouse?
JOEY: Yes, …..what made you apply here?
JACK: Oh I get it…..don’t flatter yourself….I only applied here because I needed a job.
JOEY: (sarcastic) Really?….there are other restaurants you know.
JACK: Yes I know….but in asking around I was told this was the best…..I only want the best.
JOEY: Look Jack….you have managed quite successfully to integrate yourself into every aspect of my life….I want to know why.
JACK: You want the truth?
JOEY: Sure try something new.
JACK: I like you Joey…..I want to get to know you better.
JOEY: And how were you planning on doing that….because so far all you’ve done is drive a wedge between me and Dawson……or was that your plan?
JACK: No that was just a bonus….I would never take advantage of you…..you have to believe me.
JOEY: Well…I don’t……Pacey was pretty convincing in his critique of the scene he and Andie walked in on.
PACEY: Pacey?….what exactly did Pacey have to say?
PACEY AND ANDIE WALKED IN THE SS ICEHOUSE AFTER A WALK ON THE BEACH.
PACEY: Hey Jo……is it too late for some weary beach walkers to get some fries….what is he doing here?
ANDIE: Jack?….this is your new job?….working with Joey?
PACEY: Your kidding right?….man don’t you ever give up?
JACK: Give up?….look sport I’m just making a living.PACEY PULLS JOEY ASIDE.
PACEY: Jo, when Dawson finds out Jack is working here….and he will….he is going to have a mental meltdown…..followed by an act that could very easily have him sharing a cell with daddy.
JOEY: I know Pacey….it’s not like I invited Jack to share my life.
PACEY: He is obsessed with you Jo….we have to do something about this.
JOEY: I am all ears….tell me what to do and I will gladly oblige.

JACK: I work here.
DAWSON: You what?
JACK: I’m sorry….once again for the hard headed one….(speaks slowly) I work here.
DAWSON: Joey….this is not funny….what is going on?
JOEY: Bessie hired him….I didn’t know until tonight.
DAWSON: You’ve been working with him all night?
JOEY: Yes Dawson…but it’s not like that…..I was training him….I told you Bessie was having me train the new waitress.
DAWSON: Right waitress….not waiter….the same waiter who just happens to be your drinking buddy from last night….the same waiter who wants you.
JOEY: Dawson….Jack does not want me.
JACK: Yes I do.
JOEY: (glares at Jack) Fine then….I don’t want Jack.
DAWSON: I don’t know how much more of this I can take. (walks out oficehouse)

ANDIE: Let me….I think I can help him.
ANDIE WALKS OUTSIDE….SEES DAWSON SITTING ON THE DOCK AND WALKS OVER TO HIM.
ANDIE: Mind if I join you?
DAWSON: I’m not really very good company right now.
ANDIE: I don’t mind….I think we need to talk.
DAWSON: Look….I know you aren’t responsible for your brother’s behavior.
ANDIE: That’s not why I came down here Dawson….I came down here to tell you that….your letting him win.
ANDIE: Every time you let him get to you….he gains ground….every time you leave Joey alone….he fills the vacancy.
DAWSON: I just didn’t know what to do…..I mean he obviously has this script memorized by heart….everything he knows….I’m just learning.
ANDIE: I know….but my advice to you is learn your part quick….Jack isn’t wasting any time.
INT. OF ICEHOUSE/JOEY WALKS OVER TO JACK.
JOEY: Are you completely happy now?
JACK: Why is it every time you have a spat with your boy you blame me?
JOEY: Possibly because….it’s always your fault.
JACK: Well are we almost done here?….I’m getting kind of tired and I need my beauty sleep.JOEY: Were done…for now….this conversation is far from over though.
JACK: I look forward to the next time we meet…..Josephine.
JACK WALKS INTO DAWSON AS HE IS WALKING OUT.
DAWSON: Leaving so soon?
JACK: Well if it isn’t Mr. Major over reactor.
DAWSON: You think I’m over reacting?
JACK: Absolutely….but maybe your worried the same thing will happen with me and Jo…that happened with her and Pacey. (Jack walks out the door)
ANDIE: What was he talking about?
DAWSON: It’s a long story.
JOEY: Dawson….I’m glad you came back…..I’ll be ready to go in a few minutes.
DAWSON: Take your time.
JOEY: Are you okay?

JOEY: You mean Jack?
DAWSON: Yes…he has no qualms about trying to seduce you.
JOEY: It doesn’t matter Dawson….you can only be seduced if you choose to be….I am completely loyal to you.
DAWSON: According to Andie….Jack has a very high success rate with seducing young impressionable women.
JOEY: Dawson…believe me when I say. I have a mind of my own.
DAWSON: It’s just that…(Joey interrupts)

ANDIE: Maybe….but my take on the situation is ….Dawson is a romantic…a believer …a dreamer…am I very far off?
PACEY: No…you hit the bullseye…but why are these bad things?
ANDIE: Because Pacey…you should know this one….a girl needs passion and fire…Jack has that in spades….I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen him succeed in breaking up what appeared to be a perfect couple.
