Favourite lines
Joey: Do you know why I didn't go to France, Dawson? Because I wanted to go. So badly. I mean, in France I could have started over. I wouldn't be Joey, the waitress. Or Joey, the daughter of a convict. Or Joey, the white trash girl on the creek. Or Joey, half of the "will they or won't they" couple of the century. I didn't go to France because it seemed like the easy way out. The easiest escape from my life, which in spite of a few highlights is pretty pathetic. And I didn't want to take the easy way out, because I figured that sticking around here would make me stronger. That I would learn more here, and in the midst of life's little tragedies I would grow. And there was you, too. Dawson Leery, who finally got a clue. And it seemed like no matter what else happened, I would be secure in that. But I have to tell you, Dawson, as complicated as our friendship was, it doesn't even compare to how complicated whatever you and I have here is bound to be. And never in my life has taking the easy way out seemed like exactly what I need to do.
Dawson: Look, Joe. Maybe you and I will never be easy. But that doesn't mean we won't be scorching.
Joey: And what happens if we're not? Do we lose everything? The relationship and the friendship? What are we left with then?
Dawson: I don't know. And, you know what, I don't care, Joe. For the first time in my life, I don't care if I completely understand it. I don't need to deconstruct it until it crumbles into nothing. I just know that it's a step I'd like to take. With my best friend. You belong here, Joey. Not in France, in Capeside. With me.

Andie: Oh my God, officer I'm so sorry. I didn't even see you pull out. I mean I did see you pull out, but it was so fast, that. (Pacey grunts) Oh God, I just got my license. Please, be kind.
Pacey: I'm gonna have to see that license and registration little miss. Andie McPhee. Rhode Island drivers license.
Andie: Yes sir, you see my family just moved to town. We live over in Windsor.
Pacey: (Laughs) Country club.
Andie: Yes, is that a problem?
Pacey: Do you realize the severity of what you've done here. Hmm, do you. Sitting behind the wheel of a very powerful automobile is a huge responsibility. One little mistake, and you could run over a cat, a child, a nun.

Awe, I adored this season. It was fantastic. I love how the storylines had built up by the end of the season and by by 'Reunited' everyone was friends. Contrary to popular belief I loved the show more when everyone was happy and the best of friends rather then when they hated each other.

Let me just post this scene from 'Uncharted Waters' because it it brillant:

*Cut to the four girls sitting on Dawson's bed watching "Good Will Humping". They're making disgusted/laughing/surprised faces.*

Abby: You are aware that where this tape begins, Dawson finished.

Andie: Finished what?

Jen: Shaking hands with the other boy.

Joey: Waxing the bald-headed bishop.

Abby: Test-firing the missile.

Andie: Okay, I got your point guys.

*they watch the TV. Joey turns her head.*

Joey: How does she do that?

Andie: I'm not that limber.

Jen: Where do these women come from?

*They all scream.*

Jen: What sort of career is this?!

Abby: Hey! Getting paid for something, you're good at... something they love. Hey Jen, in a couple of years, that could be you!

*Joey and Abby laugh*

Jen: You know what, that's really not funny.

Joey: I didn't say anything.

*Gail enters the door.*

Gail: Hey ladies!

*Andie jumps off and shuts of the television.*

Gail: Whatcha watchin'?

Andie: Um, nothing. Um, we're watching an educational video for school, it's, um, we're studying human anatomy!

Abby: No, it's a porno we borrowed from Dawson's video collection!

*Andie's eyes get huge.*

Abby: Mrs. Leery, you have to face the music. Your son is a pervert! What! I'm not going to lie. Unlike some people, I do have morals.

Gail: I think we should leave poor Dawson's room, don't you?

I just love the fact that they bonded over a porno, it's very hilarious in so many ways.

^:lmao: That scene cracks me up Brit!

One of my fave season 2 moments has to be Officer Pacey! It was such a cute meeting for Pacey and Andie.

Brighter Than Sunshine 02-28-2007 09:26 PM

^ I remeber the first time I saw that, I was all like, "He totally just checked out her ass." I was 13 at the time so I was in shock. Awe, the innocence. :lol:

-Kelly- 02-28-2007 11:41 PM

I'm now watching season 2 eps.
I thought it was funny how Andie thought Pacey was a Cop, and gets the message when he's at high school, talking about Andie :lol:

myla84 03-01-2007 07:20 AM

It's definitely my favorite season, with the arrival of Andie and Jack. I just love Pacey/Andie meeting, she looks so impressed by him, well by whom she thinks he is,and there is no doubt he checked her out.

andre silva 03-01-2007 11:44 AM

Season 2 Its My Favourite season , i really like this season all the characters are so great on that season , and i really love jen ´s hair.

Ms X 03-01-2007 12:32 PM

Season Two is my favourite for the reason that is Dawson/Joey :love:

I loved the relationship starting off and progressing. I also liked the way the split was done and how Dawson easily won her back. I didn't always agree with Joey's reasoning behind the split and why she pulled away but it made sense at times.
Some gorgeous, gorgeous D/Jo scenes in this season:sigh:

It was great to see new characters introduced. Andie and Jack were a breath of fresh air and Pacey/Andie was just so good to watch. I love how Pacey is always there for her in her time of need...what a pity he couldn't do this with Joey but hey ho.

barbeegurl00 03-01-2007 02:05 PM

My appreciation for this season comes for the way the character of Pacey progressed. While he was my favorite character from the pilot on (Joey being a close second), in season two, he got better, more central storylines, as opposed to being a "sidekick" with side stories. His charm became even more apparent, and though I always liked his relationship with Tamara and knew he was a great boyfriend, he really started showing his tender side here with Andie.

Though I don't really like the character of Andie, I do appreciate hers and Pacey's relationship here. It saved this season for me, in a way, as their relationship really constrasted with the D/Jo off-and-on stuff, which was very quickly turning me off the show. Had Pacey not been so wonderful, I would never have watched past this.


I love how Pacey is always there for her in her time of need...what a pity he couldn't do this with Joey but hey ho.
I don't understand... he was alway there for Joey, in every season. :confused:

Ms X 03-01-2007 02:22 PM


I don't understand... he was alway there for Joey, in every season.
No he wasn't and certainly not in every season. Seasons 1 and 2, they barely communicated except for a few witty barbs.

Pacey wasn't there for her in Season 4, he laughed at her when Joey said she was fourth and obviously had a real struggle with that. Yes Pacey had his own failures etc but he could have learnt to put Joey first. There were numerous other occasions as well. I don't wanna make this into a PJ V DJ war though so I will say no more :) This is to discuss Season 2.

CookieMonster 03-01-2007 04:05 PM

No fighting now peoples! :nono: We all have our opinions on couples, that's what the shipper threads are for. :D

Let's just stick to season 2 discussions.

One of the things I like about this seson is it was a growing season for everybody. I agree with barb that Pacey did come into his character more. Became more than a sidekick. Joey started to realize she needed to find out who she was herself without obsessing over Dawson. Jack realized who he was if you know what I mean.

Thank you Joshuazgirl!! Seriously guys we opened these season threads mainly so we can have more group discussions on the board, the last thing we want is upset posters so please just share your thoughts on the storylines and characters and try to have fun discussions, i get we all have our ships but lets not bring ship vs. ship into these threads. Thanks guys :)

Ms X 03-01-2007 05:14 PM

Oops sorry guys, got carried away...:embarrassment:

Pacey was great in this season. He moved from being 'the sidekick' to a more central character. Andie was so good for him, made him believe in himself. Love Pandie :love:

Brighter Than Sunshine 03-01-2007 06:00 PM

I loved the Dawson/Pacey scenes in this season. I was one of the people who was hurt by the way their friendship went towards the end of the series. I always loved how Dawson was there for Pacey and vise versa. It made me realize that friendships are just as important as romantic relationships.

One scene that comes to mind is this one, and it's pretty damn ironic that their watching a Tom Cruise movie. :lmao:

*Dawson's room - Pacey is watching "Jerry Maguire" (he's suspended, you know)*

Jerry: *on TV* I'm starting a new company. The fish will come with me. You can call me sentimental...

*Dawson walks in*

Dawson: Dawson Leery, personal homework carrier, has arrived. Apparently, just in time for a private screening in his home theater.

Pacey: Dawson, when my suspension is over tomorrow, I'll go back home, but until then, I'm willing to risk you getting sick of me for invading your personal domain because hiding out here and alienating the hell out of torture and death in the hands of my father at home.

Dawson: Well, I'm happy to help. I'm just saying that I will be happy when my room returns to it's original owner...and odor. So...Jerry Maguire again, huh?

Pacey: Yeah, I'm running it on a continuous loop. It speaks to my current situation as a renegade moral crusader. So...what's new in the land of higher education?

Dawson: Well, pretty much the same old plus the ol' sexual identity crisis.

Pacey: How is Jack?

Dawson: Well, he seems okay. He's kind of keeping a low profile.

Pacey: And, uh...Joey?

Dawson: She's fine.

Pacey: Uh...Andie?

Dawson: Um..last I heard she had run off to Bali with a Brazilian soap star named Diego. I hear she's very happy, though, and tan. Would you just call her, you idiot? I can't believe you've let a week go by without even talking to her.

Pacey: Dawson, it's not that easy, okay? Andie thinks I'm responsible for dragging another McPhee scandal through the school quarters and I think she was being short-sided and selfish and insensitive so right now, we're at an impass.

Dawson: No, last week you were at an impass. Right now, you're just in avoidance.

*Pacey sighs and Dawson sits down.*

Dawson: Right now, she's hurting and you care about her, Pacey. Just...apoligize. Swallow your pride and get your girlfriend back.

Pacey: I don't want to apoligize to her, Dawson! I stood up for something that I believed in and I was right! I mean, look at my man Jerry, here. His mission statement. He took a stand.

Dawson: And he lost everything. He had to beg, grovel, and crawl to get it all back. And he was not sleeping on his best friend's floor.

Pacey: I thought you said I could have the bed tonight.

Dawson: I don't think so.

Pacey: Joey gets the bed.

Dawson: *laughs* Don't go there.

And lets face it, one of the greatest scenes ever in the history of television is when Dawson and Andie sing the blues. :lmao:

Emily 03-01-2007 06:15 PM

Liz, its fine, don't even worry about it :hug:

Awww Brit I love that scene!!! those two have some great scenes this season makes me all nostalgic for the friendship era :love:
