True Love {Pacey/Joey}#481: Their Chemistry Drew Us In From the Beginning.

W e l c o m e t o t h e
Pacey Witter & Joey Potter
A p p r e c i a t i o n T h r e a d

Their Story

Since a very young age, Dawson, Joey and Pacey had been very close friends. Dawson and Joey were perhaps especially close, and as they got older, this close friendship began to develop into a romantic involvement. Meanwhile, Pacey and Joey's relationship became one characterized by playful banter and merciless teasing. Despite these hostile appearances, however, Pacey and Joey often seemed more alike than they thought themselves to be. With Joey firmly established as Dawson's soulmate, and Pacey firmly placed by Dawson's side as his underdog-ish sidekick, a romantic relationship was out of the picture (or at most, acknowledged only as a catalyst for the ballad of Dawson and Joey.

In their junior year of high school, the dynamics of this delicate triangle shifted. After Dawson and Joey's relationship came to an end, Dawson became interested in pursuing other objects of affection, leaving Joey heartbroken. Pacey, sent on behalf of Dawson, offers what he can to comfort her. When Pacey is also left heartbroken by his own first love, the two begin to develop a sincere friendship, beyond just bantering, and beyond just a mutual attachment to Dawson. At the same time, Pacey begins to work on fixing up a boat, which he decides to name "True Love." After his first heartbreak, Pacey decides that the idea of True Love is unattainable, and so names his boat after it.

As the two of them start spending more time together, Pacey makes the painful discovery that he has fallen for, as he puts it, the worst person he could possibly ever fall for. Rather than make any huge declarations, Pacey stands quietly by, defending her honour when her mural is defaced, and buying her a wall to challenge her to meet her potential. When Joey gets her heart broken again by an older college boy, she calls on Pacey to help her and bring her home. She tells Pacey that he and Dawson are the only two people who really know her. At this point, Pacey decides he can't stand quietly by any more, and demands that Joey confront her feelings by kissing her. After several outbursts and conflicts about consequences, as well as hopeless denials, Joey finally acknowledges her more than platonic feelings for Pacey. The real challenge, though, is how the two of them are going to break the news to their good friend Dawson, who has finally decided he's ready to have Joey become a special part of his life again. When he finds out, the friendship the three of them had is torn apart. Pacey and Joey attempt to reject their feelings for each other, but it proves exceedingly difficult, and when Dawson recognizes this, he sends Joey to explore her feelings for Pacey. Joey catches Pacey just as he is about to sail the True Love out for the summer. She joins him and the two sail off into the sunset.

Over their senior year, Pacey and Joey go through the ups and downs of their relationship. It is always evident that they both care very deeply about each other, but things like their insecurities and future goals begin to cause problems. Despite these problems, the two become very close, and what was thought by some to be a simple, passing interest gradually becomes one of the most significant (if not the most significant) relationship in both of their lives. Joey, who had always thought her first time would be with her best friend Dawson, takes that step with Pacey. Eventually, Pacey's insecurities about Dawson and especially himself become too much, and he explodes at Joey during their senior prom. After some cooling off and a great deal of regret over what was said, they both realize that what is left of their relationship cannot be maintained through their quickly diverging paths, and that what is best for both of them is some time apart, even though they both still love and miss each other.

Over the next year, the two are slowly able to rebuild their friendship. They both explore other relationships. Joey with her professor, Eddie, and Pacey with Joey's roommate, Audrey. When Joey learns about Pacey and her roommate, she finds herself in a similar situation that the one she and Pacey put Dawson in year ago. Rather than oppose the pairing, however, she takes the higher road and gives them their blessing. It soon becomes clear, even to Audrey, and Pacey and Joey are not over each other.

As more time goes by, Pacey begins to admit to himself (and at one point, to an intoxicated Joey) that he never did get over her. Despite their diverging paths, they still managed to stay directed towards each other. After spending a night alone, locked in a K-mart, Pacey gives Joey a sincere professing of his feelings; that he has always loved her, but rather than force her to make any difficult decisions, he has just accepted his feelings as a fact of life. Joey asks for some time to think about what to do next, to which Pacey obliges. Soon after, the two begin enjoying each other's company at dinner, and situations of a date-like quality. Pacey even hires Joey as a temporary assistant for him, which turns out to be disastrous when the pent up sexual tension between them manifests itself in embarrassing grope-fests in his office. Pacey tells her that he needs to fire her, for his concentration's sake, but the two agree to spend more time together outside work. They then face another obstacle: the return of Eddie. While Pacey is certain about wanting to reunite with Joey, Joey is less sure. When she tells him about Eddie, he is heartbroken, and the two part ways once again.

Five years later, after the two have settled into their separate paths, Joey returns to Capeside to visit her old friends. She has left her relationships with Dawson and Pacey both unsettled and decides that she will make her decision once and for all. But more than that, she has always known who she has wanted to be with, but instead of being brave enough to make that decision, she has always fled. Pacey tells Joey that he understands if her decision doesn't include himself, because the simple act of being in love with her is enough for him. But Joey does not want to run from her choice any longer. She chooses Pacey, and the two watch the televised incarnations of their little trio together, in the final scene of the series.

Top 10 Songs

One Sweet Love - Sara Bareilles
Sleepless nights you creep inside of me
Paint your shadows on the breath that we share

This Years Love - David Gray

You're all I need

The meaning of my life is she.

You are the best one, of the best ones

And you can no longer see
Just let my love throw a spark
And have a little faith in me

I don't believe that anybody feels
The way I do about you now

You're gonna be the one that saves me
And after all
You're my wonderwall
Head Over Feet - Alanis Morissette
You've already won me over in spite of me
And don't be alarmed if I fall head over feet
Don't be surprised if I love you for all that you are

Top 5 Quotes

The Anti-Prom - 3x22

... Must Come To An End - 6x24
... The simple act of being in love with you is enough for me. So you're off the hook.
You know what? For the record, I-- I don't want to be let off the hook.

A Winter's Tale - 4x14
You kissed me first, sweetheart.

Top 5 Kisses

Stolen Kisses - 3x19
I love that Joey finally is able to share her true feelings for Pacey in this moment.
Pacey has shown how he feels about her, and Joey reciprocates the feelings by
kissing him for the first time, allowing them to open up to each other. - Jamie

All Good Things.. - 6x23
Both of them seemed so affected by it, and the kiss on the cheek
Pacey gives her afterwards is so full of hazy lust. - Claire

Cinderella Story/Neverland - 3x17/18
This was Pacey's final attempt to win Joey's heart, and this time he was
determined, so he went for it. And I love it because it was Joey's first
surrender. And we see it in her eyes…the beginning of true love. - Romina

A Winter's Tale - 4x14
This scene is so memorable. You know, after Joey finally being able to go
with Pacey on True Love for the summer, and them having such an amazing
relationship.. the word sex eventually started screaming their names. When it
finally happens you're almost in disbelief.. he's brushing her hair, and then all
of a sudden she's explaining why she's finally ready. Amazing moment. - Ally

Coming Home - 4x01
At the end of 'True Love', we got to see Pacey and Joey ride off into the sunset, happy
and together. That kiss we saw at the end of "Coming Home" was what we didn't get
to see while they were on the boat... happiness, togetherness, connecting with one
another, and a realization that they fit and were made to last... no matter what. - Ali

From the moment that they locked eyes on the dock, Joey with glowering animosity and the pain of rejection and Pacey with a sincere desire to help, the true and never-ending love between them was cast in stone.

There was an indescribable quality about them which made them special. Their love could be torrid but it was never indestructible; even when they were apart, their hearts always complimented one another and, as a fan, you knew that they could never be away from one another for long. They sacrificed and fought for one another but what would seem like struggles for any other couple were simply obstacles that Pacey and Joey could overcome, together, and only served to help them build a stronger bond.

Simply said, Pacey and Joey were, and remain to this day, the epitome of epic love. - Beth

Top 10 Moments

The Anti-Prom - 3x22
[Joey walks over to the table where Pacey is sitting alone. He has his back to her so he doesn't notice.]
Joey: I've been meaning to ask you something all night, Pacey. Would you like to dance with me?
[She takes his hand. He looks at her hand in his for a moment.]
Pacey: Yes.
[They move out to the floor and begin to dance.]
Pacey: How come this feels so right?
Joey I think it was those dance lessons.
[They both smile. He notices her earrings and touches them.]
Pacey: Where did you get those? They're not you.
Joey: Why, because I'm just a poor tom boy, or because Dawson gave them to me?
Pacey: Neither.
[He raises her hand with the bracelet on it and caresses it softly.]
Pacey: See this? This is you. It's not showy or gaudy. It's simple. Elegant. Beautiful.
[She's taken aback.]
Joey It's my mom's bracelet.
Pacey: I know.
Joey: How do you know?
Pacey: Well, because you told me. Six months ago.
[He rubs her arm.]
Pacey: You were wearing that blue sweater with the snowflakes that you have. You were walking down the hallways at school.
I was annoying you as per usual. You said, 'Look, Pacey, I just found my mother's bracelet this morning, so why don't you
cut me some slack?'
[She's happily surprised.]
Joey: You remember that?
Pacey: I remember everything.
[They dance cheek to cheek now as he rubs her back. She is affected by his touch and sways gently with him.]

A Winter's Tale - 4x14
[In the cabin at the resort - Joey is standing in front of the mirror brushing her hair. Pacey walks in.]
Joey: Hey.
Pacey: Hi. May I?
Joey: Sure.
[She hands it to him and he begins to brush her hair.]
Joey: Hey Pace?
Pacey: Yeah?
Joey: Do you still have your wallet?
[He kisses her hand.]
Pacey: I thought we were done talking about that?
[She takes the brush away from him.]
Joey: We are.
Pacey: Okay.
[He pulls his out his wallet, wrapping his arms around the front of her. He opens it and grabs the condom.]
Pacey: You want to throw it away?
[She takes it from him.]
Joey: I want to throw the wrapper away.
Pacey: If this was about what I was—
Joey: Pacey… this is about how you carried my bag off the bus yesterday. This is about how when we go to the movies and
you go and you buy popcorn, you always be sure you bring back a napkin so I don't wipe all the grease on my jeans.
And this is about how just last week when we were at miniature golf you took all of the shots first so I would know
the correct path.
[She unbuttons his shirt. He sucks his breath in lightly.]
Pacey: Well, that's just—
Joey: You taught me how to drive. And last year at prom, you knew that the bracelet I was wearing was my mom's. You
kissed me first sweetheart.
[She pushes the shirt off of his shoulders.]
Joey: The second time you counted to 10 before doing it again, just in case I wanted to stop you.
[She kisses his hand.]
Joey: You bought me a wall.
Pacey: I didn't buy it so much as I—
Joey: We were alone on a boat for three months and you understood without a word why I wasn't ready.
[She takes off his undershirt.]
Joey: Do you have to ask me now why I am?
[He brushes her hair out of her eyes. They hold each others hands and caress.]
Joey: Pace, I'm going to count to ten… and then I'm going to start kissing you. If you don't want me to… you're just going
to have to stop me.
[They stare into each others eyes. She runs her hand up his arm and places it on his chest.]
Joey: Ten, my love.
[They kiss each other, all over. He carries her towards te bed and she makes a happy sigh as it fades to black and they
have sex for the first time together.]

True Love - 3x23
[At the docks near the True Love - Joey is running as fast as she can, frantically looking for Pacey.]
Joey: Pacey! Pacey! Pacey! Pacey!
[She looks for him on the boat but he's not there.]
Joey: Pace? Pacey!
[He comes from around the pier.]
Pacey: You want something, Jo?
Joey: I want to talk to you!
Pacey: No, nope. It's a bit late for this now. I'm leaving, you can't stop me, so don't even try.
Joey: No, that's not why I'm here.
[He climbs aboard True Love.]
Pacey: So why are you here? Maybe you want to rub it in a little bit, huh?
[He jumps off the boat and unties it from the dock.]
Joey: Look, I don't want to stop you, Pacey. And I don't want to stop Dawson, and I don't want to be stopped. Not by either of
you, not by anyone. See, I mean, that's what this whole year's been about. We've been trying to stop each other from
moving on and from growing up. But not you. You're different. And you've challenged me every step of the way and
you've been there every step of the way.
[He walks past her.]
Pacey: Jo, departure time is in T-minus thirty seconds, so if there's a point, I suggest you get to it.
Joey: I think I'm in love with you.
[His back is towards Joey.]
Pacey: You think or you know?
Joey: I know.
[He turns to look at her.]
Joey: I've known it since the moment you kissed me and maybe even before that. And as scary as it is, I don't want to deny
it anymore, Pacey. I don't want to run from it and I don't want to let it run from me.
Pacey: So… what are we going to do here, Jo?
Joey: I want to come with you.
Pacey: What? Are you crazy?
Joey: I want to stop standing still, I want to move forward, I want to come with you.
Pacey: What about Bessie and the B&B? They need you.
Joey: Not as much as I need you, Pacey.
[He smiles at her, she smiles back. She starts to get on the boat but he stops her.]
Pacey: Uh uh uh uh!
[She smiles and raises her hand up to his.]
Joey: Permission to come aboard?
Pacey: Permission granted.
[He takes her hand and she climbs aboard. They kiss.]
Pacey: You can swim, can't you?
Joey: Of course. I'm kinda worried about the next change of clothes.
[She sits and he gets the boat going.]
Pacey: Nothing to worry about. We're gonna hit the next port in a few days.
Joey: A few days?
Pacey: Yeah. Or a few days after that.
[Joey watches as Pacey steers them off into the sunset on the True Love.]

Stolen Kisses - 3x19
[Joey walks out through Aunt Gwen's yard and up to Pacey who is sitting in front of a fire. She takes a seat next to him.]
Pacey: You don't have to worry, I'm not going to kiss you again, Joey. What's going on here?
Joey: I don't know.
Pacey: Well don't you think I deserve a better answer than that after all this?
Joey: Pacey, believe me, I've been trying to get you out of my head. I've tried to pretend that this is some bizarre hormonal
glitch but it's not working.
Pacey: Do you really want it to work?
Joey: I tried to tell him.
Pacey: Really?
Joey: Yes.
Pacey: What happened?
Joey: I couldn't really find the words, Pacey, which I know is odd considering the sheer volume of words spoken
throughout the course of our relationship…
Pacey: But what would you have said to him?
Joey: I don't know.
Pacey: I don't believe you.
[She stands up.]
Joey: Pacey, I don't have any answers right now, okay. Can't you understand—
Pacey: The only reason that you don't have answers is because you've been too scared to ask yourself the right questions.
Joey: What are you talking about?
Pacey: Look, I know how I feel. YOU know how I feel. That much is obvious by now. But during this whole process, we've
managed to miss the point. Because the point is not how I feel. It's how you feel. So how do you feel?
Joey: Awful. That's how I feel, Pacey. I feel awful.
Pacey: So do I. When I was kissing you tonight, I don't think that I've ever felt better and worse at one time in my entire life.
I mean, the very idea that Dawson or Andie would find out about us is killing me. It is tearing me up on the inside to
have these feelings for you, but I can't get rid of them.
[He then stands and faces her.]
Pacey: I can't keep on kissing you, Jo.
Joey: What do you mean?
Pacey: I mean just that. *I* can't keep on kissing *YOU*, alright? I've done it twice now. I can't be the one who's always
initiating this. I can't be the one who's always giving you the answers. Look at me, Joey.
Joey: I can't.
Pacey: Please?
[She does -- tears fall to her face.]
Pacey: If you felt even one shred of what I feel for you, then we wouldn't be standing here having this conversation.
[He walks past her to leave, then she grabs his hand as he passes her.]
Joey: Pacey...
[He stops and looks down at her hand holding his. She moves closer, stands on her toes, and kisses him.]

To Green, With Love - 3x16
[Downtown Capeside - Pacey is holding Joey's hand and leads her across the street to an empty lot.]
Pacey: Come on. It's just a little bit farther, right up here. Doo dah doo dah doo. A couple more steps. Right here. Whoa, stop.
Right there. Perfect. We're here.
Joey: Pacey, I don't know where you think 'here' is, but it seems to me we're nowhere.
Pacey: Think back with me for just a second. Do you remember how this whole thing started? It started with a girl, a wall,
and a paintbrush.
[He holds up a paint brush.]
Joey: You bought me a paint brush?
Pacey: No, lame-o. I stole this from your permanent collection.
[He eyes the wall in front of them.]
Joey: You bought me a wall?
Pacey: Not bought, rented. And this thing didn't come cheap, either. It cost me a hundred bucks.
Joey: You bought me a wall?
Pacey: You said that already. Look, it's a limited time offer, so you should get cracking.
Joey: Pacey, did you fail to notice the size of this thing?
Pacey: I just thought your next endeavor should be bigger and better than your last one. I'm supporting you, you keep on
growing both as a person and as an artist. I also got you this.
[He holds up a can of paint.]
Pacey: Now I know it's not going to cover the whole thing. But as the saying goes, 'The journey of 1,000 miles begins with a
single step.'
Joey: Well, I'm gonna need your help on this one.
Pacey: No, no, no, no. Not this time. You're on your own, sister.
Joey: Pacey, you're unbelievable. I mean, as soon as I think I've got you all figured out, you go and you do something so
outrageous that... it completely challenges me in a way that no one else would even think of that... In case I don't say it
enough, thank you.
Pacey: It's about time, Potter. It's about time.
[They smile at each other as he leaves. She stares at the wall, in awe.]

... Must Come To An End - 6x24
[At the Ice House - Pacey goes into the kitchen and sees Joey looking around.]
Pacey: Hey.
Joey: Hey. I'm looking for some serving spoons.
Pacey: They're in the bin at the end.
Joey: Well, how you doing? You okay?
Pacey: Yeah. Yeah, I really am okay.
[She notices something is up with him.]
Joey: What's going on in that head of yours?
Pacey: You're off the hook.
Joey: What?
Pacey: You're off the hook. I've never really put much faith in all that 'if you love someone, set them free' crap, as evidenced
by everything I've done in my life up to this very moment. But I am determined to be happy, Joey. Happy in this life.
And I love you. I mean, I always-- I have always, always loved you. But our timing has just never been right. And the
way I figure it, time is no man's friend. So I have to get right with that and be happy, now. Because this is it. I mean,
this is all that we get. If there's one thing I've learned from losing Jen, that's what I've learned.
Joey: Pace, I—
Pacey: Actually, um, hold on. I'm not done yet. Because I also want for you to be happy. It's really important for me that you
be happy. So I want you to be with someone, whether it be Dawson or New York guy or some man that you haven't even
met yet. But I want you to be with someone who can be a part of the life that you want for yourself. I want you to be with
someone who makes you feel like I feel when I'm with you. So, I guess the point to this long run-on sentence that's been
the last ten years of our lives is just that the simple act of being in love with you is enough for me. So you're off the
[Her eyes water.]
Joey: You know what, for the record, I-- I don't want to be let off the hook. Because everything in my life that I've done has
led me here... right now, and the last thing I want, need, or deserve is to be let off somebody's hook.
Pacey: Please don't miss my point here 'cause—
Joey: And don't miss mine. Pacey... I love you. You know that. But it's very real. It's so real that it's kept me moving, mostly
running from it, never ready for it. And I love Dawson. He's my soul mate. He's tied to my childhood, and it's a love that
is pure and eternally innocent.
[She pauses, her emotions get the best of her.]
Joey: I can't be let off the hook because I might just get the notion that it's ok to keep running.
Pacey: So then, what exactly are you saying here?
[Gail interrupts, unknowingly.]
Gail: Oh Pacey, there you are. Um, we need plates.
[He points to where they are. She hugs him]
Gail: You are so sweet to open up your place like this. I love you both.
[She then hugs Joey, grabs the plates, and leaves.]
Pacey: Okay, uh... I think you were maybe just about to say something really important.
Joey: Pacey... I realized—
[Bessie walks in.]
Bessie: Joey, give me a hand.
[Bessie gets a tray and hands it to Joey.]
Bessie: Here, grab this tray. Here. How are you doing, Pacey?
[He puts his hand on his face.]
Pacey: I'm good, Bess. I'm good, thanks.
[He lets out a happy yet confused sigh as Joey goes off to help and things are left up in the air.]

Castaways - 6x15
[In K-Mart - Joey is pushing Pacey down an aisle as he is sitting in a desk chair on wheels.]
Joey: I promise you this is not going to hurt.
Pacey: Now, how could you possibly make a promise like that about what it is we're about to do, seeing as you've never done it
[They pull up to a table with shaving cream, razors and a bowl of water on it.]
Joey: Just because I've never done it before doesn't mean I'm not gonna be good at it. I was good at sex, wasn't I? Sorry. Forget
that. Sore subject. Anyway... you know, if you're so worried about potential blood loss, you could always do it yourself,
you know.
Pacey: Well, I think I've already displayed the fact that I just-- I lack the iron will necessary to do this.
Joey: Okay. Now... the important thing to remember is not to move. And no talking.
[She takes a towel and puts it around his neck. Leans his head back and grabs a pair of scissors.]
Joey: Last chance to bail.
Pacey: Well, it's kinda hard to tell you I want to bail if I'm not allowed to talk, isn't it?
Joey: Oh. Well, blink twice or something.
Pacey: That's no kind of solution. That presupposes that I'm gonna stop blinking. Who stops blinking? Really, that's just—
Joey: Okay, shut up.
[She begins to cut his goatee with the scissors. She turns him around and grabs two cans of shaving cream from the

Joey: Regular or menthol?
Pacey: Are we smoking or are we shaving?
Joey: Pacey Witter: friend to women. I think it's better to go with sensitive skin.
[She begins to gently put some on him.]
Joey: Okay...
Pacey: It's okay. Don't be shy.
[She begins to put it all over his face.]
Pacey: Mmm.
[He chuckles. She grabs the razor and heads towards his face.]
Joey: Okay. It's harder than legs. Although not dissimilar to knee—
[She moves down his chin and accidentally nicks him.]
Pacey: Mhhh!
Joey: Sorry.
[She kisses her finger and touches the cut. He laughs with his mouth still closed.]
Joey: There. Hello, chin. You're back!
[He laughs a little again.]
Pacey: Well, I was never really gone.
Joey: You weren't?
Pacey: Mmt-mmm.
Joey: It kinda seemed like it.
[They look deeply into each others' eyes, then he leans over and kisses her.]

Stolen Kisses - 3x19
[Outside Aunt Gwen's House - Joey goes to look for Pacey and she finds him outside sitting on some picnic chairs.]
Joey: Are you okay?
Pacey: Not so much, no.
Joey: Well, what's wrong?
Pacey: Well, it's the history. It's killing me. How can a guy compete when the two of you have your own karaoke routine?
Joey: Pacey, you're not suppose to compete. We're suppose to have our own hist-- I didn't mean that.
Pacey: Well, what did you mean?
Joey: I don't even know anymore, Pacey.
Pacey: You know this little arrangement we got going between us?
Joey: Yes?
Pacey: Well, it sucks! It sucks up one side and down the other. It's uncomfortable, it's weird, and I hate every single second
of it.
Joey: Really?
Pacey: Yes!
Joey: Then why did you come here, Pacey?
[He stands up.]
Pacey: You know, for a bright girl, you can be really daft sometimes. Why do you think I came here? I came here to be with
you! It's as simple as that. When you like somebody, proximity is a good thing, regardless of how they feel about you.
Or don't as the case may be.
[He walks past her to go back into the house.]
Joey: Look, I felt it.
[He stops, turns, and looks at her.]
Pacey: What?
Joey: This morning. Your arm brushed up against me in bed and-- and I felt it.
Pacey: How did it feel?
Joey: It made me feel alive.
Pacey: Okay. Joey, I am going to kiss you now.
Joey: You can't.
Pacey: Look Jo, you can't say something like that to me and expect me not to kiss you. So that's exactly what I want to do.
I'm going to kiss you in about 10 seconds. And if you don't want me to kiss you, well then if you don't want me to,
I guess then you're just gonna have to stop me.
[He moves closer to her.]
Pacey: Ten.
[He takes her face in his hands and kisses her.]

Castaways - 6x15
[In the Outdoors department of K-Mart - Pacey and Joey are lying down in separate sleeping bags.]
Joey: Hey Pace, did you—
Pacey: Put all the stuff back? Yeah. Though some of it we're gonna have to pay for, like the clothes.
[She sighs.]
Joey: Pacey, did you—
Pacey: If the next words out of your mouth are 'take out the trash,' I will officially have a preview of what it'd be like to be
married to you.
Joey: And?
Pacey: It ain't pretty.
[He laughs.]
Joey: I was going to say... Did you know?
Pacey: Did I know what?
Joey: This was a dream come true.
Pacey: Which part?
Joey: All of it.
[They roll to look at one another.]
Joey: When you and I were on the boat I used to dream that we'd be cast away somewhere. You know, your standard tropical
island with the white sand beaches and giant stars overhead. We'd wear no clothes, and we’d splash in the surf all day.
And then at night the moon would be this... well, this giant thing. And it was always full.
Pacey: I like this fantasy. I'd catch fish with my bare hands, make fire without matches.
Joey: I'd make the fires.
[He looks over at her weirdly.]
Joey: Who paid attention in science class?
Pacey: Okay. Good point.
Joey: Besides, it's my fantasy. And I guess I never told you about it before because it’s embarrassing, you know? I mean...
not at all original.
Pacey: I guess you were right about one thing.
Joey: What's that?
Pacey: There are about a thousand reasons why you and I would never work.
Joey: There's one thing in the pro column.
Pacey: What's that?
[She gets out of her sleeping bag and goes over to join him.]
Joey: It doesn't mean what you think it means.
Pacey: Well, then what does it mean?
Joey: Well... it means that... well, I'm cold.
Pacey: Oh.
[He pulls the covers over her.]
Joey: And... I'm still thinking about it.
Joey: I miss you, pace.
Pacey: I miss you, too.
[They fall asleep together.]

The Longest Day - 3x20
[Pacey and Joey are in a shed near the pier and are having a make-out session.]
Joey: Come on. Let's go, Pacey. It's your boat we're planning on christening.
[He lifts her up onto a table in front of him.]
Pacey: I own a boat?
Joey: We have to stop doing this, it's wrong.
[He kisses on her neck.]
Pacey: Yes, dead wrong.
Joey: Pacey. Look, we've been in denial all week. I mean, when we're around other people we pretend like nothing's changed
and the minute we're alone, it turns into this.
Pacey: This what?
Joey: Well, this embarrassing grope fest.
Pacey: Yeah, I guess this is kind of embarrassing, huh? Especially for you. Given how much you protested.
Joey: I did not protest.
Pacey: You did, too.
[They kiss.]
Pacey: Wait, wait wait wait.
Joey: What?
Pacey: We gotta tell him, Jo. We do. We gotta tell him-- as soon as possible because the longer we wait, Jo, the worse it gets.
Joey: I know, Pacey. I tried. I've tried plenty of times.
Pacey: Every time I see the guy now, I just feel—
Joey: Look, you don't have to bother filling in the expletive, okay? I mean this isn't exactly the easiest thing I've ever had to
do, Pacey. Telling Dawson that while he wasn't looking, I developed this bizarre, gravitational pull towards his best
friend and I can't stop thinking about him or wanting to be near him or wanting to kiss him all the time.
[They kiss some more.]
Pacey: I'll do it.
Joey: What?
Pacey: I'll tell him.
Joey: No, I can't let you do that, it's... this is my responsibility.
Pacey: Jo, it's not your responsibility. I'm the one that started this, remember? I'm the one that got you into this situation.
And frankly, the only way I'n gonna save my friendship with Dawson is to be completely honest with him. So I gotta
do this. All I need is one day. Just one day.
Joey: One day.
Pacey: Yes, one day.
Joey: You gotta learn to read between the banter, Pacey.
Pacey: The thought of losing her or hurting her... it's not even a consideration.

Going by the last post in the last thread, I agree about how Pacey handled how Joey felt about the Dawson/Gretchen kiss. That is another thing showing how mature and patient he is. He tackled it head on and told Joey to sort out her feelings and how she feels. That is a very ballsy thing to do, cause that can be scary. I also think that's the episode where Pacey went to Joey's teacher to ask him to let her take the test again. Just more things that made them come out stronger as a couple. Pacey is the damn man!

Pacey was always clearly insecure about D and J. But I think it must of been settling when she reassures Pacey he’s her future. And also the comment about always feeling like a 15 year old with Dawson. Pacey is like a vessel for her to grow. Of course if we look post season 4. They were apart for months after their break up at prom. By that point they were not in that place. But kept in the same circle of friends. 2nd year in Boston they reconcile. But break up again. In the Series Final which was 2008. Set 5 years in the future. At Gales wedding they reconcile. Move to NY. In Joeys apartment, get married and have kids.

Of course KW has suggested if their was a reboot. They would be divorced, but we’ll see them fall in love again. Of course a rehash of their original story arch on the initial run of the series. But familiar I suspose. Sorry going on lol. Just rewatching the show. And really got into Joey and Pacey haha.

Thanks for the new Thread

I agree that Pacey and Joey handled their relationship in a much better way than Joey and Dawson did. Pacey and Joey were there to support each other no matter what, it was never a competition with them. They did have their weak moments, but they always had each others best interest at heart.

Yeah, the best thing is when Joey realizes the D/G thing was easy familiarity and that she doesn't grow with Dawson. She has always grown with Pacey. She was able to find herself while with Pacey too (unlike Dawson lol) I also love how supportive they were of each other, whether they were together or not. No bad blood.

good points

She genuinely seemed happy when she talked to Dawson about giving Gretchen a chance. Her face lights up when she sees the picture of her and Pacey
is it true you went out with Joshua Jackson last year?
Katie Holmes: I fell in love for the first time and it was something so incredible and indescribable that I will always treasure it.

KH asked about kissing her ex (JJ) in front of the cameras all day:

"Maybe there's a hint of realism?"

Clearly the couple that had the most chemistry on the show.

I like that them dating in real life probably had something to do with it. Or they're just that good together on screen
