Savage Garden - Truly Madly Deeply by cladstrife
is meant to represent Dawson's inner emotional turmoil and heartache.
- Pacey explaining and trying to convince Dawson of his place in the universe as the anti-rebel or “good boy”. Basically, what Pacey is saying is that Dawson = Dorkson (though I continue to be surprised that no-one has used this special name yet) and that for a 15 year old, he certainly seems stereotypically middleaged.
- Billy explaining The Rules for scoring.
SPOILER ALERT: Billy's rules don't appear to work (at least, not for Billy and Pacey). Dawson's cringingly awkward approach to Nina, a woman wearing a Film Threat tee, actually gets him results. Which brings us to...
- Dawson's near-dalliance with a woman who actually looks WAY TOO OLD FOR HIM.Nina's views on film are THE CORRECT ONES. She also cites Kubrick and Scorsese as "real" directors. Take that Dorkson.Pacey is all like “Woah, that chick is HOT!” when he sees Dawson chatting her up but we all know about Pacey's thus-far questionable taste *cough* MS JACOBS *cough*. Dawson actually gets all the way out of the club and to Nina's car, where she invites him back to her place – not to “do” anything except watch TV of course because there's been enough statutory rape on this show already. Dawson TURNS HER DOWN, because he thinks it would be wrong...to watch tv with another woman when he's still in love with Jen? Uh..okay. Anyhow, it turns out he was onto Billy's pretty obvious scheme all along: of course Billy wanted Dawson to hook up with someone so he could throw that in Jen's face.But if Dawson knew that – why not just stay the freak away from Billy and his stupid road trip? Also...HE WATCHES TV WITH JOEY ALL THE TIME. How is that not wrong, Dorkson?Anyhow - DAWSON DOESN'T THINK IT'S WRONG TO GIVE NINA A GOOD OLD-FASHIONED PASH OUTSIDE A SEEDY PUB. Dawson is all class.
