“pacey what does this mean?”
“well it means you were right. that my leaving would be giving up on you and i’m not quite prepared to do that just yet. but it also means that i need to know that you’re not quite prepared to give up on me yet either.”
Top 50 Television Show Characters - 47. Joey Potter - Dawson’s Creek
Joey: I’d like to tell today’s youth that no matter where life takes you, big cities, small towns, you’ll inevitably come across small minds. People who think that they’re better than you are. People who think that material things, or being pretty or popular automatically makes you a worth while human being. I’d like to tell today’s youth that none of these things matter unless you have strength of character, integrity, sense of pride, and if you’re lucky enough to have any of these things… don’t ever sell them. Don’t ever sell out. So when you meet a person for the first time, please don’t judge them by their station on life, because, who knows, that person just might end up being your best friend. Thank you.
PACEY: I was just thinking to myself that when you loosen up, you’re not half bad to be around. Bordering on fun, even.
JOEY: Home, Jeeves.
PACEY: Yes, Miss Daisy.
Jen: We’re so gonna freeze.
Grams: You’ll never get it started with the hickory on the bottom. May I? Hickory is a glorious wood, but it’s a hard wood. Will never burn on its own. Soft pine goes on the bottom, oak in the middle, hickory on top. There we go.
Mitch: Wow, I’m impressed.
Jen: You know, she churns her own butter, too.
Grams: Oh, I used to build a fire after dinner every night in the winter.
Jennifer’s Grandfather would sit in his leather chair, feet on ottoman, and
read to me. Some nights we’d travel with Ahab in search of the great whale.
Or some nights we’d float down the perilous river with Huck and Jim.
Nearly every night, at some point in our journey, he’d fall asleep, chin on
chest, book in lap, content. You know you love someone when you can spend
the entire night just sitting by the fire, watching him sleep.
Gale: Sounds like you loved him very much.
Grams: Love is the hardest of woods. Takes a long, long time to heat up,
but it does.
Jen: God, it smells good in here.
asked by: cogburns and anon.
Joey: Strip poker. I leave you alone for 2 seconds, and you end up playing strip poker?
Pacey: Originally this was just poker-poker, until I started kicking his ass. Then your friendly neighborhood co-worker decides to change the stakes on me, but I’m finished now, and, uh, we can just leave.
Joey: Why leave? There’s a half-naked chick in the room.
Pacey: It’s just a game. Up until now, nobody’s taken off anything other than socks.
Joey: So, it’s just all good, clean fun?
Pacey: Yeah, exactly. Just good, clean, American guy fun.
Joey: Mmm. Deal me in.
Pacey: Excuse me?
Joey: You heard me. Now, what does a girl have to take off in order to play this game?
Pacey: Ok, that’s enough. It’s time for us to leave now, ‘cause you see, you’re drunk, you’re bordering on disorderly, and you are definitely insane. So get up. Let’s go. Shall we? Finished? Stand up. Let’s go.
Joey: You want me to stand up?
Pacey: Yes, I’d like for you to stand up now.
Joey: And why would I do that?
Pacey: Because you are forcing me to make the ultimate guy maneuver.
You know you love someone, when you can spend the entire night, just sitting by the fire, watching them sleep…
And I don’t want to world to see me, ‘cause I don’t think that they’d understand.
When everything’s made to be broken, I just want you to know who I am.
“If you felt even one shred of what I feel for you.. then we wouldn’t be standing here having this conversation.”

JOEY: Imagine that, Pacey. We actually have something in common. Providing gossip for the small-minded townsfolk. And unfortunately for you, you’re tonight’s top story.
PACEY: Great. So, what do I do now?
JOEY: Same thing I did… you pray like hell for a better story to come along.
