"Dawson's Creek: Full Moon Rising (#2.5)" (1998)
Abby Morgan: Look, let's never let a guy come between us again. Men will come and go, but you and I are kindred spirits. We're rebels bound by the common need to break out of this small town abyss.
Jen Lindley: Okay, are you sure you're okay with this whole guy thing?
Abby Morgan: Absolutely.
Jen Lindley: Good, because I've been dying to tell someone. I've got a date with Vincent.
Abby Morgan: You bitch!
Jen Lindley: What?
Abby Morgan: After everything I've done for you, how could you steal him from me?
Jen Lindley: Are you out of your mind? He doesn't even know that you exist, Abby.
[Jen begins to walk away as Abby starts following her]
Abby Morgan: You might want to stop and pick up some condoms. You're in the big leagues now, babe. I mean that guy probally has illegimate kids scattared up and down the eastern seaboard.
Jen Lindley: Shut up, Abby.
Abby Morgan: Yeah, he probally likes it kinky. After all, you are the girl from New York City, right?
Jen Lindley: I'm warning you, back off!
Abby Morgan: Yeah, old Vince probally knows a easy lay when he sees one!
[enraged, Jen suddenly turns and slaps Abby hard across her face, almost knocking her down]
Jen Lindley: Don't you ever talk to me again, EVER!

Abby Morgan: I cannot belive you would hit me. Me! You're best friend!
Jen Lindley: Best friend? Abby, need I remind you that in the past two days, you have called me a bitch, a slut, and a loser.
Abby Morgan: Yeah. But I would never hit you!
Jen Lindley: You're warped! Why don't you just go home?
Abby Morgan: Why? Is the dork from the docks commin' a callin'?
Jen Lindley: Yes, he is.

Evelyn 'Grams' Ryan: I do not know what to do about you, child!
Jen Lindley: Please, don't preach to me right now.
Evelyn 'Grams' Ryan: No, there'll be no talk about God. You leave him out of it. This is between you and me. What I witnessed tonight is something I never want to see again, not in my house, not in my lifetime!
Jen Lindley: I had the situation under control. You don't have to get upset at me.
Evelyn 'Grams' Ryan: I am not upset, I am sick! I will not allow you to slide back into your reprehensible, New York behavior. Not while you're under my care. You will not disrespect me.
Jen Lindley: Wait a minute, I...
Evelyn 'Grams' Ryan: No, you wait a minute Jennifer! This behavior will not be tolerated. You will treat me with respect, and you will act like a lady. Have you no respect for yourself?


"Dawson's Creek: Escape from Witch Island (#3.7)" (1999)
Jennifer "Jen" Lindley: I say witch is just a buzzword. For a girl who happens to follow her completely healthy, totally natural urges, and explore her sexuality. But see, you can't do that in school in the swingin' 1690's without getting the good townsfolk all up in arms. So what do these puritanical, impotent creeps do? Instead of reaching for the Viagra, they brand these girls as witches, they send them off to this godforsaken island to die a horrible solitary death.
Joey: Well, lucky for you, Jen - I mean, we live in a world where you can follow your natural urges without fear of persecution.
Jennifer "Jen" Lindley: You're right. I would've been so burned at the stake by now.

Jen: I wonder if Pacey loves me yet?

Dawson: If he did meet somebody else and forgot about her than obviously they were never meant to be in the first place. See my point?
Joey: Could you be any more naive?
Dawson: Could you be any more cynical?
Jennifer "Jen" Lindley: Could you be any more irritating?


"Dawson's Creek: Detention (#1.7)" (1998)
Jen: We can't all be like you, Abby, having your little ecstasy gang bangs on the floor of the boys' locker room.

Dawson Leery: This is so Breakfast Club!
Jen: Breakfast Club?
Dawson Leery: You know, the John Hughes movie where five kids are stuck in detention all day?
Joey Potter: Yeah, in the beginning they hate each other, and then by the end they're best friends.
Jen: Oh yeah. God, that movie stunk! Whatever happened to those actors?
Dawson Leery: Well, Anthony Michael Hall developed some weird thyroid condition, Molly Ringwald lost her gawky ingenue appeal, and the rest are languishing somewhere in TV hell.
Pacey: No way, man! Emilio Estivez was in those duck movies. Those were classic. So funny!
[Jen, Dawson and Joey stare at him blankly]
Pacey: What?


"Dawson's Creek: The Longest Day (#3.20)" (2000)
Jen: Well, because right now you've gotta walk through that front door and tell your best friend that the only girl in the universe he can't live without...
Pacey: Is the same one that I can't live without.

Joey: I just wish I were more like you. You feel things, you act on them. Pacey's like that, too. Fearless.
Jen: I'll let you in on a little secret about the so-called fearless: We're not as tough as you think we are. Pacey's heart is just as breakable as the next guy's... maybe even more so, considering it was already broken when you got there.


"Dawson's Creek: Guerilla Filmmaking (#5.14)" (2002)
Charlie: Why should I do you a favor?
Jen: You get to make out with a really hot girl.

Jen: He's evil. There's no other explanation. I mean, isn't it entirely possible that he is in fact the Devil, crammed into the body of a handsome musician.


"Dawson's Creek: The Election (#2.9)" (1998)
Jen: Put this in your pocket.
Dawson: No way.
Jen: This is your symbolic candy bar.
Dawson: Why is my symbolic candy bar "Crimson Passion" lipstick?

Dawson: [Jen has lured Dawson to the shore of a forest pool, taken off her clothes and plunged into the water. Dawson is still clothed, on the beach] Jen, you're...
Jen: [Smiling] Naked. And all wet.
Jen: [Shyly, Dawson takes off her clothes behind a bush. Jen teases him] Dawson, is that a tree branch or are you just happy to see me?


"Dawson's Creek: ...Must Come to an End (#6.24)" (2003)
[Jen and Jack's final scene]
Jack: Jen I want her. I want her. I don't know what you and Grams have discussed.
Jen: Grams is aware of her own situation, her health and all. We both think that you would make an excellent father. Now Jack, please help Amy to find a place to be. I feel like I never really quite fit in.
Jack: Which is why we're us.
Jen: I know. I mean from the second that I stepped out of that cab onto the creek I was the instigator, you know, the girl who caused problems and rocked the creek and upset the delicate emotional balance of Capeside and I don't want Amy to be that person. I want her to belong, I feel like I never really did.
Jack: Jen. You belong... you belong to me. Don't you get it? You're my soulmate. Amy's gonna know love, everyday of her life she is gonna know how much her mother loved her. I'm gonna see to that. Ok?

Jen: Hi, Amy, it's mom. Well, by the time you see this, I won't be here anymore, and I know how much that sucks, for both of us. So seeing as how I won't be around to thoroughly annoy you, I thought I would give you a little list of the things that I wish for you. Well, there's the obvious. An education. Family. Friends. And a life that is full of the unexpected. Be sure to make mistakes. Make a lot of them, because there's no better way to learn and to grow, all right? And, um, I want you to spend a lot of time at the ocean, because the ocean forces you to dream, and I insist that you, my girl, be a dreamer. God. I've never really believed in God. In fact, I've spent a lot of time and energy trying to disprove that god exists. But I hope that you are able to believe in god, because the thing that I've come to realize, sweetheart... is that it just doesn't matter if god exists or not. The important thing is for you to believe in something, because I promise you that that belief will keep you warm at night, and I want you to feel safe always. And then there's love. I want you to love to the tips of your fingers, and when you find that love, wherever you find it, whoever you choose, don't run away from it. But you don't have to chase after it either. You just be patient, and it'll come to you, I promise, and when you least expect it, like you, like spending the best year of my life with the sweetest and the smartest and the most beautiful baby girl in the world. You don't be afraid, sweetheart. And remember, to love is to live.

"Dawson's Creek: Like a Virgin (#3.1)" (1999)
Jennifer "Jen" Lindley: When you see Belinda and her clique in the hallway, you're desperately wishing that you were walking with them, aren't you? And thinking that maybe if you were wearing the right shoes, sporting the latest hairstyle, and using the hottest shade of lip gloss, then maybe they would toss a glance in your direction. Ever wonder why they force their narrow-minded opinions down our throats? Perhaps it's because they have an inkling of what the future has in store for them beyond graduation. Cut to 25 years from now, Belinda McGovern wakes up one morning feeling empty. Maybe it's because her Dartmouth-educated lawyer husband Tad has run off to Tijuana with her daughter's roommate from boarding school. Or maybe it's because the twins, Timmy and Tommy, call her by her first name and their live-in housekeeper "Mom." Or maybe it's Belinda's daily 2:00, 5:00, 7:00, and 9:15 showdown with her bottle of Prozac. Her life has become a domestic wasteland. Avoid this fate. Don't let yourself become another cookie-cutter blonde, size 4, rah-rah-sis-bam-boom, mindless, soulless, spineless wench. Screw these auditions, screw cheerleading, and screw Belinda McGovern.

"Dawson's Creek: True Love (#3.23)" (2000)
Jen: Oww! A piece of crab shell. That's what I need right now, a chipped tooth. It'll keep men away from me for good.
Andie: If that doesn't work, you can always join me in the nunnery this summer.
Jack: At least you got to have relationships before they failed.
Evelyn "Grams" Ryan: Good grief, you all sound like a bunch of old ladies!
