When Grandma wakes up in the hospital room and looks at Jen, she checks her pulse using her thumb. As a former nurse, she would know a thumb has a pulse, so whatever she is checking would appear to have a pulse. See more »

Quotes

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 had much faith in that whole "if you love someone, set them free" crap, as evidenced by everything I've done in my life up until this very moment, but I am determined to be happy, Joey, happy in this life. And I love you. 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. Well, I have to get right with that and be happy now. ...

"...Must come to an end"
4 June 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I recommend that every teenager should watch this emotional story.The entire series is brought together in this episode, as it shows their future lives since their childhood. The part of the story which makes it a memorable ending to the classic series, is the part when Jennifer Lindley, (michelle Williams) dies and leaves her daughter to the godfather Jack McPhee ( Kerr Smith). The series ends in an unexpected way and this adds to the great effect of the last episode. The sad part of the series is that it has to end, but it has the best ending i have ever watched. The actors and everyone behind the scenes, including the producer and the director deserve to be thanked for making such a wonderful ending to the perfect series. I watched the whole series and found that it was all made spectacularly.
