Storyline

On Dawson's advice, Joey attempts to heal the wounds of her romance with Jack which has been left shattered by rumors and innuendo. Meanwhile, Jack and Andie's father, Joseph McPhee, arrives in town for a get-together which brings out old family tensions which leads Jack confronting his innermost secrets. For the first time in his life, Pacey stands up for what he believes in when he takes on the mean-spirited Mr. Peterson. But the consequences of his convictions are more than Pacey could have imagined when he's suspended from school and Peterson makes his personal agenda to fail Pacey with unethical means. Pacey then sets out to ruin Mr. Peterson by investigating and challenging his authority with a code of conduct book over his teaching methods. Also, Jen thinks that Ty may not be the guy for her when she sees little amusement in his stereotypical comments especially over Jack's true sexual orientation, while Grams is surprisingly understanding and supportive.

Quotes

Evelyn "Grams" Ryan: [to Ty] If Jack is gay - he doesn't need your judgment, young man. The Lord above will be the one to judge him as he will judge all of us. What he needs from you and me and everyone else in this world is love and tolerance. If anything, that boy must feel scared and alone and it will take the understanding of his fellow man to help him through. Let's save judgment for someone much more experienced than you.

Jack Quack Like a Duck
24 May 2010 | by (Indonesia) – See all my reviews

I personally appreciate and respect what the writers did here, not just writing about something taboo, but also criticize and enlighten the viewers with it's own identity. In this episode Jack confesses that he is gay, such an emotionally nerve-wrecking between Jack, Andie and their father; a man that's so stubborn to put his ego beyond his son's need.

Another aspect is, Jen and Ty end of relationship with Grams interfering with her enlightenment of being gay in Christian's eyes. I'm no religious guy, but this episode just touch me the most and love Grams believe. A wonderful portrayal of a devoted lady, and what we should be. To end the episodes, we see Joey being comforted by one and only, her best friend Dawson Leery.
