After spending the summer with his mother in Philadelphia, Dawson returns to Capeside and meets a beautiful, outgoing, young woman, named Eve Whitman, on the bus from Philadelphia.

This episode is an homage to the movie Risky Business
(1983). In Risky Business, a teenage boy crashes his dad's car during a joyride taken to impress a prostitute. In order to raise money to fix the car, he hosts a party where teenage boys can party and sleep with friends of the call girl's. Several scenes of this episode are set up very similarly to those in the movie, and some notes of "Old Time Rock & Roll" play when Pacey looks into the mirror wearing dark sunglasses. See more
