In this unusual episode that replays the same day's activities from three different perspectives: after Pacey unveils his new sailboat, named 'True Love', he and Joey vacillate on the ways to tell Dawson about their feelings for each other. But each time they decide to tell Dawson about them being romantically involved, they chicken out. But when both Pacey and Joey get together and decide to tell Dawson about them, Dawson's angry reaction is what they hoped they wouldn't get: Dawson reveals that he already knows when Jen had earlier that day told him about Joey and Pacey after assuming that they told Dawson. Meanwhile, Andie, who thought she was over Pacey enough to date, accepts a date with Capeside visitor Will, but their first date is ruined when she also learns about Joey and Pacey now a couple.

As the gang discusses their assignment on the Nixon-Watergate scandal, Jen tells Dawson she has finished watching the video she borrowed from him, All the President's Men (1976) and he asks her what she thought of it. She says she enjoyed it but her boyfriend, Henry, thought it was seriously lacking in cute teenage girls. This is an obvious nod to the movie Dick (1999), which came out around the same time this episode aired. Michelle Williams, who plays the character Jen, had recently starred with Kirsten Dunst in that movie, in which the two teenage girls are the ones who uncover the Watergate scandal. See more »


Dawson and Joey have a discussion outside the library, right next to a monument/dedication rock that clearly reads "Wilmington, North Carolina" where the show is filmed, not "Capeside, Massachusetts" where it is set. See more »

The One Over, And Over...
29 April 2016 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I love this episode. I think it's definitely one of my all-time favorite episodes from this season, and the entire series. Finally, the relationship I've been waiting seasons for starts to come out into the light. I thought it was going to be confusing or boring, because of the fact that the same events replay over, but it turned out to be surprisingly entertaining.

In this unusual episode, the same day is replayed over, and over from three different perspectives. Joey, and Pacey try to figure out a way to tell Dawson about their feelings for each other, and Dawson's reaction isn't the best, and by not the best, I mean it couldn't have gone worse. Meanwhile, Andie goes on a date with Will, but the date is ruined when she finds out about Joey, and Pacey's relationship.

Best part of the episode: Everything.

Worst part of the episode: Dawson's reaction.

Overall, I give this episode an 8 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Awesome.
