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.

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 »

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.
