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 »

Pacey: Is the same one that I can't live without.
