Storyline

Accepted early to the University of Southern California, Dawson finds his last night in Capeside has arrived much sooner than everyone had originally anticipated. While Dawson looks forward to spending the evening with his friends Joey, Jack and Jen, his father Mitch has other ideas to spend it with him. Meanwhile, Dawson's not the only goodbye Jen has in store for her, as she bids farewell to the house she's been sharing with Grams as she prepares to sell it. Pacey also phones Dawson from Miami to say his own goodbye while Joey says goodbye to Dawson in her own way, with a final goodbye kiss. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

The night before he leaves for film school at USC, Dawson tells his friends it's only a 5-hour flight to Los Angeles, but it actually takes a little over 6 hours to fly from Massachusetts to LA. This was likely a slip by the writers (and James Van Der Beek) who could fly to LA from North Carolina, where the show was produced, in 5 hours. See more »

Quotes

Dawson: It's become obvious to me that in life you're either a Mac person or a PC person, and the choice defines you. Let me put it to you this way: Beatles or Elvis?
Mitch Leery: Beatles.
Dawson: See? Exactly. This is no different.

Sappy but I lived for it
13 August 2019 | by charlierossjSee all my reviews

Wow! Um I hate that I cried but ya that happened. There were so many sappy moments and overall it was just a tearjerker and I feel like the series could have ended here. I'm really glad there are two more seasons tho. Which is a sign of greatness.
