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.

Two scenes were cut:

- Bessie tells Joey that if she doesn't tell Dawson exactly how she feels when she says goodbye to him, she'll later regret it.
