as you know, I’m not good at goodbyes but i guess that's what this is, a real one this time, because as much as i thought i wanted us to be together, i guess what i want more is to be one of those people who lives every moment of his life without indecision and without regrets, someone who dares to disturb the universe without a thought to the consequences, and you’re not one of those people, at least not yet, maybe you'll prove me wrong about that one day, i hope you do, but who knows? maybe people can't change, maybe we’re doomed to repeat the same mistakes over and over again no matter how hard we try. i always hope for a happy ending, how crazy is that? take care of yourself.- Dawson's Creek
loving someone’s gonna hurt, and the sooner you let yourself feel that, the sooner you'll be able to love again- Dawson's Creek
You have to decide how you want to live your life. What you can tolerate. What you're willing to lose- Dawson's Creek
It always comes back to this same girl, the story of my life, Joey Potter. You grow up, and it gets harder to believe in things like soul mates and destiny and magic, things that came so easily when I was younger. I guess it's really hard to hold on to your blind faith after your father gets hit by a truck. Sorry, the point is... as hard as it is, I haven't given up, and maybe thats what I wanted to ask you, if it's okay, after everything that's happened, if its still okay for me to believe something perfect is possible, I really want to believe it, I want to be with her, I love her, dad, okay? We'll talk about this again later, don't go anywhere.- Dawson's Creek
Have you ever had a day that you wish you could permanently eradicate from your memory? You know, one of those unbelievably bad experiences you keep hoping is a bad dream that you're going to wake up from any blissful second?- Dawson's Creek
That's the point. You don't need help. There's nothing to figure out here. There's only what you feel- Dawson's Creek
You walk in that house and it's not just goodnight... it's good-bye- Dawson's Creek
You know, I’ve been thinking about what you guys were saying earlier, about boys being twits. And I think you’re right... but there’s more to it than that. ‘Cause, you know... sometimes all they have to do is just look at you, with that certain look, that look that says that you are exactly where they want to be... and you feel it too, for them... and you just melt. Like a big blob of ice cream. Even when you don’t want to- Dawson's Creek
I'll be sleeping eighty feet away from you, and it'll feel like a thousand miles. I'll regret my decision constantly, I'll kick myself to no end.- Dawson's Creek
when i was afraid of everything, i was never afraid to love you- Dawson's Creek
And, you know, maybe I'm just asking for it right now, but I would rather that you say whatever it is you're thinking, than continue to look at me the way you are right now.- Dawson's Creek
My life began when I met you, and you never gave up on me, so I'm not going to give up on you. So please, for the love of God, come out here and choose me... please- Dawson's Creek
Joey: But, Pacey...if we're such good friends, why is there any awkwardness in the first place?
Pacey: Because not too long ago, we were more than just good friends, now, weren't we?
Joey: Yeah, but we're not anymore.
Pacey: But that doesn't matter. The damage is already done.
no one will love me or care about me the way you did and i think thats what scares me the most, that for so long, you were mine, my life, my everything, so now when i have to say goodbye, how do i not cry, hurt, and want you back?- Dawson's Creek
Pacey:It's over, isn't it?
Joey: It has to be.
Pacey: Maybe you should be the first one to go this time.
I need a friend. Someone who will be there for me without any agenda. The person that you used to be.- Dawson's Creek
Ever have one of those days you wish you could live all over again?- Dawson's Creek
You don't want me.. You said it yourself. You just don't want to lose me- Dawson's Creek
Joey: So the friendship? You don't think we're friends anymore?
Dawson: I don't know. Are we more? Are we less? All I know is it's just not the way it used to be. Nothing is anymore.
Joey: It's called social evolution, Dawson. What's strong enough flourishes and what doesn't we look at behind glass cases in science museums.
Dawson: You and I? Are we museum bound?
And I think that's what love really means... That you can forgive anything. So... To my parents... Who taught me that love does not conquer all... That love ends... And begins again.- Dawson's Creek
i mean, this isn't exactly the easiest thing I’ve ever had to do, Pacey-- telling Dawson that while he wasn't looking, I developed this bizarre gravitational pull towards his best friend, and I can't stop thinking about him or wanting to be near him or wanting to kiss him all the time- Dawson's Creek
Well, I don't-- I don't want to fight either. I'm sorry. If we're gonna have an honest relationship, Dawson, then there's... Something you should know. I broke things off with Pacey, not entirely, but in large part because... I didn't want to lose you. I may have lived across the creek, but it was only when I was rowing in this direction that I actually felt like I was rowing home. You're so much of my life, Dawson. I mean... Your house is my house and your family is my family, and there's not a single significant event I’ve experienced that you haven't experienced with me, and I was so afraid of losing that. But...If that wasn't the choice... And if I thought that there was a chance that you would forgive me... I may have chosen differently. And you deserve to know that.- Dawson's Creek
the heart is a fragile thing. break it too badly, and it might never recover- Dawson's Creek
you keep wearing your heart on your sleeve and you're gonna bleed to death- Dawson's Creek
Whether or not I can forgive you, is not going to be what keeps us apart. What you did... Our relationship was like this beautiful thing. And I don't think you ever realized how powerful it was. You changed my life, Andie. You were that person for me. You inspired me to be a man that I had only ever dreamed about being. When you first started to get sick... It dawned on me that I might not be that person for you. I can never go back to loving you the way I did, knowing that my love wasn't strong enough the first time around- Dawson's Creek
