Andie: My knees are shaking…
Pacey: My heart...boom,boom,boom.
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
I sat there looking at this incredible reflection of who you are, and I realized that I absolutely hate it when you're not around. I wanted to thank you, I wanted to hold your hand, I wanted to kiss you, but you weren't there- Dawson's Creek
What is this feeling? It just seems like everything is getting smaller and smaller. It's all still there, but I can't touch it. I think it's called goodbye.- Dawson's Creek
Before we destroy whatever chance we might actually have at having a relationship, I'm asking you, please stop and think about this, is this really what you want? Is this really the way you want things to end between us?- Dawson's Creek
We all have our moments. You know what? Don't stop hoping that things will be different with him. You're way too young to be so bitter.- Dawson's Creek
If I'm thanking you for anything... it's for being yourself. It's for not caring what anybody else thinks. It's for knowing in your own heart what's wrong and what's right. And it's for being there this year... when I needed you most- Dawson's Creek
I thought that this is what I wanted. For you to see me as beautiful. For you to look at me the way you look at Jen. But the truth is, that's not really what I want at all. I want you to look at me and see the person that you've always known and realize that what we’ve had is so much more incredible than just some passing physical attraction. 'Cause you know what? It's just make-up -- and hairspray -- and tomorrow I'll be back to being Joey. Just Joey. The too tall girl that lives on the wrong side of the creek- Dawson's Creek
And it's great to have somebody that you know so well that you don't even have to verbalize what you're thinking most of the time. The other person just gets it, picks up on it. And -- and it -- it's like that with Joey and me. It's great, and I -- and I like it, but it's -- it's not love- Dawson's Creek
I place this unfair burden on people just so they can save me from myself. But I don't need a knight in shining armor. I need a partner. Someone who I am proud to love, who is proud to love me back, in spite of all my flaws. And you're it. You're the one.- Dawson's Creek
The way I feel about him is totally separate from the way I feel about you and about our friendship- Dawson's Creek
You want him. You want him like I want you. You love him like I love you. Only the difference is he loves you back the same way- Dawson's Creek
as complicated as our friendship was, it doesn't even compare to how complicated whatever you and I have here is bound to be. And never in my life has taking the easy way out seemed like exactly what I need to do- Dawson's Creek
But when I came home, I'd lost the guy. My soul-mate. It was like having an organ, my heart, literally ripped from my body. All I could feel was cold and empty... my future, slipping away... You see, I lost my love -- but I was determined not to lose my life- Dawson's Creek
Maybe she fell in love with him or maybe she just wanted someone to pay attention to her- Dawson's Creek
Friends give you the worst of news with the best of intentions.- Dawson's Creek
And the reason I came here tonight is because we need to move on. Look, we're not kids anymore. And I'm not gonna do this anymore. And I just thought you should know- Dawson's Creek
See, the kiss is just the end result. It's not what's important. It's all about desire and -- and wanting- Dawson's Creek
Joey: So what's the problem?
Andie: He's... He's not Pacey. Pathetic. I know. I know. And I thought I was over him. I really, really did. But then I bumped into him a little while ago, and...I mean, technically we're friends, right? And that's how I played it. But then it's, like, when I saw him, every irritating/adorable thing he ever did flashed before my eyes, and... I mean, that's the true test, right? When you just bump into somebody... And if you're not over him, then boom--floodgates.
Pacey: You know, for a bright girl, you can be really daft sometimes. Why do you think i came here? I came here to be with you! It's as simple as that. I mean, when you like somebody, proximity is a good thing, regardless of how they feel about you. Or don't, as the case may be.
Joey: But I felt it.
Joey: This morning. Your arm brushed up against me in bed, and... And I felt it.
Pacey: How did it feel?
Joey: Made me feel alive.
Pacey: Ok. Joey... I'm going to kiss you now.
Joey: You can't.
Pacey: Jo, you can't say something like that to me and expect me not to kiss you, so that's exactly what I’m gonna do. I'm gonna kiss you in about 10 seconds. And if you don't want me to kiss you... Well, if you don't want me to, I guess then you're just gonna have to stop me. 10.
Well, it's just something that I've been thinking about, and I wanted you to know that I was thinking about it. You know, I was just gonna... keep my mouth shut and let you go... but...[Sighs]... It's not me. That's some merchant ivory movie, you know, where people suffer in silence, and you're supposed to be so impressed by their restraint. Well... you know... sorry, but screw that. My best friend in the whole world is leaving tomorrow, and a big part of me wants him to stay... so I hope you don't hate me.- Dawson's Creek
Joey: You were wanting to kiss me all night?
Joey: Even when you were yelling at me.
Pacey: Especially when I was yelling at you.
Joey: So... is this... some sort of... recent new development in your life?
Pacey: Wanting to kiss you? No. It's sort of always there... like...white noise, or... the secret service or the threat of nuclear war, for that matter. Just somethin' you get used to.
What you think you're leaving behind here, it's just going to be that much bigger when you return.- Dawson's Creek
understand that friends come and go, but a precious few you should hold on.. the older you get, the more you need the people who knew you when you were young- Dawson's Creek
all the really exciting things in life require more courage than we currently have. A deep breath and a leap. see joey, the kind of fear youre talking about, sometimes its how you know whats worthwhile- Dawson's Creek
