The series finale of Dawson’s Creek was the first DVD I ever bought. Seriously. It was used and on Amazon for like $9 and it came with a heinously water-damaged insert, though the disc itself was intact.
That DVD has paid for itself about ten times over, my friends, mangled insert and everything.
I just watched it once again after marathoning season 3 this past week and it was as cheesy, lame, heartbreaking and beautiful as ever. I JUST LOVE IT.
Like my favorite quote from Dawson:
It’s interesting how people use that expression, “life and death.” As if to imply that life is the opposite of death. Birth is the opposite of death. Life…has no opposite.
Deep stuff, Mr. Leery. Real deep.
Because of the sadness of Jen, the happy ending of Jack and Deputy Doug, the mending of fences between Dawson and Joey/Pacey and the fact that Joey actually ended up with Pacey for real, for real, for real, these have always been two of my favorite hours of television, even if they do make me sob like a pathetic weirdo.
Now, I hear from my mom that thousands of people across the city of Providence are without power from the storm, so I better get started watching Youtube montages of Pacey and Joey set to emo songs before I too am without electricity and have to do something lame with my time, you know, like read a book or something.
