We open in Dawson’s Shrine o’ Spielberg. He’s watching his footage back (read: creepily talking about how perfect Jen is) while Joey sasses about how Jen’s future is sooooooooo predictable – she’ll go to a small liberal arts college, major in art history, move back to Manhattan, marry a stockbroker, move to the suburbs and raise neurotically perfect children. Dawson changes the subject to what he should get his parents for their wedding anniversary, and um, NOTHING??? Unless buying your parents an anniversary present is a thing in America and I’m not aware of it?!
Democracy Diva: Yeah, definitely have never done that. I think maybe I gave them a card when we had a big dinner for their 30th anniversary, but in general, this is not a thing in my circles.

Shrine O’Spielberg. Dawson and Joey are having a disaster movie marathon because there’s a hurricane a-blowin’. Gail and her not-so-secret lover Bob are covering the storm on TV, and are overtly flirting with each other during the broadcast because they’re bad at secrets. Dawson’s parents still don’t know that he knows about the affair, and he’s too tired to deal with feelings, so he asks Joey, “You mind if I sack?” Is this an actual thing that humans say? (K: Maybe it was in the 90s??) Anyway, Joey basically tells him to deal with his shit instead of hiding out in the storm. Instead, he broods and watches his mother and her mastress (man-mistress? Guys, it’s so sexist that there isn’t a word for this!) on the news.
