Parental Discretion Advised - S2-E22

Trivia: Paul Stupin mentions this true story while discussing the show during the narrative for this episode. Once when Joshua Jackson (who played Pacey) was out swimming at night, there was a girl who was caught in some currents. He jumped in the water, swam out and brought the girl to safety. Joshua made the local newspapers as a "hero", and was known around Wilmington as 'the guy who saved the drowning girl'. The show also had a big ceremony on the set, where they gave Joshua a life preserver in honor of his heroic deeds.

Trivia: During the narrative for this episode, Paul Stupin talks about the town of Wilmington, NC where Dawson's Creek was filmed. Wilmington is such an old town, that every building has one ghost or another, and every one has a ghost story. There is an inn there called the "Wilmingtonian" where they all would stay while filming. This is a very old inn, and the room behind the front desk was supposedly haunted. One of the writers stayed there, and would be woken up in the middle of the night with the hairs on her neck standing straight out and she would sense a presence. Another writer who stayed in that room supposedly saw a figure in the mirror. There is also a restaurant in Wilmington where a waitress claims that once when she was working on the upper floor, she turned around and saw an apparition standing out on the balcony. It was a fellow dressed as a soldier.

Trivia: The actual location of the Ice House used in this scene, was a real bar and night spot in Wilmington, NC. Wilmington is a college town; and they occasionally had concerts at that bar, where the courtyard would be filled with kids and a band.

Trivia: All the 'Ice House On Fire' scenes in this episode were filmed at the very end of shooting, and were the very last scenes shot before the show was wrapped for Season 2. Apparently, in general when they need to shoot scenes with a harder to produce element like fire, they put them off until the very end so they have more time to prep them.

Jen: Do you remember when you were ten and your Mom wouldn't get you that candy bar that you really, really wanted? Didn't you ever just... Swipe it?
Dawson: No.



At the end of the episode, Dawson is seated in the kitchen talking to Pacey in a normally loud voice. At the same time, Joey and Charlie are awake and talking in the pup tent in the living room, very close to the kitchen. Later in the Season we learn that Joey had no idea Dawson had driven down to Florida to see her, as apparently he left without seeing or talking to her. But being in such close proximity that morning; there is no way Joey would not have been able to hear Dawson's voice as he talked with Pacey. The living room was close enough to the kitchen, so it doesn't make sense that Joey wouldn't have known Dawson was there and if she did-she would have gone to talk to him.
