Dawson's Creek

Four to Tango - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: When Jen walks into the Video Store, she is wearing a black top, red skirt and a black leather jacket that is completely open and unbuttoned. As she talks to Dawson, who is behind the counter, she says, "I'm working on a project with Pacey in a 'human growth and development' thing - is he here?" She is standing up, but leaning slightly forward against the counter and her coat is still widely open. But the next shot of Jen, as she says, "But he told me that he was working today," the black leather jacket is suddenly closed together as if buttoned, and she is leaning foward more on the counter. Then, after Dawson walks over to the movie rack and Jen follows him, her jacket is again hanging completely open and unbuttoned.

Four to Tango - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: When Jack and Andie are using the computer with Ben's Instant Message on the screen, there is a close-up of the computer screen as they wait for Ben's photo to download. Just to the right of the photo is the entire IM, which shows all 3 lines of dialogue between Ben and Jack. The last line says, "So. What do you think?" But after the photo is finished, there is a sudden 'beep' from the computer signalling another incoming IM message, which Jack then reads out loud as if it is a new message. But what he reads is, "So. What do you think?", the exact same line that was already in the IM box before the photo finished downloading. The implication is that he is reading a message that just came in, yet that line of dialogue from Ben was already present in the IM box previously.

The Importance of Not Being Too Earnest - S6-E3

Continuity mistake: When Joey accesses her email address book to send an email to Dawson, she inadvertently hits the address above his, sending her email to the entire Worthington campus. Dawson's email address in Joey's address book is DawsonLeery@worthington.edu. Dawson does not go to Worthington and would not have a campus email account.

Pilot (aka Emotions in Motion) - S1-E1

Trivia: There was an alternate scene filmed for the Pilot Presentation, where Tamara is first introduced in the Video Store with Pacey and Dawson. In this alternate scene; the location was an actual Video Store located in Southport, about 50 miles away from Wilmington, NC. They decided to reshoot the scene using a smaller Video Store in Wilmington that didn't look like a chain. Once the show was picked up for a Series, they needed a Video Store location that they could use easily every week. Also, in the alternate scene Tamara is wearing a more conservative outfit of black that covered her quite a bit. They put her in a much sexier dress for the aired version. Tamara's wardrobe and the location were changed to give a better tone to the show.

...Must Come to an End (2) - S6-E24

Question: The ending scene of the Series Finale shows Joey and Pacey apparently living together in a high-rise apartment. The TV looks the same as her NYC apartment, and there is a beautiful window view of lighted high-rise buildings and a harbor or bay. The question is - is this Boston or NYC? Are they living in her previous NYC apartment, or did they find a new place together in nearby Boston? It looked to me more like Boston, but Pacey had just started his restaurant business in Capeside and that is an hour away. Where are they living at the end of the series? It was vague to me.

Answer: It's the same apartment Joey had in NYC. Comparing it to the beginning of the Finale; you can tell it's exactly the same location, furnishings, Plasma TV etc. Apparently Chris was only living with her at HER apartment, and now Pacey has taken his place at the end. I guess this implies Pacey successfully started his own restaurant business in NYC as he had dreamed, to be with Joey.
