First Encounters of the Close Kind - S3-E10

Trivia: When Joey and Dawson are lying on his bed talking, Joey has army-style boots on and Dawson has no shoes on, wearing only his socks. The reason for this odd arrangement is probably due to the fact that the director for this episode, James Whitmore Jr., wanted Katie Holmes to keep her shoes on so she could make a fast exit out of the room. He wanted to keep the scene short and sweet.

Trivia: The Train Station shown in this scene was not a real Train Station. It was actually a building located in downtown Wilmington.


First Encounters of the Close Kind - S3-E10

Trivia: Meredith Monroe was known for clowning around on the set while filming to raise morale. When morale on the set was low, she would run into the wardrobe truck and put on her red tights and homemade yellow cape with a big "F" printed on the front. She was "Captain Fun", and would jump around on the set making everyone laugh to get energy up again.


First Encounters of the Close Kind - S3-E10

Trivia: When Joey walks up to AJ's dorm room at Harvard, there is a large number 381 shown on his door. This may not be intentional, but it's interesting that the number could be broken down into 8+1=9 times 3, which equals 27. 27 has been a number used a few times on "Dawson's Creek", including two room numbers; and seems to have some signifance to the show.


First Encounters of the Close Kind - S3-E10

Trivia: When Dawson and Nikki are walking along the outside corridor, the scene was actually filmed at the local college in Wilmington; the University Of North Carolina, Wilmington. Also, the big beautiful vista shots of the University in a number of scenes in this episode were filmed at the University of Richmond. As Paul Stupin points out in the Commentary, the College environment is constructed with a mixture of a lot of different locations.

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.
