Dawson's Creek

Dawson's Creek (1998)

5 corrected entries in season 2

Reunited - S2-E20

Corrected entry: When Dawson and Joey enter the French restaurant, they discover that Dawson's father has used the reservation that Dawson made weeks ago under the name "Leery". The man at the restaurant tells Dawson that 'he didn't realize there were two Leery parties'. But this situation doesn't make logical sense. Dawson's father came in first, without a reservation and would have known the table being reserved under his last name was not for him, since he hadn't made the reservation himself. So why would he have rudely taken his son's reservation? The father would have had to have mentioned his last name, or he wouldn't have been seated at a table reserved for the "Leery party". So he must have known he was using someone else's reservation (it could have been his wife's even, still using her married name), which wasn't something the character would normally do. And he couldn't have made his own reservation, because then there would have been no problem seating Dawson and Joey with the second Leery reservation. It doesn't seem likely Dawson's father would take his son's table reservation under the circumstances.

Correction: They both called to make a reservation, the restaurant thought that "a table for two, reserved at Leery's name", was the same both times.

The Kiss - S2-E1

Corrected entry: When Dawson and Joey run into Jen in the hall at school, Jen mentions that 'she was going to see the day out' but decided to go home early instead. This was obviously early in the day, morning or lunch perhaps. But later when Jen arrives home from school and talks to Grams on the porch; Grams asks Jen 'how was her day' in a very matter-of-fact manner, and doesn't seem at all surprised that Jen has come home much earlier than usual. She acts as if Jen is coming home at her usual time, but this doesn't make sense as Jen is coming home much earlier and Grams should have noticed the difference.

Correction: Jen's grandfather had died the day before. It's possible she didn't go straight home from school. Or Grams was simply too emotionally distracted by her husband's passing to notice.

Psychic Friends - S2-E17

Corrected entry: At the beginning of this episode, Dawson and Jen are in their film class. The class was formerly taught by Mr. Gold, but was just taken over by "Miss Kennedy". Dawson and Jen are still sophomores in this second season. But during season one, we learned that Mr. Gold's film class was for juniors only; and he only let Dawson sit in as a 'Study Hall' type situation. So why, only a semester later in their sophomore year, are Dawson and Jen suddenly attending the actual film class as students, when it's supposed to be strictly for juniors only?

Correction: It's made pretty clear in the first instance that this was a rule imposed by Mr Gold himself, not the school.

A Perfect Wedding - S2-E18

Corrected entry: During the wedding, Andie spots Jen and Abby 'crashing' the wedding. She yells at them, and makes them leave. On the way out, Abby grabs an available bottle of champagne and takes it with her outside. Later, Jen and Abby both drink from this bottle; behavior which leads to Abby's death by drowning. It's illegal for a person of any age to carry alcohol from the premises where it is served, outside. It's also highly illegal for minors to drink and take alcohol with them from the same location. In this case, underage drinking led considerably to the death of a minor. Normally the institute that served this alcohol would have been in considerable legal trouble for serving (allowing) alcohol to minors, allowing alcohol to leave the premises and be taken outside, and also providing the alcohol that ultimately led to the drowning death of a minor. Whether the institute responsible was the club hosting the wedding, or Joey's family catering business; either way there would have been serious legal ramifications including the taking away of a liquor license. Yet in the show, none of this ever happened or was mentioned. It's also unreasonable that Andie's character, being very conscientious about rules; wouldn't have seen Abby take the bottle of champagne, and not allowed her out the door with it. Andie would more likely have grabbed it back from her and stated emphatically something to the effect of "it isn't legal to take alcohol out of the premises, and you're underage anyway" since she's such a stickler for doing things by the book. This was obviously overlooked as a plot contrivance, in order to allow the story of Abby's drowning.

Correction: I think that you're placing an awful lot of this 'mistake' on Andie noticing the alcohol leaving! I've worked in a bar and people do slip through the loop with a bottle under their coat or in their handbag! I know i've stolen enough glasses from pubs to know that they could have been full a few times. Although it could have been spotted I don't really think that we can really state that its a real mistake.

Uncharted Waters - S2-E12

Corrected entry: Towards the end of the episode, Pacey is reeling in the big fish. There is a wide shot of the rear of the boat, and everyone is standing there in a bunch. All 5 characters (Dawson, Jack, Pacey, Dawson's Dad and Pacey's Dad) are standing around Pacey as he works hard to catch the fish. So who is driving the boat? Pacey's Dad had been driving, but he came back to help Pacey reel the fish in. No-one else is onboard. But the boat is moving forward at a steady speed.

Correction: It's a pretty foolish thing to do, but you can push the throttle forward and walk away, leaving nobody to steer the boat, but still allowing it to move forward. Not a movie mistake, but a pretty reckless character mistake.

Mistakes

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.
