Corrected entry: When Pacey goes over to Buzz's house to help him make meat loaf and mashed potatoes, Buzz is completely alone in the house. Buzz has made it clear (and mentions it again during this scene) that he is only 9 years old. Pacey also mentions during the scene that it was a 'good thing Mom had to work late tonight'. There doesn't appear to be a babysitter of any kind around. Legally a child under 12 requires supervision, yet Buzz was home alone when Pacey arrived.
Home Movies - S3-E4
Corrected entry: During the closing scene, Joey is seated in a chair watching her TV and the video tape Dawson had given her from their childhood. She would need a VHS Player in order to do this, but you can see that there is none on top of their TV. At that time, most people kept their VHS Players right on top of their televisions. It's possible that the VHS Player could have been located somewhere else in the room; but since Bessie and Joey are poor and live in a trailor/house with limited space, it's highly unlikely they would have an entertainment unit with electronics (including a VHS Player) on another wall. Logically it would make more sense for them to keep it on top of the TV in such a small room. But the TV is shown without a VHS Player on top of it.
Correction: I never have had a VCR, or any other component on top of my TV, they have always been under the TV. You don't have to have an expensive entertainment center for this, very cheap stands for TVs are available. They could have it just sitting on the floor, it would still work fine.
Corrected entry: Northern Lights cannot be predicted, especially not days ahead.
Corrected entry: When they are all leaving after AJ's award ceremony, Joey announces she wants to go back to AJ's dorm room. Morgan is not going back to the dorm, but is going out to the 'Arboraterium' which sounds like a club. Morgan has lent Joey her coat, but right before Morgan leaves, Joey catches her and hands her back her coat. Morgan accepts the coat without any protests and takes it with her. Why would Morgan accept the coat back from Joey when it's still cold out? This all seems rather illogical, as Joey still has to walk a distance in the cold night air without any type of covering over a scanty dress. She could have kept wearing Morgan's coat, since she and AJ were going back to his room in the dorm anyway and either one of them could have returned it to Morgan later. And handing it to Morgan when Joey still needs the coat is also illogical; as Morgan is not going back to the dorm but is going out to a club, and now has to carry two coats with her before eventually returning home. It would have made more sense for Joey to have returned the coat after she was through with it, at a more convenient time since Morgan was also living in the dorms. It also seems odd that AJ himself wouldn't have offered something of his for Joey to wear after Morgan left; as he had on a few layers of clothing including his outer coat, and she had bare shoulders as they walked in the freezing night air.
Correction: The arboretum is not a club, but refers to the Harvard arboretum, an outdoor area of trees.
Homecoming - S3-E2
Corrected entry: When Pacey and Joey go to the Clinic to pick up Andie, Pacey can't get past the clerk. Joey then hops onto the counter, and distracts the clerk by talking to her as Pacey crawls past on the floor to get to Andie's bedroom. So we understand how Pacey made it to Andie's bedroom, but what doesn't make sense is how Joey got there. After talking to the clerk, there is no way Joey could have just walked on up to Andie's bedroom without the clerk preventing her from going there after visiting hours. After all, Pacey couldn't walk up to Andie's bedroom because it was too late in the day, so why would the clerk allow Joey to? And Joey was in full view of the clerk, and therefore wouldn't have been able to sneak past her as Pacey did.
Correction: Obviously, the clerk was moved by Joey's history and let her go in.
Corrected entry: When Ethan invites Jack's father to go to dinner with them, Jack's father is about to put a frozen dinner in the oven. He agrees to go out to dinner, and puts the frozen dinner on the counter behind him. This isn't logical, as generally you would put a frozen dinner right back in the freezer if not using it. Otherwise it would thaw out and have to be refrozen.
Correction: There are plenty of frozen dinners that let you choose to cook them when they are frozen or thawed, if that is not the case this is just a character mistake.
First Encounters of the Close Kind - S3-E10
Corrected entry: When AJ brings Joey into the Harvard Rare Book And Manuscript Library, he gives her a rare copy of "Little Women". This is the First Volume of the originally published version of "Little Women", and in fact is Louisa May Alcott's own personal copy. So obviously this book is quite valuable. Yet Joey handles the book with her bare hands, albeit carefully. Normally when people handle rare, historic books and papers in a public institute, they are required to use white cotton gloves in order to not damage the materials or get fingerprints, oil etc. on the documents. It wouldn't normally be appropriate for Joey to handle such a rare, valuable publication from a Harvard Library without putting on white cotton gloves first.
Correction: Most ordinary people aren't aware of this. Since Joey is neither a librarian nor working in an archive there is nothing to suggest that she would be aware of this fact.
Corrected entry: Season 3 Ep. 1, "Like a Virgin": Dawson says he could sell his DVD player, and makes it sound as though it is worth $800 to $1,000. Yet whenever they show him bringing home rented movies, they are always VHS format. If Dawson is so into electronics, and ahead of the market with a cutting edge DVD player, why does he only rent VHS movies and his friends only bring over VHS movies to play in his bedroom? Wouldn't he be more excited to use his DVD player, which he never sold?
Correction: At that time you could not find any DVD movies to rent at places like Blockbuster, they only had a few, and they where always checked out, and alot of places did not rent them at all. Also most people did not have DVD players at that time, so they would only have tapes to bring over.
Correction: It is not a mistake if a character breaks the law, or uses poor judgment.
