Dawson's Creek

True Love - S3-E23

Trivia: This scene where Jack finally kisses Ethan, was originally longer. The part not aired included Jack walking away, going back over to Grams and Jen and breaking down emotionally. Unfortunately, the added footage had to be cut due to time constraints. According to Paul Stupin in this commentary, scripts for "Dawson's Creek" always came in long. The running time was only approximately 42 minutes long for each episode, but they had cuts coming in up to 55-60 minutes long. Therefore, a lot of editing had to be done including cutting out this portion of Jack's scene. (00:30:05)

True Love - S3-E23

Trivia: Joey is standing in front of the wall Pacey has rented for her, with his painted message on it. In actuality, that same wall still exists in Wilmington, NC. There was a production issue about not being allowed to actually paint on the wall itself. So in order to film this scene; they had to build a smaller, phony brick 'wall' over the real wall for Pacey's message. If you look closely, you can see the phony wall sticking out from the original wall. (00:19:15)

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. (00:42:15)

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. (00:04:15)

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. (00:31:20)

100 Light Years From Home - S5-E19

Plot hole: 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.
