Dawson's Creek

Dawson's Creek (1998)

6 factual errors in season 6

All Good Things... (1) - S6-E23

Factual error: In the third scene, when Doug stops Jack for speeding, both vehicles in the scene have North Carolina state safety inspection stickers in the lower driver side windshields, as opposed to a Massachusetts inspection sticker (which would be on the passenger side).

All Good Things... (1) - S6-E23

Factual error: When Jack is carrying Jen out of Pacey's restaurant, she bends her head down. You can see that her now very long, curly hair is real and has a natural part. But this episode was in reality filmed right after the preceding episodes in Season 6, not 5 years later. And in the later episodes of Season 6 Jen had dramatically shorter hair. Although in the context of being 5 years later Jen's much longer hair makes factual sense, in reality it isn't possible that she could have grown her hair out that quickly between the Finale and the episodes filmed before it. So how did she? The shorter hair didn't appear to be a wig.

All the Right Moves - S6-E12

Factual error: When Harley talks Joey into calling Eddy's parent's home in Worcester, Joey picks up the old dorm phone that has a handset cord attached. This doesn't make sense, because since Joey is calling long-distance to Worcester she would be more likely to use her cell phone which probably has a pre-paid plan. The old black phones are standard land lines, that come in the dorms; but the roommates both have cells and they also have a more modern wall phone.

Add time

The Kids Are Alright (1) - S6-E1

Factual error: When Joey is talking to the Professor, he mentions that her Birthday is the next day. Dawson also helps Joey celebrate her Birthday early at Midnight that night. Clearly this is some time in early Fall, when the Semester first starts at Worthington; probably August or September. But during the Season 5 Finale, Bessie hands Joey her Passport which has Joey's Birthday listed as May 13, 1983. Also, in previous years of the show, Joey's Birthday was never shown to be in the Fall. She didn't even start learning to drive until later in Season 3.

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

Factual error: Jen's room is full of flowers. Heart patients are never allowed to have flowers because of the high risk for infection.

The Song Remains the Same (2) - S6-E2

Factual error: Towards the end of the episode when Joey and Dawson are arguing about their relationship, Joey makes a statement that "Dawson bought the Champagne" referring to their romantic time on the movie set earlier that evening. However, when they were having that drink on the porch of 'Dawson's House' on the movie set; Dawson explained to Joey that the Champagne was from a free gift basket, one of many given to Directors before they start production on a new film. Therefore, Dawson never bought the Champagne, he simply stole it from the gift basket.

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.
