Barefoot at Capefest - S3-E11

Plot hole: Jack and Jen go to Capefest, primarily because Jack wants to run into Ethan who invited him there for the festivities. Jack and Ethan spend time together at Capefest, and become friends. Ethan makes a comment that he wants to go straight to sleep because he is tired, and the next day was a big day, meaning 20 bands starting at dawn. But the next morning, before breakfast Ethan and Jack talk briefly, Ethan says 'Goodbye' and they go their separate ways without enjoying any of the music fun together. It doesn't seem plausible that Ethan would invite Jack to Capefest to enjoy the music scene, and then take off just when all the fun is starting on the main day. Why wouldn't they have spent the day together as friends enjoying all the bands and festivities which is what they went there for?

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.

Parental Discretion Advised - S2-E22

Trivia: Paul Stupin mentions this true story while discussing the show during the narrative for this episode. Once when Joshua Jackson (who played Pacey) was out swimming at night, there was a girl who was caught in some currents. He jumped in the water, swam out and brought the girl to safety. Joshua made the local newspapers as a "hero", and was known around Wilmington as 'the guy who saved the drowning girl'. The show also had a big ceremony on the set, where they gave Joshua a life preserver in honor of his heroic deeds. (00:06:10)
