kavuşuncaya dek, Dawson's Creek'ten şu sahne kalsın aklımızda. Dawson ve Joey, birlikte Age of Innocence (Masumiyet Çağı) filmini seyretmekteler. Dawson, film bitmeden televizyonu kapatır.
Joey: Hey there, abrupt?
Dawson: I've had enough unrequited love for one evening, okay? It's... it's too torturous.
Joey: I wonder what sick part of me thrives on movies with these kinds of love stories.
Dawson: The ones that end unhappily?
Joey: No. The kinds that never really end. I mean, think about it. To continue loving somebody even though there's no chance of that love ever thriving... that's romance.
Dawson: That is tragedy.
Joey: Not all love stories have a built in happy ending, Dawson.
Dawson: But why revel in the ones that don't?
Joey: I'm sorry...sad stories are just more powerful... I prefer them.
Dawson: Well, then do you think that...
(Dawson thinks. Joey looks at him.)
Dawson: Do you think that that kind of a preference has an affect on your own love story?
Joey: It absolutely does.
Dawson: And that doesn't worry you?
Joey: No. Because the effect is positive. It's movies like these that remind me of how unmovable and powerful love can be.
Dawson: But they don't end happily. I mean, Daniel Day Lewis never gets Michelle Pfeiffer.
Joey: It's not their fault! It's just the circumstances.
Dawson: But what good is their love if it's not strong enough to overcome those circumstances?
Joey: Because in spite of the circumstances... they never stop loving.
Dawson: So tell me, Joey Potter...
Dawson: (sincerely) Will you always love me? No matter what the circumstances?
(Joey smiles and kisses him.)
Joey: It doesn't matter. We get the happy ending.
