Your sincerity is so appealingly sexy.
ANDIE
And your sexiness is so appealingly sincere.

PACEY WITTER
I can't keep kissing you, Joey.
JOEY POTTER
What do you mean?
PACEY WITTER
I mean just that. *I* can't keep kissing *you.* I've done it twice now. I can't be the one always initiating things. I can't be the one always giving you the answers. Look at me.
JOEY POTTER
I can't.
PACEY WITTER
Please. If you felt one shred of what I'm feeling for you, we wouldn't be standing here having this conversation. [starts to walk away]
JOEY POTTER
[grabs his hand] Pacey [turns around and starts kissing him]

I'm a better catch than Tye the Bible-beater or that skirt-chasing Neanderthal Chris Wolfe.
JENNIFER "JEN" LINDLEY
This coming from the guy whose past two relationships have ended with the girl either leaving town to avoid prosecution or cool out in crazy camp for the summer?

PACEY WITTER
See this? This is you. It's not showy or gaudy. It's simple. Elegant. Beautiful.
JOEY POTTER
It's my mom's bracelet.
PACEY WITTER
I know.
JOEY POTTER
How do you know?
PACEY WITTER
Well, because you told me. Six months ago. You were wearing that blue sweater with the snowflakes that you have. You were walking down the hallway at school. I was annoying you as per usual. You said, "Look, Pacey, I just found my mother's bracelet this morning, so why don't you cut me some slack?"
JOEY POTTER
You remember that?
PACEY WITTER
I remember everything.

RICH RINALDI
Pacey, you are so good at your job that often I forget how young, naive, and stupid you are.
PACEY WITTER
Rich, I really don't need the speech from you right now.
RICH RINALDI
Oh, I think you do. And in response to your request, I'm going to tell you what you should have told your friend in the first place: no!
PACEY WITTER
Wait, that's it? I come to you, I embarrass myself, and all you can tell me is just a big, plain "no"?
RICH RINALDI
Pretty much, yeah.
PACEY WITTER
You know Rich, you are so good at your job too that often I forget what an unfeeling prick you are!

PACEY WITTER
Dawson, there's something I need to tell you. It... oh boy. This is bad. We were so getting back to becoming friends again. It's a shame to ruin our friendship this way.
DAWSON LEERY
What are you talking about? What would ruin our friendship?
PACEY WITTER
Money, Dawson. That's what would ruin it.
DAWSON LEERY
What happened?
PACEY WITTER
[sighs] It's gone, Dawson. It's all gone. Every cent. Your money is gone. My money is gone. Some guy on Long Island money is gone.
DAWSON LEERY
What do you mean "gone"? Pacey, that was all the money I had!
PACEY WITTER
I know. Those bio-tech stocks that I put it all in... I-I don't know how this happened. I really thought Stepavich would take off. Everyone was saying that it was the sure thing. Some FDA announcement came back the day before yesterday at finding some side effects that it's wonder drug had on test subjects. The whole company is in bankrupcy. The stock is worthless. From 80-per-share to zero in a...
JOEY POTTER
[shocked and angry] Not again. Pacey, not again with you!
DAWSON LEERY
[also shocked and angry] Oh, yeah right... right! Typical, so typical! Why else would you... Pacey! Why did you bluntly ignore my request to sell the stock on the day before this FDA annoucement was to take place?
PACEY WITTER
I don't know. I was trying to do the right thing. I thought it would double or triple in value when...
DAWSON LEERY
[interupting] Oh Jesus... God, Pacey! It's the same damn story with you! You ALWAYS try to do the right thing! But no matter how hard you try to help others or yourself, you don't have the intelligence or the common sense to see all the pieces of the puzzle. You never did. And you probally never will! God, of all the the countless times you let me down, screwed me over, you really did it this time!
PACEY WITTER
Now wait a minute. Need I remind you that you came to me with your dream. I didn't approach you. You approached me. You were the one that took the chance. You wanted me to help you with your dream of being a great film maker. You gave me your money to help you double it and to finance your movie. Yet again, this boils down to the fact that "I" screwed your over? If that's not a typical reaction on your part, then what is?

RICH RINALDI
Here, take this pen and write down today's date. Because from this day fourth, you will amount to nothing. You are failure and a loser! You deserve to get what's coming...
PACEY WITTER
Stop calling me a loser! Don't you ever call me a loser!
RICH RINALDI
[taunting] Oh, what are you gonna do about it... loser? Loser! Loser...
RICH RINALDI
Don't worry, it's over. You're through. You're fired. You're finished. You'll never work in this company, in this town... or in this state again! Why do you look so down? This is what you wanted all along, right? Loser! [looking down at the floor, Pacey sorrowly walks out]

PACEY WITTER
[to the weird and ugly diner patrons] All right, which one of you inbred, redneck, freaks crashed into my car tonight? Show of hands, anyone? Was it you? Or you? Come one, someone say something.
VIC
Get outta my diner!
PACEY WITTER
Oh no, mister. I will not. One of your patrons in here smashed into my car out on the road just a few minutes ago.
VIC
Not my problem, boy!
PACEY WITTER
Oh, but it is your problem. If the person is in here and you're hiding him...
VIC
[bearing his rotting, clenched teeth] Leave!
PACEY WITTER
Oh my! You really should think about seeing a dentist.
