During a major hurricane Jen, Grams, Joey, and Bessie take refuge inside the large Leery house.

Episode Quotes
Well, I guess I'm no longer the Virgin Queen of Dawson Leery's hand-held fantasies.
Yeah, I think Dawson's having a life-defining/turning point in his life right now.
Aren't we all?
You know, taking into consideration his height, weight, feet and hand size, I -- I say he's slightly above average.
Jen: Oh, so you have thought about it.

Mitch: (to Gail) I don't want to love you anymore. I choose to hate you now.

Jen: We're not all as pious as you, Dawson. Some of us are not imaginary characters in a Spielberg film. Some of us live in reality

Jen: Oh, Grams, I forgot to tell you the Lord sent a fax while you were out. Something about the Armageddon.

Doug: Listen, Pacey! I'm not gay.

Episode Goofs
