Joey agrees to be Pacey's temporary assistant after his recent promotion. But they both have second thoughts when their mutual jealousy leads to disaster in the office over a reporter, named Sadia, the same woman who met Pacey at the office party (in the All The Right Moves episode) which leads him to firing Joey. Meanwhile, Dawson sells his idea for a coming-of-age movie, but when the studio heads, Heather Tracy and Larry Newman, want to change the movie into a teen sex film, Dawson must decide if he should take the lucrative deal or stick with his original concept. After a talk with Todd, who is now directing music videos, Dawson decides to follow his instincts and become an independent. Also, an open-minded Grams is the intermediary that brings Jen and C.J. back together.
