PWitter: I have absolutely no interest in having sex with you.
JPotter: Okay, then, I'll be sure not to share my decisions regarding birth control with you.
PWitter: Yes, best just to let me find out the bad way.
JPotter: Thanks, by the way, for your e-mail. It was sweet.
PWitter: Well, I meant it. Especially about the part where I implied you could feel free to ignore me if I was being a sex crazed mass of hormones.
JPotter: You really would feel comfortable if I talked to Gretchen?
PWitter: Well, yeah. But, you're not going to, are you?
PWitter: You can talk to Gretchen. But I like it better when you talk to me.
JPotter: Okay, well, I don't know about going on the pill or anything yet, but at least I'm starting to find out more about this stuff and getting more comfortable with it.
PWitter: Yeah... and you know I'm kidding, right.
JPotter: You're only partially kidding.
PWitter: So, only partially kidding. But serious about when I said you were worth the wait. Jo, it doesn't matter to me. Only the nagging question...
PWitter: It doesn't matter.
JPotter: Pacey, what? Come on, Bessie's trying to get on line and I don't want to leave things hanging!
PWitter: Okay, but I'm only saying this on the safe and happy assumption that I can say anything to you...
JPotter: Go ahead, Lloyd Dobler.
PWitter: It's not something I want to talk about, okay? But if you want to know, I guess I was just thinking how this situation could have been different if... well, you know, if your choice had been different.
JPotter: I don't have any words for this anymore. I don't even know how to convince you, aside from the fact that every morning I wake up and you're still the first person I want to talk to. You're the last person I want to talk to at night. You're it, Pacey.
PWitter: Thanks, Potter.
JPotter: Now I've gotta log off, but will you please think about one thing before you fall asleep?
JPotter: I'm crazy about you. And I shouldn't have to tell you that every day.
PWitter: I know that, Jo...
JPotter: And we're both going through a lot of stuff right now and thinking about college is really stressful...
PWitter: I know that, too
JPotter: But I do know how nice it is to hear.
PWitter: I'm crazy about you, Jo. Sleep well, Potter.
JPotter: You too, Pace. I'll see you in the morning.
PWitter: I look forward to it.
JPotter: Me too. Okay, now Bessie's really freaking out. Sweet dreams.

PWitter: Jo?IM 3
PWitter: Count me in for the walk. My skin is crawling.
PWitter: Gretchen is reliving her high school days with such intensity that she's looking over my shoulder while I do my English reading.
PWitter: You told her to, didn't you?
JPotter: No! I'm not that condescending. Are you coming here?
PWitter: Yes, I'll be there in fifteen minutes.
JPotter: See you soon.

JPotter: That guy Drue is a creep.
PWitter: What now?
JPotter: Nothing. He just sent me an annoying e-mail.
PWitter: I'm sure he's just trying to get a rise out of you. I recognize the trait.
JPotter: Pacey, there's a huge difference between you and Drue.
PWitter: Oh yeah?
JPotter: Yes. You don't have a heart of stone
PWitter: I'm awfully glad you don't think so.
JPotter: How're our weekend plans shaping up?
PWitter: Scary. I made the mistake of sibling bonding and now Gretchen's all excited. She wants to plan our date.
JPotter: That's sweet.
PWitter: Yes, if we weren't nearly adults and should be able to do these things on our own.
JPotter: We can do these things on our own.
PWitter: What kind of things?
JPotter: Come on, you know I don't do this stuff over the Internet.
PWitter: Well, if memory serves, we have a study date.
JPotter: We do indeed. 9:00?
PWitter: See you then.
JPotter: Take care.
