Drue tricks their teacher into believing that Pacey and Joey are in the bus, when they're actually still sleeping in their room. Left behind, they're forced to go home by themselves, and talk about the night before. Pacey is insecure about his performance, and he and Joey have misunderstandings. Joey, hurt by Pacey's self-centered questions, brings up her insecurity, and says that she doesn't want anyone to know about it yet, specially Dawson, which leads into more fights. Meanwhile, as punishment for breaking into her hotel mini-bar during the class ski trip, Mr. Kasdan decides to send Jen to a psychologist where she can discuss her "inner teen issues." She feels awkward and uncomfortable, and decides to leave after realizing that Dr. Frost has no communications skills. Before leaving, Jen asks if she's too screwed up, and Dr. Frost answers her in a way she feels forced to stay. Dawson is forced to face Mr. Brooks's death and goes through all his belongings. Dawson is surprised to find out that he is Mr. Brooks's will and finds himself with a lot of money in his hands, and no idea of what to do with it, because he wants to do something Mr. Brooks would've liked. Back in Capeside, Joey and Dawson's paths collide and they spend an evening catching up on the past weekend and its many happenings. Dawson thinks Joey is different in some way, and she tries to drive his attention away. After a pleasant evening, Joey tells Dawson he'll always have a piece of his heart. Dawson reminds Joey of an old deal they made, and asks Joey the big question: did she, or did she not sleep with Pacey over the ski trip? Torn between hurting her best friend while being honest or lying to him and keeping him from another disappointment in life, Joey decides to lie and says she didn't sleep with Pacey.
