Jen's a cheerleader and Jack's on the football team? OK, I got sane and everyone else went crazy?
—Andie at the Pep Rally
Homecoming is the 2nd episode of Season 3 of Dawson's Creek.


ALL THE RIGHT MOVES – Dawson (James Van Der Beek) is recruited by his dad (John Wesley Shipp) and Principal Green (guest star Obba Babatundé, "Miss Evers' Boys") to produce a film for the football pep rally, but the stars of the film end up being Dawson and his lady friend Eve (guest star Brittany Daniel), not the Capeside Minutemen. Meanwhile, Pacey (Joshua Jackson) has enlisted Joey (Katie Holmes) for assistance in bringing Andie (Meredith Monroe) back to Capeside, but their long-awaited reunion doesn't go exactly as Pacey had intended; and Jack (Kerr Smith) comes to an unexpected understanding with his father (guest star David Dukes) who has returned to Capeside to be with Jack and Andie.

You changed my life, Andie. You were that person for me. You inspired me to be a man that I’d only ever dreamed about  being. When you first started to get sick, it dawned on me that I might not be that person for you
It’s weird that it happens, isn’t it? You still love the person, but you stop needing them like you used to
