Kiss is the 3rd episode of Season 1 of Dawson's Creek.


TRUTH OR CONSEQUENCES -- Dawson's (James Van Der Beek) dream of a perfect, storybook first kiss with Jen (Michelle Williams) may finally be coming true, but his plans may not go according to schedule when Jen discovers a secret that breaks up the romantic moment; at school, Dawson has the opportunity to join the film class as a silent observer, but can't keep quiet when he sees the film is in trouble; Joey (Katie Holmes) finds herself swept away by Anderson Crawford (guest-star Ian Bohen), an attractive, wealthy preppy whose family has docked their sailboat in Capeside; and Pacey (Joshua Jackson) and Ms. Jacobs' (guest star Leann Hunley) secret rendezvous may no longer be so secret.
