Welcome to the real world, Dawson, where the first person to stab you in the back is your best friend

None of the Above is the 3rd episode of Season 3 of Dawson's Creek.


CHEATERS NEVER PROSPER – Dawson (James Van Der Beek) is stunned when Eve (guest star Brittany Daniel) presents him with a sneak peak at the PSAT test and everyone is tempted to cheat including Joey (Katie Holmes), whose scholarship is dependent on her SAT scores, and Andie (Meredith Monroe), who is desperately fighting for acceptance to Harvard. But when the test is stolen, it's Pacey (Joshua Jackson) that Dawson accuses since he sees Pacey slipping back to his old ways. Meanwhile, Jack (Kerr Smith) is insistent that the football team is purposely beating him down because he is gay.
