By the time they figured it out, Pacey and Joey had pretty much seen the best and worst of each other, and knew that they loved each other before they were even close to being together. Pacey broke up with Joey because he knew deep down that she had a need to grow, away from Capeside, before they could make an adult decision as big as promising to be together forever. But Joey remembered everything, too. And this is about how just last week when we were at miniature golf you took all of the shots first so I would know the correct path.
