We try to forget that the "Dawson's Creek" college years ever happened -- except for that one episode with Joey and Pacey in a K-Mart -- but Joey (Katie Holmes) did have a brief flirtation with Professor Wilder (Ken Marino) during her freshman year at Worthington, which we're forced to acknowledge for the purpose of this gallery.
He challenged her, they worked on a project together, and they kissed. When she was mugged on her way back to see him in the most bizarre episode ever (she was the only "Dawson's Creek" character in it), they decided that their romantic relationship was probably a bad idea. Spoiler alert: It totally was. The worst.
Can we go back to forgetting this ever happened now? Thanks.
