Um, what?!?!

This post may make some of you think I am insane, but in reality I just have a fantastic memory when it comes to certain things.

Recently I started watching the (supposedly) acclaimed Showtime series Californication. I am not a fan. But that's not the point.

The point is, as I was watching it I heard David Duchovny utter the line, "It was the best of times. Mistakes were made, hearts were broken, and harsh lessons learned." And my brain did this weird little skip, because I KNEW I had heard it before. I thought about it a little, and finally decided figured out that it was on Dawson's Creek, near the end of the show. So I bust out my trusty DC DVDs, and sure enough: Katie Holmes says the exact same line in "Goodbye, Yellow Brick Road," the second-to-last episode of the hit teen show.


Then I realize something else is familiar. Tom Kapinos, the creator of Californication, was an executive producer for Dawson's Creek. Something about this just doesn't sit right with me. Thoughts?

Maybe the character is quoting Dawson's Creek? Nah, I don't buy that... So I guess it's just straight plagirism.

I am on the fence about Californication. The ending of season 1 is horrible.
