Classic Quotes by Katie Holmes and Joshua Jackson about their relationship:

"Before the show was even on the air, she asked me out. It was the first time I was ever tracked down by a beautiful woman. Life was good." Joshua Jackson
"You're very beautiful, Josh." Katie Holmes 2001
"There was this one time I got caught in a rainstorm with somebody, and we were dancing in the street. It was pretty romantic." Katie Holmes 1998
"I got along best with Katie Holmes who played Joey, I consider her one of my closest friends." Joshua Jackson 2004
"I'm just going to say that I met somebody last year. I fell in love for the first time and it was something so incredible and indescribable that I will always treasure it. He's now one of my best friends. It's weird, it's almost like a real-life Dawson-and-Joey type thing." Katie Holmes 1999
"[Josh] makes me laugh. He's really fun to hang out with and he's also very smart. I'm not sure if everybody knows that he is very smart." Katie Holmes 2004
"Lets just say that I've made it known to that person that my feelings for him went past friendship." Katie Holmes
"I will say, in our defence, that it wasn't difficult having a relationship with Katie. Our friendship, romantic or otherwise, is strong and we get along brilliantly, so all that stuff has never been too much of a problem." Joshua Jackson
"He's like Pacey. He steals the show. He's got a great sense of humour. He's intelligent." Katie Holmes
"Katie [Holmes], at the beginning of Dawson's Creek was so natural - she'd never really worked before, so the words would go in her ear and come out her mouth with no filter and it was beautiful to watch." Joshua Jackson 2/11/2007
"We're great friends. We did date. We fell in love. And I love him and now we have a friendship, which is nice." Katie Holmes 3/2001
"I haven't heard from [Katie] in a long time now, eighteen months. [...] You know, she's obviously moved off into a different part of her life, so I somehow doubt she's sitting around waiting for my call. I'd like to believe that, but I just don't think it's the case." Joshua Jackson 12/2006
"As easy as it is to make jokes about this, at the center of it is a woman that was once a very close friend of mine, so it's difficult for me to find the humor in this. But no, I don't mean extraterrestrial, I mean the married and baby portion." Joshua Jackson 12/2006
"I haven't talked to Katie for a year and a half, so I really can't comment on her [now]. When we started she was the sweetest, most innocent - I mean so green you couldn't believe it. When she started she didn't know marks. It was definitely learning experience for her. She just had this light. I mean she made [Dawson's Creek]. If it wasn't for her that show wouldn't have worked." Joshua Jackson 10/6/2006
"There can never possibly be enough kissing with Katie Holmes!" Joshua Jackson
"You could take her picture in the dark and she'd still look good." Joshua Jackson
"I'm more likely to go for a dark-haired man. I don't know, it's my thing. Someone who's intelligent but not showy. Especially in this business. You get so many people who always want attention - and it's so nauseating. It's like, 'Can you be normal?'" Katie Holmes
"I've really had more an opportunity to work with Katie which I wasn't given in the first two years, which is incredibly enjoyable, because I think she's really one of the best actresses on the market right now." Joshua Jackson
"It was the year anniversary of finishing the show last Sunday and I met up with Katie in London to celebrate." Joshua Jackson 2004
"Whenever you have a bad day, just go to Josh's trailer and he makes you feel so much better." Katie Holmes
"Josh and I are still really good friends and there's no ambiguity with us. When we shoot kiss scenes, Josh always bites my lips, he tries to destabilize me." Katie Holmes 5/4/2001
"I'm pretty fond of the woman in my life, so she is my current dream girl." Joshua Jackson 1998
"I've personally been happy with the series this year. I've been getting to work with Katie every day, and we get along like a house on fire." Joshua Jackson 2/2001
"[If Joshua Jackson and James Van Der Beek got into a fight], I think Josh might win with his wit." Katie Holmes
"I was 19 years old and he was 20 years old, so it wasn't easy right away [when we broke up]. But it's another part of growing up. And I'm glad that we work together, and even now we're good friends and we make fun of each other. It's funny because we get on each other's nerves, and we joke about it, and we tell each other." Katie Holmes 2001
"Josh and I dated. We're both single now. And everything's nice. It was pleasant. It was wonderful." Katie Holmes 7/1999

"That's true [that I'm really close to Josh], our relationship lasted during all the first season of Dawson's Creek and part of the second season. We are since really good friends, so Joshua was my first love. I'm not ready to forget him!" Katie Holmes 2/2002
"With Katie we, in my opinion, we had this very strong chemistry so when we work together you can really explore that vein and how to express all of those emotions so that you have that skill set so the next time you need it, you can bring that level of emotion into it when you are working with somebody else." Joshua Jackson 2001
"But to be honest, the only [cast member] that I've kept in touch with is Josh Jackson. We call each other every week since for a lot of years and I've came to London to applaud him, where he was playing a theatre's piece." Katie Holmes 3/2005

"Katie is very clean-cut. The only thing that's changed over the years is maybe she's been to a bar. The wild Katie is still something any parent can be proud of." Katie Holmes 2001
"[Josh has] been in the business so long, and he's really helped me. I respect him as a friend and as a professional." Katie Holmes 1999
"I would say Josh is - we're going to see a lot of him, a very talented actor and very fun to work with." Katie Holmes 1998
"At the time we were two kids going through a break up so the first year after that was a little tricky. Probably, though, it was the healthiest break-up I've ever had because we were forced to be all right with each other for five years after; we couldn't just ignore it and hope it would go away." Joshua Jackson 3/2005
"When she stops moving and you look into her eyes, you believe what she is saying." Joshua Jackson 2001
"When she spoke, she seemed so sweet and innocent but there was a sparkle in her eyes." Joshua Jackson 2001
"She's got that Cindy Crawford look. Wait until you meet her though - that's the capper. That's when you fall in love." Joshua Jackson 1999
"At this moment we're just good friends. We have a special bond because we dated, but that's all. Katie has a boyfriend and I would never want to be the reason for a breakup between them. I respect her too much for that." Joshua Jackson 2001
"I've really had more an opportunity to work with Katie which I wasn't given in the first two years, which is incredibly enjoyable, because I think she's really one of the best actresses on the market right now. She's really... she's effortless. I mean, there's a grace to her, to her performance... I don't think I can call it a polished grace; she just exudes it. I mean, maybe she does work at it when I'm not watching, but it just comes out of her, and she forces you to bring your best stuff to the table because if you don't, she just completely overpowers you. She... it's surreal." Joshua Jackson 2000
"She has 3 years of experience now (of or about), but when we started the show, I'd find myself, not that I have the kind of experience that Michael Douglas has, but, having worked for 8 years before they had at that point, watching each of them, but... especially Katie... she didn't even know how good she was. She didn't know what she was doing, it just came out." Joshua Jackson 2000
"I'd find myself in scenes, just watching [Katie], which is a very unusual thing because that's not really what I'm there to be doing. But, she's mind-boggling. She's exactly that, she's a natural talent." Joshua Jackson 2000
"In the last couple of years, [Katie's] life has become remote to me. I mean, what do you say about that? I haven't talked to her in however long she's been with Tom Cruise." Joshua Jackson 3/5/2009
"We were 19. I'm sure there was a reason [we broke up] at the time." Joshua Jackson 3/5/2009
