```Jason,

Right, we don't want the axes cutting through the middle of the data!

The easiest method is to use a two-sided Frame.

dataset = Table[{x, x/2 + Sin[x]}, {x, -5, 5, 0.2}];

ListPlot[dataset,
Frame -> {True, True, False, False},
Axes -> None,
Prolog -> {AbsolutePointSize[3]},
ImageSize -> 450];

Or with DrawGraphics this could be done more simplt as

Needs["DrawGraphics`DrawingMaster`"]

Draw2D[
{AbsolutePointSize[3],
Point /@ dataset},
Frame -> {True, True, False, False},
ImageSize -> 450];

I want to force the x-axis to lie on the bottom of the graph regardless
of a specific dataset. What's the best way to do this? I've been trying
plotting the dataset and grabbing the lower-right corner of the
plotrange with AbsoluteOptions. This works but seems absurdly
complicated and I feel like I'm missing the forest for the trees. Is
there a better way than this:

firstplot = ListPlot[dataset, DisplayFunction -> Identity];
ListPlot[dataset, AxesLabel -> {"x", "y"}, AxesOrigin ->
{AbsoluteOptions[firstplot, PlotRange][[1, 2, 1, 1]],
AbsoluteOptions[firstplot, PlotRange][[1, 2, 2, 1]]}, DisplayFunction
-> \$DisplayFunction];
