Degrassi The Next Generation Reviewed

Ah yes, the companion blog to Degrassi Junior High Reviewed. Each episode will be reviewed in order by a guy who loves the next generation's melodrama.


Season 2, Episode 18, “Dressed In Black”

So this one is a good one. I’ve noticed that all the episodes that have to do with the older cast members are of better quality. All the underclassmen focused episodes are completely shitty, unless it’s a Sean episode.

Pre-credit opener: Jimmy and Ashley are hanging out in her dark room and she’s subjecting him to all of her shitty emo music. You can tell Drake wants to rap his way out of there. But he’s fucked because Ashley is his girlfriend again, and he’s forced to listen and lie to her that her music is good. It isn’t. Ashley’s music sucks so bad. She goes on about connecting with him on an emotional level, but you can tell that he’s already clocked out of that relationship.

Ashley, Jimmy

The next day Jimmy runs into Ashley and shows her last years year book. He makes her sign the goddamn thing and she goes on about looking awful the previous year. That’s when resident Degrassi Haley Joel Osment look alike Sully makes his first appearance. He talks shit about Ashley being a freak and Jimmy of course doesn’t beat the shit out of him for her honor. But then again, Jimmy is a big puss who get’s his ass kicked all the time.

Oh great, we come upon JT and Toby and JT is way too excited about Dr Sally coming in again to give her sex pep talk. He must be really hard up if he’s excited to hear her sex stories. Not even Toby is hoping for porn in that case. But he’s disappointed to hear that Coach Armstrong is going to be giving the sex lecture due to Dr Sally hurting her hip during a really intense geriatric sex session. Coach Armstrong starts to talk about Abstinence being the best thing to practice. Manny asks him what it means and he tells her that it’s best not to bone. Something that Manny won’t listen to in later seasons. Anyways, JT playing with a condom accidentally launches it and it lands on Armstrong’s back and hilarity ensues.

JT, Armstrong, Condom

We cut to Ms Kwan’s class and she’s giving out an assignment. Which is to act out a scene from Bill Shakespeare’s immortal classic, The Taming Of The Shrew. At least this assignment is at related to English class. Last time she had them doing some shit that had nothing to do with the subject. Ashley is disappointed that Jimmy is paired with Hazel, while she get’s stuck with Craig.

Outside of class Craig has a leaf crown. He’s been hit so hard by his dad, he now thinks he’s Julius Caesar. They both come up with doing a really depressing emo version of the scene they’re supposed to do. You can tell that she likes it that he thought the same thing.

Craig, Ashley

During lunch, Toby tells JT that he’s confused on when one should buy condoms. JT tells him that there’s no time like the present. But what he really should have told him was that there is no chance in hell that Toby is ever, ever going to get laid. But this being Degrassi, it recycles another plot from Degrassi Junior High and it’s the time when Joey and Wheels went to go buy condoms.

Back inside the school Ashley runs into Jimmy at his locker and she spots a picture of her from the last season and tells him to burn it. Man she’s so dark! She invites him home for dinner that night and you can tell that he really doesn’t want to go. Hey, I’ve been there before. It sucks.

Ashley, Jimmy, Hallway

We cut back to Toby and JT and they’ve picked out a box of Magnum condoms. Yeah right. Both of their dicks combined wouldn’t fill out that thing. Toby obviously being a Star Wars fan picks out some glow in the dark condoms and they have themselves a little mock lightsaber fight with some canes. As they’re going to check out to buy the condoms JT makes an ass of himself by asking the clerk for her phone number. The stocker behind him is so disgusted, he can’t help making a face.

JT, Toby

Finally, it’s the big dinner scene and Ashley starts going on about how kids should be educated on sex and should be given condoms. This starts out a big debate on the dinner table and she totally puts Jimmy on the spot on what he thinks. I fucking hate it when people pull that shit. Instead of telling her that he wants to keep out of this messed up family discussion, he tells her that he sides with Toby’s dad that it gives out a bad message to kids. She get’s all pissed off at him for reluctantly giving his answer. I swear, you can’t win with people like her.

Jimmy, Ashley

Back at Degrassi, Toby being a big puss gives JT the condoms to hold in his locker, saying that they’re his problem since he made him buy them. Spinner, Emma and Manny just happen to come along and Spinner sounds completely retarded trying to say lines from the play, so JT just can’t resist pointing out how stupid he sounds. At that he shoves JT into the locker and the condoms come tumbling out. Right away everyone figures out that they’re Toby’s. Spinner get’s so enraged that he vows to rip his balls off.

In the hallway, Ashley get’s Craig to take a pic of her with this gigantic Polaroid camera. Jimmy comes along and tapes it right next to her old picture, disappointing her even more. She get’s all pissed off about it and finally Jimmy admits to her that he likes the old, non scary, not so uptight Ashley.

Now Ashley is having an identity crisis. She wants to stay Goth, but at the same time she wants to please Jimmy. What’s a girl to do? Yup, she tries to please Jimmy and goes to school dressed normal, but of course now she’s all uncomfortable. Especially with a couple of skank’s making fun of her. Ellie comes along and can’t hide her disdain. But it’s not like Ashley was being original or herself either. She was just copying Ellie’s style. Jimmy comes along and he’s happier than a pig in shit that she’s no longer dressed like Winona Ryder was in Beetlejuice. My opinion is that she looks better non goth.

Ashley, Non Goth

In the MI class Toby and JT are terrified of Spinner. Spinner seems to have either made a website or a really elaborate email. It describes and has an animated gif about how he’s going to decapitate Toby and shit down his neck. But I doubt Spinner could come up with such complicated graphics since he is a big dummy. Toby runs when he see’s that Spinner is directly behind him. Just as he thinks he’s getting away he runs into Kendra and she man handles him and slams him against the lockers. She yells at him and asks, “How old am I?” Toby says 12 and she says, “That’s right! This relationship is never getting past talking about Cowboy Bebop!!”

Toby, Kendra

Outside Ashley is hanging out with Paige and her crew. They’re talking about some idiotic commercial and Terri tells her that they’ll get her back in the loop of things. I guess the loop of things is talking about stupid bullshit. Paige tells her that the goth look was actually working for her and asks why she reverted back to her boring self. Ashley just mumbles something and walks away. I gotta say, she does look out of place hanging out with them.

Hazel, Terri, Paige, Ashley

Out in the Degrassi haunted forest, Craig is waiting for Ashley so they can rehearse their scene. He acts all shocked that she actually looks decent, maybe a bit butch, but still feminine. Anyways, Craig tells Ashley exactly what she wants to hear from Jimmy, which is if someone really loves you, they’ll accept everything about you. Even the fucked up annoying parts. And that ladies and gentlemen is how you weasel yourself into a sad girls pants.

In the next scene Spinner grabs Toby and tells him that his ass is grass. But instead of just beating the shit out of him, he lets Toby tell him the reason why he bought the rubbers to begin with which is that he really likes his sister and if he porked her, he wanted to take care of her. Seems like Spinner was so touched it made his asshole clench and instantly forgives Toby. Kind of the whole Martha thing in Batman V Superman. But then Toby does a dickhead move and tells him that it was JT’s idea to buy the condoms, so now JT is in deep shit.

Toby, Spinner

Finally it’s time for everyone’s scenes and Jimmy and Hazel are dressed like a football player and cheerleader. They have everyone laughing for some reason. Up next is Craig and Ashley and yeah, their scene is real messed up. Craig seems to be channeling his dad and it seems like he’s going to fuck Ashley up. Shit, he even resembles his dad. Everyone is in complete shock. Marco starts crying, telling them to stop because Ashley’s already dead.

Ashley, Craig

In the hallway Spinner brings Toby into a room and see’s that JT has been tied up and is wearing a bunch of prophylactics. To humiliate JT even more, Spinner turns off the lights and now the condoms start to glow. Yeah, pretty unfunny and doesn’t even warrant a screen shot.

At Drake’s locker, Ashley comes up to him dressed all in black again (Hey, that’s the name of the episode!) and hands him a note. Basically she breaks up with him because he was trying to change her. The funny thing is, in the next season she’s going to change her look and no one is going to give two fucks about it. He should have told her that she’s just going through a phase. Might I point out that she’s the one broken up about it, meanwhile Jimmy is waiting for her to turn the corner so he can break dance, since he’s so happy that he’s finally gotten rid of his downer of a girlfriend.

Ashley, End Credits

So yeah, even though JT and Toby were kind of ruining this episode. I still enjoyed it. I guess I like bullshit drama and baby, whenever Ashley is involved, there’s always bullshit drama.

Season 2, Episode 14, “Careless Whisper”

Pre-credit opener: We see the dudes playing a pick up game of basketball, shirts vs skins. Right off the bat we know that Marco is gay as hell because he can’t take his eyes off of Sean’s glistening body. Not that there’s nothing wrong with that. Sean catches him and says, “What’re you looking at fag?” The first time I saw this I was all, Whoa! Because this line of dialog was definitely censored when it aired on the N. I swear the N edited a lot of shit for us Americans. I guess they didn’t want to deal with any controversy. Anyways, Marco tries to play it off, but we all know better.

MarcoSean, Spinner

We come back to Marco and Ellie and you can tell that she has a major thing for him. She asks him if what she’s wearing is ok and he asks her since when does she care about what people think of what she’s wearing. She says that she only cares about what he thinks. Marco you can tell is panicking right away because he has zero interest in her except to be her friend. He spots Jimmy and Spinner and hauls ass. Ellie mentions to Ashley that she wants to go out with him, thus proving that Ellie has horrible gaydar.

Marco, Ellie

In the MI lab, Snake is telling the students that that old schivosa Dr Sally is making a return to Degrassi. Ellie’s all, “Who the fuck is that?” And Snake lets her know that she’s an expert in all things sex and you can tell he’s really excited because Dr Sally can teach him a thing or 12 about it. (Going off for a bit, me and my girlfriend went to a diner just this weekend and the waitress looked just like her, but she wasn’t cool like Dr Sally was. This old crow was a bitch and didn’t deserve a damn tip at all because she was rude as hell. She even complained about having to check what kind of soup they had available. I was like, well that is part of your fucking job. My girlfriend is still laughing about it because I’m still fuming about it days later.) Anyways, Jimmy asks Snake why Dr Sally is coming again since they saw her last year. Snake just says that they always have something to learn about. Spinner takes that as an opportunity to say something homophobic and you can tell that it hit a nerve with Snake because of his gay, horse faced brother Glen and how he and his family disowned him when he came out to them in Degrassi Junior High. Check it out here:

Wow, we get to Dr Sally right away and she busts out a bunch of condoms like she’s making it rain with money, except it’s condoms. She tells the class, “If you can’t be careful, name it after me.” She goes onto the subject of straight and same sex sex. Spinner and Jimmy are curious about what makes a gay dude get really horny and Dr Sally basically says that a big, meaty dick will do the trick for them. Paige jumps into the convo and says that she has an older brother who’s gay and he claims that he was born that way, that he always knew. Dr Sally tells her that some people think that and other’s think that it’s genetic. During all this Marco is conflicted as hell. Especially when Terri says that being gay is a sin, and Dr Sally says that the greater sin is to not be yourself.

Dr Sally

Because this show hates me, we cut to the B plot and it involves Toby smothering his Jackie Chan looking girlfriend, Kendra. He completely humiliates her by standing outside of Snake’s class like Micheal Myers and then he starts to make a kissy face. Snake get’s so disgusted he shuts the blinds to spare the rest of the class the plague that is Toby. Kendra just can’t help making this retarded looking face.


Class is dismissed and Ellie walks up to Dr Sally and asks her advice about how she can bag Marco. Dr Sally gives her sound advice, but if she only knew that Marco only craves the man cock. Spinner being Spinner calls Marco Marcy and gives him some fem care. This causes Marco to get all pissed off and says, “I hate fags ok, what they do makes me sick.” But then he tells Spinner to cut his shit out already or else he’s going to bend him over and send him home with a, I just pumped the neighbor’s cat look on his face.

Outside Toby is making an ass of himself with Kendra and she tells him that maybe he should cool it because she got in trouble with Snake. Toby mentions that he got in trouble too because he was caught jerking off in the girls restroom. He then shows his stalker, possessive side by telling her that he made a schedule for her in the guise of helping her out with her grades. Her body language is apparent and who can blame her? I noticed that he’s always up in her face. She get’s so creeped out by him she tells him to stop and leaves in a huff. Milhouse is really confused because he has no idea how to handle a woman.

Toby, KendraKendra's Schedule

Ok, since when is Snake a damn expert on film and techniques? Because he’s telling the class about noticing the directors technique in a commercial or whatever. I thought he was just a computer geek. But then again, the class is called Media Immersion. What a bullshit class if you ask me. Seems like school is out for the day and Marco waits for everyone to leave so that he can check out a gay website to confirm that he’s gay and proud. It’s short lived though because Spinner and Drake come along and ask him if he wants to go walking home with them. After clicking the hell out of the mouse to get out of the site, he tells them no.

Out on some bench Ellie finally get’s the nerve to talk about whether they’re just friends or not. Marco still fighting the gayness within him tells her that they should go out on a date since they like each other alot. Ellie is clearly happy, but you can tell that Marco is like GOB in Arrested Development and is saying in his head, “I’ve made a huge mistake.”

Ellie, Marco

It’s finally date time and things couldn’t be more awkward. Marco holds her hand and she instantly get’s happy, but Marco not feeling it fakes a sneeze and Ellie again instantly get’s disappointed. It’s a new day and Ashley is telling Terri that Jimmy is coming over for a project and she’s nervous because it’s the first time that he’s back at her house after she called him out for being  lame square and cheating on him with Sean. Ashley finds Ellie and she makes it all obvious that she had a horrible date with Marco, even though she has fun being with him. Ellie is afraid that he doesn’t like her more than a friend and that’s when Ashley says that maybe he’s not into any females. At that Ellie get’s all pissed off at her and basically tries to call Ashley a homophobe. But it’s pretty obvious that Marco likes the man meat.

Ellie, DateAshley, Ellie

At Kendra’s locker, Toby is decorating the hell out of it like a prissy school girl. Manny comes along and points out that he’s smothering her because she did the same mistake with Craig. He reasons that if she see’s that he’s willing to do anything for her, she’s bound to respect him. But of course Kendra get’s pissed off at the gesture, rips a heart in half, (which she basically did to his real one) and leaves for her next class. Milhouse is obviously left heartbroken. Manny can’t help being a shithead and says, “Told you.” And leaves all happy.

Manny, Kendra, Toby

In the locker room, or the Playgirl mansion according to Marco, Spinner being a fuckhead still calls Marco Marcy again and this time Jimmy get’s annoyed with him because his bits are getting old fast. Marco bullshits all of them and tells all the dudes that he’s going out with Ellie. He lets on that something happened on their date, but of course he can’t think of anything plausible and they all figure out what a fucking liar he is.

Outside the school, Marco and his crew come along and he tries to lie to them, but mostly himself that he’s into Ellie. He goes over to her like he’s fucking Lord Byron and starts to mack with Ellie. I’m surprised he didn’t make gagging noises because he’s so not into her sexually. She’s clearly happier than she’s ever been in her miserable life. Poor Ellie, she doesn’t deserve that.


Kendra comes along and Toby can’t help acting like a bitch and tells her that she doesn’t like him anymore because he’s always up her ass.

Finally the Degrassi kids are at Ashley’s watching some sort of National Geographic bullshit. It was so boring that it put Spinner to sleep, until Ashley walks in with a couple of pizza pies. I just noticed that Toby isn’t around. She must have tied him up like an animal in the basement to avoid further embarrassment. The dudes start to dig in and Marco tells them, “Ladies first.” Spinner then tells him, “Well after you Marco.” Marco did walk into that one. One point to Spinner. Ellie get’s all annoyed at him and she invites him up to go to Ashley’s room. They all assume that they’re going up there to fool around. But if they only knew.

As soon as Marco walks into the room Ellie jumps his bones and starts to make out with him like crazy. She then asks him to sit on the bed and she obviously wants to get down to some old fashioned heavy petting, but Marco starts to cry and Ellie, heartbroken obviously knows that he’s gay. Finally Marco can’t take it anymore and confesses to her that he thinks that he might be batting for the other team, but he’s really confused.
Ellie, Marco Crying

At his locker Toby is taking down all of Kendra’s pictures because he’s so sure that she’s going to break up with his puny dweeb ass. Kendra comes along and basically tells him that she does like him, but that he just has to back his shit off for a bit and to let her have some free time away from him. I know I need some time away from Toby.

At Marco’s locker Jimmy and Spinner are totally fooled with Marco and Ellie. She tells the dudes that they should be totally jealous and gives Marco a smooch on the lips. Marco is doing his best not to look all disgusted. And at that, Ellie has decided to play along and has now become his beard. The episode ends with Ellie telling Marco that she can’t pretend forever, and neither can he. She mentions a gay youth group, but Marco tells her that he’s not ready for that shit yet, he has a plan and it involves gay twink porn. I think it’s a good idea. Just ease into it Marco.

Marco, End Credits

I think this was a good episode. We clearly see the pain that Marco is going through, trying to come to terms with his sexuality. I can’t imagine a more awkward and painful time to realize something like that. Too bad Toby had to be thrown into the mix, but his story line was barely in the episode, so we all won that round. But this episode is only a small taste of what’s coming for the future of Degrassi. At this current season of the show, it’s homosexual high.


Season 1, Episode 6, “The Mating Game”

Pre-credit opener: Ashley is showing Terri a necklace that has the initials A and J on it. And she asks her if she thinks that Jimmy will like it. Terri assures her that she will, even though the thing is huge and ugly and I would never want to be caught dead in it. Mrs Kwan tells the class that they’ll be breaking up into groups and do scenes from Romeo and Juliet. Spinner right way disapproves. Ashley all pissed off says that Jimmy is Romeo but that she’s playing the nurse. That’s when it’s revealed that the worst possible person is playing Juliet and that’s right it’s Paige. Ashley can’t help looking at her with hatred in her eyes.

Paige Jimmy Ashley

In the Media Immersion class JT excitedly tells Toby that that old skivosa Dr Sally is coming to Degrassi. I can’t believe that she’s still alive because she already looked ancient in Degrassi Junior High. JT’s down about it though cause she’s only talking to the 8th graders. JT is seriously depraved because he’s heard that she brings in really graphic props. Leave it to him to be able to wack off to a clinical looking vagina model.

Snake then starts to teach and tells them that they’re going to be creating a website on an animal of their choice. Emma acts like motherfucking Arnold Horshack from Welcome Back Kotter and says, “OH, OH!!” She starts to talk about some endangered animal that I’m too lazy to google how it’s spelled. Sounds like she’s saying Mamaono. Or some shit like that. Anyways, Snake approves of her nerd website and tells everyone to have fun with the project. While Snake is going on about the project Toby’s having demented fantasy’s about Emma. The close up looked a little too much like that Savage Garden video. Sean interrupts him and thanks him for helping him out.

Emma fantasy Toby fantasy

Dr Sally is with the 8th graders and is talking about how guys get a hard on. Of course they’re all immature and they just giggle at any sexual thing that she says. She then starts to talk about condoms and safe sex. She busts out a banana and explains how to put a condom on a fully engorged penis.  Again this elicits more giggles from the class. Spinner then starts to talk about Jimmy and Ashley, not mentioning names of course, but it’s obvious he means them. Anyways, he asks her when they’re supposed to know when they should do the nasty. Dr Sally explains that physically they’re good to go, but emotionally, no. Drake all pissed off tells him, “What are you doing?!”

Dr Sally

After class Terri says that she’ll never look at a banana the same way again. Ashley is furious at Spinner and she wants to cut his balls off. Paige then asks what is going on with them since they have been going out for 8 months now. Ashley then shows this lame heart that Jimmy made for her for their anniversary. Paige being a bitch can’t contain her contempt for the thing.

In the cafeteria Spinner is actually reading some Bill Shakespeare and he loves the fact that Romeo and Juliet boned at 13. Paige comes by and flirts with Jimmy, telling him that she’s memorized her lines already. Some nameless extra who actually got lines tells Spinner and Jimmy that he heard that Paige totally fucked a camp counselor last Summer. Jimmy then reminds nameless student that he has a girlfriend already.

Nameless extra

We then cut to Liberty desperately telling JT that she can finish his assignment since she get’s straight A’s. I have no idea what the fuck they’re talking about. Oh, I guess the stupid website project. They start to talk about their boring assignments and Toby is being a big kiss ass with Emma talking about endangered species and wants to watch some DVD with her. Manny offers to have a viewing at her place since she’s not allowed to go out after sunset. I guess her dad is afraid that members of the Family from The Omega Man are going to get her. Emma then asks Sean if he wants to join them and Toby’s heart drops. Sean notices the look on his face and tells her no. Toby visibly gives a sigh of relief. Afterwards JT is giving Toby shit because he was so obvious.


In Mrs Kwan’s room Paige and Jimmy are rehearsing the play and Paige seems to be getting way too into it. Especially when they do the kiss. The Shakespearean type music that’s playing in the background is hilarious by the way. But Ashley can’t stands no more and she says her line where she’s not supposed to. Mrs Kwan all annoyed points that out to her and then tells Jimmy and Paige that they have great chemistry together. This infuriates Ashley even more.

Paige Jimmy kiss

After class Terri is telling Ashley not to worry about it because it’s only a play. Ashley then starts to say that ever since they were little Paige just had to be a fucking bitch and that everything that she had, Paige had to have too. That is really annoying when people are like that. Paige comes along and tells her what a great nurse she’s playing. Ashley not fucking around tells Paige that she know what she’s doing. Paige acts all innocent but at the same time implies that if Ashley keeps acting like a prude someone that he has chemistry with will come along. Jimmy tries to have a word with her, but she over does it and just starts macking on him. She mentions that they’ll be all alone that night and reminds him what that dirty old woman Dr Sally said. She adds, “I’m ready.” Jimmy probably got a hard on the size of the Statue of Liberty when he heard that.

Drake Ashley kissing

In some back alley, Jimmy is hanging out with Spinner and the nameless extra. He mentions how Ashley wants to give him her ultimate gift. Spinner being borderline retarded says, “A Ferrari.” Drake then says, “You’re such an idiot. No, what Juliet gave Romeo.” Surprisingly he get’s it that she wants to give him her body. Spinner then suggests that Jimmy get condoms to be prepared.

Spinner Jimmy Nameless extra

At Ashley’s house, she and Terri are shopping for condoms online. How is Ashley able to buy this without her mom finding out? Unless she has her own credit card. Which would be beyond ridiculous if she does. Terri asks her if all this has to do because of Paige. Even the mere mention of her name elicit’s rage from Ashley. She denies that’s the reason, but it pretty much confirms that it is because of her. Terri tells her she doesn’t want her to regret having sex later on because it is a big deal. That’s when Ashley without any tact says, “I can’t believe I’m listening to relationship advice from someone who’s never had a date.” Terri instantly get’s pissed off and says that she’s leaving. Funny how Ashley doesn’t even try to apologize for her shitty remark. She just goes ahead and orders the condoms because she’s that self absorbed.

Terri pissed

Back at Degrassi Emma is having trouble searching for her stupid endangered turtles. Toby being a big nerd gives it a try and immediately get’s search results. But it seems that Toby’s project was to create his own search engine. The subject of Mama Onu is the first result and it says, “All Emma could ever need to know about the green turtle.” He then fantasizes about touching her hand and she has love in her googly eyes for him. Back to reality she shoves his hand off of the mouse and starts yelling at him.

toby tracks emma

Seems like Terri and Ashley aren’t talking anymore, they just ignore each other and Ashley goes to talk to Jimmy. Drake starts to ask if they’re still on for that night, but Paige for the umpteenth time in the series so far interrupts them and tells Ashley that they won’t need her for their rehearsals the next day. She just has to be a major bitch about not needing her around because she only has two lines in the scene. Why Ashley doesn’t beat the shit out of her is beyond me, because clearly that’s what she needs. But Ashley tells Drake that they are so on for that night.

Paige jimmy ashley

Emma is telling her crew if they’re ready to go to Manny’s to watch the boring DVD but that’s when Liberty comes along and cock blocks Toby. As if he had a chance in hell, but she mentions how Emma promised she would help proof read the Degrassi newspaper. Toby of course is beyond disappointed.

At Ashley’s house she comes in and her mom is still there. Someone knocks at the door and it’s a letter courier. He gives her the package and I didn’t know letter courier’s delivered freight. Anyways, her mom asks her what’s in the box and Ashley says, “Nothing, mind yo business.”

Ah, we come upon yet another scene that is being recycled from Degrassi Junior High. Spinner and Jimmy go to a convenience store and buy some condom’s. But Jimmy of course is hella embarrassed. The clerk of course is a big fucking asshole and he asks Jimmy if he has the right size. He’s all, “We have small, medium, large and extra large.” Jimmy just says, “What’s the fucking total guy?” But the guy won’t let up, he starts going on about colors and textures. Jimmy should have just told him that at least he’s getting laid while he’ll be busy pumping the neighbor’s dog. That would shut that dork’s mouth.

Clerk Jimmy Spinner

Jimmy knocks on Ashley’s door and clearly the both of them are nervous. They go into her bedroom and just awkwardly sit on her bed.

In the Media Immersion room Liberty is asking Emma if she really thinks that her boring ass article is interesting. Emma says yes and Liberty asks her if she wants to go out for smoothies on the way home. But fuck that. Emma thinking quickly on her feet spots Sean and get’s out of it by telling her that she promised she would help him out after school. She starts talking to him and he talks about his dog project. Mentioning that he misses his dumb dog Ruff that he was forced to leave behind, Emma falls for him just a little more because of that.

Sean Emma

At Ashley’s she and Jimmy have now gotten into some classic heavy petting. But she puts the breaks on it. She walks out and tells him that she’s going to freshen up. She instantly berates herself saying, “Stop sweating, grow up you stupid bitch!!” Drake not respecting her privacy starts going through her stuff and finds the condoms that she bought. He asks her what’s wrong and she breaks down. Not crying mind you, but she tells him that she can’t bone him because she’s not ready for it, even though Paige probably is. He quickly figures out that she thinks that he wants her just because of the Shakespeare bullshit. He tells her that he’s not ready to have sex either and all is well in their little world.


At Manny’s front stoop, Toby is bummed that Emma never came by. Manny figures that it’s because of Liberty and they all know how fucking annoying she is. JT mentions that the DVD was boring as hell and it almost put him on the endangered species list. Toby blurts out that he rented it for her and just takes off all pissed off.

Toby Manny JT

We see Toby going up the stairs at his house and opens the door to Ashley’s room saying that he’s home. That’s when he finds them blowing up the condom’s into balloons like a couple of idiots. Toby all surly tells them to pick that shit up before their parents get home and that he’s going to bed. He adds, “And Jimmy, girls are not worth it, believe me.” After he leaves Ashley gives him his lame necklace and he’s delighted by it.

Ashley toby drake

The next day at Degrassi Emma mentions to Toby and Manny that she was with Sean but Toby won’t let her finish. He goes on to say that she promised she was going to come and what kind of friend is she. Emma wonders what the fuck all that was about and Manny tells her that he likes her. Emma is mortified at the thought.

emma manny

At Drake’s locker Spinner asks him how it all went down, but Jimmy says that they were that close to boning but that Toby came home and ruined everything, which if you think about it isn’t really lying. Spinner offers to kick his ass, but Jimmy says nah. Ashley then tries to apologize to Terri saying what a major bitch she was for saying what she said. All Terri says is fine. Ashley then goes on to explain to her how they didn’t even have sex since they weren’t ready for it. Terri then asks if Jimmy wasn’t upset and Ashley says, “No Jimmy was cool about it.” Then adds with a look of concern on her face, “Entirely cool about it actually.” I swear you can’t win with some people. But that’s how this episode abruptly ends.

Terri Ashley end credits

Again, I have to say, even though this was a reused plot from Degrassi Junior High, I enjoyed this episode. Toby once again was kept at a minimum. It’s like the Degrassi writers knew he was a lame annoying character. I think this episode was the beginning of the Toby, Sean, Emma love triangle. But I swear Paige shows what a horrible person she is in each episode and I’m totally advocating her beat down.
