Degrassi Junior High “Kiss Me, Steph” (part 3 of 3)
Anyway, we cut to a banner reading “ELECTION RALLY” above the front steps of the school, and Stephanie is standing there, delivering Voula’s dorky speech about family planning and current events. Appropriately, she’s wearing yet another shirt that shows off her midriff, along with a hot pink miniskirt that just barely covers her hooha. And after every single stupid line of the speech, all of the gathered boys cheer wildly.
As she speaks, Steph is looking directly at Voula in the crowd, and Voula is mouthing the speech right along with Stephanie, almost like she’s Ed Wood mouthing every word of his Bride of the Monster screenplay along with his actors.
Steph declares, “A vote for Stephanie Kaye is a vote for an active student council!” I assume she means sexually active. And all of the boys cheer again, although I think she would have gotten exactly the same response if she had performed a dramatic interpretation of the lyrics to “I’m Henry the Eighth, I Am”.
The speech ends, and Voula is beaming. Apparently, she doesn’t realize the response to the speech is somewhat connected to how close Steph came to showing off her cooter.
