Degrassi Junior High “It's Late” (part 2 of 4)
Cut to the bell ringing and all the kids filing out of class. I guess the topic of Raditch’s class today was future careers or something, because the Twins ask Spike what she wants to be when she grows up. Since the answer is quickly becoming “hopeless, destitute, single mom”, Spike just snaps that she doesn’t want to talk about it.
And then Shane comes up to Spike and says Loosey’s having another party “like the one last month”. Last month? Wait a minute. So that means the cold open actually took place a month in the past? Wow. Back then, Stephanie and Voula were still fighting, Loosey hadn’t been busted for shoplifting yet, no one knew that Yick’s family were boat people, and L.D.’s dad was still smoking. Those were much simpler times.
Spike doesn’t seem too excited about the idea of another Loosey party. She yells, “I don’t want to go!” and runs away as quickly as possible. So, you know, two guesses as to why a) Spike is acting surly and snapping at everybody, and b) the script inserted a month between the party and what we’re seeing now. If you can’t figure it out, there’s a special bonus clue hidden somewhere in the episode’s title.
And then Joey and Wheels walk up to Shane, asking what really happened at that party. So, after a month, they’re still trying to get the details? Give it up, already. Shane just smirks and says, “Wouldn’t you like to know?” Which, generally speaking, is what a guy says when he wants to pretend he had sex. So I guess Shane can’t even figure out how to properly brag. Joey and Wheels think they were just “kissing” and laugh the whole thing off.
