Degrassi Junior High “Nothing to Fear” (part 3 of 3)
Cut to Susie, Yick, and Arthur heading down into the Degrassi basement to find the snake. Arthur explains that this is the “warmest” part of the school—the basement? Really?—so this is where they’re sure to find Amadeus. Even Yick calls BS on this, saying that snakes are cold-blooded and could care less about where it’s “warm”.
“Yick, please,” Arthur says. “I did research!” Well, that settles it, then. I don’t know why, but to me that’s the funniest line of the episode. The next time someone gives me shit about anything, I’m going to snap, “Please! I did research!”
And they have a whole cardboard box snake-trap prepared, with grass designs drawn all over it. And they’re going to lure the snake into this box with… slices of bologna? Yes, that appears to be the plan. So, snakes like luncheon meat? Really? Well, they did research, after all, so who am I to question it? The three kids head on into the boiler room, the brave souls that they are. Let me tell you, many a wussier kid has gotten locked inside one of these.
