Degrassi Junior High “Rumor Has It” (part 5 of 5)
Cut to Arthur and Yick resuming their pointless pursuit of Rick. They see him walk up a flight of stairs, and they start to follow him. But by the time they get to the stairs, Rick has already spun around on his heels to confront them. He grabs them both by their collars and demands to know why they’ve been following him.
Arthur and Yick, both a few seconds away from pissing their pants, say this is about the money stolen out of Yick’s locker. Yick says they know Rick stole it, because Rick bought “a new T-shirt! And a ton of licorice!” Not sure where the T-shirt thing suddenly came from, but okay.
Arthur adds, “And there’s all those rumors!” thankfully driving home the point of the episode. Rick wants to know what “rumors” they’re talking about, but the conversation is interrupted by a familiar clearing of the throat. Sure enough, it’s Rompin’ Rockin’ Raditch, back in his lavender Miami Vice blazer. Rick immediately backs off, not wanting to bear the brunt of some righteous Raditch rage.
Hilariously, without saying another word, Raditch descends the steps, straightens the collar of Rick’s jean jacket, and continues on. I know all this and more… Once he’s gone, Rick tells Arthur and Yick to stop following him around, and then the two of them run off to change their underwear.
