Degrassi Junior High “The Big Dance” (part 2 of 4)

More atmosphere in the hallways. Voula is talking to Sweet Ms. Avery. The girl to be known as “Spike” wanders past. You’ll know her by her crazy punker hair. She’s wearing a t shirt for (what else?) the Smiths. Michelle wanders past, still a total cutie, despite seeming to be wearing pajamas. She’s the one I accidentally referred to as “Erica” in the previous recap. I regret the error, but in all fairness, it’s pretty tough to keep track of characters who get no lines until the third season.

Enter Joey Jeremiah. It seems that prior to this episode, he exchanged his fedora for a porkpie hat, which looks to be made out of straw. Due to the erasure of Hank from the Degrassi timeline (mostly likely caused by Superboy punching a wall), Joey’s new best friend is Wheels. Wheels, if you’ll recall, is mostly known for being the first boy to ask Stephanie for a kiss in exchange for voting for her. And let me tell you, he’s got a long, strange trip ahead of him, to be sure. An odd confluence of circumstance will lead to him hitchhiking and being picked up by a gay pedophile in a station wagon, in a clip that so terrified Viacom they ordered it pulled from YouTube.

Joey asks if Wheels is going to the Big Dance, but he’s not sure. But Joey says not only is he going, but he has a date. And by “a date”, he’s referring to someone who he hasn’t even asked yet. “Stephanie, of course! She lusts for my body!” Yep, all 100% of that muscle. It’s really hard to take him seriously when he steals his headwear from Tom Sawyer. Just then, Stephanie wanders past, and flashes a smile over in the direction of the two boys.

But as it turns out, Stephanie is hot for… Wheels. Wheels? Really? I guess you never forget your first john, do you? As they enter a classroom, Steph tells the incredulous Twins that he is “so sexy!” I don’t really want to speculate on the sexiness of 14 year old boys, so I’m just going to agree with Stephanie and keep going.
