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

Back at the dance, our man Astrodog approaches Voula, asking if she wants to dance. No, Voula! Don’t do it! He is boy with only one thing on mind!

Despite the tiny version of Poppa sitting on her shoulder, they get up and dance with each other. And wow, it’s so incredibly awkward. I don’t know if the actual name of this dance really is the “Okay, Here We Are, Now What Do We Do? Dance”, but maybe it should be. They can hardly even look each other in the eye as they start clumsily stepping from side to side. Oh, man. It’s really horrible to watch.

I think, technically speaking, to dance with someone, you have to be in the same room with them. Judges?

Cut to: Joey dancing with Caitlin. Oh, if they only knew they were planting the seeds of a love to last a generation. But for now, Joey and Caitlin are literally keeping each other at arm’s length. Meanwhile, Wheels sits, seething, still waiting for his date to show up.

Cut to Loosey, the Twins, and Steph all making their way across a park towards the school, drunkenly singing the official Degrassi school song. Ah, drunkenly singing the school song. That sure brings back memories. Wait, no it doesn’t.

And this is even more proof that whoever wrote this episode actually saw the previous episode. I had originally assumed the pilot was the first, last, and only use of the school song, but here it is, making another appearance. But surely, this must be the last use of the school song, right? Right?
