Degrassi Junior High “The Experiment” (part 3 of 4)
Cut to a seedy, lowlife, back stairwell somewhere inside Degrassi. Melanie and Kathleen have come to meet up with Joey and get their drugs. Wheels is there, too, looking horrified when Joey pulls out the drugs. And Joey keeps them in a tiny plastic box, the same kind usually reserved for pushpins, and the box is actually glued to the bottom of his skateboard.
Joey takes out a red capsule and declares, “New Zealand Zappers!” He’s asking five bucks per pill, and ever the salesman, he says, “No pay, no play! No tip, no trip! No pills, no thrills!” No glove, no love! (Sorry, wrong episode.) The girls pay up, and he immediately threatens them: If they ever say where they got the pills, they’ll be “pushing up dandelions.” Oh, yes. I can seriously imagine Joey doing a drive-by on his skateboard.
