Adam was a kid who, with his friend Wayne, was set up on a double date with Kelly Taylor and Brenda Walsh. They were presented as Princeton guys, but it turned out they went to the Princeton school for boys.
Adam and Wayne spent their entire date ignoring the girls while playing the X-Men arcade game. They later went to The Peach Pit, where they met Brandon Walsh, Dylan McKay, Steve Sanders, Andrea Zuckerman, and Joe Wardlow. Adam told Dylan he thought Kelly was a goddess as the gang was amused by them.
