While going to a club called floodlights, Brandon Walsh and Steve Sanders meet Trina and her friend, Shelly. They admire Steve's Corvette and hang out with Brandon and Steve. Trina matches up with Steve and butters him up to the point where she convinces him to take her to a secluded parking lot. After kissing him a little bit, she asks to drive the car. She fakes not knowing how to drive a stick shift before signaling Shelly to jump in the car. They then screech off into the night, stealing Steve's Corvette.
The police later catch them and, in order to get out of charges, she flirts with Steve and makes up a story about getting lost to get him to pay her bail money on an outstanding warrant. Brandon, however, didn't buy her story. Trina then gives Steve a certificate for a free manicure at her nail salon, which Steve finds a letdown.
