Quotes Edit

I'll be going to summer school, before I take a bad grade, in ANY class
—Clare to David
SteveI never cheated on you, Kelly
KellyNo, you didn't. But you did cheat on Celeste and that's probably why she's marrying a frog man
―Drunken blame-thrower
ClareDavid, answer the question
DavidYeah. Yeah, I still love Donna
―Watermelon serum
Alright. If you must know... Yeah. I still have feelings for Brandon, okay
If Kelly would take me back, I'd go in a second
—Steve to Brandon

Trivia Edit

  • Steve learns that Celeste is getting married
  • Clare hypothesises that when you start a new relationship straight after ending a previous one, there's overlap in feelings.
  • David and Donna hook up
  • Clare kisses Steve to get back at David
  • Kelly goes on a drunken rant about how men cheat when Jackie tells her she asked Mel to come back. She mentions Brandon with Emily, David with Ariel and Steve cheating on Celeste, although she fails to remark on her own cheating with Dylan on her best friend, casting blame only on men.
    • Also, this is the moment where Brandon alludes to wanting to marry her... for some reason
  • Dylan and Valerie hook up
  • Jesse tells Andrea that he has been having an affair
  • In the spirit of the night before, Steve hits on Donna
