Quotes

Brenda — How can you compare your problems with Jake who you barely even know to my problems with Dylan?! I mean you're not even up there with Donna and David!
Donna — What's that supposed to mean?
Kelly — That means that Brenda's being a self-centered little b****
—Fun times
Steve – So, how are things going with that guy, Joke?
Kelly – Jake
Steve – (chuckles) Jake, right
Kelly — Obviously nothing's going on or he'd be here right now
My fault alright. I just got too close to all of you — I won't make that mistake again
—Dylan to Brenda

Trivia

  • Dylan feels alienated from the Walshes
  • Steve tells Kelly he's finally ready to let go of them
  • Kelly tells David she thinks he's cool and David flirts with her

PRODUCTION NOTES

  • This is the last episode for series creator Darren Star who left the show after Season 2. In a way it serves as his personal "series finale"
  • Despite Mel Silver being Jewish on the series, Gillespie (who portrays Jackie Taylor) relays how the producers would not specify a religious belief and insisted on a non-denominal service for the wedding of Jackie and Mel[1].
