You Gotta Have Heart is the 20th episode of Season 5 on FOX teen soap Beverly Hills, 90210.


Steve tries to secure the R&B group "Jade" for a Valentines Day telethon at the Peach Pit After Dark. Meanwhile, Brandon coaxes Kelly away from Professor Finley and his work at his newly opened commune, but only for the moment. After moving out of the Walshes and into a hotel suite, using some of Dylan's money, Valerie comes onto Ray who's having problems with Donna and pressures him into an affair. Ray's mother, LuAnn, figures out that Ray cheated on Donna when he doesn't come home after that night, and covers for him when Donna comes calling asking of Ray's whereabouts. Also, Andrea with Jesse meets Peter and his wife, but that doesn't disrupt their feelings for each other.
