"Shout" Part 2
Part 2 opens with Paige in the school bathroom, when she sees Dean! That guys really goes anywhere to get chicks.
But Paige is freighted. Here's Dean in her sanctuary. He's pierced the inner walls of Paige's office and is going to rape here again!
It was just a dream. A pretty hot dream.
At school, Terri tells Paige about a battle of the bands contest, presumably only for girls and brought to us by Pantene. Hey, do you think Pantene is maybe paying Degrassi: The Next Generation some money?
Paige and Terri are resurrecting PMS, there band from "Cabaret." Since Ashley is no longer anyone's friend, Paige recruits Hazel to fill in as the lead singer. Unfortunately, Hazel can't sing at all. Good thing she has a nice rack, so no one will notice.
It's poetry day in Ms. Kwan's class. As far as I can tell, everyday is poetry day in Kwan's class now. Now that I think about, I don't recall any scene in Kwan's' class since season 2 where the kids are not writing poetry. I guess Kwan is just tired of teaching...and, oh wait, they were reading a book in the last episode. Well, I guess that smarmy comment is void. That's too bad.
Terri reads her poem which she wants to use as the lyrics for the band's new song. It's a really stupid poem, and Spinner expresses that sentiment by commenting to Jimmy that "[Terri's] poem smells like poo." Spinner speaks the truth yet again.
Oh no, not another shitty Ashley goth poem. It's a nice day, Ashley, we don't need to hear about death and vampires and Type O Negative. Ashley's poem is about not having any friends, so the subject must be Liberty. Despite this, the poem really clicks with Paige.
Meanwhile, Part 2 brings us another of JT's adventure, this time with Liberty. JT, are you sneaking a peak at some Liberty ass? JT will take it where he can find it.
Liberty does a report in Media Immersion on JT. It is quite embossing for JT. Especially since Liberty has a huge crush on him. That sucks for JT, Liberty has been stalking him for four years and he has managed to fend her off at every turn. Then in a cruel twist of fate, puberty forgets to make his penis grow and Liberty is the only girl on he planet who will accept him and his baby wang.
JT was really embarrassed by Liberty's presentation, so out in he hallway in front of the girls and some random kid with a trombone, JT makes fun of how Liberty has no friends. Ha! Fuck you Liberty. Score one for the J-ster!
Later on, PMS try to rehearse their song, but things don't go so smoothly. First, Terri comes in and won't stop talking about a pig roast she was just at. She ate a slab of pork "this big!" Hazel can't fucking sing worth shit, and the song Terri wrote smells like poo. Plus Paige is still in a bad mood over getting raped yesterday.
By the way, I like how the prospect of being a singer in a band has made Hazel completely forgot about learning Paige was raped.
Paige is pissed that their song sucks and Hazel sounds like a wounded yak. Paige really wants this band to work because she wants that free bottle of Pantene or whatever first prize is. So she swallows her pride and goes to Ashley's house. Ashley and Paige haven't been friends since Paige kicked her out of the cool kids circle for doing ecstasy last year. But Paige wants Ashley in the band so it doesn't suck ass. Paige and Ashley make up and become friends once again. This is the beginning of the new improved nice Paige. Being raped has made her less of bitch and kinder to others.
Liberty walks next to Emma and Manny pretending to be their friend and strikes a conversation with them about art class. Emma and Manny are too polite to tell Liberty to go away, so they put up with it. Then out of nowhere, JT starts making fun of Liberty again. I don't know why JT felt like doing that, I guess he just wanted to piss of Liberty and make her cry, which I wholeheartedly support. But then Liberty does something completely random, she takes a red marker and scribbles the anarchy A on JT's locker. What the hell Liberty? What's that supposed to prove? That was completely unnecessary.
More good news happens for the band: Hazel has lost her voice to polyps. Since Paige is queen of the band, she appoints Ashley as the new singer.
Ashley starts playing a song she wrote, which coincidentally, just so happens to be about rape. Paige is pissed off.
Paige is crying. The rape song gave her memories of her own rape, which at this point probably happened in the same week. Ashley goes to console her, and learns of the rape. Hazel of course, already knows Paige's problem, but doesn't give a shit apparently. Ashley holds Paige as she cries. This is so cute. Come on Ashley, hold Paige closer. That's a good girl. Now give her a kiss. Come on, start making out. I wants me a money shot
Getting back to JT, Raditch has accused JT of being the one to deface the locker and is making him clean it up. Is Raditch making JT clean that with a bottle of urine? That seems like a Raditch move.
But in last minute move. Liberty cops to the crime, because she fears JT will be kicked out of school. Ha. JT played that bitch like a fiddle there, tricking Liberty into thinking that his mom would put him in Catholic school if he got in trouble again. JT doesn't even have a mom. Good job JT. Liberty can't win. Liberty loses at life
It's the battle of the girl bands day. PMS take the stage ready to rock out. But then Paige is frozen in fear. Why? Why?
Shit there's Dean in the audience. Scoping out girls to forcibly bed no doubt. Look at that smirk, that's an evil genius smirk there.
What ever will Paige do? She'll use the power of rock and roll, motherfucker. She takes the mic and begins singing the rape song.. The rocking is so hard it drives Dean away. I think Dean assumes the song was about him even though Ashley wrote it. Either way, it worked and Dean has been defeated. Actually, Dean was the one who got free sex out of it. Then he was acquitted of raping Paige later on, so I guess Dean did win in the end.
Ah, what's Courtney Love doing here? What does she know about music?
Anyway, Liberty has been punished by being forced to do janitorial work for the rest of her life. JT rubs it in by littering and then using the toilet after a binge at Taco Bell. Clean up the shit Liberty. Yeah, you have you clean up all that nasty shit you annoying fucking bitch. Breathe it in asshole.
Man, I feel great right now.
Paige also feels great about their performance, and so does Ashley. Check out Ellie in the back there trying to catch up so she can hang out. This is the beginning of Ellie being fiends with Paige and Hazel. Not because they like her, but because they are friends with Ashley and Ellie is always going to be three feet behind Ashley, so they have to let her tag along.
The title of this one is Shout.Rating: F
We here at Boycott the Caf were really disappointed when we first saw "Shout." The-N advertised the hell out of this thing, sowe sat down expecting the single most awesome episode to date. "Oh my God! Did you hear? Paige is going to get raped. We totally have to see this!" I'd say to my friends as we were sitting in our pajamas eating ice cream. We were so excited when it finally aired, but were really let down by how boring it was. All that happens is Paige gets raped ten minutes into it and then spends the rest of the time crying. Toughen up bitch, we want a story. The-N also aired "How Soon is Now" immediately after, so we got a very slow 90 minute TV movie that had too many JT B plots which were just weird and served no purpose but to piss us off, as well as taking away from the sexy main story. This should have been way better than it was.
Intensity Level: 100% Intense
Rape is Intense.

Spinner JT Quotes:
JT on writing his report on Hugh Heffner: "As my quest for a woman goes on, find me a better role model."
You know, after being raped Paige stopped being a bitch and was a lot nicer to people. So if anything, everyone is better off for Paige having been raped. She really needed that.
