"Gangsta Gangsta"Season 3 Episode 6
Canadian airdate: October 22nd, 2003
The episode begins with Sean bored home alone because Emma is busy babysitting and JT and Toby are too lame for Sean to want to hang with them outside of school. Sean must not know Spinner's phone number either. That's too bad that we never see Spinner and Sean hang out, that would make one kickass episode. They would spend the whole show picking up college-aged girls in bars, getting the girls to buy them beer, and then have mad, mad sex.
Well, low and behold, Sean's older brother, Tracker, comes home with a hot ass bitch he plans to have sex with. A normal Tracker night. Unfortunately, Sean is home, so Tracker gives him some money and tells him to skedaddle. Now we know how Sean learned to be so cool.
God damn, Toby is so lame.
Ok, here we fucking go now. I introduce to you, Jay, Alex and Black Kid: The Candy Bandits! Get ready to be pumped because Degrassi will never be the same again. Not with Alex and Jay making out while the black guy watches. Jay tries to pick on Toby, but Sean has to protect the nerd, being friends with him and all. Not that Sean likes JT or Toby, it's just that no other main characters were cast to be his friends, what can he do? Maybe Toby does his homework so Sean is just protecting an investment.
Ok, now we have one of the coolest scenes in television history. Sean has just opened his locker Fonzie style, when he looks down the hall to see Jay and the gang breaking into a vending machine.
This scene is so awesome because Jay's gang doesn't steal any money from the machine, they completely ignore that and just make off with all the candy. There weren't interested in cash, just delicious chocolate. When we here at Boycott the Caf saw this, we were like, "Man they must really like candy."
"They're the Candy Bandits." And that's how the term was born.
The Candy Bandits grab all the candy and take off. But not before Jay bribes Sean by giving him a Hershey bar. This is enough to buy Sean's silence when Raditch grills him about the break in. Sean is defiantly Candy Bandit material.
This scene is just too awesome.
Moving on. Talk about surreal, here we have Liberty, Kendra, and Wheelchair Girl together, having lunch with Toby no less. All they need is Muslim Girl here and this will be the ultimate collection of weird and rarely used Degrassi characters. Together, they make up the Brooks and Knights Society, some gay ass club of minor characters.
Toby is sad that JT isn't eating lunch with these losers, instead he is hanging out with Paige, Spinner, and the other cool kids. JT really got in with the cool crowd after he went at Paige's rapist last year.
Over at shop class, the teacher (some crazy guy in a wheelchair) looks down some young girls shirts. He's in a wheelchair, cut him some slack. Latter he makes some crazy statement to the kids about not being their mother and they weren't born in barn. Degrassi needs a new shop teacher.
Sean works on an engine, while Jay stares him down from across the room. It's a pretty menacing stare, and Jay doesn't let up the entire scene, even after Sean comes up to them and shows Black Kid how to properly twist some engine thing. Black Kid doesn't say anything, because Black Kid doesn't say anything all episode, he just looks like he wants to eat Sean. He must smell the Hershey bar on Sean's breath and is hungry.
Outside the school, Sean fights Jay because Raditch thinks Sean stole the candy. Fighting Jay helps Sean prove his worth to the Bandits, because he went toe to toe with the lead Bandit and came out alive. Jay and Sean bond.
The next day, JT is lounging poolside. For some reason Liberty comes by, gives him a drink and then jumps into a pool. Also, there are bubbles floating around. What is going on here?
Oh...my...fuck...ing...God. That was a dream. Not just any dream, a wet dream. JT had a wet dream about Liberty. Eew. God, how can JT live with himself after that? It's so disgusting. He had a dream about Liberty.
Since he was spending the night at Toby's, the Tobster knows about JT's Liberty inspired ejaculation. Always the opportunist, Toby blackmails JT into letting him eat with the cool kids, or Toby will spills the beans on JT's bed mess.
Toby may be lame, but come on, he has a pie in his bedroom, just sitting there. A pie. That's awesome. I want to meet the person who decorates all the sets for the show and make him or her my idol.
Funny story, I started college when this episode first aired and didn't see it for several weeks. When I was back home, all my friends who saw this episode were telling me the shocking news about JT's wet dream. This was the talk of the town for some time. They were like, "You're not going to believe this. JT HAD A WET DREAM ABOUT LIBERTY! YOU HAVE TO SEE THIS" I have some fucked up friends.
Toby gets his wish and joins JT and the cool kids at lunch. But Toby is too geeky to say anything cool, so he opens his mouth on JT's wet dream. Paige is delighted by this gossip. Toby explains that every man has "nocturnal emissions" even Principal Raditch. JT is not happy.
Oh yeah, Raditch is having a nocturnal emission right now biting into that delicious donut. Ooooh yeeaaahhh.
Also at lunch, Emma is organizing a bunch of extras to help clean the ravine of litter. Jay is against the cleaning of the ravine, because he has sex there so he wants the ravine to stay the way it is. Emma better listen to Jay, he drinks toxic waste. That's either toxic waste or the last bottle of Surge in existence. Either way, it's a badass thing to drink.
Sean goes with Emma to clean the ravine, but instead of picking up litter, he gets Emma to make out with him. Emma's so easy, she'll give head at the drop of hat. But before Sean can get that lucky, Kendra spots them, and is she ever surprised.
Emma is embarrassed and she and Sean get into a heated argument that ends with Sean slamming her locker. That's a warning. First time, it's Emma's locker, next time, her face.
Fighting with Emma sends Sean back into the loving arms of the Candy Bandits. To get money for his car, Jay brings Sean along with the Bandits as they steal some equipment from the Media Immersion room. Sean suggests they swipe Mr. Simpson's magic green laptop computer. That will fetch the Bandits about a million billion dollars.
Later, Mr. Simpson laments that he must have misplaced his laptop. But Emma suspects Sean stole it. Sean isn't just a gansta, he's double: a gansta, gansta.
The first great episode of the season. Things will not be the same with Jay and his Candy Bandits crew on the scene. Degrassi is entering a whole new level of awesomeness, and at the center of this massive erection will be Sean Cameron, the breakout star of season 3.
Intensity Level: 84% Intense
Gangsters, robbery, wet dreams, and candy. Pretty damn intense.
