"I Want Candy"Season 3 Episode 20
Canadian airdate: March 22nd, 2004
Paige and Spinner have decided to skip school for one day because they are 2 kewl 4 school. Paige does this by forging her mother's signature on a note excusing her from classes. How bad!
Spinner goes the classic route and fakes sick. He does this by sticking his thermometer in a cup of boiling water. Then, to destroy the evidence, drinks the boiling water! Man, usually drinking that would kill a person, I think...or at least be very, very painful. But Spinner is a man of steel with a titanium cock and he can down that like it was nothing.
Kendra knows Spinner is faking and tries to tell their mom, but their mom believes Spinner. We know who the favorite child in that family is.
Ashley is also not at school. Not because she is skipping with Spinner and Paige, but because she is incredibly moody, and as far as Ashley is concerned that gives you reason enough to stay home from school for the whole week. Instead, Ashley spends the time writing more of her shitty Goth music on the keyboard, the preferred Goth instrument, because they can be purchased for fifty bucks at Wal-mart, the preferred Goth store.
Paige and Spinner drive to Ashley's house and force her out of bed and to come along with them on their Ferris Bueller day.
Ashley still wants to kill the fun and agrees to hang out if they go visit Terri at the hospital. What a buzzkill. Terri has gotten out of her coma, but still has a huge scar on her head. Eww. Ashley suddenly remembers she never liked Terri and leaves the room.
It's worth mentioning that this is Terri's last appearance on Degrassi, so good riddance to fat rubbish.
Back at school, Emma has discovered that Mr. Simpson has been writing a will. In case you forgot, Mr. Simpson has cancer, so this means he might die. And in case you forgot, Mr. Simpson is Emma's step dad, so Emma has some reason to be concerned. Not that much, since he's not her real dad, but he does double the income of her household so he's kind of important to her.
The gang then goes to a fancy restaurant, the same one Marco and Dylan were taken to last episode. They are served by Gay Waiter, in his second cameo so far.
It's here that Ashley makes a startling revelation that she plans on leaving Degrassi at the end of the year. Big loss. Whatever. Ashley still is pissed Craig had sex with Manny. That's partly your fault, Ashley. Craig is a rock star, and those people need sex. If you're too frigid, he's going to wander. Besides, that was half a season ago, get over it already. No one else on the show even seems to remember events that happened more than one episode ago.
The kids had to split, when of all things, they see Raditch at the restaurant with a date. Jesus, that's odd. How does Raditch get girls? Is that really a dude?
The gang left so fast they forgot to pay for their meal. Instead, they spend the money on a game of miniature golf. Money well spent.
Then they go to a movie and an art museum where Spinner admires the hairy vagina on that painting.
Back at school, Emma is so concerned about Mr. Simpson's will that she gets into a fight with Alex, because that is exactly what you do in that situation. Emma really held her own in this fight. I'm surprised. Alex is an all around tough girl, but she was matched by Emma's primal Earth First rage.
The last stop for the school skippers is an Elvis impersonation contest. Ashley wants to prove she still is a fun person. So she surprises Paige and Spinner by entering the contest. She is quite the hit there. Way more than Mini-Elvis, what a loser he was.
Meanwhile, at the doctor's, Snake learns his cancer is in remission and he won't be dying after all.
Ashley is dropped back home where her mom is shocked to see her smiling and also holding and Elvis trophy.
Meanwhile, Paige and Spinner reflect on how awesome here day was and top it off by having sex.
I can't believe this episode didn't have any Candy Bandits, even though it was called I Want Candy.
Man, this had a lot of sweet Spinner moments. Plus Emma got into a fight and actually did something cool for once.
