Degrassi The Next Generation episode one hundred thirty seven

Emma is about to get it on with black class president guy. He is there illegally because students are not allowed in the house while Simpson is investigated for being a sex offender. Spike and Snake come home early from a dinner date, so black class president ducks out. I bet he escaped through the basement window in Emma's bedroom. That's how everyone sneaks in and out of the house. Spike and Snake really need to fix that or someone is going to break in and rob them someday. I can see Manny taking Jay to Emma's house for a visit. He'll discover the basement escape plan when Manny takes him down there to have sex on Emma's bed like she has done so many, many times before. Jay won't take much because Emma's family is too poor to have a DVD player or nice TV. But they'll come home from work and school to find that all of Spike's jewelry as well as two bags of Oreos are missing. Snake will be in trouble since Jay also stole the key to his chastity belt.

Snake and Spike come home and argue because the waiter was giving them attitude, thinking he was so much better than Snake. Everyone has to assume they are better than Mr. Simpson, though. Even if you take away being accused of sexual offences, this guy has a low paying teaching job and lives in a crappy house where he is constantly yelled at by his domineering wife. Plus, he's bald.

The phone rings and Snake answers it because Emma said it was his ring. I didn't know you could do individual ringtones on a landline phone. Even if you can, that feature is probably going to cost some money, and this family doesn't have a lot of money to throw around on fancy smancy phone features. They aren't poor, but I doubt they can afford whatever high flalootany phone system they have here. I bet that is why Emma liked Sean in the beginning, she didn't have a lot of money living with her single mom, but at least she could feel superior to Sean. She at least has running water, while Sean lived in a tin roof shack without electricity.

Snake gets off the phone with a big grin and says, "What has two thumbs and officially not a pedophile. This guy!" Snake has finally been exonerated in his sex offender investigation. He could have been cleared alot sooner. All he had to do was show the school board that his testicles had been removed.

Simpson is happy as a clam that will not go to prison. He and Emma go to Degrassi for his first day back to work. But all is not well. When they pass by Lucas and Mullet Kid, the two boys make fun of him and call him a perv. Rather than give them detention, Simpson sulks and goes back home. Man, you have to be a pretty defeated as a teacher to run home crying in that situation instead of giving the two of them detention. Living with Spike for the past five years has zapped all of Simpson's self-respect.

Emma needs to do something to get her dad to want to work again. She enters the bathroom and sees Darcy there. Darcy is worried she is going to get beat down, but Emma recruits her to help in exchange for sparing her life. The two have students sign a poster in support of Simpson retuning to work. Mia and Lucas do not want to sign the poster because they have to think about the safety of their love child. Mia and Lucas are stupid. I think they don't want to sign the poster because neither of them can read. They are far too embarrassed about it to admit it.

Hey, the B plot has Toby! I wasn't aware the show even still had Toby anymore. Excuse me for a moment while I scream like a teenage girl at a Justin Timberlake concert.


Holly J needs a tutor for math. She asks Toby for help because her sister said he is the nerdiest. Toby agrees to help her out; he'll scratch her back and she scratches his. Holly J knows what he means and begins to undue her bra. But what Toby really wanted was dance lessons. If he doesn't become good at Dance Dance Revolution, he is going to fail gym. Yeah, I don't know how that is supposed to work either. Since Holly J is a cheerleader and all that cheerleaders on TV/movies do is dance sexy instead of coming up with cheers for basketball games, she is the perfect Toby dance coach.

Unfortunately, Toby has Jew rhythm and he falls down, taking Holly J to the floor with him. Then some of Holly's posse come by and they make fun of Toby.

I'm just glad to know that they can practice Dance Dance Revolution in a classroom, presumably after school. Degrassi feels no need to lock he doors when school gets out and can start spending on large screen TVs again. With Jay's reign of terror over, Degrassi students can once again watch educational DVDs.

Some students have put together a Mr. Simpson is a perv website. I find this ironic, since they learned to put together such a top notch website using the tools Mr. Simpson taught them. Principal Hotass stops by and tells Simpson that some girl's parents have pulled her from his class, out of fear that Simpson will perv on her. This means she is not going to graduate, since we learned that you need to take Media Immersion every year in order to pass high school

In a twist, Holly J is falling for Toby. She tells Toby that they are going to be dating from henceforth. But Toby will have none of that because Holly is a scrub, and Toby don't want no scrub, a scrub is a girl that can't get no love from Toby.

Holly is shocked and chagrinned that a boy would not be interested in her. It makes sense, though, since she is a nasty bitch. And no boy has ever expressed interest in her so far. She's supposed to be the popular girl, but she only has one friend. Maybe she just has a lot of Myspace friends so they count being popular on that site. Everyone wants to add her as a friend because of her many photos she took in front of a bathroom mirror where she shows off her ass.

Simpson has stayed home from work again. He is watching TV while drunk and covered in sweat and food stains. Man, Simpson really let himself go. It's only been around six hours too. Simpson falls apart fast.

Degrassi The Next Generation episode one hundred thirty seven

Spike wants to take the kids and go to her mother's for awhile, while Snake wallows in filth. However, Emma wants to stand by her dad, so she stays with him while Spike takes the baby and leaves. Spike doesn't trust Snake around the baby. She doesn't feel safe there herself, either. Being that she and the baby are the two shortest people int he house, they are most obvious target for Snake's pervy ways. Note that Spike does not believe that Snake is not guilty of being a pedophile, even though he had\s been exonerated and Spike has know him since junior high. Spike is a fucking bitch.

Rating: C
Average. The Snake plot was lame, like all Snake plots are that don't involve him hot macking on the school principal (be it Hotass or Raditch). But, hey, Toby was back. That's and A right there it if was just itself. They should have made the Toby thing the A plot and not have had any other plot.

Does It Go There? Totally to the Toby
T-O-B-Y that spells TOBY!!

Who Should Get Kicked In The Face This Week? Lucas and Mia
Man, this is a really angry feature. I don't know if continuing this is good for my health. But I nominate Lucas and Mia today. They were only on for a minute, but their annoyingness, arrogance and stupidity will echo through the ages.
