  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (4)

    • Steve: I was actually thinking of breaking down and asking Kelly to the dance. I think she deserves another chance. Brandon: You're giving her another chance. Isn't she the one who broke up with you? Steve: Yeah. But I forgive her.

    • Brandon: I don't waltz, I don't rumba, I don't fox trot, I don't boogie, I don't dance. I don't even like to be in the same room with people who are dancing.

    • Dylan: If that's her idea of a platonic relationship, I'd love to see what she does when she gets physical.

    • Chuckie: I was telling Brandon about my life story. You were a part of it. Steve: Unfortunately.
