  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (1)

    • Joey & Wheels: GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS! Snake: SEXational! Joey: Oh, oh Snake, Snake; your ID, man. Snake: Great, we're both called Joey Jeremiah. Very convincing. Joey: Just flash it quick. Look, if you're scared.... Snake: I'm NOT scared. I just don't want to get in trouble. Joey: You're not going to get in trouble. Snake: We ALWAYS get in trouble.

    Trivia (5)

    • Trivia: The liquor that Diana brings to the party is Ouzo. It's a traditional Greek liquor, like Sambuca. It's made from grapes and berries, and both tastes and smells a lot like black licorice. It's 80 proof, and very strong.

    • Product Placement: There are two bottles of Coke sitting on the table, facing the camera, in the scene at the strip club.

    • Trivia: Diana's brother George is wearing a (fake) Members Only jacket. The real versions were hot items and worn by all the "in crowd" in the 1980s.

    • Trivia: Diana's mom is not very observant, as Diana sneaks out within feet of her.

    • Trivia: Lots of kids were outside smoking, but Miss Avery only busts Yick, Luke, and Diana.

    Allusions (3)

    • Self Reference: The Zits manage to get their video on tv. It is to air on the local community cable channel on Monday at 8:30 p.m., and Joey makes a comment about how there's nothing else to watch at that time. Monday at 8:30 p.m. was when Degrassi High aired.

    • Book Reference: The book that Diana becomes obsessed with is The Outsiders (1967), by S.E. Hinton. Diana thinks that it would be great to live life like that; however the book deals with social divisions and bullying; and the main characters end up being on the run from the law.

    • Movie Reference: Diana compares Yick to Ponyboy and Sodapop Curtis. These are two characters in the movie The Outsiders (1983). Ponyboy Curtis was played by C. Thomas Howell; Sodapop Curtis was played by Rob Lowe.
