    • Manny: (voiceover) Yeah, Peter showed me topless on the Internet. But if we're the only ones left on Earth, what does it matter?

    • Manny: (voiceover) With all the drama that happens at Degrassi, you think we'd be prepared for anything. But when the dead started coming back to life, let's just say Biology class left us ill-prepared.

    • Manny: (after seeing zombie Emma) Even as the walking dead she looks pretty.

    • Derek: I'm gonna blow up the school, blow it up! And those walking dead atrocities with it! Manny: What do you mean!? Derek: I mean, I'm gonna blow up the zombies...with the fetal pig formaldehyde? Manny: No...what does atrocities mean?

    • Derek: Wonderful specimen, isn't it? He's a zombie now, but his Spinner instincts are still there. Must. Get. Some. Lovin'.

    • Zombie Spinner: (seeing Manny and Paige) Sexxxxxxyyyyyyyy!

    • Manny: Poor Paige saved my life, but she had to blow up to do it. Bummer.

    • Paige: Derek, my lovey dovey, let's repopulate.

    Notes (854)

    • This originally aired as six online-only¬†Degrassi Minis.

    • Charlotte Arnold and Spencer Van Wyk were on this trip, even though neither of them were apart of the Season 12 cast. This is the first time that non-current cast members attend the trip.

    • Just like "Degrassi of the Dead" this is not a canon episode, despite everyone playing the same characters from the regular show. It does make references to the show plots itself though, just has no impact on the regular season in the future.

    • This can be found on the Season 7 DVD as a special feature.

    • The second half of the episode was a behind-the-scenes look with actors Cassie Steele, Aubrey Graham and Lauren Collins.

    • This special aired on MTV Canada, not CTV, like the series itself.

    • In the U.S., this Special was titled "Degrassi: Doing What Matters".

    • The glasses that were used in this episode, were actually the ones Ephraim Ellis wore when he played Rick.

    Trivia (181)

    • Rick says that Danny was there laughing at him when he got the paint and feather dumped on him, while Danny was introduced in that season, he was not actually in that episode. This of course, does not mean the character wasn't there technically, just that he wasn't shown. Spinner is the only character in this special, that was actually in that episode.

    • In the credits, Ms. Hatzilakos is named Mrs. Hatzilakos. This is a goof, as Hatzilakos is her maiden name. Stone was her married name, as it is Peter and his father's last name. Also, in the end credits of the early seasons she was credited as MS. not Mrs., so it was clearly a goof.

    • In Canada the initial airdate was October 18th, 2007, which was about two months before the premiere of Season 7 (January 14th, 2008), which means Raymond Ablack and Charlotte Arnold had not even been on the show yet, and were in this special.

    • Ephraim Ellis (Rick) is credited, although he is never properly seen, however his voice is heard throughout the episode.

    • Emma was born at the end of the year dance in 1988 (this would be around June). So in June of 2001 she would have turned 13. Based on Snake saying "enjoy the last few days", it can be assumed that this is August sometime, which means Emma should be 13 however she is only 12.

    • In the beginning of this episode, Emma leaves her computer on, and her inbox opened. Later that same day, when Spike goes on, she obviously never sees the message box or e-mails.

    • In the US and in syndication in Canada, there is no cold open, as the opening scene is a recap of part 1.

    • When Emma comes out of the bathroom, if you look behind her, you can see that the little clamp at the top of the door isn't laid flat across the door. But when she tries to open it, it shows her reaching up and having to pull it back, when it was already back in the first place.

    • At the end of the opening credits the mail that flies around finishes off in a girl's cellphone and then they zoom in on her behind where the title of the show appears. The ending of Degrassi High also ended with the close up of a girl's behind with the title over top.

    • Everybody Wants Something: The song that Lucy, Caitlin and Spike sing when coming home after drinks, is the infamous song, Joey, Snake and Wheel's band use to sing in Degrassi Jr. High.

    • When J.T. walks in the school with a fedora on and Mr. Simpson says "fedora's are making a comeback", he is refering to the fact the Joey (from DJH and DH) always wore a hat, and mostly was a fedora.

    • The title of this two-part episode is the same as a Paul Simon song, off his 1972 self-titled debut album.

    • The title of this episode is the same as a song by Metallica off their 1988 album "...And Justice For All".

    • The title of this episode may be a reference to "The Dating Game" which was a game show in the 60s. It is also the same name of a 1959 movie starring Debbie Reynolds and Tony Randall.

  • A very good and perfect show. And by far, one of the best tv shows I have ever watched.

  • Why do teens watch this when they virtually live each episode in real life?
