  • The Emmy nominated Degrassi: The Next Generation (shortened to 'Degrassi' from Season 10+) is a spin-off of the long running Degrassi franchise from Linda Schuyler, creator of Kids on Degrassi Street, Degrassi Junior High, Degrassi High and School's Out. Similar to its predecessor the teens of Degrassi Community School face a variety of issues, from sexual abuse, to drug addiction, to heartaches. It's never a dull moment in the halls of Degrassi. *Note, episode airdates are Canadian, and the episode order is in production, not in the order originally aired.moreless

    • 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 (909)

    • The way Johnny and Bruce attempted to throw pig's blood on Holly J was a nod to how Alex dumped paint on Rick in the episode Time Stands Still and ultimately a nod to "Carrie".

    • Rick returns as a spirit

    • The glasses that were used were actually Ricks from three years ago.

    • This Special first aired December 24, 2007 in the U.S.

    • Though Stefan Brogan did not appear in this particular episode, he did direct it and do the voice for Jimmy's Living Dead Dance at the end. He rapped it and everything. He claimed he was trying to sound like Michael Jackson.

    • This special aired October 26, in the States.

    • Shenae Grimes (Darcy), Stefan Brogren (Snake), Jake Goldsbie (Toby), and Amanda Stepto (Spike) do not appear in this episode.

    • This episode is not canon to the series.

    Trivia (407)

    • The does not technically appear as Rick in this episode, Ephraim Ellis does the voice-over as Rick's spirit when the sprit possesses Holly J., phones Spinner, etc. Also, his name appears in the credits of the episode.

    • When Spinner is walking to Degrassi, the sign that he passes says "I'v been waiting for you spinner".

    • Manny is the only character who lives until the end.

    • 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.

    • When Spike calls the police she never says anything about Emma being in a hotel, or even what room she's in, and yet the police miraculously arrive at the exact hotel and the exact room Emma was in.
