  • A great episode

    It was amazing to see Johnny Depp as Republican Tom Hanson dressed as a punk, slam dancing, stage diving, jumping off speakers and crowd surfing(almost). This episode is great tv entertaining from beginning to end and there are some great scences in here and this episode very well depicts the way a teen might get sucked into something he/she doesnt really understand and then they cant get out of it until it's too late. Another to add to the long list of teen issues handled well by the writers of the show and portrayed excellently by the actors of the show.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • TRIVIA: As in many of his earlier roles, actor Jason Priestley was mistakenly credited as "Jason Priestly" in this episode.

    • TRIVIA: The songs in this episode were performed by the band Agent Orange.

    • TRIVIA: During the scene where Tom first meets Lancer at the coffee shop, the spoken dialogue does not match the character's lips, and was added in at a later date. Tom refers to kicking 'tail', but his mouth can clearly be seen saying the word 'ass'. The spoken dialogue is louder and clearer on this part, indicating it was edited in at a later date. A few scenes later, Doug also refers to getting their 'tails kicked', which was also dubbed in at a later date.

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Hanson: Fine. I can see I'm going to have to put this into terms you can understand. That's my stepbrother, Douglas. He's kinda lame, but it's not his fault. You kick his tail -- he tells my stepdad -- my stepdad kicks my tail. Then I'm going to have to come back here and kick your tail. So, why don't we leave him out of this and I'll just kick your tail right now?

    • Penhall: Studs and leather, here I come. KKK -- awesome band.
      Hanson: Band?
      Penhall: KKK -- Klean Kut Kids. It's a band. It's a gang. It's a floorwax. You gotta keep up with the popular culture, Hanson.
