Episode Summary

EDIT
Honeymoon in L.A. (1)
AIRED:
Dwayne and Whitley recall their honeymoon in Los Angeles. Whitley insisted on going shopping in Beverly Hills while Dwayne drove to Inglewood to pick up basketball tickets. During her excursion, not-guilty verdicts were announced for the police officers who beat Rodney King. The shopping center closed after the riots broke out, leaving Whitley stranded. After hearing the verdicts, Dwayne got out of his rental car and began kicking the tires. A cop drove by and decided to arrest him, much to the chagrin of his partner. The students and staff of Hillman discuss the case. Lena sees it as just another example of the injustice toward her race, while others criticize the prosecution for overconfidence. Freddie arrives, and stuns everyone by sporting straight hair and a business suit. She is enrolling in law school and helping med student Kim run the dorm. Lena calls her a sell-out, but Freddie argues that she is trying to make a difference from within the system. She feels that Lena's militant attitude will only land her in trouble. Charmaine, the talkative student who toured the campus the previous spring, enrolls at Hillman and rooms with Lena and Gina. A goofy freshman makes a fool of himself as he tries to hit on Lena, while she drools over a new basketball star.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • After the scene where Dwayne threatens to throw her shopping bags out of their car, balled-up newspaper (as opposed to gift tissue paper and actual expensive items) is shown in the bag over Whitley's left shoulder.

    • During the scene when Dwayne and Whitley are arguing about whether to go shopping or not, Dwayne kicks Whitley out of the car and pulls away as if to leave her on the curb. Watch the footage of the car pulling away. The same footage is used again later in a different scene!

  • QUOTES (1)

    • Lena: Nothing ever changes!
      (Freddie enters in a business suit, hair slicked back.)
      Freddie: Hi, everyone.
      (Everyone stares at her, slackjawed.)
      Lena: I take that BACK!

  • NOTES (5)

    • Charmaine Brown is the second character from The Cosby Show to join the cast of A Different World. The first was obviously Denise Huxtable.

    • Boyz II Men begins singing the opening theme song this season.

    • Debbie Allen appears briefly during the opening shots of Dwayne and Whitley's honeymoon. She is seen scrubbing her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

    • The series moves to 8 PM in The Cosby Show's old time slot. From this point on, the ratings for the show began to drop. The show was no longer in the top 20, and continued to be put on hiatus.

    • Jada Pinkett and Ajai Sanders become official cast members and Karen Malina White joins the cast as Charmaine Brown. This was White's third appearance on the show.
