    The holiday dance is right around the corner and the whole gang is making preparations. Donna is taking David, and everyone is giving her hell for it. Brandon doesn't dance, so he probably won't go. Kelly is going with a guy by the name of Chucky. This drives Steve nuts, because Chucky was a child actor on his mom's hit sitcom "Hartley House"; and generally made Steve's life miserable growing up. Making matters worse, Chucky reveals that him and nearly everyone else on the set knew that Steve was adopted, long before Samantha told Steve. This prompts Steve to punch Chucky out and get suspended from school (taking the punishment so that Chucky would sign to do the Hartley House reunion show). After a big fight with his mom, Steve decides that it's time to go try and find his real parents. Brandon tells Kelly why Steve punched Chucky out, and she promptly stands Chucky up to go console Steve. At the dance, Donna and David kiss for the first time, and Donna admits to everyone that she likes him. The show ends with the whole gang saying goodbye to Steve as he gets on the bus to go to New Mexico. Very touching moment. MVC: Brandon (30), Kelly (12), and Steve (13)
