    I was never really a fan of Beverly Hills 90210 until I watched this episode. If you have seen this episode then you know what I am talking about, and if you haven't seen this episode, you really should. The final moments where the friends are up by the sign that says West Bev makes the episode. The song playing at the end Blood is Thicker than Water is the moment where the whole feeling about the show comes out. If you loved 90210 this is what you remember and not moments like David and Donna's wedding which yes was nice but not a way to end the show. Anyways if you get the chance to see this episode please do!moreless

    The gang all receive their high school diplomas during this episode and set the stage for the next season - deciding on colleges (Andrea and Brenda) and summer plans (Dylan and Kelly).



    The scene I liked the best was the flashback scene with Brenda and Dylan because Dylan told Brenda "I loved you more than I ever thought I could love anyone, maybe that was the problem." ~ you could still see a connection/chemistry between Brenda and Dylan as well as Shannen and Luke even though Dylan was Kelly.



    I also love how in the morning after the gang hung the "W Bev Hi '93" sign over the Hollywood sign they just stood their staring at it and every single one of them had a smile on their face - it was as if they were saying the past is the past and it was time to move on to their futures. -JMOmoreless

    I might be bias because I hadn't watched many of the previous episodes but I thought that this episode was brilliant - reminding us what they had all been doing for the past three years and why we love the show. It was great seeing clips of Kelly and Brenda as proper friends, Brenda and Dylan as a couple, Andrea offering herself to Brandon and Andrea and Steve trying to exchange an egg.

    I especially enjoyed the clips when everyone got their diplomas - showing the best bits of each character. I was also glad Kelly's dad showed up and Dylan patched things up with his mom.moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Steve mentions that his father is at the graduation ceremony with his stepmother and the "three flying monkey-children". Later in the series, though, he only has two half-brothers: Austin and Ryan and there's no mention of Steve's stepmother.

    • When Miss Teasley hugs Steve, she is missing the fake fingernail on the pinky finger of her left hand.

  • QUOTES (1)

    • Andrea: (Valedictorian Speech) Thank you. Oh, Mr. Meyers, Miss Teasley, uh, fellow graduates, ladies and gentlemen. Uh, today we stand here united as a class. Tomorrow we go our separate ways as individuals…on our own and individually. We do this to follow paths, unfathomable path, which weave before us…We do so with the certainty… with the certainty…that we don't have the faintest idea what we're doing at all…Which could be a very frightening prospect in a world where the… in a world where the boundaries of nations and the balance of nature can change overnight. Except that the years that we have spent at West Beverly have given us the foundation to face the future. But, we haven't just learned facts and figures, logic and reasoning skills, but we have learned the value of friendship— friendship, loyalty, and love— which will not be diminished just because we may not end up together. The memories that we have shared will not go away simply because we do. So even if the future does not always meet our expectations, or the fates are cruel to us at times, no one can ever take this moment from me… From me, from you, from any of us. No one can ever take away this moment in time.
