  • The first sign of Brenda's annoyance, as well as Andrea's.

    Mr. Denzell is an old history teacher, and the proverbial teacher that no student really likes, but actually learn more from him than they know at the time. For the first time in his life, Brandon is struggling in history class, and was getting C's. Meanwhile he sees Steve pulling in A's (Which should have been sign #1 that trouble was on the horizon). Turns out Steve had a copy of all of the quizzes, and therefore could study exactly what would be on the test. Brandon takes the quiz and pulls an A, but in the process, because of the "Denzell Curve" it lowered Andrea's grade to a C. On the next quiz, she catches him red handed, and all hell breaks loose. She is furious with him. Brandon goes off on Denzell saying that he doesn't know how to make people think, and questioning his teaching methods. Then he changes his tire and all is good. Denzell then flips the script on everyone and instead of the test he had been giving since the dinosaurs, he gives them an essay question. Brandon apologizes to Andrea, and alls well that ends well. Nice little episode asking the question: to cheat or not to cheat? Oh yeah, and Dylan tells Kelly and Brenda that he prefers blondes to brunettes. So Brenda does what ANYONE would do, and that is dye her hair blonde. Unfortunately it turns to a shade of red and looks horrible. Dylan is there to save the day, and the seeds were planted for those 2 to hook up, however the way Brenda was acting throughout the episode is the reason I dislike the character quite a bit. Very immature, and very annoying. MVC: Brandon (5), Steve (2), and Andrea (2)
