Episode Summary

EDIT
What's in a Name?
AIRED:
Janet pulls through, but the baby suffers from lung problems. Doctors successfully intubate the child, and she is able to breathe on her own. Steve and Janet name their daughter Madeline. Donna confronts her father, who admits that Gina is his daughter. Felice has always known this, as Dr. Martin had a drunken one-night stand with her sister during the 1970s. Donna feels that her parents treated Gina unfairly by hiding the truth and failing to support her financially. She storms out during Thanksgiving dinner. Donna desperately wants to tell Gina that they are sisters. However, she holds off for the time being because she does not want to spoil Gina's memories of her late stepfather. Dylan convinces Kelly and her family to help with the charity Thanksgiving dinner he has organized. Matt accuses him of making a move on Kelly, so Dylan diminishes himself in her eyes by bailing out of his own event. Kelly tries to stop Jackie from trashing Mel in front of Erin.

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (0)

    • NOTES (4)

      • Janet says that the name "Madeline" means "tower of strength." This is untrue; the name actually means "from Magdala." Obviously, that doesn't sound nearly as poetic.

      • Music:
        I've Got You Under My Skin by Cole Porter (sung by Luke Perry)

      • Jackie's remark that Kelly "pulled Dylan out of the fire all through high school" seems inaccurate, as this was primarily the Walshes' job until they all started leaving the show.

      • Donna becomes the fourth character to discover a long-lost half-sibling, following Dylan, Kelly and Noah. She and Gina hold the unusual distinction of being both half-sisters and first cousins, which Felice pointed out in a humorous remark. ("What are you going to do, introduce her as your sister AND your cousin?")

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • "What's in a Name?" comes from the famous line in William Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet":

        What's in a name? That which we call a rose
        By any other name would smell as a sweet.

        (II.ii.1-2)

      • "What's in a name?" is a line from "Hakuna Matata" from "The Lion King."
