Trivia: LD's leukemia, which she found out about in Just Friends, is now in complete remission. She's not in school, however, as she's sailing around the world with her father, and completing school via correspondence courses.
Trivia: Lucy continues making tapes for LD, a practice she began in Sixteen (2). The camcorder she's using now is smaller, and more modern than the one used last season.
Trivia: Michelle was away for the summer visiting her mother; this is how BLT had the time to find a new girlfriend.
Trivia: The car that Joey wants to buy is a classic Ford Mustang Mach 1. The price of it ($2,999) should tell anyone who knows cars that it's not in very good shape.

Dwayne: (on the phone) Penny?
Dwayne: Hi, it's me, Dwayne. I was gonna call you, but....
Penny: Dwayne, my God it's so horrible!
Dwayne: What's wrong?
Penny: I am so scared! I don't know what I'm going to do!
Dwayne: Wha, what's wrong?
Penny: I don't know why this is happening! I'm not a bad person, Dwayne!
Dwayne: Will you calm down and just tell me what's up? Hello?
Penny: (sighs) Do you remember me telling you about Bob, my old boyfriend?
Penny: Well a few weeks ago, he applied to the forces. There was a medical. They took some blood. He tested HIV positive.
Dwayne: HIV? What do you mean?
Penny: (voice quivering) Don't you know? It's, it's AIDS. I went to the doctor and I'm positive too. You have to get tested. I don't know how it happened, neither does Bob. I'm not (pauses, sobbing) a bad person, Dwayne. Oh God, I'm so scared!
Crowd: Joey! Joey! Joey!
US Airing: This last series of Degrassi High almost never aired on PBS. Excess coverage of the first U.S. war with Iraq prompted the "weekend edition" of what was then called The MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour, which bumped Degrassi.
