Goof: Although there are PA announcements about the Degrassi Tigers sports teams, Luke is wearing a sweatshirt that says "Degrassi Panthers". It's not one of the old Jr. High shirts (which still can be seen from time to time - BLT wears one sometimes) but a pastel colored cut-off sweatshirt.
Scott: (to Kathleen) The truth is, I don't want to see you embarrass yourself. I didn't want to say it, but it's not just because you're a niner; I saw your audition you're not a very good actress.
(talking to Scott)
Kathleen: If you love me why do you hurt me?
Kathleen: He loves me.
Melanie: If he hits you he doesn't love you.
Kathleen It didn't really hurt, and I deserved it. If I didn't make him mad all the time...
Melanie: What are you talking about? Nothing gives a guy the right to hit you.
Kathleen: You don't understand. He needs me. I can change him.
Degrassi Talks: Rebecca Haines (Kathleen) hosted the Degrassi Talks: Abuse episode, and revealed that she was the victim of date rape in real life.
In the new Degrassi(Degrassi:The Next Generation) also deals with this but it resembels the episode a lot like revolving around a school play and having an abusive boyfriend.
Airing: This episode came with a warning label at the begining.
