  • Emma and Manny want to lose weight.

    "Our Lips Are Sealed" part 1 is one of my favourite Degrassi episodes. It deals with self-body-image and it's really relatable because a lot of teenagers don't like their body. In this episode, Emma and Manny decide to try to lose weight. All is fine when they cut out junk food and excercise, until Emma goes overboard. I think it's in part 1, where Emma and Manny start throwing up their food as well, which is very serious. I also love the subplot with Snake trying to get Spike back. I give this episode a 10/10.moreless
  • Emma's eating disorder.

    This episode is my second favorite in the series! I love the issue, I research it a lot. Anyways since Emma is my favorite character & it's such a powerful episode it;'s my second favorite in he series, I labeled this out of character because the Emma we know & love wouldn't act like this, anyways the highlights of this episode is when Emma faints, that montage of purging, the first they purged, the scream fest in the bathroom. But a bright side of the episode is Spike took Snake back! Which is so amazing, and the best part when Emma comes out of the bathroom at the end with that napkin, so priceless!moreless
  • Perfect

    Emma and Manny start dieting because Emma is convinced she is fat. Snake tries to get back together with Spike. Emma continues her diet, and it soon becomes apparant she is trying WAY too hard to lose weight... is this going to turn into an eating disorder of some sort? To Be Continued...

    good episode, i have mentioned how much i like 2-parters and this was no exception, it really made me want to know what happens in the second half, and it had a good plot throughout, so the grade I am going to give it is an A+moreless
  • Emma and Manny's friendship suffers another serious blow...

    i personally think part two was better

    "Your supposed to be my friend, im supposed to be able to TRUST you!" just the right amount of dramatics for me in my opinion

    Emma is skinny enough as it is it was sad that she would think she needs to get thinner. a good line in this episode was:

    "You think its fun to point at the big tub or lard? its not! i know whats wrong so you can quite pointing it out!!" i liked how crazy emma got. i reckon it was good. they don't really do many screaming bits in degrassi. Degrassi rock onmoreless
  • emma's life is chaos, and when manny says she wants to go on a diet, emma might have just found the right thing for the both of them. she put the both of them on a strict diet, not knowing that things might just spin out of control.moreless

    Ever since snake left, life at emma's house is chaos. manny and spike have much more dependent on emma around the house, with jack, and house work, making it too diffacult to control any thing. in about one week manny is going to see an agent that saw her in the kevin smith movie. and when manny can't fit into her luckey jeans, emma insists that the two of them go on a strict diet, to lose five pounds.for the first two days they exersise and eat very light, untill snake, who is trying to get back together with spike, brings over mussaka, and the girls eat more than they wanted to. emma convinced that both of them purge themselves to rid them of the food. they continue to purge or not eat for the rest of the week, until after loosing the five pounds and her jeans fit again, manny gave in. she ate a piece of pizza then emma caught her and tried to get her to purge it up. manny said that there was too much crazy in there and ran off. emma tried too run after her, but fainted in the hall. when manny got home she told emma she got the agent and that she heard about what happenned, since emma's parents got back together, snake was going to make dinner. emma promised she would eat some, but then snuck off to go purge herself, leading her down the road of an eating disorder.moreless
