Episode Summary

EDIT
Rock 'n' Roll Parking Lot
AIRED:
Pat makes Joel steal his dad's precious Cadillac and go to the Def Leopard concert so they wouldn't be stuck home "with only three networks". At the concert, Joel uses his smooth talk to buy tickets from a scalper for him, Pat, Isabelle and Holly Kent, who he met at the parking lot waiting outside for her date to come out of the concert. Just as they are about to get in, Joel changes his mind and rescues his sister from the most humiliating night of her life. Unfortunately, he is caught red handed and his parents decide to act tougher on him – thanks to melancholic, depressive poem he wrote in English class entitled "Smells Like Teen Spirit" – and Cheryl doesn't remember a thing the morning after.moreless

    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Karen: "Smells Like Teen Spirit"...
        (...)
        Karen: What do you think this poem means?
        Bill: I know what it means. It means he's on drugs. And chopping wood is going to straighten up his act.
        Karen: Oh, good parenting, Bill. Give a kid on drugs an axe.

    • NOTES (3)

      • Def Leppard's Pyromania album was not released until 1983. A Def Leppard T-shirt worn by a character included a picture of Vivian Campbell on it. However, Campbell did not join the band until 1992, after the death of Steve Clark.

      • When Pat, Isabelle and Joel are in the Larsens' living room trying to pick a show to watch on TV, their options are: The Fall Guy, Dynasty and Quincy, but actually only Quincy was on the air in 1980. The other two shows premiered in 1981. Also, The Fall Guy and Dynasty both aired on ABC, with the former being the lead-in for the latter, so they would not be on simultaneously.

      • Music

        Cyndi Lauper: "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun"
        Def Leppard: "Rock of Ages"
        The Tubes: "She's a Beauty"

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Smells Like Teen Spirit

        This is a reference to the Nirvana song, "Smells Like Teen Spirit." The song was written by Kurt Cobain, Dave Grohl, and Krist Novoselic. The song was released in 1991.

      • Rock 'N' Roll Parking Lot

        The episode title is a reference to the 1979 comedy film Rock N Roll High School.
