Episode Summary

Opposite of Sex
After the police catch Quentin in a parked car with a prostitute, Rob orders him to attend group meetings for treatment of sexual addiction. He meets former Beverly Hills, 90210 star Jason Priestley, who convinces him that he has a serious problem. Jason comes to the set to help Quentin during a moment of weakness, and agrees to a date with Courtney. Quentin fears that Jason will fall off the wagon, but manages to convince him not to sleep with Courtney. The WB sets up a hotline that viewers can call to express their opinion on whether Kim should live or die. Marcy believes that it is just a gimmick, and is shocked to learn that her character's fate will actually be determined by the results. Despite Dave's best efforts (500 calls), viewers resoundingly declare that Kim should die. The death episode earns the show's highest rating ever. The network decides that Marcy should stay on the show because of her renewed popularity; so Rob introduces the character of Lynn, Kim's long-lost sister. Johnny's brother designs a Grosse Pointe pinball machine, which he plans to market. Johnny has a difficult time getting Hunter to agree to the use of her likeness.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (7)

      • Joan: Did you see the numbers from last night? The 'Kim Dies' episode was the highest-rated show ever. And I mean, ever!
        Rob: Hot Dog! Did we beat Sabrina?
        Joan: No.

      • Johnny: Come on. It was just a mistake.
        Hunter: Vietnam was a mistake. Zoe, Duncan, Jack and Jane was a mistake. Having a pinball drop out of my ass was no mistake!

      • Marcy: I'm the star of a national campaign. I'm on every wrapper at Subway. Did you know they have seven sandwiches with under six grams of fat?

      • Quentin: Jason, it's Q. I need you, man. I'm about to slip...into a lady!

      • Jason: Why do you think I left 90210, man? I was out of control. My compulsion took over.
        Quentin: Really? I thought it was because after eight years, there was nowhere left to go with Brandon.
        Jason: Oh, there were stories left.

      • Joan: We're doing billboards and radio ads, and get this: we're gonna be on every sandwich wrapper at Subway!
        Rob: Wow, that's great. I didn't think the WB had those kind of promotional dollars.
        Joan: Oh, we don't. It's all trade. So you're going to have to write an episode about a Subway turkey sandwich on wheat, but it doesn't have to be an A story.

      • Quentin: This is just a terrible misunderstanding. I was just giving the lady a ride home. You are a lady, right?

    • NOTES (2)

      • "Aqualung" by Jethro Tull plays on Quentin's car radio during the opening scene. "I'm Sorry" by Connie Francis plays during the montage of Quentin making amends.

      • As she meets Jason for the first time, Courtney offers the opinion that 90210 "went into the toilet" after his departure. Bonnie Somerville actually made a guest appearance on the series in the post-Priestley era.
