  • Brenda paid 350 dollars for an SAT prep course and her score in English went up 20 points.
  • Brandon calls Brenda the mathematician of the two of them
  • Dylan is accused of having cheated on the SATs, which of course he did not.
  • Dylan tells Brenda that he cheated on her while she was in Paris
  • Brenda breaks up with Dylan – for the second time
  • Dylan starts dating Kelly.
  • Donna is Catholic.


  • Rick was supposed to break up with Brenda after she reveals that she lied, but allegedly Shannen Doherty didn't think it worked if a guest star came on the show and broke up with Brenda, so it was changed to Brenda dropping Rick.[1]
