Figure if I'm gonna be going to Berkeley, I'm going to have to learn to do this thing anyway
—Dylan joins the protest


  • Dylan is the only one of the gang refusing to walk out on his finals, quoting that he finally has some direction in his life.
  • Steve is hesitant because of his trouble this year, but changes his mind.
  • 300 juniors, led by Tobi and Howard, join the Seniors in protesting Donna's treatment, as well as a dress code set to be implemented in the autumn.
  • When Jim advises Brandon to stop, he compares his father to Spiro Agnew
  • The infamous 'Donna Martin graduates' episode


  • The 'drunk-at-prom' story comes from Wasserman, whose cousin went through this sans the protest, as she did have to go to summer school and didn't get her diploma until August.[2]
