This episode depicts alcoholism.

You know, the tragedy of this country, is that creeps like you two end up running it
—Dylan to bullies

The Green Room is the 2nd episode of Season 1 of Beverly Hills, 90210.


The Walshes come to see that style is no substitute for substance as Brandon hits the beach with one new friend who may have both, and another who fears she has neither, while Brenda is left high and dry there by style-conscious Kelly.


Brandon meets Dylan McKay, a mysterious loner who stops some jocks from harassing Scott in tech class. Dylan takes Brandon surfing and introduces him to his friends, including a troubled young woman named Sarah. Brandon becomes disturbed by the behavior of Dylan's friends, who treat Sarah like a possession. Brandon grows tired of Dylan's bad boy act after he raids a hotel room. Dylan reveals that he lives in the hotel, and only pretended to break in to preserve his reputation.

Sarah nearly drowns while surfing drunk, but Brandon and Brenda save her life. Sarah seeks help for her drinking problem, and thanks Brandon for convincing her to believe in herself. Brenda is miffed at Kelly after she leaves Brandon and her stranded at the beach. Steve's actress mother encourages him to be nice to David because she mistakenly believes that David's father is a producer.

1408 Walnut Avenue Minneapolis, MN 55348

  • It was 105 degrees on the day the scene with the mailman was filmed, and the producers were having a hard time keeping the "snow" - which in reality was just a soap suds mixture - from evaporating in the heat.
