Would you look at her. She always wanted a big sister
—Dylan to Kelly about Erica and Brenda


  • The band members are Carlos, Lenny and PK
  • Steve tells Brandon that Laura's parents told him that Laura had tried to commit suicide before
  • Dylan and Kelly finally break up


  • Half of the scene where David and Donna are in the apartment with the boom box in front of them has been edited out of the DVD release. The part that has been edited out is Donna announcing to David that she has secured Babyface for the gig at the CU carnival and then David playing a Babyface song for Donna.
