Episode 2x21 - Everybody’s Talking ‘Bout It
My Alternate Title: - "Inform ALL The Parents That Their Kids Are Having Sex!"
Quick Recap: Brenda has finally found her driving confidence (although her skill level remains a mystery.) Steve isn’t on drugs anymore. Yeah…that’s about it.
Oh yeah, aren’t Donna and David a couple now or something? Wow, they’re boring.
Quick Overview: You remember how everyone at West Beverly got all giddy and turned into massive 10 year old’s when they were taking that Sex Ed class last season? Well, this entire episode is going to be one big Sex Education class. You’ve been warned. Anyway, Andrea wants to start a petition to have condoms distributed in schools. (Because this is something that Andrea has great use for apparently…). Donna’s uptight mother is totally against the idea, and I think she’s basically against sex in general. I’m pretty sure she raised Donna to believe that sex is the world’s greatest evil or something. Oh well, at least it’s amusing.
Remember back when Brenda had that pregnancy scare? Well, in true Walsh fashion she’s decided to completely exploit it in an article for school. Needless to say, Dylan isn’t too pleased with the fact that their personal life is about to become public knowledge. You’d think all the time he’s spent hanging around with Brandon that he would have come to expect something like this from “Those Walsh people.”
"One thing is for sure: when it comes to teenage sexuality, everybody’s passion can become inflamed." Um, again am I the only one hearing a weird innuendo in there?
-I really want John’s cookie. And no, that one isn’t an innuendo…I just really want a cookie.
-Nat, you’re getting a little too excited about this whole condom thing. It’s a little creepy.
-Hmm, this episode Kelly’s mom has “a little bug”. MORE FORESHADOWING!
-You go Donna. This the first episode that you’ve actually had worth wile dialogue.
-Andrea Zuckerman and Donna Martin leading the next sexual revolution? Whaaaa?
-Now Jackie doesn’t think her food smells good, and just wants tea? Again, FORESHADOWING!
-“Now Andrea wants us to start handing out condoms on the street.” Um…excuse me?
-DAILY BRANDON ANEURYSM FACE!
-“Avoiding anyone in particular?” Yes, crazy stalkers who wait for me outside of the bathroom after I clearly said I didn’t want to talk to them. In other words - YOU Brandon!
-Sheesh, bring up the subject that Andrea is a virgin, and she becomes a real Debbie Downer.
"Brandon, let me make one thing clear: I’m the one who’s feelings were hurt here." God Bless You, Andrea. You tell that smug bastard that you don’t owe him anything.
-I think it’s blatantly obvious that John has the hots for Andrea. Come on Andrea - turn away from the blindness that is Brandon Walsh, and see what’s right in front of you!
-Aww good, they’re going on a date!
-“I’m pregnant.” CALLED IT! (Okay, so I knew beforehand, but I still called it. Bam!)
-I love how Brandon got upset that his face wasn’t on the TV news coverage. Poor Brando…
-So, Donna’s mom thinks that if you don’t tell kids about sex, they won’t do it. Hmm, that’s…pathetic.
-Andrea looks especially old in this episode.
-Ah, this is the Felice Martin that I’ve come to know and hate. Condescending and lovely to the last!
-Yes, abstinence is great in theory, but it’s clearly not that realistic. The more you tell kids not to do something, the more they’re going to want to do it.
-Of course Brandon thinks it was easy for Jim to talk to him about sex, because JIM DIDN’T TALK TO HIM! He just said “Be responsible. It’s about romance.”
-David wonders if it’s time to make a move on Donna? Dude, you’ve been together for like a month. You’re going to have to wait a lot longer than that! Trust me…
-Oh no, I’m getting the feeling that the last half of this episode is going to be an Andrea Zuckerman moral tirade.
-Does Steve seriously still think he’s going to get back with Kelly? Seriously dude, get OVER it!
-Brandon’s bashing Andrea because he thinks she knows nothing about the “feelings” side of sex (which is a fair statement), but really Brandon…you have SO much experience in that area…
-I didn’t realize that being a virgin was like the most embarrassing thing that could ever happen to you…
-It’s nice to know that even city councilmen/women can fold under the icy stare of Felice Martin. Talk about peer pressure.
-Brenda doesn’t understand how publishing an article about her sex life with Dylan would be upsetting to him. Hmm…let’s ponder this for a moment, shall we?
-What is the deal with Brandon Walsh? Why do all these girls flock to him? I just don’t get it. I mean, sure he’s cute - but spend a day with him and I’m fairly certain you’ll be turned off pretty quick.
-The awkward moment when a condom falls out of your wallet in front of your girlfriend.
Kelly: How can my mom like a guy who’s idea of a good time is a gum massage?
Brenda: Kelly, he’s a dentist.
Donna: If you say that kids don’t need condoms because they shouldn’t be having sex in the first place, then you’re overlooking two very important things. One is that a lot of kids are having sex, and the other is that they are kids.
Mel: It’s so much easier with a boy. You just give him a copy of Playboy and say “Good luck”.
Mel: I’m kidding!
Brandon: Whoa, whoa, hey - you’re going to desert me in my hour of need?
Brenda: We’ll send you a postcard.
Dylan: See you tomorrow.
David: So, what kind of ID do you need to rent a hotel room?
Dylan: A hotel room?
David: Well, you can’t just seduce a girl in her own car, right?
Dylan: Who do I look like, Ann Landers?
Brandon: No, more like Doctor Ruth.
Donna: Look, AIDS is not the only sexually transmitted disease out there.
David: I know that! Look, I don’t have any of those, I swear!
What We Learned Today:
Condoms are evil, and they must be destroyed.
P.S: Please don’t take what I just wrote seriously.
