  • Degrassi: The Awkward-est Episode Winner!

    Posted on 04/26/2013 by Lisa

    The winner of this week's Fan Favorite Friday poll is the oh-so-awkward Mercy Street from way back in season four! Watch the full episode online.

    If you've never seen Mercy Street, here's what you need to know going into it: Rick was abusive to his girlfriend, Terri, and put her in a coma. In this episode, he returns to Degrassi, and a lot of people (including Emma and Paige) don't want him there. The famed awkwardness of this episode takes place in the subplot, which is about J.T. trying to impress Manny. A few highlights:

    Toby and Manny
    "Look, it's a stack of dimes!" - Toby

    Toby, Danny, and J.T.
    "Guys, check it out. I have a solution to J.T.'s little problem!" - Danny

    J.T. and Manny
    "Um... your lips are kinda sweaty." - Manny

    J.T. and Manny
    "Uh, I can explain!" - J.T.

    That is just at taste of the over-the-top awkwardness contained in Mercy Street. After rewatching it just now, I'm fascinated by the friendship between J.T., Toby, and Danny. Danny was the one to pull J.T.'s pants down, embarrassing him in front of his girlfriend, but Danny was also the one who used a fake id to buy the penis pump as a gift for J.T. What do you think -- is that a true depiction of what guy friendships are like? You embarrass the heck out of each other, but you also help each other through rough times?

    Next week, we'll post a new poll, so watch Mercy Street now!
