Degrassi has had some major bromances over the years, including:
J.T. and Toby. Remember the episode (years before this picture was taken) when they bought their first condoms together? Vote for "Dressed in Black" if you want to see it again.
Jimmy and Spinner. Several of our Twitter followers nominated Jimmy and Spinner episodes for this week's poll, so you've got a few to choose from -- the one where Jimmy takes Spinner's ADHD medication, the one where they compete in a dance contest, and the one where Jimmy forgives Spinner for his involvement in the shooting.
Eli and Jake. They started out as rivals, but ended up as bros. Isn't it amazing that they stayed friends after the short film fiasco in "Building a Mystery?"
Check out the full list of nominees and VOTE for the episode you want to see again on the Degrassi Facebook page. We'll post the winning episode online on Friday.

This week's Degrassi poll asks fans to vote for the episode that's the most heartbreaking to watch, and it's a tough choice.
When we asked for poll topics on Twitter, several fans asked us to do a "most heartbreaking episode" or "saddest episode" poll, so you can thank @jennwastaken, @degrassihaha, @CholeSoledad, and @jiillyybeeaanns for this one.
Twitter fans also nominated heartbreaking episodes for us to feature in the poll. This week's options include:
"Time Stands Still" If you've never seen the school shooting that put Jimmy in a wheelchair, this two-parter is an essential piece of Degrassi history.
"Rock This Town" J.T. was one of Degrassi's most popular characters, and his final episode left his friends -- and the show's fans -- in shock.
"Jane Says" When Jane's father returned to town, she struggled to cope with traumatic memories from her childhood.
"Bitter Sweet Symphony" This episode, about Cam's suicide and its repercussions, is the most recent nominee, but that doesn't make it any less tragic.
Check out the full list of nominees and VOTE for your favorite episode on the Degrassi Facebook page. It could be one you've never seen, or one you want to see again (with a big box of tissues by your side). We'll post the winning episode online on Friday.

Our Twitter followers chose this week's topic and nominated their favorite episodes. Your voting options include these tumultuous first dates:
Holly J and Declan
Eli and Clare
Cam and Maya
As I'm writing this, Emma and Sean's first date (from way back in season one) is leading by a few votes. I'm surprised that Manny and Craig's first date isn't getting much support. I loved the way "Take My Breath Away" showed the same date from two different perspectives. Vote for your favorite first date now, and come back on Friday to watch the full episode featuring the winning date!

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:
"Look, it's a stack of dimes!" - Toby
"Guys, check it out. I have a solution to J.T.'s little problem!" - Danny
"Um... your lips are kinda sweaty." - 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!

Why are Bucket and Skinner's heads plastic-wrapped together? It'll make sense (kinda) when you watch the new Bucket and Skinner, tonight at 9pm et (6pm pt).
I love this pic.
The more Bucket and Skinner I watch, the more I appreciate Aloe. I like anyone who's willing to burst into song in public.
What's with the epic use of hair product? Tune in tonight!
And one last reason to watch tonight -- you'll get to see Ashley Argota dressed as broccoli and Tiffany Espensen dressed as a can of soda.
Tune in at 9pm et / 6pm pt for a Bucket and Skinner packed with MUCH MORE epic silliness than you see in this blog post! (Also: Bucket wears a really cute T-shirt with a polar bear riding on a whale.)
BTW, you know you can watch full episodes of Bucket and Skinner online, right? Just go to that link and click "Full Episodes."
