Howie Gelfand remarks to Nick "Sorry, Bill Laimbeer" (referring to his height). Laimbeer didn't become a Detroit Piston until February 16th, 1982. At the time that this episode would have taken place, (1980), Laimbeer probably would have had little relevance to Detroit-area youths. See more »
I don't need your help.
Ok. Tell you what. Why don't I just visit you then in the *prison*, where you'll be living, and give you some really good advice, like, y'know, should you get shanked in the yard or in the dining hall? When you have your baby, which prison guard should take care of it? That kind of thing. That'd be a great way to do my job, don't ya think?
Y'know, only time will tell. See you at the prison yard.

It took me a couple episodes to realize this show wasn't going to have the same 'feel good sappy happy' episodes as most other American television shows. It's a show about teenagers in the 80s but it's also a show about teenagers all the time. Watching this show was like reading Catcher in the Rye or maybe even a John Steinbeck book - it's about how teenagers are and moments in life we all go through or have struggled with. The writing is incredible, the actors are superb, and it's as genuine and quality as it gets for television. It's one the most truthful representation of "the best years of your life." I thoroughly enjoyed everything about this series. I miss it and I've only now seen the series once through.
