[Students are sitting
Mrs. Hatzilakos (Over the intercom)- Students are reminded that finals are just three days away, so while you are partying tonight at prom,
please remember to be safe and not to party too hard. We still want you all to
pass your finals. But, have fun tonight.
And remember that Degrassi's code of conduct will be strictly enforced.

Paige- Yeah. We are so going to have fun tonight.

(Students are walking
out of Degrassi. We see Liberty, Emma, and J.T. walking out...)

Liberty- I'm excited for the after prom.
Emma- Ew. I don't need to hear about your sex life.
Em. Who are you taking to prom? Toby
Emma- No. I'm going alone.
Liberty- You can't go to prom alone.
Liberty- What? What happened with her and Peter?

Liberty- What? No.
Emma- Yeah. (J.T. laughs.)
Liberty- I so knew they wouldn't last. And she
wouldn't hear it. I knew I was right.

bench when Ellie walks over to him...)

(Spinner is cleaning tables
when Alex walks over to him.)

Alex- Good. Because I want to go to prom.
Spinner- What? I didn't think that was your scene.
not. But I figured, what the heck. Senior
year. Might as well go once. (She

ask one of your whore friends to go with you. I have a boyfriend. (She walks off.)
[Outside the Dot...]
(Manny is walking down
the street. Liberty sees her and walks over
you have something you want to tell me?
Liberty- Really? Not, "I'm sorry I doubted you?" Or maybe, "You were right."
Manny- Nope. (She starts to walk away.)
Liberty- So you don't want to tell me about Peter. (Manny
turns around.) I know what happened.
do you know? (Pauses.) You know
what. It doesn't even matter. It's
over. I'm done with him.
you would have listened to me though, none of this would have happened.
I listened to half of the things you said, I would be in my room every Friday night.

bed when Paige walks out of a bathroom...)

Hazel- No. It just seems like you like him.

Paige- Oh. No. (Pauses.) I'm not ready to move on yet. He just...Matt... I thought
he was my soul mate. I just...I still can't believe he dumped me for that pregnant

know. (She hugs him.) I know you
did. He didn't deserve you.
(Emma is sitting on the
porch, staring, when she sees Jimmy approaching. She stands up and walks over
Emma- Hey. What are you doing here?
wanted to talk to you.
Jimmy- Yeah. The dance tonight... Were you going to go?
one’s asked me yet.
you like to go?
don't have a date already?
I did. Heather Sinclair caught the flu though.
It's kind of short notice, and I don't want you to feel like you're obligated or anything. Just pretend the chair isn't here and you can turn me down proper.

would have asked you sooner, but Heather asked me first and I wasn't sure if you would have wanted to go.
Emma- Oh. (She smiles.) I would have.

still hanging over my head.

totally deserve it. (The doorbell rings...)

Matt- Yesterday. 11 pounds 9 ounces.
a big kid.
she had the kid yesterday, what are you doing here? Shouldn't you be at hospital?
Matt- Yeah. I should. (Pauses.) I was in the delivery room with her. And I saw her give birth. And it was amazing and so incredible. And
the only thing I could think about was how much I missed you.
don't want to help her raise some kid that's not mine. I want to raise my own
kid, with you.
sorry Paige. For everything. I can't
live without you. Move back with me. Go
to university out there. We could be happy.
(Paige is silent for a few moments.) Come on Paige. Just you and me.
don't want to be apart anymore. I want to be together, with you. (Hazel walks in.)
what's taking you so long? We only have two hours left to put on makeup. (Hazel sees Matt standing at the door.) Please
tell me that's just a Matt look-a-like.
Hazel. How are you?
what's going on?
telling her how sorry I am. I was stupid.
I made a mistake. I want her to move out to the Yukon with me.

her like dirt and you expect her to just take you back, just like that?

couch and sits down. Hazel follows.) Are

don't tell me that you are seriously considering going back with him?
[At Emma's house...]
(Emma is putting on make-up
when Manny walks in...)
Manny- Wow. (Emma looks at Manny.) You look amazing.
Manny- Yeah. (Pauses.) Why are you getting so dressed
up? I didn't think we were going to get that dressed up.

Emma- Yeah. He came over and asked me.

I could do.
Manny- Oh. (She sits down on the bed.) I feel like
a shlub now. I didn't really...

Emma- What? What are you talking about? You look
fine. If you want to...Use my makeup if you want.

Emma- Why? Craig and you were a train wreck and you still can deal with it.

Emma- Sorry. I'm just trying to help.

I just, I don't feel like I can go. I don't feel like I'm ready to see
going to leave. (She stands up.) You
have fun though.
Emma- Thanks. (Pauses.) You should really think about
coming. (Manny shakes her head.) It
won't be the same without you. (Manny leaves.)
(Spinner is tying his
tie when Kendra walks into the room...)
someone finally forgave you?
be stupid. You know me and Alex have been dating for like months.
Kendra- Sure. Sure. I believe that.
your deal? Can't you be happy for me, just once?
you think about someone other than yourself for just once? (She leaves the room.)
(Manny is walking down
the street when a car pulls up to her. She stops walking and the car window rolls
down. Craig is inside...)
think walking like that's going to ruin your dress.
do you know about dress maintenance?
are you going?
Craig- What? When has that ever stopped you?
just broke up with my boyfriend. I'm not really in the partying mood.
Santos, when are you not in the partying mood?
not that big of a partier.
Craig- Yeah. Sure. (Pauses.) You’re seriously not going? (Manny shakes her head.) Come on. You need to have some fun, especially
if you just broke up with someone. Get back in the dating zone.
sorry, how long did it take you to go on a date after Ashley broke your heart?

Craig smiles. He waves.) I'll
see you there. (He drives off. Manny
stands and stares off.)

still for a moment. Hazel grabs her arm.)

could he just come back and offer something like that?
too good for him. He doesn't deserve you.
know. It's just...He's Matt. I thought
I loved him.
didn't love you. (Pauses.) Just
remember that okay. He treated you bad.
He lied to you. He hurt you. (Paige
nods.) Let's go party. (They walk
into the dance.)
[On the other side of
(J.T., Liberty, and Toby
are standing around...)
Toby, no date?
Toby- I told you I asked someone. She'll be here.
J.T.- Sure. Sure. I'll believe it when I see it. In the meantime, I think I'll dance with my lady.
Care to dance?

the wall, staring at his watch.)
(Liberty, J.T., Hazel
and her date, Emma and Jimmy, and several other students are dancing. We see
that Craig is dancing, but Paige is just standing...)
Paige- Yeah. Just...You know what, I need to go to the washroom real quick. I'll be right back. (She leaves. Craig walks over to the food table when he sees Manny walk in. He
walks over to her...)

Manny- Yeah. (Pauses.) Where's Paige?

you sure that Paige won't get mad?

(Manny smiles. They step on to the dance floor and start to slow dance.)
(Paige walks outside of
the building and sits down on the steps. She wipes tears from her eyes. She looks up and sees Matt walking towards her.
Paige stands up...)

never meant to hurt you. Never. (He
hugs her. Paige pushes him away.)
Paige- No. I'm not doing this anymore.
Matt- What? Doing what?
you talk me out of anything. You told me you and Charlie were just friends. You told me you were just trying to be a good friend.
you lied to me about so much of it. I let you talk me out of any of my doubts. I can't do that anymore. I can't set
myself up for you to hurt me again.
I don't want to hurt you anymore. I just want to be with you. (He kisses her.) I love you.
(Paige starts to cry.) Don't cry.
I don't want to hurt you. I just want to be with you.

Manny. Craig, could we have a word?
Craig- Sure. (He gets up and walks outside the dance hall with Paige.) What's up? (Paige pushes him against the wall and passionately
kisses him.) I thought we were just friends.
Paige- Sorry. Stupid to think you would think of me otherwise.
This is so embarrassing.
Craig- No. I do think of you...When I asked you, I was kind of hoping we would go as a date,
not as friends.
Craig- Yeah. (Paige smiles. She pulls a key out of
the beauty of having prom at a hotel. Easy access to rooms and no threat of parental
interruptions. You in?
Paige- Um...Sure? Don't tell me you went to prom with me just so you could hook up again with your slutty
ex-girlfriend. (He grabs the key from Paige.)

Dylan- Ellie? She's cool. Little uptight sometimes,
but nice. Why?

Jimmy- Yeah. (She grabs his hand and smiles.)

the street. He sees some guys standing at the corner. He walks over to them...)
Toby- Hey. (Pauses.) You guys have anything?

walk away.) Wait! Emma! (She turns around and walks back over.) Would you maybe want
