Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Angry because some girls won't date him because of his "lowlife" reputation as a trailer-park resident, Shawn (Rider Strong) decides to live up--or down--to that reputation by hanging out with school bully Harley and his flunkies. Consequently, Shawn not only begins cutting classes, but also drifting away from his best friend Cory (Ben Savage). After weighing the advice of several authority figures, Cory elects to "rescue" Shawn by standing up to Harley--which may be the equivalent of committing suicide! Elsewhere, Jason (Jason Marsden) tries to give Eric (Will Friedle) a crash-course in ice skating, which explains how Nancy Kerrigan came to be tonight's special guest star. In this episode and this episode only, Kenny Johnson and not Danny McNulty is seen as Harley.
