The friendship between Grace Cardinal and Tiny Bell formed in their sophomore year of high school in Season 13 of Degrassi.

Friendship History


Their first interaction on-screen was shown during their time in the rubber room, though they appear to have been friends before. They often hang out with Zig Novak and Maya Matlin.


Season 13

In The World I Know, Tiny is a student in the remedial room. Grace approaches him, and nearly stabs him in his crotch, missing by an inch in his seat, and yells at him for looking at her sister. He promises to not do it again. When Ms. Grell is explaining the assignment and responds to Grace's backtalk, he says to Grace, "Oooh, you got grelled!" He and Grace partnered up for the assignment. Later, during presentations, they both laugh when Maya Matlin insults Zig in front of the class.

In Better Man, they hang out with Maya and Zig throughout the episode.

In Close to Me, Maya tries to convince Grace, Zig, and Tiny to come to the dance, but Zig tells her no. Grace and Zig later show up to the dance, but Tiny does not.

In You Are Not Alone, Grace is in the rubber room with Maya when Tiny enters and talks to Zig, before leaving with Zig. Later, Grace explains to Maya the dynamic of Tiny's gag and how Zig is affected from it.

In Enjoy the Silence, Tiny asks Maya and Grace where Zig is.

In How Bizarre, they are in the rubber room together, along with Maya and Zig.

In If You Could Only See, Grace, Tiny and Zig are in class when Maya walks in. She starts talking about how she's worried about Miles and Tiny and Zig make fun of her because he's gay. After Maya has her nightmare in class Grace looks worried about her.
