In Mercy Street, Alex accuses Emma of being friendly with Rick during an after-school student hangout at The Dot. Emma denies this and proves her dislike of Rick by tripping him when he comes in to attempt to make peace with everyone.
After recovering from his fall, Rick looks up at Emma, enraged. This incites Jay to drag Rick outside and humiliate him before punching him in the stomach. He adds insult to injury by taking off Rick's glasses and crushing them beneath his foot.
- They both made their first appearance in Season 3 of Degrassi: The Next Generation: Jay in Pride (1) and Rick in Whisper to a Scream.
