The friendship between Spinner and Terri began sometime prior to the start of the series. The two fell into the popular crowd in high school and often hungout at the same parties and after school events. In grade 8, they had developed feelings for eachother, but Terri was too self-concious of her weight to act on her feelings, giving the jealous Paige a way to ruin her chances and get Spinner to herself. When Terri began a relationship with Rick Murray, Spinner was unhappy with the way he treated her. When he tried to help her, Terri became angry with him. There friendship was mended after Terri ended her relationship with Rick, but was torn again when she took Rick back. After Rick put Terri into a coma, Spinner attacked him, for what he did to his friend. Spinner also visted Terri in the hospital, and it is believed that they remained friends after she transfered schools.
In Eye of the Beholder, Terri is insecure about her weight, but Spinner shows an interest in her by asking her for her notes, which he clearly does not need. Spinner asks Terri to the school dance, she makes up an excuse that she has to do chores. While drunk, Terri sees Spinner and dances with him wildly, twirling around in circles and pumping her fists while drunkenly telling him her true feelings (after being convinced by Paige Michalchuk, who liked Spinner, that she should drink). Terri finally becomes dizzy and falls to the ground, then runs to the washroom and vomits. The next day, she finds out that Spinner was turned off because of her behavior the previous night.
