Mrs. Kwan is walking around the classroom, reading Moby Dick to the class, when Manny looks like she is going to be sick and asks to be excused. Mrs. Kwan tells her that coming to school sick is not a good idea, but Manny interrupts her and says "Please?" She runs out of the room and Emma looks at the closing door.
Manny is sitting on the floor of the open bathroom stall with her face near the toilet, vomiting. She flushes and then wipes her mouth with toilet paper.While Manny is stretching for gymnastics on the stairwell railing, Emma comes up and asks her why she ran out of English so quickly. Manny tells her that nothing is wrong and Emma reminds her that if she is sick, she cannot be in the gymnastics competition. Manny answers this with a smart remark, that Emma is acting like her mother. Emma follows her and tells her that the coach should know, then walks away. Manny stops her and tells her that she is just nervous because the meet means everything to her. At practice, Mrs. Hatzilakos suggests that Manny should show the team how the balance beam is done. She does a perfect routine, with a cartwheel and backbend. The team is impressed.
After practice, in the locker room, Emma compliments Manny on her technique. Hazel walks in while they are talking and says that she is desperate for a tampon. Emma's box is empty, but Manny gives Hazel one of hers, saying that she hasn't used hers "in forever." Emma is surprised at this. Manny blames it on the fact that she had been training hard for the meet. Emma reminds Manny that she was sick earlier and asks her if she is sure it's not something more serious. Manny tells Emma that it is none of her business and leaves the locker room. She runs out of the school and sits on the front bench. She takes out her calendar and sees that she had missed some periods. She looks very worried.
The next day, she sees Craig messing around with Spinner in front of the school. When Craig notices her staring at him, she walks away. She walks into the bathroom after Paige and goes into the stall next to her. She asks Paige how she would know if a guy used a condom. Paige tells her that it is obvious. When she sees the worry on Manny's face, Paige shows concern; Manny says she doesn't think Craig used a condom. Paige comforts her by telling her that she is probably fine, but she should just ask him. She gives her advice: "Remember, next time, ask questions first, get naked later." Manny is worried.
Manny tries to convince herself, and everyone else, that nothing is wrong. She competes on the balance beam for the meet.

He says that he thought she was on the pill because she said it was okay. She said it was okay because it was her first time. He asks her if something is wrong, but she says no. He leaves.
Manny leaves the school, puts headphones on, and starts running. She passes a playground with kids and babies, which does not let her forget about her current situation. She keeps running until she is out of breath. She ends up at Emma's house and tells Spike that she thinks she is pregnant. She takes a pregnancy test and, while waiting for the results, talks to Spike. Manny believes she is stupid for letting this happen. Spike reassures that everyone makes mistakes and that she should learn from it. She asks Manny if she has thought about what she is going to do. Manny says it is too much. Spike offers to go with her to talk to her parents, but Manny says that she can't tell them. Spike says that her mom surprised her and was very supportive. Manny says her parents would kill her or send her away, like they did with her cousin.
Manny is sitting outside the school. Craig comes up to her. She tells she is pretty sure she is pregnant. He says that he had been thinking about it since yesterday and that he wants to keep it and be a family. He gets her excited about it and they discuss what they think the sex of the baby is. Ellie & Paige notice how lovey-dovey Craig & Manny are. Paige talks to Manny, reminding her about cheer practice, but Manny says she can't go. Ellie tells Ashley about Manny and Craig dating again. Paige tells Ashley that she thinks Craig got Manny pregnant.
At lunch, Craig brings Manny a milk and insists that she drink it, even though she already had some. He shows her a baby name book he got and tells her to pick a name without looking. She points to one and says "No. Anyone named Maude will pick their nose and eat glue." Ashley approaches them and sees the book. She announces to everyone that they are pregnant.
Manny is crying in the bathroom stall when Terri & Paige walk in. Terri comments that she is almost jealous of Manny and Paige says she should be fixed for thinking that because Manny is ruining her life. Then Paige talks about something unimportant, making it seem like she doesn't care too much about what happens to Manny. Emma walks in the bathroom and knocks on the stall door. Manny comes out and Emma invites her to come over to her house, and to bring Craig if she wants.
Craig and Manny are at Emma's house. They both make comments about Jack, showing their excitement for their baby. Emma shows Manny one of Spike's baby books and points to the picture of what the baby looks like at that point in the pregnancy. Craig comments on how big she will get while she is pregnant. Manny changes the subject and asks Emma if they can trade mothers. Emma says she can't believe her mom went through all this to have her. Jack starts crying; Craig believes babies are easy, so Emma lets him have some practice while she answers the door. Chris had come over to give Emma a book and they listen on the baby monitor to Craig & Manny taking care of Jack. Emma comes back inside and shows them how to change Jack's diaper. Both Craig and Manny look overwhelmed.
Spinner talks to Craig about his future if they keep the baby. Craig says that he doesn't have a family- he just stays at some guy's house. But Manny and the baby are his. They're for him.
Manny goes to Emma's house and talks to Spike because she couldn't concentrate in class. She asks Spike what being a single mom is like. Spike says it is very hard, especially as a teenager, but there are things that make it worth it, like sticky candy kisses. Manny talks about all these dreams and plans she has for her future and tells Spike that Craig wants her to keep the baby. Spike reminds Manny that Craig might not always be there and that it is ultimately Manny's decision.
Manny goes home and tells her mother she is pregnant and that she can't be a mom yet. They cry together.
Manny goes to Emma's house and tells her that her mother was a lot more understanding than she thought. She says that her mother is driving her to the clinic to have an abortion; Emma cannot believe this. She suggests adoption, but Manny says that she cannot go through giving birth. She begs Emma to understand, but Emma refuses.
Manny meets Craig in the hallway and tells him that she can't go through with it because she is not ready to be a mom. Craig refuses her logic and Emma tries to stop the argument. Craig tells her to butt out, but she tells him that she agrees with his point. She says that if Manny was a stranger, she would be furious, but she is her friend and it is her decision. Craig pleads with them, but Emma stands up for Manny. Craig leaves and Manny thanks Emma for sticking up for her. Emma leaves without saying another word.
Manny and her mother are at the clinic. They ask some questions and the attendant answers all of them. Manny hands in her forms and asks how she will feel after. The attendant tells her as long as she is sure of her decision, and Manny finishes the sentence by saying: "I'll be okay."
Time Stands Still (Season 4, Episodes 7 & 8)After being tossed into a dumpster by Spinner and Jimmy, Rick vandalizes Spinner's car with spray paint, as well as Jay's. While going to class, Rick bumps into Jimmy, who is then asked two trivia questions by Mr. Simpson. After answering both of them correctly, Simpson tells them both that Jimmy is the newest member of the team for "Whack Your Brain," a trivia show, along with Rick, Emma, & Toby; Heather Sinclair (who was supposed to have been the fourth member) had come down with mono. Rick wants to quit the team because of Jimmy, but Emma and Toby convince him to stay. He tries to talk to Mr. Raditch and tell him that Jimmy had been harassing him, but he is not taken seriously and Mr. Raditch dismisses Rick's concerns, although Rick has told him about the issue before. He is told simply to try to make friends with Jimmy and then come back if anything serious happens. Jay & Spinner find their vandalized cars and assume that it had been Rick. While Toby is drinking at the water fountain, Spinner, Jay, & Alex approach him and ask him where Rick is. After Toby refuses to tell them, Jay pushes Toby's head into the fountain, which causes his lip to bleed. When Toby walks into the room where the team is preparing, Simpson asks Toby what happened and Toby blames it on a skateboard accident. Rick & Jimmy argue about who hurt Toby, and Jimmy tells Rick to back off. Rick then tells Jimmy that he has been suffering for weeks and that no one deserves that. Jimmy seems to be affected by Rick's words. While they are leaving practice, Rick is approached and picked on by Spinner, Jay, & Alex. Jimmy defends Rick and the teammates walk away; Rick turns around and crosses his arms, making an X, which proves that he had vandalized the cars. When Toby is at Rick's house, Rick is overjoyed over the events of the day. His mother tells Toby that Rick told her that the four teammates are such good friends that they are practically inseparable. Toby seems confused but goes along with it. Rick is obviously feeling confident about winning Jimmy over. During the trivia show, Rick answers a golf question correctly and it causes them to tie the game. He grabs Emma's hand and holds it for too long; Emma yanks it away. Before the tie breaker, Jimmy congratulates Rick on knowing the answer. Rick asks him why he didn't know the answer, since sports are Jimmy's strong point. He tells Rick that golf isn't really a sport, anyway.
In the bathroom, Spinner & Jay congratulate Rick on tying the game and ask him if he will be the person competing in the tie breaker; Rick says that he will be. They tell Rick that they have no hard feelings over what had happened between them. After Rick leaves, Spinner & Jay discuss their prank. Before competing in the tie breaker, Rick whispers to Emma that he is doing it all for her, which makes her feel uncomfortable. He answers enough of the questions correctly and wins the game for Degrassi. While the crowd is cheering and Rick is standing there, as happy as ever, he is covered in yellow paint and feathers dropped from above. The cheers quickly turn to silence, then to laughter. Rick is mortified. Afterwards, Emma finds and approaches Rick, trying to comfort him. He tries to kiss her very forcefully; she pulls away and tells him that she only pitied him. Rick walks home and, realizing the house is empty, takes out a wooden box and pulls a gun out of it. J.T., Danny, & Toby are sitting at a table.
While J.T. & Danny discuss how funny the prank on Rick was, Toby says that he didn't think it was funny at all. Danny looks up and sees Rick walking back toward the school, still covered in paint and feathers, with his backpack in his hand. Toby goes up to him and tells him that everyone would understand if he left for the day. Rick dismisses Toby's concern and tells him that this was one of the times he really wanted to be there. Mr. Raditch, who finally shows sympathy for Rick, also tells him that he can go home. He walks to where Paige is sitting and reaches for the gun inside his bag. Paige sees him and before he pulls the gun out, she tells hims that she thought the whole thing was sickening. He decides against pulling the gun on her; instead, he apologizes for hurting Terri and leaves the room. In the middle of looking at himself in the bathroom mirror, Spinner & Jay walk in and Rick hides in the first stall. Spinner is about to talk about the prank, but Jay sees the paint from Rick and turns the blame onto Jimmy, and Spinner goes along with it. After hearing this, Rick approaches Jimmy, holding his backpack in his arms. Jimmy asks Rick how he is holding up and says that he has his back if anyone bothers him. Rick replies that Jimmy stabbed him in the back. Rick takes his gun out and points it at Jimmy, who backs away slowly. When Rick turns his head and shuts his eyes to fire the gun, Jimmy runs, but the bullet hits him and he falls to the ground. Most students run from the scene, but Craig walks towards it and sees Jimmy on the floor. Rick then sees Emma with Toby and Sean. He apologizes for kissing Emma. They turn to run from Rick when they see the gun, but he demands that they don't turn away from him. He says that Emma had flirted with him and made him think she cared about him, but it was all just a lie. Sean walks toward Rick and tries to reason with him, telling him that it will just make his life worse. Rick says that it is too late because he already shot someone. He points the gun straight at Emma, but Sean grabs his hand and while they are fighting over it, the gun goes off and they both fall to the floor. The school is under lockdown and, while they are stuck in the classrooms, Paige announces to her class that her mom heard that there was a shooting. Hazel looks over to see Jimmy's empty desk. Ms. Sauve asks to see Hazel in the hallway, where she is told that Jimmy had been shot. Police cars and ambulances surround the school; Jimmy is taken out on a stretcher, wearing an oxygen mask. Spinner tells Jay that he wants to confess and Jay strongly disagrees. Spinner says that Jimmy is his best friend. Then Jay delivers what may be the most powerful line in Degrassi: "Either outcome, I'd say he was your best friend." A newscaster, Rachel Rhodes, is the person who reveals that Rick had died.
Emma's and Ashley & Toby's families are watching the school shooting on the news and Ashley comments how Rick was a freak, which is too much for Toby to handle, so he leaves the room. Emma defends him by telling Ashley that Rick was Toby's friend. A memorial is held for Jimmy, who is in critical condition and his future is not revealed.

J.T. told her that they should celebrate and pulled condoms out of his pocket. Liberty tells him that she has to do something in fifteen minutes, so she can't "celebrate." J.T. tells her that fifteen minutes is more than enough time. He goes to kiss her and she pulls away. J.T. asks if he is doing something wrong. She blames it on the fact that she has a lot of responsibility being student council president, and that he doesn't understand what that means.
Toby is waiting for Liberty at school to start auditions for the morning video announcements. J.T. wants to audition, but Liberty does not think he is a good match for the job. She doesn't think being an entertainer is a smart career path, but then tells him to do what he wants.
Spinner is doing well in school. Darcy asks him for advice; he is more than willing to help her in any subject. She responds by telling him that he is not a good flirt. He suggests that he can help her with English if she helps him flirt. She changes the subject and asks him if he failed last year. He told her that there were problems- his dog got leukemia and all his fur fell out right around exams and he was broken up. She tells him that, along with being bad at flirting, he is a horrible liar.
Toby tells J.T. that he needs to be the man of his relationship. Toby comments that Liberty has been barking orders at J.T., who blames it on her becoming student council president and says that she is just stressed out, and needs de-stressing.
Spinner tries to get Jimmy to talk to him, saying that it is a brand-new year. Jimmy is still unconvinced and says that just because he was allowed to come back to school, it does not change who he is. Spinner tells Jimmy that he has changed, but Jimmy is uninterested and moves quickly down the hall, right past Darcy. Spinner tells her that he was expelled last year because of what happened to Rick. He tells her that he has more than paid for what he did, but no one will even look at him anymore. Darcy invites him to come to a room after school where a bunch of people are meeting up.
Mr. Simpson is very happy with Liberty's job as school president, but she seems stressed and overwhelmed by the job.

She tries to resist but, seeing J.T.'s hurt expression, tells him her work can wait. She tells him that he is really great and he responds by saying he knows that.
After school, Spinner goes to the classroom that Darcy had invited him to and sees a group of people sitting on chairs in a circle. Darcy gets up and introduces him to everybody.

Emma comments on how long the bus took and Liberty brags about her boyfriend having a car. J.T. and Toby walk a few feet away and J.T. mentions how he has been giving Liberty driving lessons and that she is handy at the stick shift. Toby says, in a semi-loud voice, that he has heard enough of J.T. and Liberty's sex life. Liberty stares at J.T., who tries to change the subject and compliment Paige on how fast she got his order. Paige jokes and tells him that he owes her $400. Liberty gets angry and pours the soda down J.T.'s pants.
J.T. is following Liberty in his car and trying to convince her to get in instead of walking. He asks her that if she will take it as an apology if he gives her a ride. She gets in the car. He apologized and tells her he shouldn't have made those jokes to Toby. She calls him an immature clown. He wants her to respect him and maybe then they can make some choices. She tells him that they did make a choice over the summer when they used the extra large condom and it slipped off. She tells him that she is pregnant and he crashes the car right into the bus stop outside of Degrassi.
Everyone rushes to see if J.T. and Liberty are all right. Liberty tells Ms. Hatzilakos that a dog ran onto the road and J.T. swerved. She tells them to go inside while she talks to the police.
Simpson is teaching his class, but the students get distracted when they see J.T. and Liberty talking to the police in the hallway. They walk into class and J.T. asks Liberty how long she has known about the pregnancy. She admits that she has known about it for three months. She says that she doesn't want to be pregnant. She refuses to even think about an abortion. He asks if she is sure of the pregnancy and she remarks that if he wants proof, he should go buy a pregnancy test. He can't believe she had not done one, but she said that a woman just knows because they are many signs, such as frequent urination. She stands up to ask Mr. Simpson to go to the bathroom and J.T. stares at her stomach.
Spinner sits at a table in the cafeteria and Darcy walks over to him. She sits down and asks him if he liked the club. He replied that it was Christian and not really his thing. She surprises him with some things that she is interested in. He asks her out for coffee at the Dot. She agrees.J.T. is at the mall and goes into the pharmacy to get a pregnancy test. There is a father carrying his baby right next to him and he gets uncomfortable. He looks uncomfortable at the register, too; he sees a help wanted sign on the counter.
J.T. is waiting outside the bathroom in Liberty's house. Danny comes up to him and asks if she is in there again. He tells J.T. to get comfortable because she is going to be a while; she is probably all "bunged up." J.T. calls Danny an ignorant little puke and says that Danny knows nothing about Liberty and then tells him to get lost. Danny walks away, saying that J.T. has issues. Liberty walks out of the bathroom, holding the test up. J.T. asks if it is positive and Liberty nods.
J.T. tries to audition for the video announcements, but he was very nervous and kept fumbling over his words. He quickly left the room. Liberty followed him into the hallway. Liberty reminds him that entertainment is not a practical career path; J.T. tells her to stop controlling him. He tells Liberty she needs to get checked out by a doctor, but she says that she will take care of everything.
Toby is playing with a remote-control car at his house. J.T. comes over and tells him that Liberty is pregnant. Toby is surprised. He tries to help J.T. by giving him advice on what to do, but J.T. says that there is a bigger problem. Toby asks what could be bigger than Liberty being pregnant; J.T. says "Liberty." He feels like she treats him like crap. Toby tells him to talk to her, but J.T. says that that isn't working.
Darcy walks into the Dot and Spinner is already there waiting for her. She hands him a mixed CD with artists that surprise Spinner. She tells him to tell her something about himself that she wouldn't expect. He tells her that he was Little Mr. Handsome from when he was four to six, but guesses he got ugly after that. Jimmy comes up and warns Darcy that Spinner is probably not telling the truth and she should watch out for Spinner because he tends to get people shot.
J.T. wants to do the morning announcements badly, but Liberty is very much against it. He complains that she used to like the fact that he made jokes, but she doesn't anymore.
