In the shock of death and loss, everyone at Degrassi reels with grief as they try to understand what kind of memorial their friend would have wanted and whether the dead's secrets should be kept secret.
This episode starts at J.T.'s emotional funeral. In shock over his death, the grief-stricken students plan to throw a memorial at Degrassi to best honor their friend. But even with their friend gone, a secret is still lingering about J.T's feelings about Liberty. Toby must decide if the secret is better left unsaid or if needs to be revealed. Mia, Toby, and Liberty go to J.T.'s locker and then Mia starts to grab everything and puts them in her bag . Liberty and Toby are curious as to why Mia was grabbing everything. Mia then tells Liberty that she basically doesn't care about J.T., that she didn't even shed a tear at his funeral, and she told her what J.T. called her behind her back. Liberty walks away mad. Then Toby grabs everything from Mia's bag and places it back into the locker. Later on, Toby grows closer to Liberty, but Manny tells him to break it off because he knows how J.T felt about Liberty. At the memorial, Mia asks Toby to play the video she wanted to play but then Toby tells Mia that J.T loved Liberty and was going to tell her when he got stabbed. Liberty overhears and allows Mia to play the video. At J.T's memorial Liberty finally breaks down and cries. At the end of the episode Mia, Liberty, and Toby clean out J.T.'s locker together..
- Mia: "J.T. died Friday night, and I didn't get a chance to say goodbye to him. You have no idea how difficult this is.:
Liberty: "Excuse me, I think I do! I'm just as sad as you are!"
Mia: "Really? You could have fooled me. I haven't seen you shed a single tear."
Toby: "Mia, stop it!"
Mia: "You're a robot, Liberty. A walking, talking computer."
- Danny: "If I didn't know any better, I'd think something was going down between you and my sister."
Toby: "What? No! That's crazy talk."
Danny: "Good, 'cause if not Danny's gonna have to choke a dude. Does Danny have to choke a dude, Toby?"
Toby: "Relax, man. We're just friends."
- Liberty: "Toby, do you like me?"
Toby: "Yeah, a lot actually."
Liberty: "Well, I like you too. Problem solved."
- Jimmy: "If you're lucky enough to find someone you love, who loves you back, it's a gift. You know what I'm saying."
Ellie: "You're a wise man, Jimmy Brooks."
Jimmy: "Don't forget good looking."
