Can't Hardly Wait

True Colours is the third episode of Season 6 of Degrassi: The Next Generation. It aired on October 6, 2006 in the United States, and on December 5, 2006 in Canada.


Jay goes to an unlikely person to get help for Sean. Ellie catches the attention of the editor after she submits an article for the university paper, but is it just her writing that he likes?

Main Plot

Emma and Peter are in a courthouse and Peter is let off the hook for the illegal street racing.

Jay shows up at Degrassi and convinces Emma to go to Sean's court date. The public defender can't come, so Emma tries to raise money for a good lawyer.

With convincing from both Sean and Manny, Emma finds out that Peter lied about planting drugs in Sean's locker.

At the dance (which is a masquerade), Peter (dressed up as a gorilla) sneaks to the dance, trying not to get caught off house arrest. He gets pushed into a locker by Emma who dumps him & is caught by his mom.

Sub Plot

Ellie is devastated to discover that the first newspaper article that she has written has been rejected.

Eric: "Swapsies? That's so rad."
Manny (about Emma): I'm just worried about my best friend who's being an emotional pingpong ball. Sean. Peter. Peter. Sean.
Emma (to Peter): When you see me in class, don't look at me. When you see me in the halls, don't talk to me.
Manny (to Emma): Look, I know my advice isn't always "Dr. Phil solid" and what's happening to Sean isn't fair, but babe, you got to let him go.
Emma (to Sean): I thought it was the next best thing to actually being with me.
Sean: Nothing could replace the real thing.
