90210 (2008–2013): Season 3, Episode 21 - The Prom Before the Storm - full transcript

As the gang gears up for prom, Dixon and Annie find out some devastating news about their futures, while Ivy learns that Raj's health has taken a turn for the worse. While Silver is in the hospital, Adrianna tries to rekindle her romance with Navid. Meanwhile, Naomi and Max's relationship is tested to the limit.

Previously on 90210:

I found some articles about suicide

under your desk blotter.

Are you really thinking
about suicide?

I have Alzheimer's disease, Annie.

I want you to have this.

"My dear Annie.
I feel so fortunate to have met you."


I wanted to schedule
my post-chemo check-up.

I think I'm ready now.

- I need your help.
- What's going on?

It's Silver, she hasn't been
acting like herself lately.

I'm worried. I just don't understand
why this had to happen to her.

Anyone would need a drink

and a friend to talk to after
what you've been through.



- Ohh.
- I, um...

Did you sleep here?

I guess I fell asleep.

How much did I drink last night?

You were pretty upset.

Silver's in the hospital.
Was that last night?

Yeah, that was last night.

I remember dropping her off
and then you driving me home.

And then I remember drinking,

but then I don't even remember
going to sleep.

I blacked out.
That's never happened before.

I don't even remember going to bed
last night. I don't remember a thing.

You don't remember anything?

You don't remember anything.

- What do you mean?
- I can't believe this.

We kissed.

We kissed? I kissed you?

Yes. You kissed me and held me.

Told me you still loved me.

What the hell's wrong with me?

Navid, don't be upset.

How could I not be upset, Ade?
I cheated on Silver.

Well, that's because
you don't really love Silver.

That's what you said last night.

What, I said that l...?

Look, you have to go now.

Will you call me later?

Just go, Ade. Please?

It doesn't feel real, you know?

Feels like I'm in a movie
or a dream or something.

Yeah, I've never been
to a funeral before.

It's like she can't really be gone,
you know?

I keep thinking I'm gonna
turn around and see her alive.

Marla would have loved
those flowers.

Yes, peonies
were my mother's favourite.


I'm Brooke Templeton,
Marla's daughter.

Well, I'm Annie.
This is my boyfriend, Liam.

- I'm sorry for your loss.
- Thank you.

How did you know my mother?

I had been working for her
for the past few weeks.

Just cleaning, organising,
running errands, that kind of stuff.

She was an amazing woman.

And it was an honour
to have known her,

even for as brief a time as I did.

She was quite a woman.

Okay, everybody, um,
the service is about to begin.

Nice to meet you both.

You too.

Hey, Dixon, wait up.

Heh. Hey, Harper.

Navid told me what's going on
with Silver.

I hear you're helping out
while she's in the hospital.

Collecting her homework, doing
Blaze stuff. Whatever she needs.

Then that makes you the new co-chair
of the prom committee.

Congratulations. Silver and I have
been working on it for months, but...

Prom committee?

- I don't know, Harper.
- You do wanna help Silver, right?

Right, but what do I know
about planning a prom?

Don't worry, I've planned three dances
a year for the last four years.

I know what I'm doing.
And it's basically already done.

Silver was in charge of party supplies
and general ambiance.

So are you going to help a friend in
need or are you going to flake out?

I'm, heh, gonna help.

Mm! This is going to be
the best prom ever.

Now, tuck in your shirt.
We have an image to project.

You think I can't keep my hands off
you now, wait until I get you that tux.

I'm actually excited about it.

I mean, it's funny. Up till now
I've spent every prom night

playing "World of Warcraft"
with Allen and Gilbert.

Oh, well, unlike those prom nights
at the end of this one you'll be naked.

You'd be surprised, "World of Warcraft"
makes you do some crazy things.

Oh, really. Mmm.

Miss Clark, looking forward
to reading your final paper

on the French Revolution tomorrow.

Right, the French Revolution.
I'm all over it.

I hope so.
I'm sure I don't have to remind you

how close you are
to failing my class.

What, failing? Since when?

You got a D-minus on your midterm
and turned your oral presentation

on ancient Egypt
into a lesson on moisturizing.

You need to do really well
on this paper

or I'll be seeing you
in summer school.

Oh, my God, Max,
what am I gonna do?

I cannot write a ten-page paper
in one night.

If I fail his class I'm not gonna
graduate. I'm not gonna go to CU.

Naomi, slow down.
Look, when we were in Cabo

you learned the basics of calculus
in one afternoon.

You can write this paper.

- Think so?
- Of course I do.

I mean, it may take all night,

but we both know you do some
of your best work after midnight.

That's true.

You're here.


You're the best boyfriend.

- Hey.
- Hey.

Oh, you poor thing.
I brought you some flowers.


I'll put them in a vase.

What are you doing here?
You have to leave.

- Not until we talk.
- Just go, Ade.

Hey, how we feeling today?

Okay, a bit woozy.

- But I'm better.
- Good.

Can we talk in private
for a moment?

- Yeah.
- It's okay, you can stay.

- They're like family.
- Okay.

Well, the good news
is you can go home today.

The not-so-good news is that I got
the results back from your blood test.

And there was no trace of medication
in your system.

What does that mean?
The medication stopped working?

No, it means
you haven't been taking it.

Yes, I have.

Silver, as you know it's crucial

for people to be consistent
with their medication.

And I have been.
I've been taking my pills every day.

I can go home right now
and bring them back and show you.

- That won't be necessary.
- I wanna show you.

Fine. We have an appointment
day after tomorrow.

- You can bring them with you then.
- Okay, I will.

Now, be aware
you're gonna be a bit off-balance

and a little out of it for a few days.

You could even suffer
a little paranoia

until the new medication
fully takes effect.

So just take it easy.
Get a lot of sleep.

And most importantly,
take your pills.

I will. I have been.

I'll start putting through the paperwork
so we can get you out of here.

- Thank you.
- Mm-hm.

Well, that's good news.

Great news.

Yeah. Great.

Harper, look, I said
I'm gonna be there, okay?

No, no, I said I promise.
I'm not gonna say that.

No, I'm not gonna...

Okay, I, uh...

I super-duper swear promise.

All right, bye.

- So you and Harper having fun?
- Oh, she's the best.

Hey, Annie, Dixon, um, I need
to talk to you about something.

What's up, Mama?

There's no easy way to say this,

but your dad and I
have been trying to figure it out

and we have realised
that we cannot afford

to send you to private schools.

We can only afford
state schools right now.

And we are so proud
of the both of you.

I mean, Carnegie Mellon
and Pepperdine are amazing schools.

And you both deserve to go.

But you just can't afford to send us?

- It's okay, Mom.
- Yeah, yeah, yeah, we'll figure it out.

I'm sorry to let you down.

No. No, seriously, Mom,
don't worry about it, okay?

We'll be fine.

This thing on?

Mr. Kher, would you like
to make a comment for the record?

Yeah, waiting for test results sucks.

Look, it's gonna be okay. Okay?

Hey, Raj.

Hi, Dr. Harris. How's it going?

This is my girlfriend, Ivy.

- Hey.
- How are you?

Yeah, I'm okay, I guess.

Well, Raj, I'm afraid your CLL was
resistant to that last round of chemo.

And your platelet count
is also very low,

which we would classify as stage 4.

That means
the cancer's progressed.

- Okay.
- That leaves us with a few options.

But while we're exploring those,
I'd like another round of chemo.

Try a single agent
on a daily schedule.

- Every day?
- For a month.

Then we'll see where we're at.

I'm sorry, Raj.

I know it's not what
you wanted to hear.

Okay, got everything we need
for an all-nighter.

Energy drinks, candy bars
and Bubble Wrap.

- Bubble Wrap?
- Mm-hm.

It's amazing how refreshing it is
to pop Bubble Wrap

around 3:00 in the morning.

It's like smelling salts for the ears.
How's the paper coming?

It's not, but check this out,
remember those photos

we took in the hotel room in Cabo?

Of course I do. What are you up to?

Okay, in this one I look fabulous
as usual, but you're blinking.

I have sensitive eyes.

In this one you look good,
and I'm laughing at a text.

Now watch.

Ha! Voil?, I'm totally
geeking out over this.

You must be rubbing off on me.

Well, that is very cool.

You really need to start writing.

Ugh, I know, I know.
I'm such a procrastinator.

How am I supposed
to write ten pages?

Don't think of it as a ten-page paper.

Think of it as ten one-page papers.

Um, that sounds worse.

Think of it as half a 20-page paper,
or just an eighth of an 80-page paper.

Or alternatively
as 40 quarter-page papers...

- Will you just shut up?
- If you start writing.

- Oh!
- Okay.

All right, here we go.

Black lights? Lasers?
There has to be some kind of mistake.

We're supposed to be picking up
supplies for a prom.

It's a formal.

Yeah, why would we need
all of this stuff?

That's what I asked the girl
who ordered it, Erin Silver.

She was very clear about
what she wanted and very excited.

Silver must've ordered this
while she was manic.

I feel a migraine coming on,

like the one I got before
sophomore winter ball.

Oh, okay, just relax, Harper.
Heh, heh. Um...

We'll make this work.
Everything will be okay.

- Help me out?
- You got it.

You can do it, champ.

- That feels good.
- Yeah?

Can you come forward
just a little bit?

Mmm. And down.

- And down just a little bit.
- Okay.

Hey, hey, hey. No.

Don't you trick me
with your feminine wiles.

- Come on, back to work, champ.
- Boo.

What are you on?
Page four, that's good.

Yeah, just 12 half-page
papers to go.

There you go.

Knock, knock.

In the bathroom.

Ahh. So, what do you think?

I think you look like you again.

Yeah? Well, I'm starting to feel
like me again.

So thank God for that.

What's in the bag?

I come bearing gifts.

What? You...

- You're so sweet.
- Come on, open it up.

- All right, thank you.
- You're welcome.

Oh, ha-ha-ha!

Legally Blonde
and red velvet cupcakes.

It's embarrassing
how happy this makes me.

Your secret's safe with me.

Well, that goes to show
what kind of film student I am.

So you wanna watch the movie
and eat some cupcakes?

Um, you know, I actually have to run.
I just wanted to drop that stuff off.

- Oh, okay.
- But I'll call you later and check in.

- Sounds good.
- Bye.

Thanks again.


- It's great.
- You're not just saying that?

No, I'm not,
you make some good arguments

and you back them up
with solid research, it's an A paper.

- Then I did it.
- Yeah, you did it.

Maybe I'm the one
who should be going to Cal Tech.

My mind is saying "Jump his bones,"
but my body is saying "Crash."

Make it up to you after prom?

Go crash, you earned it.

- Okay.
- Okay.

- Hey.
- Hey.

Oh, you can help me out.
I can't figure out what dress to wear.

All right, now,
this one is fabulous, obviously.

And it's really like a prom dress,
you know, in a good way,

but it doesn't go with the necklace.

And this one,
it's not quite as fabulous,

but it goes a lot better
with the necklace

and I really wanna wear
the necklace.

So, what do you think?

I'm a dude and I'm your brother.
I have no opinion.

You're right, fair enough.

Can I talk to you
about something else though?

- Sure.
- Cool.

Okay, so I've been thinking if next year
I go to a community college,

Mom and Dad can afford
to send you to Carnegie Mellon.

- No, no, Dixon.
- Annie, look, it's cool, all right?

You've been talking
about Carnegie Mellon for years.

And I know
how much it means to you.

And I could be happy
at a community college.

But you were so excited
when you got into Pepperdine.

Yeah, I know, but, like, who knows?

Next year maybe things
will be different and I can transfer.

I don't know.
Dixon, it really doesn't seem fair.

Hey, it's okay.

Are you sure about this?

Yeah, I am.

Thank you.

You're not gonna start crying now,
are you?

Oh, shut up.

Ha, ha, I'll see you at prom.

Okay, so you should probably drink
plenty of fluids

and keep your electrolytes up.

Oh, you care about my electrolytes.

Of course I care
about your electrolytes.

- I love your electrolytes.
- Thank you.

Okay, so the phone is by your bed
if you need to call me for any reason.

Know where my phone is.

Don't hesitate to call me
for anything. I'm serious.

Would you go to prom already?
Go, go.

I'm going, I'm going.

- Maybe I shouldn't go.
- We talked about this, Navid.

You're not gonna miss
your senior prom. It's not an option.

Well, I'm gonna miss you.

You can stare at a picture of me
on your phone.

- You can dance with it, you can kiss it.
- Okay. Oh, uh...

I almost forgot, your pills.

Promise me
you won't forget to take these.

I won't.

Want me to set an alarm?
Because I can do that.

I don't need an alarm. Thanks, Dad.

Ha, ha.

- Hey, Navid.
- Yeah.

Did you get rid of
my old bottle of pills?

No, aren't you supposed
to drop them off at Dr. Landale's?

Yeah, but they're not in here.

Well, maybe you threw them away.

Uh... No, I didn't.

In fact, I just saw them in here
last night when I was dyeing my hair.

- You sure?
- Positive.

No one's been in here since then
except for you, me and Adrianna.


There's no reason Adrianna would've
thrown out my pills, is there?



Oh, my God. She never forgave me.

What are you talking about?

Adrianna. l...
She messed with my pills.

How could she have done that?

She must've switched them out
for a placebo or something.

Of course, that's why there was
no trace of them in my system.

Adrianna did this.

Silver, look, I know that you
and Ade have had your problems,

but there's no way that
she would do something like that.

She was the last one in here.

The doctor said that you might still
experience episodes of paranoia

until your medicine totally kicks in.

Hey, it's been a long couple of days.

I really just think you need
some more time to relax, okay?

Just get some more rest.

Yeah, okay.

It's weird though. I...


You're right, you're right.
I'm just being paranoid.

Let me tuck you in.

You look so cute.

I won't be long.

- Have fun.
- I will.


Here we are.

- You look great.
- Thank you.

I can't believe
we're at our senior prom.

When did we get so old?

Oh, please, we're still young.
We're still hot.

We're gonna wreck this party.

Oh, my God.

Whoa, this is crazy.

Whoa, are we in the right place?

We must be, there's Dixon.

So, what do you think?

I think it's kind of like a bad acid trip.

Kill me now.

- Shall we dance? Come on.
- Yeah.

Would you like a drink?

Thank you.

- Cheers.
- There she is.

Hey, Ivy, is it true you were chosen
for the Hurley team?

Yeah, it's really...
It's not that big of a deal.

Are you kidding? You'll probably be
on magazine covers and stuff.

- Surf all over the world.
- You're gonna be so famous.

You're dating a rock star, dude.
She's going places.

Could we take a picture with you?

Yeah, sure. Why not?

Okay, awesome.

One, two, smile...

- Oh, so cute.
- Thank you.

Thank you so much.
I'm so excited for you.

- Congratulations again.
- Bye.

Dixon. Dixon.

- Dixon.
- Harper, I'm right here, okay? What?

- Have you been in the bathroom?
- No.

We have to do something,
it's like Sodom and Gomorrah there.

Smoking and drinking and all kinds
of inappropriate inter-gender contact.

We could get sued.
We could get arrested.

- Hey, Harper.
- None of this was my idea.

All right, can I talk to Dixon
for a second, alone?

Sure, come and meet me in the girl's
bathroom when you're done.


- What's up?
- I have some good news for you.

Okay, well, let's hear it.

You are going to Pepperdine
next year.

No, Annie,
look, I meant what I said.

And I am going to Carnegie Mellon.

Uh, wait, how?

I sold Marla's necklace. You would
not believe what it was worth.

Oh, my God, Annie. What...?

But it meant so much to you.

Yeah, well, so do you.

And I am sure
that Marla would approve.

Wow, I'm blown away.

Come here.

You're not gonna start crying,
are you?

Okay, okay. Come on.

- Hey, guys, guess what.
- What?

I'm going to Pepperdine.
I'm going to Pepperdine.

All right, man.
That's what you wanted.

That's awesome.

Hey, handsome.

How are you?

I'm okay.

- Do you wanna dance?
- No, I don't wanna dance.

Can you just leave me alone, Ade?

Are we ever gonna talk
about what happened?

I don't even remember
what happened.

I'll remind you. We kissed.

- And you told me you loved me.
- Pfft.

- I highly doubt that, Ade.
- It's true.

Navid, you have to talk to me.

After everything we did the other night,
everything you said.

I don't know
what I said the other night.

I don't care what I said.

I know what I feel
and I can tell you, Ade,

from the bottom of my heart
that I do not love you.

I love Silver.

Just leave me the hell alone.

This bow tie's throwing me off, man.

Uh-oh, here comes
the old ball and chain.


Okay. Um, I've been looking
for you everywhere.

- Are you drunk?
- Getting there.

Okay, why don't you come back
inside with me?

No. I'm good here with my boys.

- This is, uh...
- Pete.

- Sully.
- Pete and Sully.

Right. Okay, well,
then have fun with Pete and Sully.

If at any point you
actually wanna come inside

and dance with your girlfriend
you let me know.

Ivy, wait. We can dance right here.

Haven't you ever seen
the Indian guy moonwalk?

Excuse me, okay, okay.
Everybody, everybody.

All right, all right, all right.

Can I have
everybody's attention, please?

First and foremost, I wanna
thank you all for coming out tonight.

And welcome to the future.


Well, guys, your votes are in.

And now it is time for us to crown
this year's prom king and queen.

And now your West Beverly Hills
High School senior prom queen is...

Naomi Clark.


And the prom king is...

Teddy Montgomery.

Now, would either one of you guys
like to have a few words?

Thank you, thank you so much.
This is an honour, if not a surprise.

Four years ago, my father tried to
talk me into going to a private school.

But I said no, because I wanted to be
at a school where I was truly needed.

And of course I didn't want to wear
those god-awful plaid skirts.

But anyway, it has been my privilege
to lead you for the last four years.

So tonight I would like you all to know
that I love each and every one of you

just as much as you love me.


A man of very few words,
ladies and gentlemen.

Now, will the king and queen
make their way to the dance floor

for their coronation dance?


Congratulations, Naomi.
You make a beautiful queen.

Right back at you.

It's been a crazy year, huh?

Yes, it has.
I mean, look at our prom dates.

I'm with the nerdiest guy in our class.
And you're dating a dude.


But we somehow managed to still be
the most popular kids in school.

Go figure, huh?

Hey, Your Highness,
you mind if I cut in?

I never danced
with a prom queen before.

She's all yours.

So will you dance with me?

Who am I to refuse the king?

Hey, congrats.


Congratulations, Naomi.

Prom queen. It is quite an honour.
Not that I'm surprised.

You'll be happy to know
that instead of spending the day

before prom in a spa,
I wrote my paper.

- How's that for a surprise?
- I read it this afternoon.

And in fact I was surprised.
It's definitely an A paper.


Which is how I know
you didn't write it.

What are you talking about?

The paper was well written, incisive,

And there's no way you wrote it.

What are you saying, I cheated?

I stayed up all night writing that paper
and I wrote every single word.

- I can't believe you think that.
- You know what?

We'll discuss this
at a more appropriate time

with Principal Nowack.

Go on, have fun tonight.

Because I don't think you're gonna
be having fun on graduation day.

Ivy, I've been looking all over for you.

I want you to meet somebody.
This is Kristi.

- Hi.
- Hi.

Kristi is an actress
and she's from Ohio.

And, yeah, she's just working as
a waitress until she gets her big break.

Well, you sure seem to know
quite a lot about Kristi.

Yeah, well, um, I was thinking

that maybe the three of us
could get out of here,

get a hotel room,
maybe have some fun.

You want the three of us
to go have some fun?

Yeah. Well, I'm dying.

I've gotta live every moment
to the fullest.

Check off that bucket list.

You know what, Raj? You are...

You are an ass, man.

What are you doing here?
What's wrong?

- I have to tell you something.
- Okay.

I cannot keep it from you any longer.
It's tearing me up inside.

What? What is it?

The other night when you were
at the hospital, I drove Navid home.

I'm so sorry, Silver.

He kissed me.
I pushed him away right away.

What are you talking about?
That can't be true.

He cheated on me
and he tried to cheat on you.

I can't believe it.

I'm so sorry, Silver. I just...

I had to tell you.

Do you hate me?

No, I don't hate you.
You didn't do anything.

I hate Navid.

What a night! You won prom queen.

And after four years of
"will they, won't they,"

Allen and Alex might finally do it.

They're like the Bella and Edward
of the geek set.

Are you okay?

No. Mr. Philips just accused me
of cheating on my history paper.

It's just people like him underestimate
people like me

because we're insanely
beautiful or...

What? What's the matter?

I may have made a few changes
to your paper after you went to sleep.

You said you were gonna
proofread it for grammar and spelling.

I did and I also cleaned up
the sentence structure

and I polished a few of the ideas.

And I maybe wrote
a new thesis statement.

Max. Why would you do that?
You said my paper was great.

It was.
Hey, it was great, it was all there.

It was just a little rough
and I was worried

that it wasn't going to be good
enough for you to pass his class.

And maybe I overdid it a bit.

- Hey, I'm sorry.
- I can't believe you did this.

I know how much it means for you
to go to CU.

I didn't wanna take any chances.

Threw a hell of a party,
huh, Harper?

People are having a good time,
aren't they?

I'm sorry
for being such a raging bitch.

On the bright side, I didn't get shingles
like I did after freshman turnabout.

Can I ask you a question?

Why do you volunteer
for the dance committee

if it turns you
into such a stress case?

I guess...

I guess maybe being on the dance
committee gives me an excuse

to actually come to the dance.

The truth is not once in four years
has anyone ever asked me.

Hey, um, wanna go dance?

- Really?
- Yeah, come on.

Whoa. Ha, ha.

That's cool.


I'm sorry.

You know what, Raj? Not okay.

All right? You cannot do that.

- You cannot treat me like that.
- I know.

And yes, yes, you got some
horrible news from the doctor.

Okay, I understand that.

But that does not give you
the right to be a jackass.

You're right, I'm a jackass.

I'm no good for you.

What? Okay, I get it.

Is this your way of trying
to scare me off or something?

- What?
- Yeah, Raj, you know what?

No, that's not gonna work, all right?

I don't scare that easy
so you might as well just stop trying.

Look, Ivy,
you are wasting your time with me.

You have an incredible future.

You have your whole life ahead of you,
surfing, travelling the world.

I cannot let you sacrifice that
for what is literally

- Raj, stop that.
- a dead-end relationship.

I'm not gonna stop it.

I'm dying, Ivy.

If you stay with me
you're gonna watch me wither away.

- It only gets worse from here.
- And you don't think I know that, Raj?

What do you take me for? Some sort
of superficial bitch or something?

Okay, I want to be with you, I do.
I wanna be with you for all of it.

For the good and the bad
and I wanna be there,

you know, until the end
if that's what it comes down to.

Okay? I mean, I...

I'm in love with you.

And I couldn't leave you at this point
even if I wanted to.

Dixon, come on.
It's nothing to be ashamed of.

We just wanna know how long
have you and Harper been a couple?

You know what, guys?
Seriously, you can bite me.

Take it from me,
it's a lot easier once you come out.

Have you brought her home
to Deb yet?

Navid, please help me
out here. Please.

I think she's perfect for you.

You guys really suck.
I'm so glad I'm graduating.

Is that Silver?

What's she doing here?

Hey, what's going on?

Is it true?

- What?
- You know what.

Ade told me what happened.
I wanna hear it from you.

Did you kiss her?

I don't know. I don't know what I did.

I can't remember.
I was drinking and...

You can't remember?

Silver, hey, I swear...

I never wanna see you again.

So wait, who told you this?

You know, just a couple of people

saying you and Harper
were all over each other.

This is a nightmare.

It was just one dance,
I felt sorry for her.

- So you're not really dating?
- No.

- Hey, what's going on?
- Is everything okay?

Everything's fine.
Why don't you have a seat?

This is Mr. Schwartz.
He's Marla Templeton's attorney.


I represent the estate
of Marla Templeton.

My role is to carry out her wishes
as expressed in her will.

Marla has decided to leave
her entire estate to you, Annie.


Did you really mean what you said,

about staying with me until the end?

Yeah, of course I did.

Then marry me.

Raj, come on,
don't joke around like that.

I'm serious.

I wanna spend the rest of my life
with you.

Will you marry me?
