90210: Wide Awake and Dreaming

Annie and Ty spend an increasing amount of time together as the opening night of "Spring Awakening" rapidly approaches. When Harry sees Annie and Ty kissing, he and Debbie worry about how fast Annie and Ty's relationship is progressing. Silver gets help from Dixon with managing backstage, which brings the two closer. Meanwhile, Naomi vows to get her parents back together after they announce they are getting divorced; and Brenda, Kelly and Ryan confront Adrianna about her substance abuse problem, which may give Annie the opportunity to take the lead role in the play.

Episode Quotes
Brenda: If the audience is not standing on their feet at the end of tomorrow night, I will personally kick their asses.

(after seeing Harry and Debbie kiss)Tabitha: Sometimes I ask the Lord to take my sight away.

Naomi: This is all Dad's stuff?
Tracy: You bet it is.
Naomi: What are you doing with it?
Tracy: Giving it to the Malibu mission. So one day soon, your father will step out of his beach house and see a homeless man wearing his tailor-fit Armani, and he will think of me.

Naomi: Hey, what's going on?
Annie: What's going on is I came here tonight fully prepared to have sex for the first time. Here I am at the Roosevelt in Hollywood about to give it up for the first time to some guy that I barely know. This whole world that you guys live in might be fine for the two of you and all of your friends with all of their benefits, but it is definitely not fine with me.

Ryan: The tricky part of teaching is being friendly without becoming their friend.

Brenda: I forgot what it was like to be in high school. You know, the pressure on these kids, and you should have seen Adrianna's mom. How do you do this every single day?
Kelly: Oh, it's not easy, but it's not always quite so "High School Musical." I mean, I try to help them as much as I can, but sometimes I have to remind myself it's okay for these kids to make mistakes. I mean, we did.
Brenda: Oh, I'm aware. I didn't forget everything about high school.
Kelly: Yeah, but sometimes don't you wish you could?

Charles: What's going on, Tracy?
Tracy: Well, let's see. Last time I checked, you left your wife and daughter for a life at the beach house with your longtime whore. Did I leave anything out?
