In a classroom, Hot Teacher (who, like all of the male stars on this show, is not that hot) cracks a joke about Hannah looking thirty. Get it? Because Andrea was like 42 when the original show aired? It would be funnier if the actress playing Hannah actually looked old but I think she's the youngest looking of all the actresses playing alleged teens. Anyway, Hot Teacher tries to get everyone to welcome Annie, and we meet Obnoxious George the Jock and Queen Bee Naomi. Hot Teacher, Mr. Matthews, and Naomi have quite the flirtatious vibe going, if you ask me. Speaking of looking thirty, Naomi looks like she's on the downward slope of her fertile years, if you get my drift. I guess that will make it less awkward when she inevitably hooks up with Mr. Matthews. Naomi is assigned to show Annie around, and Mr. Matthews reminds Naomi that she owes him a paper by tomorrow, or she gets an F. Also, Annie is from Wichita, Kansas.
Harry (the dad/principal) is looking at a photo of a young him with a young... Kelly Taylor! Yay! So Harry went to West Bev back in the day but he must have been one of those background people because we never saw him before. It kind of messes with the canon that Rob Estes was on Melrose Place for a while but then again, who cares? Jennie Garth looks awesome, and Kelly is now a guidance counselor at the school.
After class, Annie tells Naomi that they don't have to worry about being Bev Buddies or anything and manages to win Naomi over by complaining about Mr. Matthews. Naomi says she hasn't had time to read A Tale of Two Cities since she has her "not-so-sweet-sixteen party" this Friday. They're interrupted by Ethan, who Annie is surprised to learn is Naomi's boyfriend. And Naomi was not the chick polishing his knob in the parking lot that morning. Annie and Ethan admit that they already know each other, since their grandmothers are friends. Ethan ends the awkwardness by calling over a chick named Adrianna, who is the lead in the school's musical, Spring Awakening. Annie babbles hopelessly about how she was the lead in her musical back home, and we're treated to a flashback of Annie singing "Major-General's Song" from The Pirates of Penzance which always reminds me of Mad About You when Paul had to direct his parents' senior center musical and Burt couldn't remember the words. Anyway, Adrianna manages to be bitchy to Annie and we crash to the credits.
