Beverly Hills, 90210: Pilot

Quad. Marianne is eating lunch all by herself, for this...this is the life she has chosen. And also because she's a gross eater. Seriously, she's chowing sushi with her mouth open. Marianne: whatever is wrong with your lips, please deal with it before you spatter the lens with masticated tuna roll. ...Whoa, I just recognized her as Tony's girlfriend Valentina on The Sopranos. Yeah, she...never did deal with her lips. ["Well, what she really did was inflate them post-HotC, and then continue pumping them up, apparently on a near daily basis, and it's gross." -- Wing Chun] Anyway, Brandon approaches her. Awkward flirting. Culture clash between sushi and PB&J. Brandon asks Marianne out for Saturday. She accepts. The Piano Of What's With The Wicca-Wear, Lipsey Russell is happy for them.

From the quad, Brandon barges into the newspaper office to ask Ohhhhhndrea if she knows of any nice places to go for dinner. Brandon, it's Ohhhhhndrea. She's wearing a striped t-shirt Bea Arthur rejected as too grandmotherly. Ask someone who doesn't dress like the deleted scenes from Grey Gardens. Not that Brandon gets an answer anyway, since Ohhhhhndrea demands to know where the toxic waste story is; she's "holding page one!" Brandon's on it, but Ohhhhhndrea cramps, "Tomorrow, or I do it myself. It's my reputation on the line!" Brandon's all, fine, God. Then he asks why she didn't go to Marianne's party. Ohhhhhndrea naturally replies that trifles such as parties won't get her into the Ivy League. Brandon is like, "So, you have no life, then," and Ohhhhhndrea snorts that she doesn't have time for a life, what with the ten hours of community service she does a week. Brandon's like, "Whatevs. Later," and as he's leaving, Ohhhhhndrea eagerly pipes up with a restaurant in Malibu. "Very romantic," she adds, and fixes him with a look of naked yearning that frankly is a little uncomfortable to watch. Behind her on the wall, her Amelia Earhart poster is like, "It's called 'a vibrator,' Zuckerman." "Is she special?" Ohhhhhndrea blurts. Brandon doesn't know; she could be. He takes off, and Ohhhhhndrea starts ripping up her page-one layout all Mad Love.

Brenda puts on makeup. Enter Cindy to ask her a bunch of questions about where she's going and who with and will parents be home; Brenda tries to play the "but nobody else has a curfew" card, but Cindy isn't picking it up. Brenda runs out to the car in her comparatively cute black sequined minidress and spike heels.
