Dylan's hair cannot withstand the twin perils of sunlight and touch football. (Cute dress on Brenda, though.)

We wish Mrs. T could have used these gorgeous talons to open Steve's jugular for him, but since she didn't, we're just happy we got to see them. Claw on, Kween!

We're definitely not Dylan, though, who's turning into a live-action comic strip character right before our eyes. (And no, not that one.)

Now that we've learned more about her, can we blame Felice for the fact that Donna doesn't know how to hug someone without looking like she's posing for a hand cream ad?

Vivien Leigh (and Donna) got nothing on this wasp-waisted look on Cindy.

Dylan's not your boyfriend anymore, Brenda. When you go over to his house, you have to wear a bra.

Snaps for Brenda and her flawless head-to-toe casual look -- an especially nice change from her goth try-hard look!

Is Dylan shocked to see his mother show up unannounced (again), or that she thinks this tablecloth is okay to wear to his commencement?
