Question: I wasn't a regular viewer of the show, but there's a question that I really need answered: What does the chant "Donna Martin Graduates" mean? Did Donna do something that threatened her graduation from high school?

Answer: The students were told by the faculty that anyone found to be intoxicated at the Senior Prom would not be allowed to participate in graduation activities. Donna had a little too much champagne at Mel's house and in the limo and got drunk. At the Prom she spent most of the time in the bathroom, being sick. As the gang tried to discreetly usher her to the car, Donna fell and Mrs. Teasly questioned her and realized that she was drunk. "Donna Martin graduates" is what her classmates chanted after a walk-out on their final exams, in protest to the fact that the board was meeting inside to make the final decision of Donna's fate. Big surprise: Donna Martin graduated.

Scared Very Straight - S4-E20

Question: David was fired by the station manager Howard for his continued meth problem and mishaps on the radio, yet Howard was originally the person who gave David the meth and even did it with him sometimes. When David was fired, he just got ticked off and told Howard that the radio station sucked and walked out. Question - of all people, couldn't Howard have at the least been fired as well? And why would David let that opportunity slide?

Answer: I think it's a case of "he said/he said". Howard is the station manager, so his word would hold more weight than David's. If Howard was accused of being David's meth source, Howard could deny it; the school would be much more likely to believe him than David.

Question: How did Steve and Janet end up with the Walsh house? I know that Steve was living there with Brandon once the Walshes moved to Japan, but once Brandon left, did they sell the house to Steve?

Chosen answer: I'm sure something like that happened. Brandon (always being the good and concientious friend) probably passed on the title so Steve could live in the house legally and if anything happened like a fire, would be there to take charge.

Answer: It's typical for TV shows to undergo changes and be retooled after the initial pilot episode. Some characters are deleted while others are added, depending on how producers evaluate what does and doesn't work, how test audiences react, how well the actors work with one another, cast salaries, and so on. The Marianne character was probably dropped for one of those reasons and the Dylan character was added later.
