Subject: WB's _Popular_--Romeo Reference
In last night's (October 21) episode of the WB's new tv show Popular, a
bad girl who turns out with some proding to be sort of good calls out to
a jock boy named Josh from the bedroom of a mother of a girlfriend,
"Romeo, O ROmeo, whrefore art thou Romeo." Josh looks back at his two
nerd friends with a smile as he climbs through the window. One of the
nerdy guys says to the other "We'll never have a chance for a girl like
that." The guy later walks out on her as they are about to have sexual
intercourse when the heroine of the show exposes her plot to humiliate a
nerdy girl she has pretended to befriend.
