Brandon participates in a teen review committee that provides input to one of Jim's clients, who is building a gigantic new mall. Marcie, the developer's college-age daughter, aggressively pursues Brandon. Brandon is incensed to learn that the project would require the demolition of the Peach Pit. He squares off with Jim, who promises to stand up for Nat's interests. Brandon takes Marcie to the Peach Pit in the hopes of gaining her support, but realizes that she only cares about her father and his business. The gang (except Brenda) tries to stage a rally, but Nat has already agreed to sell. Brandon becomes jaded, and refuses to listen when Jim explains the financial realities associated with adulthood. The deal eventually falls through, allowing Nat to keep the Peach Pit. Music: 'Blue Suede Shoes' by Carl Perkins, 'Don't Get Around Much Anymore' by Nat King Cole.
