Does Rileigh know anything about 90s teens? Or anything about the 90s at all? (Also, there may be a secret in this episode somewhere...) Music: "Baby You Change Your...

Do those even still exist for the teens of today? Does live tweeting count? Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas

So let's talk about what we really really should keep and what could maybe be tossed, like every movie ticket you've ever received *cough Rileigh cough*.
