'Degrassi' OGs Open Up About The Show's Most Iconic Coming Out

Drop the marinara sauce and watch this exclusive clip from the upcoming "Degrassi" special.

With a revolving door of teenagers and plot, "Degrassi: The Next Generation" truly went there over its 14-season run. It's nearly impossible to pick a single, game changing episode.

JT's death, Craig's battle with bipolar disorder, Emma's eating disorder, Paige's rape, Spinner's cancer, Rick's humiliation and subsequent violent attack on Jimmy -- they were all incredibly moving and totally unforgettable. (RIP James Tiberius Yorke.) But "Degrassi" didn't always have to go to extremes to prove a point, which is why "Pride" remains one of its greatest accomplishments. And it just so happens to be a cast favorite as well.

In the emotional season 3 two-parter, Marco comes out to his best friend Spinner. We honestly haven't been able to hear the words "marinara sauce" without thinking of Marco for over a decade.

Watch the show's original stars Adamo Ruggiero (Marco), Stacey Farber (Ellie), Shane Kippel (Spinner) and Jake Epstein (Craig) talk about Marco's coming out and its lasting importance in this exclusive clip from the upcoming "Degrassi" retrospective, "It Goes There," airing this Friday (July 31).

The SERIES FINALE (sob) of "Degrassi: The Next Generation" airs this Friday, but don't worry, huns: "Degrassi: Next Class" will premiere on Netflix in 2016.
