DTNGFASHION S4E7: Time Stands Still, Part 1 Aired: 2004
Poor Toby, man. He’s sandwiched between bullying and his best friend who is a murderer. He wears one of those polos with the horizontal chest stripe, baggy casual khakis with skate shoes, his usual spiked hair and tiny glasses. He’s also seen afterwards in a red tee and a greyish overshirt.

Random person roundup! Okay, first is Joey’s realtor who, honestly, dresses nothing like anyone we’ve seen on the show. I guess she dresses like the 80s tbh. A shoulderpadded suit, a neck scarf, and big hair. She seems nice enough but she and Joey were really not meshing. Next is this Quest for the Best host — lol wait, I think this is called Whack Your Brain. Come on, seriously, could they not give us ONE little nod to the original?! Sheesh. Anyway, his suit is ALL brown. Then an array of students in the audience, wearing things like puka shells, track jackets, and spiked hair.

Toby is definitely giving off vibes of wisdom in this episode. Toby is confident in who he is, yet he knows his place. It’s a stark contrast to starry-eyed Rick who thinks anything is freaking possible for some unknown reason. Toby’s self-awareness is actually probably part of what gets him way more kisses in the kissing contest. Toby dresses comfortably – kind of nerdy but also kind of normal. It’s a very balanced style. Polos, baggy jeans, glasses, etc. But the spiked hair makes him seem just a little less nerdy. As if to suggest “I’m a nerd by choice but I don’t have to be”.
Side note, this little kiss-collecting competition reminds me of one my friend and I had in grade 7. We started taking a poll – I think we either asked everyone “which one of us is prettier” or “which one of us do you like better”. Sadly my friend was widely disliked so I won by a landslide, and she was shocked and surprised by it. I am historically friends with extra annoying or very disliked people. I don’t know what that’s about, but it’s worked out fine.
We conclude Mercy Street with poor, forgotten, cast-aside Toby. Nah actually he does play a small part here, helping JT with his penis. Also, in Season 4, Toby has debuted a new hairstyle – we didn’t get to see it well in the last post so here’s a better look – SPIKED HAIR! Good lord can we bring this back!? Actually, both of Toby’s hairstyles have been great imo. Toby hair appreciation moment!
First, Toby is of course swimming in a t-shirt. No shame of course but come on… does anyone actually WANT to wear a t-shirt over their bathing suit? He also has these sunglasses that look like the slick Oakleys we all coveted at the time. I myself had some Foakleys I bought off a dude on the street in Washington DC. Whatever it takes, right? Next, Toby is wearing skate shoes to gym, which is… a choice. Next he is JT’s penis assistant in this red tee, baggy pants, and the skate shoes. I just used to CRAVE those flat soles and thick tongues, man. I loved skate shoes. I unfortunately wore them an undeserving amount considering how little I skateboarded.

Spinner steals from Jimmy in this episode, oof. So first he wears a long sleeve tee with like, shoulder stripes, and accessorizes with his man necklace. Then we see him browsing the internet, wishing he could buy some “Triple 5 Soul” attire like Jimmy’s. The brand, by the way, is Canadian and is still going! Then we see his famous dragon hoodie, which he gets made fun of for wearing too much. Dude, I remember getting made fun of for that too. Whose idea was that to be mean about wearing something you like several times? Whatever. Then he’s in some kind of Nascar-lookin long sleeve shirt. And, if you’ve never seen the episode, this last shot should show how it all turned out – he’s in a caf uniform because things went to crap.
I don’t know why, but Spinner, he just, he seems like he smells like spray cheese. I guess that little spray cheese scene last season has ruined him for me forever. He is still rocking the bleached/spiked do, and wears a long sleeve maroon graphic tee, jewelry, and a grey zip up hoodie. Next he’s in some other graphic tee, giving Ashley a confused look. And finally, he is wearing a reddish/blue shirt for JT’s condom exhibition.
We are reaching the PEAK of Goth Ashley. And this episode, is all about just that. Discrimination against the goths. There’s something about the opening scene here, the overwhelming camera angle, just does a great job of portraying Jimmy’s overwhelmed point of view. (You may remember that Jimmy’s having second thoughts about dating a goth.) First we see her in a scoop neck kinda top, a choker, and extra makeup. The next shot is a beautiful closeup of her smoky eye. I also got a shot of those shimmery nails. Here in the hall it actually looks like she’s wearing the same ‘fit she had on while playing piano for Jimmy in the house. And then when she puts on the black fur coat – I’ll say it again – MAJESTIC. Oh yeah, and her hair is straight up black now btw. I did catch a shot of the Ashley photo that is in Jimmy’s locker – Season 1 Ashley in that Tommy Hilfiger dress (idk if that’s who it’s really by, it’s just who it makes me think of) looking like a TOTAL normie. Ashley is like, bitch, take that down. Anyway now we are at dinner and still in the same outfit. Good view of the spiky hair actually. And the next fit is a top with a kind of corset-y neckline and a mesh panel up top. This panel has holes in it and doesn’t look like it came that way, tbh. She wears a cardi over it. Then a couple more TBTs of old Ashley are shown from the yearbook. Then, we get a cute glimpse of her makeup, as she sits in her bathrobe contemplating whether to make everyone else happy (be a normie) or make herself happy (experiment). She decides to try making everyone else happy. So she wears a purple polo and a periwinkle zipup hoodie over top, with a cross body bag, jeans, and light makeup. Oh and I got a couple shots of her skit with Craig, wearing an apron and an awful wig. And for our LAST shot, the old Ashley is back, and she looks gorgeous, in this red lacy or velvety top and a long necklace.
