Just Can't Get Enough are the first and second episodes and the two-part premiere for Season 9 of Degrassi: The Next Generation. It aired on October 4, 2009, in Canada, and on October 9, 2009, in the United States.

Summary[]

When Mia is offered a major modeling contract in Paris, Peter decides that he'll go with her, but he soon realizes he does not fit into her sophisticated world. At a fancy party, feeling frustrated and insecure, a guest offers an unlikely escape: crystal meth. Soon enough, Peter's 'trip' goes terribly wrong. Back at Degrassi, Alli is concerned when new girl Jenna focuses on becoming Clare's friend. There's no way this is going to end well and Alli is absolutely not going to let it.

Main Plot[]

Mia gets a modeling job in France and Peter is ecstatic with joy because he thinks he will go too. Declan and Fiona invite the couple to their parents' party and Peter makes a fool out of himself. He is later offered meth from Victoria, the Coynes' cousin, and accepts it. He is "energized" and begins to make his public embarrassment even worse. Fiona explains Mia about the meth and Mia brings Peter home and tells him to stop the meth.

Peter says he will, but lies and reverts back to it. He keeps going to get more and more "happy" as he does. The next day, Mia visits and tells him to get some help. She then apologizes at school and they make up. Peter plans to go with her, but then realizes he does not belong with her. She is brokenhearted but not surprised since he was right. Mia then tells him to get counseling.

Peter has a meltdown and does more meth. At the dance, he freaks out and goes to the middle of the street at night. The Stüdz and Riley come to assist and bring him home. Peter calls his mother and Ms. Hatzilakos returns to help. Peter and Mia get over their fight and promise to keep in touch. 

Sub Plot[]

Back at Degrassi, Alli is concerned when new girl Jenna focuses on becoming Clare's friend. Alli begins to become jealous when Clare spends more time with Jenna than her, but finally they all make up when Jenna explains she wants to be friends with both of them. Holly J. is overstressed by "niners" who insist that she follow their demands and cannot say no because Blue is convinced that Holly J. is a new, nicer person. Finally, at the dance, she breaks down and dumps Blue.
