Homecoming Dance (Events)

"You know, uh, if we were the type of people who attended school functions, this would probably be the time that I'd ask you to Homecoming Dance."

Homecoming is an annual tradition observed by many American towns, high schools, and colleges to welcome back former residents and alumni. Most high school students, however, only care about the accompanying dance, an opportunity to cement both their social and relationship status among their peers. And we really do mean cement: asking and being asked to the dance is the high school equivalent of a marriage proposal. Considering how Veronica's classmates treat her worse than burnt toast, no one can blame Troy for not expecting a "yes" from Veronica here.
