Matt Camden - Season 4 (1999-2000)

Frustrated by a lack of privacy at home, and anxious to finally be out on his own, Matt went out with the Glenoak classified ads in hand and located a studio apartment in a run-down neighborhood across town from his parents' home. He and longtime friend John Hamilton (Chaz Lamar Shepherd) declared the tiny, filthy apartment to be "perfect" - mostly because it was the best they could afford - and agreed to become roommates. With the help of his Aunt Julie's new husband, Hank Hastings (Ed Begley, Jr.), and urged on by his sisters, Matt landed a job in the cafeteria at Glen Oak Hospital, where he became the butt of his family's jokes for wearing a hairnet and dishing out "orange slop." None too happy when John landed a cushy job programming music for the entire hospital, Matt nevertheless managed to hold onto his job and later moved up a notch to become an orderly.

Although he and Shana had been a couple for more than six months, Matt was dismayed to find out that she had arranged a reunion with her father (who had abandoned her as an infant) without telling him. Despite working two jobs, Shana was unable to afford medical school and hoped her father's money would allow her to follow her lifelong dream. She was shocked, and yet not surprised, when her father informed her that she needed to find funding for school on her own. Shortly thereafter, perhaps out of a need to share something important with Shana, Matt declared that he too would attend medical school and become a doctor.
When Mary fell into serious trouble by helping her basketball teammates vandalize the Kennedy High gym in retaliation for a "get your grades up or else" team lockout, and convinced that Eric was still in precarious health after a mild heart attack earlier in the season, Matt surprised his roommate John and (once again) his family by announcing his intention to move back home and resume his position as "the oldest." Discovering that his siblings didn't need his help as much as he'd assumed they did, he abandoned his plan and remained a tenant of the tiny, noisy studio apartment. His problems with Shana continued, and he urged her to attend counseling with him, which she refused to do. When they finally sat down to talk, Shana told him how important becoming a doctor was to her. She would find room in her life for him, she promised, but once again she left him out by pursuing an application to attend med school 3000 miles away at New York University. When the school accepted her for the January term, she was forced to tell him what she'd done. Feeling badly betrayed, but urged by his parents to show his love by letting her go, he congratulated her "impressive achievement" both with sparkling cider and with tears.

Left behind in Glenoak, Matt antagonized both John and Simon with his constant moping and lack of interest in school, work, "big brother-little brother" time, and John's need for a girlfriend of his own. Urged on by Annie, Matt attempted to keep his relationship with Shana alive via frequent phone calls, only to discover that (a) she was rarely at home to take the call, and (b) she seemed to be enjoying herself mightily with her new friends, notably her male roommate Brett. After the holidays, his old flame Heather moved back to Glenoak to be with her mother and became a student at Crawford University. Despite Matt's insistence that he and Heather were only friends, and his earlier declaration to Shana that he loved Heather "like a sister," it became increasingly obvious, especially to John, that Matt and Heather's romantic feelings for each other were still very strong.
At the end of the season, Shana returned to Glenoak for the summer accompanied by her roommate Brett. When Matt discovered that she was no longer the girl with whom he'd fallen in love - and that she had fallen for Brett during their months apart - he admitted that their relationship was over, leaving him free to follow his heart (and roommate John's persuasion) and admit his love for Heather. The last scene of the season finale found Heather and Matt, who'd told her "This is what you do when you're in love, and you know it's forever," entering a wedding chapel hand in hand.

Matt Camden - Season 5 (2000-2001)

Here We Go Again: Matt entered his junior year at Crawford not as a married man, but still single - Heather had suffered a case of cold feet and left him standing at the altar. After a frustrating and disappointing summer of trying to remain close to her, he decided the only possible move was to break up. It was too soon to be friends, Heather told him, reassuring him that she would see him around campus.
Help: The breakup did nothing to bring Matt out of his funk, and when he scored a D on an important organic chemistry pre-test, he quickly blamed his lack of focus on Heather. Only after some soul-searching did he realize that he could really blame no one but himself.
Losers: Matt was asked to chauffeur Simon on his date with a sophomore hottie. Unfortunately, while out picking up some milk, Matt spotted a gorgeous woman dancing in a local tavern and quickly forgot about his brother. After an evening of slow dancing, they kissed goodnight out on the street. When he finally showed up at the house, Matt assured Simon that he loved him, and promised to chauffeur the following week.
. Busted: True to his word (this time), Matt provided transportation for Simon's date with spelling bee champ Marsha Chalker, who turned out to be a washout as a date. After taking Marsha home, the Camden brothers hung out together at the Promenade to "pick up chicks."
Blind: To John's dismay, Matt attempted to land a date with classmate Kim, who wanted nothing to do with him.
Broke: When Mary's credit card company threatened to take legal action against her for not paying her bills, the other Camden sibs decided to band together to help. Since none of them had any money to give her, they turned to the only possible source of cash: the twins's piggy banks, which contained over $400. Matt turned the money over to Mary, insisting she use it to pay her bills immediately.

Bye: The family staged an intervention for Mary, with Matt urging his sister to become a responsible person, which he said was the best thing he had ever done for himself. Mary was angry and unimpressed, and left with no more options, Eric and Annie sent her away to live with the Colonel and Grandma Ruth in Buffalo.

Gossip: Matt spotted a beautiful blonde in a wedding dress outside his father's church, and announced to John that he was going to marry her - without even knowing her name. After spending a week trying to find her again, they spent an evening together before she had to leave town.
Tunes: Heather left Matt a note, saying she needed to talk to him. In spite of his wearing new pants just for her (under the assumption that she wanted to get back together), she told him she was dating someone new, a professor at Crawford.
Surprise! Still down in the dumps over his relationship with Heather, Matt found himself trapped with a very romantic John and Priscilla and no way to avoid them except hiding in the bathroom. When John proposed to Priscilla, Matt had no choice but to gather up some of his belongings and head for his parents' house. To his dismay, he discovered that the Camden house had a new boarder: Mary's ex, Robbie.

Home: Feeling unwanted both at home and at the apartment, Matt sought refuge at Heather's place, interrupting a quiet afternoon for Heather and her new boyfriend. Things got worse when John informed Matt that Priscilla's parents had disowned her for becoming engaged to someone she barely knew - and the "happy" couple wanted to live together in Matt and John's apartment.

One Hundred: Matt and Simon offered a ride to Mrs. Bink and ended up sticking around at the hospital with her as she waited for the results of her annual mammogram. When she was treated badly by a young doctor, Matt came to her defense.

Kiss: Already feeling elbowed out because of John and Priscilla's engagement, Matt was even more upset to discover that John and Robbie were hanging out together. His hissy fit continued until he dropped by the apartment and saw that Priscilla had redecorated the place with "little furniture" which John quickly admitted that he hated.
