    • Zack: So I can watch The Young and the Restless. Jessie: It's more the Blonde and the Useless.

    Notes (1)

    • Slater and Jessie become a couple for the first time and they stay together until after Zack and Kelly broke up.

    Trivia (2)

    • When Lisa asked why she had to go with Screech, Mr. Belding said that he put them in alphabetical order. That can't be true because Screech's last name starts with a P and Lisa's last name starts with a T. Slater and Jessie are paired off too and their last names start with an S and since S is three letters after P and one letter before T, they didn't really get put in alphabetical order.

    • Goof: This is the only time that Lisa is "allergic" to Screech. It does not happen in prior/future episodes.

    Allusions (2)

    • During the scene at The Max between A. C. and Jessie, A.C., A.C. tells Jessie that he will 'send her to the moon.' This is an allusion to the series, The Honeymooners. The series starred Jackie Gleason and ran from 1955 through 1956.

    • The episode title "The Mamas and the Papas" refers to a popular singing group from the 1960's.
