The kids convince Miss Bliss to ask Mr. Belding to bend the school rules and allow them to have an 8th grade dance. Mr. Belding reluctantly agrees if Miss Bliss will chaperone the dance. She says she can't as she already had a date for the evening. Mr. Belding won't allow the dance unless she agrees to chaperone so she finally says she will. When she tries to break her date, he assumes she wants him to come with her, so she ends up bringing him to the dance with her.
Meanwhile, Mikey likes a girl and finally works up the courage to ask her to the dance, but Zack already asked her and she accepted. Mikey is angry with Zack and they get into an argument, which is not resolved until the night of the dance. Mikey confronts Zack at the dance and they almost get into a fight, but Zack backs down and apologizes and asks Mikey to take the girl home. The show ends with Miss Bliss and her date "getting down" and dancing.moreless
