Episode Summary

When the kids have to dissect frogs for a biology class, Nicki says no way! Not only squeamish about the dissection process, but she also doesn't like the idea of all the innocent frogs being killed just for a class activity. She attempts to rally everyone's support to her campaign to free the frogs, but no one is interested. However, Zack and the others say they'll cover for her if she wants to skip class. Nicki then approaches Miss Bliss and she then tries to talk the biology teacher into allowing Nicki to abstain from the dissection process, but he refuses. Seeing no other way out, Nicki frees all the frogs.

Meanwhile, Miss Bliss receives a letter from an exclusive private school and Mr. Belding assumes they are trying to lure her away to a new job. He then begins his own campaign to keep Miss Bliss, acting extra nice and giving her all sorts of visual aids and extras (a globe, and encyclopedia set, a VCR & TV, etc). When Nicki is brought to him to receive her punishment for letting the frogs go free, Mr. Belding sees that Miss Bliss supports her position, so he tells Nicki, "Don't do it again," and that's it.

The science teacher gets in a new batch of frogs and the day of the rescheduled dissection class, they all disappear again. Nicki is suspected, of course, but she surprises Miss Bliss and the biology teacher by bringing all the frogs back except one - the one that would have been hers. She says that if she doesn't respect the rights of others, then she is as bad as what she's fighting against. She says that she will take a zero for a grade. However, Miss Bliss provides the biology teacher with an alternative for Nicki, a computerized dissection program which he allows her to use. Before episode's end, Mr. Belding learns that no school was trying to take away Miss Bliss after all.moreless
