Episode Summary

EDIT

It's Parents Week at JFK Jr. High. Lisa is worried that her parents will find out she wears makeup at school. Miss Bliss assures her in a roundabout way that she won't tell. Nicki is worried that her parents will be disappointed in her and Lisa reassures her that they'll always be proud of her. Screech is worried that his parents will find out that he's not the coolest guy that he's told them he is. Miss Bliss reassures him also. He tells his parents the truth and they understand.

That afternoon, Zack's father shows up to meet Miss Bliss and it turns out that they've met each other before on a special weekend trip on which they exchanged first names only. They are surprised and pleased to find each other again until Miss Bliss discovers that he's Zack's father. He tries to charm her and even kisses her--and just then Zack walks in. They try to explain and Zack's father invites her to go out to dinner with them. She is reluctant, but Zack says he doesn't mind.

In the next scene, we see Zack talking to Mikey, telling about how horrible it was to see his father kissing his teacher. In class that morning Zack tells Miss Bliss he couldn't do his homework assignment the previous evening because he was up late talking with his dad, "if you know what I mean." Everyone is astounded when she accepts this excuse.

Zack and Mikey cut school to go buy concert tickets. Miss Bliss corners Screech and he tells on them. She catches them just as they are coming back to school. She sends Mikey back to class, but tells him she'll see his parents later that evening. She and Zack talk things out. He tells her he doesn't like it that his teacher is dating his father and she apologizes. She says that she knew it was wrong and she's sorry for hurting him.

Miss Bliss tells Zack's father that they can't see each other as long as he is her student. He tries to change her mind, but she is adamant. She does say that maybe they can try again after Zack graduates.

  • Miss Bliss & Zack's father.

    7.0
    A very special episode because when do you see a teacher dating a student's parent, it can only happen in the 80's I guess. I love Zack's bad attitude. He looks like a girl when he rolls his eyes though. I have to admit he was being a jerk. They were such a good couple & I didn't want them to break up. I like the B plot but it sucked for Nikki that her parents went on vacation without her. That sucks. The C plot was rarely touched on & I felt like it needed to be shown more, the whole thing with Screech.moreless
