Episode Summary

It's Hoosier Harvest Week and in Miss Bliss's words: "...a time for hay rides, bonfires, and practical jokes." In her eleven years at JFK, nobody has ever been able to play a successful prank on Miss Bliss, so all the kids want to be the one to get her this year. After a few unsuccessful pranks, someone does manage to get Miss Bliss. All evidence points to Screech as the culprit. Miss Bliss decides to use this as an opportunity to show how the judicial system works by putting Screech on trial. Zack is Screech's defense attorney, Nicki is the prosecutor, and Miss Bliss is the judge. Screech is found not guilty, but then who is the real culprit? It turns out that Miss Bliss played the prank on herself. Nobody was paying attention in class so she staged the prank in order to have an excuse for the trial. Everyone would have to study the chapters of their textbooks on the judicial system in order to learn the procedures for having a trial. After class, while she's talking to Screech about the trial, she helps Screech open his locker and is bombarded with paper snakes, silly string, and confetti. Screech has played a successful prank, after all!moreless
