  • Trivia

    • Zack tells Kelly that he has loved her since kindergarten, but that he had a crush on Marcia Brady. Kelly was not in junior high with him: "Good Morning, Miss Bliss". She came on the scene in high school: "Saved By the Bell".

    • Dean McMann tells Kelly that she was accepted into the Semester and Sea program and she leaves in less than a week. There are logistic problems that are not recognized. Kelly would need a pass port, which takes weeks (if not months) to obtain. Since Kelly was from a poor family, it is not likely that she had traveled abroad and would already have a passport as a freshman in college.

    • At the beginning of this episode the gang is watching "Love Story" a 1970 movie.

    • The book that Zack gives Screech in an attempt to make up is the same book that Screech had when the gang went to Jesse's dad's hotel in SBTB.
