Episode Summary

EDIT
Big Screech on Campus
AIRED:
Screech takes the gang on a tour of his alma mater, Cal U., where it seems his old fraternity brothers aren't very interested in him, but are interested in the girls. One of the guys, Michael, make plays for both Maria and Rachel. Tommy, Lindsay and Ryan sit in on a psych class and get hypnotized, which results in Lindsay and Ryan being attracted to R.J. and Rachel, respectively, while Tommy goes for...Mr. B! Screech is down about being forgotten by his old buddies, so Ryan concocts a plan to make him popular by pretending that R.J. is a star football recruit. The guys buy this and try to get R.J. to join their fraternity. When R.J. tells them his hero is Screech, they plan to make Screech fraternity president. Screech is so impressed he wants to quit his Bayside job and return to Cal U. But everything is revealed at a phony ceremony for Screech, including Michael's two-timing of Maria and Rachel.moreless

  • Screech and the gang go visit Cal U where Screech, Zack, Slater, and Kelly went to school during their "College Years" days. The loser Screech thinks that since hes an alum that hes the big man on campus but hes in for more then just a rude awakening.moreless

    8.1
    The episode starts off with a couple background shots of fictional California University which was the campus used during the "SBTB: The College Years" episodes. The gang, along with Belding, are visiting on a type of orientation thing. They sit in on a few classes while Maria goes guy hunting. In a scene straight up ripped off of "The Fight" SBTB episode, both Maria and Rachel fall for the same guy without knowing its the same guy. From the compliments to the description of the guy it was almost verbatim with the exception of the roles being reversed sexwise. The second plotline revolves around Screech and his fraternity. Flashback to The College Years when Screech made it into the frat over Zack and Slater. Well now a couple years later, nobody recognizes Screech or even his point of being there which made me laugh hysterically. Ryan comes up with the brilliant idea to have RJ pose as a star high school football player getting recruited by Cal U. He gets invited to the frat party and big ups Screech by saying the only way he'll go is if Screech is going to be there too. Unbeknownst to him, Screech really thinks the frat is back into him, not because of RJ, and he dances the night away. The plan horrifically backfires though as Screech moronically, as usual, decides to quit Bayside in favor of being a frat brother at Cal U where its obvious hes not wanted even though he is yet to find that out. Fast forward to a meeting with the guys including Belding, minus Screech. Belding tells the gang to come clean with Screech and say they basically lied for their owm selfish reasons. The truth is finally revealed in a classic Screech flub up. A couple frat members tell Screech to put in a good word for them to RJ and his football skills when Screech laughs hysterically and claims that RJ has never touched pads or played football in his life to the frat members shock. The members decide to get a little payback and set up a meeting where theyre going to crown Screech "president" of the frat. The episode ends with the "presidential crowning" turning into a big time slime-fest as both groups poor slime all over each other. Maria and Rachel even get back and slime that dude that tried to play them both earlier in the episode. Overall an average at best episode. The only saving grace IMO was the visit back to the college campus where SBTB: The College Years was shot. This episode honestly made me miss The College Years more then the actual advancement of the weak plots. Basically the scores high because of the visit back to the college atmosphere.moreless
