    9.1
    The episode starts off with the gang, including tweedle dee (Belding) and tweedle dumb (Screech), back at Cal U. for the end of their college orientation. Its comedy that the dorm room theyre all staying in is identical to the one the original college years gang lived it. The main storyline focuses on Rachel reconnecting with her old next door neighbor Craig who is now a student at Cal U. Rachel is hesitant to call at first because of embarassment but with the support of Lindsey and Maria she finally calls him and they set up a meeting to catch up on old times. They hit it off and Craig walks Rachel back to the her temporary dorm room. When he asks for a goodnight kiss she gives him one on the cheek but he wants more. After forcing her to kiss him on the lips she pulls away and he gets mad pissed at her, tells her to grow up, and walks away like the little trick that he is. Rachel tells the girls about the incident and they suggest that maybe it was a misunderstanding. This is "confirmed" when Craig sends flowers to Rachel along with a note apologizing for his behavior the previous night. Gullible ass Rachel believes that punk ass trick and agrees to go to a concert with him. Fast forward to after the concert and Craig brings Rachel into a classroom that has a telescope in it. He tries to kick his weak ass game by telling her to look through to see some stars and the planet Mars. While Rachels looking Craig comes up from behind her and starts forcing himself on her. She tries to push him off and after a few attempts finally does and runs out of the room. The next day Ryan throws a party at their temporary dorm to end their college visit on a high note. Lindsey and Maria go to Rachels room to see why she isnt partying and she explains that Craig f'd up again and this time she shows them a huge ass bruise on her upper right arm. The girls plead with her to tell Belding but she says she doesnt want to make it public. A few minutes later that fruitcake Craig shows up and is immediately confronted by both Lindsey and Maria asking him why hes there. Before he can answer Rachel appears and blows up his spot hardcore. I mean the music went down and the entire party heard Rachel call him out on the attempted assault and then she reveals the bruise. That trick Craig tries to play it off like Rachels just some jealous high school girl. Then another random girl at the party steps forward and said Craig did the same to her. The episode ends with Belding telling Craig that he needs to seek some anger management help immediately before he really hurts somebody. He half ass agrees, the gang tells Rachel theyre proud of her for stepping up, and that pretty much wraps the episode up.



    All in all i ranked it so high because like i said in the "Big Screech On Campus" episode, i really enjoy when they go back to Cal U. Also the main storyline with the whole attempted sexual assault plot was properly used IMO and to find out that Rachel wasnt the first girl hes done this to wasnt a shocker but i was surprised that another girl at the party played that prick Craig out too saying he did it to her. Season 3 so far has had some ups and downs but this episode was definately on the up side.moreless
