    The episode starts off with the gang in the middle of their French vacation. Ryan's newfound interest is photography. While cruising around France he encounters a gorgeous photographer chick that says if he ever needs pointers or advice in the future then dont hesitate to call her. As with most relationships, Liz takes offense and gets jealous, especially when Ryan takes her up on her offer to go hang out and take pictures. It gets so bad that the girls dress as mimes (yes mimes...LOL) and spy on Ryan and the girl's photo lesson at the Eiffel Tower. Liz mistakedly thinks theyre about to kiss and bounces upset. In reality the lady was just showing Ryan something to the effect of eye contact with the camera. When Ryan gets home Liz has a revenge date planned with this scumbag Italian prag. Ryan is shocked and finds out where they went. He gets there just as the Italian piece of crap is pushing himself on Liz. Ryan tells the dirtball to back off (i wish Ryan wouldve hooked the punk but TNBC most likely wouldnt have allowed it). The Italian prag says a few cornball words and leaves the scene. After a few back and forth explanations, apologies, etc. both Ryan and Liz agree to be fully honest with each other in the future so something like this doesnt happen.



    The second storyline revolves around Eric having a liking for the new French tour guide. He feels the need to overimpress her though when he invites her over for dinner. He goes way too f'n crazy though like hanging French flags from his walls and wearing french style hats (beret's?). The tour guide chick buys it at first but soon finds out that hes a liar. He too comes clean and says he only thought she would like him if he pretended to be this huge France fanatic. After apologizing the tour guide chick gives him another chance.



    The third and by far dumbest plot of the episode was between...Who Else??? Belding and Screech. Screech tells Belding he wants to make a clay mold of his face to which Belding obliges. Screech makes the mold but when it comes to taking it off has no clue how to do it. He tries scissors but they snap in half. The rest of the episode has Belding randomly showing up in spots with the clay head and two straws (for air) sticking out of his nose. No resolution was made to his specific problem as the episode ends with Belding (clay mask and all) threatening to strangle Screech for doing this to him.



    All in all a so-so episode with a little bit of reptitive storylines but arguably the worst duo in television history (Belding and Screech) never fail to dissapoint as having the most useless and pointless storylines from week to week.moreless
