    The episode opens up with Maria trying to find a job for her loser brother. Im not really a violent person but i gotta say that this punk ass prag Tino deserves to get knocked out for his immature and care-free crap when it comes to job responsibilities. I mean hes got a bright sister in Maria that seems to be doing everything in her power to find him a job and within the first day on the job he screws it up. I wish she'd just slap the taste out of his maggot mouth...LOL. This all comes to a head when Maria gets Tinhoe a job at The Teen Machine where she works at. He proceeds to drop dishes but they led it slide and chalk it up as first day jitters. The nail in that prags coffin though is when he uses day old fruit for the days drinks when he was specifically told by the boss to get rid of the day old fruit and replace it with new ones. All of the sudden the entire club gets sick because the moron got too lazy when it came to replacing fruit. Not only does he get fired but he gets Maria (who had been there 2 years) fired too. The storyeline ends with Katie having a talk with Maria and telling her that shes gotta stop making excuses for Tino and let him find jobs and do things on his own. It seems to work as Tino finally did one good thing in his pathetic little existence and gets Maria her job back at The Teen Machine by saying it was all his fault and Maria had nothing to do with it. The next plot has to do with Ryan and Eric entering a contest to win a jet ski. Since Ryan works at the store the contest is being held in he cant enter. That leaves it up to Eric being tutored by Ryan on the pop culture questions that will be asked. All is well until it is determined that there is a three-way tie. They plan to settle it the next day and Ryan gives Eric an ear piece so he can feed Eric the answers. It works at first but Security Prag Screech catches Ryan and Eric in the act and they get disqualified.



    The third and final plot has to do with Screechs Mall Security job interfering way too much with his job at Bayside. The straw that broke Beldings back was when Screech was supposed to be at Bayside watching the detentionees and instead he had them come to the mall to watch a movie as their punishment (whats next??? the electric chair??? *sarcasm*) Belding catches the kids in the theater and gives Screech an ultimatum that hes either gotta choose the security job or Bayside. Of course he chooses Bayside but not before we get the usual "suspenseful long think about it when we know 100% that hes not leaving Bayside...LOL."



    All in all this episode was average at best. Tino has got to go down as one of the most annoying side characters in the SBTB franchise history. I think thats what makes this episode somewhat watchable is because he is so bad in it...LOL. The Eric/Ryan cheating scam was cool at first but you knew theyd eventually get busted. And as usual the Screech/Belding storyline for about the 20th episode in a row was the boringist in that we knew Screech was coming back to Bayside so all we got was five plus minutes of unneeded suspense. See you next time kids.moreless
