    Since two plots occured during this episode, im going to break them both down serperately so that theres no confusion. The episode starts off with the auditions for the upcoming school play (no play name was given), coming up as usual, and everyones jockying for the position they wanna play. Katie gets assigned the head of the wardrobe, props, and other basic "behind the scenes" types of things. Now in the midst of all this, Maria overhears one of her school play friends talk about weed and that it helps relax you in tense situations. Soon after Maria basically becomes a pothead. Shes constantly showing uo late for practices, forgetting her lines, etc. Nicky even goes as far as to confront her mother although he doesnt give even a hint about specifically her pot usage. The final straw between Nicky and Maria came one day during a rehearsal where it was obvious Maria was outside smoking pot while reheasels were inside waiting for her. She finally stumbled in and made a complete jackass out of herself leading to Katie firing her from the play. Afterwards a very heated argument ensues between Eric and Maria and they end their relationship.



    My typing finger is getting tired so ill make this second and much less important plot short and sweet. The biggest dork on the planet aka Scratch comes down the school stairs in a t-shirt and boxers claiming he has a high fever. The thing i dont get about this worthless waste of bodily fluids is that why didnt he put on at least mesh shorts before entering Bayside. Eric starts doing good work for Belding filling in for Scratch (average work IMO but work that Scratch Screech would take for granted). The piece of absolute hampster turd decides to stage a fire in Beldings office garbage can and then proceeds to not being able to put it out. Eric comes in and puts it out. Its at that point that Eric relizes that Screech should retain the job. (IMO it was because he knew that, that 50 year old POS Scratch wouldve have never left him alone on some stalker ish) and the best way for his safety was to call it quits.



    Well thats the end of this segmant boys and girls. I hope a few leassons here and there have been learned, The first is dont take 7 blue footballs (1mg Zanny The Nanny's) before typing this review as youll make a lof of spelling and grammer mistakes. And the other one is that Screech is the Worst TV Character In History And Should Find Something Better To Do In His Sad, Pathetic Life!!!)moreless
