  • Lindsey and Tommy pick up smoking and learn valuable lessons as to why its a dangerous and eventually deadly habit.

    9.1
    The episode starts out with Belding and Screech running a candy store in the mall. To no ones surprise Screech starts giving out trick candy to people like hes still in second grade. This eventually backfires on him though as he accidently orders a bunch of trick candy for the store instead of the regular candy and all of the customers get either hot candy or lollipops stuck to their tounges. Meanwhile Rachel and Lindsey are working at a womens clothing store and with an upcoming fashion show going on they want to be part of it. With a little help from Ryan and RJ, the store manager picks them to be the models. While hearing advice from another model, Lindsey is offered a cigarette and reluctantly takes it and smokes it to Rachels shock. Lindseys habit gets worse as she lies to her boyfriend Ryan about leaving something behind so she can smoke another cig. He eventually learns the deal though as when they kiss he tastes her cig breath and advises her to stop to which she obliges, for the time being. Fast forward to Marias club where once again Lindsey is smoking and ignores her friends repeated warnings. This all comes to a head when her and Rachel are getting ready for the fashion show and Lindsey accidently lights one of the dresses on fire and gets fired from both the show and her job. Later on Lindsey has a dream where its 25 years into the future and the gang is celebrating Tommys 10 years of quitting smoking. To her shock, Lindsey is dead from smoking and comes to the realization that smoking might not be the best thing in the world to do. The fashion show goes on with Maria replacing Lindsey and is flawless. The episode ends with Lindsey telling Ryan that shes sorry for not listening to his earlier warnings and she is going to stop smoking for good to which he couldnt be happier. Also forgot to mention that Tommy D smokes throughout the episode and even gets kicked off one of his sports teams because of how easily he got winded because of smoking.moreless
