Episode Summary

EDIT
The Tall and the Short of It
AIRED:
It's time for the girls to ask the boys out to the Sadie Hawkins Dance. Rachel is nervous about it, but Maria goads her into asking out Ryan, who accepts. Eric wants cute and popular Jennifer Wagner to ask him out, but she's not even sure what his name is. Nicky arrogantly acts like he expects Katie to ask him to the dance, but she hasn't done it yet. Maria goes into the business of selling dating advice. Eric makes a play for Jennifer, but it's not working. To make Katie jealous, Nicky says he's got another date; Katie tells him that's good, go with her. Rachel and Ryan have their picture taken by Screech for the paper. Rachel's head is cut off in the picture. Both of them say they are cool with their height difference but in truth it seems to bother them. Screech tries helps Ryan with a pair of platform shoes and a pompadour wig, but he just ends up looking foolish on a date with Rachel. The two decide to back out of their date to the dance, but they both seem reluctant. Maria advises Eric to feign interest in coin collecting to attract Jennifer. It works, and she asks him to the dance. Nicky learns from Maria that Katie doesn't have a date for the dance either, just like him. Nicky and Katie talk and find out they really wanted to go with each other all along but handled it all wrong. Maria has Rachel and Ryan fill out personality profiles and tells them to meet their new dates at the dance. Maria has only one unsatisfied customer, Fuzzy. When her own date Sean turns up sick, Maria is stuck with Fuzzy. At the dance, Jennifer turns out to be a lousy date for Eric, talking about nothing but coin collecting. It also turns out that Maria has a good time with Fuzzy. Ryan and Rachel arrive to meets their new dates and find that Maria has wisely paired them up again. The only other problem is that Mr. Belding messed up the order for refreshments because he refused to wear his new glasses.moreless
