    The episode starts off with Baysides newest couple, Tony and Maria at the movie theater. Since they are so new as a couple they havent even kissed yet. They are just about to when the gang interrupts to inform them that the dating game show Two of Hearts will be taping a show at Bayside. The shows premise is that two couples get asked questions about their other half and if they match their other halfs answer then they get a point. The producer and host of the show arrive at Bayside ready to audition couples but not before they are bothered by Liz and Eric. First Liz begs the producer for a job so he gives her the job title of "student producer" which sounds good nameswise but all she ends up being is his errand girl (for example bringing him coffee, picking up his lunch, etc.) Poor Liz. Next Eric is chosen as the student to do the live commerical. He milks his newfound stardom into getting multiple dates. Unfortunately for him the commercial was for a zit cream and not only did he have to sing about it but he was dressed in a horrific zit costume. Now back to the couple auditions. Nicky and Katie are a shue in for one of the two couples the show has on because of their overwhelming knowledge of each other. After going through several couples the producer comes across Tony and Maria and pick them to be the other couple even though they had only recently started dating. A bombshell is dropped though as the producer tells them that he wants them to be the winner and gives them the questions in advance so that they will win. With their morality on the line they ultimately choose to go for it because of the grand prize cars. The show starts off with the couples neck and neck through the first few questions. Then the host starts asking the oddest questions that even married couples wouldnt know about each other. Nicky and Katie are dumbfounded and keep on getting the answers wrong. Meanwhile Tony and Maria dont miss any of them leading Nicky and Katie to think that the show might be rigged. Nicky confronts Tony but he denies it but you can tell the constant lying is starting to weigh heavily on both Maria and Tonys consciousness. It all comes down to the final round where if their answers for the last question are a match then they walk away each with a brand new car. They throw the final question and expose the game show as being fraudulent. The producer gets fired and Tony and Maria apologize to Katie and Nicky for lying to them and all is well in the Bayside love world.



    The second plot was that Belding and Screech decided to invest their combined finances into a motorcycle for them to share. With the bike not even broken in yet the idiot Screech goes joyriding with it and falls flat into a pile of mud to Beldings shock. Next he bets the bike against another dudes bike in a race and suprise, suprise the stupidest human being alive AKA Screech loses both the race and the bike. Belding confronts the man that won his bike and it turned out to be one of his former students. He reasons with the guy and gets his bike back saving Screech's ass for about the one billionth time.



    All in all neither storyline were amazing but the dating game show one was pretty good IMO. I like the moral dilemma that Tony and Maria faced and although it is SBTB where no one ever does anything wrong in the end, i really didnt know if they were going to pass up on the cars. Thats the main reason why i gave it the score i did. The Belding/Screech storyline was another useless and pointless throwaway plot that needs to go into a garbage can. Thats all for know folks and now its onto review number two for the night. Hope you all enjoy it...LOL.moreless
