  • A nice episode that took place in the mall.

    This marked the only episode in the original series' history that took place in the mall. The New Class would go on to use the mall as a main spot for plots. They used the mall almost as much as they used the school.

    This episode has Screech mess up and failing to get U2 concert tickets. The gang (minus Jessie) end up finding a bag full of money next to a bench. They plan on using it to buy tickets, sell them for a profit, and return the money. Little do they know that the money belongs to two guys. The two guys end up stalking them throughout the episode. The gang ends up catching on and get scared thinking they are hit men. The episode ends with the whole thing being a set up by a hidden camera television show and in the end they recieve front row tickets to the U2 concert for unwillingly participating in the show.moreless
  • I like this episode because it’s different from most of the other episodes.

    This episode was set out in the mall, usually it’s set out at school, so it made it different. It was exciting because you didn’t know what was going to happen because they found some money and were trying to hide from some men. This was also a funny episode. Everyone was accusing each other for the problem they were in. One of the funniest bits and one of my favorite bits was when Screech was spent the night in front of the ticket counter so that he could be the first one in line for a ticket to the concert the next day. And when they found out that it was a TV show they were on there faces were soo funny.moreless

    • This is the seventh episode where the entire gang excluding Dennis Haskins was not in school, the Max, or any places as they were in the school episodes, as they were in the mall.

    • In a rare break with tradition, the sounds of the movie heard in the theater are not the typical ones heard in all other episodes. The car chase, gun shots, and screams. They are altered in this episode because Zack and Slater's lines "interact" with the dialogue on the screen.

    • This is the second episode Elizabeth Berkeley (Jessie) missed due to an injury on the set. The other was "Rockumentary." Dennis Haskins also does not appear in this episode, even though they are both credited.
