  • Good but serious

    This was the 1st serious episode, but it was good!
  • Finally a serious episode.

    This episode was serious but funny, Slater has to make a choice to Hawaii or his friends for the rest of his life, another reason why I think Zack is pretty messed up, making his friends turn on him like that, stealing the trophy must really hurt, and the the girls get mad them at the end, when Zack was the real culprit. That made me pretty mad, I like how they had that friendly moment in the end. And I like the whole Slater dying lie, even though it was mean, it was very clever of Zack to think of that. An amazing episode.moreless

  • Warning: Contains spoilers.

    What happens when you make the son of a general very angry? Well, you get a series classic. This episode was hilarious in every way, and it deserves the 9.5/10. In fact, I might be changing this to 9.8/10. It's always fun to see Zack get his schemes turned back at him. This is a lesson you just have to learn in an every day thing.

    The plot is that Zack hears that Slater has a choice to go to Hawaii or stay at Palisades, California. Well, he decides to stay at Palisades, California. Zack, wanting Slater to leave decides to play a prank. He lies to the girls and say that Slater is dying and the girls have to convince Slater to move by being a jerk at him. That would make him want to leave. But, things go wrong when Slater figures out why everyone is being so mean to him. Well, everyone that he knows of course. Well, he does something to get back at Zack, but his dad would have to help him.

    This episode was very hilarious, and I enjoyed it so much.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Mr. Belding mentions that he was a National Guardsman in Indiana. Good Morning Miss Bliss, which this show spun-off of, took place in Indiana.

  • QUOTES (5)

  • NOTES (3)

    • This episode contains one of the clips in the 2nd season's opening credits that shows the three girls in their grass skirts hula dancing at The Max.

    • This episode contains one of the clips of Slater in the opening credits for all seasons. The clip is Slater towards the end of the episode wearing a Hawaiian shirt and sunglasses. He is at The Max at his goodbye dinner as everyone thought he was going to Hawaii.

    • This is the first episode with Zack using the "time-out" and "time-in". Such usage is similar to the alien powers that a girl character used in stopping and resuming the clock time, causing moving objects and people to freeze and unfreeze in the TV sitcom Out of This World.
