  • The episode starts with Zack getting put into detention because of his constant cell phone use during school hours. To make matters worse, there is a local radio station contest being held at The Max during the hours that Zacks in detention.

    The gang discovers that there is a local radio station broadcasting from The Max and they will be giving away two free ticks to Hawaii for the tenth caller. The gang try to discover their own methods on how to become that tenth caller. Zack and Screech come up with the best idea yet and pose as phone company workers. Although they say that theyre there to double check the phone, its really a ploy to have Screech monitor the incoming calls. Screech proceeds to block all the incoming calls until Zack calls and Screech puts him through. He is declared the winner as long as he gets to The Max by 4 o'clock to answer a few questions. Unfortunately Belding catches him on the phone and into detention he goes pretty much losing the Hawaii trip. While in detention Zack thinks of ways to get back the trip. He involves Slater, Tori, Lisa, and even Screech in his plans but none of them work out and worse yet they all too end up in detention. Zacks last desperation act is to fake like hes still in detention and sneak out to go to The Max to make it in time. He barely makes it and has to answer three Hawaii related questions to win the trip. He breezes through the first two but gets the third one wrong. The radio DJ said that the next person that walks through the door and answers the third question correctly will win the trip. To everyones surprise it ends up being Mr. Belding and he answers the question correctly. He wins the tickets and thanks Zack for the tickets, thinking that he had something to do with it. All in all it was one of those fun episodes where you really dont know what directions its going to head into at the end. I just cant get enough though of how big a dummy Screech is. I mean going back to Bayside to see what the first thing Zack would do if he went to Hawaii was so reminicent of the "All In The Mall" U2 episode where he loses his place in line to ask another stupid question thus solidifying his character as one of the most iditotic characters in television history.
