  • Quotes

    • Mr. Belding: Listen up, everybody, because 2 weeks from tonight, we are holding the annual Miss Bayside Beauty Pageant!
      (the students cheer)
      Zack: Hey! (chants) Swimsuits! Swimsuits!
      All male students: Swimsuits! Swimsuits! Swimsuits! Swimsuits!
      Mr. Belding: (calms them down) All right. All right. All right. The lucky winner will then go on to compete for the title of Miss High School California!
      (the students applaud, but Jessie is not appalled)
      Jessie: A beauty pageant? What a stupid, sexist waste of time!
      Slater: Not if you're in a teeny bikini, Mama!

    • Zack: Yea, well she is going to regret refusing my offer.
      Slater: Come on preppy, you know as much about Beauty Pageants as I do about wearing pantyhose.

    • Jessie: It's not a beauty contest anymore.
      Kelly: That's right. You entered it.

    • Screech: Hey, Zack, wanna see me drink a milkshake through my nose?

    • Guy: Did you here what happened to screech last night?
      Twin 1: What?
      Twin 2: What?
      Guy: Slater Dropped Screech off the roof of the school.
      Twin 1: No Kidding.
      Twin 2: No Kidding.

    • Jessie: Entering a man makes a statement.
      Mr. Belding: You want a statement? Here's one: No Way, Jose!

    • Mr. Belding: You can't enter a man.
      Zack: I'm not entering a man, I'm entering Screech.
