A serious episode in the series and not played up to be funny. The Tori scenario produced a couple of quality episodes. Zack under the advice of Tori decides to participates in a teen line for school. He breaks the rules though when Zack decides to date the person who has called in. He's not the only one though as Screech finds what he thinks is a cool brother but that ends up being a nightmare.
Zack meets his date Melissa Donohue and sees that she is in a wheelchair. Zack lets his mouth run away with him leading to a lot of poltically correct things for him to say. When the two are at movie he tells one "would you mind slouching, my date is in a wheelchair", and during a basketball game Zack comes up with a nasty message about Melissa being the only one in a wheelchair.
Melissa then tells Zack that Zack should just treat her as he would a normal girl. This is a great episode that shows the type of stuff that disable go through and the kind of
overprotection that really annoys them.
I thought the actress playing Melissa was great and this episode is another character building episode for Zach who finally learns his lesson at the end.
