  • NOTES (3)

    • Jeffrey Biederman, the kid who Josie said she glued macaroni up his nose, is a story writer for several episodes.

    • Guide Listings:

      While working in his lab Professor Z drops some pencils, while he reaches down to pick them up a wormhole appears and pulls his head into it. Fortunately, Professor Z is able to remove himself in time, the bad news is he has lost his memory as a result of the encounter, and he has a meeting scheduled with Vaughn's father over whether he is qualified to stay as a teacher.


      Professor Zachary's memory is wiped out by a close call with the vortex, and he's due for a review by the school board, so the Science Club tries to find a cure. (TV Guide Listings)


      The vortex wipes out chunks of professor Zachary's memory. (MSN TV Listings)

    • Learned: Soundwaves and vibration. Brain functions of the hippocampus and Cerebral Cortex. Islands of memory.


    • Lucas, Vaughn and Professor Z refer to the TV show Gilligan's Island after Lucas tries to recover Z's memory by hitting him on the head.
      Gilligan's Island tells the story of a group of people who are stranded on a deserted island. Most episodes deal with the castaways trying to get off the island, but their attempts seem to always be foiled by Gilligan.

      In the mentioned episode, Gilligan loses his memory after getting hit on his head by a coconut, and afterwards his memory recovers when he's hit again. Lucas thinks that this technique might work in Professor Z's case.
