- [Narrator] Jessie is frantically guzzling coffee
so she can stay awake to study for a geometry midterm.
She tells Zack her dream is to go to Stanford
and she needs straight A's to get in.
Zack's not worried about the midterm
because he says he always sits next to a nerd and cheats.
Lisa and Kelly tell Jessie to relax,
because the midterm isn't until Friday,
and they play a song on the jukebox
they can all sing along to.
Zack sees this nice moment
and instantly wants to turn it
into a way for him to get rich.
He says a friend of his dad is a record producer
looking to sign a girl group.
Zack says he'll be their manager
and they'll make a fortune.
Zack asks them to drop everything
and go audition for this strange man right now.
But Jessie says she doesn't have time.
You know, because of the whole studying
and dream of going to Stanford thing
she was literally just talking about.
They tell Zack they just sing to relieve stress
and have fun, usually in the lockers.
This gives Zack a great idea.
Jessie is spreading herself too thin
and gets a C on a quiz.
Lisa and Kelly console her, telling her it's just a quiz,
and she can make it up on the midterm.
Slater offers to help her study.
Zack is ready to act on his great idea.
- Get your recorder.
You're going to the girls' locker room.
- [Narrator] Yikes.
Zack sends Screech undercover into the girls' locker room
to trick the girls into singing into a concealed microphone.
Slater is helping Jessie study,
when Zack barges in through the window
to announce his record producer contact
loves their locker room demo
and wants to play it for his boss.
Jessie is outraged Zack would record them like that,
until Zack tells her the producer liked her voice the best,
which is certainly a lie, because all the girls
were singing at the same time into a broomstick.
After Zack leaves, Slater sees Jessie has been taking
caffeine pills to stay awake.
Slater warns Jessie these pills are very strong
and potentially dangerous.
Jessie, overwhelmed by the pressures of school
and her new music career, ignores his advice.
Zack shows up the next day with big news.
The record label loved the demo,
but there are three other girl groups
they were considering signing.
Zack says they'll make up the label's mind for them
by creating a music video to show off
their hot teenage bodies.
Jessie says she doesn't have time
because of her many academic commitments.
Zack tells Jessie she can't let everyone down.
Jessie succumbs to Zack's peer pressure,
then takes more caffeine pills.
The girls shoot an absolutely insane music video
that takes up hours of valuable study time,
with intricate choreography, multiple wardrobe changes,
aerial acrobatics, and a whole lot of butts.
It's mostly butts.
The creeps at the record label unsurprisingly like the butts
and want to see the girls perform live at The Max tomorrow,
which means rehearsal tonight.
Jessie says the midterm is tomorrow
and she needs to study tonight,
but once again gives into Zack's pressure.
Slater finds caffeine pills in Jessie's backpack
and tries one more time to express his concern.
Jessie tells him to mind his own business,
then shows up to the midterm the next day
tweaking out of her mind on caffeine pills
and visibly scaring everybody but Zack.
Slater asks to talk to Zack, who is in a rush because
his girls are playing at The Max that night.
Slater says Jessie has a real problem.
She's hooked on caffeine pills,
and he's very worried about her.
But instead of taking Slater seriously,
Zack says they're probably just vitamins,
and says he doesn't want to hear it, and storms off.
The girls have one last rehearsal at The Max,
and even though Jessie is clearly in the middle
of a manic episode, Zack completely ignores
what's right in front of him,
because he wants to use these girls to get rich.
Zack finds Jessie passed out in her room that night
and tells her it's time to go to The Max.
She's delirious, and doesn't know
what day it is or what's going on.
When Zack still tries to drag her to perform,
Jessie freaks out and goes to grab her caffeine pills.
Zack scolds her for taking drugs and acts surprised,
even though Slater just told him about this hours ago.
This pushes Jessie over the edge,
and she completely loses her shit.
- I'm so excited!
I'm so excited!
- [Narrator] Definitely not Stanford material.
Jessie misses the performance and tells her friends
her mom is taking her to counseling tomorrow,
because the pressure Zack put on her
turned her into a drug addict
with a psychotic mental breakdown.
Zack Morris saw his friends having fun
and wanted to use it as a way to get rich.
And when they wouldn't go along with it,
he sent Screech into the girls' locker room
to record them without their permission,
then trampled all over Jessie's academic priorities
and dreams of going to Stanford
with endless selfish distractions
that pushed her to drug addiction,
and ignored her cries for help
and warning signs from her real friend,
until it was too late and she had
a total mental and emotional collapse.
All because he looked at his friends
as a quick way to make some money.
Zack Morris is trash.
