In today's episode, Slater is wrestling with his future, but he is also wrestling like in the sport. Note the parallel.
Seems the Major had always dreamed that A.C. would go to West Point one day because that is their thing, but Slater would prefer to go to Iowa on a wrestling scholarship and blah blah blech. Also in today's episode, subterfuge involving Zack dressing like Rambo and describing an invasion of Canada (well imagine that, SbtB!), yet another college admissions officer visits the Max to make and disclose a major admissions decision, Saved by the Bell shines up two chestnuts with the "oops we're handcuffed together and I keep hitting my head with my hand so YOU keep hitting YOUR head with YOUR hand" and the "'I'm glad we had this talk' even though you did all the talking" bits. Bravo to that. Also, Mr. B and a congressman waste the taxpayer's valuable resources to teach a lesson to two kids, Jessie is racist against McDonalds employees, and Slater's dad pretty much sucks all around if you ask me.
Major Slater: My CO went AWOL with a GI from the PX. I gotta go ASAP. See you A.C.
Haha, those are all letters that stand for things, right?
Most Implausible Moment
You'd think a congressman would have his own office and wouldn't need to borrow a high school principal's office to conduct interviews. You'd think that because that is how things work in reality.
SbtB QotD's Guide to Where the Gang Went to College
Zack - Yale
Jessie - Columbia
Lisa - FIT
Slater - Iowa
Kelly - Community College and a job
Screech - either Emerson, USC, Clemson, Princeton, Duke, Cal. Tech, The Barbazon School for Modeling, or Hamburger University (though probably not Barbazon b/c he thought it was for building little plastic airplanes haha get it??)
Print that out and put it in your wallet too, OK?
Hey Abbott! Watch
Zack: "Slater, c'mon, tell him . . . Iowa?
Major Slater: "Iowa?"
Slater: "Yeah, uh, I owe-a Zack ten bucks."
Hahaha, third base! Tell the one about Miss Issippi's new jersey next!
Remember the 90s?! Watch
Congressman Shepherd: "Major Martin Slater -- your father?"
Zack (as Slater): "Oh, yeah yeah yeah -- I just call him Major Dad."
Today's Slaterism comes from Jessie.
Screech: "Looking good in that skirt, mama."
Jessie: "Why don't you go buy [note -- maybe 'bite'?] a stray dog?"
Saved by the Bell Subtly Imparts A Message
Mr Belding: "Sometimes the truth hurts, but, in the long run, lies hurt more."
Ok, Mr. B, I'll be honest -- Saved by the Bell blows.
You're right. That felt good.
