Stop the drilling! Stop the oil!

This post is waaay overdue. This BP oil spill business is out of control. And yesterday another oil spill very close to home.  And now Eric's secretary is in a coma. What's with this? Nevertheless, this sensitive topic of course makes me think of SBTB. We all remember the Oil Spill episode. The gang "adopts" pets from the school's pond and care for them in their science class. Zack becomes particularly attached to a duck he names Becky. (Coincidentally Becky is also Mr. Belding's wife's name..hmmm?). One beautiful afternoon, Slater saunters into the locker room covered in oil. What happened? They were doing some work on the football field and they struck oil!  At first, the gang is thrilled, imagining a "Better Bayside" where money is no object and the teachers wait on the students. Jessie and Kelly are the only ones against it, chaining themselves to a giant oil derrick (where did they get that?) and chanting, "Stop the drilling! Stop the oil!".  A nerd named Franklin also joins in with his own original cheer, "Stop the shouting, give me a kiss!".  But do they listen to the ever-protesting, tree-hugger Jessie? Noooo.

Zack, Mr. B and Becky the Duck pre-oil spill

Inevitably during the drilling, an "accident" happens covering all the precious animals in oil. Now the gang can see the real danger in all this oil business. Not only is the wildlife in danger, but the school campus will be littered with unsightly oil derricks. Zack comes through and saves the day with a dramatic presentation for the school board, complete with squirting oil on the shirt of the oil company representative. Lo and behold, he saves Bayside once again!  The episode ends with everyone participating in the group high five that was later featuring in the opening credits.

"She's where the oil can't hurt her now"

The moral of the story is that we need to get Jessie Spano down to the Gulf Coast to rally the troops in a  rousing cheer of "Stop the drilling! Stop the oil!". That should solve everything.

I missed him...

I found out tonight that Mark-Paul aka Zack Morris was at a local watering hole last night...I cannot believe I missed it and even worse that he didn't call me! I mean, didn't he read this post where I specifically said "call me!"??  Apparently I need to be on Twitter to find out about these things so I am signing up immediately. I will just call it blog research.

Tweet you later!
