♫ Zack Morris is trash
- [Narrator] Zack Morris won third in a track and meet
and mistakenly thinks his ribbon is something to brag about.
Slater shows up with a real trophy for winning
a wrestling championship, stealing Zack's thunder
and finally giving Kelly a suitor worthy of her Kelly hugs.
Zack deals with this like a man.
Just kidding, he turns into a total fucking psycho.
After a trophy ceremony, where Zack puts his dumb ribbon
in the trash where it belongs,
Zack meets Slater's father in the hall.
Salater's dad is looking for Principal Belding,
so Zack points him in the opposite direction of his office.
Because Zack got a great idea.
That idea, cramming his best friend into the principal's
filing cabinet to eavesdrop on a private
conversation so he can maybe use
that information for personal gain.
Papa Slater tells Belding he's transferring to Hawaii
and taking Slater with him.
Belding calls in Slater who tells his dad he's made
great friends at Bayside and isn't sure
if he can leave them.
Slater's dad tells him he can decided if they move.
Screech, who is unable to stand after Zack left him
trapped in a filing cabinet, breaks the news.
He adds that if Slater stays at Bayside,
Zack can consider himself a dead man with Kelly.
This gives Zack another great idea.
Then he abandons his injured friend for the second time
in one day, this time on a bathroom floor.
Zack's new great idea?
He tells the gang Slater is dying of a rare disease.
- It's called Mumbioquardrilation osis.
- [Narrator] That definitely doesn't sound made up
and the only possible cure is a clinic in Hawaii.
But, because Slater is dumb jock
who just want to hang out with his friends,
the only way he'll go is if everyone is super mean
to him in what might be his final days on earth.
Zack begins his gaslighting campaign
by telling the gang that symptoms of Slater's
condition include memory loss, itching, and sneezing.
Zack asks Slater why he wasn't at the weight room
last period when they made plans to be in the weight
room last period.
Slater doesn't remember making these plans
because they never made these plans,
this causes his friends to burst into tears
much to Zack's delight.
Zack shoves an armful of pepper up Slater's nose
making him sneeze.
Then he mercilessly dumps Screech's beloved
ant farm down Slater's shirt making him look
like he just smoked crack.
Having adequately terrified the gang into believing Slater
is on his deathbed, they go along with Zack's plan
to treat him like dog shit so he'll want to move to Hawaii.
They say super mean stuff to a friend
they think is terminally ill,
which is traumatic for all parties involved.
Then Zack casually reveals Slater's
prize trophy's been stolen.
Zack's sadistic game of human chess works
and Slater tells the gang.
- I'm moving to Hawaii.
- [Narrator] Then, Kelly drops this bomb.
- I'm going with him.
- [Narrator] Whoops bet you didn't see that one coming Zack.
Slater asks why she wants to go and Kelly says Zack
told her he's dying.
Slater goes along with it in the hopes
of teaching Zack a much-deserved lesson.
Slater tells Zack he changed his mind about Hawaii
but for some reason needs Zack to talk
to his dad who is already committed.
Slater's dad agrees to help teach Zack a lesson
and he finally confesses after being violently
terrorized and threatened by live grenade.
Meanwhile, the gang is throwing Slater a going away
party which Zack crashes to return the trophy he stole.
Slater reveals he wasn't sick and was playing
along to teach Zack a lesson, but because he was forced
to stoop to Zack's level, the friends he picked
over Hawaii are disgusted and turn backs on him.
Slater shows remorse, but Zack assures him it's fine
and they'll get over it.
Because, they always do,
because he always does shit like this.
Zack Morris crammed his best friend in a filing cabinet
causing potentially permanent spinal damage,
convinced the gang Slater was dying,
so they'd be dicks to him to make him move to Hawaii,
so he could eliminate his clearly superior
competition for dating Kelly, and didn't learn
any lesson from any of it.
Zack Morris is trash.
