♫ Zack Morris is Trash
- [Narrator] Zack Morris asks Mikey if he can borrow
$300 to replace his father's new video camera.
Zack accidentally dropped it off the roof
while secretly filming his twin teenage neighbors
Miss Bliss is teaching her class about the stock market.
The class invested $50 in a small airline that
recently merged with a larger airline,
pushing the price of the stock up three dollars
and generating $150 in profit for the class.
This gives Zack a great idea.
He asks Miss Bliss where he can learn more about stocks.
She says the library.
Then he asks Miss Bliss:
- Where is the library?
- [Narrator] The question every 8th grade teacher
dreams to hear.
Mylo tells Miss Bliss her beat up, old car is,
once again, leaking oil all over the parking lot.
Miss Bliss says she finally saved up enough of
her school teacher salary to buy a new car
that will be arriving in four days.
Zack and Mikey break into school at 6 AM.
Zack convinces Mikey to join his plan by promising
him enough money to buy a room full of video games,
a trip to Yankee stadium, and a private jet with
Justine Bateman from Family Ties as his personal stewardess.
And what's Zacks plan?
When he went to the library, for the first time in his life,
he read about a guy who made $300,000
in potato stocks in 15 minutes.
So Zack wants to sell all of the classes stock
without their permission and invest the money in potatoes.
When Mylo asks what they're doing at school this early
Zack says they're here for a special project.
Then he asks Mylo what he knows about potatoes.
Mylo says potatoes are the food of the nineties,
and it's National Potato Month, which is all Zack
needs to hear to commit fraudulent trading
before first period.
Zack convinces the rest of the class
to go along with his bold investment strategy
with this compelling sales pitch.
- Therefore, potatoes equal mega bucks.
- [Narrator] Lisa and Nikkie aren't sold,
so Zack tells them they'll make enough money
to pay for a Beverly Hills shopping spree
and a habitat for the endangered condor.
When Nikki's about to ask Miss Bliss what
she thinks of all this, Zack tells her it will
ruin the surprise when they use some of the money they make
to buy chrome rims for her new car.
Zack shows up the next day to announce their potato stock
has gone up $6,000, which comes to $300 per student.
The amount Zack needs to replace his father's video camera.
Zack says it won't be long before he's able to buy Malibu
and rename it Zack's Beach.
Mikey tells Zack they're playing a dangerous game.
They bought the potatoes on margin, which means if
the stock price drops they'll owe a lot of money.
Zack tells Mikey to relax, and they should wait
more hours to sell because he's got a great
feeling about these potatoes.
The price of potatoes plummets ten minutes later.
When Miss Bliss asks what's going on, Screech explains
Zack took it upon himself to take all the classes money
and invest it in potatoes.
But it wasn't just the classes money.
Because Zack bought the stock in Miss Bliss's name
on margin and then it crashed, Miss Bliss now owes $1,500.
Miss Bliss says this is the most dishonest behavior
she's ever seen and is no longer able to afford her new car.
Miss Bliss comes to class the next day
and apologizes for being, understandably, pissed off
that Zack made the whole class lose her hard-earned money.
Zack was going to sell his dirt bike to pay Miss Bliss back,
but now he doesn't have to.
Miss Bliss announces she now owns 3,000 pounds of potatoes,
and tells the class it's their new job to sell them,
so she can hopefully buy a car sometime next year.
So, now, instead of learning history and math,
the class is cold-calling people in the phone book
trying to sell them potatoes and Miss Bliss is stuck
driving a junker car that leaks oil.
Zack Morris broke his fathers video camera
spying on teenage girls.
Broke into school to commit fraudulent stock trading,
so he could invest the classes money in potatoes.
Convinced his classmates to go along with it
by promising impossible riches.
Got greedy after he made the money he needed.
And lost everything costing his teacher a car
and his classmates a decent education.
Zack Morris is trash.
