The Time Zack Morris Got Jessie Hooked On Caffeine Pills

The Time Zack Morris Got Jessie Hooked On Caffeine Pills

♪ Zack Morris is trash ♪ (bell ringing) – [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! I’m so… scared! – [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. Let’s review: 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. ♪ Zack Morris is trash ♪ (bell ringing)

  1. It would be a real kicker if Zach Morris got sent to a prison in Colorado… served out his sentence, and wound up at a Barnyard Dance in a little hick town called South Park, and had sex with a woman named Liane.

  2. Zack didn't make her do anything. She was losing her shit before he pushed the music stuff. She also got the pills on her own. Missed the mark with this one.

  3. To be honest, the episode was so heartbreaking. Watching Jessie (honestly my least favourite character) have a complete breakdown because of too many things was hard to watch. What's worse is that Fresh Prince had the same theme and it had a even worse and tragic turn. I couldn't even focus on how awful Zach was because I was so scared throughout the entire episode for Jessie. This was also the first episode of Saved by the Bell I ever saw.

  4. Didn't Carlton from Fresh Prince of Bell Air took some pills Will gave him and end up in hospital? I remember an episode of Family Ties where Alex P. Keaton ( Michael J. Fox ), took speed when he was in college and missed an important exam . Wow, it seems like NBC sitcoms in the 80s and 90s dealt a lot with the dangers of amphetamines.

  5. To be fair she was already taking those pills before the singing. And she could have just said no to the extra on her plate but she still decided on the pills before zack and after Slater lol

  6. Fuck all what a stupid show. Now I know where key and peele got the "I'm so excited!!" Line for the slap ass sketch. Elizabeth Berkley is still smokin however.

  7. When you consider that writers had originally intended for her to develop an addiction to meth, you have to accept Zack really is trash.

  8. I’m pretty sure she was already taking the caffeine pills before this episode…

    And to be fair, what else are you supposed to do when you see someone pull out drugs right in front of you? Kindly ask them to put it down? You’re first reaction is obviously going to be to knock it from their hand and say what the hell are you doing.

    Jessie had mental heath issues before doing any of this. Zach didn’t make her addicted to anything.

  9. Last night watched Jessie in Show Girls, horrible movie, but damn was she hot with the very small pasties and not much more …sold out her carrier for a pay check. Although I would have preferred Kelly playing that role – that's a DVD I'd buy and watch on repeat.

  10. Technically Zack did not tell her to take any drugs. While I do know Zack is an ass on many occasions, he was also equally a nice guy. Probably was a sociopath. Either way, he didn't force her to do it. What you learn in drug counciling is that no one put a gun to your head and forced you to take drugs.

  11. SBTB was a guilty pleasure of mine. But getting older & after watching theses  you realize just how much of a douche Zack was. He constantly bashed Screech. Used and verbally abused the Slater. Kelly & Jesse & used them for his own gain & was horrible to MR Belding & other  Bayside students.  Just wish there was an episode where everybody he abused beat the shit out of  him.

  12. “I’M SO EXCITED! I’m so excited! I’m so….. scared…..”

    I laughed my balls off when a I saw this decades ago, LMAO! 😂 😆

  13. Whenever they would show up to their house they would act like it was normal. If my friend showed up in my house I would be very confused

  14. Dude was actually the hero in this he stopped her in the end and she was already taking the pills before he set up the music gig

  15. Ironic how this episode alludes to the fact that there will be times when were overpccuppied to the point of needing something to help……like crystal meth.

    Yet now as adults, we NEED caffeine in order to NOT have to do crystal meth. It would have been much more effective and realistic of this episode was about meth instead of caffeine

  16. This video made me remember when I was 14 and I told my friends, who were in a band, that I would be their manager… despite me not knowing shit about managing anything, let alone a band. I never got anybody hooked on caffeine pills though.

  17. lol why are yall deleting comments on this? i just pointed out that you cant blame anyone for another persons drug use.

  18. Fun fact: the set of bayside high would later be used in icarly and thats so raven(which ironically also has a school named bayside high that the main charecters went)

  19. Zack was selfish. Screech was an enabler. Kelly was oblivious. Jessie was neurotic. Lisa was a snob. Slater was a dick. However, when they realized who they hurt, they tried to fix it.

  20. Zack never got Jessie hooked on caffeine pills. You're obviously hooked on crack you lying sack of crap.
