The Time Zack Morris Got Jessie Hooked On Caffeine Pills

November 30, 2019

♪ 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)

    I remember watching this episode. I was 13 maybe and I thought it was ridiculous that she was a basically a meth/coke/crack head but they watered down the storyline and used caffeine pills instead of using illicit substances. I'm 36 now and I think it's even stupider, but for a kid to question it…

    These "very special episodeS" Are fucking AWESOME. I remember seeing every single one of these growing up and thinking just how realistic and brave they were to confront such serious matters like drinking, drugs, death and peer pressure. Then years later I use to watch old VHS copies with my friends while getting high as hell and just laughing so damn hard that I realized the real danger wasnt the "realistic portrayals" of teen life, but it was from laughing so hard I could cause a serious hernia. Oh these episodes were special all right, just not at all in the way the show creators intended. Thanks 80s and 90s TV for attempting to tackle serious issues and failing SPECTACULARLY.

    Zack Morris is Trash Episode Data

    8th Grade: 4 episodes
    9th Grade: 14 episodes
    10th Grade: 10 episodes
    11th Grade: 5 episodes
    12th Grade: 7 episodes

    Conclusion: Zack was at his “trash” peak in 9th Grade but became less shittier as he got older. We must applaud his evolution.

  • Reply jkincaid582 August 24, 2019 at 5:31 pm

    Eh, I get the point of the series, but in this case, no most of this wasn't specifically Zach's fault. Ok sure, he had a scheme, that was his schtick. But Jesse was already feeling pressure, hence her downing coffee like it was going out of style. He didn't provide or encourage her to take her pills, and he was essentially just wrapped up in himself and didn't realize how bad Jesse was. Then, when he finally saw what was going on, he actually stopped her from taking the pills. And now I've written a paragraph defending a fictional character. Go me.

    For anyone thinking cafeïne isn't that bad,…well it isn't.
    But if you're sensitive to it, it can make you act like Jessie did.
    I have ADHD and I once got offered a can of Monster Energy Rehab ( Rehab! )
    Part of me chose to drink it, but I was also encouraged by the friend, because he thought it'd be "funny" to see "what'd happen."
    I ran through the city with my friend and back home in the train I started crying, meowing, laughing my bum off, meowing again, crying about cats I did not own and the trainstation being filthy and my overall dissapointment in humanity.
    He thought I was joking, but I sincerely wasn't. I remember I was shaking and hyperventilating and burst into giggles and then into tears, about nóthing. It was ridiculous.

    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.
