SBTB 01.10 - Beauty and the Screech

I can't help but make the connection between Zack Morris and Jerry Lewis's "The Nutty Professor."

And, I can't help but think that terrible singer Keith stole his X-Factor clothes idea from Mr. A.C. Slater.

But now let's talk about a real nerd: Dr. Mertz. Well, at least he was an actor playing a nerd.
Avery Schreiber played the science teacher. Then again, what hasn't he done? This guy has been a little bit of everywhere. He shared a comedy stage with Jack Burns. He added vocals to cartoons. He acted in movies and television up to his death in 2002. Homeboy was in Second City. Not a bad resume. And that mustache is excellent.

Sharing co-guest duties is robot Kevin, a machine that pops in from time to time. Kevin is voiced by Mike Lavelle, who pretty much does nothing else of note in Hollywood life. But at least he will have a Slinky neck to his credit:
I would not sleep with this in my room.
Goofs: I'm not sure if you noticed, but when the girls are eating lunch at the Max and talking about Screech, the camera uncharacteristically pulls out while on Lisa. It is weird. It then wobbles a few seconds later, again when on Lisa. I don't know if this was an isolated incident dealing with the one angle or if the camera in question was just allergic to characters with one-dimensional characters.

Later, Kelly picks up a menu with new crush Screech despite clearly having already ordered food (as seen in her conversation with the girls). She really must be smitten.
Not only does she already have food but, before she can order with Screech, Max brings out another item Kelly had ordered - a freaking malt.

And I have said it before and I'll say it again:
Dustin Diamond was not mistreated on Saved by the Bell. He canoodles so many freaking ladies.



Even President George H.W. Bush was impressed.
