DISCLAIMER

Belongs to NBC. Takes place right after Zack learns that Kelly's switched her party to Friday instead of Saturday.

Zack blew out a breath and raked his hair with his fingers.

"What's wrong?" a voice asked.

"I've really messed up. And I didn't even mean to!" Zack answered, turning to see Cheryl and Deke.

"What happened?" Deke wondered.

"Mr. Belding was giving me a detention, and then he said that he'd forget it if I took out his niece on Friday," Zack began.

"Wait a minute. Belding blackmailed you?" Deke questioned.

"Yeah, but that's not the problem. The problem is that Kelly moved her party to Friday," Zack continued.

"Oh, that is a problem," Deke said.

"What are you going to do?" Cheryl wondered.

"The only thing I can do: get someone to go out with Belding' Niece in my place while I go to Kelly's party," Zack answered. He looked to Deke.

"Hey, don't look at me, man. I'm goin' to the bike show that night," his friend stated. He blew out a breath.

"I'm doomed," he said. "I mean…I have a chance to really show Kelly how I feel about her, and I can't 'cause I have to take out Belding's niece, and there's no way I can be in two place at--" his rant trailed off as he realized what he was saying. "Two places at once? That's it!" he shouted.

"What's it?" Deke and Cheryl chorused.

"I gotta talk to Screech! See ya, guys!" Zack answered, running off. Cheryl and Deke looked at each other.

"What just happened here?" Cheryl wondered. Deke let out a noise of confusion and shrugged his shoulders.
