4. Slater and Iowa
Hands-down, the best line in this episode is still A.C. saying, “I-owe-a Zack five bucks.” Not sure why that’s actually forever engraved into our brains, but it’s a classic move by Zack for taking Slater’s cash when he tries to tell his hard-nosed, no-nonsense Dad about getting a wrestling scholarship to powerhouse Iowa.
Sidenote: Can we talk about how Slater got into Iowa, Jessie somehow wanted to go to Stansbury (we’re convinced it’s a knock-off Stanford) and Zack getting into Yale because he got a 1,600 on his SATs yet did no work all of high school? Yeah, they all ended up going to the same school thoughâ€”don’t think we forgot the College Years.
Anyway, Zack dresses up as Slater for some bogus reason, gets in trouble and the episode ends with Slater convincing his Dad to let him go to Iowaâ€”though, as mentioned above, he never actually does.
Even More Uncoachable Stuff
