Saved by the Bell: Pipe Dreams

At first I thought this would be the episode about marijuana but no that one is called “No Hope with Dope” and it is for another day. In this episode, we meet Becky, the duck.

Becky the duck is very important because she’s going to teach us about the environment. Becky lives in the pond behind the football field at Bayside High School.

One day, Zack hit Becky with a baseball and decided to nurse her back to health out of guilt and his general good-nature.

One special day, the construction workers installing a new goalpost on the Bayside football field struck oil. Black Gold. Texas Tea. According to California State Education Laws, the public school of Bayside gets to keep all of the oil money.

Meanwhile, Becky has begun to feel better and can return to her home habitat!

But on the very day that Becky returns home, the oil rig behind the Bayside football field spills into the pond.

Becky died that day.

But Zack and all of his friends learned a very valuable lesson, and vowed to keep the oil people from ruining their high school.

Very Special Lesson: Parents don’t care when the school board votes to have their children attend class alongside oil derricks.
