Storyline

The school year is ending. Over Ken's objections, Nick joins his new girlfriend, Sara, at the bowling alley's disco night. Lindsay receives an unexpected academic honor that puts her in a funk, so Mr. Rosso loans her the Dead's "American Beauty" to clear her head. Rosso punishes Daniel, who was about to break the law, by assigning him to the AV unit, where the geeks hang out; they resent the intrusion of someone cool, and Daniel is convinced he'll never do anything well. Sam wants to stop doing geek things, so he's crossing Dungeons and Dragons off his list. Where does friendship fit? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Goofs

In the ending sequence after the VW bus takes a right turn to set off to the open road, a modern sleek looking 1990s era Chevy Astro van is seen approaching in the opposing lane. The usual method taken by the production for open street scenes was to use a short lens to place out of time vehicles out of focus from being recognized. See more »
