Katie wants to ask Nicky to the dance but, when he pressures her to ask him, she backs out and seeks another date. Eric wants a girl named Jennifer but she doesn't seem to know he exists. When he finds out she likes coin collecting, he pretends to share her interest to attract her. Meanwhile, Mr. Belding has trouble reading things so Screech convinces him to get an eye exam.
