Lookin' good, ladies.
Thanks, Mr.
Russo.
School spirit's really gonna suffer if I'm off the cheerleading squad.
What are you talking about? My chemistry grade.
If I don't ace Mr.
Russo's next test, I'm on academic probation.

We better wrap it up so Jess can go and study.

Just a few more cheers.

Russo's password.
Yes.
OK.
Molecular structure no.
No.
No, no, no.
OK.
(mutters) (clacks) My God.
What's this? Oh, no.
That's so romantic.
I can't believe it.
I totally forgot.
Happy anniversary, Liz.
Todd, you're so sweet, remembering a day like today.
Enid.
I just meant remembering Oh.
That I have to go.
Bye.
Todd, this is a real surprise.
I thought our anniversary was What? Later.
Anniversaries are such a vague thing.
I mean, when do they really start? Is it from the first day we went out or kissed? You forgot.
I didn't forget.
You just miscalculated.
It's-It's Wednesday.
OK, Wednesday, then.
Check it out.
Russo and Principal Cooper's secretary are an item.
Where'd you hear that? Russo's computer files.
Here, take a look.
It's a love letter that he wrote to Rosemary.
I thought the teachers' files had security passwords.
I broke his code.
Whoa.
That means you can get in all his class stuff and everything.
Poor Mr.
Russo.
This is really personal.
And confidential.
You better be careful, Eggman.
This is an invasion of privacy.
I know.
Isn't it great? Man, I can't wait to get this baby photocopied.
(woman on TV) most popular items recently on the Home Sales Force Network I can't believe I forgot our anniversary.
I have to get him something really special.
one-of-a-kind novelty Enid.
Hello? Oh, my God.
I got that last week.
A porcelain pig? It comes in five colors.
I got it in ecru.
Enid, all they have on this show is junk.
(man) And now our next item.
Tell me this isn't special.
Personally autographed Shaquille O'Neal basketball shoes That's it! You were saying? Thanks.
Whoa, Eggman.
What's this? Advertising for friends? At least I don't have to buy them, Patman.
That reminds me, Bruce.
I haven't received my check this week.
Winston, just the man I was looking for.
Here you go.
I heard about this letter.
You got it from Mr.
Russo's computer files, huh? I prefer not to reveal my sources.
Come on, Winston.
You can tell me.
I bet you saw a lot of juicy stuff in there.
Mostly just chemistry junk.
I kinda lucked out.
Don't be so modest.
You're a genius.
Can I tell you something personal? There comes a time in a woman's life when she can't deny herself.
She needs a man.
I've dreamed of those times.
With a woman, I mean.
Well, Winston, this is your lucky day because I need you.
You have no idea how long I've waited to hear those words.
I really appreciate you tutoring me, Winston.
I've made flashcards for the entire table of elements.
That's really cute.
Are you thirsty? No.
Are you? How kind of you to offer.
Water will be fine.
H2O, comin' right up.
Ah, here we go.
In a tall glass.
Water in a tall glass comin' up.
And here we go.
(mutters) Where's Russo's password? With ice.
Ice, ice.
Where's that password? Water, tall, on the rocks.
With a lemon, if you don't mind.
Not a problem at all.
( whistling) Hi, Winston.
Did a package arrive for me today? What package? Todd's present.
They promised to deliver today.
What are you doing? I don't know what you're talking about.
Come on, Winston, we're outta here.
Let's go someplace where we can be alone.
This isn't exactly what I had in mind.
Really? I find it so stimulating.
Stimulated is good.
I just can't help myself, I guess.
Computers turn me on.
All that inputting and outputting.
Oh, boy.
Why don't you show me your stuff, Winston? Stuff? Come on.
I'm dying to see how you broke into Russo's private files.
Well, I didn't exactly break into his For me? OK.
(typing) Do you know it? Well, Russo's password was a cinch.
He's a soccer fanatic, so I just picked the top guy ever Pelé.
What do you mean, next Friday? They promised me I'd have them here today.
Now what am I gonna do? All right, thanks.
Ohh Hi, Todd.
Happy anniversary.
I can't take this.
Sorry.
What do you mean? The funniest thing happened the other day when I was reading my diary.
And guess what.
Our anniversary isn't today.
It's next Friday.
I'm such an idiot.
Begin.
So many questions, they're all trying to decide She's got a secret up her sleeve The clock is draggin' as she'd rather take a ride Count every second till she leaves 'Cause she's got the answers Always wantin' some kind of key Yeah, she's got the answers And she's also got a hold on me She'll be ready when they put her to the test She's got her knowledge in a safe place Wonders what she'll do tonight Maybe buy a dress Already finished first in this race 'Cause she's got the answers Always holdin' some kind of key Yeah, she's got the answers And she's also got a hold on me And she's also got a hold on me And she's also got a hold on me Time.
(students groan) Put your pencils down and pass your papers forward.
Let's go.
Come on, right up front.
First person in the front.
(Enid) I flunked.
I just know it.
Enid, you're out of control.
No, I'm not.
Bring me another shake.
Make it a double.
I don't know why you're obsessing, Enid.
The exam was a piece of cake.
A piece of cake.
I'll have a piece of cake, too.
Hey, Jessica, now that Russo's exam is over, what do you say we go celebrate? Get lost, Winston.
But but Forget her, Eggman.
She's a piranha.
They eat their own.
And now the moment you've all been waiting for.
Some of you actually studied this time.
Some of you didn't.
C-? This reeks.
Like sulfur dioxide, Mr.
Lopez.
I hope we can do better next time.
If "we" really cared, "we" would've given us an easier test.
Miss Wakefield, your A+ blew the curve right off the map.
That's quite a comeback after last month's F.
It was nothing, really.
(bell rings) All right! This means you're off probation.
Was there any doubt? All right, chapter six through eight, people.
Six through eight.
Bye.
Bye-bye.
See you later.
Bye.
Miss Wakefield, I'd like to see you alone.
Yes, Mr.
Russo? Yes.
Somebody pulled a copy of the test off my computer.
Do you know anything about that? You think I stole it? From an F to an A.
I'd like to believe you, Jessica, but I'm a man of science.
I don't believe in miracles.
But I didn't do it.
Jessica, this is a serious offense.
The penalty for cheating on exams is suspension.
What if I told you who did it? Winston Egbert.
Do you realize what a serious accusation you've made? Winston Egbert is my best student.
I'm not buying it, Jessica.
As of now, you are suspended.
I can prove it.
Does this sound familiar? "Dearest Rosemary" It was supposed to be a joke.
Ha.
I'm not laughing.
And cheating isn't funny, either.
Cheating? What are you talking about? This letter was taken from my computer.
So was the test.
I'm sorry, Winston, but as of this afternoon, you are suspended for one week.
I guess it's not that bad.
It's just suspension.
I just won't be getting that scholarship I wanted, and I probably won't graduate high school.
That means my career in medicine's out.
In fact, I'll have no future, no money, no friends, no life, and before you know it, I'll be eating out of a Dumpster.
I'm doomed! It's so unfair.
I'm sorry, Winston.
Look on the bright side.
You don't have to go to school for a whole week.
Todd.
I'm trying.
Don't worry about it.
No one will even notice.
Hey, Egg-fail, I've got a job for you.
I'm not in the mood, Patman.
How about you restring my rackets? Yeah, we hear you're gonna have a lot of free time on your hands.
Don't pay any attention to them, Winston.
They don't count as people.
I just don't get it.
I didn't steal that test.
That's not what everyone's saying.
Who else knows Russo's password? No one.
Just Russo and me.
You didn't tell your ex-student, did you? It might've slipped out.
You told Jessica? (laughs) You're unbelievable.
Do you have an ounce of decency? I'm sorry.
Next time I'll pour it in a glass.
I'm talking about Winston.
Look, things didn't work out.
It happens all the time.
He'll get over me someday.
Do you realize he's been suspended? Oh, really? What did he do? Supposedly, he stole the test from Mr.
Russo.
I find it very odd.
You got an A and the guy who tutored you had to cheat? Just what are you getting at? Winston doesn't need to cheat.
Oh, little Miss Ace Reporter cracks a case again.
You take so much pleasure in always knowing the truth.
Fine.
I stole the test.
Happy? And you're letting Winston take the fall for it? He's the one who broke into the files.
He's as guilty as I am.
Besides, I can't get suspended.
The squad needs me.
Who needs Winston? I'm not gonna let you get away with this.
I already have.
Don't you think it's a little strange that your number-one student suddenly had to cheat? I'll admit it.
I was a little amazed by this whole thing.
Did you ever consider that someone maybe set up Winston? Mm.
But all the evidence points towards him.
Mr.
Russo, Winston didn't cheat on your test.
He's innocent, and I can prove it.
Little surprise for you, folks.
There's a new test tomorrow.
I'm sorry, I'm sorry.
But we all know the last test was stolen, so for those of you who did well, you have nothing to worry about.
For those of you who didn't, this is your chance to redeem yourselves.
You hear that, Manny? Shut up, Wilkins.
Now, class, this is gonna hurt me a lot more than it's gonna hurt you.
(bell ringing) (boy) Yeah, right.
Well, maybe not.
Dismissed.
(students groaning) Man, I can't believe we have to do this again.
Does it ever end? Quit whining, Manny.
Why don't you try studying for a change? Hey, someone left the faculty-supply room open.
Free toner.
Cool.
Geek.
OK.
What's that guy's name again? Polo? This is so annoying.
Paulo? Pepe? Pelé? That's it.
Pelé.
Access denied? But I'm sure that was it.
(electronic voice) Gotcha.
What? Look behind you.
What? Excellent graphics, Eggman.
Thanks.
What are you doing here? I think you called it "ace reporting.
" Jessica, you and I have to talk.
We do? In Principal Cooper's office.
Winston, I expect to see you back in class tomorrow.
You got it, Mr.
Russo.
Thanks.
OK.
And after school, we can talk about the letter incident.
In detention.
Right.
It's Friday.
Are you excited? Are you kidding? This has been the anniversary from hell.
Poor Todd.
Well, did you get his gift? It finally came this morning.
Good luck.
You really missed a lot this week.
Are you kidding? I talked on the phone, laid out by the pool, watched all my soaps and worked out.
I didn't miss a thing.
Whoever made up suspension as a punishment was an idiot.
I'm glad you feel that way, 'cause you've got two week" probation from cheerleading.
What? Oh, and here's your make-up work history, math, English, drama, and of course, chemistry.
It'll take me all year to catch up.
Whatever.
Winston, do you have a minute? Uh-huh.
I have the tiniest favor to ask you.
Sure, Jessica.
No problem.
Oh, great.
I have three papers you need to write for me.
Yeah, that'll happen.
Yes.
But I thought we meant something to each other.
Happy anniversary I hope.
Happy anniversary.
So you're sure about the date? Absolutely.
This is our true anniversary.
I mean, Monday was the first time you asked me out, Wednesday was our first date And today? Today was the first time we did this.
Wow.
I'd like to have a lot more of these anniversaries.
OK, I admit I forgot, but it'll never happen again, 'cause I'll never forget this day.
Oh, my God, they're beautiful.
Do you like them? I love them.
Thanks.
And now No way! Shaquille O'Neal originals! Autographed.
Liz, you're incredible.
I don't know what to say.
They're both left feet.
I'm gonna kill those guys! Look right down any crowded hall You see there's a beauty standing Is she really everywhere Or a reflection? Sweet Valley Sweet Valley High Meet you at Sweet Valley High Sweet Valley Sweet Valley High Meet you at Sweet Valley High
