Meet you at Sweet Valley High Sweet Valley Sweet Valley High Meet you at Sweet Valley High Sweet Valley Sweet Valley High Meet you at Sweet Valley High Sweet Valley Sweet Valley High Liz, you've gotta help me.
I'm in a crisis.
Uh-huh.
Jeremy and Trevor asked me out on the same night, but I can't decide.
I mean, Jeremy is the cuter of the two, right? No way.
Hmm.
Maybe you're right.
Plus, Trevor is on the football team and his brother's in a fraternity.
Oh, my God.
I know.
Can you imagine how many parties we're gonna be asked out to? This is incredible.
But Jeremy is a better dresser, and he has a car that I'd look great in.
Unbelievable.
What? You think I'm being too superficial? Appearances are very important.
I mean, Trevor has those bushy eyebrows.
That's horrible.
But he trims them, so it's not that bad.
So what do you think I should do? Liz? Are you listening to me? What? You are completely ignoring me.
I'm sorry.
I'm just really into this article.
A woman saved seven people from a burning building last night.
So? She carried them out one by one.
What's your point? I just don't think I'd have the guts to do something really heroic like that in an emergency.
Well, obviously not.
I'm having an emergency here right now, and you're not helping at all.
I'm sorry.
What were you asking me? Trevor or Jeremy? What? Did they both ask you out? Everybody knows Trevor has hairy shoulders, and Jeremy is a complete snob.
I guess you're right.
They're both losers.
Thanks for your help.
Ew.
Let's stop by the mall on the way home.
I can't.
I'm going to the lake to get some pictures for my photojournalism project.
Wanna come? Sure.
Got nothing else to do.
Besides, you couldn't ask for a better subject.
Ready to go? Yeah.
You're going? Liz is gaining the benefit of my expertise.
I'd be happy to tutor you too, Jess.
Ew.
You coming or not? Let's see.
You and Winston at the lake.
Absolutely nothing to do.
You guys go ahead.
The whole point of action photography is to take things while they happen.
Nothing to it.
Boy, that's action for you.
A sitting duck? Let's go, Quick Draw.
Every time In my mind All I see Picture perfect Is you and me Look, look at that! Picture perfect I can't help this frame of mind I'm stuck in now Focusing on nothing else but you Picture perfect Picture perfect Picture perfect Check that out.
Picture perfect It's beautiful Picture perfect Especially I'm starting to get the hang of this.
When it's for me Picture perfect Picture perfect Whoa! I'm starting to get the hang of this.
I think I got some good pictures of you in the water.
I meant to do that, you know.
I got one more exposure left.
I might as well finish the roll.
You know, so long as your f-stop was set right, you should have some quality pictures there.
Get in the van.
Winston, what are those guys doing? Maybe he's worried you got his bad side.
Like there's a good one? Winston, he doesn't look happy.
I think we better go.
Liz, come on.
Let's go, let's go, let's go! I'm trying! We'll send you an 8x10.
It's the weirdest thing.
I know I've seen that guy before.
You mean Curly? No, the guy they shoved in the van.
He looked familiar.
Well, maybe the picture will jog your memory.
It's all blurry.
It's overexposed.
You got glare from the car window.
This won't tell us anything.
We might be able to fix it, but it's gonna take some work.
We can't do it now.
Our darkroom time is up.
We'll try it again tomorrow morning.
Who are you? And then he chased us.
Don't you think that's strange? No.
I chased you for years.
I thought I was chasing you.
Don't you guys ever come up for air? Jess, you won't believe what happened at the lake.
I have no desire to hear about your wacky water adventure with Winston.
I have to go pick up Princess Fowler.
But Todd, turn this up.
Roland Hunter, the key witness in the Congressional drug-smuggling hearing, is still missing.
Set to testify this week, the Sweet Valley resident disappeared five days ago.
Foul play is suspected Oh, my God.
What is it? That's the guy in the picture.
This is Roland Hunter.
Hello, police? Lila, why don't you run in and get us a couple burgers? Nice try.
I see him, too.
I think he followed me here.
You wish.
Playing hard to get? Well, this is a coincidence.
I like to think of it as fate.
Lila Fowler.
It's a pleasure.
Look, I want to apologize for my friend at the lake.
The lake? Yeah, he's a little self-conscious about his hair, so when you took his picture, he freaked.
You weren't at Uh! I'm Chad.
I'm Jessica.
So, how'd that picture turn out, anyway? One of my best.
I'd like to see it.
You know, I think I left it in the darkroom at school.
Maybe we could get together and I'll show it to you.
That'd be great.
Why don't you give me a call? I'll do that.
Soon.
Bye.
You had cards made? Oh, please.
Morning, Jess.
Just let me read my horoscope, and we'll take off.
Don't hurry.
Todd and Winston are picking me up.
Liz, wait.
I ran into this guy yesterday who you know.
He asked me out.
He's really cute, and I was wondering No time for boy stories.
Gotta go.
But That's crazy.
How could the police not believe you? Since it made the news, Roland Hunter's been sighted more than Elvis.
Yeah, who's to say she's not just another nut case calling in? Thanks for the support, Todd.
Well, it's possible that if we print it again, the image will be clearer.
At least, it's worth a What happened here? shot.
Oh, my God.
- Look at this place.
- It's been trashed.
All my photos.
They're gone! It must have been the guys from the lake.
Looking for the picture.
Maybe the cops will listen to us now.
We still can't prove this has anything to do with Roland Hunter.
Not necessarily.
With this scanner, I can take the image from your picture and put it in the computer.
And I can't even set my VCR clock.
The computer fills in the missing information.
Winston, you're a genius.
How long is this gonna take? That's the problem.
It could take all day.
We don't have all day.
Roland Hunter's life may be at stake.
Liz, if I rush it, that picture could come out looking like anyone.
Even Elmer Fudd.
Cool! It'd be funny.
But if you want the true image, you have to let the computer keep running.
So we just wait it out.
I just hope those guys can wait.
Hello? Oh, Chad.
Hi.
Tonight? Great.
What time? Sure, I can bring the picture.
I won't forget.
OK.
I'll see you then.
I'm really looking forward to it, too, Chad.
All right.
Great.
I'll see you soon.
Bye.
You don't have any picture.
When Chad sees me, he won't be focusing on anything else.
After you get the picture, get rid of the girl.
Consider it done.
Where is it? Come on.
I don't believe this.
Come on, where is it? If we can get that picture, we'll have our proof.
I wonder what'll happen.
He said he'll call when it's done.
Jess, what are you doing? I wanted to borrow your thesaurus.
Are you all right? Yeah, I'm fine.
So, Liz, how did your photos turn out? What? I know you're having trouble with your project, and I'm concerned.
Is that so weird? Yes.
I don't have them.
They're at school.
What are they doing there? Well, that's my date.
Gotta go.
New guy? Yeah.
But I'm sure you don't have time to listen to my boy stories.
How long you been into photography? Oh, it seems like yesterday.
Elizabeth.
Good news.
It's working.
So, can I see that picture you took of me? The picture.
You know what? I think I left it in the darkroom again.
No, you didn't.
How do you know? Ow! Cut it out.
'Cause I already checked, Jess.
Let go of my arm.
I'm not playing games, Jessica.
Give me the picture.
I don't know what you're talking about.
Enid, Manny.
Come over here.
Come sit with us.
That was stupid.
Hey! It's a gun, Jess.
Not a word, or it's your last.
What's up, Jess? I'm so glad to see you guys.
Really? Hey, I'm Manny.
Jessica, we're gonna be late.
Jessica and I have a few things to discuss before we go.
You don't mind, do you? Oh, I can wait.
Over there.
Talk to you later.
Bye, guys.
OK, listen.
You want the truth? It's a start.
I didn't take that stupid picture.
I don't even own a camera.
My sister's a photographer.
She's the one you saw.
Right.
She's your identical twin, right? Yeah.
Yeah.
How dumb do I look to you? It's true.
I even searched her room for it.
She must have left it in her locker or something.
Well, then, we're just gonna have to go and get it, aren't we? Chad! What a pleasant surprise.
Where are we going? We aren't going anywhere.
Jessica and I are going to the movies.
But we have to stop by school first and Ahh! I'll see you later.
Well, you don't have to be so rude about it.
Ow.
Stop.
Nah.
Winston! Mystery solved.
Please hold the applause.
That's him.
That's Roland Hunter.
You're brilliant, Eggman.
Elementary, dear Wilkins.
Let's go to the cops.
Hey, Liz.
What's up with Jess' new guy? I don't know.
I've never met him.
He reminds me of Satan.
You've never met him? Then why do you have a picture of him? Let me see that.
So this is the picture Chad was looking for.
Chad? - Jessica's out with this guy right now? - Yeah.
Where? Come on, come on.
I'm trying to remember her combination.
It's a little hard to think with a gun pointed at me.
Get out of the way.
It's not in here.
She said it was at school.
Look, I'm done playing with you, Jessica.
Is there another number for 911? This one's busy.
I'm a nice guy, but the people I work for aren't nearly as patient Oh, it's ringing.
Hello, police department? This is Lila Fowler.
I'm calling you from Sweet Valley High, and we're here Either you give me the picture in five seconds, or your cheerleading days are over.
All right.
Bye.
The police will be here any second.
We have to do something now.
I'm out of here.
What? Jessica may be my best friend, but I have no intention of dying in school.
- Forget her.
- Look, I told you everything I know.
I don't have the picture.
Look, all this guy wants is the picture, right? Hit him with this when he comes around the corner.
Come on, Winston.
What are you doing? Hey, jerk.
This what you're looking for? Um, Liz, I'm not sure that's quite the tone you want to take.
Well, Jess, it looks like you have a twin after all.
I'm sorry I ever doubted you.
Oh, that's OK.
I'll just be on my way.
Ahh! This is what you want.
Why don't you come and get it? No.
See, I have what you want.
Well, that worked.
Can I go home now? Run, Liz.
Call the police.
The police are on their way.
Gimme that.
Gimme that.
- Ohh - Enid.
Everybody out.
Get out.
Nice going, Enid.
I wanted to see what was happening.
You got the best seat in the house now.
Get against the wall.
Where are the negatives? Outside in the BMW.
Gimme the keys.
Oh, man, I just had it detailed.
Come on, come on, come on! Jess and I are gonna go for a little ride, OK? Anybody tries to follow us, I'm gonna come back and take care of you and all your phony little friends.
Nobody calls me phony.
Freeze! Thank God you're here.
I think the guy you're looking for is down there, officer.
All right, let's go Lila, I thought you left.
What was I gonna do walk home? Are you OK? Yeah.
I'm just a little shook up.
I am so sorry.
For what? I should have taken the time earlier to listen to you.
From now on, I will.
Jessica, you've been on some bad dates before, but this one takes the cake.
"Thanks to the heroic efforts of these Sweet Valley students, the kidnappers have been apprehended.
" "Mr.
Hunter was returned safely to Washington, where he will testify this afternoon.
" Wow.
We're heroes.
Especially you, Lila.
She's never gonna let us live this down.
If there's anything I can do for you guys Well I Not a chance, Winston.
Jessica, we're just glad you're safe.
Yeah, but I hope you learned something from all this.
Maybe now you won't hit on every guy that comes your way.
Mm.
Excuse me.
Jess, if you really wanted to help, maybe you could think of a way for Liz to pass her photography assignment.
Chad destroyed all her pictures.
What about the one of the kidnappers? The police took it.
And the negatives? Those, too.
You know, I wouldn't worry about it too much.
Why not? I got your A right here.
Way to go, Liz! 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
