Zack Morris’s Summer Camp Girlfriend


Screen Shot 2013-02-08 at 8.42.29 PMBefore he was getting himself in trouble at Bayside High School in the NBC show Saved By the Bell, Zack Morris was an eighth grader at John F. Kennedy Middle School in the Disney Channel show Good Morning, Miss Bliss.

The summer before his eighth grade year, Morris (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) met an older girl at a camp at Lake Wannabee and told her he was going into ninth grade, a lie he never expected to catch up with him. But when Karen (Carla Gugino,who you might recognize as the star of the 2011 movie The Mighty Macs) shows up on the first day of school in the second episode of the season titled “Summer Love,” Morris desperately tries to keep his charade going, telling repeated half truths about experimental homerooms, secret campuses and driver’s licenses that aren’t good on Wednesdays.
