High school kids go to a mall early to get in line to buy U2 concert tickets and get involved with bad guys and a bag of cash and a sting operation.

U2 Pop Culture Reference:
In mall, upon arriving:.
Kelly: Wow, look at this line
Lisa: Man, we'll never get tickets to the U2 concert.

In mall, after someone kicks him awake Screech thinks the line is moving:
Screech: Five tickets to the U2 concert please.

In mall, right when tickets go on sale:
Ticket Guy: U2 tickets are now on sale, cash only
Screech: I'd like five seats as close as you've got and when I say close I want to see nose hairs.
Ticket Guy: I have tickets in mezzanine and orchestra, what'll it be?
Screech: Oh my goodness. Oh my gosh. Zach will kill me if I make the wrong decision.
Ticket Guy (looking at line): Those people will kill you if you don't hurry up, ok?
Screech: Excuse me fellow U2 fan, would you hold my spot in line, I need to consult my friends.
Fellow Fan: [nods]
Screech: Thanks

In mall, after Screech can't get back in line, the rest of the group tries to cut in line:
Zach to old black woman: Excuse me ma'am. Hi. I wonder if you'd let my friend go in front of you. He missed last year's concert.
A.C.: Yeah and you see he was so depressed that he locked himself in the basement for a year.
Zach: Uh huh and today is his first day out.
Black woman scolding: No way blondie, I never miss a U2 concert.

In mall, P.A. announcement after group has given up getting tickets:
Announcement: Attention mall shoppers, due to the phenomenal sales of U2 concert tickets Tower Records announces a second concert has been added. Tickets go on sale tomorrow at 9:00 a.m. [Tickets are apparently $60.00 each]

In mall, cops are running a sting operation of some kind. The kids find a bag full of cash. The cops pretend to be talk show hosts or something.
Cop: And for being guests on our show, Candid Video's gonna give you five front row tickets to the U2 concert.



Besides U2, is it worth watching?
How on earth this show stayed on the air so long, is beyond me. When people my age act embarrassed because they watched Facts Of Life or Six Million Dollar Man each week, just point them towards this incredibly terrible show and they won't feel as bad. I hope I never have to watch a single minute of this show again.
