After his mom leaves, Tony calls J. Sly and Tony come in and initially fight over how horrible this episode has been but then make up over how stupid this has all been. Tell me, what would you do if you were staying in a ski lodge and some guy knocked on your door talking about Yetis? While Jake has trouble writing a new song, he decides to work on his new florist career. But to be the best, she has to be stronger and better at her game. They decide to pad out the episode by imagining what Mark must look like. Naturally, none of this impresses girls in this universe because this is the one place where personality matters more than looks, so everyone throws shit at the three and a gaggle of girls goes off with Jake for a pre-dating Lorena orgy.
It was created by writers Brett Dewey and Ronald B. I assume Mark just wants to get with girls in the hopes one of them will touch his winkey dink. Sam and Lorena also have a studs contest featuring Tony, Sly, and Mark as contestants to see which one of the guys is the best with the ladies. Tony claims his ancestor was Malawian Mansa Musa. In trying to get a date with Lorena, Sly copied off of her test so that they would have more in common with each other. Tony goes back to his house to try and talk Darren out of the fight and says he wants to call the police.
Really, this might be the most bizarre dream sequence in the history of the Engel-verse. Lorena and Jake create a plan to make the gang believe that there is buried treasure hidden nearby. Really, if Aaron Jackson sings as well as he acts, I would have hated to hear what that sounded like. As usual, the Engel-verse has no idea why kids start and stop smoking. Okay, Tony being royalty is no longer the most ridiculous plot of this episode. Everyone takes a career aptitude test at school that will tell them what career would be perfect for them.
I guess the writers gave as little shit about that contrived mess as we the audience did. At the loft, the band sit around and judge Jake for smoking in his absence. He always seems to be a tag along. Out of all the songs on the show to date, this is probably the one that makes the least sense lyrically. And here I thought the Andrew Dice Clay impersonators died out around 1991. California Dreams centered on a group of friends who form the fictional titular band. And then Jake gets a couple of random girls as he says fuck the contest.
Seriously, fuck this whole episode. No, the boys have to pick up Fergie. Tommy Keating himself comes in and taunts Jake, once again proving that the producers of California Dreams have no idea what a teenager looks like. This is already turning out to be one of the most ridiculous episodes of the series. Air Date : 1st-Oct-1994 It's time for another battle of the bands. Season 3, Episode 11 November 26, 1994 Season 3, Episode 11 November 26, 1994 A project to trace the students' ancestry results in everyone finding a historically significant figure perched in their family tree---except Tony William James Jones , who lies and tells the gang he's descended from an African king.
You know, the one that was supposedly influenced by The Beatles. Jesus, this really is a bad Scooby-Doo rip-off plot. Granted, the plot about racism involving Tony in the first season was pretty good. Also, he was apparently listening at the door so he could enter just as they were talking about him and do a really bad Andrew Dice Clay impersonation. Trying not to let that happen, he tries to find someone else. However, Sly and Tony's friendship gets strained over greed. When the hell did Jake become the voice of reason? Yes, that is the plot of this episode.
This turns out to be a bad idea when Tiffani's dad spends all his time with Ariel instead of Tiffani. Yeah, turns out that Matt moved away because…hell if I know…and, in the Engel-verse, study abroad opportunities last longer than a year so Sam happened to find a new home really quickly. Turns out this is Mr. Tony and Sam just complain about their photo being misidentified. Air Date : 10th-Sep-1994 Everyone takes a career aptitude test at school that will tell them what career would be perfect for them.
As soon as Ariel comes in, they shuffle him off to the bar so they can talk about whales and, since whales and eccentric diets are apparently enough to build a relationship off of, they instantly fall in love and want to fuck. Maybe this is why he was never in another episode: incompetence. But it backfires when she finds out he's spending more time with her than with Tiffani. First up, I wonder what this one will be? At school, Tiffani gives her report. Also, why s Mark more convincing as a brainless surfer mailman than he is as himself? As usual, the order placement sucks ass and they placed an episode that belonged near the beginning of the season as the season finale. All I can say is that, when the songs on this show are goofy as fuck, they truly are goofy as fuck. Mark, being not so bright, instantly falls for Sly and gives him the money because they had to do something with this subplot.
Sam laments getting greedy just because of money and shit while Sly wants to lie and shit. Unfortunately, all their equipment is at a pawn shop and they have to get it back. Back in class, the teacher thinks Tony and Sly suck ass so he gives them a F. Air Date : 3rd-Dec-1994 After the Garrison family moves away, including Matt, Sam moves in with Lorena Costa. The gang laugh until they hear him play. Sly thinks that his cousin, Mark, might be right for the job, but Mark has had a bad case of stage fright ever since Sly embarrased him at Carnegie Hall.
