Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Shawn (Rider Strong) tries to cement his reputation as Adams High School's resident prankster by changing the name of principal Feeny (William Daniels) to "Weeny" in the school paper. This makes trouble for Cory (Ben Savage) when Mr. Feeny, aware that our hero knows who's responsible for the typo, threatens to suspend him unless he squeals on Shawn. Likewise suffering for Shawn's capriciousness is student newspaper editor Molly (Jill Novick), whom Cory's brother Eric (Will Friedle) has a yen for--at least until he meets manipulative southern belle Desiree (Sydney Bennett). As usual, the plot complications are closely linked with the book that Cory has been assigned in class--in this instance, The Scarlet Letter.
