Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Reluctant to play Hamlet in a classroom production (he considers the Melancholy Dane to be a "whiner" in a sissy costume), Cory (Ben Savage) relinquishes the role to nerdy Minkus (Lee Norris)--who can't act his way out of a paper bag. Even so, Mr. Feeny (William Daniels) decides to teach you-know-who a lesson by allow Minkus to remain in the role and demoting Cory to a spear-carrying extra. And in a curiously related subplot, Alan (William Russ) seriously considers quitting his job at the store after the district manager cuts his salary by five percent. (PS: This is the episode with the backyard miniature-golf tournament).
