1) A situation where someone is in a situation which they dislike, and then something external to that situation happens which, subsequently, gets the person in that situation out of it. Usually just in time.
2) Cheesy 80's sitcom based in an All-American High School setting.

I grew up with Zack and the Gang,from the Miss Bliss years, to Bayside, the Malibu Sands Episodes up until the College years and the Las Vegas wedding series.
The New Class sucked and that's why it was cancelled after a couple of seasons.
most of the episodes are funny, it usually consists of the constant relationship problems between Zack and Kelly, which gets pretty tiring. I mean, make up your freakin minds about who you wanna go out with! Geez. Other than that, its a pretty good show.
