Schooled is in session Wednesday night, and on the syllabus: ’90s rom-coms, specifically, She’s All That.
In the exclusive clip above from ABC’s new spin-off of The Goldbergs, William Penn High School’s new music teacher Lainey (AJ Michalka) is quick to intervene when she overhears two male students betting whether they can transform the geeky, face-covered-in-Go-Gurt Harriet into one of the popular girls — done easily “with a new look and the right guy on her arm.”
“I know exactly what you’re doing… you’re plotting to She’s All That the weird girl,” says Lainey, who we learn has seen the Freddie Prinze Jr. and Rachael Leigh Cook movie “more than once but less than 19 times.”
Like any good instructor, she tries to teach by example, citing her own history at William Penn and her relationship with Barry Goldberg, as audiences have already seen play out on The Goldbergs.
Watch the exclusive clip above for more. Schooled airs Wednesdays at 8:30 p.m. ET following The Goldbergs on ABC.
