Let's Talk About Saved By The Bell

Last night, Jimmy Fallon gave us all a gift by taking a moment to do a Saved By The Bell Reunion in the middle of The Tonight Show. If you haven't seen it, here it is, in all its glory:


Okay. First of all, how did they make the exact same set?! It is identical! I bet the cast felt all sorts of weird being next to those lockers and those stairs. The outfits. The hair. I just can't even deal. I said this on the Facebook page, but had Lisa Turtle walked out, I'm pretty sure I would've lost my mind and just burst into tears right then and there. 

This is my childhood, straight up. I came home and watched this show every single day after school. California Dreams came on right after it, but California Dreams wasn't nearly as good. I remember everyday when I would watch the opening credits of the show, I thought that Tiffani-Amber Thiessen was hands down the most beautiful girl in the world. I wanted to be her. And I wished I was a brunette instead of a red head. 

I didn't care for Tori, who would only wear motorcycle jackets. Did anyone like her? And I didn't care for Stacey Carosi. Stacey was okay but I felt like she was getting in the way of Zack and Kelly. It was fun to change settings for a bit though at the Malibu Sands Resort.  

I also loved it when they went to Hawaii.

Do you remember when Tori Spelling played Violet, Screech's girlfriend?

 I was THRILLED that in the Jimmy Fallon sketch last night they played some classic Zack Attack.

Also, did anyone else memorize the choreography to the music video by Hot Fudge Sundae?

Remember when Zack and Kelly broke up?! Oh I was so upset.

I watched The College Years. I very much disapproved of Kelly's little fling with Professor Jeremiah Laskey. 

I remember watching the wedding episode with Lindsee. 

I did NOT watch "The New Class" because NO.

The show was just so great. The most rebellious thing anyone ever did on that show was become addicted to caffeine pills so they could study harder. I mean seriously. What happened to shows like that? 

So, here's my idea:

Based on last night's little episode, it appears we have a pregnant Kelly Kapowski. If Cory and Topanga can have a new show where we get to see them be parents, why can't we watch Zack and Kelly do the same thing? 

The little Morris-Kapowski children are certain to be full of sass and personality! Mr. Belding can be the godfather or something.

It could work.
