Jimmy Fallon has been on a nostalgic hot streak since his viral-inducing show has been vacationing in Los Angeles for the 2015 Grammys. After making good on reliving The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air opener, the comedian ups the ante and put together a long-awaited Saved By The Bell reunion.
The segment began under the white lie that Fallon had actually went to school out in the Golden State. What he was referring to is the fictional but oh-so-surreal Bayside High where all the childhood favorites attended. From then, a trip down memory lane ensued starting with Mark-Paul Gosselaar still holding strong to his Zack Morris mannerisms like he had been buried in a time capsule for the past 20 years. Gosselar has previously appeared on the show as his famed alter-ego so his appearance was incredible, even if it wasn’t as surprising.
Yet, Mario Lopez and Elizabeth Berkley hopping on the set to recreate A.C. Slater and Jessie Spano, respectively was shocking to say the least. The two on-screen loves reenacted a few seconds worth of their most famous scenes right before Dennis Haskins b.k.a. Principal Belding went through with his cameo.
Just when all the surprises were seemingly exhausted, a visibly pregnant Tiffani-Amber Thiessen hit the stage as Kelly Kapowski. Lark Voorhies was noticeably absent from the impromptu Saved By The Bell reunion, but chances are her self-consciousness about her looks kept her away. As for Dustin Diamond b.k.a. Screech, his legal troubles for stabbing a man wouldn’t have done him any favors. According to Diamond’s Lifetime struggle, The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story, he was always the odd man out so it’s a safe to say he probably wasn’t missed.
