It's Alright Cause I’m Saved By the Bell!

I was reading one of my fave blogs today, Hay Girl Hay:  I Need An Adult!, and noticed a fun lil pic of our dear friend Zach Morris. This jogged my memory a bit and made me realize how much I love/loved Saved By The Bell. I mean I was a tried and true fan - I watched from the pilot all the way through the wedding - I even sat through the "New Class" & "The College Years" - worst! I thought it might be fun to take a little trip down memory lane and discuss some of my favorite episodes/moments. I hope you'll chime in - I know you all have your own!

Prom: Obviously they had like 18 proms in the so-called 4 years they were in high school. But one of my all time favorite episodes is when Kelly's dad lost his job - tear - and she gave him all her "dress money" towards the family funds.

Thus leaving her without a dress to go to prom with Zach. Zach then figures all this out and creates their prom outside the window of the gym. I mean if this doesn't bring a tear to your eye - I don't know what will.

Zach's Phone: I mean need I say more. This is just - it's just amazing.

He always had the latest and greatest and this takes the cake - totally love it. And I also heart that Jimmy Fallon made him bring it out on one of his more recent interviews. So much to love about this.

PSA Announcements: I always thought that it was great that they promoted good things. Like don't do drugs:

And they learned from their mistakes - like the drunk driving episode.

It was just good clean fun. Night & day from the stuff that is on now! Ok - now I sound like an old hag!

The Getaways: Hawaii, Palm Springs, The Malibu Sands Beach Club, I mean the list goes on.

I love when they took it "off site". Hawaii was prob my favorite, although I did LOVE their time at the Beach Club with Mr. Carosi and his daughter Stacey - they really spiced things up!

The end of the summer really got me - when Zach and Stacey had to say their goodbyes - but then the whole gang was there to support him and comfort him through his heartbreak.

Mr. Belding: Now I did find him to be a little annoying. And looking back it's a little creepy that he was such a huge part of their lives. And his signature line did start getting a little old - "Hey, hey, hey…what is going on here?!"

I'm So Excited: Classic - doesn't get much better! Jesse is just under so much pressure to perform in the new signing group (obviously)

and study. She just can't take much more - pops some pills and hopes for the best. Guess what kids, it doesn't work! She totally crumbles and thus creates one of the best scenes in television history:

The Outfits: Arguably one of the best aspects of the show.

I was always a Kelly Kapowski girl, but Lisa Turtle did bust out a few fab things in her day. Jesse - well not so much. And the guys - Slater - could you just - I mean those tank tops/pants - he always dressed to impress.

The Wedding: Seriously - my favorite "movie" of all time. I have it on VHS - and I've watched it more times than I care to admit. I LOVED the wedding. It all just came together. Zach & Kelly were finally starting their lives together. And the montages were just priceless. I just loved everything about this!

My love for Saved By The Bell has spanned through the ages. I grew up with it - it was part of my childhood. I even watch the re-runs sometimes if I'm at the gym before work! I'd love to hear your favorites - what did you love MOST about Saved By The Bell?!
