Chronology
Preceded by Good Morning, Miss Bliss
Followed by Saved by the Bell: The College Years
Saved by the Bell: The New Class

Saved by the Bell is an American television sitcom that aired between 1989 and 1993. The series is a retooled version of the 1988 series Good Morning, Miss Bliss, which was itself later retconned into the history of Saved by the Bell. The series followed the exploits of several students along with their principal at Bayside High School.

The show stars Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Dustin Diamond, Lark Voorhies, and Dennis Haskins, who appeared in Good Morning, Miss Bliss, as well as Tiffani-Amber Thiessen, Elizabeth Berkley, and Mario Lopez, who joined the cast for Saved by the Bell. The show brought fame to the cast members and launched most of their careers; however, many were typecast into their Saved by the Bell roles for many years.

The show often incorporated dramatic elements into episodes by dealing with real teen social issues, such as friendship, drug use, drinking and driving, homelessness, financial issues, divorce, graduating, college, sibling rivalry, taking responsibilities for one's actions, being bullied, death, and environmental issues. This made it a precursor (with other teen sitcoms of the time like The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air) for networks of more recent shows such as The O.C. and Dawson's Creek to introduce young target audiences to critical moral matters. Notably, sexual relationships were alluded to but not actually dealt with.

The show's popularity allowed for two spin-off series: Saved by the Bell: The College Years, which followed several of the original characters' college experiences and Saved by the Bell: The New Class, which followed a new group of students at Bayside High School. The series also spawned two TV movies and a short-lived comic book series.

The series is also available in French: Sauvés par le gong, Spanish: Salvado por la campana, Italian: Bayside School and German: California High School.

History

Good Morning, Miss Bliss

Saved by the Bell originated in an NBC pilot entitled Good Morning, Miss Bliss, which was inspired by then NBC president Brandon Tartikoff's teachers from his past. The show was set in Indianapolis, Indiana. NBC decided not to pick up the pilot, but Disney Channel did and aired the series for one season. Unlike the series that followed, the intention was to focus on the life of the teacher Miss Bliss, played by Hayley Mills, as the main character. The characters of Zack Morris, Samuel "Screech" Powers, Lisa Turtle, and Mr. Richard Belding all originated on the series; other main characters, including other classmates Nikki Coleman (Heather Hopper), Mikey Gonzalez (Max Battimo), and maintenance supervisor Mylo Williams (T. K. Carter) were discontinued when the show changed direction. Jaleel White, Brian Austin Green, and Jonathan Brandis all had roles in the pilot episode.

The show was canceled after 13 episodes and the rights were acquired by NBC, which had reconsidered the matter. Seeing that it had merit, they decided to revamp and recreate the series. Executive Producer Peter Engel wanted the show to be called When the Bell Rings, but Tartikoff convinced him to go with the title Saved by the Bell.[1]

NBC rebirth – Saved by the Bell

The cast of Saved by the Bell, clockwise from left: Screech, Slater, Lisa, Mr. Belding, Jessie, Zack, and Kelly.

Three of the teens from the original cast – Gosselaar, Diamond, and Voorhies – remained on the show, playing the same characters with only minor changes to their backstories. Haskins also stayed on as Mr. Belding. However, the setting was changed from Indianapolis, Indiana to the fictional Bayside High School in fictional Palisades, California. The two students dropped from the original series were replaced by three new additions. Kelly Kapowski (Tiffani Thiessen) and Jessie Spano (Elizabeth Berkley) were introduced as longtime friends of the original three characters and new transfer student A.C. Slater (Mario Lopez) rounded out the group. Max (Ed Alonzo), the proprietor of the local restaurant hangout ("The Max") was also a cast member in early episodes.

The focus of the show was shifted towards the exploits of the students themselves and Zack Morris became the show's lead character. Several teachers recurred over the course of the series, but Mr. Belding was the only school authority figure to ever be in the main cast.

After the show's second season, NBC sold the series off into syndication with the Good Morning, Miss Bliss episodes included to pad out the syndication package, despite the continuity problems and production changes. The Good Morning, Miss Bliss episodes were edited to include openings to match the Saved by the Bell episodes. These episodes are sometimes billed as Saved by the Bell: The Junior High Years. Mark-Paul Gosselaar would do in-character commentaries addressed to viewers before each of the earlier episodes, explaining that the episodes occurred in junior high.

The show performed extremely well for NBC and, despite being savaged by television critics, quickly and easily became the highest rated show on Saturday mornings. At the height of its popularity, the cast of the show did many road tours to malls and other places where they would interact with fans and sign autographs. The show's popularity on Saturday morning is what led NBC to shift from airing cartoons to live action teen-oriented shows (California Dreams, Hang Time, etc.) under the TNBC banner. Each season of the series essentially represented a year of high school for the students, culminating in their graduation.

In the fall of 1991 at the start of the third season, the series was expanded to an hour with all new back-to-back episodes.

In the show's final season, NBC doubled the number of episodes ordered, despite the fact that they would have to resign the entire cast to new contracts in order to film them. Thiessen and Berkley refused to sign a new contract for these new episodes, resulting in a block of episodes that feature a new character, Tori Scott (Leanna Creel) in their place.

The final episode of the series aired in prime time on May 22, 1993. The episode, in which the cast graduated from high school, was filmed before Thiessen and Berkley left the show. No mention is made as to what happened to Tori Scott. The series finale was followed by a special airing of the Saved by the Bell: The College Years pilot episode, to set up the next phase of the characters' lives. In addition, a special series finale titled "Wedding in Las Vegas" had four parts in which Zack Morris and Kelly Kapowski got married and ended their on- again off – again relationship.

Today, reruns air weekday mornings on TBS, as well as in local syndication, either once or twice a week depending on market.

Main characters

Zachary "Zack" Morris

Zack, played by Mark-Paul Gosselaar, is often referred to as "Preppy" by his friend AC Slater. He is a charming schemer who often breaks the fourth wall by addressing the audience, sometimes temporarily freezing all of the characters around him in the process. Zack's schemes, though amusing, often backfire, resulting in outcomes which he hadn't expected.

Zack's best friends since grade school have been Lisa Turtle and next-door neighbor Jessie Spano; Samuel "Screech" Powers has also been tagging along with Zack since they were little. Zack was also constantly pining for Kelly, coming up with new ways to try to win her over in many episodes, often battling for her affections with his on-again off-again best friend A.C. Slater. This rivalry ended as the show decided that Zack and Slater were better suited as good friends, not least because of the close friendship between the actors who played them.

Zack's father is a hot-shot computer salesman (with whom his relationship was, for a time, rather distant) who has been played by two different actors. His mother is a kind, but overly permissive homemaker. Upon graduation, Zack was slated to go to Yale, having scored 1502 on the SAT, the highest of the gang (despite his slacker reputation) but he ultimately attended Cal U with Slater, Screech, and Kelly.

Kelly Kapowski

Played by Tiffani-Amber Thiessen (now known as Tiffani Thiessen), Kelly is a cheerleader and has been described by creator Peter Engel as the quintessential "All-American Girl." She served as a love interest for both Zack and Slater in the first season, but it was Zack who would eventually win her heart and end up marrying her. Indeed, much of the show's storylines concerned their on-and-off relationship. Considered the most popular girl in school and despite the stereotypes of cheerleaders, Kelly was one of the kindest and most squeaky clean (though she did have to serve a couple of detentions during high school). She was introduced as an outsider to the show's core clique.

At times, Kelly and Jessie had arguments due to their differences. Jessie believed that cheerleading was demeaning to women although she was a cheerleader in several episodes. Zack had been obsessively in love with Kelly for years, as evidenced by a cardboard cutout of her in his bedroom. His pursuit of Kelly led to her eventually joining the gang. She is on the volleyball, cheerleading, and swim teams and is also a trained lifeguard. Upon graduation, she did not have enough money for college so she attended community college, but later transferred to Cal U with Zack, Slater, and Screech. Both Elizabeth Berkley and Thiessen, as well as Jennie Garth, auditioned for the role of Kelly Kapowski. Thiessen and Garth would later work together on Beverly Hills, 90210 as unfriendly rivals Valerie Malone and Kelly Taylor, respectively (the actresses became best friends in real life).

Lisa Marie Turtle

Played by Lark Voorhies, Lisa is trendy and talkative. She is the clique's fashion expert and the gossip queen of Bayside High. She comes from a wealthy family; her father and mother are shown to be surgeons. Originally, her character was written to be Caucasian and Jewish, however, Lark aced the audition and they awarded her the role. Because of her upbringing, Lisa always has access to the latest fashions and knows when something is in and when it is not. Like Jessie and Screech, Lisa has been Zack's best friend since grade school and some episodes hinted that she harbored a small crush on him. Lisa's goal is to become a world famous fashion designer (Voorhies would later play fashion designer Jasmine Malone on The Bold and the Beautiful). For the majority of the gang's years at Bayside, one of the running gags was Screech's fruitless attempts to woo Lisa. While his romantic feelings for her were never returned and often rejected with insults and jokes, eventually she realized she had developed a soft spot for Screech and even attended the Bayside Senior Prom with him. Upon graduation, she receives acceptance into the Fashion Institute of Technology after a successful fashion show.

Samuel "Screech" Powers

Played by Dustin Diamond, Screech Powers (whose given name is Samuel) is the school nerd. Screech has been tagging along with Zack since they were in elementary school and is extremely loyal to him. In exchange for doing Zack's homework and being roped into Zack's various stunts, Screech receives protection from school bullies and a general boost in his confidence; but Zack's affection for Screech is evident in spite of this. He is very comfortable with his geekiness and fancies himself a ladies' man. The rest of the gang simultaneously picks on and humors Screech for his eccentricities (e.g. hiding in his locker, wearing extremely loud and mismatched clothes, and obsessing over science and chess). A recurring storyline in the series is his unrequited love for Lisa Turtle. During the show, Screech had a girlfriend named Violet (played by Tori Spelling); it was never made clear why the two broke up. He also dated Kelly Kapowski briefly in one episode of Season 1 as he helped her study for a science test. In several early episodes of the series, Screech has an anthropomorphized robot named Kevin, which he programmed. Screech was class valedictorian, but gave that title to Jessie as he knew how much it meant to her. However, Jessie learned what Screech had done for her and returned the honor on graduation day. He received acceptance to The Barbizon School of Modeling and Acting, Duke University; Emerson College; Clemson University; University of California, Berkeley; the California Institute of Technology; Emory University; University of Southern California; Washington & Jefferson College; and Princeton University.[citation needed] He is rejected from an all-women school that was his number one choice. He chose to go to the fictional Cal U after graduation and shared a dormitory suite with Zack, Slater, and Kelly. He also was the only cast member to star in every incarnation of Saved by the Bell, as he joined the cast of The New Class as an aide to Mr. Belding. Diamond was three years younger than most of the cast though his character was the same age as them.

Albert Clifford "A.C." Slater Sanchez

Played by Mario Lopez, Slater is the token "jock" of the group. An army brat, he was an outsider, having transferred to Bayside in the first filmed episode (which aired later as a flashback). A.C. mentions that he has been to Bolivia, Italy, Iceland, and Berlin among other places. He becomes the school's star athlete, excelling as a wrestler and the quarterback of the football team. He is on the basketball team in one episode, even though the basketball season coincides with the wrestling season. Slater was originally written as Zack's rival for Kelly's affection before becoming Zack's best friend in the show's second season and developing an attraction to strong-willed feminist Jessie Spano. A common theme occurs when Jessie constantly bickers with A.C. over his insensitive remarks, particularly about women.

He refers to Zack as "Preppie" and when he starts dating Jessie, calls her "Mama". Lopez is a drummer and dancer and some episodes include Slater showcasing these "hidden talents." His father (a Major) appears in two episodes, but his mother, though mentioned throughout the series, never appears. He also has a younger sister named JB whom Zack briefly began dating, much to his chagrin. In the season 4 episode "Love Machine," his ex-girlfriend from Berlin visits and calls him by his real name, "Albert Clifford". Much like Voorhies, Lopez was able to captivate the show's producers into casting him into a role that was originally written to be Caucasian. This issue of Slater's ethnicity is addressed in an episode from The College Years, where it is revealed that 25 years earlier A.C.'s father changed his last name from Sanchez to Slater so he could get into the military academy. Although the episode reveals that A.C. does not fluently understand Spanish, A.C. is seen speaking broken Spanish to the kitchen staff of the Malibu Sands Beach club. A.C. receives a wrestling scholarship to the University of Iowa, but ends up going to Cal U. During an episode in which Zack was dealing with Gem Diamond to purchase class rings, the A.C. was stated as meaning "abnormally cruel." During an episode where the six core characters used fake I.D.'s to get into an "over 18" dance club called "The Attic," the A.C. was stated as meaning "absolutely charming."

Jessica Myrtle Spano

Played by Elizabeth Berkley, Jessica Myrtle ("Jessie") Spano is the show's resident know-it-all crusader. She's often seen pursuing a variety of environmental and generally liberal causes while keeping up her position as class president and one of the smartest students in her class. Like Lisa and Screech, Jessie is Zack's childhood friend (despite the lack of continuity with Good Morning, Miss Bliss). She and Zack live next door to each other and he routinely climbs into her room via a tree outside her window. From the second season onwards, her main love interest is Slater, who disagrees with her feminist views. Jessie's parents are divorced and both are remarried during Season 3. Her mother's remarriage introduces a conniving stepbrother named Eric from New York in a 2-part episode (played by Joshua Hoffman), although neither her mother nor stepfather are featured.[2] In another 2-part episode, her father marries a much younger aerobics instructor named Leslie, whom Jessie initially disfavors. Jessie also struggled with drug addiction at one point on the series, taking caffeine pills in order to stay awake for longer study hours. Jessie fully expected to be crowned valedictorian, but finished a fraction of a point behind Screech and reluctantly settled for salutatorian status. Upon graduation, Jessie attends Columbia University, although she had been hoping to get into Stansbury (fictional) in one episode and had applied to Harvard and Yale and Princeton as well (she had also expressed a desire to attend Stanford in a few episodes).

Richard Belding

Played by Dennis Haskins, Mr. Richard Belding is the principal of Bayside High School and the show's resident authority figure. However, when he attended high school he was an anti authority hippie whom, in one episode, Jessie referred to as "The Zack Morris of the 70s". According to an old copy of the school paper he once mooned his teacher. Although rarely alluded to, he is known to be a hero of the Vietnam War. He once mentioned that had he been allowed to return for a fourth tour of duty, "the war would've been won in a week". He's known for his catch phrase "Hey, hey, hey, what is going on here?" as well as his high-pitched laugh. Belding has frequent run-ins with Zack and his friends as either a foe to be outwitted or a friend to turn to for help. Despite being a responsible authority figure, Mr. Belding is unique as he genuinely seems to care about what his students, particularly Zack, think of him. He is married to Rebecca "Becky" Belding (née Flugelman) and has an irresponsible younger brother Rod. Rod Belding appeared in one episode having volunteered to take the class on a rafting trip but backed out at the last minute to go on a date with a stewardess; the resulting argument was overheard by Zack, who had initially liked Rod's lighthearted manner. Belding remained the principal at Bayside (along with Screech as his assistant) until he left to become dean of students at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (Haskins' alma mater in real life) in the final episode of Saved By The Bell: The New Class. He is also known for his love of The Beach Boys classic "California Girls".

Other main characters

  • Max, played by magician/comedian Ed Alonzo, is the owner of The Max, the favorite hangout of the gang. He acted as a sort of liaison between the adult and kid worlds—serving as both a guide and a friend to the gang. Max is known for his quirky sense of humor and his array of magic tricks. He starred in the first season and recurred in the second and then stopped appearing due to The Max being bought by a new owner. Under this new management we met two new waiters; Jeffrey, who split up Zack and Kelly; and James, the actor. The diner, The Max, burned down in the New Class episode Fire at The Max.
  • Violet Anne Bickerstaff, played by Tori Spelling had a recurring role as Screech's girlfriend, during Seasons 2 & 3. She played Violet for only three episodes on the show. Two of the episodes were during season 2. Her first episode on the show was episode #21 "House Party" where Screech's parents leave for Graceland and the gang accidentally breaks his mother's Elvis statue. The second episode was episode #34 "Glee Club" and her last episode being episode #41 "Check Your Mate". After episode #41 her character never appeared on the show.
  • Tori Scott, played by Leanna Creel, was introduced near the end of the series as the new girl at Bayside High. She is initially portrayed as a "tough girl" and is seldom seen without her leather jacket and rides a motorcycle to school. She at first is an antagonist to Zack, often getting the better of him, but eventually becomes a love interest of Zack. Tori only appears in approximately half the episodes of the final season.
  • Stacey Carosi, played by Leah Remini, was introduced in the Malibu Sands Beach Club episodes where the gang took jobs over the summer (the exception being Lisa who was a member at the Resort). Stacey attends school on the East Coast and the owner of the club is her father, Leon Carosi, played by Ernie Sabella. Stacey is initially disgusted by Zack and refers to him sarcastically as "Dude" and often remarks that his being "Californian" is quite annoying, yet later becomes Zack's love interest. They must hide their affair from Leon, as Zack and Leon are at odds from the very beginning of the summer. Their romance ends when Stacey must go back to New York for school and in the final summer episode, even Leon, who finds out about the romance, grows to like Zack.

The Fourth Wall

One notable aspect of the show at the time was how often it broke the fourth wall. Unusual for a children's show, the main character, Zack, would routinely break the fourth wall and address the audience. Functionally, this was similar to the approach taken in the film Ferris Bueller's Day Off, as Zack would generally use this instance to offer exposition or side-commentary on events which were taking place on-screen. Stylistically, Zack's instances of breaking the fourth wall generally involved him freezing the action at will by saying "Time out" as he turned to address the camera. Zack would generally resume the action by saying "Time in." Though this was usually done to provide exposition, side-commentary or to buy time to think something through, Zack used the frozen action of the scene to escape from Slater punching him, thus breaking the fourth wall and thereby altering the substance of the plot. When time resumed, Slater accidentally punched Mr. Belding and everyone in the room was surprised that Zack was suddenly gone.

The only other character to interact with Zack during a "Time Out" was Screech in the episode entitled, "The Glee Club." However, it is unclear whether Screech was unfrozen because Zack was addressing him or simply because Screech was not present in the main scene (i.e. Zack calls for time out on-stage while Screech is standing backstage). He also called a Florist in the episode "Breaking Up is Hard to Undo."

The Tori Paradox

As mentioned above, the character of Tori Scott (Leanna Creel) was added in later episodes as an initial sparring partner and later girlfriend for Zack. Originally, the final season consisted of thirteen episodes featuring the original cast and the cast members' contracts with the show expired after those episodes were completed with the final graduation episode. However, NBC ordered more episodes of the show and Thiessen and Berkley refused to sign new contracts. Rather than producing new episodes with only four cast members, a new character, Tori Scott, was added to serve as a replacement for Kelly and Jessie.

The promos for the final season of the show featured Kelly, Jessie, and Tori together, despite the fact that the actresses never actually appear in an episode together. Rather, the network alternated between "Kelly and Jessie" and "Tori" episodes each week.

During the "Tori" episodes, it was never explained why Jessie and Kelly were not present and likewise for the "Kelly and Jessie" episodes, no mention was made of Tori. When the season aired in the UK, the episodes tended to be reordered so that the Tori episodes and the Jessie and Kelly episodes were shown together. This was scarcely less confusing, since no mention was ever made of Tori's sudden disappearance and Kelly and Jessie's equally sudden reappearance partway through the season. When the program had the characters graduating from Bayside High, Kelly and Jessie were part of the graduation, but Tori was not.

The term "Tori Paradox" is derived from Chuck Klosterman's essay about the show in his book, Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs: A Low Culture Manifesto.

Spin-offs

The show was popular enough to warrant two spin-offs, both of which premiered in 1993.

Saved by the Bell: The College Years

Saved by the Bell: The College Years continued with several of the characters dealing with college life. It aired in the season following the original series' last and was also set in the following school year. The series sported a continuity problem in that the characters who ended up at the fictional California University were set to go off to different universities at the end of the original Saved by the Bell.

Due to low ratings, Saved by the Bell: The College Years only lasted one season. Unlike the original series which aired on Saturday mornings with only one exception in 1993, The College Years was shown in prime time. The series aired from September 14, 1993 (though the original pilot aired on May 22, 1993) to February 8, 1994.

Saved by the Bell: The New Class

Saved by the Bell: The New Class was created to continue the story of Bayside High School in the Saturday morning timeslot after the original cast graduated. The series featured a new set of students anchored by Dennis Haskins and later Dustin Diamond, whose character Screech became Principal Belding's administrative assistant on a work-study program from California University (a reference to Screech's college in "The College Years"). While Saved by the Bell: The New Class ran for seven seasons, it suffered numerous cast changes (including a second season cast purge that only left Haskins and three other cast members) and never gained the popularity of the original series. The New Class aired from September 11, 1993 to January 8, 2000. Many of the New Class episodes were actually "recycled" plots from the original Saved by the Bell. Slater, Lisa, and Zack had a cameo in one episode in Season 2 while trying to keep Bayside from being bought and destroyed. Mr. Belding was given a new, bigger office. The Max remained as the hangout for the Bayside High students, although a fire burned it down in one episode and it was given a new look.

Syndication

Saved by the Bell is syndicated in what appears to be two syndication packages:

  • The original series, with the repackaged Good Morning, Miss Bliss episodes and the Hawaiian Style TV movie, broken down into four standard-length episodes.
  • The College Years and the Wedding in Las Vegas TV movie (broken down into four standard-length episodes).

Produced by NBC Productions, Saved by the Bell's United States distribution rights are currently handled by their distribution arm, NBC Universal Television Distribution. Until recently, it was syndicated via Rysher Entertainment (CBS Television Distribution would take over distribution after 2929 Entertainment purchased Rysher, although the Rysher logo was retained on most episodes, and is still retained on TBS airings). In airings of Saved by the Bell episodes in broadcast syndication and on TBS (along with the TBS telecasts of Saved by the Bell: The College Years) since September 2007, the versions distributed by NBC Universal feature truncated versions of both series theme songs, that are shortened down to the end chorus (no explanation has been given as to why the theme songs were cut down) and as a result, fast-cut versions of the show's opening sequences.

The series is syndicated on individual television stations around the U.S. (depending on the market) and is shown for two hours daily starting at 7:00 a.m. ET/PT on TBS with the College Years episodes airing on Fridays in the same time slot. The series has aired on TBS for much of the time since 1996; WGN America also aired reruns of the series in the mid-to-late 1990s.

The show premiered on The N with a six-hour marathon on January 14, 2008 starting at 6pm EST. It is normally seen on weekday afternoons. The show started on The N on January 14, 2008. As of July 14, 2009, the show no longer airs on The N.

In the United Kingdom, the series was broadcast during its first run on broadcast channel Channel 4 on Saturday and Sunday mornings (also throughout school holidays). It was later shown on cable television network Nickelodeon UK in 2001, proving very popular; however, the show was discontinued from its run around 2006 and was removed from the Nickelodeon UK website; however, the program made a return to the channel in September 2007, being shown every weekday.

In Australia, the series aired on free-to-air on the Seven Network during both its original run and in repeats throughout the nineties and early naughties.

Reunion

On April 9, 2006, Cartoon Network's Adult Swim announced that Saved by the Bell would air at midnight as a two week special starting April 17. On April 19, 2006, Adult Swim also posted on their website that Saved by the Bell was back in production. A week later, the announcement was exposed as a joke.[3]

On March 27, 2009, NBC's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon launched a campaign to get the cast to have a Saved by the Bell reunion. Fans can sign the online petition and pledge their support for the cast to reunite on the show. As of now Dennis Haskins, Lark Voorhies, Mario Lopez, Elizabeth Berkley and Mark-Paul Gosselaar have agreed to a reunion.[4][5] Gosselaar reprised his role as Zack Morris on Late Night on June 8, 2009, while promoting his current TNT drama, Raising the Bar. The spoof interview closed with a performance of "Friends Forever" originally by Zack Attack, where Zack played guitar and sang with backing from Fallon's house band, The Roots. Tiffani Thiessen posted a parody video to the online website Funny or Die where she said she was just too busy to join in a reunion.[6]

The cast reunited in August 2009 for a photo shoot in People. Diamond did not participate in the shoot.[7] In September 2009, Diamond published Behind the Bell, a "dirt-dishing" memoir about his time with the show (ISBN 0981239692), and presently, only Dennis Haskins is on speaking terms with Diamond.

The Lisa Card [1.2]

Zack: This looks like a job for, Zack-man.

Lisa: You think I went overboard?
Zack: Like the crew of the Titanic.

Zack: The moral of the story, gang. Well, it's simple; (Zack shows a credit card with the name Lisa on it) The Lisa Card, don't leave home WITH it.

Zack: Screech even sold his body to science.
Jessie: Yeah, they gave him twenty dollars to take it back.

Kid: Miss, this isn't what I ordered. You were supposed to toast my buns!
Lisa: You want toasted buns? Go sit on a microwave!

Lisa: I'm sorry, Max.
Max: That's okay. It's only the third tray you've dropped. Don't worry about it.

Zack: How's she doing? Let me put it another way. If Lisa were a car, she'd be recalled.

Zack: We only made $53 selling Lisa's clothes. So, she had to do the most humiliating, insulting, degrading thing possible for her - get a job.

Slater: I'm confused, sir. You know, maybe I'm just trying too hard to get girls to like me.
Mr. Belding: Hey, now I can identify with that. This may come as a surprise to you, but when I was your age, I wasn't... well, you know... the hunk I am now!
Slater: I can't believe this, sir! No, I thought you were Stud City!
Mr. Belding: Everybody thinks that!

Zack: ... Kelly got B's, and her parents got her ice cream... (looks at report card) I haven't figure out WHAT to buy my parents yet!
Slater: Does this look like a good dress sir?
Mr. Belding: Well I guess so, is it for your Girlfriend?
Slater: No Sir, it's for me. I wanted to wear it to school tomorrow.
Come in to my office young lady--Slater!

The Gift [1.3]

Screech: Zack, I got an A.
Zack: Hey, Screech, how'd you do that?
Screech: Well, I was seeing so many pictures, I just stayed up all night and went over everything.
Zack: Ohh, you cheated! You studied!

Jessie: Lisa, what is that funny looking letter next to my name?
Lisa: It's a Q, Jessie.
Jessie: No, really, really, I can take it. Whatever I got, I deserved. For the first time in my life, I took the easy way out. I'm prepared to face the consequences.
Lisa: It's a B, Jessie.

(Jessie faints)


Mr. Belding: But what kind of devious creature would make two fake phone calls? (Zack's cell phone rings and Belding picks it up) Zack can't come to the phone right now. He's on his way to pick up his season tickets to detention. If you'd like to leave a message, please wait for the beep.
Zack: Beep.

Mr. Belding: Screech, your mother called and told me about lightning hitting you. Now, I just want to make sure you're doing alright. Tell me -
Screech: 8:30 last night.
Mr. Belding: ...when exactly were you struck by lightning? 8:30?
Screech: Yeah.
Mr. Belding: Are there any -
Screech: One.
Mr. Belding: ...side effects? Did you say one?
Screech: Yeah, but it's a secret. I'm not supposed to tell anyone that I can see the future.
Mr. Belding: See the future? Screech, that's -
Screech: Preposterous?
Mr. Belding: Right.

Mr. Belding: Now, where was I?
Screech: You were about to say no one has the power to see the future.
Mr. Belding: Right, Screech, no one has the power to see the future!
Screech: Oops, I'll pick them up!
Mr. Belding: Pick what up? (knocks over pencil holder) Uh... Screech, I'm just curious. My mother-in-law is staying with us indefinitely. By any chance, can you tell me -
Screech: She'll be gone by Tuesday.
Mr. Belding: ALRIGHT!

Jessie: You know, you guys, I just remembered, there was one time that I did not get an A. I was in the fourth grade, Mr. Simmons had a nervous breakdown and gave the entire class L's and Q's.
Kelly: Why is getting an A so important to you?
Jessie: It's not important. Alright, it is, I know it shouldn't be, but I just can't help myself. It's my whole identity.
Kelly: What are you talking about?
Jessie: Will you stop hollering at me? Everyone's gotta be something, right? She's the fashionable one, you're the popular one and, who am I?
Kelly: The wacko one.

Fatal Distraction [1.4]

Kelly: So many boys, so little time.

Kelly: I know what you mean, you want me to ask you?
Zack: You could do worse.
Slater: You could do better.... a lot better.


Zack: Mr. Belding... quick, you gotta help me. My life is being threatened by one of your students!

Zack: Kelly "The Killer" Kapowski.
Mr. Belding: Kelly Kapowski?

Screech's Woman [1.5]

Slater: (on realising Zack is Bambi) Preppy, is that you? NIIIICEEE legs.

Screech: No, actually, you've helped me. You've made me realize that there are a million fish in the sea and I'm just a worm to attract them.

Mr. Belding: I am never going to the bathroom again.

Zack: What's she doing here?
Lisa: I went over to Jessie's and said, Jessie, I need to borrow your color wheel. Jessie said, Why? I said, Zack needs it. She said, Why? And so I told her and she said ...
Jessie: Why, I wouldn't miss this for the world.

Zack: Do you think I want to dress up as a girl?

(Jessie hands Zack a shaver) Zack: I don't need to shave ( touching his face)

Jessie: Your legs.

Aloha Slater [1.6]

Slater: What's happening here, Screech? Nobody wants me around anymore.

Kelly (as Juliet): If my kinsmen see thee, they will murder thee.
Slater: Go kinsmen!

Zack: Oh to be that straw sitting in my lady's cup! Gladly would I be made of plastic and risk drowning in a sea of cola to touch fair Kelly's lips.

Mr. Belding: It's a little early for the tiger suit, isn't it?

Zack: Yeah, I'm gonna be famous alright. Student Attacked by Blotchy Maroon Mob, film at eleven.

Charlie "Crater Face" Coburn: Alright, now what about my ten bucks?
Zack: Oh yeah, here you go.
Charlie "Crater Face" Coburn: Hey, wait a minute, Jason Bateman's not on a ten-dollar bill!
Zack: Oh, you noticed.

Zack: Did you wash your face today?
Screech: Why would I do that during the week?

Screech: Zack, quick, you've got to help me. My worst nightmare has come true!
Zack: You found out ALF was a puppet?

Zack: Alright, maybe the first day didn't turn out as I planned, but hey I'm just warming up. I love school. Too bad classes get in the way.
