An Ode to Saved By the Bell

Thank you Emily for reminding me of how great this show really is! I'd forgotten until I read your blog...

Okay, so not an "ode" per say, because I'm simply not a poet, but that show was greatness!

I suppose it's a sign of being in the 30-ish and female age range as my younger co-workers don't have a clue what I'm talking about should I happen to quote a line or two. But hey, those guys graduated from high school within a year or two of me! Makes 'em close to my heart, I suppose.

So, in honor of the greatest Saturday morning teen "Dramady" ever, here's my list of some of the more memorable moments:

  • Slater's mullet
  • "I'm so excited! I'm so excited! I'm so... so... I'm so SCARED Zack!"
  • "No time, there's never enough time!!"
  • Zack and Kelly's "Prom"
  • The evil Jeff... He was much better on Days of Our Lives.
  • Slater's poor dead chameleon
  • Zack screwing things up, being thought of as a screw-up, then saving the day at the end. (Actually, that was pretty much the plot line of most episodes ;-) ).

That's it so far for a little Friday afternoon frivolity. Back to work...

I love it! Remember the ones when the gang worked at Lisa's Beach Club and Zack dated the girl who's now on King of Queens.

Stacy Karosi! Of course! Then there was Jesse, the drama queen (admit it, we all knew she'd end up in Showgirls) ruining her dad's wedding to the golddigger. That show is just too classic for words.
