More than Zack Morris’ giant cell phone or Kelly Kapowski’s teeny crop tops, Saved By The Bell is best known for Jessie Spano’s caffeine pill freak-out.
While competing on Dancing with the Stars this week, Elizabeth Berkley danced to “I’m So Excited,” The Pointer Sisters song that Jessie sang when it all came crashing down in her bedroom with Zack.
But before the music began, she and her partner Val Chmerkovskiy recreated the scene that she couldn’t live down if she wanted to. (But clearly, she doesn’t.)
Only this time, she was addicted to the jive, instead of caffeine pills. Because, of course.
Val busted in on Elizabeth clutching her giant jive pill bottle.
She pleaded with him to let her keep the pills with Jessie’s emphatic, “I NEED THEM!!!!!”
But this time, it was slightly less desperate.
When that didn’t work, she sang, “I’m so excited. I’m so exciiiited. I’m so…”
Apparently, it only took 23 years to get over the fear (and the sobbing).
Though the sentiment may have changed, Elizabeth’s ability to shake it has remained constant.
