The "Saved By The Bell" Reunion On "The Tonight Show" Made Our Childhood Dreams Come True

Zack, Kelly, Jessie, Slater, and even Mr. Belding joined Jimmy Fallon for a trip down memory lane back to Bayside High.

The Tonight Show is currently filming in Los Angeles for the week, and after doing a spoof on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air on Monday, host Jimmy Fallon decided to take another trip down '90s-TV-show-set-in-California memory lane on Wednesday...

...to none other than Saved by the Bell's fictional Bayside High, where, Fallon said, he went to high school.

He even had the appropriate hot pink hazy frame to transition to the memory.

Of course, the unofficial king of Bayside, Zack Morris (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) was there...

...and blond as ever.

And he was having your average morning.

Or rather, he was repeating the show's legendary theme song.

A.C. Slater (Mario Lopez) was also there, using his signature slang.

As was his girlfriend, Jessie Spano (Elizabeth Berkley)!

Clearly, he wasn't kidding.

After a very important phone call...

Where does one keep a phone of such a size in one's tight acid-wash jeans?

...Jimmy delivered some terrible news.

NBC

Because he had big dreams.

Really big dreams.

But not as big as Jessie's...

...who was (yes) just so excited for Jimmy to follow his heart.

Mr. Belding (Dennis Haskins) tried to derail the conversation, but the kids pretty much ignored him.

What is going on here though? :(

And then Kelly (Tiffani Thiessen) arrived...

...and she had the most shocking news of all!

Zack needed a breather, but eventually he came around to the idea.

And he had big plans for their future...

But there was no time to think about marriage or Beverly Hills, because the best band in the world was soon blaring through Bayside, courtesy of Mr. Belding (aka DJ Richie the Big Bopper).

And Kelly and Zack took their singing and air guitar-playing very seriously.

Talkin' bout friends forever* here, people.
