I didn’t have much time to write an in depth 80s or 90s themed post this weekend (I was vacationing in L.A.), so instead I’ll remind you of a classic Saved by the Bell moment. Remember the episode where Jessie was so stressed out about school that she started taking caffeine pills, and developed an unhealthy dependence on them? The climactic scene (see below) features Zach confronting her, and a struggle ensues over the pill box, resulting in Jessie bursting out into a very dramatic rendition of the Pointer Sisters’ “I’m So Excited.”

This scene is the epitome of Saved by the Bell cheesiness, but it has stuck with me over the years. Being the dork that I am, I have reenacted Jessie’s emotional rollercoaster from this scene many times.

Do you have any favorite Saved by the Bell episodes or moments? As ridiculous as the show was, it was still fun to watch. Click here to read about it on Wikipedia.
