Any respecting fan of Jimmy Fallon knows that it has been his lifelong dream to reunite the cast of the late 80s-mid 90s teen sitcom Saved by the Bell. That wish came true last night, as the The Tonight Show host finally realized his mission by gathering (most) of the actors from this iconic and beloved show for a reunion that he also got to take part in.
The now-grown cast members all gathered to join Jimmy Fallon for a very heartwarming and hilarious 8-minute skit. Featured where Mark-Paul Gosselaar reprising his role as Zack Morris alongside Mario López as A.C. Slater, Tiffani Thiessen as Kelly, Elizabeth Berkley as Jessie, and Dennis Haskins as Mr. Belding. Noticably absent was Dustin Diamond as Screech, whose recent brushes with the law and his participation in the The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story movie may have kept him away. Also missing was Lark Voorhies, who played Lisa Turtle.

There are quite a few in-jokes that may fly over the heads of non-fans. And they even get a jab in at Showgirls for her role in Showgirls. Is this the reunion you always wanted to see? Or is it time for a full-blown reunion movie? That just might happen. In the meantime, this will do:
