Right down to the hair bow, Elizabeth nailed the “Saved by the Bell” look.
“I’m so excited. I’m so scared.” Every “Saved By The Bell” super-fan remembers these lines from the classic episode in which Jessie Spano almost overdoses on caffeine pills, and on last night’s “Dancing With The Stars,” Elizabeth Berkley reenacted the iconic scene with her dance partner, Val Chmerkovskiy. He didn’t exactly look the part of Zack Morris, but the guy’s definitely got some acting chops!
In the dance floor skit, shown in the video below, Elizabeth demands she take “Jive” pills to perform, but Val dissuades her from relying on the (fake) drugs. She realizes she’s no longer “scared” but “ready,” and dances like a pro to The Pointer Sisters’ hit song, sans pills. See, kids? Just say no!
Another fun surprise for the former “SBTB” actress? She wasn’t the only Bayside alum in the room! Her old co-star, Mario Lopez, finally showed up in support, and while he was cheering on his former TV girlfriend from the sidelines, more of Liz’s teen besties like Tiffani Thiessen and Mark-Paul Gosselaar tweeted their support. “’I’m so excited’…on DWTS…TONIGHT!!! @ElizBerkley possibly bring back “The Sprain”?! …I’m so scared,” MPG wrote.
