If you ever watched "Saved by the Bell" on NBC in the early '90s, chances are you remember the famous scene where Elizabeth Berkley's character Jessie Spano totally freaks out on caffeine pills.
It may have traumatized you as a teen, but if you happen across a rerun of the overly dramatic, soap-tastic moment these days, it will likely make you laugh. Which is exactly why Berkley's re-enactment of the famed scene on "Dancing With the Stars" on Monday night had viewers howling with joy.
"I need them. I need them, Zack, I have to sing!" is what a frizzy-haired Spano shouts at Zack (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) on "Saved by the Bell" before launching into a frantic a cappella version of "I'm So Excited," and collapsing into his arms in tears.
On "DWTS," Berkley is shown holding a bottle labeled "Jive pills" and when her partner Val Chmerkovskiy bounds Zack-like through her bedroom window she says, "I need them, Val. I need them to jive!" Only instead of tears a bell rings and she launches into a saucy dance routine to the original version of "I'm So Excited."
As a bonus, her former "Saved by the Bell" costar Mario Lopez (who played A.C. Slater on the show) was in the audience cheering her on.
"God, I love you so much for doing that!" effused judge Carrie Ann Inaba.
