Pill-poppin’ and jivin’! Elizabeth Berkley dished out the best serving ever of Saved by the Bell nostalgia on the Monday, Oct. 14 episode of Dancing with the Stars — livening up the proceedings with a jive number that paid tribute to her most iconic moment on the beloved high school teen sitcom.
For the night’s “Most Memorable Year of My Life” theme, Berkley, 41, recalled 1990, and the episode in which her character, Jessie Spano, gets hopped up on caffeine pills to cram for school. (A jittery Jessie memorably said “I’m so excited, I’m so excited . . . I’m so scared!”)
Berkley, in full late 80s/late 90s garb, stresses over a giant bottle of “Jive Pills” as pro partner Val Chmerkovskiy (clad in a varsity jacket, naturally) climbs through her bedroom window to soothe her. The music begins and the song selection is . . . the Pointer Sisters’ “I’m So Excited,” of course!
Among those rising to their feet to give the pair a standing ovation? Fellow Saved by the Bell alum Mario Lopez! The twosome scored a very healthy 26 out of 30 points from the judges.
Watch the dance now!
