Saved by the Bell

Show generally

New this month Question: During the opening credits, each main character is shown briefly in 3 sets of one second scenes from different episodes while the actor's or actress' name is shown. I've seen all the episodes these brief scenes come from except one... the first of 3 from Kelly (where she's waving her fingers). I've never been able to find this brief scene in any episode. Anybody know where this scene is from?

Question: In the very beginning of the series Zach, Lisa, Screech and Mr. Belding all live in Indiana and attend the same junior high. Somehow they all end up in Malibu, California attending the same high school. Does anyone else find this a little odd?

Chosen answer: The show that took place in Indiana that you are referring to was titled "Good Morning Miss Bliss." This show only lasted one season. The kids on the show, however, were popular so they decided to create a spin-off titled "Saved By the Bell," that aired on Saturday Mornings. I'm sure they changed the location because they thought the California setting would make the show more fun and watchable for pre-teens and teens.

No Hope With Dope - S3-E21

Question: At the start of the episode "No Hope With Dope", Lisa runs into the hallway with exciting news, and Zack responds to Lisa using a sentence ending with "you'll crack your makeup." The audience (primarily young females) starts screaming and cheering very loudly to that line. I am trying to understand what about that "crack your makeup" line was there to scream and go ga-ga about.

Chosen answer: Zack is always good for a sarcastic jibe. Lisa was written as the most fashion and make-up conscious of the Bayside High girls. She was also portrayed as serious and somewhat prissy. The "crack your makeup" comment was a throwaway line. Zack was suggesting Lisa doesn't often get overly excited for fear of having to reapply her face. The line is met by laughter and screeches from largely adolescent female audience that seem out of proportion to the humor. "Saved By the Bell" audiences were rather prone to such excessive ebullience for no apparent reason. The reaction didn't last long, and the scene moved on quickly.

Question: What happened to Kelly and Jessie in the episodes with Tori? Can someone explain what went on there.

Chosen answer: As far as I can tell Jessie and Kelly decided to leave the show because their contracts were up and they wanted to pursue other things. But there were still episodes of Saved by the Bell left to tape so Tori came along to fill that void. Jessie and Kelly were supposedly still at Bayside, but they were "off-screen." The graduation episode was filmed before Kelly and Jessie left the show.

Mistakes

When Zack is given the old newspaper with Mr. Belding's article, the headline reads, "Picture on pages 3 and 4." When he looks at the picture, he looks at the middle of the paper, with quite a few pages at both sides of the newspaper. Pages 3 and 4 would be near the front and would be on opposite sides of the same page.

Trivia

During the final 2 seasons of Saved by the Bell, most notably the season with Tori and the one following it, look for actor Casper Van Dien in the background of some episodes. He appeared in many scenes throughout the final 2 seasons as a random background extra, most notably in the locker hallway scenes. This was before he made it big in Hollywood.
