Jimmy Fallon is doing everything in his power to be considered the best Tonight Show host ever, and I think he is succeeding.
The best zingers, the most awesome one-liners, and for the love of all things holy, the same ’90s clothes. Yes, Jessie’s awesome ’90s hair and Slater’s black stone-washed jeans and tight-rolled shirt sleeves.
We get the cast members appearing as their original characters: Zack Morris (Mark-Paul Gosselaar), Kelly Kapowski (Tiffani-Amber Thiessen), A. C. Slater (Mario Lopez), Jessie Spano (Elizabeth Berkley) and Mr. Belding (Dennis Haskins).
We are missing Lisa Turtle (Lark Voorhies) and, of course, Screech (Dustin Diamond). The latter, of course, has been in some trouble with the law as of late so it’s no surprise he was absent from school that day.
Fallon enters the story line playing a younger version of himself. He tells the “teenagers” he wants to leave high school to… basically do all the things he did do in his life: join SNL, host a TV show and… well, one thing he missed the boat on — date Nicole Kidman.
Zack Morris chimes in that, “Jimmy going on a date with Nicole Kidman is like Jessie becoming a stripper.”
You’re not likely to forget the 1995 film Showgirls in which Berkley is… you guessed it, a stripper.
Check out the entire hilarious skit.
