So, a while back my friend Matt and I decided to write some Saved by the Bell fan scripts. Basically, being long-time fans of the show, and also being of the absurdity of it (for instance, it is the ONLY show I have seen that seems to have absolutely no continuity whatsoever–it’s almost cartoony), we figured we could write something faithful to the series and at the same time a bit more realistic, using the archetypes of Zack, Kelly, Slater, etc. to really make something funny here. We forgot about these for a while, and have spent a bit of time cleaning them up and making them readable for people other than us.
Anyway, thought it might be fun to post on here. The SBTB legacy lives on, and apologies for the length!
Warning: There is some coarse language and adult situations in the script. You’ve been warned.
SAVED BY THE BELL: THE LOST EPISODES
EPISODE 1 – “BEACH SEASON”
MATT BUTLER AND ROBERT JAMES RUSSELL
INT. BAYSIDE, HALLWAY – MORNING
(ZACK comes down the stairs to the usual hallways, crowds of students passing on each side.)
ZACK: (to camera) Ah, the first day of spring. What a great time to be young. School’s almost done for the year, flowers blossom, love is in the air…
(A group of four GIRLS scantily clad in low-cut volley-ball outfits walk by and all give Zack a wink.)
ZACK: And more importantly, beach volleyball starts.
(The audience hoots as SLATER and SCREECH approach, followed by JESSIE, LISA, and KELLY.)
ZACK: Man I love this time of year!
KELLY: Wow, Zack, I’ve never seen you like this before. What gives?
ZACK: What gives?!
(Zack looks to SLATER and they both nod.)
ZACK/SLATER: BEACH SEASON!
(The girls grumble.)
SCREECH: I like going to the beach in the winter, it’s far less crowded.
LISA: Oh, so you can spare everybody seeing your pale, weak body?
SCREECH: No, my sweet, because I don’t want these guns getting anyone into trouble.
(SCREECH flexes his arms, the audience hoots and hollers and goes wild.)
