Alison Brie on 'Saved by the Bell'

"The first thing that came to mind, and I'm going to stick by this, is Saved by the Bell. I know, I know! Look, I'm aware there have been a number of amazing TV shows that have come and gone in the last 20 years, but this was the first show that affected me as a kid. I owned the board game. I had a crush on Zach Morris. I wanted to dress like Lisa Turtle, I wanted to be Kelly Kapowski."

"I have to say, during all of the Community table reads we've had over the years, I'd find myself constantly re-evaluating which SBTB character the Community characters would be. Annie had started out as a Jessie, but as she's grown up, maybe she's become more of a Kelly? Troy really started as the Slater of the group, the football player who Annie had a crush on…then he and Abed sort of formed into one big super-Screech. And of course Joel McHale is Zach. [Pause] I've thought about this way too much, actually."
