Saved by the Bell alum Elizabeth Berkley spoofed her former show on ABC's Dancing With the Stars on Monday night.

The actress, who played Jessie Spano on the 1989-93 series, re-created the memorable episode in which Jessie gets hooked on caffeine pills and starts overenthusiastically singing "I'm So Excited" as Zack (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) tries to tell her she needs help.

To kick off her Monday night performance, she tells dance partner Val Chmerkovskiy that she needs "jive pills" to dance and bursts into "I'm So Excited" before the two perform their dance to a version of the the Pointer Sisters' early-1980s hit.

As a bonus, her former Bell co-star Mario Lopez (A.C. Slater) was cheering her on in the audience.

While the judges weren't impressed by the dance, Carrie Ann Inaba thanked Berkley for "taking me back into a time warp and the best times of my life."
