Tiffani's Role

In The College Years, Kelly is trying to find her place. She struggles through jobs, guys, grades.


• Originally, the six main characters on the show were Zack Morris (Mark-Paul Gosselaar), A.C. Slater (Mario Lopez), Screech Powers (Dustin Diamond), Leslie Burke (Anne Tremko), Alex Taber (Kiersten Warren), and Danielle Marks (Essence Atkins). After the pilot, Tiffani-Amber Thiessen decided to return to play the role of Kelly Kapowski. Essence Atkins was fired and the plotline said she transferred to an unnamed college.

Kelly: It's been awhile since we talked till midnight. Remember that night in Palm Springs?
Zach: Well, technically that wasn't talking.
Kelly: Yeah, but we used our lips.
Kelly: Zack, what do you want from me?
Zack: I... I-I want you to marry me.
Kelly: What?
Alex: Life is so unfair. I have to lose two pounds within a few days!
Kelly: C'mon, two pounds is not going to hurt you.
Screech: Oh yeah? That's what Delta Burke said before she inhaled her first cheesecake.
