It was a big hit on the internet earlier this week, but some fans are asking, where’s Lisa and Screech?

Jimmy Fallon reunited some members of the cast of the hit series “Saved by the Bell” on Wednesday night on “The Tonight Show.”

It was a skit that had Fallon attending the fictional school along with Zack Morris (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) and the gang.

Fallon hung out in the hall with “classmates” Morris, Kelly Kapowski (a pregnant Tiffani Thiessen), A.C. Slater (Mario Lopez) and Jessie Spano (Elizabeth Berkley) and administrator Mr. Belding (Dennis Haskins).

So where were Lisa and Screech?

A publicist for Lark Voorhies, who played Lisa Turtle, told E! News that:

“Lark would have loved to be part of the Jimmy Fallon skit (as she is a big fan of the show), however due to an intense work schedule she was not available.”

It has been confirmed that Dustin Diamond, who played Screech, couldn’t make it because he’s currently facing prison time for knifing a man during a bar fight.
