It's senior year at Bayside High! And there's a new girl from Idaho! And Zack and Slater sexually harass her!
"The Fight" opens with one of the more offensive moments in "Saved by the Bell" history, in which the boys make a noise and use an inappropriate gesture when referring to a certain person's dumb behavior. We're pretty sure this wasn't appropriate in 1992 either, but don't let that blight stop you from missing one of the most iconic moments in the show's history.
Zack and Slater have had a complicated friendship over the years, beginning with their competitive pursuit of Kelly back in season 1. Zack eventually won out, and the two bros made nice, but animosity has clearly been simmering for a while. All it takes is for a new girl, Joanna from Idaho, to spark an epic throwdown that involves pranks, shirt-grabbing and fists.
Yes, Zack and Slater actually throw punches in this episode, but that brawl (in which the preppie Zack holds his own against wrestling champion Slater) is nothing compared to the punchbowl-centric battle that caps this episode. Tyler and Jonah break down every single detail of this fight, including the punch to the pants, Mr. Belding's embarrassing toupee incident, and, of course, one of the show's most memorable Slater line deliveries. "Look, Preppie, you're all wet!"
Also in this episode, co-host Angela tries to figure out why she's participating in all this insanity.
