SBTB 03.09 - Fake ID's

Terribly, terribly tragic.
We are supposed to believe that Screech (and everyone else in class, for that matter) can develop pictures in the light? I don't think so.

Now, we've got three women to talk about this time around. We'll start out with the sweetest of the three.
Melody Rogers
Zack's mom is played by Melody Rogers. She had a small load of Hollywood work but mostly made her name as a broadcaster, earning some Los Angeles Emmys for a show she hosted called "2 on the Town." She and her husband, Pat Kelly (another broadcaster), have recently written a book that chronicles Pat's struggles with dealing with MS. The book is called "And There Will Always Be Termites." She is currently a real estate agent.

The next lady: Danielle, the USC student who can't spot a 16 year old.
Julie St. Claire
Julie St. Claire came to Saved by the Bell fresh off a run on the old soap opera "Santa Barbara." I assume that she was recognized by savvy media watchers when the episode initially aired, but I don't recognize her at all. She later went on to act in every episode of "A.J.'s Time Travellers," a Saturday morning show on UPN that I never saw. (Remember UPN?) Then, between other acting jobs, she did something that I love: She acted on the same show as a different character. On the terrible "V.I.P.," she had a role as Carmen and then two years later as a character named Mona. But give her credit, she also stepped behind the camera to direct "The Legend of Cryin' Ryan." Right...

Our last dame:
Is that...? Could it be...? It is! Troll! Molly the Troll has made a triumphant return! It has been so long since we've seen her. Maybe even the whole season. Welcome back, dear.

Lastly, I'm sure Zack was going for the arms, but he missed. Badly.
Big time.

Feel free to share what stood out to you in the comments below.

Edit: As with other attractive ladies, I'll use this space to show off other appearances.

1) In 1989, Julie costarred with another SBTB alum in an episode of "Freddy's Nightmares" called "Do You Know Where Your Kids Are?" (That other alum is Suzanne Tara. Her write-up is here.) Julie's role is that of the best friend named Heidi who mainly just makes out with her boyfriend. She ultimately dies of a scissor wound and her body is dragged down a flight of stairs by a crazy girl.
Julie St. Clair - Freddy's Nightmares
Goodbye, sweet character Heidi. We hardly knew you.

(Note: This episode stars another SBTB alum in Suzanne Tara. You can find her write-up here.)
