Yesterday, I washed our bedspread. It wasn't dry by midnight so I scoured the house for a temporary replacement.
This is apparently Dan's comforter from middle school, which he brought to Iowa because...? Now I'm wondering if there's a collection of Treasure Trolls in the hall closet. Or maybe a hamburger phone.
Dan swears this comforter is an exact replica of the one Zack Morris had on Saved By the Bell. I
wasted spent a solid hour watching YouTube tribute videos trying to spot Zack's room. I learned that not a lot of scenes take place in Zack's room. However, in one particularly moving homage to Kelly and Zack's relationship, set to Dido's "White Flag," it appears that his bedspread is just a very plain, very unsquiggly blue. Maybe to avoid overpowering the curtains?
Dan said duh, he wasn't talking about Zack's bedspread in the first two seasons. I asked him how many bedspreads did Zack Morris have, and why do you remember them? Dan said maybe four. OK smarty, but how many George Michael posters did he have?
(That may or may not be Kelly's room.)
I can't find our bedspread in any episodes. In SBTB the College Years, when Zack wasn't buying up more posters at the Cal-U quad sale, he apparently slept on a bunk bed under a polar fleece.
Here's a still of Zack throwing Kelly onto one of those other "latter season" bedspreads. Given the way her hair is whiping against her face to form a beard, and her frenzied propulsion towards the American flag, I like to imagine Zack is fighting off a terrorist.
Maybe Dan is just confusing his own coming-of-age bedspread with the colorful geometric partitions in The Max.
So, basically, I don't believe my boyfriend. But I did find proof that Kelly was clutching my childhood teddy bear.
Can anybody out there corroborate Dan's story?
