  • Zack finally asks Kelly to be his wife

    This is one of the stand-out episodes of The College Years. It contains the moment a majority of fans of the original SBTB show have been waiting for since the beginning - Zack Morris finally proposes to long-time love and girlfriend Kelly Kapowski.

    Zack and Kelly have finally overcome their obstacles and are now dating. All is well, until Dean McMann announces Kelly has a place on a cruise overseas for a semester. Zack is obviously devastated, as he knows she will accept the offer, and he can't bear the thought of losing her again like he did in high school. A dream he has of her kissing another guy on the cruise forces him to take drastic measures before its too late. He wakes up Kelly at night, and proposes to her in front of roommates Alex and Leslie. Kelly's shocked, and initially thinks he's just doing it through fear of losing her. But he assures her he's wanted to propose for years, as he's always known he wants to spend the rest of his life with her. Kelly at first rejects his proposal, assuring him she'll only be gone a few months. But later that day, just as the cruise ship is about to set sail, Kelly changes her mind once she realises Zack is serious and so are their feelings for each other. She accepts his proposal this time and they rush back to the college dorms together.

    A happy ending to an eventful episode. A memorable one for Kelly/Zack fans.
