Lisa Turtle, where art thou?!

Jimmy Fallon gifted the world with an epic Saved By the Bell reunion on The Tonight Show, with Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Tiffani Thiessen, Mario LopezElizabeth Berkeley and Dennis Haskins all reprising their iconic roles from the hit '90s series. While the skit was no doubt amazing, we (and the Internet) couldn't help but notice two of the Bayside's gangs were MIA: Lark Voorhies, who played fashionista Lisa Turtle, and Dustin Diamond, aka Screech. 

So, why wasn't Voorhies helping her former co-stars give us major flashbacks feelings on Wednesday night? 

"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," her publicist tells E! News.

Voorhies was last spotted making a rare public appearance at a farmer's market in L.A. in September 2014, just one day after Lifetime's The Unauthorized Saved By the Bell Story premiered. "I did not watch, and will not watch," Voohries tweeted of the TV movie.

After leaving Bayside behind when the series wrapped in 1994, Voorhies appeared on The Bold and the Beautiful and In The House.

While no explanation has yet to been given regarding Diamond's absence, the actor pleaded not guilty to stabbing a man in December. The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story was told primarily from his perspective and he served as a producer.

Still, it doesn't seem like many of the cast members would want to reunite with Diamond due to his scandalous tell-all, which was the primary source material for The Unauthorized Saved By the Bell Story.  Of the book, Gosselaar said, "Everything that I've heard about his book is negative and I don't remember those things."

But it looks like there's still a chance a full reunion sometime in the future as Gosselaar took to Twitter after The Tonight Show skit aired, writing, "Thank you for all the love and support. I'm so happy you enjoyed tonight. Let's do it again sometime. Good night."

(E! and NBC are both members of the NBCUniversal family.)
