FOX premiered the Beverly Hills, 90210 reunion Wednesday, and the late Luke Perry was noticeably present. ET recapped three moments from the sort-of-reality, sort-of-reunion show where Perry's presence was definitely felt:

The Gang's (almost) all here. When Tori Spelling, Jennie Garth, Jason Priestley, Ian Ziering, Brian Austin Green, and Gabrielle Carteris all meet up again for the first time, Carteris says. "I can't believe that we are all here." Priestley responds, "I wish that were true," as a mournful tune begins to play.

Cheers to Luke. After Tori steals a red dress from the old show and tells the gang it "symbolizes everything that we created together," she adds, “We’re not all gonna be here forever, but we made something that will be.” Priestley raises his glass and says simply, "To Luke."

Welcome to paradise, man. In the episode's final scene, Garth and Spelling are on a couch as an old episode of Beverly Hills, 90210 plays in the background. Spelling says, "Maybe going back is just what we all need to move forward." The scene flashes back to a young Perry, who says, "Welcome to paradise, man. Welcome to your dream come true." Perry's face lingers on screen as the first episode of BH90210 comes to a close.
