    • Cory: I didn't think Seniors still got detention.
      Mr. Feeny: They do when they act like two year olds.
      Cory : (Mockingly) They do when they act like two year olds.
      Mr. Feeny: Mr. Matthews when one mocks someone one should wait until they're not´╗┐ looking right at them!
      Cory: I'm not in my regular seat.

    • Eric: Hey, hey, hey! Now you're overreacting. There's only two people that are horribly dead. That's an acceptable loss.

    • Shawn: Let's calmly recap. Eric: Kenny's Dead! Feeny's Dead! We're trapped inside with the killer!

    • Topanga: I didn't stab him, he stabbed me! Cory: Oh I'd stab myself before I'd stab you. Kenny give me that pencil! Kenny: I don't have one!

    • Mr. Feeny (to the class): We'll return to The Young and the Restless, right after this word from Feeny. And here is the word: Shut up!

    • Feeny: Oooh Ramifications, nice word Jughead. Jughead is a character from the Archie Comics series.

    • Title: And Then There Was Shawn This may be a reference to the title of Agatha Christie's murder/mystery And Then There Were None.

    • Scary voice: Do you like scary movies? What's your favorite?
      : Oh, OK. I like that one with the hottie-hot-hot from Party of Five.
      : Neve Campbell?
      : Duh.

      This scene mimics the opening scene from Scream, starring Neve Campbell.

      It's also a nod to Jennifer Love Hewitt (Feffy) - another member of the Party of Five cast - who starred in a scary movie of her own, I Know What You Did Last Summer.

      Party of Five was a drama about 5 siblings, left on their own after the sudden death of their parents.

    • Feeny: We'll return to The Young and the Restless right after this word from Feeny. The Young And The Restless is a popular CBS soap opera.
