  • Eric: I should've just taken the answers when Tori offered them to me. Jason: Well, that sounds like the end to a very good story. Care to tell me the beginning?

  • Uncle Mike: Mind if I pat you down? Mr. Turner (nervously): Not without dinner first.

  • Jason: At least it was multiple choice. Eric: Oh, come on. It was a Feeny test. Each question gives you eleven choices.

  • Eric: They're just grades. Mr. Feeny: Just grades? It's just Europe; and they're just girls; and it's just a beach; unless you happen to know that on that beach, in June of 1944, 150,000 troops landed and began the liberation of Europe, so that fifty years later those girls could run around on that beach in freedom.

  • Mr. Feeny: Alright. Who gave you the answers? Eric: Oh. Uh, why would you have to know that? Mr. Feeny: Because two people are involved in this and if I punish two instead of one I get a bonus at the end of the week.

  • Eric: I cheated, Mr. Feeny. I had the answers to the test written on my hand. Mr. Feeny: And you only managed an A minus? Eric: I sneezed off a couple of the answers.

  • Mr. Turner (About Uncle Mike fixing his bike): You understand that doesn't mean I give the kid a break on grades or anything. Uncle Mike: Like he needs it! Shawny's the scholar of the family! Mr. Turner: I think your tellin' me the truth.

Trivia (6)

  • Cory appears only briefly, as he is sick in bed with mono.

  • Eric asks why the girls restroom has a couch. Cory will repeat this inquiry in "Hair Today, Goon Tomorrow".

  • It is revealed that Jason's last name is Marsden, mirroring the actor who portrays him, Jason Marsden.

  • Eric lies to Mr Feeny, claiming to have gotten the test answers from "a guy in your class last year". Well, last year Mr. Feeny was still teaching 6th grade, so unless Eric is in a very remedial history course, Mr. Feeny shouldn't buy that for a second.

  • A sign in the hallway repeatedly changes from "Sex Ed", to a graffiti altered "Sex, Ed?". This is apparently an inside joke, that occurs several times in the series.
